Huntsman Challenge #2: Trinsic Calls for Aid!

Chesapeake Player Event
June 2018 Huntsman Challenge

The Story Continued

It is the evening hours on a warm Spring night. Tarisber Hawkeye enters his cabin located in the woods of Nidaros, content from his recent success in helping make the roads safer for all that travel. It has been many nights since Tarisber has been home to his cabin and able to relax. Several parchments line his table, no doubt delivered recently by the local courier at the Ranger's Guild.

The Grizzly Bear population has finally been brought under control and they are no longer brazenly approaching caravans. It would appear that the sense of fear has been returned to the Grizzlies, as they are now once again wary of human interaction. He can only hope this peace with the Grizzlies will last. Tarisber briefly furrows his brow when he thinks of all the Grizzly Bears that were hunted to accomplish this, but quickly reminds himself that it was for the greater good.

Tarisber's thoughts shift suddenly as he picks up a parchment on his table and begins to read. It is news from the Skara Brae trade minister. They indicate that they are once again receiving shipments of goods from Vesper and other cities, and the rioting over supplies in the town has subsided. "Great News!", thought Tarisber, as he continues to shuffle through the parchments.

The next parchment is from the Governor of Trinsic, Phoenix. She thanks Tarisber for his work and indicates that since trade routes are so plentiful now they are able to supply their farmers with extra supplies and their farms are flourishing like never before. "More chickens than you've ever seen!", exclaimed Phoenix in the letter. "Vegetables are growing like never before, livestock are roaming free in the fields, and citizen approval has never been higher!". "How fortuitous", thought Tarisber, especially with elections upon us. He quietly contemplates taking a vacation to Trinsic in the coming weeks.

Weary from all his recent work, Tarisber decides to call it a night. He settles into bed and begins to drift off. Suddenly, Tarisber is awoken by a loud crash through his window. "Oh no! The Grizzlies are here for revenge!", he tiredly thought to himself. He leaps out of bed and goes for his hunting knife, "come at me Grizzlies!", he menacingly growls. Noticing no Grizzlies in his cabin, he stands confused for a moment. "Was that a dream?", he confusingly thought to himself as he lowers his knife.

Just then, he notices some movement out of the corner of his eye. It appears to be a messenger pigeon walking in circles on the ground, no doubt dazed from crashing through his window. He picks up the pigeon which remarkably appears to be uninjured and notices a scrap of parchment tied to its leg. Tarisber begins to untie the parchment and notices the seal of Trinsic is adorned up on it. "I thought Trinsic pigeons were top of the line", Tarisber mumbles, "why did this poor thing crash through my window?"

As Tarisber finishes removing the parchment from the pigeon, he notices a "Raised in Minoc" tag attached to it. "Ahh… that explains it", he chuckles to himself. "I wonder why Phoenix would use a non-official pigeon", he contemplates, "whatever she is trying to convey she must want kept off the record." Tarisber opens the parchment and begins to read…

"Ranger Hawkeye, please, you must help! The increase of supplies to our farmland has also seemed to attract many Grey Wolves! There are migrating south and coming into the farms in droves! The farmers cannot fend them off and they are destroying our crops and livestock! The farmers have begun rioting, they demand action be taken.

The City Guard is already stretched thin trying to keep order in Trinsic, we cannot re-task them with guarding our farms. I told them we were doing what we could, but they were not happy. An angry farmer picked up his pitchfork and led a charge upon the Governor's Office! I was forced to retreat out my secret escape tunnel and I am currently in hiding for fear of personal harm.

I am calling upon your expertise with wild animals to help us with this matter. Please, if you can do anything to deter the Grey Wolves from settling near us and attacking our farms, I would be in your debt! I fear I must remain in hiding until the situation has de-escalated. Please reach out to my trusted adviser, Cutthroat Sally, at the Tea House outside Homare in the Tokuno Islands if you are able to assist."

Wide awake now, Tarisber lowers the parchment. "This is terrible!", he says to the pigeon, before realizing he was just talking to a pigeon. "Coo Coo!", replies the pigeon.

"I must travel at once to the Tokuno Islands and inform Cutthroat Sally that I will assist in this matter", Tarisber thinks to himself this time, before giving the pigeon the 'shifty eyes'.

Tarisber grabs a blank parchment and addresses it to the Ranger's Guild for immediate release.

Event Details

Shard: Chesapeake

From the rest of June, until the 30th @ 11:59pm EST, anyone that turns in a completed hunting permit marking the kill of a Grey Wolf will be automatically entered in for a chance to win various prizes.

The recorded kill with the Heaviest weight will be declared the winner. See below for prizes and additional ways to win.

The bonus hunting location for this challenge is "The Forest West of Trinsic". If your permit is the winning permit, and it is from the bonus location, you will win an extra reward.

To participate, obtain a Hunter's Permit from The Huntmaster located in the Ranger's Guild outside the City of Skara Brae. Click on The Huntmaster and choose the menu option for "Get Hunting Permit". Permits cost 5000 gold pieces each, which will be deducted directly from your account balance. You may carry as many permits on you as you want.


Location of the Skara Brae Ranger's Guild





For your convenience, runes to the Ranger's Guild can also be found at the following [CAH] houses in New Magincia:


You may also take the Public House Teleporter from the SW [CAH] house, which will take you to the Nidaros Hunting Lodge. From there, it is a very short run West to the Ranger's Guild:​




After acquiring your Hunting Permit(s), head out into the woods and locate a Grey Wolf. Once you have slain a Grey Wolf, double-click the hunting permit in your backpack, then target the corpse of the Sea Serpent to record the kill. You can review the stats of your kill by mousing over the permit.

If you are happy with the stats of your kill, return your permit to any mailbox at the Nidaros Hunting Lodge. You may enter more than once!

You are still able and encouraged to participate! Just ask in General Chat if anyone would be able to deposit it for you, more than likely there will be someone online that is happy to help you! If not, just send me a message and I will meet you in-game to collect your permits.
