Patrician III Wiki
Escort is a mission that can frequently be found in the Tavern's Side Room.

A fugitive offers you gold to escort him to a nearby city as he needs to escape some pirates.

During the journey, the ship carrying the fugitive will be attacked by a pirate ship. The more gold the fugitive offers, the larger the attacking pirate ship will be.

You can sink or capture the ship if you are able to. If you flee from combat, the pirate ship will remain on the map.

This mission is similar to the Fugitive mission.
