Speak with the lady
To begin the quest, talk to the lady in her house in Tsutsu.
She’ll tell you that some peasants have stolen her food.
Defeat the bandits
Use the guiding wind to reach the location of the so called peasants.
As you arrive, you’ll meet bandits instead. Defeat all of them. You can use Standoff to begin the fight.
