    274 KB Song of Fire and Ice P8 Lone Maester !WEQrEleOpo 10/13/11(Thu)18:59 No.16616021  
    last time on song of fire and ice quest we found some mercenaries and fought them, they proved to be tougher then the bandits but that wasnt a problem for the men of Strongcock, they were sent by a knight that goes by the name William Color .

    Maester Myrwin heard of our plight and has came to document and oversee Calum.

    Also a drawfriend fixed up our face, it looks nicer

    Oh great,

    I managed to be here when the thread is going on.

    One thing had been bothering me while I read the archives.
    We didn't do anything with the bandits we captured in the first raid, right?
    We still have them locked up in dungeon? How many are there.

    Perhaps we should give them a second chance as people, release them and recruit them into our small army or give them honest work?

    Our forces are weakened and we need more men lest we invite further aggression against our lands.

    Also we should send our remaining rangers into the forests around Criin Castle to intercept their mail by shooting the ravens.

    Seriously, it is a good investment. We will use them to root out any bandits and defend ourself against the force which will come at the end of the year.
    That way we wont lose our precious tax-payers.
