Negotiations over the fate of Vergoldeten

Outside the town of Vergoldeten, Landgraviate of Ober-Schweinsberg

Every night, the town of Vergoldeten can see the flames of campfires to the north and south of their town, with the army of Hesse-Engelburg encamped outside the northern gate, and the army of Prince Arnold encamped outside their southern gate.

In the town hall, the leaders of the city look on and occasionally contribute as Brigadier Färberböck of Arnold's Black Brigade meets with Generalmajor Count Manfred von Waffenschmidt of Hesse-Engelburg and his three Brigadiers. Couriers and pages come and go from the building, carrying messages from the negotiators to their respective sovereigns. Hussars of both sides roam the countryside, watching for any further attacks from the defeated Bad Nachtschwein or Prince Asgar. Rumors abound, but no concrete information has surfaced as to what the likely result of the negotiation is.
