Bestowal dialogue

'<name>, you have become a minstrel of such talent that you have surpassed whatever I might once have taught you. I thank you now for the privilege of aiding you then. It has been an honour, and I will sing of you that the people will know what greatness can come from even a humble beginning.

'There are few now from whom you might learn that which you do not know...Baillindiel, perhaps. She might wish to speak with you.

'I have heard that she is staying now at Celondim, the Elf-harbour in Ered Luin. Seek her out and speak with her, for I am sure she would enjoy meeting you.'


You inspire the Free Peoples with your songs of hope and your tales of heroism, a renowned minstrel of talent and bravery.

Objective 1

Baillindiel is at Celondim, the Elf-harbour in Ered Luin.

You have been told to speak with Baillindiel, a talented minstrel who may desire to speak with you.

'It is a pleasure to meet you, <name>. It is the minstrel's lot to bring hope and light to others, and all too often is left with none for herself. In friendship, then, we find our own peace.
'You are deserving of equipment that reflects the joy you bring to others, <name>. I can help you fashion such articles, but I must give you a warning: this road is not an easy one, and you may despair of ever seeing its end. I need not tell a minstrel that the joy at the end of a long road is all the sweeter for the hardship, though.
'Let me know if you are ready, and I will tell you what must be done. The tale of these items will be difficult and dangerous, but that is what will give them their strength.'
