Bestowal dialogue

'Hello, friend <name>. You have become a burglar of no small skill, but you and I both know that is not enough. An adequate burglar is simply not good enough if the task calls for an accomplished burglar, after all!

'It might not be too late. I have heard of just such an accomplished burglar, and it could be that he can give you the advice you need to become more than just adequate!

'Then again, he might not. But there's no harm in trying! Look for Atherol Took at Adso's Camp on the Great East Road, between Bree and Buckland. If you have it in you to become a truly accomplished burglar, Atherol Took might be able to tease it out of you!'


Burglars of great skill are not often chanced upon these days, especially if they do not wish to be found.

Objective 1

  • Talk to Atherol Took

Atherol Took, a very accomplished burglar, is at Adso's Camp, west of the town of Bree.

You have been told to speak with Atherol Took if you wish to become a better burglar.

Atherol Took: 'Greeting, Burglar <name>. I will forgive you for spoiling my imminent theft of that delicious roast cooking over there, since you might be able to help me with something.
'I have learned that a small group of brigands plan to sneak onto old Maggot's farm in the Marish to steal some of this prized mushrooms. The mushrooms are a real delicacy, and it would be a shame if the brigands deprived poor old Maggot of them.
'After all, if anyone is going to be sneaking mushrooms, it should be us! Am I right?'
Complete the Instance: A Thief in the Night quest.

Objective 2

Atherol Took is at Adso's Camp on the Great East Road, between Bree and Buckland.

Atherol is waiting to speak with you about your expedition to Farmer Maggot's farm.

Atherol Took: 'You did a good thing, <name>, and Farmer Maggot's delicious mushrooms have been spared from falling into the hands of the Blackwolds, who don't deserve them.
'We, however, certainly do deserve them, and the mushrooms you collected can be our payment from Farmer Maggot for the service we did him. I'm sure he'd be pleased with this arrangeent, so there's no need to speak with him about it. No need at all!
'And I think it's clear that you are a very effective burglar -- you certainly handled yourself well around those brigands! They'll fear your shadow from now on, if they have any sense, for you are quite skilled with both of your hands!'
