Bestowal dialogue

'Perhaps I was hasty in my judgment. These cuts were carefuly taken from the carcass of a dead animal...our oxen which were slaughtered were gored, their meat ruined.

'Perhaps if you could help us discover what creature has been hunting our herds, we will consider trading with your friends. There is a legend which tells of a great black boar the likes of which has not been seen west of the Mountains in many long ages. It is said it may be the mate or descendant of the Boar of Everholt. Perhaps the Black Sow is responsible for this slaughter.

'Will you accept my offer? If so, look to our herd there to the north-east beneath the foothills. Almost nightly a beast or two has been slain.'


The Uch-lûth were greatly displeased by the gift of meat presented to them, for they suspect the Grey Company of slaughtering their herds.

Objective 1

  • Examine slaughtered oxen (0/3)

There may be dead oxen among the herds of the Uch-lûth at Uch Cadlus in the Windfells.

Alun has asked you to examine the dead oxen among the herds of the Uch-lûth to determine what may have slain them.

This ox does indeed appear to have been slain by a great boar

Objective 2

The Black Sow wanders the wilds of the Windfells.

Having determined that a great boar did indeed slay the oxen of the Uch-lûth, you should hunt down the Black Sow of the Windfells.

Alun: 'You believe it is indeed the Black Sow that hunts our herds? The beast must then be slain, for it is too dangerous to be permitted to wander these lands.'
Defeated the Black Sow of the Windfells

Objective 3

Alun is at Uch Cadlus in the Windfells of Enedwaith.

You should return to Alun with news of your success.

Alun: 'So the Black Sow was indeed more than just legend? Your deed then was heroic and worthy of song...even for a duvodiad, a stranger.'
