It's my sworn duty to keep the peace in Hyrstmill an' protect her from them as would do her people harm. If ye mean to stay for a spell, ye'll have to prove ye can be trusted.
Ours ain't a large community, an' we've hardly any fightin' folk, so there's always a need for battle-savvy types, what with all the beasties lurkin' hereabouts.
As it happens, we've been sufferin' from an outbreak of midges of late. The buggers're drivin' our patrols to distraction. Now, if ye were to exterminate, say, half a dozen swarms, we'd know ye for a friend.
