In the quest you have to hunt 3 gangs of sea raiders/forest bandits/etc (just wherever the quest takes you) near the town the quests tells you. Once you get there you see the exclamation point icon on which group of bandits you need to fight well if you have too many more troops than them and they surrender it doesn't progress the quest, the quest will still read "0/3". These bandits also lose troops over time. Like while I chase them they lose troops and once they hit zero they just kind of run around still and still do the surrender action even if i remove all my troops and it's just myself in my party. So the only way to progress the quest is to actually be able to fight them. Is there anyway to fix this to where even if they surrender you get progression for the quest? Also if they surrender, another party for the quest doesn't appear so you can't beat that quest step cause there are only two parties of bandits left when you still need 3. I did find out if another AI lord actually gets to fight them, regardless if they're at 0 troops, another party appears when that last one gets beaten. They spawn with 80 troops but lose troops over time. Trying to put all your troops away somewhere and finding the party of bandits is hard cause by the time you do that and even if you have a castle or town nearby to even do that, then they've already hit 0 troops again.
