QUEST: Vengeance from the Grave Vengeance from the Grave

While exploring the Valewood wilderness, I happened upon a small cave where a great bear lived.

In that cave, I discovered a half eaten corpse and a spirit that, through some work of magic, revealed to me the final moments of a man's life.

Confront Nonton.

In the Valewood, I happened upon a curious hunter who told me his friend had been killed by a large bear in the area. After exploring the area, I found the cave, the bear, and Perly's remains. I experienced a vision of Perly's last moments, which revealed a far more sordid truth: His friend, Nonton, hamstrung him as he attempted to escape the bear. What reasons Nonton had for this are unclear. Perhaps I will find more answers by confronting the man himself. Nonton lives in the nearby town of Gilded Vale.
