I just believe the feudal Dukes will go and crush it out of fear of centralisation. Part of their significant monopoly is the Oath of Montoy and I’m going to call them Treaties of Entry, granting them significant legal precedent and autonomy to keep a decentralised ruling scheme.
Personally, I feel like it’ll be allowing Britain to have an opt out feature whenever you try to centralise. If one of the Dukes just decides not to support it because it’s bad for them, it gets much harder to pass.
It sounds convenient, but they can happen. The only reason they haven’t been happening to our own men (aside from that one incident in Sabres, which was more due to profiteering) is because Cataphrak had decided to be merciful in that regard. In reality, with 200 men at least one person (probably more) is going to fall off their horse or have a defective/poorly-maintained carbine explode on them every now and then.
If her death does turn out to be anything more than a training accident, then depending on who was responsible that might have a significant impact on Cassius as a character, and potentially his thoughts toward his own homeland as well.
But I wouldn’t hold out hope for that; there’s nothing to indicate his mother’s death served any purpose beyond partially explaining how he became the way he is.
Also, considering that the death probably happened decades ago, it would be weird if any new evidence suddenly turned up to suggest otherwise. In real life, there are examples of “cold cases” being solved decades after the crime actually occurred, but those are extremely rare, and usually only possible because of modern technology.
Huh you military men are weird, many of the men in family served but almost all Enlist. Aren’t their any benefits to serving as one and my bf @Lancer mentioned once staff officers can have a little too much fun in their positions.
