Beginning log

To liberate the people of the Western Isles once and for all, Roy headed for Juteaux, the Isles' largest city. The Etrurian capital was located there. Lord Arcardo, the supervisor of the mining operation on the Isles, resided in Juteaux. According to Elffin, Arcardo was of high birth, but he held no importance in the Etrurian court. Roy was still worried about Etruria's response to his attacking the capital, but he had no choice if he was going to rescue the people.

It is suggested to bring a Mage as Ein's resistance is much lower than his defense.
