Their mission is to delay the advance of the vastly larger army from Brill by any and all means necessary.
Before long they spot a group of supply wagons escorted by Brillian troops. As battle was joined Kara, Trotts, Red, and Preacher split off to chase down the leader of the Brillian troops, who immediatly fled.
“Mop up this crew, burn the wagons, and meet up back at camp!”, she snarls at the group before chasing off.
The remaining four Brillian’s tried their best, and nearly too down Yeme but in the end proved no match for our heroes.
The group discovered one of the wagons contained Brillian commoners, pressed unwillingly into military service and freed them. They also the soldiers cloaks and insignia, and a cask of rum from one of the other wagons, before burning them all, along with the bodies of the soldiers.
Longrod killed one of the oxen that had pulled the wagons and cut off a haunch. The rest of the animals were set free.
The group then rested back at camp, before Kara ad the others returned. They had been successful at catching the fleeing officer and had gained some intel before dispatching him.
Trotts, the dwarven heavy, made quite a sight sparring with the much lighter and quicker Longrod.
The night passed uneventfully but the next morning, just after the squad split up, and before the group had left camp, a group of Brillian soldiers stumbled upon them.
Things might have gone badly for the companions, except that one of the enemy soldiers tripped and snapped a branch, causing his companion to curse him, and giving the group precious seconds to prepare.
The Brillians were no match for Ben, Mercurio, Longrod, and Yeme. Ben called forth the vines and weeds of the forest to entangle the soldiers. Mercurio called forth an enchanted slumber that sent several soldiers to the ground, and Longrod and Yeme took care of things from there.
A prisoner was taken, interrogated, and finally dispatched, trembling in fear. The party collected the cloaks and insignias once again from the soldiers and then dumped their bodies in the nearby river.
