Bestowal Dialogue

'Maybe this isn't important <name>, but I keep hearing the faint sound of drumming from the woods near here.

'Some say there are spirits and strange creatures in the woods. I've never believed such things because I've never seen anything strange in the Grey Wood. That being said, I've never been in the Grey Wood so what do I know!

'Look, what concerns me is that the drumming might be some Orcs looking to attack us from behind. It might be worth checking out. At the very least, if you look into it and it isn't anything, it will put me at ease.'

'What a peculiar and very small staff! This isn't from an Orc, but where have I seen it before? Let me think...
'Ah yes, from children's tale of the Woses! Do you know of these stories? They're about small creatures that live in the woods and love nature.
'Perhaps there is more to this tale than I thought! That would certainly explain those strange, old Púkel-men statues about the edge of the forest! Well, I am glad there isn't an army of Orcs in the Grey Wood after all!'
