Lords of Whitecliff
Met the party while traveling to Treetown to sell meat from his slaughtered stock.
Told the party that he was selling is flock because something was taking livestock and with the steep losses, he was better off selling what he had left, rather than lose more.
When prompted, he explained that the westernmost farmers were blaming goblins for raiding their livestock.
He suggested that they part visit “Merl”, the farmer who lives the furthest west, and nearest the goblins.
