In Sabres after we purcahse Thunderer & banewrought saddlery, we also read that our MC just got his head full of ‘Gossip straight from Richs-Senaat’.
That little nugget of info. doesn’t really benefit us. Does it?


#2666

It’s probably just a bit of trivia on the current political happenings of Takara. At the time it might have given your MC some topics to bring up in small talk, but considering it was eleven years ago I don’t see how it could possibly benefit us now.


#2667

Probably just the usual friendly(ish) chatter about stuff that didn’t really mean anything to the PC, since he’s not familiar enough with Takaran politics to recognize names.


#2668

Just as i thought. That gossip is stale by end of Guns


#2669

There was one thing I found out: During Sabres, if you speak to the Takaran, she mentioned that the Minister of the Navy will be committing ritual suicide, in which I think she was referring to Sato Vam Rusch.


#2670

Imagine the MC trying to bring it up in an attempt to impress either Cassius or Eckharts.

“Terrible thing that happened all those years ago. That affair involving the wife of a member of Imperial Intelligence. I believe her name was… uh…”

“…what are you even talking about?”

But that was five years later, and probably completely unrelated to whatever we heard. We probably don’t even remember what we heard in the first place.


#2671

Definitely, since we were completely having our mind on promotion, the war and the family debt. Either way, it’s worth to talk about this away from the story itself.


#2672

So Caz has Gryphon of Rendower bar as well.
Cross of Saint Jerome is what differentiates our (Hero) MC medal wise from Caz then. Hmm :thinking:


#2673

One thing worth to remind: The Cross of Saint Jerome can only be awarded for naval actions, and during boarding actions.


#2674

A thought just occurred to me.

Cazarosta’s belief that free will is an illusion does not actually restrict his freedom.

Instead, it grants him unlimited freedom, because it means everything he does, for either good or ill, can just be hand-waved as “The Will of the Saints.” He believes there is nothing he can do to change his fate, which makes him able to do whatever he wants because, in his mind, if the Saints didn’t want him to do something then he wouldn’t be able to do it.


#2675

It is an empathy-lacking affection starved adolescent’s way of rationalizing an irrational and absurd world.

Especially given how he describes the Saints speaking to him.


#2676

With that incident in church with statue defacing & this, I am beginning to think that Caz is somewhat of a religious fanatic. Or is he just a deeply religious person?


#2677

Talk to him at Wulfram’s reception.

And again before Second Kharangia, if you have a really high relationship with him (take the Salt Coast background, and do everything he approves of.)

Those two scenes basically outline his entire philosophy. He is a fanatic through and through.


#2678

OMG now you made him more dangerous, he won’t even hesitate to kill the MC and think its right to do so. Why can’t a saint just come back and have a chat with him.


#2679

I don’t think he’d kill the PC unless he had what in his head was a good and valid reason to do so. Caz seems to regard killing as a not especially pleasant means to an end.

If he can achieve that end through insulting you to your face treating you like hoo-mans treat hoo-man friends, he’ll do that.

It’s just that if he can’t through that means, he will have no moral problem escalating to violence.


#2680

Saint Talbott speaking to Cazarosta in the form of a cat:

its-time-to-stop


#2681

The Saints will not answer to anyone very easily, as God will not directly get close to us unless we show that we are willing to be close to him.

Saint Talbot’s still angry with Saint Jerome’s prank on his House.


#2682

I’m more intrigued by threat to Caz’s life seeing as he may soon find himself in crosshairs of RTI.
(Based on RTI dossier on him ofcourse)


#2683

He could just as easily become the crosshairs…


#2684

RTI is interestingly of two minds about him, aren’t they?
