Hello everyone, welcome to our Walkthrough for A Servant’s Resolve 1-5 of Dress up Time Princess. In the previous stage our character decided to join the military expedition bound for New World, and he and his friend, Alexander, went to sign up together. However, before Alfred signed up, he ran into Marquis de Lafayette, who recognized him and called him to his office for a private conversation. Alfred was very confused and anxious at first because he didn’t think that Lafayette would recognize him, let alone speak with him in private. Lafayette explains that he called him in because he wants to know why Alfred decided to join the expedition and quit his job at the palace. Alfred explained that the financial situation for non-nobles is becoming worse every day. Although he has a decent job at the palace, our character is ready to risk his life on the battlefield in hope that he will survive and earn a respectable amount of money, rather than starving and living with the very low wage that he currently earns. Lafayette didn’t realize that peasants are in such a bad situation. After thinking about it for a few moments, he welcomes Alfred with a smile, as the newest member of the expedition. 

The stage window will display all the relevant information. Hit Start when you are ready to begin.

After he signed up for the expedition, Alfred returned to the Palace of Versailles and continued working on his job like nothing had happened, awaiting the day when he will be called to board the ship and sail off to the mysterious new world. However, he still couldn’t stop thinking about Lafayette’s motives to abandon the comfortable life of a noble in order to join the war in the New World. Alfred became even more curious once he found out that the New World is much less developed compared to France, which means that Lafayette would live in much harsher conditions compared to luxurious food, soft bed, and other positive things that every nobleman in France enjoyed.

Alfred, lost in his thoughts about Lafayette and the New World, almost ran into a noble, but fortunately, he managed to step aside at the last moment. Naturally, our character immediately apologized, but the noble just ignored him and continued the conversation with his attendant. Being so close to them, Alfred managed to overhear a part of the conversation. Apparently, the noble was hoping to see the King, but after he found that King currently has the meeting with Marquis de Lafayette, he decided to go away and try to get the audience with the King another day.      

After hearing that Lafayette is currently talking to the King, Alfred decides to ask for a change of workplace in order to try to meet with Lafayette, once the meeting is finished. With this idea in mind, Alfred rushes to find George, his supervisor. After finding him, Alfred asks him to change his work area. George is a bit reluctant at first, but he finally decides to grant Alfred the transfer to a new area inside the palace.

Fortunately, Alfred managed to get the work area beneath the study, and now he plans to wait for the meeting above to end and try to have a word with Lafayette after that. But, George was a bit suspicious about Alfred requesting a transfer, and he comes to check on him. After he realized that Alfred is lost in his thoughts, George becomes even more suspicious. The supervisor gives him a quick warning, saying that he has to work hard because he can’t be seen standing idle near the King quarters. Apparently, a lot of nobles are frequently passing through this area, and Alfred could be in big trouble if somebody noticed that he is just standing around instead of working.

Now, the curious George wants to know why Alfred asked for a transfer to such an undesirable working position, because most servants are trying to be as far away as possible from nobles, and avoid working near the King’s study. George even joked about how Alfred wants to gain King’s favor. This joke upsets Alfred a bit, but he quickly calmed down.

Now, George becomes serious and asks why Alfred really wants to work in this position. Alfred thought about the answer for a second and decided that it would be best if he didn’t tell the truth. So, he just claims that he got bored doing his everyday work and wanted a change. George doesn’t believe him, but then Alfred explains that he became so bored that he even signed up for Lafayette’s expedition – knowing that mixing up some truth will make his lie more believable. George never heard of this expedition, so Alfred explains to him everything about it, just like Alexander told him earlier. Finally, he says, that soon enough, he will board the ship and head off to the New World to join the war.

George can’t believe what he just heard, and he thinks that Alfred is a complete idiot for wanting to resign his job at the palace in order to follow some crazy noble to war in a faraway land. Alfred is confused after hearing this, but Gorge calmly explains that working at the palace is one of the best positions that peasants could hope to achieve. Alfred agrees with this statement. To be fair, our character shouldn’t be surprised by the way George reacted, because he reacted in a similar manner once Alexander told him about the expedition for the first time.

After the initial shock, George starts to criticize after, explaining that the life of a peasant is much different from the life of a noble. He explains that Marquis de Lafayette is noble, and he and the other nobles can just enjoy life and have fun all day long, while peasants have to work from sunrise to sunset in order to survive. Alfred argues that’s exactly the reason why he wants to join this expedition. He wants to serve in the military for a few years and earn enough money to last him a lifetime.

George warns him that he could die on the battlefield without earning any money. But his next warning paints an even worse scenario. If Alfred suffers a serious injury, there’s no one to take care of him, while the nobles like Lafayette don’t have to worry about this scenario, since they will still have enough money to pay for the servants who could take care of them. In short, if Alfred suffers an injury that makes him unable to work, if he will be in serious trouble, and will most likely starve to death. Alfred is well aware that everything that George said is true, but he is just too tempted by the idea of joining the expedition and finally raising above the other peasants (financially). He concludes that he probably had the same opinion as George a week ago. But now, things have changed, and the prospect for a better future is too strong to look the other way and forget about it.  

Suddenly, they hear a loud crash from the King’s study. Unaware of what happened upstairs, both men instinctively look at the ceiling, curious about the noise coming from the room above them.

This will mark the end of A Servant’s Resolve Stage 1-5 of Dress up Time Princess. You will receive the following rewards for completing the stage.
