Description

The peaceful afternoon was disturbed by cries of distress when a pack of wolves happened upon a local shepherdess while she tended her flock. In moments her beloved sheep were scattered to the winds by the clever predators.

Her concerned father beseeches you to help gather back what is left of the lost sheep to ease his heartbroken daughter.

A handful of your scouts could accomplish this without much trouble, so will you lend their skills to this cause?

Completed Quest

Diplomatic Report

Your scouts report back that they have found a number of sheep, although you did lose one scout--finding only his horse wandering alone over the pastureland.

There was evidence of an abandoned overnight camp nearby.

1 Unit did not return from this mission.

Quest Completion

As the sun sets, your scouts assemble back at the Shepherdess' farm with a full third of the lost sheep.

Their findings are troubling, however, with signs of someone having been camped in the area recently. Additionally, the number of scouts who made it back safely is definitely one less than you sent.

On further investigation, his horse was found wandering about unattended. Could it be just a coincidence?.

Failed Quest

Your scouts arrive back at town looking rather shame-faced and recount the story to you of how they returned empty-handed to the Shepherdess.

Not only that, but one of their number failed to return.

Description

After looking at all the evidence, your lead scout decides it would be advisable to take another look out there.

He suspects this to be foul-play on the part of Orcs and requests that you allow him to form a large hunting party to chase off these Orcish interlopers and avenge the deaths of his fallen scouts.

The veteran scouts volunteer almost immediately to form up this party and the mood is grim in the consulate as they await your word.

Note:You will need to send a sufficient quantity of advanced scouts to complete this quest.

Diplomatic Report

Your scouts report back that they found the tracks of half a dozen Wolf-riders and are in pursuit.

4 Units did not return from this mission.

Quest Completion

Your scouts combed the surrounding countryside and picked up the trail of what looks like a half a dozen Orcish wolf-riders.

With some cunning formations and the sheer dominance of numbers, the band of Orcs were chased clear of the area.

Their most recent camp was discovered soon after--no sign of your missing scouts or the sheep--but a pile of stolen loot is some consolation.

After splitting it with the Shepherdess and her family, there is still plenty (500 Gold) to bring home.

Failed Quest

Despite rigorous training and all their best efforts, the cunning of the orcs outmatched your scouts and many were slain in a series of ambushes and under the weight of numbers.

The youngest of the group, a newly promoted member of your scouting elite croaks out the telling. He winces as he recalls the ferocious howls of the wolves that the Orcs rode in pursuit, and his last words are of a sizeable cache of looted treasure.
