"You'll find the rangers at the mustering cave on the other side of the marshes," Tanglerush tells me once I manage to track her down.
"And the rangers hang out there?"
She nods, "I'd deliver the message myself but I'm on duty."
"And clearly standing in the town square where you have four guards to watch over six people is more important than helping out with an ancient evil that threatens everyone."
"Pay's the same for me either way," she says with a shrug. "The marshes are yonder west."
"Marshes?" I say uneasily. "Are they dangerous?"
"Not really. Mostly knee high. Watch out for spiders, though."
Ugh. I'm not crazy about more spiders, but off we go. Let's head through the marsh.
Damn it, woman. You should have specified that it was knee-high TO A HUMAN.
As promised, there is a cave on the edge of the marsh. On the opposite edge of the marsh.
Inside, we find a familiar scene.
