Bestowal dialogue

'It seems we have an expert riddler here, my dear hobbit! Bilbo, perhaps you can offer up one of your own riddles for our friend to solve.'

Background

Bilbo has a riddle of his own for you to solve:

'A long beard I have of bristly hair,
But no chin or cheek on which to bear.
Many hands hold me, with ne'er a caress,
Yet I'm e'er the first to clean up a mess.

Objective 1

Bilbo is standing with Lindir in The Hall of Fire.

Bilbo has a riddle for you to solve.

Bilbo Baggins: 'I would like to offer one of my poems on Elven lore, but I dread Lindir's gentle laughter more than a goblin's sword! So I will follow his lead and make another homely riddle, one that I am sure you can solve by finding another item here in the Last Homely House. Here it is:
'A long beard I have of bristly hair,
But no chin or cheek on which to bear.
Many hands hold me, with ne'er a caress,
Yet I'm e'er the first to clean up a mess.

Objective 2

  • Find an item that solves Bilbo's riddle

The solution to Bilbo's riddle is somewhere in the Last Homely House in Rivendell. Bilbo is in the Last Homely House in Rivendell.

Bilbo is waiting for you to bring him the item that solves his riddle.

Bilbo Baggins: 'Ha, has this puzzle stumped you? Perhaps your quick answer to Lindir was just a fluke!'
Lindir: 'Now, now, my friend, it would not be fair for me to give the answer away.'
Found a besom-broom
  • Bring the broom to Bilbo Baggins at the Last Homely House

(found in scholars guild first floor in the Last Homely House)

Bilbo Baggins: 'And what could be more homely than a simple besom broom? Even Elves have to clean up from time to time, it seems!'
