Speak with Taplim Eningold in Three Rivers.
Saara Kalem says, "Greetings, friend. I am going to offer you a choice. You may hear my words and choose to act, or you may dismiss them. I will tell you that a shadow lurks over the people of Three Rivers, of which there are scantly aware."
"Your actions can turn fortune in their favor, if you choose to bear the responsibility. If you wish, go to Three Rivers and speak with Taplim Eningold. Although he does not know it, he will help you take your first steps on this journey. Light be with you."
With a wave of his hand, Taplim Eningold says, "Sorry, traveler. Unless you have pressing business, I have things to tend to here."
"Taplim Eningold says, "Ah, Saara sent you? Well, if indeed you can help, I would appreciate it. But, to be honest, I'm not the one who needs your help the most. See, I have lost some of my livestock, including all the family cows. They have simply disappeared."
"The townsfolk are blaming the bugbears, but I'm not so sure. Stealth isn't usually their tactice of choice. To make matters worse, we aren't the only ones this has happened to; it's becoming quite a problem."
This is the start of a series of quests involving the Tremean Farm.
