Bestowal dialogue

'While you were gone, Lindir told me he has come up with something interesting for our game. Apparently, he found a new riddle on the back of some old parchment out of Gondor.'

Background

Lindir has found a new riddle for you to solve. Again, he is sure the answer can be found somewhere in Imladris.

Objective 1

Lindir is with Bilbo in The Hall of Fire at Rivendell.

Lindir has a new riddle to offer.

Lindir: 'Parchment can be difficult to find at times in the world of Men, so I am not all that surprised to find a riddle scrawled on the back of some old chronicles of Gondor. Perhaps some young scribe of the Tower had overmuch time of his hands....
'It just so happens that the answer can again be found in Imladris:
'Breath is needed
Warning heeded
Some will arrive
With sword and knife
My work is completed
'Til once more I'm needed'

Objective 2

  • Find the answer to Lindir's riddle somewhere in Rivendell

The answer to Lindir's riddle can be found somewhere in Rivendell.

Lindir has asked you to find an item that provides an answer to his riddle.

'Breath is needed
Warning heeded
Some will arrive
With sword and knife
My work is completed
'Til once more I'm needed'

Lindir: 'The answer to the riddle is certainly here in Imladris, but it may not be here for long!'
Boromir: 'What is this? A game? Ha, ha, I see, a riddle out of Gondor is it? Well, you have come to the right man, indeed!
'Nay, I fear I cannot give you my horn, even for a minute, because it is my trust and duty to bear it, but I will give you something that should suffice.
'This is the badge of my position, as the Steward's heir. As you can see it shows a horn above the White Tree of Gondor. I daresay that Elf-loremaster will be satisfied with this token.'
Collected Boromir's Badge

Objective 3

  • Bring Boromir's badge(found in Guest House in Rivendell) to Lindir to answer his riddle

Lindir is with Bilbo in The Hall of Fire at Rivendell.

Boromir has given you a token that provides the answer to Lindir's Gondorian riddle.

Boromir: 'Take my badge to your riddle-master. He should accept it in answer!'
Lindir: 'Excellent! You found the answer. I will see that it is returned to Boromir. Well-played. I trust the fact the item was not just laying on a shelf was no obstacle?'
