We must stop Prince Hylas any way we can. Therefore, while attacking with one hand, we will offer peace with the other.
Hylas allows audiences with those who prove themselves worthy. Offer him the head of a goblin warlord, and he might listen to reason.
One goblin head? In battle, our squires decapitate these vermin until the forest runs red with goblin blood. This is nothing; a trifle. Yet, your ambition is worth some regard, I suppose. Rarely does anyone make it past our defenses. Instead of killing you, I shall listen to your proposal.
