The Caldoen Clans have marched across the western border and re-taken ownership of their long abandoned Brochs // Candir 29

“They’re in the Tower!” Weez yells shrilly. You can see why he is being so hysterical now that the Calds have so decisively stolen from him his one source of shelter, income, safety.
“They have.” You reply, “The lads did not give up much a fight.”
The irony is palpable. Paid handfuls of silver to hold the Broch and stop anyone from taking it with force, those vaunted Mercenaries literally opened the door when the warband arrived and let the wester-men walk straight in.
“What are they doing down there on the path?” your employer hisses. Two of the Caldoen stoop for a moment over one of the kneeling prisoners. There is a savage motion left to right, then with a gentle push a newly created corpse falls over the edge of the cliff and down to the rocks below.
“They’re killing them.” You observe, “And that’s why you do not surrender to savages. No sense of fairness in any of them.”
“Bastards!” Weez bellows. That blood vessel on his neck starts to pulse again. You feel hungry
“What are you going to do about it?” He demands.
“I’m going to leave your employ.” you reply, looking around the area for a decent route out of here with the least amount of trouble.
“What do you mean?”
“I’m not hanging around when all that wealthis gone. The place I’m supposed to be helping you develop for the Tyrant is now in the hands of those hairy-arsed loons.” you mutter, “I’m off.”
Weez seems to explode in a tirade of abuse. One phrase he uses settles it quite quickly for what you are to do next
“I’ll have you killed for this you cunt!!” He hisses halfway through
You step forwards and with three quick motions, similar to those being done by the Caldeon less than a mile away, you stab the horrible little man to death with the fine knife he gave you.
“No you won’t”
Someone at the Tower starts a fire, and as you step onto the Ilanthor road you whince at the first sounds of some poor buggers torture.
