Phew! Nice work. We won without much incident, thanks to all of you.

Alois
Now the enemy knows we're on the move. What do you plan to do?

Knight of Seiros
I don't think the Empire will leave us alone now. What do you plan to do?
link
Claude
I intend to ask the Alliance lords to share some troops with us to bolster our forces.
link
Lorenz
I will speak plainly. No matter whom we beseech for reinforcements, our envoys will inevitably pass through Gloucester territory.
link
Lorenz
My father is being cautious not to give the Empire a pretext to intervene. Therefore, he is unlikely to allow even envoys to pass through.

Hilda
No matter where we send our envoys from here, they'll have to go through Gloucester territory, right?
link
Hilda
I doubt that family will sit quietly and allow envoys to pass.
link
Why not request reinforcements from the Kingdom?
link
Claude
Ah... I guess I haven't told you yet, Teach. The Kingdom isn't in a position to be sending anyone reinforcements.

Claude
After losing King Lambert during the Tragedy of Duscur, a Regent had been handling its politics. But then...
link
Claude
There was a bloody coup. The Regent and Prince Dimitri both... Apparently the whole family was killed.
link
Claude
All Blaiddyd territory, including the Kingdom capital, is being ruled by those who are cooperating with the Empire.
link
Claude
The Kingdom is no more. It's now called the Faerghus Dukedom.
link
Claude
The vast majority of the former Kingdom lords bent a knee to the overwhelming power of the Empire and the Dukedom, and now fall under their jurisdiction.
link
Claude
Some who formerly held power are continuing to resist, but it would be difficult for them to regain it.
link
Hilda
Oh, hey! I can think of one person who we can ask for reinforcements.
link
Hilda
Someone whose territory is really close, and who's on good terms with Claude...
link
Lysithea
Ah! The Hero of Daphnel, I presume?
link
Leonie
I've seen her before, and she does seem to be reliable.
link
Marianne
You're talking about Judith, right? I bet she would lend us a hand...
link
Knight of Seiros
Judith, the Hero of Daphnel, I presume? It's true, House Daphnel may lend us their aid...
link
Claude
That's right, you've met her once before, Teach. She's a fearsome one-woman army.
link
Claude
She did a lot for me, even before I was recognized as the heir to House Riegan.
link
Claude
I don't like the idea of owing her more than I already do, but given the current situation, sacrifices must be made.
link
Claude
I'll reach out to her. As for the rest of you, prepare for our next battle.
