Bestowal dialogue

'Have you heard of the fabled underground realm, Thafar-gathol, the Grey Citadel? No dwarf has ever found it, but the lost realm is said to exist somewhere in these northern mountains. I have brought a moon-letter from the east with me. It is said this letter contains a clue as to the location of Thafar-gathol. The tale goes, if a great dwarf finds the Stave of Veluk-zámok, the path to Thafar-gathol will become clear.

'Here, you may borrow the moon-letter, if you like. I am at an end with this riddle. I am no closer to finding the Stave now than I was before I came to Ered Mithrin.'

'Perhaps, perhaps not all hope is lost.'
