He did owe the Emperor a favor....but already paid it and it didn't disappear. I am not sure if it was a bug or maybe there are many types of favors? Maybe large favor or small favors? Maybe he owed the Emperor a huge favors and gave the Emperor two small favors? Math!?!?Always handy to have vassals who believe they owe you a favour. Any ideas how this kind of belief can be spread far and wide?
Just because he’s paranoid, doesn’t mean that army of demon spawn isn’t out to get him! Or his enemies.The old Baron of Numaligarh had died and his son, Brahmapala, had taken the title.
The problem was the man was Paranoid AND Possessed. Still, he seemed to have a HIGH opinion of the Emperor. And isn’t that all that really mattered in a new Baron?
A rhetorical wondering.And so we close this chapter with the Basileus wondering if other Rulers has such problems with their vassals.
The eternal dichotomy of a dedicated holy Buddhist emperor who is also an absolutist used to getting his own way. “I’m humble, I’m humble not, I’m humble, ...”Maybe it was his new relationships with his family. Maybe it was his Absolute Power. Or maybe it was his massive awareness. But it is said he was no longer Humble. He proclaimed how great and wonderful he was whenever somebody brought him his simple meal or came to change the straw in his bed.
At last! These frequent seclusions are a real imposition.“How nice of them to say so,” replied the Basileus as he quickly replaced his simple meal with a platter of meat pies and his weak beer with a deep red Greek wine.
That’s a very small garrison: with all the spending on buildings, have the capital‘s fortifications been neglected? Niphon never thought an enemy would get that far?The 2,800 bandits who attacked the walls, and the inner Keep, had no casualties while the 112 Imperial soldiers defending the Capital Castle died to the last man.
That’s something - he might have been killed where he stood.But the Host completely failed to capture the Emperor, his family, or his Court, as they all fled to the natural caves and tunnels that dotted the surrounding lands.
Just not believable - the Emperor will never be truly humble in his heart.Maybe it was the oatmeal. Or the rock hard flood which was now his bed. Maybe the cold water that was all he had to drink or the lack of milk baths. Maybe it was the long discussions with the dungeon rats, who had also escaped, but the Basileus found himself Humble again.
