Discipline is the backbone of any army. Everything must be written down, every order signed and archived in triplicate. This proved a boon to Geralt on one occasion, when he came across a document written in a soldier's hand. It was sparse and contained few details, but what it did divulge was intriguing, to say the least...

Journal Entry:

 15th day of observation (23rd of Birke)
Back in the camp. Brought in heaps of plunder, mostly armor and weapons, but this time a sealed chest, too. Towards dusk a man delivered rations of food. And drink.
16th day of observation (24th of Birke)
Messenger arrived in the camp before dawn. Caused quite a stir. They immediately organized a group to transport the chest. After dusk I'll try to track down where they carried it to.
17th day of observation (25th of Birke)
Didn't move the case that far away, just to the abandoned hut near the old mill. Set up a watch, so I wasn't able to get closer.
18th day of observation (26th of Birke)
Every man in the camp has been drinking since yesterday afternoon. If we attacked now, we'd obliterate them. Too bad the commander only sent one man (me) to this outpost. I'll try to sneak in tonight. If fortune smiles on me, perhaps one man will be enough.
Geralt followed the instructions mentioned in the notes and found the deserters' cache - and what a rich find it was!
