- Vlad asks to join, a Conclave will be held.
- Aujaq gets into an argument about the ‘history’ of the settlers driving out his people.

- Royal Castle built on old buried structures – tribal stories tell of holy rituals..
- They talk to Regina – who is excited by their stories and offers to arrange a meeting with the queen.
- Queen Malene is a young girl (late teens, early 20’s) – very beautiful and charismatic.
- She’s looking for “people of action” to work for her – offers a trial reqest.
