"I'm optimistic that the Holy League will wind up rewriting its charter, since it's not really designed for the current situation! Anyway, if taxes go up I'd expect people to start leaving. They have to let them, that's a condition for joining. A lot of places don't have taxes at all."

Leofe is really not that optimistic about 'maybe they actually DON'T want to conquer the world', and thinks that it would have been much more credible if they started saying it at any point when they were not being trounced.

She is also pretty sure she's not going to be able to talk these people out of it.

What goal does she want to achieve? She wants to take her army home, alive. She wants Montrege to stop trying to conquer the world. She wants what everyone wants, to preserve her honor.

And she wants adventure and glory and a chance to do something with her life and to not be stuck in a small town forever, but that's secondary.

What can she do to try to get it? Nothing. She's essentially powerless; people who don't understand her planet are making all the decisions.

She can't get onto the list of people making decisions. (And her first responsibility's to her army, the people who trust her, not to her country...)

The best move would be for Wolcyn would be to get Aputen to teleport her home instantly in a display of overwhelming force that she had done nothing to provoke; unfortunately Sergeant Arkwright made exactly the correct estimation for the level of dangerous Vanda Nosseo was without making the correct insight that they would not use that power.

Can she maneuver Marek Gerontmarkhen into getting the entire army teleported home?

... Does she need to maneuver Marek Gerontmarkhen into getting the entire army teleported home?

"I understand." She'll try a smile. "Well, theorizing aside, I'll want to consult with the army's commander-in-chief before making my decision."

"Sure, I don't have anywhere to be and I can wait right here."
