'Oh... I am sorry... I cannot seem to clear my head...'
Ifing shakes his head as if to try and clear it of cobwebs. He squints at you blearily.
'Where... am I? I saw... something. And then...?'
Ifing tries to focus on your face. He finally manages it, and takes a deep breath.
'It was dark, and I could not see far into the night. But I saw... I saw a figure in the darkness. I thought it was one of my men, returned from a patrol in Eorlsmead, but then it... well, it rather hissed at me. I approached, and demanded that the stranger identify himself, but then everything went black. I fell down, and only now have I come back to my senses.
'The shape came from the north-west, I think, atop that rising slope. You can look for it there, if you like. I will... I will stay here. I am still not right, I fear.'
Ifing, one of the guards outside Stangard, had a curious experience and doesn't understand it.
Ifing saw a curious figure to the north-west, atop the rising slope in that direction, before he collapsed.
Ifing has asked you to search to the north-west for the hissing figure he saw, if you are not too frightened to do so.
A booted footprint north-west of Ifing's location, atop the rising slope, bears further investigation.
Ifing was accosted by a hissing figure, and this booted footprint north-west of his location may help you find it.
Ifing is waiting south-east of the booted footprint for you to report what you found.
