- Talk to Shepherd Jacob
- Find and kill all Jacob's mutated sheep
- Talk back to Shepherd Jacob to get your reward
On your trip north to Artamark's Gate you meet Shepherd Jacob in Ulli's Potato Field. He tells you he's been attacked by his own sheep! That sounds strange, specially when you see the man is in absolute panic... you wonder what happened to those sheep, so you ask Jacob where the sheep are right now and you decide to look for them.
Go to the meadow and see what's wrong with the sheep!
My goodness! This has never happened to me before. Look at this! One of my sheep bit me, then they all chased me and I ran away like a frightened rabbit. I ran away from a flock of sheep! All I wanted to do was take them some water, now I'm afraid to go back to the meadow. Look at my hands, they’re still shaking. And to think I've fended off wolves with my staff in the past!
What am I supposed to do now! I am their shepherd.
Hmm, you look pretty brave. Could you go see what's wrong with my sheep? I will reward you for your efforts.
You are told to find the sheep in the nearby mountain slope, so you begin walking north-east with your eyes wide open... you can smell something in the air!
After a short walk you find all the sheep toghether. They seem to be eating grass pacefully, but as soon as you get close to them... the sheep are mutated, one of them is speaking!! The sheep want to eat you, they are attacking you so you have no choice but kill them all!!
We've given you woll and meat for long enough. Now we want your meat...aaargh!
Finally you run back to talk again with Shepherd Jacob and explain him what happened. Obviously the man is upset! He's lost his sheep, everything he had... but he's a honest man and gives you the reward he promised!
What? You had to kill all my sheep?
Sure you were attacked - hogwash! How am I going to make a living now! those sheep were the only things I owned.
Okay, I promised you a reward, and I'll give it to you.
