    Tom Bombadil
    The Great Barrow


'Come now, me hearties!

'Between those stones is what you look for, the Great Barrows of the Downs.


'Was it worth the trouble? Did you learn your lesson? Leave the Dead to sleep their dreamless sleep and walk yourself upon the green grass under the sun!'

"What be you a-thinking? Dead men should not be walking!

Vanish into sunlight, leave your barrows empty?

Come now, my merry friends, warm fire is awaiting..."


Tom Bombadil has brought you to the barrow named Othrongroth. A servant of the Nazgul, Andraste, said that the Lord of the Nazgul would be found here.
