Kemal and Drayin head out to look for Elderberry trees in order to make simple bows which they hope to sell to Gringle or at the Swan Market. They are also on the lookout for herbs for the shaman: Cattail and Sorghum to make a healing salve. While scouring the edge of the Wilds they run into a bunch of clan youngsters that are setting up traps to catch hares. After spending a lot of time looking for their wood, they notice an unknown traveler fighting a small gang of ducks. One of the ducks is lying on the ground, and the boys are uncertain which side they have to take, but as they approach the unknown traveler flees. They soon learn that the trespassing traveler intended to kill the ducks in order to get the Lunar reward, something that is frowned upon in the Hiording clan. They take care of the wounded duck and report what happened to Dar Swan, who sends out a patrol to look for the stranger. Our young adventurers deliver the herbs to the shaman and Drayin starts manufacturing the crude bows.
