I’ll aim away from him if I can. But not so much that he notices. Good man. Naturally, sire. People of Florin! Queen Talia and I are pleased to declare the commencement of this tournament, a tribute to the safe return of Prince Paladin and the trio of heroes who returned him! As if the delivery of my son from the clutches of his captors were not enough to fill us with joy, today we have a new pride in our hearts! For today my son, your future king, has decided to take up the lance and join his forefathers on the tournament pitch!

After that, all you’ll need is two friends to act as squires, who’ll tend to your horse and your arms. “Friends”…? How’d we get roped into this, again? Paladin doesn’t have any friends. What? Why?! He’s the Crown Prince! I’m guessin’ that is why. Probably a bit intimidatin’ for the other kids. I suppose. He said his father’s tryin’ to make a man out of him. You’d think he’d just buy friends. Why the sudden interest in jousting? Ugh. That never works. Go easy on the boy, Marcello… it’s his first time.

I thought I might find you here, ma’am. Paladin spends a lot of time here. It’s his favorite room in the palace. Much to his father’s chagrin. He’s always bringing me here to show me maps of far-off lands or to share some fanciful tale of long ago. I humor him, of course. Ugh. And mine. The King will bring him back, ma’am. You’ll see. I hope so, Corin. I really do… The Prince has returned! Make way for the Prince! Of course. …But he’s so young, and so… so… Yes. I know. What…?! Make way for King Victor and Prince Paladin!
