Start: Everard Holebourne
'I've lost my lucky sling-stone! I had just dropped a deer when suddenly a bear -- a huge, brown bear it was, too -- grabbed the kill and dragged it off! I don't care about the venison, but I need my lucky sling-stone! I can't hunt without it.
'Please, help me if you can and get back that sling-stone from the deer's carcass. The bear dragged it off into that big den to the north of here. He's probably on the slopes north of the Bolestones, feasting on the deer I killed.
'All my luck has gone away with that stone!'
