THE BEST LAID PLAN is a plan that is well planned, and has been laid out since the beginning. The High King and the Commissioner planned it all. When the battle reached its height and the two friends were called upon to do their best, they could not fail, they had to succeed. After all the traveling they knew that the most important thing was to deliver the satchels to the King. Tsami knew they must contain vital battle plans that the High King must have at all costs. After all he was always secretly with them, whenever they were stuck, he always seemed to send help, and he always knew where they were. Something always ate at them though, and was in fact suggested by Tsado, why, if the High King was so powerful, couldn't he deliver them himself? Who is Old Count Nick? He seems to be more than a match for their puny weapons, or is he? The King's Courtroom. Why does it look so familiar, his courtiers, he knows them surely!
