Master, the following is the conversation as accurately as I can make it
Voice 1: It no good our supply lines are too stretched. We haven't got a base anything like close enough.
Voice 2: But we need to go further into Klarius's territory, we still need the remaining pieces of the map, and we know that at least one of the artifacts lies in there
Voice 1: But there is no way that we can do that. Even with our stealth we will eventually be spotted by Klarius's cavalry.
Voice 3: Not me - they wouldn't spot me - not even if they came within a hundred yards.
Voice 4: I know Ratty, but I need you for the other project.
Voice 3 (Ratty): But I could sneak in first and then go...
Voice 4: No I can't afford the delay. Quatermaster? can you hear us from there?
Voice 5 (Quatermaster): ** Barely. *** But enough **
Voice 4: How long till you can set out?
Voice 5 (quatermaster): ** let me check **** Give me ten minutes, then do what you have to do.
Voice 4: You have 15, but they start from now. I can't keep this link much longer.
Voice 5 (quatermaster)** received and out.
Voice 4: you are both right of course, we need a base closer. I can't think of anywhere better than here. It gives us a good vantage point, we can see when Klarius's cavalry goes raiding into Sir Pleb's territory.
voice 1: its amazing how well he defends with so little.
Voice 4: He knows what he is doing, just enough troups to defend his lands, whilst investing in an ever growing economy.... If he can hold out long enough.... who knows.
There was silence then for a while.
Voice 4: OK he should be clear by now. The new base is here, Quartermaster will bring all the gear we have got so far - pity we have to lose the buildings though. Wait... there is someone else here!
At that point I pressed the amulet as instructed sire.
Very well done. Can you determine where you were on this map
About a days journey into the northern hills from here.
Well it seems like we have a new player in this game. I wonder what they want in Klarius's territory.
