Bestowal dialogue

'In the past, the Orcs that have attacked have been of the Tarkrîp tribe. The bloodlust of that tribe usually causes them to throw themselves heedlessly into the battle, without forethought.

'The Orcs that now move on Trestlebridge appear to be of the more powerful Ongbúrz tribe. These warriors are stronger and more skilled. The townsfolk will not be able to stop them. I would send a party of my men to aid them, but all my kin are dealing with matters in the east.

'You and I may reach them in time, however. You have done much already, but I would ask for your help in this battle. Gather what warriors you can and return to me. But make haste...Trestlebridge does not have much time.'

NOTE: This quest is meant for a fellowship. If you choose to undertake this quest solo you will receive an inspiration bonus, but the challenge will be great.


Upon returning from Trestlebridge with Nellie Boskin's refusal to join the Council, Halbarad informed you that a large force of Orcs was moving on Trestlebridge.

Objective 1

Travel with Halbarad to Trestlebridge and aid in its defence.

Halbarad told you that the Orcs moving on Trestlebridge are from the more powerful Ongbúrz tribe. The townsfolk will not be able to defend against them alone. Halbarad instructed you to gather allies and return to him.

Halbarad: 'Are you prepared for the battle ahead? It will be a difficult one, and we will need all the warriors you can gather.
'Are you ready to leave now?'

Objective 2

Nellie Boskins can be found in Trestlebridge.

At Halbarad's side, you helped defend Trestlebridge from the Orcs that sought to destroy it. At the conclusion of the battle, Nellie Boskins asked to speak with you.

Nellie Boskins: 'I must apologize to you, for I fear my behaviour towards you was nearly unforgiveable. I see now that the constant Orc attacks were nothing compared to what Angmar could bring to bear on this small town.
'You and the Ranger Halbarad have risked your lives to save my people. I am in your debt.'
