As you near the road fork for Thornburry, you see two hobbits standing in the road. They are well armed, though not brandishing their weapons. They each wear a travel cloak, obscurring their faces slightly, though not really hiding anything. They each raise an unarmed hand in greeting, the larger of the two calling out to you.
"Hail Travellers! What news from Callenburg?"
