So now you can finish chapter 6 if you want to and we can move into chapter 7.
We are 1 season from tribunal.
When the others arrive, they can have some unskilled workers, some craftsmen and a few hired swords with them, plus a few wagonloads of building and lab materials. If no one details them, I'll details them and deduct the cost from your leftover money.
This chapter can either serve to inform you on the progress made by Arturous and Hildegard (which won't take long) - and then we jump to the tribunal (chapter 8), or we can play it out.
