In the Keep on the Borderlands, why don't the soldiers on the keep march on the caves? Instead of just sending tiny squads (the PCs and their henches) there?
My PCs convinced the captain of the watch that this would be a good idea and he got up and went to the bailiff to propose it. Now I'm not really sure what will happen.
A. The bailiff will say "That's stupid, because X" and punish the captain of the watch for being stupid, altering the power structure of the keep.
B. The bailiff will say "Ok, we'll do it", do it, and then the outcome will be Y.
Either of these two will have a lasting consequence on the keep, which is good because the players dumped a lot of drama points (Hillfolk on the borderlands???) on this (they were talking with the captain of the watch in the inn). But A or B? And what is X, or Y?
