"It's not like we betrayed them." said Edwin.
"Well, we kinda did. We declared them neutral." noted Slayn.
"And we still have them as neutral. All our guards are instructed to allow them through." said Edwin
"We don't have any guards set. Anyone can go through the lands we occupy." objected Neera.
"It's not the point." said Edwin.
"So what is the point then?" asked Neera.
"The point is that anyone who cannot comprehend military strategy should not lead men to occupy and tax lands that are adjacent to the town we occupy because a, that land is undefendable and b, we might get gready seeing the silver they collect as tax and might persuade their men to part with their silver." replied Edwin.
"We killed those men and took the silver." said Neera.
"Because said men could not be persuaded to part with their silver." explained Edwin.
"Then we pillaged the area." continued Neera.
"Because the amount of silver those guards had was rather small and we needed more." replied Edwin.
"Being in need of silver doesn't justify the slaughter of troops belonging to a neutral organisation."
"You'd prefer we'd starve to death?" asked Edwin?
"No. But there should be another way." said Neera.
"Very well then. We'll officially declare war on The Big Bad (23) Billy Bob and order our troops to attack them on sight in the future." said Edwin.
"Don't you think we are late with the war declaration boss?" asked FlameBeard. 
"OK. Then we won't declare war but we'll still attack on sight. I'll instruct the troops." said Edwin cheerfully, rose from the table and walked out of the room.
"He's always getting his way." grumbled Neera.
"He's the boss." said Slayn and FlameBeard in unison and they shrugged.

The leader of the forces for the second attempt on the village came back. "It appears we have a problem. The local guards have reinforced, far greater than we believed a village could support. Find out why."

The scouts consulted with the wizard, who scried and divined omens until he found the answer. Apparently, selling all the faction's surplus livestock in the village for cash had nudged it over from being a village into a town, and now they were recruiting 8 extra guard a turn, and the guards had mysteriously developed an extra level of training.

It was not really going well for the Children of the Four Winds.

Opponents had killed all workers in eastern regions during last months. So strategically it was loss of good production regions. However, orcs talked it up, since they had killed now already several opponents.
Now I arranged some sword production and these were all rage. Orcs geared up for more fight. But those centaurs will probably kill more of our workers than those opponents.

If you have your leaders stay in anything smaller than a town by the end of year one you are a fool.
If you have your leaders to stay at a gate without a skilled observer to protect them you are a double fool.
If said gate is outside a settlement that is within one month walking distance you are a triple fool.

Fools don't last long in this world.
