And of course, the loyal body guard is going to want to have some very strong
" with this prince, when he gets back, if you know what I mean.
Loving these ideas, by the way, especially the name of the internal security force. Sadly, I have nothing to contribute yet.
Ooh, idea. What happens if the Shakou send some men out to see what's going on? Presumably, this exchange is noticeable, even if they can't make out too many details. They could show up just about at the same time as the Adder, and create a diversion that allows the group to escape. If we want to make it so that both sides are pretty much outcasts from their nations (I Imagine Edgar would be branded a traitor alongside the princess), maybe we could say that the guards that show up are worried that Maude, Alexander, and Sabina are defecting or working out some kind of deal with Victoria... because, you know, they're on the losing side of the war.
Also, I ramble a lot. Apologies.
