- One of the characters hears a rumor about a dire wolf rampaging through the villages surrounding
Seven Oaks, leaving destruction in its wake. No one has been able to trap it or track it to its lair.
- The party discovers a field with three dead goats, two dead cows, and one distraught farmer.
"It's the Duke's hellhound, it is! I tell you, when that beast's killed all the livestock, he'll
be after our children next!"

gold for the return of the Duke's beloved hound, Cuddles. Lost from Seven Oaks on Tuesday."
