DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different
Vik, the Kobold, next to the road with a broken down cart, in a field near Mularn gives you the quest to go find Hrrgyf the named hill cat and retrieve his book "The Yellow Canary." After killing Hrrgyf you get the book in your inventory and when you go back to Vik he gives you a letter to take to Dvalin and give to Brok. The reward is nice experience and cash.
Vik stomps his feet angrily, mumbling under his breath in utter frustration.
Vik says, "The blasted cart has broken, I knew something would go wrong on my [way to Fort Veldon]."
Vik says, "Ja! Fort Veldon! On my way from Vasudheim. Bu' me and my men were attacked by [marauding wild animals]!"
Vik says, "You'd never believe it if I told ya! Huge creatures they were. [Big jaws I tell ya]."
Vik says, "Never seen nothin' like it in my life. Was [the biggest cat] I've seen in my whole life, not to mention it scared off all my men."
Vik says, "Oh ya, made a funny sound it sure did, sounded like [hrrrrrgyyf] it did. Had a friend too, mean old Spat!"
Vik says, "What's that you say? Oh ya! The blasted beast ran off and took my favorite book, [The Yellow Canary]."
