In-game description[edit | edit source]

The pitch:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Superstitious folk near Road's End have been acting on a rumor that the hair of a dead virgin that was bound and buried alive can cure a Hollowborn. Not only has it resulted in horrific attacks against young women, but unscrupulous merchants have taken to selling bits of hair to those who don't have the stomach to perform the act themselves.

Road's End's local thayns have assigned agents to root out the problem, but they've had little success.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Though [Companion Name] was unable to find the source of the rumors plaguing Road's End and the surrounding erldom of Helsgate, the local authorities assisted in breaking up mobs, punishing would-be murders, and preventing more young women from being buried alive. A particularly large and violent mob at Kell Hill Cemetery required [Companion Name] to rally the local soldiers and put down the primary troublemakers.

On the body of the biggest belligerent, [Companion Name] found an odd, magical rope that he intended to use on a local young woman. A wizard adviser of the erla of Helsgate suspected that the rope had been created by the same person responsible for spreading the rumors and inciting the attacks in the first place.
