“ Cyprus has many men who have no fear of the law. Those men make it very difficult for men like me to do their jobs. A simple trader is just a walking bag of gold out in the wilds!
A band of renegades have banded under a disgraced General, and they are robbing merchant caravans foolish enough to cross their path. If this continues, Kyrenia will have neither the gold nor the goods it needs to survive.
I will use my funds to supply you with whatever mercenaries I can find. Defeat the renegades! ”
