    Right when you arrive to Windspear Hills you will be confronted by a bunch of enemies (Ogres, wyvern etc.). When you slay them it will turn out that they were actually paladins and that you are in a lot of booboo. This information you will learn from Garren Windspear who arrives right after the fight is over (how convenient... couldn't he warn about this before ?). Garren will say that the Order of the Radiant Heart will not let this matter rest idly. One thing he can do is to hide you for the time being while you find out what happened and why it happened.

Can you NOT slay them by going invisible or something?

Windspear Cabin (AR1204)

    When you come here, Garren Windspear will try to explain the predicament that you are in. He'll say that he once was the lord of these lands and that they were cruelly taken from him by Lord Jierdan Firkraag, the same one that hired you to come here. It seems that you have been cruelly tricked and that Lord Firkraag is trying to discredit you. Garren will reveal that Firkraag is the least of your worries and that you should be more concerned with the Most Noble Order of the Radiant Heart as it would seek your death for killing its paladins. Although Garren would try to persuade the Order members to be lenient in your case. Saying that, Garren leaves to communicate with the members of the Order.
    After Garren departs, his daughter Iltha will speak to you and ask you to deal with Firkraag. At this point a runner by the name Jum will come in saying that the bandits are heading here.
    The bandits will come in and take Garren's child hostage. during the pre-battle conversation you will learn that they were sent in by the Lord Firkraag. Apparently Firkraag wanted to set you up for the disappearance of Garren's child. Clever bastard. Never fear, dispose of the bandits and then you'll deal with Frikraag himself.

    What if you agree to help him immediately (solely him or for the cause of the two of you)  ?

    After you have talked with Garren, the runner who warned about the bandits, Jum, will come up to talk to you. He'll say that the bandits have left him a message. It is Firkraag's Challenge. Apparently Lord Firkraag has tired of simply destroying your honor and wants to give you a chance to restore it. You are to come up Northeast and meet him, the it will be decided who is the better of the two.
    Well you should head out and meet this challenge head on, however, be prepared ! Be very prepared ! Lord Firkaag is not what he seems to be.
