"I guess your right...
So your going to be leading the Jokensburg soon
A new leader must learn from his elders
Most of the time from his father
So would you like to shadow me in the daily job of a leader?
"i must say im rather unexperinced in this field and some training would be....needed"
*Peter takes him to the government building*
"Where are we?"
"Oh this is the Center of government
In the capital Corax
We are just gonna be watching what is happening while i explain things leaders do"
Peter sits down and watches the parliment come together discussing what to do with Honorgrad
Like problems they are facing and issues they are dealing with
"The assimilation of Retalian citizens is going well, no rebellions have been made since the the first"
"The HIR is becoming unstable and it is hard to keep it as a functioning union"
(Does neo have any questions?)
"Why is the HIR....disfunctional"
"After the last battle
The Kooferists took charge and neutered the Catholics power
The predecessor of your Jokensburg died because of the battle...
*Peter starts to go into a flash back*
...as did many other princes
The emperor died and no one really knows what to do with it
But i have faith in your that you'll be able to succeed where i have failed
You can unite the HIR as long as you have the determination to do so
And thats why im trying to teach you this stuff"
"by force probably"
"Force isnt the only way one can unite a people
There is diplomacy
There are countless ways to make an empire
I hope you chose one that fits you"
"But they all fail force is the only permanant solution"
"That may be
But sometimes an old man like me likes to believe in people"
"People always betray you...most of them atleast"
But some don't
Some are loyal till death
I have been on the opposite end of that spectrum
And that is a shame i will never overcome..."
"It was necessary which justfies it"
"It may have been
But a promise is a promise
Which i broke mine...
Now let me ask you a question.
If I the leader of a nation
Who has kept my promises my whole life
Breaks one promise once
Then whos to say i havent broken promises before?
Whose to say i can be trusted in the future?"
"Whos right to question your rule?
If it is necessary then it shall be broken
If a friend is dangerous or stands in the way then he is to be taken out"
"A leaders power comes from the people
Never forget that
Your job is to keep them safe and happy
If they dont trust you then you are doomed"
"The masses can be misslead misguided and lied to they are but a mere tool for those superiour"
What are you talking about?
You dont know what its like to be them
I know what its like
I knew how it was to be hungry
To be poor
You live up here with your silver spoon stuck in your mouth
You aren't superior to anybody by birth
Its what effort you make in life that shows your true colors"
"Not by birth but by actions not everyone is equal and to say otherwise is naive not everyone is a bright mind no
The poor are the easiest to lie to and trick
They always fall for the socialist
Time and time again"
"Watch your tounge neo!
Many in honorgrad have economic hardship and we shouldn't lie or decieve them
We should be proping them up
Helping them get back on their feet
And if they don't take the opprotunity then they are left to rot on the streets
But dont say they don't try
Cause i know what its like
I have perspective neo
Something you'll wish you had in the future"
"But it is true!
Revolution starts when the masses are hungry
Because the revolutionaries offer change
You dont see anyone demanding freedom and democracy unless they were hungry or being taxed
Im not saying they arent trying
Im saying the masses need a leader someone with enough skill and competence not elected as those elected are the ones who make promises the masses like not what the masses need"
"I suppose that is correct but people dont like it when you force them into something"
