The bandits came. Their leader had only three this time. Ayla hid in the stables, Falon and I positioned ourselves at the tables, and Kelthar was outside the gates, so they would have nowhere to go. Nowhere to run.
When they ordered Oleg to collect their ‘monthly tribute’, the leader turned to me, claiming a tax against elves. Racist. Once one came close enough to touch for the coin, I began casting. Ayla and Kelthar emerged and quickly laid waste to them, while Falon fired bolt after bolt.
Falon went to let Oleg, taking cover in the storerooms, know it was safe while I went to check for any signs of reinforcements.
We left one alive to interrogate as brutally as need be. He nearly vomited on me.
Which would have been a lot easier if Ayla and Kelthar hadn’t allowed Oleg to string them up off the side of the keep. Including our unconscious prisoner, who became very much dead. Such cack.
With no lead, and surprisingly no tracks to follow, we opted to begin mapping the Greenbelt starting with Oleg‘s sector and simply ’hope’ to encounter the bandits.
I should have listened to my Mother. Winter always follows spring.

The majority of our day was spent on the road, passing plains and the tip of a vast forest. We were alone, as the other companies had turned off the path to their lands or went ahead. Our company of four set out for the most vast land, Greenbelt, a currently uncharted region and rumored to be marauded by bandits led by a ‘stag lord’.
We arrived at Oleg‘s trading post shortly before nightfall. Small, at the curve of the road. His wife, Svetlana, told us of their bandit problem. The post has been visited monthly by bandits. They would take the furs and anything else of value and depart somewhere to the south.
The first visit had eight bandits, not including a man and woman leading. The next had only six and the man, and then he was accompanied by a mere four. Oleg believes the next group will have even less. We must have flown on angel’s wings, for the bandits are due to arrive tomorrow.
The only question is how to handle them. Oleg calls for their deaths, but I think perhaps we could allow them to leave and track them to their larger camp? Or stop them on the road, so that Oleg and Svetlana can deny they had even arrived? Ayla and Kelthar say that we will not allow them to leave with their lives.
When they come, we will execute them all, as is the punishment for banditry under the flag of the Burning Crown.
