Quest Talk:A Bit of Brown
Here is the old Bestowal dialogue from Harigar Mudbottom:
- Another Outsider passing through? Well, usually I don't cotton much to Outsiders, but in this case an Outsider is exactly who I need. Now, what I'm about to tell you cannot be repeated to anyone!
- You see, I've made a bit of a name for myself as being an expert on ales, wines, and the like. And one night, I got to boasting and said there was no need for me to take up the Inn League Challenge, as I'd already drunk every type of spirit that could be found west of the Misty Mountains. Then someone asked if I had drunk a "Blagrove's Brown" from the Bird and Baby, and...and to my horror I realized I never had!
- Can you believe it? Me, living all my life in the Shire, and I had never drunk an ale found right in Michel Delving! What's worse is I lied, aye, I lied and said I had! Now I can't show my face down there and enjoy what might be the finest ale in all the Shire! I can't live like that! Could you fetch me a bit of that ale?'
