Bestowal dialogue

'If we don't do something, the Blackwold brigands will keep stealing my pipe-weed, <name>! They sneak into my field under cover of darkness and take as many plants as they can carry, but if you can catch them in the act you might be able to put some fear into them!

'My pipe-weed field is on the hill above Eldo Swatmidge's home, east of Staddle, right near the western edge of the Midgewater Marshes. You ought to be able to handle them by yourself.

'The thieves only try to steal from me day and night, so you'll want to keep watch for them under cover of darkness. And if you see their leader, take care of him as well.'

Background

Himloc Grouse is certain the Blackwold brigands that have been stealing his crop of pipe-weed will not give up simply because you recovered some of it.

Objective 1

Himloc Grouse's pipe-weed field is on the hill above Eldo Swatmidge's home, east of Staddle.

Himloc is sure the Blackwold brigands will keep stealing from his pipe-weed crop unless you can defeat them as they try. Himloc advised you to bring some friends with you and told you the thieves only come out at night.

Himloc Grouse: 'You need to stop them! My field is east of Staddle, on the hill above Eldo Swatmidge's home.'
Defeated Vance Waithman

Objective 2

Himloc Grouse is in the town square of Staddle.

Himloc will be pleased to hear that you have prevented the Blackwolds from stealing more of his pipe-weed.

Himloc Grouse: 'You put a stop to those Blackwolds, <name>? I'm glad to hear it!
'I think the brigands will get the message to stay away from my pipe-weed from now on, thanks to you! Here, take these coins!'
