Need More Info Village doesn't join when doing Extortion by Deserters quest?

No, I didn't use any mods.


Just started 1.7.0 game a couple days ago. First time I did Extortion by Deserters quest I fought the Deserters alone with my party. The village didn't join in. I lost because I expected about 25 more fighters on my side (even if they are weak, it helps overwhelm the enemy). Since I haven't played in a couple months I assumed they had changed the quest to where you are now on your own. Kind of a shame because it used to be one of my favorites. So it took a while until I tried the quest again, this time with enough troops I felt I could beat them on my own, but the next time I tried it I noticed the town leader specifically stated that they would join us in fighting the deserters. The battle started and, yes, the town militia joined us in the battle.

Not sure if it was a bug that occurs the first time you do the quest in the game or whether it was a bug that just occurs every now and then. Would appreciate it if other players could add their input.

Hello though it is not my thread i just run into this. So, I saved directly before the battle maybe it helps. I gonna Upload the save. I hope it helps. In my case all my Quests where without the village militia so i was thinking it is an intended design choice. You will see in my save file that the villagers appear outside the Village before the fight start.

I uploaded the savefile


Thanks, Gamor. My only save was from days after I had first done the quest without militia & all future ones had militia, so I figured the save wouldn't do much for them.
