Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  3. Find and kill your target within.
  4. Report back to the Fighter Quester within the time limit and collect your reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The lycanthrope may also be a wereboar...
...or just a regular grizzly bear

The Werebeast[edit]

Speak to the Fighter Quester, who says:

"We've got a little job you might be interested in. Seems there's a loup -- whatcha call your basic werewolf, wereboar, or some kind 'o werebeasty that's been bothering a lot of farmers in the area, and we need someone to kill it. It'll mean (random gold) gold in your pocket. That sound interesting to you?"

Accept[edit]

The Fighter Quester goes on:

"Great. You'll find the loup over in (dungeon). We need the poor brute dead in (time limit) days, so you better be on your way, kid."

Decline[edit]

The Fighter Quester answers:

"Fine. Guess someone else'll have to do it."

Thrown for a Loup[edit]

This quest is one of the many dungeon crawls in the game. Head to the dungeon the Fighter Quester mentioned to you and find your target within. It can be a wereboar, a werewolf, or just an ordinary grizzly bear; each creature has a 1 in 3 chance of appearing as the quest target. There may be many creatures of the same type among the random dungeon monsters, but the quest requires you to slay a specific one. When you kill the correct lycanthrope, you receive a message:

The lycanthrope threat is ended.

However, if the quest target is a grizzly bear, the following message pops up:

This must be the "werebeast" everyone is afraid of. Just an ordinary grizzly bear.

Reward[edit]

After killing the target, return to the Fighter Quester and he will say:

"Good job, Loup-killer. Enjoy yer gold."

If you also get the dungeon map he will add:

"Here's a map to a place called (random dungeon). All the killing and treasure you can handle. Knock yourself out."

  • "Get outta here. You're so pathetic. You couldn't even handle werewolf [sic]."
