Retrieve the Rare Hides.
I have a stash of extremely rare leathers, or... rather, I did. I don't know how, but the Venture Company must have heard how valuable my collection was because they stole it! And THEN they had the audacity to leave a note offering to sell it back to me for 1,000 gold! As the "former owner", I'm able to "best appreciate the value of their new acquisition." The note states they'll be in the bluffs to the East until someone buys them. However you get the skins, consider them yours.
