Starting Location: Empty Baskets
Travel northeast toward the woods
After speaking to the peasant woman, head to the northeast towards the waypoint.
Search for the bandits
When you even get near the center of the search zone, you’ll be given a new waypoint in the woods to follow.
Enter the woods
Head towards the waypoint, and eventually you will hear bandits talking, and inadvertently find out that the woman had lied to you about the food. Still, they’re bandits, so…
Search for the stolen food
Once all the bandits have been killed, look in the camp for a basket of rice.
Return the rice to the woman
Go back to the woman and confront her about the lie. No one looks good in this tale.
