Active Quests:
The Stag Lord

Slay the Stag Lord and thus disrupt the organized bandit activity in the Greenbelt.

Completion: Restov must have confirmation of the Stag Lord’s defeat—if his body is not available as proof, his helm will do. Alternately, an agent of the swordlords will travel to Oleg’s Trading Post to personally confirm the banditry has been addressed.

Reward: 200 gp, plus a new charter to settle land and establish a kingdom in the Greenbelt

Find Falgrim

A Varisian mercenary who worked with Kesten Garess months ago, Falgrim Sneeg robbed Kesten’s group and fled into the Greenbelt to become a bandit. Kesten hopes to catch him alive and return him to Restov for punishment.

Completion: Capture Falgrim Sneeg, alive if possible.

Reward: Kesten can arrange a reward of three common +1 weapons of the capturer’s choice if Falgrim is delivered alive. If he’s delivered dead, Kesten can only promise one +1 weapon.

Oleg's Trophy

The way everyone talks about tatzlwyrms, one might think they’re everywhere. This isn’t the case; they’re actually quite rare. A tatzlwyrm head would be a great conversation piece at Oleg’s, so he has promised a reward for anyone who can deliver one.

Completion: Slay a tatzlwyrm and bring back its head intact.

Reward: Oleg promises his 5 lover’s knots for the tatzlwyrm head.

Wanted: Tuskgutter

Every Greenbelt hunter has a story about Tuskgutter, the nastiest boar in the Greenbelt. Whoever manages to kill the ill-tempered beast will earn a nice reward from the retired hunter Vekkel Benzen, who lost his leg to the monster pig a year ago.

Completion: Deliver Tuskgutter’s head to Oleg’s so Vekkel can spit in that dirty pig’s eye!

Reward: Vekkel has promised his composite longbow and three beacon shot arrows to whoever can kill Tuskgutter. He also promises to share the delicious head cheese he plans to make out of this trophy.
