We got what we wanted from the bandit's corpses and interrogate one of the living ones. We raid their bases take the gold the go with the merchants as a guard at the rear guard with Isis.
After about an hour, I got used to talking to Isis a bit. I learned a bit about the cities overall structure. Apparently, this city is called Falter city of the Millea Kingdom, it is one of the main trading cities in the Millea Kingdom due to its location and the four forests adjacent to it making it have tons of herbs and monsters. It also has a one hundred floor dungeon and a deal with its dungeon master, it is like the second capital of the Millea Kingdom. It is ruled by Duke Philler Millea the older brother of the current king. It has a population of over 60 thousand in the main city and in his whole territory a little over 250 thousand with the whole kingdom over a million.
He gave up his right to the throne after falling in love with his current wife and retiring from seventy years as a general. If he was a human he would have grown old but he is a half dragon elf who'll live for millennia easy with a shot for immortality and his wife is a high elf with no definite life span.
Talking about his wife, her name is Tallia Millea and was an adventurer who took a request from the military during a war and during the battle was saved by Philler. This was the first time they met and where their story started. After the battle, he had her taken to his tent and requested a long term request as his personal guard as he wasn't able to be honest with his feelings right away. Over time the two of them became closer and closer where at some point King Millea told them to just get married and forced Philler to retire. Now the two of them are famous because they flirt while shopping and as great rulers. At the moment there are no children but there is a rumor from the maids that work there that you can hear them in the servant area at night.
The King and Duke actually have a really good relationship and don't talk how nobles normally would as the King still calls the Duke aniki. The King is a high elf a little over 60 years old and was taught magic by Mother apparently. The current King has only been king for 15 years after the previous king retired to an island he bought from his wealth from when he was an adventurer almost a thousand years prior.
Andria and I continue to listen to history and gossip until we reach the city.
At the gate.
"Hello, I need to do a quick check for your carriages. Please wait patiently."
Twenty minutes later
"I'll check your IDs"
"Sorry the two of us don't have IDs," Andria spoke up to get the attention of the knight.
"No worries, if you pay the fine we'll give you a temporary pass until you get one."
"I'll do that, thanks."
"Please come with me."
We walk inside the guard stations to a room with an orb on a pedestal.
"Please put your hand on the crystal and fill it with your magic power."
Andria and I comply and put our hand and fill it in turns.
"What does this do?"
"It was created and spread about a month ago by the royal alchemist and it determines if you have a bounty or if you have committed a crime within the last year. The intensity of the light will tell how bad the crime was, and the color will change if you are unaware that you committed a crime. You don't need to worry it didn't glow so I'll prepare the temporary IDs. I'll tell you if you don't return it in a week we'll fine you again so be careful."
We meet up with Isis and head into the city after getting the bounties from the guards.
