If the chocolates had a victim during week 33 and you chose to direct your agents toward noble plots/commoner uprisings, you will receive a report on the assassination attempt. Different flavor text according to which direction you chose for your agents, whether there was a civil war, and Commoner Approval.

If you recruited Sabine as a spy and the chocolates had a victim during week 33, she will start an investigation.

Whatever your previous choices, your father will inform you of a pending foreign invasion. Flavor text if you were expecting this to happen eventually.

Choose whether to recruit more soldiers for 2,000 lassi. More soldiers will increase you chances of winning a regular victory.

Choose whether to direct the fleet or stay in the capital. Directing the fleet will count your full skills in the battle, but expose you to risk. Staying in the capital may or may not be detrimental depending on your Military skills

If Arisse is your advisor and you want to direct your fleet, you must test Naval Strategy + Swimming ≥ 100 or be forced to stay at home.

If you choose to lead the fleet, and you are a Lumen, you will talk with your magic mentor. If your mentor is a priestess, test Foreign Intelligence ≥ 100 to understand something about your enemy.

If you have access to at least three Lumen, you can then choose to attempt to sink the invading fleet with magic:

Use magic against the fleet / Yes: +1 Willful
Fight with navy only / No: +1 Afraid

Week 35Edit

Magical strike, if you chose to sink the enemy fleet with magic: The rolls and results for using magic against the fleet vary depending on how many people are working with you.

If you are trying to sink the enemy fleet with magic, and there are 3 Lumen in your circle:

Test Wield Magic ≥ 100:

Success: You fight at a distance, test Lumen ≥ 300:
Failure (< 200): You blow yourself up and die.
Partial Success (≥ 200 < 300): You damage the enemy fleet and proceed to a naval battle. A sea monster will rise next week.
Success: The enemy fleet is annihilated. A sea monster will rise next week.
Failure: You have to get close, test Lumen ≥ 200:
Failure: You blow yourself up and die.
Success: You damage the enemy fleet and proceed to a naval battle. A sea monster will rise next week.

If you are trying to sink the enemy fleet with magic, and there are 4 Lumen in your circle:

Test Wield Magic ≥ 100:

Success: You fight at a distance, test Lumen ≥ 200:
Failure (< 120): You blow yourself up and die.
Partial Success(≥ 120 < 200): You damage the enemy fleet and proceed to a naval battle. A sea monster will rise next week.
Success: The enemy fleet is annihilated. A sea monster will rise next week.
Failure: You have to get close, test Lumen ≥ 200:

Partial Success (≥ 120 < 200): You damage the enemy fleet and proceed to a naval battle. A sea monster will rise next week.
Success: You blow the enemy to bits, but are overtaken by a freak wave and drown at sea.

Naval battle, if the enemy fleet is still en route (Didn't attempt a Magical strike, or part of the enemy fleet survived it).

If you ceded control of your territory during Week 10, Test Court Manners ≥ 60 to add more ships to your fleet (a flotilla from Ixion).

If you chose to direct the fleet in person there are now some checks to see what bonuses you add to the battle.

Test Climbing ≥ 60 to climb to the crow's nest for a better view of the battlefield. This boosts the bonus to combat granted by Naval Strategy, and also enhances the range of the Wield Magic check below.
Test Wield Magic ≥ 60 to act as a cannon and inflict some damage to the enemy.

Your Military skills are automatically added as a bonus, unless you have 0 naval strategy, in which case your skills become a penalty instead. Your amount of skill DOES make a difference here because the bonus added depends on how much skill you have, but there's not a specific check for it that comes up. It just adds as much as you have.

None of these options is individually required, but it affects the bonus you receive, so if you don't have any of these skills you may not be able to win the fight unless you have every possible secret soldier bonus.

To win the naval battle without magic, you need to pass your tests, have many soldiers (Hiring them when prompted and not losing any) AND have enough ships (build them or receive them as foreign aid). If you don't have enough ships, you will always lose.

The outcome now depends on the number of troops and ships on your side, plus any relevant bonuses. +3 Cheerful, +20 Noble Approval, +8 Commoner Approval if you win.

If you lose, test Strategy + Naval Strategy ≥ 150

Success: You escape, but your fleet is lost.
Failure: Test Swimming ≥ 100
Failure (< 50): You drown at sea.
Partial success (≥ 50 < 100): Test Composure ≥ 70
Success: You escape, but your fleet is lost. +5 Afraid
