Bestowal dialogue

'Brave and skilled are the men under Frithstan, but they are no match for the sheer numbers of the Orc-horde. I fear that it may already be too late to aid them, but I must know for certain.

'If you have the courage, I would ask you to press onward into the territory of the Mountain-orcs to search for signs of my companions. Look among the Orc-tents and supply-crates for their belongings or for other evidence of their presence.'

Speaking with Frithstan may reveal the fate of the missing Rohirrim.

Frithstan: 'An Orc you are not, and you are no who are you and what are you doing here? You say Penda sent you?
'Oh, thank you! I am Frithstan. My men and I were captured by the Orcs when we launched an assault against them.
'Look in the crate to my left and search for the Orc's key-ring.'

Frithstan: 'The keys! You have found them! If I don such shackles never again, it will be too soon.
'Thankful am I for the pride of these Orcs. They were quite ill-prepared for your attempted rescue. It is shameful to have been captured by such beasts, but I am truly grateful for my release.'
