The Ones Who Got Away is a quest in Bastard's Wound.
You have come across a collective of refugees inside the Oldwalls. Investigate the situation before determining how you want to proceed.
Tidecaster Wagstaff can be found in the south east corner of Bastard's Wound just beyond where the Scarlet Chorus are camped.
Forge-Bound Master Jaspos can be found north east of his forge in the northern part of Bastard's Wound.
Scribe Mell can be found near the entrance of Bastard's Wound.
- Simple. In order to progress, talk to Wagstaff, Jaspos, and Mell, then decide the fate of the settlement. Allowing it to continue its existence enables merchants and the rest of the quests. A purge obviously eliminates the Wound, but also allows you to unlock a special achievement.
