Find Han Stormstout in the Morrowchamber beneath Kor'vess.
There will be time for mourning later. For now, there are other Stormstouts to be found.
They say that Han Stormstout was last seen exploring Kor'vess. I suspect he headed into that mantid burrow, just across the way.
You should meet me down there, <name>. I don't doubt that I can handle a few mantid by myself... but I'd feel better with you by my side.
