Bestowal dialogue

'<name>, it occurs to me now that I recall seeing smoke and ashes in the air near the eaves of Fangorn while I was wandering back from Blackthorn's grove. Now that I consider it, it seems strange, for the forest there was not burned, and my folk seldom go so close to Fangorn.

'Will you journey to that place -- it is west of here -- and learn if my memories are true and not simply imaginings of my maddened mind?'


Now that his mind is beginning to clear, Thane Béortnoth recalls seeing smoke and ashes in the air near the eaves of Fangorn when he was wandering back to Thornhope from the forest.

Objective 1

  • Investigate the smoke and ashes near the eaves of Fangorn

The place where Béortnoth recalled seeing the ashes and smoke lies to the west of Thornhope.

Thane Béortnoth has asked you to investigate the cause of the smoke he saw.

Mysterious Old Man: 'Ah, <name>, I have been waiting for you. Yes, I know you…and you know me, though you may not realize it yet.
'I have heard from Blackthorn, an Ent of Fangorn, that you have been aiding your Béortnoth of Thornhope. His hopes of restoring his home, alas, are in vain…at least until this War is ended and the Orvs are driven forth.
'Nevertheless, there are a few things you may yet do to hasten the victory of the Free Peoples in Rohan.'
