Bestowal dialogue

'I am glad you were passing through this part of the wood, <name>. While the mallorn fade here, Thinglad is still part of Lothlórien.

'I have heard and seen strange signs of trespassing of late. Will you investigate near here and see what there is to see? Make note of what you find; we can try to solve the riddle of who -- or what -- is invading the land so close to Caras Galadhon.'


Noriel is a sentinel of Thinglad, the southernmost reach of Lothlórien. She believes that trespassers have appeared on their lands of late and wishes for you to investigate.

Objective 1

  • Search the river's edge near Noriel (0/3)

Evidence of trespassers can likely be found at the water's edge in the northern part of the road in Thinglad, near where the sentinel Noriel is guarding the road.

You should search for evidence of trespassers while Noriel stands guard.

Noriel: 'How strange it is that Thinglad should suddenly be disturbed after so many years of quiet. Only Elves and beast roam these parts.'
Found an empty fisherman's net abandoned at the river's edge

Objective 2

  • Tell Noriel of the nets you found

Noriel, sentinel of Thinglad, stands on the road near the edge of Lothlórien.

You should tell Noriel of the nets you found.

Noriel: 'There have never been fishing-nets along this stretch of the Anduin as far as I can remember. What do we make of this? Who is trespassing on our land?
'If you have nay skill in tracking, you should search the woods for signs of these invaders.'

Objective 3

  • Search nearby for a sign of trespassers

Noriel has asked you to search the woods nearby for signs of trespassers.

You should search the forest floor for anything out of the ordinary.

Noriel: 'Look around for signs and see what there is to see. I would like to know who walks our lands without our leave.'
You find a shoe thrown from a horse

Objective 4

Noriel guards the forest edge along the border of Lothlórien.

You should bring the horseshoe to Noriel.

Noriel: 'A horseshoe! This must belong to one of the horses of Stangard, a Rohirrim settlement south of here. What great need drove these men to hunt and fish in Thinglad? They fear these woods, and anything to do with the Elves.'
