We should not bring the fight down on the people of the City. We should be their shield. Not use them for ours. If Tallstag and the the rest of the devil worshipers are removed from the Militia tower and Lady Prize or some other respectable Captain could be installed, would the Order move out of the South West District? Restoring the citizenry to civil control under the crown. We would either bring the fight to a designated battlefield or if the enemy is cowardly and unwilling to face us, disperse and fight evil where we find it. Either way, neither side returns to take Arabel, it is left in the good hands of a militia we agree to before hand.
Is this something you would consider?
