Some soldiers stationed at Fódlan's Locket abandoned their posts. They weren't what you'd call upstanding folks. It would be a real headache for us if they became bandits and started wreaking havoc in the towns.
A soldier has obtained information about the deserters. It seems they are skilled soldiers, so you should persuade them to join you.
  1. Head to battle against the deserter soldiers.
  2. Report to the requester.
I heard that you handed a crushing defeat to those Fódlan's Locket deserters. Sounds like, after your little intervention, they've changed their tune and are back on our side. Thanks for keeping 'em in line.
