We stuck around and investigated the forest. Found out there was a camp of ~200 mercs hanging out ready to attack the town, which we reported to the Count. Unfortunately, the point was made that though we might make plans to ambush them in the forest and burn it to the ground, there is no reason we should risk our necks doing so. 3 vs 200 is stupid, even with some backup from the Count who doesn’t have much manpower. We elected to return to town and wait it out, but that night the Talons moved in with catapults and soldiers and attempted to take the town and keep. Without promise of a reward from either side we booked it. We marched for 11 hours through the night and headed north to Emricksburg, where they had some mining trouble. We are clearing out the gold mines when our wizard had to leave.
