Bestowal dialogue

'Our fellowship from Orc-watch didn't make it far before parting ways. We camped here for a night, then arguments broke out about what we should do next with ranks of Orcs in the way. The two dwarves who headed to the southern caverns were well-prepared, but the two who headed east -- straight into the Orcs' territory -- have me concerned. Please, <name>, can you look for them and make sure that they made it where they were going?

'They went straight into the middle of the Orcs' territory, believing there was a safe road between those Orc-tribes' encampments.'

Background

Knakk and Kafli headed East when the dwarf-fellowship parted ways at the base of the stairs from Orc-watch. They deemed the Orcs only a bump in the road and that they could find a path through Orc-territory and make camp on the far side of the Redhorn Lodes.

Objective 1

  • Search for the dwarves that headed east

The two dwarves, Knakk and Kafli, should be found somewhere to the east, around or beyond the Orcs' territory.

You have been asked to find the dwarves Knakk and Kafli.

Clutched in this dwarf's cold, rigid hand is a beautifully hand-carved locket. After fiddling with it, you have come to realize that it is not a normal locket and will not easily open. This should be taken to this fallen dwarf's companion, who probably kept going without him and should be somewhere to the east.

Objective 2

Knakk must have kept going after Kafli fell to the Orcs, but probably is not far away. He surely would not have wanted to leave his friend behind....

Knakk: 'Kafli and I tried to sneak past the Orcs...and we almost made it here! I think it was that necklace he was holding that gave him away. It was pretty shiny.
'I told him when we left the fellowship's camp that he should hide it in a pocket or something, but he refused, thinking something would snatch it from him while his hand was not on it. I cannot believe he lost his life for that thing.'
