Bestowal dialogue

'There is no time to delay, <name>. I saw them take Sterkist further north. We must pursue them! Go. I will be right behind you.'


One of the Beornings has been found, but Sterkist is still missing. Langhár needs your help rescuing him from the clutches of the Taurogrim.

Objective 1

The Taurogrim took Sterkist further north.

You should look for Sterkist.

The cart belonging to the Beornings was left behind here
Langhár says, "This is our cart! Sterkist was here! The tracks lead to the East. We should hurry!"

Objective 2

Langhár has run further into the woods, to the North.

You should find Langhár.

BEORNING PRINT "Prints left by a Beorning."
The Beorning prints continue in this direction
Langhár: 'Sterkist is through here. I am certain! We will surely have to face the Taurogrim inside. Come with me!'

Objective 3

Sterkist has been taken by the Taurogrim!

You should save Sterkist!

Langhár: 'Hurry; we must save Sterkist!'

Objective 4

You have escaped the Taurogrim and rescued Sterkist.

You should talk to Langhár and Sterkist.

Langhár: 'We appear to be safe, for now. You are quite the fighter, <name>. Thank you for helping Sterkist. It is about time we move on and return home, I think.'
Sterkist: 'Thank you for your help, friend. I cannot say I expected to be kidnapped by mythical wood-trolls on this journey! Our task was to trade with the Elves of Felegoth and then return. Oh, that reminds me. I think many of the things from our cart are scattered about the woods...'

Objective 5

You have escaped the Taurogrim and rescued Sterkist.

You should talk to Thorlind.

Thorlind: 'The Beornings may catch their breath here for a short time, but should not tarry long. I will keep watch, but must soon return to Felegoth. We are still near to danger.
'The Taurogrim have returned and at a time when the spiders have all but vanished. I do not think this a coincidence. They were a dangerous enemy of my people long ago, and we must not allow them to return to force unfettered. I have some more work for you, friend, while we are near to their encampment.
'After you have ensured the Beornings are safely at the Forest Gate, you should report this threat to King Thranduil. I will return myself after I am finished here.'
