You'll receive this quest from Peregund at
Peregund will tell you that with the bridge out, he set up a ferry service to make some extra coin, but that the strong currents dashed his ferry into the rocks, spilling his cargo. Worse, he'll add that when he went looking to see if anything was salvageable, he was attacked by looters and just barely managed to escape. So he'll ask you to deal with the looters and retrieve his cargo.
When you follow the path south to the river, you'll see that Peregund was telling the truth. Two looters will attack you -- and probably die pretty quickly. Then when you reach the broken ferry, you'll meet Hanwen (#2), and you'll learn that the looters aren't really looters but a family devastated by the recent storms looking for anything to survive. (Of course, all of the looters will have money on them, so maybe Hanwen is lying and they're really looters.)
You'll have two ways to complete the quest:
- You can insist that Hanwen and her family stop stealing Peregund's cargo. This will cause them to attack you -- and probably die just as quickly as the other looters. You'll find the
Hermit's Hat on Hanwen's corpse, and you'll find the
Ferry Cargo in a crate next to the ferry. Then when you return to Peregund, he'll reward you with 600 cp, but you'll take a "minor" reputation penalty with Defiance Bay.
- You can agree to lie to Peregund and tell him that his cargo washed away. Hanwen will give you the
Hermit's Hat for this, and then she and the rest of her family will leave, taking the
Ferry Cargo with them. Then when you return to Peregund, he won't give you a reward, but you'll earn a "minor" reputation bonus with Defiance Bay.
After completing the quest, Peregund will leave for
in Defiance Bay, where he'll begin selling traps and
in the market. When you meet him there, if you helped him, then he'll give you a 15% discount on his sell prices. If you helped the looters, then Peregund's prices will be higher than normal.
