Bestowal dialogue

'Reeve Athelward has asked us to remain on watch against the Orcs and to ensure the safety of the city. We repelled the single attempted infiltration of Cliving, and in the time since, no Orcs have dared to try again. All the while, the Orcs are free to roam our lands, pillaging and raiding as they see fit.

'I mean no disrespect to Reeve Athelward, but I know that we could greatly benefit were we to ride against the Orcs in the fields. My men all agree, save Léofcetel. Please speak with him and convince him that riding against our foes is the correct course of action.'


Garmund believes that the men in his éored must act for the sake of the Norcrofts, even against the will of Reeve Athelward. Not all men share his sentiments, and some refuse to disobey the Reeve.

We have all sworn oaths to protect these lands and the people that live upon them. I wish to uphold those oaths and to bring justice to the trespassers against the plains of Rohan. I will gladly face the consequences, if my deeds preserve even a yard of my homeland.
'I welcome you to ride with us, <name>. We intend to strike fear into these brutes and pillagesr.'
