    Well, if we go for combat our Military skills stink - that'll cost us soldiers. I for one would rather overspend on the money than the dead bodies.

    Side question about the path we're taking, spoilered for spoilerage.

    In my own playthroughs with the real game now, I've made it up to the second assasination attempt. So I know why we're taking Accounting.

    I'm just curious as to why everyone favors Accounting over Presence. Presence seems much easier to raise, at least in the games I've tried it. I know there's a taxes check on Accounting later as well, but there didn't seem to be any consequences that I noticed. Is there more to that taxes check, or is there some other reason we went Accounting?

    Offer money. This gives us another choice where one of the options is to come back and choose something else.

    It's a tough choice between bluffing him and buying him off, but I'm going to go with buying him off.

    Ooh, we've gotten past the demo, I now have officially no idea what's going to happen. Yippee!

    Let's buy him off. Use the money we could have invested in the Printing Press.

    Accounting is easier to raise at first, since you don't have to get to Yielding for it. And now we're on it, so we may as well stay on...But had we focused, we could have been a Lumen by week 6, apparently.

    I've always done presence, but I've never gotten any of the early sense magic checks.

    Before I get to work (which'll probably happen after dinner), I do want to respond to one thing in particular:

    I'm creating a seperate save file for every week in-game. Should we make this choice, continue on, and eventually die... We can go back to this moment and re-make this choice, and any choices after it, in any way we want along with learning new skills for our survival. Because sometimes, you can avoid a bad end without learning different skills by simply making choices that don't cause you to end up needing those skills in the first place.

    So yes, yes you can get a savegame here, but you can only use it if we die.

    So, we decided to solve our problems with money, since we're approaching understanding how money works.
    I never did this, so this is officially our first blind choice for me. Goody goody gumdrops!

    "We are willing to offer some payment in exchange for the inconvenience you have suffered, but nothing more."
    You tell 'em! Flash that wallet!


    ...Accounting check? Where are you to tell me if that is a lot?

    There you are! See? I knew you would not desert me, little floating skill check boxes!
    Whoever said trade last week, good call, by the way.
    Of course, this only shows that this sum is absurd and we cannot accept it without facing our ruin.


    And right away, we've got another choice!



    So, what do we do about this?

    We make a Counter Offer, obviously. There's no way he would seriously expect such a ridiculous amount; he's clearly just feeling out his opponent before negotiations begin in earnest.

    Counter-offer 3 golden lassi. Up it to 4 and a half if he doesn't take it.

    Is it too late to execute him?

    We can't control Elodie's counter-offer, and actually, no.

    This request is an insult to Our Most Esteemed Personage! We cannot suffer this outrage!

    Since we decided to be reasonable, we may as well be the bestest at being reasonable and make a Counter Offer.

    He's clearly taking us for an imbecile here, I'd say refuse but we do have some half cecent acounting skills so....counter offer may be a viable solution.
    On the other hand... his first offer was frankly insulting. Refuse and off with his head ! is pretty tempting.

    In the event of any sort of tie (seems unlikely, but let's play pretend), this vote will win. Not the "refuse" option in general, but this vote. Personally.

    Maybe counter-negotiate. I'm not too sure about how the game works but I don't know if we can allow ourselves to provoke.

    Of course, this still leaves us with need for a new plan. Offering him money and making a counter-offer is still on the table, or we can try a different choice.

    Let's try a Bluff, Elodie still has the courting present bling from duke whatisface (Talasee ?) that has been identified as a powerfull rpvince and a good marriage prospect. She has likely no intention of wedding him of course but the messenger doesn't know that, nor does he know she's an awfull strategist.
    Intimidation with the prospect of a powerfull combined army may work.
