'Look here, Name. The location of Nir-khelab, the Heart of Fire, is on this crude goblin-map! Do you not see it?'

Bosi laughs, clearly enjoying the attention.

'Let me put it this way, my friend: we know that the door to the Heart of Fire is sealed; indeed, you discovered the trick to opening it within the Word-hoard of Durin. But the goblins cannot know this trick -- the pages that held the secret were disturbed by only deep-claws; if the goblins had found those pages and understood their significance, they would have certainly taken them.

'We are not looking for a room on this map, Name; we are looking for a stretch of undisturbed wall behind which such a room could lie hidden, and I have found just such a spot! Let me know when you are ready, and together we will travel to this place!'



Bosi believes he has discovered the location of Nar-khelab, the forge where the mithril axe Zigilburk was made.
