'They all think that I am mad because I talk to a crow...but it truly talks, I tell you! I did not believe it myself at first, but we have spoken many times, and it speaks as well as you and I.

'Did you hear that? Just over....

'I heard it with my own two ears, but...I would indeed feel better if someone else you speak with it, as well. Would you speak with the mouse? Or was it an Orc? Oh, yes, the crow.'

  • Talk to the meddling child

The decision lies with you: speak with the child and let him go or speak with Bertred and bring the wrath of the mad Quartermaster down upon the child.

Bertred: 'It was a boy? I was talking with a boy and not a crow? I do not believe you! I will have to talk this over with my friend, the Orc-mouse, to see what he thinks.
'Or was it a crow?
'Thank you for naught, and a good day to you.'
