I told you I was going to be picky
Twisted Evil This answer is very very close. But I am looking for a little bit more from the combination of 2 and 3 - that is my hint for now. I am not saying 2 and 3 are wrong...just looking for a little bit more...... I will provide another hint if you are scratching your head what you are missing.... [just smallish detail I consider important]

Good job on making it a challenge for me, Sam! I'm not easy to stump when it comes to Mordant's Need. I'll give your trivia question some more thought. Eureka

1) Lebbick was a farmer who had been married for ten days when a garrison commander of the Alend army took him and his wife prisoner, and Lebbick was forced to watch his wife be raped by Alends

2) He was freed by King Joyse and was allowed to take his revenge upon the Alend garrison commander

3) When Joyse saw the enthusiasm Lebbick had for punishing the commander, he put him to work as a soldier, and Lebbick gained promotions in that line of work because he was good at it.

Cord Hurn has it! Your question.

Just in case anyone missed the part I considered "missing" I was hoping to see something along the lines of enthusiasm or as the actual book quotes - zeal. To me that was a crucial missing detail. Lebbick could have just stabbed him in the back and went on his way but what caught the kings attention:

"The Castellan's voice sank as he spoke. "When he observed the zeal with which I took revenge upon the commander, he gave me work which put that zeal to good use."

Anyways Cord Hurn - your question.

Thank you, Sam! Certainly, "zeal" is a great word to describe the way Lebbick is protective of his King and country. Lebbick is certainly one of the most memorable SRD characters, and his zeal certainly has something to do with that.

My question:
When Queen Madin is told by Terisa and Geraden that her husband Joyse actually knows what he's doing and is feigning weakness, she determines to leave Vale House to rejoin him at Orison. How many days does she say she will make that journey in?

Not something I know off the top of my head, but the number three springs to mind.

Well, it was an educated guess, not a WAG. I was confident enough to share it, at least. Smile

Anyway, sticking with the Vale House scene. What shifted about Terisa's impression of the King's daughters once she met the Queen and Torrent?

Hmm... Could you be more specific? Before and after, please.

I think Terisa assumed when first meeting Elega and Myste, that they looked like their mother Queen Madin more than they resembled their father King Joyse.

Once she's met Queen Madin and Torrent, however, Terisa realizes that Elega and Myste favor Joyse in looks, and it's Torrent that looks more like Madin than Joyse.

Ooh, close. But not quite. I'll say the end result is correct, but the original impression/assumption not so much.

(The "right" answer was explicitly called out in the text, so I'm going to make sure I have it handy...)

Oh, perhaps it's that Terisa earlier thought that Elega took after Madin and Myste took after Joyse.
