Bestowal dialogue

'I think I know what's going on. There are some sprawling old ruins just south-west of here. I think the goblins have occupied those ruins.

'I'd be sorry to have to send a message up to Thorin's Halls or off to Gondamon for help. I guess I'd feel like Vífill must have. They would laugh and leave it lie.

'I wonder if you and some friends, perhaps, could deal with these goblins? If you could raid their camp in those ruins and defeat their chieftain, I wouldn't have to ask for help from elsewhere. I'd gather some allies, though -- the camp is likely to be well-guarded.'


Grímkell thinks the goblins have occupied a large ruin, a former Dourhand city, to the south-west of Noglond.

Objective 1

The Blue-crag Chieftain is at the large goblin camp in ruins to the south-west of Noglond.

Embarrassed by his previous skepticism, Grímkell has asked you to raid the goblins in their camp and slay their chieftain. He suggested you take allies.

Grímkell: 'Search the goblin-camp in the ruins to the south-west for the Blue Crag Chieftain and put him out of our misery.'
Defeated the Blue-crag Chieftain

Objective 2

Grímkell is in Noglond, north-east of the goblin encampment.

You should return to Grímkell with news of your victory.

Grímkell: 'Ha! Good work. I'm sorry I ever doubted Vífill, but who would have known that goblins would actually dare to enter the Vale of Thráin?'
