Bestowal Dialogue


You have entered the Rhudauran Lost Temple in an attempt to cleanse the evil from the corrupted cup that came to you out of Mordor.

Objective 1

  • Explore the Lost Temple and find a way into the innermost chamber

There must be some way to get into the innermost chamber of the Lost Temple, where, Elrond believes, the corrupted cup might be redeemed.

The door is sealed. There must be some other way into the inner chamber.
RESTING PLACE "This was once the resting place for a forgotten noble."
Examining ...
An enterprising soul has already looted this coffin
Your mighty blow defeated the Temple-wight.
BRAZIER "Who keeps the braziers of this place lit? It is a question that you are not sure you want answered."
Examining ...
Sadly, the brazier contains nothing of value
Your mighty blow defeated the Inquisitive Rat.
INTRIGUING CHEST "What might lie within? The question intrigues you."
Examining ...
The coffer contains only dust. What a waste!
Your mighty blow defeated the Temple-wight.
Someone gained access to the inner chamber, and she left the portcullis open!
Fithákh says, "At last we will begin the work anew!"
"The time is ripe for the ascendancy of the Corcur!"
"Now to wait."
Fithákh says, "Hail, friend of the Corcur! You are... not what I expected."

Objective 2

Fithákh, a cultist of the Corcur, has gained entrance to the innermost chamber of the Lost Temple. She seems to be expecting someone.

Fithákh: 'There you are! I must confess, you are not what I expected, but the Corcur need every ally they can get if we are to recover from such defeats as we have suffered. Do you have the artefact?'
Unsure what she might be expecting, you withdraw the corrupted cup from your pack and show it to her. She gasps.
'A cup of sacrifice! I did not dare to dream I would ever see one in the flesh! I was told you had one of Ferndúr's totems, but I never expected this! Set it on the tomb. It will serve as an altar, and perhaps I can find a beast with blood to serve. It has been so long since these walls have seen a proper sacrifice, and that is worth far more to me than a gaunt-lord's totem!'
The cultist has mistaken you for a friend

Objective 3

  • Set the corrupted cup on the central tomb

Fithákh asked you to set the cup on the tomb in the middle of the inner chamber, saying that it will serve as an altar for a sacrifice.

SITE OF SACRIFICE "This altar has borne witness to many vile ceremonies carried out by priests of Rhudaur."
Bringing cup near altar ...
You feel light-headed. Suddenly, a cool breeze rushes through the chamber!
Fithákh says, "What did you do?"

Objective 4

  • Either leave the inner chamber or put an end to Fithákh's villainy

You have done what you set out to do, and now you can either leave the chamber with haste or put an end to Fithákh's villainy.

Fithákh: 'You have betrayed the Corcur! You are not who you claimed to be!
'I don't know what you did, but you have spoiled a priceless artifact of Rhudaur; it can no longer be used in sacrifice. You have ruined it forever! For that you will die, betrayer!'
  • Defend yourself from Fithákh's attack
Fithákh says, "Betrayer!"
Your mighty blow defeated Fithákh.
Fithákh falls. She will not see the Corcur rise, after all
