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. Craftreeve Midalmo is present at the meeting.
The Queen's DecreeEdit
- What do you think the Kinlady is planning? "Everyone knows what the Kinlady thinks of the Queen's decree. I suppose she plans to oppose the new policy. Keep more nebarra from reaching our shores. Somehow. I just hope she doesn't do anything that ruins our expanded trade agreements."
- How do you feel about the Queen's decree? "That's a loaded question, nebarra. Look, I get as nervous as a pigeon in a gryphon aerie just thinking about having a lizard living right next door, but I can't argue with the Queen's success. The expanded trade agreements have been a star-send!"
- What does that word mean, nebarra? "Nebarra? Well, I suppose that's our word for the newcomers. I guess you could say it's impolite, but old habits can be hard to break. No offense. Look, I don't have an issue with the newcomers. Some of my best workers weren't born on the island."
