Razum-dar tasks the Vestige with attending a meeting between Shimmerene's elite regarding the queen's recent decree to allow newcomers onto the island of Summerset. Canonreeve Elquisa is present at the meeting.
The Queen's DecreeEdit
- You seem to be taking the business of the Queen's decree rather lightly. "Am I? Some probably see it that way. What do I care? I'm the canonreeve of Shimmerene! Kinlady Avinisse may outrank me, but I'm the one who keeps the city's bureaucracy functioning smoothly. It's what I do. What were we talking about again?"
- Do you know what the Kinlady plans to do about the Queen's decree? "Complain, most likely. My cousin excels at that! I assume she may have something else worked out with the new Aldarch, but she has yet to bring me into her confidence on the matter. Frankly, I assumed that's why we were here."
- What's a canonreeve? "I'm a canonreeve, my dear. I thought we established that. It's an official title, given to diplomats and bureaucrats who administer to county seats. A gift from my cousin Avinisse, I suppose. In your land, I'd probably be called the mayor."
