The Captain: Three of you with me.
The Captain: The rest of you... deal with this.
Pōk: [(Here comes) the humans and their leader!]

“Two Fronts” In military campaigns, one thing they always suggest is to fight one front battles. The last thing you want to do is to contend with two fronts (or three, or four, etc). You end up splitting your forces and, therefore, the odds of you winning either front is drastically decreased. One of the biggest examples sited for this is France during the Napoleonic Wars, and Germany fell into this trap in both World Wars. Jorge Santayana had said “those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. Even if the raiders live in the same world as Santayana, they appear to predate him. And sometimes you just can’t avoid it. Maybe it would have been better to focus on The Party of Adventurers™ first and then go after the gobos?

What am I saying? This isn’t Bandit Quarterly. This is Gobo Gazette! These goblins might not be the best team in the league but they are our home team. They are the ones to root, root, root for! And right now they have four bandits coming for them. Seems like Pōk was a little preoccupied with the rest of the gobos getting up the stairs than with the approaching cutthroats. No time for words! Somebody grab that gobo and go!
