'Goodness, the author of this journal, Callum, has a dark past! It would seem the death of his ancestor to my ancestor at that great battle was a black mark on his family. They bore that mark for centuries.
'After a string of bad luck, which Callum blames on this mark, he decided to try and erase it by killing a descendant of the one who killed his ancestor. After years of tracking, he found the Shire...and me! The arrowhead that killed his ancestor was the one shot into my door.
'I think I know where you can find him. He describes where he has set his camp, and it sounds like it is west of here, on the far west side of the Frogmoors. You have to stop him!'
By reading the reassembled journal, Wilimar has learned it was written by a Man named Callum. Callum's ancestor was killed in a great battle by Wilimar's ancestor, and the family has borne this death as a black mark for centuries. Callum has decided to erase the mark by coming to the Shire and killing a descendant of that hobbit.
Callum's campsite is on the far west side of the Frogmoors, west of Budgeford.
In light of the revelations gleaned from Callum's journal, Wilimar Bolger has asked you to go to Callum's camp and stop him from carrying out his intended revenge.
Wilimar Bolger can be found near his hole on the north-west side of Budgeford.
When you arrived at Callum's campsite, you found him wounded. Racked with pain, he told of how he had fled from his hiding place near Wilimar's home, only to startle a wild boar, which gored him. He feels that he will soon succumb to his wounds and told you to let Wilimar know he has nothing more to fear.
