Defending the Village
Approaching the village outskirts, the party begins to hear distant shouts and screams. Around the next bend, black smoke rises from a town square under siege. Without help, the town will fall.
- While focus is on the townsquare, a small division of the raiding party is liberating their comrades from the town jail
- The town is run by a corrupt lord and the raiding party is actually townsfolk rising up against him
- The party, being of evil alignment, join the raiders by flanking the townsfolk and ensuring victory
- The party could hide and wait to see the natural outcome of the battle and then decide what to do
