Bestowal dialogue

'I've lived a long time here in Bree-land, but in my long life I've never taken the time to learn the land's history. Now, near the end of my days, I found I wanted to know what came before.

'I joined this trip to the Barrow-downs with hopes of finding some keepsakes or to take some rubbings, but it seems the Barrow-downs had a design of its own. I remember tromping over the hills as a lad and seeing that some of the barrows had fallen into a ruin. I remember lots of broken stones, covered in rune-letters, littering the ground, especially near the "Dead Spire." I wanted a few of those stones for my own.

'Are you interested in bringing me, say, three of the stone fragments from near the Dead Spire? Perhaps we can both learn a bit of history.'

Tobold Leafcutter: 'What? Fell creatures attacked you as you tried to gather these stones? I had not seen them. The guides kept us well shielded from whatever it was that was attacking the, I am glad that you fares so well, friend.
'Well, these runes reveal nothing new. Each stone gives a bit of an account of the man who was buried there. There's nothing to reveal why these terrible creatures have taken up in those barrows. This is quite a mystery.'
