Hmmm. I'm not sure what to do, now. You see, I've run into a small problem. Virgil and I need to cross a bridge to get to another city to continue our quest. However, a group of bandits has blocked the bridge and is demanding a rather extravagant toll that I simply can't afford.
I had suggested that there may be a way to circumvent the fee but they are already aware that we've done some work for the local constabulary, so they refuse to give us any other option than to pay or fight. And, fighting is out of the question. These thugs are simply too strong for me and Virgil's meager healing spells can't keep up with the damage they do. Even having healing potions to supplement us ends in a rather ignominious defeat as we are knocked down and kicked to death.
So, going to Tarant is out of the question. I wonder if we can reach Dernholm without crossing that bridge?
