Hear ! Hear !

I am Vale the 5th

vokJi61.png


I am a very weak-willed King, so I need a list of people willing to be part of my Council. As I meet people, well, YOU, you will be added to my Council, we will decide DE-MO-CRA-TI-CA-LLY what our next moves are.
Well, aristocratically, I guess.

And of course, not sure what will happen to you once we meet, given the peculiar list of commands of the game :

PDqKx56.png


The list of volunteers will be curated a bit, so the most active people in other let's play are pushed up. I expect you to play the part of whatever fate gives you !

Also, before we start, as I just woke up in my room :

fZ7o7P5.png


I am trying to remember which one of you is going to be my wife. My first wife, anyway :

crmh8L3.png


And of course, I need a name for a rival. TemplarGR ? Trump ? I take all proposals !

jTOVA76.png



Final note : this is highly experimental, and I only tested the game quickly to see if it would work for my... "project", so no complains.

What's that, an Ultima IV mod? My Liege, may I suggest to Graphics Mode? :smug:

Okay, I suppose I could participate. Make me a Duke or something.

Actually, our resident Pretty Princess is the only valid choice for the King's wife.

Speaking of which, how did Volourn ever get that tag, anyone knows?

Reporting for Spymaster or Court Herald duties. This time I will be productive, I promise!
Also, if the game permits it, you should build a harem, housing concubines such as TemplarGr, Fluent, That Chinese dude that never shuts up and other Codexian celebrities.
Item, may I propose your majesty's first punitive action to be the beheading of certain Felipepe for disgracing us with that horrendous "2020 RPG list"?

Since some members have already claimed their posts, I shall of course be the Lord Grand Admiral of the Navy.

If we don't have a navy, then whichever position above that of toilet-scrubber will do :oops:

Another good rival could be the man, the legend, CLEVE BLAKEMORE himself.
I'll vote for this as our rival. The man is a walking comedic troupe rolled into one person.

Part I : Introduction, clues already

So here is our intuitu personae after all :

3BASS8c.png


I wake up from a weird dream next to my Steward :

fZ7o7P5.png


gxqTBUU.png
Well, let's talk to the guy.

Note that what will be put like <this> is going to be the keywords I use. If you see several, that's because different keywords, same answer.


EAylRGm.png
Good morning, Your Majesty. A visitor awaits in your court, south. I do hope he's here to schedule the summit.
EAylRGm.png
<name> My mother named me Andnjord
EAylRGm.png
<mother> I do wish you hadn't executed her. Oh well!
EAylRGm.png
<job> I am your steward. I will help however I can.
EAylRGm.png
<steward> If you ever need help, just press H, that's what I always say.
EAylRGm.png
<summit> At the summit we'll meet with King Blakemore, and show him we're more wealthy. Ask me about the summit anytime! I love it!
EAylRGm.png
<Blakemore> A real showoff, that one. But we'll show him who's rich! Haha!
EAylRGm.png
<rich> You must show how rich you are at the summit!

gxqTBUU.png
Oh really ? Well, let's get the first contribution from you, man
CGHMVXq.png


gxqTBUU.png
Ah !

gxqTBUU.png
Well, that's enough intro. Let's talk to the dog and see if it does anything :

L4ZV8zM.png
His collar says 'Citizen'
L4ZV8zM.png
<Citizen> Citizens seems to smile
L4ZV8zM.png
<job> Ruff!
L4ZV8zM.png
<summit> Citizen looks confused

Well, I tried to tax the dogs but he, or she, has no cash on him, or her. Or it. Whatever.

I opened the box (more gold !) and read the book :

IllFri1.png


gxqTBUU.png
Interesting advice !

Well, next room is my beautiful ? wife. [if anyone has the avatar of Volourn I am taking it !]

kfWQkPJ.png
Hello, dear Best wishes for your summit.
kfWQkPJ.png
<name> Volourn
gxqTBUU.png
I should have known. Always hard to remind people's names.

6Bmy2KA.png



kfWQkPJ.png
<job> To produce an hear one day, I suppose. I miss the old days
kfWQkPJ.png
<heir> We are working on it
gxqTBUU.png
Someone is barren !
kfWQkPJ.png
<working> Volourn laughs and kisses you.
kfWQkPJ.png
<summit> I am worried about your safety at the summit. Do you need more guards ?
kfWQkPJ.png
<Yes> Oh very well ! I ll order them to attend.
ah3xpQ3.png

kfWQkPJ.png
<Collect Taxes> We share our finances, dear.


gxqTBUU.png
What is my wife reading ?

MigJfa0.png


gxqTBUU.png
Ah ! She is a keeper !Well, what else is there to do here ? This maybe ?

o0qcKDA.png


gxqTBUU.png
I know ! There must be a secret passage behind the fire :

E0QqP26.png
gxqTBUU.png
Dang ! Well, let's go in the Court room then.

xjBhaeA.png


gxqTBUU.png
Ah, a throne, let's get all Regal !

m163NdF.png


gxqTBUU.png
Time to speak with that weird dude, and then the guy with the escort.

x2Vv7a3.png
That summit is an awful idea. But I know some jugglers and a minstrel
x2Vv7a3.png
<name> Mondblut, hoo hee!
x2Vv7a3.png
<idea> Your steward is the idea man!
x2Vv7a3.png
<jugglers>[<summit>] It's a waste of gold, but 200 will get you jugglers.
x2Vv7a3.png
<minstrel> He's usually asleep in the bluebells by the courtyard fountain. Just yell MINSTRELL and he'll awaken!
gxqTBUU.png
Uhhhh first clue !
x2Vv7a3.png
<job> I am your jester. I have sworn to speak only truths!
x2Vv7a3.png
<truth> Like how that summit is an awful idea!
x2Vv7a3.png
<sworn> I have sworn to do my job indeed! Hoo Hee!
x2Vv7a3.png
<jester> Hoo gee! Tis the truth!
x2Vv7a3.png
<speak> If you command it, I must say that summit is an awful idea!
x2Vv7a3.png
<collect taxes> You pay me in onions, so here's your portion. Mondblut gives you a small onion. You throw it to the ground.



And let's finish with the big guy :

nfg9uFd.png
A visiting diplomat says : Bonjour. I suppose you wish to ask me about 'name' 'job' and 'summit'
gxqTBUU.png
Thank you, Mr Tutorial !
nfg9uFd.png
<name> I am Emissary Kalin, aide to King Blakemore, doing my job
nfg9uFd.png
<Blakemore> He'll respect you more if the summit is appropriately grand.
nfg9uFd.png
<grand> So the summit shall be !
nfg9uFd.png
<job> I have been sent by King Blakemore to inform you he shall visit. Do you have enough finery prepared for the summit ?
nfg9uFd.png
<No> Then perhaps you should have your servants being to prepare. King Blakemore will employ hils tailor, stablemaster, guard captain, vintner, and so on
nfg9uFd.png
<tailor> <all other jobs in the list> Ask your steward about your staff. I've no idea.
nfg9uFd.png
<summit> When you are ready, inform your steward. But King Blakemore will surely spend more lavishly than you could afford.
nfg9uFd.png
<bye> Farewell, you majesty

Well, I guess he asked me to go talk back to the Steward, so back to Steward Andnjord :

EAylRGm.png
We must bring more luxury to the summit than King Blakemore! I'ill tidy up while you prepare for the summit!
gxqTBUU.png
Wait ! Wait ! Wait ! You already have new lines ?
EAylRGm.png
<Prepare> The summit will require quite some funds
EAylRGm.png
<funds> You've tucked savings around the castle. The treasury is full of gold but I heard the key is lost.
EAylRGm.png
<key><lost> The crown key ? Nobody knows what happened to it, sadly.
gxqTBUU.png
<tailo.... wait no. You are going to tell me where to find them, and I don't care about this. I don't even know what a vintner is anyway. So later if I don't find them. BYE

Now exploring the last room for today, immediately East of the Court Room :

8RF7Ml7.png


gxqTBUU.png
More cash ! Also, there is a book titled "REFORM". I wonder what it says :

HfTI1jV.png


We stop for today ! Here is the known world :

etRlxJH.png


Andnjord, mondblut and Citizen as the only members of the Court, you are to decide, in character (even you, Citizen), what am I going to do next :

- Who am I going to Knight, if any !
- Who am I going to eXecute, if any ! [Execution is two-stepped : the victim is first brought to the execution area, where he can still be Forgiven, or well, confirmed eXecuted.
- Who do I Jail, if any !

For divorce and marry, well, currently I can't divorce because of the Pope. I can't ordain my own priests, either. For now. Soooooon.
I can't tax the guards. I try. I can do any of the rest, though.

Also, where do I go next :

- See my fair people in the village ?
- See my servants (tailors and other), in the West ?
- In the religious area, to maybe start the Reform ?

And of course, if you want me to test keywords, I will do it.

Aaaw, what's a little mother-killing amongst friends :love:

As for voting, I suggest thy Majesty visits our fair people, we shall need to (C)ollect Taxes from them first before we can hire the tailors.

EDIT: Volourn's avatar is the default one, ergo:

Also, she should say ROOOOOFLES!!! Like, a lot.

:Coughs politely: A vintner is a dude who deals (imports, sells, distributes) in wines of various sorts.

Part II : Meeting my good staff, the mystery of the missing key

As suggested by my Jester, I explore the rest of my castle, collecting tax from everyone I meet and opening every single chest (for this reason I won't be telling you about these if they are just in the way).

In the corner of the Court Room, there is a ladder down. VERY MYSTERIOUS.

vR7Kw3O.png


So I get to check what is down there :

FBFxF75.png


Ah ! The treasure course of course, which was below the throne room [check the Palais des Papes in Avignon for instance]. Well, I remember there is a key issue. Let's ask that guard :

MCP5pxp.png
A soldier says : Welcome to the treasure. Sorry to hear about the key.
MCP5pxp.png
<name> Tindrli
MCP5pxp.png
<job> I guard your treasury
MCP5pxp.png
<treasury> Aye, it's your treasure. If we had the key you could use it!
MCP5pxp.png
<key> It had a little crown on it. Nobody knows where it went! Tindrli seems fidgety. You think she's lying.
gxqTBUU.png
Wait, this is very suspicious. Very suspicious. "She" guard ? In MY medieval age ?
MCP5pxp.png
<lying> No I'm not! I mean, you wouldn't punish someone based on a feeling would you?
MCP5pxp.png
<punish> Tindrli shrugs fearlessly
MCP5pxp.png
<summit> Sounds like you'll need a lot of gold
MCP5pxp.png
<gold> Plenty of gold in this here treasury.
MCP5pxp.png
<Collect Taxes> Tindrli is paid in room and board
MCP5pxp.png
<bye >Tell me when you find the key !

gxqTBUU.png
Hmm. Let's get back to the throne room and explore the rest of the castle.

In the West there is a bunch of corridors. I won't bear you describing every corridor, so I will just tell you the rooms I visited :

- A room with a spinning wheel and some nice woman - a seamstress apparently.

DRETBBr.png


I get to talk to her :

iO0Hs2H.png
You're looking very regal today. I look forward to the summit."
iO0Hs2H.png
<name> Endemic, at your service
iO0Hs2H.png
<job> I'm the castle tailor. I sew all the royal clothes.
iO0Hs2H.png
<castle> Finest in all the land, Your Majesty
iO0Hs2H.png
<regal> A gold suit will do nicely at the summit
iO0Hs2H.png
<suit> A suit of pure gold cloth for the summit will cost 500 gold. But you don't have that much.
iO0Hs2H.png
<summit> For 500 gold, I can sew a SUIT of gold
gxqTBUU.png
500 gold ? What's your margin on that !
iO0Hs2H.png
<tailor> I shall sew a royal suit for the summit
iO0Hs2H.png
<Collect Taxes> : Endemic gives you their taxes. + 30 gold!
iO0Hs2H.png
Before you go, can I ask you a question ?
gxqTBUU.png
Er... yes ?
iO0Hs2H.png
Why did you pick me as the seamstress ?
gxqTBUU.png
Well, I had a limited choice of people to pick. Your avatar looks like a woman, I may get to marry you and really I don't want to marry Strange Fellow's avatar.


- Next I visit the kitchen, next to witch there is a pantry :

tolDCAS.png

5afJqpu.png


Ah ! A fire ! Let me check whether it will be the fireplace of the game with the secret passage :

unRNGNU.png


Ah ah ! Vindicated ! 25HP going, 25HP leaving, but +50 gold. You recover HP when sleeping in the throne room anyway.

Now, talking time :

E0nbNCV.png
A large cook says : We're cooking up a storm for the summit, Your Majesty
E0nbNCV.png
WHY AM I THE COOK ? WHY AM I THE COOK ?
gxqTBUU.png
Your avatar looks fat and satisfied. Plus, rats in kitchen, makes sense. Have you seen this documentary on restaurant made by Disney ?
E0nbNCV.png
<job> I am a cook here in the castle kitchens
E0nbNCV.png
<cook> The burns and cuts are all worth it
E0nbNCV.png
<burns> <cuts> Don't worry yourself, Your Majesty.
E0nbNCV.png
<castle> Finest in all the land, Your Majesty
E0nbNCV.png
<summit> My dream is to cook a roast dragon... and eat a golden flan!
E0nbNCV.png
<dragon> We'll need a brave knight to kill a dragon! Ask the Guard Captain
E0nbNCV.png
<knight> The Guard Captain will know who is worthy of dragon slaying
gxqTBUU.png
God ! Good thing I am doing this let's larp, I am not going to lose my notes.
E0nbNCV.png
<Guard Captain> The Guard Captain should be in the barracks
E0nbNCV.png
<flan> The butler knows the secret of the golden flan
E0nbNCV.png
<butler> Yell for Dayyalu in the pantry. He sleeps in there sometimes.
E0nbNCV.png
Collect Taxes : Darth Roxxor hands hover his waves. + 20 gold!

Well, I know what to do in the pantry then. I [Y]ell Dayyalu, and what do you know...

NCR0mtW.png
BUTLER ? SERIOUSLY ? WITH MY AVATAR ? I WANTED CHAMBERLAIN !
gxqTBUU.png
The dude was sleeping on duty and you are Italian. Also, please stay in character
NCR0mtW.png
Ah, hello. I wasn't sleeping, no. No.
NCR0mtW.png
<sleeping> I do sleep too much. My apologies, Your Majesty
NCR0mtW.png
<name> Was it not you who yelled ? I am Dayyalu, Your Majesty
NCR0mtW.png
<job><butler> I am your faithful butler
NCR0mtW.png
<summit> Perhaps I shall make a golden flan ?
NCR0mtW.png
<flan> When you have 700 gold, we can make a delicious golden Flan
NCR0mtW.png
<expensive> Oh, you know. About 800 gold worth
gxqTBUU.png
Errr where does that 100 gold difference comes from ?
NCR0mtW.png
Collect Taxes : John gives you their taxes. + 20 gold.

After visiting the pantry, I visit what is below the kitchen, and what do I see...

iY3rEEK.png


LOTS AND LOTS OF WINE CASKS. Also, clearly I am on the other side of the treasury ?

I "U"se the casks a bit and what do you know :

oiM7V2t.png


Direction is all scrambled, and I got those bubbles on my screen. Let's ask the dude there what he is doing :

oiM7V2t.png


Gft9jsy.png
Welcome to the cellar, Your Majesty
Gft9jsy.png
I petitioned for spymaster and you give me VINTNER ?
gxqTBUU.png
You were the only one knowing what a vintner was in the first place.
Gft9jsy.png
<name> Vazha your majesty
Gft9jsy.png
<job> I manage your royal wines
Gft9jsy.png
<manage><priest> The priests make the wine and I manage it.
Gft9jsy.png
<wine> Use the casks for a tipple, or I can order wine fountains for the summit
Gft9jsy.png
<fountain> You'll finance wine fountains with 600 gold
Gft9jsy.png
<No> Entirely reasonable, your Majesty
Gft9jsy.png
<cellar> I manage several fine wines here, including those for the summit.
Gft9jsy.png
<summit> Perhaps the fountains should flow with wine!
Gft9jsy.png
<treasury> Your treasury is right next door! I hear the guard muttering at night...
Gft9jsy.png
<muttering> I think she's planning a big trip soon!
Gft9jsy.png
<trip><foreign> Something about escaping to a foreign continent
Gft9jsy.png
<continent> You know, across the channel where Blakemore and Dark Underlord have their kingdoms
Gft9jsy.png
<Blakemore> He's the worst!
Gft9jsy.png
<Dark Underlord> Emperor Dark Underlod, he's on the move again.
Gft9jsy.png
<channel> The body of water that separates us from Blakemore's kingdom
gxqTBUU.png
OK so we are either not-France, or not-England. Given Kalin welcomed us with "Bonjour", I suppose the later.
gxqTBUU.png
Anyway, this was all very interesting, thank you for the 30 coins in taxes, I will have to do something about Tindrli I suppose.

Going up, I explore a bit the rest of the left wing of the building :

I find a small room with...
HvmCxHk.png


A LUTE !

OZFo2VP.png


West of the kitchen there is also a a lader to the rampart :

OikExRe.png


Overall, the explored layout looks like this at this point :

n5LQUGT.png


Yeah, there are some enclosed space, I guess I need to reach from below or above.

Anyway, I carry on, and go South of the pantry, finding myself...

OUTSIDE !

vNPygnE.png


Further East, I find the Executioner :

HTrVh1i.png



a59DE9Q.png
A fine day for executions, if you must
a59DE9Q.png
<name> Helly for short.
a59DE9Q.png
<job> I perform executions
a59DE9Q.png
<execution> I perfom my role in one fell chop
a59DE9Q.png
<chop> I perform executions with skill.
a59DE9Q.png
<skill><role> Helly points to the bloody block before him
a59DE9Q.png
<blood> We clean the block as best we can, Your Majesty
a59DE9Q.png
<summit> I don't think I'll attend that.
gxqTBUU.png
Ah, best way to bring a wave of fresh air to the party !
a59DE9Q.png
<bye> I'll be here if you need an execution
gxqTBUU.png
Thanks for thhe 50 gold tax. You gave more than some other.


Finally, I explore the building to the West, it is the barracks !

NoDkLPa.png


One guard has not much to say, but there is also...

1UUupRr.png
A guard captain says : inspecting the barracsk, Your Majesty ?
1UUupRr.png
<name> Captain Strange Fellow, Your Majesty
1UUupRr.png
<job> I'm your Captain of the Guard!
1UUupRr.png
<captain> I manage your soldiers
1UUupRr.png
<soldiers> Aye, we're training hard for the summit
1UUupRr.png
<guard> I hope we improve their armour before the summit
gxqTBUU.png
I appreciate you saying "armour" the proper not-England English way.
1UUupRr.png
<armour> Well, we could buy fancy golden armour for 1000 gold, but it seems we don't have that much right now.
gxqTBUU.png
This is getting ridiculously expensive at this point.
1UUupRr.png
<gold> Aye, there's plenty of gold in your treasury, I hope
1UUupRr.png
<treasury> <Tindrli> Your treasury is below the court. Tindrli is currently assigned there. She has been acting strange since we lost the crown key
1UUupRr.png
<key> I offered Tindrli a partner in case the thief returned, and she refused! Said she could take care of it by herself. For some reason, she likes being left alone down there.
1UUupRr.png
<alone> Treasury duty is unpopular... one's likely to go mad sitting in the dark with all that gold.
1UUupRr.png
<summit> I have some ideas about the summit... perharps better armor. I wish we had destrier, roast dragon, a choir, firebreathers, and jugglers!
gxqTBUU.png
Whoa ! Whoa ! Whoa ! maybe you should not be Guard Captain but some stuff like Event Manager !
1UUupRr.png
<destriers> Your master of horse can order fine destriers, surely

<roast dragon> You need a knight to slay a dragon ? For the kitchens, I am sure. I'll assign someone I forget the name right now. Tell her you need a roast dragon and she'll find one.

Forget the name ?

Might be someone important. Also a she. You could marry her maybe. We don't want to waste a character like this with a bad name.

<person whose name you clearly forget> She prays in the town chapel, to the southwest

<choir> Your chaplain wishes he could train a choir for the Pope

<Pope> Some say you should (R)eform the Church and swear new laws on the Bible!

You clearly had a lot to say. Thank you for the taxes !


Finally, last element of our visit, we check below the barracks and it is the prison :

There is a guard with not much conversation, but later everyone we [J]ail will end up here.



Andnjord, Citizen, mondblut, tindrli, vazha, Dayyālu, Endemic, Darth Roxor, Helly and Strange Fellow - you are part of my Court. You are to decide, in character (even you, Citizen), what am I going to do next :

- Who am I going to Knight, if any !
- Who am I going to eXecute, if any ! [Execution is two-stepped : the victim is first brought to the execution area, where he can still be Forgiven, or well, confirmed eXecuted.
- Who do I Jail, if any !

Also, where do I go next :

- See my fair people in the village ?
- Finish exploring the Courtyard ?
- Explore the ramparts ?
- Go in the religious area ?

Also, please tell me what you think of the format - too much dialogs ? Not too interesting ? etc ! Still time to stop this :).

Good. First of all, I need a cap.

That looks like shit.

I don't care, it's historically accurate and you need a hat. The hat makes the man, remember our lessons of religious art. The hat.

It still looks like shit.

In character now, shush

My king! In this treacherous age, you should always be careful about thieves!. So, I suggest to keep a good eye on your Treasury Guard! Maybe, if my fellow courtiers agree, we should [J]ail her. Just to be safe and to keep safe my our your gold.

Also, it should be proper to check the religious situation of the Kingdom. For sure no one here would be more loyal to the blessed Pope than to you, fair king, but a closer check could be in order.

I have no idea about the structure of the game, but if it's an Ultima-like I don't know if your system will keep up. Worth a try nonetheless, I guess!
