StageStatusDescriptionLog Entry
? Go to Priblo's CuriosAccording to the missing persons poster, Janelle went to one of her hunting camps and Raymond's delivery truck is missing. If I can figure out where the truck or camp is, I might be able to locate the Priblos. My best bet is to start at their business.
? Search Priblos' Curios for directions to the hunting campThe shop, Priblo's Curios, is still basically intact. Maybe I can figure out where Raymond's truck went, or where Janelle's camp is located.
? Go to the delivery siteI found a map showing where Raymond may have driven to with his truck. The camp should be nearby. If I go to his truck, I might find Raymond at least.
? Find Janelle's hunting campRaymond's truck is here, but he's not. He probably went into the woods to find Janelle's hunting camp.
? Investigate the area around the campJanelle's camp looks abandoned, like they never returned but intended to. That's not a good sign. I should try to look around for them, just in case.
? Locate Janelle
? Locate Raymond
? Search for the cave
?Quest finishedKill the "Beast of Beckley"Janelle and Raymond are dead. They were shredded by the original "Beast of Beckley" probably, but I've taken care of its descendents at least.
