I hate to be abrupt, but─can you help me?
Thank y─ Oh goodness, it's you! The one who turned the tide at Holminster Switch! Well, I feel doubly bad about this now, but I have little choice. I need any help that I can get.
Thanks to the eaters, everything not in ruins is in disarray, and I'm working to determine what materiel we have, but that requires sifting through it all! And if I don't know what we need it will be fruitless, as I won't be able to order, and─
Ahem. In short, I need you to meet me at the Northern Staging Point. Please.
We'll be assessing the situation out here. Though it may save time if you were to first tell me what destruction you personally witnessed?
Many structures burned or otherwise damaged in the fighting... Yes, I thought as much. I may look into procuring tents so that the laborers come to assist in the reconstruction need not journey back and forth each day─that ought to save time.
I'd be curious to know whether anything out here actually has survived. Might I ask you to survey the northern area and tell me if you find any materiel or other supplies that might still be fit for use?
Thank you. Please meet me here when you've finished.
Finished your inspection, have you? What did you find?
Oh, shepherds around here use this sort of cane. It must belong to one of the residents. Or former residents, now, I suppose...
We can return it to them, though I imagine they'd rather have their land and livestock back. What else was there?
Good to hear that I shouldn't need to procure any fresh tents. The weapons are less immediately useful, though I will of course have them collected. It seems that I'll primarily need to order tools, as there were none to be found in the areas I checked, either.
I very much appreciate your help─this has gone much more swiftly for your presence. Would you accept a small reward? I have a bit of coin stored for just such an occasion back at the fort.
And now the real work begins. Fighting off the sin eaters was no small feat, but the task of rebuilding seems almost more daunting.
Nothing for it but to grit our teeth and get to it, however. For the sake of everyone in Lakeland.
