Bestowal dialogue

'There were many wolves on the path, and they became even more maddened the nearer I came to Ost Thondol, which lies on the height right above me. They would not pass the foot of the hill, however, so I pressed on...only to encounter Stone-trolls in the ruins above.

'I sensed something else there, as well, but I know not what it was, for the trolls there were to many for me, and I was forced to retreat. They were nearly my death.

'If you wish to be of true aid to Elladan and Elrohir, head up the hill to Ost Thondol and seek the source of the evil there. Whatever it is, even the wolves fear it...'

Background

The Elf-scout Pothlorn was wounded in an encounter with Stone-trolls while scouting Ost Thondol.

Objective 1

The ruins of Ost Thondol can be found atop the hill, north-west of Pothlorn.

Pothlorn asked you to search the ruins of Ost Thondol for the evil he sensed during his battle with the Stone-trolls.

You are confronted by a creature most foul...a worm-wight

Objective 2

The worm-wight is in the ruins of Ost Thondol, north-west of Pothlorn's hiding place.

You should attempt to destroy the worm-wight, which appears to be leading the trolls of Ost Thondol.

Defeated the worm-wight

Objective 3

Pothlorn is hiding among the rocks at the base of the hill, south-east of Ost Thondol.

You should return to Pothlorn and let him know what you discovered within Ost Thondol.

Pothlorn: 'What? A wight in the form of a worm? This is an evil omen indeed. A wight is not empowered of itself, but filled with a spirit of evil, placed there by an even greater evil. You must return to Elladan at once and tell him what you found here. I will come when I am able.

Objective 4

Elladan is at Thorenhad, north-west of Pothlorn's hiding place.

Pothlorn told you to return to Elladan and tell him what you discovered.

Elladan: 'A worm-wight? That explains the uneasiness many of us have felt here for the last few weeks. Pothlorn is right...a greater evil had to have placed the creature at Ost Thondol. The first to come to mind would be the Black Captain, but he was thrown down in the Bruinen and sent horseless back to his master.
'Nevertheless, we must find the master of the worm-wight at all costs. My brother Elrohir sent a scout into Nan Tornaeth, where some worms dwell. You should speak with Elrohir.'
