Bestowal dialogue

'Ta-room. Yes, well, there are rather a lot of Orcs, are there not? I suppose you cannot drive them all away.

'Well then, we shall have to learn more about them and get to the root of why they are here...and what purpose Saruman has for them.

'They must have a leader...if you can find his dwelling perhaps you might learn more.'


Quickbeam feels that to get at the root of the Orc-problem, he will need to learn more about the Uruks' purposes...and those of Saruman.

Objective 1

The tent of the Uruk-commander lies somewhere in the Vale below Quickbeam's home.

You should search for orders in the tent of the Uruk-commander.

You examined the Uruks' orders, but you hear a sound behind you....

Objective 2

The Uruk-commander is at his tent.

You have been discovered by the Uruk-commander.

You defeated the Uruk-commander

Objective 3

Quickbeam is at his home upon the northeastern slopes above Nan Curunír.

You should bring the Uruks' orders to Quickbeam.

Quickbeam: 'Hoom-hom. Saruman intends to march south, and soon I think. My fellows are unlikely to decide on their purpose before then, for they are not so quick to judge as I.
'That is unfortunate, I think, for so many Orcs can cause a great deal of trouble, yet at least they will be out of our forests for a time.
'It also means that fewer will be here, near Isengard. Hoom, ta-rum, now that presents possibilities!'
