Captain Puhza felt a bit awkward on the march back to Wintermute, after all his route home was also being used by Borial Itash’s invasion army. He knew that the opinion about the Itashi Alliance was currently mixed, only a couple of nations in the Alliance viewed Wintermute favorably and even some of those only tolerated them. Few in Wintermute truly believed that Borial would like them more then anyone else, however the promise of power and perhaps even the domination of Korpu was tempting. This would require betraying the nations that weren’t hostile to Wintermute which considering the general view of Undead would only cement people’s views of Wintermute being evil.
Captain Puhza was told to get more information about Borial Itash so he went over to Borial’s attendants. "Greetings, I am Captain Puhza of Wintermute as you are aware. I understand he has extended an offer to the government of Wintermute to either declare neutrality or to join his invasion of the Northern Kingdoms. I would like to discuss the pros and cons of his offer with him as many in Wintermute are conflicted by this offer. Perhaps we could help set their minds at ease with further discussion?
