Thank you. You may leave now.

Not really... There is just a problem I must now clean up.
link
Dimitri
Do you know of Arianrhod? It is a fortress that also goes by the name of the Silver Maiden.
link
Dimitri
Yes, I had thought I might have mentioned it before. It is a fortress city that is lauded as the strongest in the Kingdom.
link
Dimitri
Is that so? Arianrhod is a fortress city, lauded as the strongest in the Kingdom.
link
Dimitri
The land around Arianrhod was once entrusted to Count Rowe...
link
Dimitri
When he turned to the Empire, the Silver Maiden went with him.
link
Dimitri
Now, one after another, the lords of each region are leaving the Empire at the call of the eastern lords...
link
Dimitri
But I am sure the Empire has no plans to relinquish the Fortress City, given its strategic position on the front lines of their war with the Kingdom.
link
Dimitri
Unless we can take back Arianrhod, the Kingdom will continually be attacked at its weakest points.
link
Dimitri
I was thinking that we need to deal with it soon, and that we need to investigate the status of the enemy's force, but...
link
Is there a problem?
link
Dimitri
I am afraid so. We confirmed that troops departed the Imperial capital, headed for Arianrhod.
link
Dimitri
If they are followed by a second and third batch of reinforcements, then the difficulty of taking back Arianrhod will increase exponentially.
link
Dimitri
But, that does not mean we are entirely without recourse. I am just at a loss as to when the soldiers will arrive.
link
Dimitri
Right away? You never cease to amaze. Your answers always bring me joy.
link
Dimitri
OK. Let's gather everyone immediately. We'll begin the war council for the departing troops.
link
Dimitri
Indeed, I realize that was out of the blue. You have your own worries. Please accept my apologies.
link
Dimitri
Though I do hope to deal with this sooner than later... If possible, I would like to ask you to take the lead.
link
Dimitri
Speak with me again if you change your mind.
