Scene: Valeria, Conan, and Subotai stand before King Osric, surrounded
King Osric (DM):Upon the return of my daughter, by You,
the signee, wherein she is no more harmed than the state you find
her, with her dignity intact, and without being followed by more
than 20 medium level troops, to the current location regardless
of The King's current location, then I or my Aid will grant you a
20 hectare land with serfs, which will entitle you to 1,000 gold
per game month, and a title of Barron or Baroness.
Subotai:Why doesn't the old man just do it himself, or
send some of his guards?
King Osric (DM):Because the snake cult has too much power,
and would assassinate me if I moved in the open like that.
Valeria:That doesn't make sense. As soon as your daughter
is returned, wouldn't it be obvious that you did move against them?
Even if we don't make it back with her, the mere observation that
there was a rescue attempt for her would be enough to have you
King Osric (DM):Look, either you take this stupid quest or
you run the game.
Valeria, Conan, and Subotai:We take the quest.
