'Now then, Bree is a fairly large town, and there are many places to visit and people to meet. I would like to help you with this and have asked many of the townsfolk to bid you good welcome when you speak with them. This town needs as many allies as it can find in these dark times.

'Your first step will be to the north, just beyond the Trader's Gate to the Three-farrow Crafting Hall. Enter the building and speak with Bonny Thatcher.'

Bonny Thatcher told you to speak with Second-watcher Heathstraw at the Boar Fountain in the Market Square.

Second-watcher Heathstraw: 'Well, well! It is good to see you again. I assume that you are on your tour of Bree and looking for some information about the town. Well, I am not the historian that certain folks are, but I do know a bit about the town and the reason that the boar plays such a big part in the decoration of the town.
'When Bree was settled, the area was prime hunting-ground for wild boar. The beasts served as the primary source of meat for the first settlers and have become something of a symbol of tenacity. The Boar Fountain was built to honour the first folk who settled Bree and used the wild boars surrounding the township as provender.

'I am Barliman Butterbur, and this is the Prancing Pony, finest inn in all of Bree-land. You can feel free to drink here and stay here, if You've the coin. Now I'm forgetting something…it's like that, so busy and all. Oh yes! I am to send you on your next stop upon you tour of Bree.

Harry Goatleaf: 'What do you want? Tenderlarch is a fool, thinking that any of us want to take our time to speak with people who'll be in Bree causing no end of trouble. He should focus on affairs that he can truly handle.

Harry Goatleaf told you to speak with Watchman Cardoon.

'Most folks pay us no nevermind and don't hear us asking about the sound from the alleys at night: ghosts prowling about down by the South-gate and the terror that grips the lot of us.

'The difference between the two is subtle, but the Watch has more power to also roam the countryside to protect the many farms of Bree. Recent weeks and months has seen an increase in brigand activity, and the Watch is terribly strained. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

'With all the claims of ghosts near the South-gate, brigands running folks out of Beggar's Alley, and the flow of refugees from the South, Bree is bustling…and not in all ways good. The Southerners are a bit of trouble that has me most concerned. More so than ghost-stories from the South-gate; those stories have been about for years.
'I hope that you have arrived here as a boon of hope, <name>. Again, I welcome you to our fair town.'
