This is another in the series of "wanted" posters that can be found within a campaign setting.
-If the military is recruiting groups of civilian adventurers to do some scouting, it can only mean a couple of things. One is that they deem it too dangerous for "regular" scouts, two that they may not want to be associated with the scouting missions and want plausible deniability. Either way, these could be some exciting scouting missions into enemy territory, perhaps for a potential attack into another country or to head off an invasion. Will the military allow the group to live after their usefulness is done and they have gained some knowledge of what is going on? Only the DM can decide that.
