I am sure your troops mass along our borders for the most innoccent of reasons. I am present at the holy emperor's command only to bear the most pressing reassurances that we cannot be held accountable for any accidents or incidents that befall your army. We know internal dissent wracks your lands, and we are aware that your rumormongers seek to blame such disturbances on this holiness's agents.

Even if you could produce such evidence, what would it gain you? The empire's legions outnumber yours, our wizards can crush your simple court magician with a thought, and the trade cartels need our ports, not yours. Your armor and blade have have served you in your youth, but now you are at our mercy. Hunting dragons has taught you how to swing a blade, but you'll find this talents useless now. One man in a sea of swords means nothing to an empire.
