- I wish to apologize for the behavior of my mother once more. The hag has been mad since I can remember and I always wondered how she managed to acquire enough wealth to buy the house and guarantee my office in Flotsam. I hope His Highness's emissary was not permanently disturbed by her excesses. I solemnly swear that the red hot circlet was just a foolish jest. Furthermore, I confirm that I will use my position and office according to His Royal Highness's wishes, as was agreed at the meeting. As a patriot, I wholeheartedly agree with Your Excellence's opinion: Flotsam cannot allow chaos and lawlessness - plagues inseparable from interregnum - to rule it's streets. The King is dead, long live the King!
- Bernard Loredo, Flotsam Garrison commander
