"So, recap." Jan raised her voice, "Hinterland goblin tribes are united, under some sway or promise or whatever by some 'longshanks' to raid our beloved town." The Cheliax woman touched the marked map of the town unrolled in front of all them.
"The goblins launched three separate waves. Were the attacks by different tribes or are they mixed together on each wave? That bears a bit of looking, just to see how well-meshed are the goblins and if what looked like well-planned tactics weren't just tribes acting separately. But at the same time, the goblins were all a diversion. Supposedly. I'm not going to rule out a bloodbath as one of the goals yet, without proper proof of otherwise. Call me paranoid." She shrugged as she pointed the option out to the others.
"But, the grave of the Father Tobyn was desecrated... Which according to the good Sheriff there was the priest who had died in the fire five years ago, in the same temple that the goblins were going to burn down. Coincidence? Or was it ordered by those 'longshanks'? I'm not going to rule out the temple as a goal either, just because of the grave-robbing seems too suspicious to be much of a coincidence."
"Three avenues of investigation seem to open itself: the wagon and the guards at the gate, they are close at hand if we want to take a look; the grave-robbing and the fire five years ago, a bit harder to look for, since the fire happened in the past, AND" Jan made a pointed look at Aegon, "we aren't even sure the body had been taken outside of town, just that there are tracks leading out; and then there is the goblins themselves, which is a dangerous option, but an option nonetheless. At least, that's the way I see it. Any constructive criticism to add?" She glanced around the room.
"I, for one, would rather look into the matter of the wagon insertion and the gate guards first. They are in town. And those are holes that needed to be plug first. If some goblins actually ended up attacking again while we are out there, and there are still 'longshanks' collaborators inside the town walls, can you imagine the damage? Besides," She added another reasoning, "It has been a day and a night since the grave has been robbed. We had funerals, ruining the tracks inside the cemetery. We had goblins running out of the gates every which way, ruining the tracks leading out. Are you that sure of your tracking skills?"
