Bandits are attacking refugees along the King’s Highway east of the Crossroads.
The map will be marked with locations for three groups of Outlaws, which need to be found and dispatched to complete the quest. The groups consist of Outlaws and Outlaw Archers; the last group will also have an Outlaw Enforcer.
After confronting the second bandit group, two letters can be found:
- An Unsigned Letter on a Bandit Body - acquired from a letter found on one of the Outlaws.
- Letter on a Bandit in the Hinterlands - found laying on a bed rest. Reading the orders initiates the side quest The Mercenary Fortress.
Proceed to the third confrontation point and eliminate all the Outlaws to complete the quest.
After dealing with the last group, the Inquisitor can claim a nearby camp as part of the side quest Holding the Hinterlands. For extra XP, locate the codex entry: An Unsigned Letter in the Hinterlands at the Inquisition camp. The entry details why this particular area was overrun with "fake bandits."
After completing the quest return to Belette, and she will mention that Corporal Vale will be glad to hear of the news.
