Bestowal dialogue

'Please...there is but one last of my kin in the Midgewater Marshes. Reniolind is his name. A young scholar of my kind. He was not here when Amdir came and may yet be alive.

'Go to him quickly. He had gone to study the ruins of the old Marshwater Fort at the centre of the Marshes. You must tell him...warn beware Amdir's scream!'


When you entered the Mustering Cave, you found you were too late to help Mundol. Amdir had already come and mortally wounded him.

Objective 1

Reniolind can be found in the old Marshwater Fort, which lies at the centre of the Midgewater Marshes, west of the Mustering Cave.

Mundol asked that you warn the last of the Rangers in the Midgewater Marshes, Reniolind, a young scholar, of Amdir's betrayal.

Mundol: 'It is too…late for me. The wounds are mortal. Even now I…can feel my life slipping away….
'Hurry…warn Reniolind! he should be in the ruins of the…old Marshwater Fort at the centre…of the Midgewater Marshes!'

Objective 2

Barliman Butterbur can be found in the common room of The Prancing Pony Inn in Bree-town.

With Reniolind's dying breaths, he asked you to find his chieftain, Strider. He instructed you to speak with Barliman Butterbur, the proprietor of The Prancing Pony Inn in Bree, to learn where Strider may be found.

Barliman Butterbur: 'Well now, what is it I can do for you today?'
