In-game description[edit | edit source]

The pitch:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
In the Vailian Republic of Palminia, a military graveyard has been struck by vandals that burn tributes left for the dead. Though troubling to the ducess, she has few local resources to deal with the problem.

As the republic will soon be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Lagone Pirella, the ducess would like to have the mystery solved quickly and quietly.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
With the blessing of the ducess of Palminia, [Companion Name] began an earnest investigation of the vandalism at the military graveyard. After a large amount of digging (some literal, some figurative), [Companion Name] was able to track down the solitary culprit, the grandson of a soldier who was executed for cowardice in the Battle of Lagone Pirella.

According to the young man, his grandfather was slandered and the execution was not just. The ducess and Palminia's songretta ducala reviewed the man's evidence and decided to restore his grandfather's dignity by inscribing his name on Lagone Pirella's memorial. However, the young man was still guilty of violating a long list of Palminian laws and customs. The ducess exiled him from the island for life.
