'These hill-beasts are growing more and more dangerous. We have heard that their leader is a matriarch of their kind, secretive and cunning, who in turn serves the drakes. If we can lure out this beast-mother and defeat her, the other hill-beasts may be cowed or routed.
'We know that these beasts greatly prize roasted crawler-flesh. I would ask you first to hunt crawlers in the area, bring their flesh back to me to be roasted, and then take the meat out to the hill-beast lairs where we may draw out this mother of the beasts.
'Beware though -- while the crawlers are no great threat, the matriarch may be a foe beyond the power of any lone warrior to overcome.'
The strange hill-beasts have become a serious problem of late. It seems that they are ruled by a secretive matriarch who serves the drakes. If she can be defeated, perhaps the threat of the hill-beasts will fade.
