  • He does a lot of fighting on opening night, wins 75GP

  • Aldo’s not discreet, he tells Roland about plan to go see Gen. Boua
  • Roland thinks they should go tell Fallworth about his plan
  • Wouldn’t he love to get the extra intel Aldo could provide?
  • Fallworth doesn’t like the plan
  • They already have a ton of spies tracking Boua’s movements
