Getting the Drop on the Sentries

November 16th, afternoon in the year 670 by Kingdom reckoning

You sneak quietly as you can around the edge of the forest to execute your pincer maneuver.

Dolgi's group heads toward the river. There is a tense moment as each of you crosses the path but you've moved far enough down that you aren't in any danger. The forest gets thicker on the other side of the path and you pick your way carefully. Sometimes going on hands and knees to get through.

Draymun's group has an easier time. It's slow going but you are rewarded when you come into earshot of the sentries and find that they are discussing tonight's dinner and wondering whether the cook will again serve them sheep's tongue.
