it's the 8th century AD, britain is in an upheaval, all the various tribes are warring with each other. the various tribes are in a near constant state of warring, and bands of thieves and brigands around and even Germanic pirates pillaging around the coasts. You can be anything really, a trader, a general, a brigand, but you have to work up to it.

I'll try for the villagers, hoping to have as many come with me as I can, and I'll arm all of them when they join. I'll then spend the night and leave that next morning with the villagers in tow.

After waking up the next morning, struggling to fall asleep the night before, but then eventually succumbing to the peace, I take my villagers and head out towards the nearest major city to gather some information, possibly about the Picts, but just any information about potential quests and such.

as you head to the next town, but in between you pass by a thin wooded area on the "road", a small group (about 5) Unrights and rogue Villeins rush towards you, stopping you

You are in a small Cait village, late in the day you see villagers running down the roads, screaming something about bandits, further past them you see men on horses galloping towards the village

Before making a decision on fight or flight, I take a moment to quickly scan the five enemies before me, making note of their weapons and armor. After acquiring this information I will act.
