During the conversation where Queen Onekaza II was offering me the quest, I picked a conversation option that told her 'I'll think about it'. My intention was to leave the conversation and make a save game before I committed to any particular faction. However, she no longer talks about the quest in dialogue, despite me saying I would think about it and come back. I cannot pick up Fruitful Alliance anymore, and after playing around, I don't believe that I can advance *any* of the factions at the point where I am in the story. I have the sneaking suspicion that I will need to create a new playthrough altogether if she won't give me this quest.
