Nova Aetas - Hunt 0.3: Wolves

A small pack of wolves is killing the chickens and cattle of numerous breeders in the area. The wolves seem to be very organised and quite dangerous. The mayor asks for their fur, to put an end to this butchery.

The mercenary companions decide to take on the job of hunting down these wolves, hoping to acquire some parts from the wolves with which to craft some new kind of alchemical gear. They head into the woods around Bologna to track down the dangerous pack of wolves, but it turns out they are the ones being tracked.

Nova Aetas - Quest 1: Rare Grass

While lying low in Assisi, mostly hanging out in taverns trying not to draw attention to themselves, the mercenary band meet Samuele Broglio, the Elder. He is looking to hire some mercenaries for a potentially dangerous job.

“I’m looking for the rare grass that grows only along the southern edges of the forest, a grueling area, through which it is very difficult to pass. You will be very well compensated for each plant you successfully bring to me.”

The companions have a good amount of money and random elements they've looted, but are limited by their small amount of the mystical philosopher's stone, which they need in order to craft any additional gear. Therefore, they decide to take on the job in the expectation of earning some philosopher's stone, which should allow them to create some useful new items the next time they are able to visit a fine craftsman.
