Bestowal dialogue

'It seems that defeating those Orcs to the north was not enough. A scout sent word that a band of Blogmal and Krahjarn Orcs are approaching Gabilshathûr! They must have been angered by your assault!

'Please, join the other guards and help defend Gabilshathûr. Hurry! There is little time to prepare!'


Gabilshathûr is in danger. A raiding party of Orcs is making their way toward the dwarf-holding and may overrun it.

Objective 1

Orcs are moving against Gabilshathûr.

Guard-captain Gisur has asked you to help defend Gabilshathûr against an Orc-attack.

Guard-captain Gisur: 'Look to your weapon, friend! I fear the Orcs may be upon us in a few moments. We can only hope that they are not aware of our force here, and that they are but a small raiding-party.'
  • Protect Gabilshathûr
Guard-captain Gisur says, "Guards! Make ready! We may be attacked any moment!"
Gabilshathûr Guard says, "The Orcs! They're coming to arms!"
Gabilshathûr Guard says, "To arms! We are under attack!"
Gabilshathûr Guard says, "Sir! A patrol of Orcs is heading this way! They'll be here at any moment!"
Guard-captain Gisur says, "Guards! Form up! Prepare to repel an assault!"
Gabilshathûr Guard says, "Aye!"
Gabilshathûr Guard says, "Aye!"
Gabilshathûr has been saved
Guard-captain Gisur says, "Ha! That's the end of them, I think."
Guard-captain Gisur says, "All right. Guards, return to your posts."

Objective 2

  • Talk to the Guard-captain Gisur

Guard-captain Gisur is at Gabilshathûr.

You have helped stave off the Orc-attack and should speak with Gisur, now that the danger is over.

Guard-captain Gisur: 'By Durin's beard! Did you see? That raiding-party was much smaller than any who have raided us in the past! Your efforts weren't for naught. And perhaps -- after the setback they suffered today -- they will think twice about coming here again. Hopefully, their pride will prevent them from telling any of their masters that a few dwarves defeated them so soundly!
'It seems that, for now, we are safe. You have our thanks, <name>, and what little reward I can give you, I will.'
