Resistance is fierce but largely ineffectual. You'd guess that no one here was expecting a horse and rider to come rushing down these streets, spear whirling. Cavalry are not common on the crowded streets here, and as you knock down several red-armoured soldiers, most of the rest turn their attention to you as well. Teodor's group takes full advantage of the distraction to move forward. You've cleared the glut of combatants they were struggling with, and they're now proceeding at a brisk pace towards the army base. The Central Army's patrols are keeping the route to the base as clear as they can, and now they seem to be past the worst of it. You could either choose to keep on with a merry rampage around here, to try and circle around and ride back, or follow along with Teodor and his escort and try to serve as a guard.
