Difficulty: Hard
Made with version: 1.2

What was going on in the east wing of the castle was a normal dinner. Were present the king, his son, Army General and General of the fleet, a pair of bishops and I, commander of the elite riders. It was a poor dinner for a king. It consisted of stewed fish, lobsters, prawns in sauce, anchovies, tuna loins and swordfish and a delicacy from the remote East boiled turtle. Appeared on the table some of the cornucopias of fruit and baskets filled with different types of olives. Everyone was silent, listening to the king who dwells on the benefits of its economic policy. You should know that our king was a great miser. Or as he called himself, a careful economist. The royal coffers were always full, but were never emptied. The money accumulated, to the delight of the sovereign. The problem is that I spent none of it: the people lived in poverty for heavy taxes. Some buildings were in ruins because they did not pay maintenance. The army was not paid and it was greatly reduced. No one knows why the king was so stingy ... Coming back to dinner, had arrived at the sweet: some poor buns soaked in molasses. I was going to try one when a valet entered the room and began to whisper something to the king. He got up and left the room. Disturbed I put the cake and followed him. Before I heard it. He was yelling something about a huge amount of gold and prisoners. I reached him and suddenly he fell silent. He looked at me for a long moment and then said
<<I should not tell, but so is useless to hide it. My wife and daughter were kidnapped while they were walking in their carriage. The kidnappers demand a ransom of 25,000 dinars. And of course I do not intend to pay!>>
I looked at him with a look of commiseration <<My lord, this is your family ... Who kidnapped them?>>
<<In message was also written this: was Ryndall, the king of the North lands.>>
For me, the queen was almost a strangerI had not gotten to know her. But with the mambina had a deep bond of affection.
<<I'm on it! >> I said at once
<<I'll find the money and deliver the prisoners! >> The King looked at me surprised, but grateful, and he agreed.

The plan was simple Rydall: When the king had paid the ransom would be left without money to pay his army, which would be dissolved. Then he attacked the castle was conquered and helpless. Rydall when he learned that the money would not be used of the royal treasury was furious. The captain in charge of finding the gold had settled in a castle on the border. Had to force him to withdraw and use the money of the royal treasury ...

Two days after ...

The preparations had been completed. I would have moved with some men in a castle along the border to the north. I would have tried to collect the ransom as quickly as possible. I had full powers over the people, but the responsibility that weighed on my shoulders was immense. Despite some problems, progress is made&#8203;&#8203;. Part of the treasure had been obtained, but was about to happen that would change everything. When a group of knights who were patrolling the neighborhood told me what they had seen did not believe. The army of Rydall was marching against us, ignoring the treaty stipulated for ransom. Now it was not just finding the gold, but also to repel an enemy infinitely more powerful.
