Part 71: Weeks 7 - 9
Elodie's run in with Alice unfolds in the exact same way as the first playthrough.
You overwhelm the guards with facts and figures, explaining that you need treasury access to adjust the royal budget, which may affect their pay packets as well as the taxes assessed on their friends and family. They stand aside. The glitter is dazzling, but some sixth sense draws you towards one little locked box in particular. This is what you need. This is the crystal that will make you a Lumen. You tuck the box into your pocket. You can show it to your mentor later and get instructions on what to do next.
Elodie invests in the printing press and becomes a magical girl.
We decide to settle things peacefully. Then...
Your Highness, if I may ask... That necklace you're wearing. Where did it come from?
It was a gift from the Duke of Sedna.
Then, you have made arrangements with him?
(I think he's asking if I'm engaged to the Duke!)
The negotiation next week may break into another choice, so just vote for 2 classes and for the negotation.
