Bestowal dialogue

'I tell you, <name>, I have wondered whether I were going mad. I would track an Orc Captain climbing the nearby eastern hills, only to lose track of him. Then, as if by some sorcery, I would espy him far west, where I should surely have seen him pass.

'The riddle has evaded me until now. The maggot-holes must communicate in tunnels deep beneath these midden-heaps, and access fundaments beneath the Towers of the Teeth, as well. It is the only answer!

'Will you investigate? Find a way into Carchost and discover what pathways lie below.

Thurindol: 'If what you relate is true, why then an entire army hides in wait below the ground! We know full well that overwhelming odds stand locked behind the Morannon. But we shall not face those until the ordained time of battle, according to Lord Aragorn's plan.'
'What i this nether army poured forth to accost us before that time? What last bleam of hope might be lost if my Lord's plan faltered? No, it is clear. We must do somehing if we may... whatever we may.'
