Bestowal Dialogue

'We have both been through a lot lately, and I think a rest might be well-deserved. Do you know what I find most relaxing? The ancient [non-Beornings: Beorning] art of baking, [Beornings: as it is practiced by our people,] of course! Would you like to help me bake a honey cake? This will not be just any old cake, I assure you. This will be of the very type that Beorn of old used to bake himself! [Beornings: Have you ever made one of these before, <name>?] There are easier recipes to follow, but this is not a day for easy. I rest best when I am tested! Does that make any sense?

'Come see me if you have questions about the process.'

Background

Hállkell has decided to enlist you in making the perfect honey cake.

Objective 1

  • Gather wheat (0/6)
  • Collect seeds (0/10)
  • Gather honey (0/4)

Wild wheat and seeds can be found north and east of the Beorninghús.

You should collect wheat and seeds for your honey cake.

Hállkell: 'The recipe? Yes, of course! You will need to gather wild wheat, seeds, and honey, all from the Beorning-lands. Then the wheat and seeds must be ground very well. Next you add the wild honey to the mixture. Honey from the farm will not do for this step! No, that honey is far too domesticated, and Beorn's original recipe calls for wild honey!
'Once the mixture is properly mixed, it is time to bake it, but don't let it cook for too long! The best honey cake is moist and not too dry!'


Gathered wheat (6/6)
Collected seeds (10/10)
Gathered honey (4/4)

That is a nice looking cake!

Objective 8

Hállkell can be found at the Beorninghús.

You should show your perfect honey cake to Hállkell.

Beorning version:


Hállkell: 'Now that honey cake looks simply perfect, and it smells even better! Well done cousin! Your skill at the oven has not fallen since you left on your journey. That honey cake has your own signature, and it is truly a dessert of which you should be proud.

Non-Beorning version:


Hállkell: 'Now that honey cake looks simply perfect, and it smells even better! Well done, my friend! This is your very first honey cake? I would almost not believe it! You will find this honey cake recipe bakes differently for everyone who tries to make one. Truly a signature of the baker, if you will.

All:


'Did you find the process as restful and relaxing as I did? I hope so!'


On completion:

Hállkell says, "A good bake and the bottom is not soggy at all!"
