Bestowal dialogue

'Those were Men of Mordor, then? But look: a raft approaches from across the water. Can you see the occupant? He is dressed as those men were, and by his bearing, I guess he is their leader.

'I wonder what he might tell us of this dark plot we have found here, if we brave standing before him.'


Thorlind has spotted a raft bearing a man who might be the leader of this strange plot, approaching Esgaroth.

Objective 4

You should talk to Thorlind, who can be found just outside of Esgaroth-of-old.

Thorlind: You tell Thorlind of Burudâur's words and all you saw. He ponders deeply.
'I see. It sounds as if there is some other scheme afoot, somewhere in Lake-town. There we have another piece of the puzzle, and yet I still cannot guess at the whole! Will you go to Lake-town and uncover what you may? I must report back to Felegoth without delay, and your swift action might prevent whatever harm is planned.'

Objective 5

You should travel to Lake-town, north of Esgaroth-of-old.

Now, is there any talk here of Smaug's bones?
