I’ve been too slow. Picked up the bear’s trail a day or so ago. I’m only a day away from Mirabar. Unfortunately, I also picked up another trail. Humanoid. Deep tracks, wide feet. Dwarf or Halfling most likely.
There was a chase, and I’ve found where it ended. No body, but certainly a scuffle. Blood. Lots of it. Brag marks. The bear was victorious.
Shreds of clothing indicate someone poor, not armored. No equipment or gear lying around. Just an old basket, berries and mushrooms scattered about.
Gathering food for a family, no doubt.
