This question is the continuity of "How do I escape my Knight duties".
We're in a country that share many similarities with 16th century scotland.
I'm a local lord and I noticed, this morning, that my daughter and main military leader is missing. Last info I have is that she left the family house by the front door, on foot, in the middle of the night.
If this situation lasts long enough, I will not be able to hide this from my liege, she'll be considered a deserter and exposed to much severe consequences.
Her assets :
- She knows the country
- She has military training
- I'll delay informing my hierarchy as long as I reasonnably can
My assets :
- I am wealthy and willing to pay.
- I have manpower of my own.
- People from nearby villages probably know what she looks like.
What are the means I have at my disposal to get her back as soon as possible, unharmed, and as discreetly as possible ?
If the first part of the plan fails, and the government takes charge of it, what mesures will be applied to retrieve her ?
More important :
What are the odds for her to get caught and will it be increasing or decreasing with time ?
