Duke Konrad's advance scouts have had a number of skirmishes a few leagues from Flety. The woods are fairly filled with Loyalist militias and mysliwi sniping and fouling the roads with all manner of traps and diabolical horse-maiming devices.
This has brought the 'Duke' to a standstill until enough of the cannon has caught up and a fighting spearhead can be formed.
The slow movement and relative location of the Konrad Korpus now makes the work of Duke Czeslaw ewa Jerzy easier, yet also hurried. The newly formed troops must now stand while the moving cavalry arm gets to the battle site.
