That would be A Return to Court. Captain Emery is high level. But it's probably better to reach benevolent 2 or cruel 2 and convince her to stand down. Gives you a much better option later in the game Gaining this should be easy to do, especially benevolent. I'd do it as soon as possible so you can complete A return to Court. Gives some nice bonusses to your keep.
Rule of thumb is: if enemies are too strong then you are too low level. Earlier incarnations of games like this were quite similar. I also think people are kind of touchy when the game ramps up its difficulty in certain parts. Like the game is pestering them. I don't remember people complaining about BG when it came out or even afterwards saying things like: Hi, I'm level 1 and I'm fighting these enemies called ankhegs and they one shot me. Screw this! Well you know what I mean
