The Ancient Inscription

An ancient object in Bree-land. Examining it is part of the deed The History of the Dúnedain.


This inscription appears to have ben re-carved recently. It is legible, but written in an ancient dialect of Arnorian tongue you are unfamiliar with. It seems to be some kind of Oath, from what you can understand.


The runes you found seemed to be very old indeed, and in style of ancient Arnorian script that few would readily recognize in these times. While you made out only a little of it, the inscription is likely an oath of fealty taken by Dúnedain to their Lords.
The Men of those days put great store in ceremony and oaths, and believed that to break one would bring a terrible curse upon the oathbreaker.
Few Men put much store in ritual and ceremony these days - save for the Rangers of the North, who are romoured to have descended from those very Dúnedain who once ruled Arnor. Perhaps they are the ones who have protected the inscription from the wear of time?


The Ancient Inscription may be found in a corner of the Crumbled Court, just off of the road between Combe and Staddle. [30.2S, 49.1W]
