|Walkthrough & Notes|
'It's my fault, I guess, but when you killed those Orcs in my fields, the rest of their ilk got pretty stirred up. I think they're getting ready to raid my herd, grazing to the south of here.
'I'd like you to go down there and help my man Alwin defend the herd from those Orcs. Alwin's a fair hand with a bow, but he's no fighter. Them Orcs will finish my herd quick, and maybe worse. Make sure Alwin doesn't get hurt on my account!
'I think you'd best bring some friends with you. I don't think the Orcs will be caught unawares this time.'
