Part 62: Playthrough 2.1 - Part 20
The tournament goes on without you. After the tournament, a minor tragedy is revealed. One of the stewards apparently had an incredible sweet tooth and dared to steal a piece of your recently-received chocolates. He had a sweet tooth... the chocolates were poisoned. When you ask questions, it turns out that the merchant house which supposedly sent you this present never existed.
Someone has tried to kill you... but you don't know who.
My lady, your father wishes to speak with you. He says it's urgent.
Fine, I'm coming.
You find your father standing over a map of the coastline, his face grave.
Ships have been sighted on approach from Shanjia. Not tradeships - this is a warfleet.
Within a week they will be in Novan waters. Within two they could reach the capital.
Then we will fight to defend ourselves.
You can try to use the treasury funds to hire additional soldiers, but it may be difficult on short notice.
After this, should we lead the navy ourselves? And what classes should we take?
