The Duke's tent is full of lieutenants and assistants. They seem to be discussing some sort of battle logistics.
The Duke sees Hyne and smiles. "Welcome old friend!" The Duke is younger than Hyne, and has a handsome face. He is wearing light field armor, and the only thing that differentiates his uniform from that of his subordinates is the ornate metal pauldron on his right shoulder.
Duke Borgan thinks of you as a friend-- decide for yourself if you feel the same way about him
"Everybody out! I need to have a talk with my friend!"
Assistants gather up equipment lists and maps, and everyone exists the tent except for you, Borgen, and his mute bodyguard.
"I need a personal favor. I need a wagon escorted back to the capital, and I need it to be done discreetly."
