|Walkthrough & Notes|
'You cannot fathom just how wrong I have been. I have trusted Calder Cob and heeded his advice for a long time... even after my own son tried to warn me of his duplicity.
'My son, Jon, is a worthy hunter, but he has not set foot in this town for over three years. He will never forgive me for the things I said to him.
'O, what a fool I am! I told him he was not welcome in Archet until he stopped behaving like a jealous child. Now he and his hunters are our only hope. But what can I do? He does not deserve to be dragged deeper into my folly. Nay, Archet must withstand this storm without help....'
Captain Brackenbrook, in his loyalty to Calder Cob, allowed his own son to become estranged from him after his son and Calder Cob had a falling out. The Captain took Calder Cob's side, and his son has not set foot in Archet since.
Strider has not yet left Archet, but he is anxious to leave so that he can pursue his true charge.
Strider is a wise Ranger who has seen many evil things come to pass; you should ask him what to do.
Jon Brackenbrook, the exiled son of the Captain, can be found in the Hunter's Lodge to the east of Archet.
You should appeal to Jon Brackenbrook and his hunters to come to the aid of the besieged town.
