Caz and his sister seem like the type to make you swim with concrete shoes if you can’t repay them, so…
Well I suppose I could reduce my mc’s investment amount with Garing from 2000 to 1000 crowns and that should leave my mc just barely able to pay off the interest, the moronic robes and be able to afford that commission. But yeah, since I didn’t do the secret mission and my character never looted like a common soldier either that is all the money he has to show for twelve years of war.
I guess that makes my mc an example of why in countries with weak institutional structures and a dysfunctional judicial system so many military officers are inclined to corruption to supplement their not usually over generous wages.
You are talking to someone who on occasion has to don formal judicial robes for his work and if there is one garment that could make even super cute guys look less appealing our horribly outdated civilian judicial robes would be a good contender.
I wonder what all the old(er) knights with uhm…let’s say “expanded” waistlines do. I mean they might sell their armour too, seeing as how they cannot possibly fit in it anymore.
Don’t forget an avoided marriage in my head-canon anyway.
Other then that you’re mostly right. Particularly since the Dragoons don’t really have a particularly fancy dress uniform either.
