65 Recently, some of the slaves have escaped. Find out who helped them, for they could not have done such a feat alone. Food has also been disappearing from our stock for the colder seasons.

Unfortunately, they too were ambushed and our only informants, the sole survivor of the first attack and the slave, were killed.

You are to take 2 ships and only 2 ships to ask their business and, if need be, repel their attack with a navy battle.

81 A large group of about 200 poorly armed goodbeasts have been sighted a mere 2000 paces away from Fort Nightshade, already halfway done with a new settlement. Seeing as this is not the most impending crisis at the time, you have been given 20 of our warriors to take care of this settlement. Your mission is to use the element of suprise, and the goodbeasts' passive nature against them, to plunder and destroy the settlement. Beware of any hidden forces they may have, for even goodbeasts can't be so foolish as to settle near a vermin fortress. Completed

83 A small searat was seen staggering out of a cave, gasping that he had stumbled upon a huge group of adders. He then turned a nasty shade of blue and fell over, dead. This cave he talked about is not all that far from the fort, and judging from the number of punture marks on the corpse, even the whole of Nightshade might not be able to overwhelm this foe. Summer is coming fast, and the serpents will soon awaken from hibernation, and they will be very hungry. Find a way the kill the adders without waking them up and meeting a gruesome, blue-tinted fate. Completed

You quickly go to Snowstar and report what you saw and heard. Now, every time a creature nears the ship, the goodbeasts fire arrows. Four have already died. Your mission is to get our ships back before the goodbeasts take off with them, if that is indeed their plan. Completed
86 Three nights ago a seer came to our doors. She sat outside wailing until Snowstar reluctantly let her in. Later that night, the seer began speaking again, claiming that all who live under Fleetpaws' rule will die if they don't leave. She continued to say this for hours. Whenever another beast came near, she just shouted louder. Some of the more superstitious beasts began to talk. Eventually, the seer was forced out of Nightshade, but some of the creatures had already begun planning their escapes. It didn't help that the seer continued to sit outside our doors, wailing of death and destruction. The bolder ones even tried to get the loyal creatures to leave with them, claiming that the seer is right and they'll all die if they stay. Your mission is to stop these creatures from deserting without killing any of our creatures. Completed
87 A ferret was patrolling the wall two nights ago when he claimed to have seen a ship on the water. This morning, the ship was nowhere two be seen.

Before our soldiers would draw their weapons, the otters claimed that they wanted to join, explaining that they had been outcast from their holt and wanted revenge. They were allowed to join, and two days later, creatures began to die. There is no evidence that the otters murdered them, or even evidence that they were murdered, but they seem to be likely suspects. When asked, they claim that they no nothing of the deaths. It appears that the creatures died naturally, but many were young and healthy just days before. Find out what killed the creatures, and if it was the otters, kill them. Completed
93 You have been challenged to a duel. A fencing hare wishes to fight you to the death. Creatures from Nightshade have fought this hare before, but none have lived to tell the tale.

Last night, a patrol spotted the otter and an even larger group of allies sneaking towards the slave compound. The patrol fired off a few arrows and scared them off, but this is not enough. They will return and try to free more slaves. Stop the otter and his pals and get our slaves back. Completed
