A Gift for Stagonia

A maid cleaning at the grounds of the Stagonian ruler's palace discovered a box left upon one of the verandas, which upon opening proved to be a bowl of figs floating in goat's milk. A note within was written in an unidentified hand, stating simply "Your interferences are unwanted." Curiously, the note was sealed with a crudely carved approximation of the personal signet of Count Rudolf von Drednoz, one of Stagonia's chief agitators in foreign affairs.

When informed, the PfalzGraf muses, "Hmmmm, we sent figs to several parties . . . I wonder which one of them divined that it was us?

You! Fetch Baron Gustav von Rumpel!."

When the vile Baron arrives, the PfalzGraf inquires as to which nations Count Rudolf von Drednoz has had recent contact with . . . .
