"I wish I could be more hospitable, but I'm a bit distracted. It seems I'm having a bear problem and I just don't know what to do."
- Bears "I've had attacks on my small flock of sheep lately. I was hoping that building a fence would solve the problem, but it hasn't helped at all. Then, one day when I was just about to step outside, I saw the culprits. A group of West Weald Bears was dragging away a sheep carcass. There's no way I can fight those ferocious beasts off on my own. If you could thin the population a bit, they would probably leave the area. I'll tell you what. Kill six of the things, bring me their fangs as proof, and I'll reward you well. Please, you're my only hope."
"Damn bears... going to run me out of Shardrock at this rate."
(After collecting the bear fangs)
"I feel much better now that you're here."
"I don't know where those bears came from, or why they picked my place to attack, but you must drive them away."
- Bears "I can't believe it. You actually did it! Well, I hope this will eventually drive them away. There may be a few stragglers, but I think this should do it. Now, how about that reward I promised?"
"Come back and visit me anytime!"
