Bestowal dialogue

'Have you seen the Variags? Those brutish, mask-wearing men from the east seem to have their own code of laws. How they manage to be both more barbaric and more civilized than the Easterlings is beyond me. I hope to stand against them, but I feel a distraction may be in order. The Variags have set up a blockade on the road, just to the east of this encampment. I suspect if we were to mobilize now, the Variags would be alerted to our presence. I am hoping that you are up for the challenge of creating a diversion for us.'
