Bestowal Dialogue

'Follow Bilbo's trail into the Misty Mountains, my persistent friend. And stay alert as you go, for those paths are dangerous, especially in winter. It may be that Kúblagat is not the only spirit of the storm haunting those slopes!

'Good fortune go with you, and bring Bilbo unharmed back to us!'

'Bilbo may have left tracks behind as he journeyed north... unless the recent snows have buried them!'

 Twist: Surprise Attack


If Glóin is right, Bilbo Baggins may have ventured north into the Misty Mountains instead of returning to Rivendell.

Objective 1

  • Examine the tracks in the snow to the north

If Bilbo did come this way, some of his tracks may have survived being covered by the recent snows.

(Examine first set of tracks)

Objective 2

  • Defeat the goblins and journey north in the search of more tracks

More of Bilbo's tracks may lie to the north, hopefully not covered by the recent snows.

You hear voices on the wind. Goblin-voices!
The tracks lead north, near the flickering light of a campfire

Objective 3

  • Search the campsite to the north-east for sign of Bilbo

A small campfire to the north-east of the tracks my conceal some sign of Bilbo.

Scouting Goblin-skirmisher says, "The wargs'll get him, don't worry about that!"
There seems to be no sign of Bilbo at this camp. Did he travel further north?

Objective 4

  • Defeat the goblins and journey north in the search of more tracks

Perhaps Bilbo evaded the goblins at the campfire and journeyed further north. You should search for more tracks in the wide-open space at the top of the slope.

(Examine last set of tracks, in the vicinity of 2 wargs)
The trail leads directly toward another goblin encampment! What was Bilbo thinking?

Objective 5

  • Investigate the goblin-camp to the north-east

A goblin-camp to the north-east lies directly in the path of the last tracks you found. What was Bilbo thinking?

(Approaching encampment)

This camp is full of slain goblins and wargs. What happened here?

Objective 6

  • Talk to the dying goblin in the camp of the slain

A dying goblin lies among the slain. Did he see Bilbo?

Dying goblin: 'You... you're looking for that halfling... aren't you?'
The goblin coughs, spluttering and choking on his own blood.
'You're too late! My wargs found 'im... by rights he should belong to me... but look around! Sorrog and Bauglám squabbled over the spoils... claimed the halfling for... themselves...'
He closes his eyes, near to death. You demand that he tell you where Bilbo was taken, and before he dies he mumbles a single word.
'No...' he mutters, and dies laughing.


Celeblír says, "Bilbo has been captured by goblins? This is worse than I feared!"

Celeblír: 'Dead goblins and wargs, but no sign of Bilbo? We need to find him, and quickly!'
