I have given further direction to fortify the camp. An extra watch has been placed in rotation.
It has been brought to my attention that a lot of things are coming up missing.
There have likely been thieves slipping through our watch. This needs to stop.
After this morning, I have had enough.
It is starting to make sense now.
Last week, a thin man with a balding head and nondescript clothing came to camp.
He did not have anything with him other than a long shepherds crook.
The Man with the Shepherds Crook is welcome here. It was so calm when he came by.
He had words of wisdom I did not fully comprehend. He asked about an old stone building that used to be a place of worship and offered to purchase it. I informed him that at this point, he could utilize the structure.
I have been directed and encouraged to develop this area economically using my own judgement. I believe he will be a fine addition to Northwich.
When we met, the Man with a Shepherds Crook spoke of thieves.
He said they go around attacking the weak. They do not directly attack.
I did not pay much attention until it faced it. These thieves thought that I was weak.
I was surprised when he told me to send armed men out to completely destroy the thieves on sight. After this morning, I understand the intense hatred he has for the thieves.
He believes an example needs to be made and I agree with him. I will listen to the wisdom of this man. I have already sent several scouts to look around. So far, not much has been seen other than a few tracks.
I will leave the kettle of coffee out and I have added logs to the fire.
I am off to work with the scouts. I want to help locate these brigands and thieves and stop this.
