  • The survivor believes that the other refugees will lay down their arms if they see firsthand that they cannot stand against veteran warriors. To that end, he asks you to seek them out in the caves south of Lost Hope and challenge their leaders, twin sellswords, to combat and defeat them as all watch.
  • Though you came to make an example of the twins, the refugees refuse to stand aside. Only after you subdue five of their number do the sellswords appear. Fortunately, their defeat seems to have had the desired effect. Speak with the desperate refugee, and confirm that he has taken your lesson to heart.
  • The refugee falls to his knees in despair, his will to fight broken. Inform the survivor in Lost Hope of all that has transpired.
  • Though saddened to learn that his comrades forced your hand, the survivor is grateful for your intervention. He is, however, concerned that the merchant will attempt to recruit more desperate refugees, perpetuating the bloodshed. Who is this shadowy figure intent on sowing dissent? The plot thickens...

The other refugees are hiding in the caves south of Lost Hope, but to approach them would be fruitless. They would sooner call us agents of the sultanate and try to kill us than listen to reason. Why, the twins might even deign to do the deed themselves.

A pox on all bloody sellswords! They were supposed to train us to fight, but the ones he sent with us vanished during the struggle.


Oh, if only we had never listened to that merchant's ridiculous claims! He said our cause was righteous, that the gods would never suffer us to be defeated─


Though, if they were forced to confront reality... That's it! Challenge the twins to combat and show my brethren that their strongest warriors are no match for one man! Mayhap then they will agree to lay down their arms and renounce this plot!
Hurt the twins if you must, but pray do your utmost not to harm the others.
Seven hells, they've found us! Everyone, grab yer gear and make for the rendezvous point!

...So that's yer game, is it? Ahahaha! Sorry to disappoint ye, lad, but we're more than willin' to kill ye ourselves!


Ye beat 'em like it was nothin'! Thal almighty, what are we gonna do now...?


We yield, all right!? We yield! That's what ye wanted, ain't it!? So go away and leave us be!
You've returned! Did you find my brethren? What of the twins? What happened!?

I see... Well...you had no choice. Better that a handful of them take a beating from you than the lot get butchered by the Flames.


Tell me, what did the merchant have to say when it was over?


Huh? But where else would he be? Unless... Unless he went to Stonesthrow to recruit others?
Help me, dammit!

You should never have come here!


W-We can take him!


I c-can't do this alone!
Do yer worst!

<huff> <puff>


You won't stop us!

You can't stop us!
Ho, a challenge!

It's been too long!


Meddlesome wretch!


Bastard!
Enough!
No, NO!
