No, The ones I think are crooked are always with every group and are the leaders.

"Right. Then we need to deal with those leaders, and have others take their place. That means the sergeants must be eliminated as well. How many groups are here?"

Re: Campaigning in Zenther
Four at most, at shift change, two between shifts ... 7 mean each plus two leaders, and they are the soldiers that came with Baron Nutt.

"I am thinking to start there. Deal with the head, and the rest will fall. Though having Cupeth with me would help...how easy is that?"

Re: Campaigning in Zenther
Not so easy, ya need to get the guards on your side first. But if ya offed the new leaders an they know ya, it could be done too.

"Getting the guards on side is likely to take quite some time, and seems more risky. Unless you know something I don't, it would seem best to deal with the cancer at the core..."

Re: Campaigning in Zenther
Fine, follow me ... he leads you up the servants stairs to a serving station at the third floor. The stairs continue up from here.
The room to the right is a bed chamber, the one here is the sun room, give me a second and I'll se if they are in here alone.

He opens a peep hole in the door, looks in and closees it stepping back. He looks at you and speaks softly General Spolder, Baron Nutt and one of Nutt's sergeants are talking, the sergeant noticed me looking in, as is my job.

Lileth puts two arrows in her left hand and a third on the bow string, ready to be drawn and fired.  Keep my line of fire open dear.

Assuming it is easy to open the door, the will say to the servant.

"Right. Thank you. Go now. The sergeant would not know if it was you or me looking, right?" Disappear now, and see if you can find any men loyal to Cupeth."


"Lilith, target the Sergent first, as soon as he makes a bad move to either escape or attack.."

Looking to Lilith, he will wait until the man is gone, positioning the Royal symbol of Malcolm on his chest where it is clearly visible. Then he will open the door and enter, staying to one side he will approach.

"In the name of Duke Malcolm, stand down. You have imprisoned the Dukes selected representative, and the Duke will want to know why."

He will draw his knives as he moves to the two leaders, to block their escape.

Re: Campaigning in Zenther
The three men all jerk around to look at you ... i assume you move to the side away from the windows (To your left) ... There is a double door in the middle of the wall to your left and another to your right front next to the windows, a single door to another room.

One of the men (not in armor) commands Sergeant take him out.


The sergeant has his blade half out when an arrow apprears in his left eye, causing him to reel back slightly, then crumple to the carpet.

The man who commanded him turns to look at him with his mouth open in surprise.

The other man (In Lorica Segmenta) commands I am in Command here, Duke Malcolm appointed me and orered the traitor Cupeth be put in the Dungeons. His hand goes to his arming sword.

"The fact  you did not recognize the Dukes seal I wear already condemns you as a liar and a traitor. And now I find you dealing with this other Zenther servant confirms it."

He slashes out at the armoured mans neck with his knife...

Re: Campaigning in Zenther
The Unarmord man shrinks behind the Armored man, Then screams as an arrow strikes his back and stcicks deeply in the back of his right shoulder.

The armored man  attempts todraw his sword, but fails as he lets go to block with his hands unsuccessfully.

Roll slashing damage and subtrat one for the damage to his hand.

Re: Campaigning in Zenther
Very messy as blood sprays everywhere and the General gos down.

The Noble yells Guards!  as he backs away trying to hold a chair between the two of you, headed for the single door.


Don't worry about him, he'll want you to talk, worry about me. Need another arrow?   Lileth says from the serving room.


The Noble stops, and looks at her, then tries to hold the chair up as a shield.

Mustafa moves quickly to the opposite side of the Noble from Lilith, blocking his exit and forcing him to choose who to defend against. If at any stage he turns his back, he will close quickly, expecting more guards to enter the room soon.

"So, who are you and who do you serve? Zenther or Malcolm?"

If allowed to close from behind, he will put the knife at his throat and stay behind him.

He glanced at Lilith for a split second with a nod.

"The fact that you did not recognise Malcolms symbol around my neck is enough indication you are no Baron under Malcolm, but are indeed a Zenther dog...and those 'nobles' are not worthy of the title of commoners, much less Baron."

He steps forward and raises his knife...

"He clearly does. not know Malcolm,. and like all Zenther.  nobles he will abuse his position. We are better with him dead...his minions will understand then. Alive, even good men who do not know Malcolm's seal will be unsure."

Re: Campaigning in Zenther
