During the dinner feast Denga heard movement outside the village wall. He went to investigate and discovered a Legionnaire (highway patrol military from Platonia) up a tree and spying on the village. Denga tried to sneak around to the far side but was noticed. The Legionnaire awkwardly explained that he was trying to assess the siege situation. Denga informed him the siege was over and the goblins vanquished. The Legionnaire managed to reach his mount and bolt for his party that wasn’t far away. He returned with 20 Legionnaires all mounted. After finding the companion’s answers unsatisfactory, the Lieutenant takes the party into custody to be brought back to Fort. The Dwarf declares that the Legion has no control over him and the Legion allows him to go free.
Denga escapes headed towards Kayde with 5 Legionaires (including the scout he injured) in pursuit. Denga climbs a tree to avoid notice, but when the Legionnaires approach his vicinity and spot him, he jumps down the tree and tears off again, quickly outpacing them with fleet Elven feet.
While this is happening the Legion take control of the village and begin their investigation of siege. And of the Elf that shot their scout.
