At Schub Clearing out or subduing the organized banditry saves me coin, eventually building and protecting roads and allowing trade routes makes me coin. I don't need a share of what you take I just need you to do what adventurers do.
I'll be sending you with 2 wagons, a pair of draft horses for each, enough food for a month of exploration, map making supplies and you may each take either a weapon or piece of armor from my armory (all masterwork one item.)
At Evan This is your team, I imagine you'll fight all together at times and on others split to cover ground faster. You're a diverse group with very different backgrounds but a common cause.
The other teams are chartering and exploring different territory. Two of the groups go with veritable armies and they will face some very different challenges then you. If you all succeed they will be your neighbors.
Your job in part is to map the area. You may search my library for an old map but if you find one it will be flawed at best. I not not where the bandits make camp but I do know that there's a mix of quality.
The better ones wear a trinket around there necks marking them as the Stag Lord's. I also know that when he takes the field the men he brings are deadly and capable.
I'd take the field against him myself if politics did not tie my hands.
