the city is quite a ways away, a days worth of travel, you travel for 5 hours *rolling for encounters* The first two hours are uneventful, but the last three you are traveling and see the signs of men going off the road and of into the hills, at least 10 of them.

I keep going. If they could even be hostile, I would easily be overwhelmed, and I have the mission to sell this grain.

Also Copse was not a misspell


you follow the tracks, you end up in gentle hills, when you crest one you find a group of 10 men, fighting at least 30 lightly armed and armored bandits, you see a Flag emblazoned on all 10 men's shields, they all wear Leather vests and have short spears and small shields

I tell me men to be quite.... After the battle I will slowly confront the surviving team. Walking in on a battle can cause chaos and can cause me to be attacked.

Valid Point.
I tell my men to charge next to the men with shields (the 'good' guys)
Then , I run over and un-hitch the cart from my horse so that I can ride on the horse into combat. I yell to the shield-men "Behold! The great Irvin has come to save yee!!" {Hopefully this tells them I'm on their side and they won't attack me.

you get on the horse and ride down, to join their line, they've retreated from each other for the few seconds of rest before another charge.


Also good luck using a dagger on a horse
