The spawning NPC (Storm Private) appears at x23.8, y16.4
Storm Private: You have good timing, adventurer. If it is work you seek, you are in luck, for we are in need of several extra hands. Storm Private: My unit has been informed that the kobolds are preparing to start a new dig at a nearby location and have begun hauling their tools to the site. Storm Private: They have yet to catch wind of me and my men, and so if we strike now, we will catch them unawares, giving us the upper hand. We may even succeed in destroying their equipment. What say you? There is a spot for you in our line, and you're entitled to any loot you can find and carry off this godsforsaken mountain. If you survive, that is!
