At this particular point in time I doubt there’s any light show which could get the Drachmans to try to get into Briggs, and a good thing for them, since they’d probably get in just in time for the garrison to wake up.
But there’s a long border with Drachma, mostly pretty quiet if all the tension is at Briggs – although why all the tension would be at Briggs I’m not sure. I’d speculate about it being the most passable place, but that’s ridiculous. Unless there’s a huge mountain range along the entire northwest border? I’ll have to check the map again.
But accepting that the border is mostly quiet, and in an incredibly unnatural shape, and between two aggressive countries… Maybe there are places in the backwoods where people on either side of the border feel they have more in common with each other than with their governments, culturally speaking. Maybe there are farms or even villages that don’t quite take the border as seriously as they’re supposed to take it, and hop over to help with a barn-raising or get the planting done.
…This scenario isn’t turning out as funny as the traumatized Aerugan onlookers, since these witnesses will be panicking over their friends and family across the border. To cheer up, let’s imagine a more “civilized”, more hostile, but still not-actively-violent border crossing, where soldiers and customs officials glower at each other all day and make travelers’ lives miserable.
