Guards for hire is a quest where you need to find some bandits that stole the merchants goods. When you find them they have been attacked by orks and the goods stolen by the orks. Hunting down the orks you recover most of the goods and can pick from two options to complete the quest. Return the goods or keep the goods. Returning them the merchant thanks you and gives you 200 gold. Keeping them gives you the goods to sell valued at 400 gold.
