Bestowal dialogue

'<name>, I have been speaking to Hórin about the Stave of Veluk-zámok. We are both in agreement that the tales of this artifact and of Borin's battle with Etterfang are closely intertwined. We feel certain that to find the Stave, we must find the beast. And yet - we cannot simply follow the path she took deep into the mountain!'

'What have you found? Let me see . . .
'Yes, Etterfang Foulmaw, a fierce worm of smaller proportion, last seen in the Glimmerdeep . . . aha! Now here we have something she was a beast of both venom and flame . . . and sister of Smaug! Known to burrow deep within the stone, feasting on what may be found there, including spiders. Some hold it is from these she gains her venom. . .
'A smaller dragon, given to crawling through deep stone? This strikes me as the beginning of an answer, <name>, Yes . . . let me ponder a moment.'
