Upon hearing your request for all to show their faces the hooded figure leans to the Duke and says something you can not here. The Duke waves his hand at the hooded figure. The hooded figure bows to the Duke and walks out of the room.
The Duke looks at you and says "It is most unfortunate that some farmers have lost their lives. My hands are tied for now and I can not send more troops out that I currently have. I know there is a serious problem with the Orcs to the north and west of this Keep. I have petitioned the King but I have not received an answer as of yet. I am recruiting more swords in the hopes of taking a more direct action to the current problems."
As you requested for every one to show their faces you saw a very pronounced reaction from the hooded figure, the Duke and the man. The lady seemed not to notice. You also get the hint that there is more to the story than the Duke is letting on.
