Bandits are attacking refugees along the King’s Highway east of the crossroads.
The map will be marked with locations for three groups of enemies, which need to be found and dispensed with to complete this quest. The groups consist of Outlaws and Outlaw Archers; the last group also has an Outlaw Enforcer.
At the location of the second bandit group, two letters can be found. They are not codex and are therefore displayed in the Gallery below. They are:
- An Unsigned Letter on a Bandit Body – Set of orders
- Letter on a Bandit in the Hinterlands – Begins the side quest The Mercenary Fortress
Once all bandits have been eliminated, the quest completes.
After dealing with the last group, the Inquisitor can claim a nearby camp as part of Holding the Hinterlands. For extra XP, locate the codex entry: An Unsigned Letter in the Hinterlands in the camp site, which explains why this area was overrun with "fake bandits."
After completing the quest speak to Belette again, and she will mention that Corporal Vale will be glad to hear of the news. Upon speaking to her, if recruited, Cole approves, even if not in the party.
