    Whenever I see “a few bandit leaders” in a camp, I get excited and think there’ll be three of them, but instead there are always just two of them …

    Only one is the leader, the other is just a personal bodyguard.

    That’s not what I was getting at. It’s not specific to bandits. I could be “a few direwolves” or “a few withered vampires” or “a few necromancers” or “a few” of anything else. “A few” means more than one, and usually more than two, but the term always indicates just two when used by the unseen scouts in this game. So maybe it should just say “a couple” instead? But I’d have thought that the use of an unspecific term, like “a few”, would indicate a varying range and not always just one exact number.

    I Think Your wrong here.

    Sometimes I get prompt that theres an extra “leader” visiting this compound

    Which would mean they are both Leaders. But one is bigger ” caliber”

    :P

    Btw what about adding a perk, that allows you to know exact number of every type of enemies? Sometimes i see “a few ork warriors” and ist critical is there 2 or 4 of them.
