As you explore the river...

...you come across a solitary figure crouched down by edge of the bank.

Old Orc

Greetings young soul! I came across some odd objects recently. Would you like to see? Sometimes you just need to be patient enough and the stream will turn up something interesthing.

"Look here then! Ain't they pretty?" The Old Orc shows you a strange fiery feather and what looks like a cracked dragon egg! "You never know what use these kind of things may have later down the path." - the Orc muses as he returns to watching the river flow by.
