Ursula is a were-bear; she and Stewart, the bailiff of a rural feudal estate are lovers, sharing all their secrets as lovers often do. Recently something has been taking livestock. He must deal with suspicions that a bear is involved (one has been seen nearby...): she must defend herself if it is revealed (perhaps by a jealous suitor, perhaps accidentally) that she is a lycanthrope. The adventurers might be called in to track the hungry beast(s) and discover her secret, but be able to reveal that the culprits are a small pack of wolves that has moved in to the area. The adventurers might earn the gratitude of both Ursula and Stewart, depending on what they reveal, and to whom.
