The Royal Missive is a document to be presented to an NPC from a king. It is a set of instructions to be presented to an NPC to allow access to a new part of the world map previously blocked off from the player, with the one exception being in its second appearance.
King Norman of Endor wants to prevent a war between his country and the neighboring Ballymoral after Torneko reads the Prince's letter in his throne room, written by Prince Regan of the latter nation to warn him of the ambitions of his father King Shamus.
Thinking quickly and recognizing the love his daughter Veronica has for the foreign prince, King Norman drafts a letter explaining the circumstances to his would-be conqueror with the intent to diffuse the situation. The scroll is given to Torneko on the instructions of presenting it to King Shamus directly. Upon reading the message, King Shamus calls off his plans as he now believes that the territory will fall under Ballymoral's control as soon as his grandchildren come of age.
