'Calder Cob has shown his true colours at last! I knew him to be evil-hearted, but my father is too trusting. He does not like to think ill of people. His blindness wounded me, but he is a good man.

'So, to answer your question: yes, I will come to Archet's aid, I and my fellows. I am a hunter and a skilled warrior, trained by my father and Captain, and I would rather die than sit idly by while foul brigands crash upon a decent peoples.

'Let us see what there is to see before the storm is upon us. While I gather my warriors and my weapons, you should sneak into the Blackwold's Roost and uncover their plan of attack for tonight.
