While gathering provisions in Oregent the adventurers overhear a merchant griping about the increase in burglaries.
"Well now here we have ne'er been a town free of crime, but now things 'er gettin' odd. Many a folk has been complain'n 'bout losin' stuff, but Gerald said he caught his wife walkin out a' the house with their silver in her blouse and his wife denies it! Odd things are about."
After asking around a bit there are suspicions that a Doppleganger named Verenkilar is responsible. You also hear about a goblin named Sneaks that may be involved.
