Lessons in Ethics

Per Skinny's warning, you keep your distance from the fearsome spine-covered radwulf and call out to him.

"Radwulf, I'm looking for Skinny Dakota!  Do you know where I might find him?"

"Why should I help you?" snarls the radwulf.  "Why should I help any human, when no human has ever helped me?"  You hesitate to ask how you might be able to help, afraid that he might ask you to massage his tense shoulders.  That's when you notice the note, fastened to a nearby lamppost.

"Afraid to aid the dangerous beast?  Some lessons in ethics may help."
