Bestowal dialogue

'You have been a tremendous help to us, <name>, and have aided us with so many tasks! You have helped us to explore both the Brackwater and Filgogân for lost friends and hidden treasure, and have stood tall against the threats within.

'But the halls and caverns of Khazad-dûm may hold even greater danger, and I want you to know what you will be getting into before you follow us past the Doors of Durin.

'Return to Ráthwald, on guard by the camp of Echad Dúnann, where the road passes beneath the old Elf-arch, and have him tell you the tale of the fall of Moria. They were dark times, but you should know the story, even if you have heard it before.'

Background

Because you have provided a great deal of assistance to the dwarves of Bósi and Brogur's expedition, they want to ensure that you know the story of Moria's fall before you help them further.

Objective 1

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

You have provided much assistance to the dwarves of the expedition, and should now return to Ráthwald to hear the tale of the fall of Moria.

Ráthwald: 'You have already lent great service to our expedition, <name>, and I do not wish to be held responsible if you come to a…bad sort of end. The history of Khazad-dûm is sad and grim, and it is Bósi's wish that all who lend their aid to our cause know what might await them inside the mines.
'I will tell you the story of the fall of Moria, if you will hear it, and give reasons why Khazad-dûm is called "Moria" by the Elves: "Black Pit."
'Listen well, and if you still wish to follow the dwarves into Moria, we can talk it over.'

Objective 2

  • Talk to Ráthwald and listen to the tale of the fall of Moria
  • Do not fail The Fall of Moria session

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

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

Objective 3

  • Talk to Ráthwald
  • Do not fail The Fall of Moria session

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 fled Lothlórien in terror of the nameless 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.'
