While Optional, to save the counselor, mirror the steps mentioned below. Our focus shifts to the fitting room, housing a Trapped Man under Debris.

Proceed with caution. Save your progress before advancing, just in case anything goes wrong. Break the door to Reach the Trapped Man but also note that the door will explode.

You can sidestep this risk by Inflicting Ranged Damage from the Opposite End of the Room. Considering the door’s Blast Radius, be careful with your approach.

Speak To Benryn

Outside the inn, you must converse with Benryn, unveiling his concern for his missing wife, Miri. Embark on the task to locate Miri and reunite the pair. Additionally, don’t miss the opportunity: if you rescued the counselor, interact with them to embark on a quest and acquire a rare weapon.

Miri awaits on the structure’s second floor just west of the inn. Regrettably, she has passed away due to the assault. Yet, possessing the skill to speak with the dead allows you to learn the whereabouts of her sister’s dowry.

Revisit Benryn to convey the unfortunate news. He will be profoundly affected and hasten to Miri’s side, prompting another conversation. Engage in a second discussion with Benryn, selecting the dialogue choices that resonate with you. Irrespective of your choices, your next task involves tracking down the dowry.

Locating The Dowry

Should you opt not to use ‘Speak with the Dead’ to uncover Miri’s hidden dowry location, the sole clue you receive is that it’s situated somewhere on the property. Thankfully, the solution lies merely a brief stroll away in a nearby barn.

From the structure housing Miri’s body, proceed to the northwest barn featuring a hay bale. Search the hay bale within the barn to reveal the chest containing the dowry.
