Bestowal dialogue

'There's been rumour of a scarred, old wolf spotted away from the rest of the pack -- in fact, across the road from the wolf-den north of my farm. I don't know what might have happened, but I think it's fair to say that this old wolf must be their leader, exiled for some reason.

'Now, I think I've done something terribly foolish, <name>! My neighbour, Jolly Smallburrow, is a true gentlehobbit, and I suspect he's something of an admirer of mine. Unfortunately, I mentioned this wolf business to him, and he swore to take care of it!

'If you don't mind, would you please find Jolly before the wolf does? I'll feel terrible if something happens to him!'


Dora Brownlock thinks an admirer of hers has gone to try and kill the exiled leader of the wolves near Waymeet.

Objective 1

Jolly Smallburrow may be after the wolf that was seen across the road from the wolf-den, north of Dora Brownlock's farm.

Dora Brownlock is worried that her neighbour, Jolly Smallburrow, may be in trouble and has asked you to find him.

Dora: 'Jolly means well, but he's always trying to find ways to impress me. I hope you find him before that dreadful wolf does!'
Jolly: 'Dora was worried about me? Truly? Perhaps she does have feelings for me! Well, to tell you the truth, I was a little worried myself about what would happen once that wolf showed its muzzle around here.
'I felt sure my bucket of boar meat would lure the beast out of hiding, too. Ah, well. Maybe I didn't get smelly-enough boar meat...
'I'll clean this up, and we can go talk Dora together....'
Jolly Smallburrow says, "Oh well, I suppose I should clean up this bait."
Jolly Smallburrow says, "Gracious me, what do I do with it?"
Jolly Smallburrow says, "It smells something awful!"
Jolly Smallburrow says, "Oh no!"
Jolly Smallburrow says, "Uh... nice wolf?"
Jolly Smallburrow says, "Help!"
Jolly Smallburrow says, "Hooray!"
Jolly Smallburrow says, "Thank you, friend! Dora is sure to court me now this beast is dealt with!"

Objective 2

Dora Brownlock is at the centre of Waymeet.

Dora will be pleased to know that you have rescued Jolly Smallburrow and defeated the scarred leader of the wolves that have been harassing her farm and town.

Dora: 'You rescued Jolly, <name>, and thank goddness! I knew there wouldn't be an old wolf that could do you in, though I'm sure the same can't be said for poor, well-meaning Mr. Smallburrow.
'I have not yet decided whether to take him up on his dinner invitation. Yes, he ran straight here to ask before you even returned!'
