Bestowal dialogue

Well, hullo there! You seem a bit of an adventurous sort...perhaps you wouldn't mind helping out an old hobbit?

'You see, I have been writing a book about my travels with Thorin and his Company -- off to deal with Smaug and get Thorin's gold back -- and I am afraid I may have gotten confused on some details. My memory isn't what it used to be, and I am unsure of the directions to some of the places we visited.

'Perhaps you would help me? All you need to do is find the Back Door of Goblin-town...if you find the place, I have remembered them a-right. High in the mountains, along the stretch called the High Pass, we travelled and at night found a dry place in a cave midway up the mountain. You should find the entrance there. If not, well, try and find the correct directions for me, if you would be so kind.'


Bilbo Baggins has completed his book and would like to make certain that his memory of the important locations is correct.

Objective 1

Bilbo Baggins described the location and advised you to use his description to find the hidden entrance to Goblin-town that he and the dwarves of Thorin's Company once came across on their journeys long ago.

Bilbo Baggins would like you to help him correct the directions to Goblin-town that he has written in his book.

Bilbo Baggins: 'Those directions I gave you should lead you straight to the doorstep of Goblin-town...I hope.'
You have discovered the hidden entrance to Goblin-town

Objective 2

Bilbo Baggins is at the Last Homely House in Rivendell, south of Goblin-town.

Having completed the task Bilbo set you to, you should return to him at Rivendell.

Bilbo Baggins: 'Oh, you found it! That is wonderful.
'Do you know, we found the doorstep quite by accident. We were camping there, taking refuge from a storm and some wayward boulders -- the giants were out playing catch, I suppose -- and were set upon by goblins!
'Gandalf the Grey blasted a few, but we were captured and dragged down to Goblin-town. From there, the tale only gets more exciting.'
