Bestowal dialogue

'Ah, and how are you enjoying this fine banquet? Quite a bit, I hope, for I most certainly am!


Mithrandir pauses and looks to the ends of the table.

'I must confess that in my haste to take my seat here in Merethrond, I seem to have forgotten something in my guest-chamber. If it were of little import, I am certain it could wait until after the banquet. Unfortunately, it cannot.

'In my keeping, there are two tomes from the Houses of Lore. The first is a treatise on the line of Kings in Gondor, and the other is a chronicle of the Northern Kingdom.

'Will you fetch them for me?'


With the One Ring destroyed and the Enemy undone, the Free Peoples of Middle-earth gather to Minas Tirith for a grand banquet commemorating the wedding of King Aragorn II Elessar to Queen Arwen Undómiel. Among the many in attendance, there sits one of the Wise -- Mithrandir, the Wizard known beyond the lands of Gondor as Gandalf the White.
