Long Live the Queen

Part 84: Weeks 25 - 28

Note: I forgot to change Elodie into the military uniform in this update. On the plus side, Elodie gets to remain stylin'.

You send orders for the assembly of new ships, and the strengthening of weaponry and cladding on the existing fleet. If trouble comes, you'll be ready for it.

There are approximately ten battalions, one company, and two platoons under your direct command. Progress on your new warships reportedly proceeds apace.

What a beautiful day!

It's nice to stop and breathe sometimes.

You visit the royal treasury and check your available funds. You have two thousand, one hundred and eighteen gold lassi and forty-seven silver tilassi.

You have nothing more to learn about Naval Strategy.

My lady, there are letters for you.

(Another letter from Briony. Why does she keep writing me? We were never even friends.)

(She says she's bored and lonely and she's looking forward to seeing me at Gwenelle's birthday party.)

(That's right! Gwenelle is about to turn fifteen! She'll be Duchess of Sudbury for real now.)

(This other letter must be my invitation to her birthday celebration next week. Gwenelle and I were friends at school, and this will be a big event, but it's also a long way to travel. A lot of things can happen on the road.)

(It'll be good to see my friends!)

Although I said I was only going to use the votes for weeks 26 and 27, I miscalculated, so I'm also using them for week 28. Sorry about that!

You have nothing more to learn about Strategy.

We made it to the party!

Uncle Laurent and Aunt Lucille are here, along with all three of their children. Charlotte rushes over eagerly to see you.

Hi, 'Lodie! Guess what?

Hi, Lottie. What is it?

Mummy said after your coronation I can come and stay at the castle with you! And we can talk about, you know, magic...

That's great!

However, it seems that the assembled nobles are not eager to converse with Countess Nix and her family. The position of Lumen Minister may be damaging Aunt Lucille's social cachet. Arisse, the Duchess of Lillah, is present, but she somehow always manages to avoid talking to you when you draw near. There are refreshments and dancers and musicians and polite conversations... and one or two not-so-polite.

Lucille has a twin?

Just because you're of age doesn't mean you know everything, young lady. You need my advice.

This is my home. It has never been yours.

Before you can back away, their gazes fall on you. They wait expectantly for you as near-queen to settle the dispute.

You may be wondering why we didn't get attacked by bandits. Good! One of the best parts of the game is trying to figure out what is going on behind the scenes. The decisions we made were very different from the first time, any of which may have contributed to this outcome. Please, goons who already know why this is, don't even hint about what caused this change. Let the people who don't know try to figure it out on their own.
