While exploring Saraband you'll meet two characters, Hayward and Garosh, who will be important to the storyline later on so don't fret trying to get them to join you at this stage. Go through the gates at the north end of the Republic district to the central district. On top of the tavern you can talk to Arthur, the magic knight. He asks you a question, answer yes to it and he will join Medion's force in Scenario 2 if Medion talks to him as well. Now use the opposite gates in the central district to enter the Imperial district leading to an encounter with some Imperial troops. As the scene gets ugly, Prince Medion, Campbell, and Grantack show up to save the day. Once this sequence has finished, go back the way you came to come to the first battle...
Saraband Street Battle
Hide your force behind the broad side of the church to lure two of the monks out, then pounce on them in your next turn. The rest of the monks should be no problem but keep HP levels high so they don't surprise you.
End of Battle
Once the battle has been won head back to the Republic camp and you will encounter Benetram kidnapping Domaric with a group of masked monks. Once the scene is finished enter the Republic building again.
With the Empire forces certain to retaliate after the news of Domaric's kidnapping, Benetram and the rest of the Republic's forces must escape Saraband. Once Benetram joins with Synbios' battalion head back to the central district and across the bridge opposite the fountain. Another battle awaits you...
