Berud will give you the quest
The Dangerous Rebel
2 - Dras Beclem
Despite the fact that alcohol has been banned in Thalmont, Dras (#2) will readily admit to being a brewer of potato moonshine. But then he'll tell you that he has a problem: a bandit has been prowling the roads near Covengor, disrupting his shipments. If you agree to help Dras get rid of this bandit, then you'll trigger the quest "Alcohol Trail."
You'll run into the bandit south of Covengor (#2a). If you kill him, then you'll find 10 bottles of
on his corpse. If you convince him to leave, then he'll give you five bottles of

, but you can get it for free elsewhere (see #2).
4 - Thieves' Cave Entrance
When you approach the Thieves' Cave (#4), you'll run into a man named Ash Lorus loitering outside. He'll tell you that a thief stole a ring from him and then ran into the cave. He'll add that he would have chased the thief himself, but he discovered that the cave is filled with "vicious" skeletons, and he wanted no part of them. This is the set-up for the quest "Follow the Thief."
You'll automatically agree to help Ash, and he'll give you a
to use against the skeletons (since skeletons are immune to slashing and piercing damage, you might need the bludgeoning damage of the club to do them in -- but hopefully you have something better already; if not, you should find something better, because you'll be facing a lot of skeletons in the game).
Inside the cave you'll encounter several skeletons as expected, plus Tyco Thorn the thief (#4a). When you approach him, Tyco will explain that the skeletons in the cave are supposed to be protecting him against intruders, but that they've started attacking him as well. He'll then ask you to deal with the rogue skeletons, and, as a sign of good faith, he'll give you Lorus'

Even if you killed all of the skeletons on your way to Tyco, more will spawn for the quest. Specifically, a bunch of skeletons will appear next to the cave entrance (#4). Killing these skeletons will grant you a skill point, and then when you return to Tyco, he'll reward you with experience and gold.
But wait; there's more. Tyco will next ask you to contact the necromancer who raised the skeletons, and ask him to fix the problem. Triggering this quest, "Talk to the Necromancer," is important because the necromancer won't appear at his hut (#6) otherwise.
When you reach the necromancer, he'll agree to help out the thief, and that's where the quest will end. You won't receive any sort of reward. However, when you give the
back to Lorus, he'll give you a reward: some experience and 2 points of reputation with the Brotherhood.
5 - Graveyards
You'll find a pair of
in both of these graveyards. You'll need such shoots for a series of quests from Orm Varagor (#6).
6 - Necromancer's Hut
Orm Varagor will only appear at his hut after you've completed a quest for the thief in the Thieves' Cave (#4). When you talk to Orm, he'll agree to help out the thief in the cave, and then he'll make you a proposition: if you can bring him some
