You follow Maldred into the largest house.

Inside, a large hall is filled with a mess of chairs, tables and rotten food. Some of them are knocked over and lays sprawled on the ground.

The sounds of hollow wooden creaking are heard throughout with a hushed wind accompanying it.

At the very end of one of the largest tables sits Maldred. He unpacks what looks to be an apple from his robes and is getting ready to eat.

You sit down across from him and start to talk.
