Our adventurers start off by needing work at the Dragon and Hound. They are all given the same quest because the proprietor thinks it is a quest that needs a group to complete (spiders, vermin, goblins… etc…) . After deciding whether or not they wish to travel together, they will go back to the bar to collect the reward. Upon completion, the group will be approached by an elderly looking woman in dark robes. She says that she is an oracle and that she has sensed a great evil in Fangwood Forest. She will explain that her son came to Cayton to destroy the evil that she sensed and has yet to return. She came here to find him, but finds herself incapable of traversing the forest on her own and needs the party to find her son and kill the evil in the forest.
