Benji turns to the woman with a handsome grin. "My dear lady, please don't worry about the little undead freak. He is one of my companions in touring this mighty city, but between you and me he's always been quite an oddball... if you'd like me to thrash him for your loveliness I'd do that with pleasure! Or I can give a little lecture with my crossbow to those wicked guards. But maybe you'd be interested in a little conversation first... tell me a little bit about yourself... you are a pretty miss, surely you are the important wife of some great and rich noble?"
I slowly walk with the lady in a direction where the guards won't hear. Once we're out of their hearing-range I whisper: "What do you know about the captured princess? Weaknesses in the tower? If you could help me with these questions, then I would be indebted."
OOC: You said "Realistically, you could explore anywhere on the map, go back to recent places, talk to people you didn't meet. It's your freedom." So where else is it possible to explore on the map?
"I don't know about the tower. And no, I'm not noble, I was raised from a poor family... I'll be indebted to you if you teach those guards a lesson, my valiant knight."
"You know what, maybe I could help you get into the tower. I have friends at the tavern who could help."
You could always explore the forest maybe? I'm sure you could find some raw material there.
