    Can’t understand your complains about deliveries. Haven’t you tried to avoid roads? That’s the first thing I tried with this ambush\event system and it works great. Yes you spend more time traveling but avoid most problems in early game, build up finances take a batter gear(well better then farm tools), start attacking graveyards to build up xp, and your company is good to go. If you can’t handle a mission yet, just don’t take combat missions…

    ambush of 18 mercenaries for sending or 18 bounty hunters – is a scripting event that occurs regardless of on what you are trying to bypass the woods
    I conducted an experiment – having been instructed in the delivery of parcels from one port city to another – I immediately boarded a ship and sailed to – I got ambushed right in town from 1 sec to make quest

    they does happen when you nearing the cities and when you’re leaving too, but you have a better chance that you won’t get them. I’ve been experimenting with deliveries for a while and “Along the road” have a MUCH higher chances too happen when you are really along the road. I did it even with the same mission through a save game. Tried road at first – got myself kicked badly – loaded – marched through forests and mountains and got to dest safely without any combat including the event one…

    EDIT: Oh, and yeah there is delivery event that could happen no matter where you are going, one with the cursed box, that spawns ghosts and skeletons and they could be deadly on the start w\o fear immune. But it happens pretty rarely through two ~300 Days companies I seen it twice or so and I was building reps so I did every mission they threw at me at the time.

    This must be bad luck? I have ran over 10+ delivers in my 2 games, both on challenging. Haven’t had that even happen once.

    The only time I’ve had a fight happen from script, is after killing a bandit leader and a another mercenary group tries to take his head.

    I had it happen 3 or 4 times. All of deadly.
    Semi Ironman so my band was poor low level and under armed.
    I just run from them. Retreat from battle.
    Remember fellow mercenaries that there are situation when better run like little bitch than get killed like a fool.

    No, they’re exactly that, the enemies with titles ‘Mercenary’ or ‘Bounty Hunter’. They appear exclusively during certain contracts to oppose you, extort or take by force what you are carrying.

    Here is one save during such contract. Go to the destination and you’ll see them sooner or later, then refuse to comply to face them.

    When you get a delivery quest, there is a chance that some mercenaries will attack you to get the super secret artefact you are hauling…
    Also, when you happen to slay a bandit leader, you take his head to get a bounty, but you could get ambushed by bounty hunters…
    They are pretty rare (only happened to me one time for each), but they are not super strong… They have stuff like boar spears and falchions and usually have mail shirt-level armor…

    Right, got it, thanks for the save game!

    So basically they are mostly like Bandit Raiders, but with slightly better helmets and some of them have 2handed swords.

    it is not bad luck – it’s famous over 6000

    Also sometimes they have Swordmaster or Hedge Knight with them.
    And they are nasty bastards.
