Bestowal dialogue

'Our quest for more knowledge of the stone and of Núrzum must wait.

'You must go to Byre Tor in Cyneberg's stead, for I worry for the people there. Their city is a bit wild, and the folk there are not friendly to strangers. They are savage even compared to us here.

'Be careful out there, <name>. The High Knolls are dangerous even in the best of times, and I could not bear to lose you too!'


Gárwig wants you to put aside your search for Saruman's vile stone, and look instead to the people of Byre Tor.
