Bestowal dialogue

'Come here, <name> and listen well. My captain, a ranger they call Strider, must be notified of the threat posed by Skorgrím. A shame you can't stay to enjoy our victory.

'Travel far to the east, to a place that Men call Bree-town. There you should seek out Barliman Butterbur. He's the owner of a tavern called the Prancing Pony where Strider has lodged in the past. If Strider is there, Barliman can help you find him. If not, you can bed down for the night and you can continue your search in the morn.

'It's a long journey to Breeland, <name>. Do not tarry, for Skorgrim is on the march.'


Langlas asked you to journey to Bree-town and seek out his captain, a Ranger called Strider. A man named Barliman runs a tavern in Bree and may have more information about Strider's travels.

Objective 1

Find Barliman Butterbur in the Prancing Pony, a well-known tavern in Bree-town. He may know of Strider's current whereabouts or if he's even in Bree-land at this time.

Langlas: 'It's a long journey to Breeland, <name>. Do not tarry, for Skorgrím is on the march.'
Barliman Butterbur: 'Who was that you were looking for? Oh Strider, yes. Well, not that it's my business, but I wouldn't go near that Ranger out of the wild. He's a strange one, not that he can't tell a rousing tale when he's of a mind!
'Well, it's clear you've no mind to listen to me. Strider keeps to himself mostly. From the common room turn left down the hall and keep on until you can only go right. Follow straight down that hall until you're at the foot of the stairs. Strider is in the room to the right of the stairs.
'Now, I've got paying guests to attend to, and no time to be chatting, if you know what I mean. It's just that busy!'
