'Mayor Whitfoot set aside some money to refurbish the Town Hole in Michel Delving, but it seems the carpenters haven't received it, and they won't work unless they are paid. One of the Mayor's other assistants, Griffo Boffin, was supposed to make sure the carpenters received the money. He hasn't shown up for work, though, and I'm worried that something has happened to him.

'He lives up in Needlehole, far to the north beyond the Rushock Bog. Please visit Griffo, make sure he's all right, and then return here with the missing money. Griffo lives near the centre of Needlehole. The best way to get there is to head east to Waymeet, then follow the road north and west through the Rushock Bog until you reach Needlehole.

'I would do it myself, but I'm responsiible for making sure the Mayor's image remains untrasnished, and... well, with Mayor Whitfoot, that's a job that takes more hours than there are in a day!'


Money that had been set aside to refurbish the Town Hole in Michel Delving has gone missing, presumably stolen.


Objective 1
Talk to Griffo Boffin

Griffo Boffin may be found at his home near the centre of Needlehole, to the north of Michel Delving. The easiest road to Needlehole runs north from Waymeet, the crossroads east of Michel Delving.

Mayor Whitfoot's assistant has asked you to investigate the disappearance of the money that was set aside for refurbishing the Town Hole in Michel Delving.

'I know what you are thinking -- that I stole the money -- but I didn't! I was taking the money on a short cut across the bog to Overhill where the carpenters are working today, and these ragged-looking dwarves came running down at me from the north!

'They had axes and looked like they meant to use them, so I don't mind saying I ran as fast as I could back to town. But I dropped the bag with the money along the way and turned my ankle, too. I was just trying to come up with some way to tell the Mayor the bad news when you showed up.

'I think those dwarves came out of the Rushock Bog east of here, about half way to Overhill. I expect the bag is in their camp -- you'll know it by the large wooden bulwarks that protect it, If you can recover the bag of money, please bring it back to Assistant Fallohide with my apologies.'

Collect the money bag

The dwarves came out of Rushock Bog to the east, between Needlehole and Overhill. Their camp is somewhere nearby, behind tall wooden bulwarks.

You spoke with Griffo Boffin about the missing money, as Assistant Fallohide requested, and discovered that ruffian dwarves may have stolen it. Griffo asked that you seek out the dwarves' camp, retrieve the money bag, and bring it to Assistant Fallohide in Michel Delving.

Objective 3
Bring the money bag to Assistant Fallohide

You found the missing money, so now it should be delivered to Assistant Fallohide in Michel Delving.


The location of the dwarven fort is straight north of the 'o' in 'Rushock' on the map. It's a small cove, and the entrance is pretty distinctive. The money bag is on the ground right inside of the gate, next to a campfire.
