Meanwhile, Itami, got sacked and relieved of his command (for abandoning his post to kill the dragon...despite the wink and the nod he received prior) . He was also presented with multiple medals, awards as well as titles of nobility (and a slave girl!?) from the locals. Itami is told to just "go out and explore". He is to keep reconnoitering the new world paying special attention to its resources. Thus he decides to accompany Leili on her journey since she's really useful to have around a city of mages sounds potentially facinating and rich in a resource that warrants some study. Rory is along because, I gather, she wants to desecrate a local shrine and the jeep beats walking, Yao insists on coming because she's the aforementioned slave girl (WTF!?). Tuka tags along for...reasons. Leili brings a letter of recommendation from her teacher which is sufficiently glowing to get her an audience.
The result of this is that the group is nowhere NEAR the Imperial capital when Princes PenÃ£ throws a diplomatic soiree involving the Emperor and a bunch of minor characters that successfully kicks off the peace talks. With our heroes, the chaos magnets, on the other side of the Empire, and the Japanese ambassador and PenÃ£ overseeing the event, odds seem pretty good that nothing can go wron...

@ Steven: What did I get wro....Ah HA. A particularly cunning spoiler tag trap. Masterfully done sir. Touche'.
@ Ben: Yes, because she has made arrangements to eat his soul and the more great deeds he does before he dies, the better he will taste, so he's kind of like Sous-vide or (Itami dearly hopes) a wine that she wants to have aged.
@AvatarX: Yes! Yes it is.

sorry, that should have been below me. And yet I wrote this before I clicked "post".
