  • Keen: You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.

            Tov: I see...

  • Keen: Would you secretly inform me about anyone on board this ship who you think is causing problems?

            Tov: ... No one should speak such a thing.

  • Keen: Then, would you tell me what you think of Lazlo?

            Tov: I believe he is a man undertaking an incredible endeavor...

  • Keen: Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.

            Tov: This ship... It seems it has a room that did not exist when it was designed. I am most sorry about that.

  • Keen: Then, I shall pass judgement!

            Tov: ... Thank you... Thank you very much...

            Tov: Nuuuwhoa!! I suppose this is another thing that cannot be helped...

So, this is the comment box. No comment.

Previously, in the Kingdom of Obel, there was a contest of shipwrights. I came in second, but for some reason, I was entrusted with the designing of this ship. I thank His Majesty for that.

Mushrooms and mint and... I was certain there was no room there when I designed it... where did it come from?
