Mr. Feist goes into macroeconomics on protagonist #1 Roo to loan money to his government to upcoming war with Emerald Queen's army. Most fantasy authors rarely goes into how to pay for a war & behind the scenes logistics. Kudos for him.
There's a economic limit from raising taxes on a purely agricultural based economy.
Meanwhile, Eric rises up from the rank in the army to scout & harass the Emerald's queen army as part of long term indirect strategy.

Roo Avery, recently returned from a harrowing brush with the armies of the Emerald Queen, is now free to choose his own destiny and his ultimate ambition is to become one of the richest and most powerful merchants in Midkemia.

But nothing can prepare him for the dangers of the new life he has chosen where the demand for repayment of a debt can be as deadly as a knife in the shadows. Even those closest to him are suspect and as Roo struggles to build his financial empire, betrayel is forever close at hand. His instinctive cunning will serve him well, but he will soon realise that the road to success is far from smooth.

And while Roo works towards achieving his goal, the memory of the distant forces of darkness are never far away. For the war with the Emerald Queen is far from over and the inevitable confrontation will pose the biggest threat yet to his new found wealth and power.
