Howling at Midnight

General Quest

Milo tells you how some wolves were recently fighting amongst themselves, and then they ran through town. He wants you to talk to his wife Linda, who was outside when it happened.


1) Talk to Linda Bolger, back in Budgeford, west of Milo (31.4s, 65.6w). She is greatly disturbed, and tells you her tale of wolf horror. She wants you to investigate further.

2) Search the Yale-height. Linda says:

"That's to the southeast of here, way down across Stock Road, not far northeast of Woodhall. The wolf was standing by the three pillars atop the hill. You might find something there."

Yale-height is closer to Woodhall than it is to Stock or Budgeford. You will be able to see the hill, and the pillars, from some distance away. You will find a rune-inscribed collar in the middle of the pillars (33s, 65w). Double-click it to pick it up.

3) Bring rune-inscribed collar to Linda Bolger.

4) After you speak with her and select "Finish Now", you get your coin reward, XP, and you will now be able to take her next quest, The Secret of the Collar.
