Zil’dejin’s decision to become a figurehead emperor for the Magebred leads to a lengthy discussion with Vorril about the nature of the almost feudal government system that has been established in Metrol and the actual power of holding the throne. While this occurs, the rest of the party goes to see if Elde, one of the few remaining Magebred lords, is still alive, and if so, convince her to support Zil’dejin’s bid for emperor.
They find Elde in the dungeon of the Fourth Palace, protected by Meazels who do not appear to be aware that their master, Lythanis, is dead. The four battle the Meazels, who are not particularly skilled and mostly rely on specially-contained Dead Gray Mist from the Mournland borders. They free a half elven bard who is unaffiliated with the Magebred, as well as Elde herself. Having lost just about everything she owns, she sees no alternative to supporting Zil’dejin, and pledges to do just that.
