Hmm.  Well, we could have a combination of sorts.  Mostly what you'd deal
with would be either wild animals (that actually look like wild animals)
and more intelligent things like bandits, orcs and other similar critters.
The actual "monsters", which is to say really unusual beasts, would
probably only show up in unusual places.  Like Adonthell itself.

No more difficult to implement than any other subquest, when you think
about it.  Possibly less.
