If you opt to find the arsonist during the last event, this event will trigger.

Captain, we've caught the man who set fire to the lord's house. He is one of our people, and he's unrepentant.

I did what had to be done. We have to get rid of the lords. They don't belong here.

You have the following options:

  • Banish him: This person will leave the city forever.
  • Let him go: Hope will fall

The tempers are running high. If we don't resolve the conflict the city can descend into lawlessness... which will ultimately end in violence.

Massacre[edit | edit source]

Class Conflict - Massacre.png

If you do not complete the quest objective in time, this will conclude your arc.

Many men, women and children have fallen victim to your rule. Innocent blood has tainted the foundations of the city we have built with so much hard work.

Working people and lords can't live side by side - we ve learned that the hard way. Still, we can't help but look back and wonder if things could've been done differently... That question will haunt us for the rest of our lives.

You have the following options:

  • Nothing can be done

We are divided[edit | edit source]

Class Conflict - We are divided.png

If you complete the quest objective in time, but sub optimally, this will be your arc ending.

We tried to reconcile our differences with the lords, but it proved impossible in the end. A new order had to be established. We are the masters now, and the lords are our servants.

Perhaps mutual mistrust doomed the idea of equality from the start. Either way, we are not united and we may never be.

You have the following options:

  • We did what had to be done

We are equal[edit | edit source]

Class Conflict - We are equal.png

If you complete the quest objective in an optimal manner, this will be your arc ending. Optimal appears to be lynching Lord Craven while resolving the Quarrel in the cookhouse peacefully.

We've let everyone in and started to build a world where people are not judged by their social class, but by their actions. We hope that the memory of the enmity between our people will soon fade away.

For the first time we have a chance to stand united.

You have the following options:

  • Well done
