To tell you the truth, I never wanted to bring my men out here. But the commander was insistent. Seems this Kraemer fellow is one of ours; his father was a decorated member of the Order. Though why he decided to settle out here escapes me. A shame to see good blood reduced to dirt farmers, but it's their choice, <name>.
Now we've got ourselves a nice mess, <name>. The farmers don't trust us, and nightmarish creatures are pouring down from the mountains. I'm starting to think Siegmund had the right of it. A bit of bread and meat means more to these folks right now than finding the source of this blight.
But we won't be of any use to them at all if we keep losing our men to this plague! Even worse, Siegmund's folk are telling stories about some corpses getting up and walking! Private Krueller succumbed to the plague a few days back.
I want you to investigate these rumors before I go about notifying his next of kin.
Head to the fields in the Suskarg Hills and investigate the claims that corpses have begun walking. Deal with the reanimated remains of Herbert Krueller and check his body for clues about what is causing the plague.
