What a petty decision. Cater to the NPC.

Whilst she is resting, you take the opportunity to pick some ripe berries from nearby bushes, which you share with Hakasan. Add 1 STAMINA point. Feeling better, Hakasan stands up, and you set off again. A few minutes later, you hear somebody in the distance call out, 'Bigleg! Bigleg! Where are you?'

See who is calling out?
Keep quiet and avoid whoever it is?

See who's making a fuss (and possibly handing us the next plot coupon).

See who it is.

Also...we really have a lot of random junk. Though I think it should be 2 lead balls, not one.

You walk towards where the sound of the voice is coming from and enter a small clearing where you see a short, stocky man with balding hair and a long bushy beard sitting on a log, sharpening his battleaxe. He is wearing a chain-mail shirt over his tunic, a cloak and big brown boots. By his side are a crossbow and an iron-rimmed wooden shield. He doesn't seem concerned by your sudden appearance. 'Friend or foe?' he asks in a booming voice.

Reply 'friend?'
Reply 'foe?'

The amount of filler in this book.

Be nice to the NPC.

He slaps his thigh and says, 'Jolly good,' in a booming voice. He stands up and walks over to you with a big beaming smile spread across his face, his hand outstretched to greet you. Whilst shaking your hand vigorously, he says, 'Good day, dear people. My name is Bignose, for obvious reasons, as you can see! I am the second cousin of Bigleg of Stonebridge. Sadly he went missing some months ago, and I have been searching for him ever since. He looks very much like myself only he doesn't have a big nose! You haven't seen him, have you?' You both shake your heads and tell him that you haven't seen his cousin. 'Ah, that's a shame. I know he's somewhere in the forest. He's searching for the war hammer stolen from Gillibran, our king. What brings you to Darkwood Forest?'

Reply that you are on your way to Yaztromo's Tower?
Reply that you are treasure hunters?

(Apparently Dick McBigThirdLeg didn't tell Bigleg's family about his fate, or maybe he just didn't bother telling second cousins.)

I'm bemused, because his illustration doesn't have a big nose, and neither does his description.

Tell him where we're going, I recall that the Stonebridgers and Yazzy were friends.

Sure, tell him where we're going.

But after this is done, could you post what happens if we claim to be a foe? I'm just curious.

(I'll do a Q&A session at the end of the LP, but the answer to your question is spoilered below.)
Click here to see the hidden message (It might contain spoilers)

The Dwarf's eyes light up at the mention of the name Yaztromo. 'The Grand Wizard is a very good friend of the Dwarfs of Stonebridge. Are you friends of the great man too?' Bignose asks enthusiastically. You reply that whilst you are not a friend of Yaztromo, you need to find him to warn him that he is in grave danger. 'Danger? What kind of danger?' Bignose asks anxiously. You look at Hakasan with your eyebrows raised, and she returns the look and shrugs.

Tell Bignose about the imminent return of Zanbar Bone?
Say that you are unable to share your news with him?

Oh, so this takes place before the PC of Book 3 found the hammer? If not, surely everyone in Stonebridge would already know what happened to Bigleg. I'm almost tempted to suspect him to be some doppelganger because of that. And because he doesn't really have a big nose in the picture so he's surely an imposter. >.>

But honesty, I guess.

Bignose's mouth drops open in disbelief as you recount Horace Wolff's tragic story. 'Oh my goodness, that is the most terrible news I've heard since the disappearance of Bigleg! I would like to come with you to Yaztromo's, but I have to find my cousin. The good news is that you are not far from the wizard's tower. Half an hour's walk this way,' he says, pointing over his shoulder with his thumb. 'If there is anything of mine that might be of use to you, please say. I would happily trade.' (Harry possesses a Rune Ring.)

You rub your chin whist thinking about what items you might need. Bignose looks at your hand and says, 'That ring on your middle finger - can I ask you where you got it from? It looks like the Rune Ring that belonged to my old friend Morri Silverheart, who lost it whilst hunting in Darkwood Forest. Sadly he was later killed by Hill Trolls on the Pagan Plains. Is there anything I could offer you in exchange for it? It would give me great pleasure to return it to his widow.' Hakasan points at a silver pendant in the shape of a dragonfly hanging on a silver chain around Bignose's neck. 'What's that?' she asks. 'It's just a pendant. It's nothing special as far as I know,' Bignose replies.

Offer the Rune Ring in exchange for the pendant?
Tell Bignose that you don't want to trade the Rune Ring?

Bignose is delighted with the trade, and thanks you over and over again. He slaps you on the back, and tells you that he must be on his way. 'I need to find my second cousin before I go back to Stonebridge with the Rune Ring, so I'll say goodbye now. Cheerio!' The Dwarf walks past you, whistling a happy tune, and is soon out of sight. On closer inspection, you see the pendant has a maker's mark on the back, the initials JF. 'It must have been crafted by Jadan Fam,' Hakasan says excitedly. 'His dragonfly pendants are worth a fortune!'

Wear the pendant around your neck?
Put it in your pocket?

Wondering if the pendant has magic properties, you place the chain tentatively around your neck. You are slightly disappointed that you do not feel any sudden sensation or magical powers, but are also very relieved that nothing terrible happens to you.

Click here to see the hidden message (It might contain spoilers)

You push on through the forest, spurred on by the fact that you are nearing your destination. The trees thin out a little as you approach the southern edge of the forest, and suddenly you see the top of a huge stone tower poking out just above the treetops ahead. Hakasan whoops for joy, saying 'Yaztromo's Tower! We've found it!' You walk on as quickly as possible in the fading light, soon arriving at a clearing where the tall tower stands proudly, causing a formidable shadow to be cast across the forest floor. Built with the help of the Dwarfs of Stonebridge, it has been home to the grand wizard Yaztromo for as long as anyone can remember. As you walk towards the great door, you are alarmed to see that the limestone blocks at ground level have been turned jet black to a height of three metres. Just as you are about to ring the brass bell hanging in the doorway, the door flies open. A ruddy-faced old man with long white hair and a long white beard stands blocking the doorway, staring at you with a deep frown on his face. He is holding a wooden staff and is dressed in long, flowing scarlet robes. He is wise-looking, and you don't feel threatened despite his cold stare. 'Hello. Do I know you? Have we met before? Have you come here to deliver my cakes? If not, you can turn around and be on your way!' he says abruptly. You reply, saying that you have bad news regarding his tower. 'My tower? As if I don't know about my tower! Look at it! It's turning black! It's as though black ink is coming out of the ground and is creeping up the walls to stain the beautiful limestone. At this rate it will be totally black before the end of the week! Even my powerful magic can't seem to stop it. It's terrible! Have you any idea what is going on?' You tell Yaztromo that the reason why you have come to see him is to tell him about Zanbar Bone's plans to take over his tower. 'Zanbar Bone! He's coming back, is he? I should have known. If that piece of skeletal detrius thinks he is going to take over my tower and rule Allansia, he's got another think coming! You better come in and tell me all about it.' You enter his tower and follow the grand wizard slowly up his winding wooden staircase. He huffs and puffs his way all the way up to his library on the fourth floor where he slumps down into his favorite armchair, mopping his brow with a bright orange handkerchief. You sit down next him and recount the alarming tale told to you by poor Horace Wolff. 'I see. This is very bad news indeed,' he says, looking glum. 'It's getting late, so I suggest you spend the night here. We'll have some supper and come up with a plan! How hungry are you? Do you want to eat right away? Or would you like to look at my fine collection of books?'

Eat immediately?
Look at Yaztromo's books first?
