Bestowal Dialogue

'Hoom! From the blighted branches you brought to us, I have divined much. There was once an ancient tree in the southern forest whom I was once well acquainted with, but after the destruction wrought upon the forest during the wars long ago, it became withdrawn and would speak with me no more...even though my own despair at the acts of Men was nearly as great.

'Now it seems that the Wood-trolls -- particularly this one called Heart-rot -- have whispered long to the Huorn in its slumber and re-awakened it under their thrall. Its heart is now black and twisted with their malice, and it will suffer no living thing of flesh in its domain. Hom! Ta-room! Were that all that had transpired, I would pay it less heed, for the Twisted Heart's folly is its own, but now its roots run deep and far, ever grasping and twisting the trees that they touch, and the Wood-trolls will follow in its wake. I cannot allow the Twisted Heart to warp the entire forest to its will. We must stand against it and fell both it and the vile troll that has corrupted it.

'Be careful, for the Twisted Heart's power has grown fell, and I fear it will be all we can do to face it in the place of its greatest strength, but we have no choice! Ta-rum! Hoom! Speak with me again when you are ready to leave.'

Background

Longbough believes that some evil power may be twisting the wood to dark ends.

Objective 1

Longbough is at the Eavespires, on the north-west shore of Lake Evendim.

Longbough asked you to accompany him against the Twisted Heart.

Longbough: 'Hom! The forest seethes with anger as the power of the Twisted Heart grows, and while I fear we have little time, haste will head only to disaster.
'Ta-rrom! Ta-rum! Are you fully prepared for what lies ahead? Be certain, for we face death should we falter.'

Objective 2

  • Talk to Longbough at the Eavespires

Longbough is at the Eavespires, on the north-west shore of Lake Evendim.

You should speak again with Longbough.

Longbough: 'Hoom! Hoom! It has been ever so long since my blood has run with such heat and fervour! That was well fought, Little One! Indeed while I have little love for axes and swords, I had forgotten the enjoyable haste of battle. Ta-room! Even now though, I fell the anger of the forest subsiding as the Twisted Heart's influence fades. Soon some measure of peace shall return here, I think.
'Ta-rum! My thanks to you, Little One, your aid was most welcome. Please forgive my rudeness when we first met'
