"Thanks for helping me, sir. If it wouldn't be too much to ask, what is your name?"
"I, am Walhart." he says. He sounds intimidating simply when speaking his name. He looks down at you, seemingly expecting you to say your own.
"I'm Charlotte. I simply can't convey my gratitude without understating it, sir Walhart. But why are you here in the middle of these woods?" you ask, trying not to be rude to this man.
"Conquest? You mean you plan to conquer this area?"
"You think too small. My goal is to unite the world, all of it."
"But, wouldn't that lead to many deaths?" you ask, not really sure about what he's saying.
"What are the lives of today when their deaths will build an eternal peace? If many die today, no one will have to die tomorrow."
"You... You do have a point." you admit, as you can't really refute his argument. "But, why are you conquering without an army?" you add, referring to the fact that he was all alone here.
"My army is elsewhere. Our forces were split into equal halves of strength. Me, and my army."
You're quite surprised by what he says. It's not that you don't believe him, you're surprised because he seems to be right. Looking at the sheer amount of corpses of the slavers and the lack of as much as a scratch on Walhart seems like a convincing reason to believe what he says, no matter how impossible it sounds.
A.) Ask him where you are. You want to get to the nearest town to rest and think.
B.) Ask him to let you join his army. You realise that there's truth in his words, and you'd like to see his dream of a united world become a reality.
C.) You ask him where he and his army are headed.
