Acquisition Edit

Complete Choose Successor in Lydes (Part I).

Operation text Edit

If Caralina was removed in "Choose Successor in Lydes" using Josephine:

A fragment of a Ben-Hassrath information report:

With Caralina now out of play, either Monette or Jean-Gaspard will be the next Duchess or Duke of Lydes. Jean-Gaspard has made a strong claim with his fellow nobles by attacking Monette’s youth and lack of experience in the Game. For her part, Monette relies heavily upon her Chantry tutor, Mother Renette, who has rather desperately attempted to start a rumor that Jean-Gaspard owes his birth to his Mother’s affair with a traveling Grey Warden.

If Monette was removed in "Choose Successor in Lydes" using Leliana:

A fragment of a Ben-Hassrath information report:

With Monette removed from play, Caralina and Jean-Gaspard now vie openly for the duchy. Caralina is using her husband’s connections to make her claim appear stronger, while Jean-Gaspard rides to Val Firmin to challenge Caralina’s husband to a duel in response to the perceived insult.

If Jean-Gaspard was removed in "Choose Successor in Lydes" using Cullen:

A fragment of a Ben-Hassrath information report:

With Jean-Gaspard removed from play, Caralina or Monette will almost certainly be the next Duchess of Lydes. As the struggle intensifies, Caralina has sent agents to cause a scandal, judging that Monette does not have the skill to avoid such snares. Monette has relied upon Mother Renette, her mentor in the Chantry, for advice upon how to strengthen her claim to the duchy, and the revered mother, in an attempt to protect Monette, has sent mercenaries to threaten Caralina's life.

Advisor suggestions Edit

If Caralina was removed in "Choose Successor in Lydes" using Josephine:

Josephine

A few well-chosen words will send Monette back to the Chantry with no harm done.

Leliana

I have done some digging, and the rumors about Jean-Gaspard's parentage are true. Shall we make that knowledge public?

Cullen

Not participating in this mission.

If Monette was removed in "Choose Successor in Lydes" using Leliana:

Josephine

For Caralina, this duchy is a trophy, nothing more. If I turn the other nobles against her, she will bow out peacefully.

Leliana

Not participating in this mission.

Cullen

Let me send my best swordsman to fight as champion for Caralina's husband.

If Jean-Gaspard was removed in "Choose Successor in Lydes" using Cullen:

Josephine

Not participating in this mission.

Leliana

Caralina has overplayed her hand by giving her agents so much information. I can turn that on her and leave her reputation in tatters.

Cullen

Our troops can easily stop the mercenaries, and Caralina's plan should put her into position to be the next duchess.

Results Edit

If Caralina was removed in "Choose Successor in Lydes" using Josephine:

Install Jean-Gaspard as successor using Josephine / Time: 4:00:00

Ambassador Montilyet,

I am pleased to have made the acquaintance of your friends here in Orlais, and even more pleased that they have convinced Monette to return to the Chantry and take vows. I wish no harm to my niece, but her mind is better suited to the Chant of Light than to the Game.

Lydes is in safe hands now, and I will honor the Inquisition’s support in time to come. For now, I am sending a dozen Orlesian chevaliers to serve on behalf of my family, with foot soldiers following shortly.

Yours in friendship,
Duke Jean-Gaspard de Lydes

Install Monette as successor using Leliana / Time: 3:12:00

Sister Leliana,

I understand that I have you to thank for the sudden arrival of proof of Jean-Gaspard’s heritage. The Grey Warden’s love poems were most convincing, although his decision to rhyme "falling" with "Calling" was less so. Regardless, Jean-Gaspard has lost all claim to the duchy.

Monette wishes no ill for her uncle and has asked he and the men loyal to him join the Inquisition. With luck, Jean-Gaspard might regain in deeds the honor that he no longer may claim through blood. The young duchess herself is quite aware that she has you to thank for her position, and she has pledged the city of Lydes to the Inquisition’s cause.

Yours in gratitude,
Mother Renette

Ambassador Montilyet,

I am pleased to have made the acquaintance of your friends here in Orlais, and even more pleased that they have convince Caralina to throw aside her spurious claim to Lydes. In truth, I have no quarrel with her husband Stefan, and it would have caused me heartache to cross blades with him.

Lydes will honor the Inquisition’s support in time to come. For now, I am sending a dozen Orlesian chevaliers to serve on behalf of my family, with foot soldiers following shortly.

Yours in friendship,
Duke Jean-Gaspard de Lydes

Commander Cullen,

My husband informs me that your swordsman fought with legendary skill. I confess that I know little of swordplay myself, but seeing Jean-Gaspard sent off to his country estate to nurse his wounds was satisfaction enough for me. As Duchess of Lydes and Val Firmin, I promise that the Inquisition will always have allies here in Orlais.

Yours,
Duchess Caralina of Lydes

Sister Leliana,

My thanks for the timely information regarding the threat to young Monette. As I am sure you have heard, Lady Caralina has been disgraced as a result of making such an undignified attack on a young lady and has retired to the country in shame.

The young duchess herself is quite aware that she has you to thank for her position, and she has pledged the city of Lydes to the Inquisition’s cause.

Yours in gratitude,
Mother Renette

Install Caralina as successor using Cullen / Time: 4:00:00

Commander Cullen,

My husband informs me that I have your Inquisition’s soldiers to thank for the timely intervention that protected my carriage from an attack by ‘bandits’ not long ago. The roads are indeed dangerous these days, and as the Duchess of Lydes, I will do my best to improve their safety.

Please convey my gratitude to all who helped ensure my safety in these trying times.

Yours,
Duchess Caralina of Lydes
