"You are right, this is exceptional circumstances. With 12,000 crowns I would be able to 1200 men, that would be nearly 1,500 men to join your force. I am willing to give you the King's rate, as I see this as an action on behalf of the King, so the compensation would work out to 6,000 crowns. If you decide to go with this action I could have the whole force mobalised almost immediately to join yours. Are you willing to make such a great expense?"
OOC: Whats the policy in fighting in two theaters at once. If I am involved in the battle outside Lincoln, which I think will result in a retreat anyway. Can I join the expedition to save the King?
