For various reasons the strange paths of fate have brought each of you to the small town of Belric. Located on the western edges of the Arthfell Forest of Andoran, Belric is a quiet town whose economic fate rises and falls with need and price for lumber.
As such, it's not all that much of a town and with the current market price of wood the loggers and assorted crafts work at a steady, determined, unrushed pace that gives off an air of almost indifference.
Sadly for adventurers that means that there isn't much in the way of employ currently, and, out of slight desperation and waning funds, each of you has responded to a posting from a small farm collective on the eastern edge of town. The reward of 10GP a wolf pelt does not sound like much, but it's better than being hungry!
You stand assembled in front of a large barn filled with hay next to a smaller sized pen that looks like it could hold 30-50 head of sheep. Outside of the brutally slain corpses of 2 such beasts, the pen is currently empty and the eastern section of the fencing has been broken into pieces.
The lead farmer, a weathered old hand, that has seen more than his fair share of seasons in the field speaks-Thank you all for coming. We have suffered the depredations from the wolves of the forest from time to time and accept their occasional attacks as part of the price we pay for living so close to the woods. However, never in all my years have I seen wolves break down a fence and make off with an entire herd of sheep.
Any wolves that can pull a caper like this off are going to be more than the most stout farmer is want to deal with. That's where you all come in.
We need you to track down the four-legged villains that did this and eliminate them as a future threat. In addition, any help you could give us in rescuing and returning some of our lost sheep would be much appreciated.
Feel free to look around the pen, but the tracks leading back to the woods are fairly clear. If you have any questions, well I'm here to answer them.
