Reply To: Since when has "a few" meant two?

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.
