Yeah, what I wrote is somewhat confusing, I can see that now.
The quest does work (You can complete it eitherby fighting or by pork(ing!)).
It just doesn't seem to work properly (At least for me); you never have to go to the village if you choose to fight the Umberdroth, the tactical map loads immediately (After a few choice texts actually but still, you don't move at all) and that goes against the Quest Description:
"There used to be nearby village, until a traveler brought an umberdroth to town.
After putting on a show, the creature went wild and wrecked half the town. Naturally the villagers fled for their lives.
The umberdroth on the other hand has taken a liking to the village. Clear it out and they'll give you their only item of real value, an enchanted sword."
<Description>He's useless. I will handle the Umberdroth myself</Description>
<Description>Make your way to the village</Description>
Shouldn't they actually let you arrive at the Abandoned Village before setting up the fight?

Also, and this is a separate issue, but can "JoinArmy" Quest units be beefed up? The Naja, the Butcherman, and the Umberdroth are all a bit underpowered (Maybe level 3 would be nice?)
For example, in Quest_RampagingUmberdroth:
Either fight a level 9 Umberdroth (Beefed up to 18 if using Insane World Setting? [Can't remember if World Setting applies to Quest Spawns] ) which you could tame (Beastlord / Collar)
JoinArmy: Umberdroth Level_1 (Really? I get that getting 6 SaltedPorks isn't very hard, but unless you find this quest right at the beginning this isn't gonna be very useful or maybe I'm just not protective enough of my little things).
