'This is an outrage, <name>! I tracked the white hart into Tâl Bruinen all the way from the Gladdalf, and for some other hunter to steal the kill, the glory, and the meat for himself is unacceptable!
'I recognize the fletching of these arrows, you see: they are the distinctive mark of Adwold, a rival of mine. A hunter of lesser skill, he and I often compete for the same kill, and many are the times he has cost me a great deal of glory. But this is the last time!
'Take these arrows of his and confront him with them. Demand that he repent for bringing down the white hart, when clearly my arrows would have finished the job, and command him to relinquish to me the meat from the kill. The last I heard of him, Adwold was staying at the camp of Barachen the Elf, north of here in the Trollshaws. Barachen usually has one of his scouts positioned along the road; you can ask her for guidance if you get lost. Adwold will regret interfering with my greatest triumph as a hunter to date!'
Wistan is furious that the white hart he tracked across the Trollshaws may have been killed and its meat taken by a rival of his.
Barachen is at his camp south of the road that runs through the Trollshaws, east of the Last Bridge.
Wistan has asked you to speak with Barachen to learn the whereabouts of Adwold.
According to Barachen, Adwold has probably reached the Forsaken Inn by now.
Wistan is furious that Adwold has taken the meat and the glory from the death of the white hart he tracked across the Trollshaws and has sent you to confront him with a number of demands. Adwold stopped at Barachen's camp, but has probably arrived at the Forsaken Inn by now.
The hunter Wistan is at Echad Candelleth, in Tâl Bruinen.
You have learned that Adwold did not take the meat of the white hart tracked by Wistan, but was interrupted by the arrival of some creature, the sight of which filled him with fear and caused him to renounce any further hunting in Tâl Bruinen. You should report his to Wistan.
