Old Took's Favourite, The

General Quest

Adelard says his library is still haunted, and thinks giving the ghost a plate of ribs will make it leave. He wants you to talk to his wife, who is a fine cook.

1) Talk to Edilina Proudfoot, whom you'll find just east of the Great Smials (33.5s, 70.9w). She will make the ribs, but she is fresh out of boar meat.

2) Kill boars and loot 3 boar-ribs. There are some Hill Tuskers in the hills just to the east of Edilina's house, near the Great Willow.

3) Return to Edilina. She makes you the ribs.

4) Bring the ribs to Adelard.

5) After you speak with him and select "Finish Now", you get your coin reward, XP, and you will now be able to take the next quest, The Last of the Fireworks.
