Hemet Nesingwary: They say a single hair from the back of a Bristlefur bear is sharp enough to cut a dwarf’s beard. But if the fur doesn’t kill ya, the maul will. Some lesser hunters have been a meal for those bears. Show me you’re more than a snack and bring me back a few of those Bristlefur Pelts.
Hunt Bristlefur bears within the Fields of An’she.
Hemet Nesingwary: The hills are crawlin’ with lions that stalk their prey from afar. These big cats will pounce at anything that catches their eye, including a gnome. While most would fall to such a formidable predator, anyone in my hunting party would be able to best those beasts. Prove you’ve got what it takes by taking down a few of those stalkers.
Hunt Pinerock Stalkers in Pinerock Basin.
Hemet Nesingwary: The hunters’ lodge has attracted a lot of amateurs who call themselves hunters. They’re scaring away all the prize game with their antics. While I’m a known expert with my rifle, I’ve yet to manage the art of negotiation. How about ya do us all a favor and tell those novice hunters to head for the hills?
Confront Amateur Hunters within Pinerock Basin.
Addle Fizzlebog: I’ve followed Hemet on all his expeditions from Stranglethorn to Nagrand to… Nagrand again, taking notes on his grand advantures and turning them into timeless literary tales. But my heart is really in the hunt. I want nothing more than to put down the pen, and pick up a rifle! Hemet promised to teach me how to hunt once I finish his latest novel, but the goats around here ate my first draft! I have no hope of becoming a hunter if my manuscript isn’t recovered.

Shale Greyfeather: The mountains have seen many new travelers pass through their valleys, some without an understanding of our traditions. Our leaders have turned their focus to more pressing matters, but Losro and I cannot ignore the recent arrival of hunters in the nearby basin. They hunt with guns and gadgets, forgoing the experience of hunting with a bow and arrow. While I know that some will remain stuck in their ways, perhaps an offering of arrows will encourage these outsiders to hunt the way we always have.

Oenia Skyhorn: Many centuries ago, I was the leader of the Skyhorn tribe. Never have I seen this sort of desecration of ouor ancient burial ground!
Oenia Skyhorn: I’ve been dead for centuries without having my grave so disturbed… The leader of the local kobolds has stolen my skull from my grave and wears it upon his head! He’s down in the cave below, but a gate blocks your path from retrieving it directly. Kobolds know their leadership by the skulls they wear, and they are unintelligent enough to believe you their leader if you have one yourself. Kill one of their Skullcaptains and recover his Skull of Bossing Around and they may let you into the cave.
