I received this by pidgeon last night:
I have inspected the forest west of Vesper in search of the queen. I searched as far as west of Minoc.
I found no evidence of a Queen. However i did run into some Giant Spiders gathered together which seemed unusual since i have never seen that many spiders gathered in the open. I quickly disposed of them and continued my search but found nothing else suspicious.

From the report of Recruit Clutch –
I was just patrolling though Vesper and found some Drone Scout Spiders. Travelers BEWARE!
It seems that we are being scouted. I also received reports from several guardsmen of them engaging multiple of these “scout spiders” in the woods outside of Vesper. I urge all guardsmen to patrol there to track down where these spiders are coming from and how we can stop them. I intend to report this matter to the king, as it seems they are after something in Vesper. Any clues could be helpful so I urge the Royal Guard to maintain patrols through the wooded area from Vesper to Minoc.
