You know, that's an interesting conundrum. If an assassin shows that he's perfectly capable of killing someone of royal blood, and you yourself are of royal blood, is it a good idea to keep that assassin around? I guess if you could keep the assassin loyal, then perhaps, yeah. Kin-slaying aside, Orvar does seem to be a decent boss, so maybe he could pull it off. Who knows though?

Okay, Joakim has proven he's got his wits about him and that his father is making sure he's properly educated. I think it's time for Mister High-and-Mighty to think of a career change, even if the obvious counterargument would be that once he's accepted a contract, he should carry it out so that he can still find work *and* not incur the wrath of his contracted employer.

A question that's been bugging me for awhile now though: why is a druid an assassin? Does he do it because he thinks it's a good way to destablize the empire in hopes it will collapse, or is he just strange for the typical nature-lover magic user?

I like to think it's not only the bravery in the face of a certain death but also getting grip on the situation, a good judgement of the enemy and their situation and getting the idea that has the best chance to work, plus the wits to get the message across - that is royalty! I have to admit that I underestimated Joakim (and of course your writing of him) very much. Kudos! (I'm still thinking that the chances are not so great but I'm not an imperial prince.)
