Bestowal dialogue

'We have been working quite hard on this building for some time now, and it's thirsty work, but it seems that our water supply is running low.

'One of my hunters came across a spring in the northern parts of the Old Forest where the water is particularly sweet and refreshing. A strange thing to find in such a wretched, gloomy wood. Go west into the Old Forest and stay in the north woods. The spring is a beautiful place...hard to miss in that dismal forest.

'I would appreciate it if you could fetch that water for me as soon as possible. I would hate to run out before you return. The Forest is getting dangerous, I hear, so you'll want to be careful.'


Graham Larkspur is one of Adso's workers. He and his companions are running out of water and need help replenishing their supply.

Objective 1

The entrance to the Old Forest is to the south of Adso's camp. The spring lies westward within the Forest.

Adso Haybank has asked you to fetch water from the spring his hunters found. He warned you to take friends to protect you from the dangers of the Old Forest.

Graham Larkspur: 'Have you brought me that water yet? We are running very short, and this is thirsty work. Please hurry along!'
There is a strange, beautiful woman standing near the spring

Objective 2

Upon finding the spring that Graham larkspur sent you, you noticed a beautiful but strange-looking woman standing underneath the oak tree in the western bank of the river. Perhaps she possesses the means for you to take water back to Adso's camp.

Goldberry: 'You have come a long way for water and into danger you do not know. It is true the water of my pool is the sweetest, and will gladly share, but the Forest is wild and untame, unfriendly to those who do not belong.
'Take this bucket and draw from my pool. Unless your friends drink too greedily, this will last far longer than water from the wells of Bree.
'Be wary as you journey back to the Road, lest the Forest trap you. My Tom is the Master, but he is about his business and may not come to save you. Fare you well.'

Objective 3

  • Pick up the bucket

The entrance of the Old Forest lies to the east, and Adso's camp is north from there.

Adso sent you into the Old Forest to fetch water, but empty-handed. Goldberry has given you a bucket in which to carry water back to Adso's camp and has granted you leave to draw from her pool, but warns that the Forest is dangerous.

Goldberry: 'You should take that water to your friends, but be wary. The Forest may try to hinder you.'

Objective 4

Graham Larkspur wishes to speak with you again.

You have brought the water back to Graham Larkspur
Graham Larkspur says, "Thank you for this water. It is very much needed!"
Graham Larkspur: 'Thank you, <name>! You have saved us a good deal of time and trouble. I'll not waste more of your time with this. If we need more, I will send my hunters out to the spring.
'Take this as payment for your efforts. I must get back to work.'
