In your way to the Pirate Bay in search of some adventures you meet Maweran, a fisherman who asks you for some help. The man is worried about a friend of him, because he hasn't heard about him for a long time. He asks you to make sure his friend the forester is fine and also to give him some fish for his pantry.
Speak with Militia Captain Gabelte!
Oh yes good old Timotan, he didn’t need to thank me! Of course I was going to help him! I’m sure that by now you recognize that the situation in this area isn’t very safe. Most of the citizens from surrounding villages and farms have already moved to quieter areas. Those who stayed here founded a small militia to at least be able to put up a slightly organized fight against the Thraconians and the undead. No one expects any help to come from Baron DeMordrey anymore either. I think you could help us out with a few of our problems if you have the time for it. Speak with militia captain Gabelte. You’ll find him close by, at our militia’s guard post.
You decide to help the guy, as long as this looks like an easy and quick matter. So you start walking along Artamark's Gate road, towards south, where after a short walk you find the forester's cottage.
As soon as Timotan can see the bag of fish Maweran gave you, his eyes become wide open. He's so happy about listening to Maweran news, and also for the fish... there are difficult times here!
Maweran sent you? Thanks be the Gods! The world hasn't completely forgotten us! Maweran is truly a good person. He keeps watch on the bridge over the trout stream and warns travelers about the danger. My wife and I are hardly able to leave the house.
