What does this information mean?

Birchbark believes something truly terrible must have happened to the Green Hoods slain within the orcish citadel, all those years ago. If only there was someone sneaky enough to get in and get out of Scourge Keep in order to investigate the mystery first-hand.


  1. Find someone really sneaky.
  2. Speak to Grassblade at Green Hood Landing.
    • Note: You must have done all four of Tusk's quests before Grassblade will show up.
