Intelligence flowed in from the observers and watchers employed by the courts and Elders claiming that the Sons of Khenochia were evacuating Khenochia in three companies. The report was that their spies had learned of the arrival of my self with my two-thousand men to Delarad, and the Sons of Khenochia, knowing that they stood little chance of defense against our force, began to plan their escape. The King, surrounded with a moderate company of soldiers and influential men (likely the heads of the lower houses) had left first. A second group composed mostly of the servants and soldiers of the lower houses, along with general followers, had been sent out next. And finally there was the third group, which had yet to evacuate the city, which was, sources claimed, made up of lesser soldiers (recently enlisted, likely) as well as the common civilians and peasant which had supported the rebellion. They would be leaving as soon as proper arrangements and provisions could be made. The report stated further that the general path of evacuation was to the south - the first group to the south-east, and the second towards south-west, likely to pass through the ruins of Keh'Arnis. In any case, we had little time, as the companies would quickly reach the valleys and, by extension, Maikin territory, where pursuit would be much less practical.

My first order of business was to send messengers to the battle front on the west of Mulinik, to Haig and to Ibrahim, to inform them of the evacuation and request (command) that they send out captains and forces to head off the first two groups, lest they reach Maikin territory.
