(player's name), isn't it? Just who I was looking for. We have a rather interesting job, requiring a bit of brains rather than brawn. Are you interested?
Questgiver goes on:
Here's the situation. Seems (noble's name) has this pet sabertooth tiger -- don't ask -- and it ran off a few days ago. (He/She) had it tracked to (dungeon), but now we need someone to go in there and bring it out. Alive. The trick is that it's been trained to respond to this bell. The tiger should become docile if you ring the bell in its face. Of course, (noble's name) did say it isn't trained too well -- are you surprised? -- so you may have to smack it upside the head once or twice to get its attention. Just don't kill it, OK? Bring it back to (noble's name) at (noble's residence) in one piece within (time limit) days, and he'll pay you (random gold) gold. Good luck.
Yeah, you're right, I did say this job needed brains didn't I?
Head to the dungeon the questgiver mentioned to you and find the sabertooth tiger within. Once you have found the tiger, hit it once without killing it and use the bell the questgiver gave you. The tiger will now follow you.
The Dead Lover
Next to where you find the tiger, there will be a dead body. There is a 50% chance that the body will contain a letter saying:
Dear (lover's name),
I am sorry I can't be with you today in (residence), but I wanted to take a moment to let you know that you are in my thoughts as always, my sweet. I am sitting here under a tree, on a beautiful afternoon that reminds me of you. Everything reminds me of you, my darling, the shining sun in the sky, the chirping birds in the trees, even the pretty pet tiger walking with its owner over there. Ha ha! The tiger has gotten loose, the scamp. It is bounding over my way. See how its coat gleams in the sun, like your hair in the firelight. Its owner is shouting something and ringing a little bell, but it doesn't listen. Such a high spirited beast! It seems friendly enough, here it comes to say hello...
Return to the town in which you received the quest and ask around to learn the location of the lover's residence. Speak to the lover, who will say:
Yes, what do you want? Oh...good gracious, a letter from (victim's name)! Why is it stained with blood? (He/She)'s dead? Dear me. (he/she) always was so sweet to me, I'm afraid (he/she) had the delusion that we were in love. Poor soul, what a tragic end. I certainly appreciate you telling me what happened. I'll make sure (his/her) family knows. Here, why don't you take this (magical item) (he/she) gave me. I certainly don't have any use for it.
Read your quest journal to find out which town the noble lives in and travel there. Ask around to learn the location of the noble's residence, and go talk to her with the tiger following you. She will say:
Oh, (tiger's name), darling, you're safe! Thank you so much for bringing my baby back home to me. I'm sure he didn't give you any trouble, did he? He's just a big kitty cat at heart, wouldn't hurt a fly. Here's your (random gold) gold, just like I promised that nice (questgiver's name) at the Fighter's Guild.
