Something has gnawed all the meat from these fish-bones

Objective 2

  • Search the cottage on the western shore for sign of the creature

The cottage is on the western shore of the river.

You have found barren fishbones. The creature must surely be lurking nearby, so perhaps it has wandered into the cottage on the western shore.

The cottage's inhabitants appear to be unharmed but should be warned of danger

Objective 3

You have come across a small cottage in the south of Tâl Bruinen.

You should warn the inhabitants of the cottage of the danger that may be lurking near.

Afanen: 'You have come late to warn us, for the danger is known to us already.
'Last night, just after dark, we had snuffed out the candles, locked the door, and were just getting into bed, when I thought I heard something moving around little Whelan's room. Whelan is just a babe, so you can understand my worry; I thought a bird might have flown into his room through the window, which we always leave open a crack to the breeze can come in, and I did not want him to be frightened. But when I went into his room to check on him, I saw that it was not a bird at all, but a monster: a terrible, creeping thing hunched over on bony legs! It was moving towards Whelan's cradle and making a terrible noise in its throat.
'Its intent was clear -- it meant to harm my child! I let forth a cry such as you have never heard and leapt towards it; I do not know what I thought to do, but the thing sprang out of the window through which it had crawled, vanishing into the night.'
