Bestowal Dialogue

'Not many hobbits escape from Goblin-town even once, but with your help Bilbo might be able to boast that he has done it twice!'

 Twist: Shared Corruption


Bilbo Baggins has run afoul of the goblins of the Misty Mountains... again!


Having found Bilbo Baggins within the dungeons of Goblin-town, you must now return him safely to the surface!

Objective 1

Your rescue of Bilbo Baggins from Goblin-town will not be complete until you have returned him safely to the surface!

Let us hope you can bring Bilbo safely through Goblin-town without incident!
Bilbo Baggins: 'Let us hurry to the surface, <name>! I have seen more than enough of Goblin-town to last a lifetime, or even two!'

Objective 2

  • Protect Bilbo Baggins while he escapes from Goblin-town

Your rescue of Bilbo Baggins from Goblin-town will not be complete until you have returned him safely to the surface!

Bilbo Baggins says, "Up here, it's got to be!"
Bilbo Baggins says, "Hold on, <name>."
Bilbo Baggins says, "Okay, I think it's safe."
Bilbo Baggins says, "We're lucky the goblins don't seem to be home..."
Bilbo Baggins says, "I'd feel better if I still had Sting!"
Bilbo Baggins says, "No, Frodo has more use for Sting now than I have, poor lad!"
Bilbo Baggins says, "Ah!"

(Bilbo loots a corpse)

Bilbo Baggins says, "This will do. It's not Sting, but at least I shall not be helpless."
Bilbo Baggins says, "Let's go, <name>."
Bilbo Baggins says, "You should still do most of the fighting! None would mistake me for Thorin Oakenshield!"
Goblin-town Soldier says, "The prisoner is escaping!"
Goblin-town Soldier says, "Someone tell Bauglám his prisoner is getting away!"
Bilbo Baggins says, "'Well now, look at this, <name>."
Bilbo Baggins says, "When last I was here, I didn't get a good look at the place."
Bilbo Baggins says, "That's not surprising, of course."
Bilbo Baggins says, "It's hard to see anything when you're in the clutches of goblins!"
Bilbo Baggins says, "That would have been the end of my tale and Thorin's both, if not for Gandalf."
Bilbo Baggins says, "But this time Gandalf isn't near at hand."
Bilbo Baggins says, "Thanks for coming to find me <name>."
Bilbo Baggins says, "Ah, we had better keep moving."
Bilbo Baggins says, "Up, up! That's the way out of Goblin-town!"
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "Stop, prisoner! And you too, helpful <race>!"
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "I did not steal you away from Sorrog Crows-eye to let you go now!"
Bilbo Baggins says, "Don't you think we should talk things over?"
Bilbo Baggins says, "This is clearly just a misunderstanding..."
Bilbo Baggins says, "No! You spoke of treasure, and I mean to have it!"
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "Where are these sacks of gold?"
Bilbo Baggins says, "May I confer with my friend for a moment?"

Objective 3

  • Talk to Bilbo in Goblin-town

Bilbo has asked to speak to you before dealing again with Bauglám Fork-tongue.

Bilbo lowers his voice and speaks to you in little more than a whisper.
Bilbo Baggins: 'When I was walking in the mountains, I was captured by a party of goblins, and they started hauling me to their camp. We had gone no more than a hundred feet or so when a second patrol of the creatures came up, led by this fellow. Now, I wouldn't say I'm an expert on goblin-kind, but I have had enough run-ins with them to know that they love gold more than anything. So I had to think fast, and... well, I told them I had been an adventurer in my younger days, and I had hidden sacks of gold in the mountains.'
'The goblins fought among themselves for the right to my treasure, just as I thought they would! This fellow won the contest right quickly, before I could get away, and the next thing I knew I was locked in that cell here in Goblin-town! I couldn't tell them the truth, of course; that there were no sacks of gold. When I adventured with the dwarves I did end up with two small chests of silver and of gold, but that was a long time ago and they were never as large as the rumours around the Hill would put them!'
Bilbo slaps his hands together. 'I think I've got it!' he says. 'You'll get us out of this, <name>, trust me!'

Objective 4

  • Wait for Bilbo to try and talk his way out of it

Bilbo has asked to speak to you before dealing again with Bauglám Fork-tongue.

Bilbo Baggins says, "I have had an idea, my friend!"
Bilbo Baggins says, "You have already proven yourself to be a most effective fighter."
Bilbo Baggins says, "Did you not beat that other fellow and his finest warriors? What was his name?"
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "Sorrog Crows-eye? I would not boast about besting that weakling!"
Bilbo Baggins says, "What would you say to another context? A game to prove your mettle?"
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "I am listening."
Bilbo Baggins says, "Single combat! If you beat <name>, I will lead you to my treasure."
Bilbo Baggins says, "And if <name> beats you, we are permitted to leave."
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "Hmmmm. Single combat? One-on-one?"
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "I agree to this contest."

Objective 5

  • Talk to Bauglám Fork-tongue

Bauglám Fork-tongue seems strangely confident about facing you in single combat.

Bauglám Fork-tongue: 'Single combat seems fair to me. No one can intervene. This will be a test of strength, one-on-one, and everyone here agrees this is fair, yes?'
Bauglám Fork-tongue stares at you, his lip curled in a sneer.
'There is no backing out now. <race>. Are you prepared to fight?'

Objective 6

  • Defeat Bauglám Fork-tongue in single combat

Bauglám Fork-tongue seems especially pleased with himself.

Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "Hold your cave-claws, friend."
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "This is to be single combat, yes, one-on-one."
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "But I never agreed to be the one you will be fighting!"
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "Thukafak! Get over here!"

You are reminded, once again, that goblins cannot be trusted

Objective 7

Bauglám Fork-tongue has chosen the troll Thukafak to face you in single combat.

Bilbo Baggins says, "Oh my."
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "Kill the <race>, my pet!"
You have won the contest!

Objective 8

  • Remain alert for further trouble

You defeated Bauglám Fork-tongue's champion. Will he now agree to the terms of the contest?

Bilbo Baggins says, "It looks like we've won, Báuglam!"
Bilbo Baggins says, "Now you have to let us go."
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "Do I?"
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "What do you think, boys?"
Bilbo Baggins says, "Yes, what do these fellows think?"
Bilbo Baggins says, "Do you think they'll understand that you're going back on a bargain?"
Bilbo Baggins says, "And if you won't deal fairly with us, might you cheat them too?"
Bilbo Baggins says, "Maybe he offered to split my gold with you?"
Goblin-town Soldier says, "What's he saying, boss?"
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "Don't you worry about it."
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "You've made your point, rat!"
Bauglám Fork-tongue says, "Get out of here with your friend before I change my mind."
Bilbo Baggins says, "Smartly decided, Bauglám! Let's go, <name>!"


Bilbo Baggins: 'Let's get out of here before he changes his mind!'
