The second item is berries. The berries are free, plentiful, close at hand, and guarded by killer bears.
Sigh. I should have known I couldn't get through a day without having to kill a bear. At least this will be quick.
...unless I have to gather from six bushes, in which case this will turn into a long-term project.
The third item on my shopping list is the blackwort root. Surprisingly I don't have to fight bears to get it. I just have to hike to...
...Chetwood and go into a...
...wolf den and fight wolves.
Remember that I'm getting poison to feed to dogs. I'm poaching bears and wolves so that I can avoid fighting dogs.
I return to Cartwell and give him the supplies, "Is that it?"
He nods, "Yes. I should have your poison in a moment."
"You don't need me to go and quest for any other basic items? You don't need firewood from Mirkwood or a stirring-spoon from Sauron's kitchen?"
He looks down at me, "You are not like the other Hobbits I've met."
"Well, you're just like the humans I've met."
