Bestowal dialogue

'I will tell you the story of the fall of Moria, if you will hear it. Perhaps one day your part in our expedition to reclaim this place will be an important narrative for a new tale, eh?

'I warn you thus: it is a sad story. Only now do we endeavour to give it a happier ending.'


Skygni wishes to tell you the tale of the fall of Moria so that you can better appreciate what the expedition has accomplished.

Objective 1

Skygni is in the Twenty-first Hall in Moria.

Skygni has agreed to tell you the tale of the fall of Moria.

Objective 2

Ráthwald is by the archway near the camp of Echad Dúnann in Eregion.

Ráthwald has told you the tale of the fall of Moria and is waiting to speak with you.

Ráthwald: 'Though Náin and his kinsmen stood against the great evil that slew Durin, they did not stand long: Náin was killed by the shadow the following year and the dwarves were forced to abandon Khazad-dûm. Many of the Silvan Elves departed Lothlórien in anger and fear, flying southward and cursing the dwarves as they went.
'From time to time some brave dwarf has been known to seek those halls. Lord Balin is the most recent, but despite some encouraging reports shortly after his expedition arrived, we have not heard from him in many years, and begin to despair of finding him again.
'Bósi fears that he has perished, but it could be that Balin lives still within some deep hall. It is possible, but my thoughts are like to Bósi's. Thank you for listening to the tale, my friend. You see now how important this expedition is to my people.'
