Bringing quote to this page:

Quote:
Perhaps a shadow of fog and trees and deep water, and something that is not available, for you are still afraid. I'm not afraid of anything!

Here we go, as per the rules I need to identify that it is from UT

Quote:
Guardstone is gone-I think it's an orc's job. What do you say to it?

That is Barach, a forester of the Folk of Haleth, speaking to a Drûg* named Aghan, well-known as a leech, with whom Barach had great friendship:

"The watch-stone has gone -- Orc-work, I guess. What have you to say to that?"

This was after Aghan had left a watchstone to protect Barach's family when Aghan had to go care for his brother.

There is a wonderful painting in the new illustrated edition of UT by John Howe of a Drûg standing next to a watchstone that I believe is likely Aghan and his handiwork.

* Note that this is one term that is not in the word replacement list, since obviously we don't want it to replace the word "drug" any time that it appears.

And the watch-stone was found some way off, with its legs burnt off and an orc dead under it. It's one of my favorite stories from UT.

Your turn (And may I add how much I appreciate you giving the context and not just the quote).

I love that story (and I'll have you know that despite getting the new edition recently, I have not re-read that section. But it is branded on my psyche.)

Since the new edition is so beautiful, let's stick with Unfinished Tales.

I won't order you. But my people are on my own orders. I will send them on my own advice.
