Bestowal Dialogue:
'Greetings! Do you have a moment? I've lived a long time here in Bree-land, but in my long life I've never taken the time to learn the land's history. Now, near the end of my days, I find I want to know what came before.

'I've decided to begin me learning with the Barrow-downs. I remember tromping over those hills as a lad and seeing some of those barrows had fallen into a ruin. I remember lots of broken stones, covered in rune-letters, littering the ground, especially near "The Dead Spire." I'd love a few of those rune-stones.

'Interested in bringing me, say, three of the stone fragments from near the Dead Spire? Perhaps we can both learn a bit of history.'

Newbold Leafcutter, an aged resident of Bree, is interested in learning the history of the Barrow-downs.

The Dead Spire lies due south of the northern entrance to the Barrow-downs. Newbold Leafcutter waits for you beyond the High Bridge at the southern end of the Upper Way in Bree.

Newbold Leafcutter wants you to gather rune-marked stone fragments from near the Dead Spire, then return to him in the Upper City of Bree.
