When you first get into Flotsam, Roche identifies himself as Emhyr var Emereis to the guard who asks us our names. I'm assuming this is done to NOT attract attention to himself, after all he is the leader of the Blue Stripes... but I don't understand how the guard believed that because Emereis is actually the Emperor of Nilfgaard! And not only that, Roche says he's a spice merchant?
WTF? I'm only picking up on this now. If anything that would cause more commotion - the fucking Emperor of Nilfgaard in Flotsam.
