Dark Deity: Royal Bluff

[Part of the Cursed story line]

A trio of bandit hunting ladies arrive as the squad is cleaning up, and soon after an evil looking mage also arrives who asks if they found a particular gem in the bandit's possession. Garrick lies that they haven't so the evil mage, who turns out to be a necromancer, resurrects all the bandits and leaves - calling it a day. LOL. The "bandit hunters" Sara (mage), Samara (guardian) and Brooke (rogue) help clear out the undead bandits (who seem to be just bandits with white powdery make up) and reveal they too are after the gem but instead of taking it decide to leave Brooke with the squad to help defend it while the other two go off to see if they can find out more about the necromancer.

King Varic isn't pleased by the tardiness of their arrival at the capital but they earn his respect again by easily taking down a nearby camp of deserters led by the barbarianess Alexa, so he commands them to next march against the invading Aramoran army  whom they first encounter vandalizing an aqueduct and chase them off. It is here they gain the idiot knight Benji and the Aramoran archer deserter Caius, who doesn't want to slaughter innocents but is a-ok to slaughter his own people. At Redhill the team easily defeats the Aramoran invaders are captured by the Aramoran cavalry (via cutscene) only to be rescued by Sara and Samara, actual Aramor royalty, who bluff their way to getting the squad to safety.

How!? The town was cleared of enemies! Defeat by cut scene sucks.
