In my haste to escape death-by-zombie, I lost several of the treasure chests I was carrying with me. I don't need them back but I would ask you to break them open and return my stuff to me... please? I am happy to reward you with some coin, my friend.
Once completed he says:
WOOT! Awesome! You got all my stuff back! That's fantastic. Thank you so much. I regret I have nothing more than this stipend of gold to offer you as a reward. Perhaps you can help me with one more problem...?
