Second-watcher Heathstraw: 'I am glad to see that you have returned, friend. We have made it here to The Prancing Pony in your absence and have been holding it, but I fear we won't last much longer. The brigands are coming at us with a vengeance which I cannot match. I am glad to have you by my side once more.'
Second-watcher Heathstraw says, "You will need a stronger ally for this fight. There are many ways soldiers can be trained and outfitted for battle."
Second-watcher Heathstraw says, "Archers, warriors, protectors, sages, bannermen and herbalists are all willing to answer your call."

Will Longverge: 'When you were taking the South-gate, you moved through and took the enemy's bastions, claiming them for your own. Here, we are defending The Prancing POny and the bastions we have claimed, while the enemy comes to us and attempts to take them for their own.'
Tom Redthistle: 'It is important to be sure that your soldier is properly trained for the role you wish him to fulfil. Make sure to pay attention to the other members of your fellowship, their abilities, and which soldiers they will be calling forth.'
