Part 63: Playthrough 2.1 - Part 21
Fine, we'll do that.
You will need to draw up a naval strategy for our ships to carry out. You could choose to act as admiral and lead the fleet in person, but the danger to you would be very great. Unless you think your personal skills will make the difference, I would strongly advise against it.
No, there's too much to do here. I can't go to sea.
Do your best, and Nova will survive.
Going to the treasury this week will make Elodie's strongest emotion afraid, which would give a learning penalty to military skills. So that visit will have be postponed until next week.
You may now tour the Barracks on the weekends. Your skill in Strategy is now 50. You may not increase this skill until your other Military skills are 25 or higher.
Since strategy is capped, I'm going with the second place skill, logistics.
You have unlocked a new outfit!
Ships close in on each other, angling into range. The Shanjians have half again as many troops as you do. It doesn't look promising. The eventual outcome ... is not in your favor. The Novan ships are sunk or scattered, as the Shanjian forces press towards landfall. Many good soldiers were lost today, and Nova's troubles have not ended. Since you have failed to repel the invasion, the Shanjian fleet will soon land and their troops will begin to progress towards your capital city. Your remaining soldiers will hold them off as long as possible, of course, but the main strength of your military has been exhausted. Nova's future looks bleak.
Now that Elodie no longer has much of an army to speak of, she can visit the barracks!
You visit the royal treasury and check your available funds. You have five thousand, two hundred and twenty-six gold lassi and seventy-one silver tilassi.
Elodie now has the uniform, which increases all military skills by 10. Not that we would ever sacrifice the tux for it, right?
