Bestowal Dialogue

'Ah, I see it now. That hobbit-lass, Violet, probably went off to see those ruffians on her own. I never thought to warn her properly what might happen, I just figured she'd have the hobbit-sense to head back to Stock with the news so Mat Harfoot, and maybe the Bounders could do something about them.

'The camp of strangers -- brigands and thieves most likely -- is not far to the west of here. Ford the stream at the head of the waterfall.

'It's no good waiting for the Shirriffs to do something now. You'd better hurry out there and look around. I only hope she ain't been harmed!'


Farmer Maggot informed you that Violet Underhill, the missing member of Mat Harfoot's "Vigilance Committee", did stop by. He thinks she may have gone to investigate a camp of ruffians.

Objective 1

The ruffians' camp is west of Bamfurlong. You must ford a stream at the top of a waterfall to enter the camp, which is set on the heights at Narrowcleeve.

Farmer Maggot suggested you search the camp he told Violet about, just in case she went there alone.

Farmer Maggot: 'The more I think on it, the more sure I am that VIolet Underhill went to that brigand camp. Their camp is west of Bamfurlong -- ford a stream at the top of the waterfall and work your way up the slope to the heights of Narrowcleeve.'
Violet Underhill is held prisoner in a cart here

Objective 2

  • Free Violet Underhill from the cart

Violet Underhill is being held prisoner in a cart.

Violet Underhill, against Farmer Maggot's warning, went to confront a camp of ruffians by herself. Now it is up to you to rescue her.

Violet Underhill says, "Thanks for freeing me! Now, I'm getting out of here! Please help me escape!"
You have rescued Violet Underhill
Violet Underhill says, "Thanks! I think I can get back on my own now. Please tell Mat I'm all right!"

Objective 3

Mat Harfoot can be found in Stock, outside The Golden Perch Inn.

You should return to Stock and inform Mat Harfoot of Violet's release.

Farmer Maggot: 'That is such a relief, friend, I don't mind telling you. I should never have let her go off on her own like that. Good work!'
Mat Harfoot: 'Oh! I'm so happy Violet is safe. I never would have sent her down to the Marish if I thought she'd go off on her own like that to face those ruffians!
'Well, it's thanks to your bravery that she's been freed and with no harm to her. Please accept this small reward for your great deed!'
