You ride your horse up the path leading to Duffy's ford, a small Hibernian hamlet. It's just blackened timbers, although there have been a few feeble attempts at rebuilding. There is a middle-aged man making clay bricks by what was once a guest house and tavern. "Hello", you say. "Can I help with anything?" The man studies you for a moment. "Aye", he replies. "There's plenty to do around here. You can gather up the missing sheep, help rebuild and hunt for some food."
Complete one of the man's tasks.
Ask about the source of the fire.
