New question: The first time Lebbick tries to arrest Terisa is in response to his finding evidence he feels implicates Terisa as a conspirator against Mordant. What is the evidence he finds?

I'll let some other folks tiptoe around this before I wade through the mess.

If I remember correctly it was after the attack in the hallway and Prince Kragan and his men were there.

Terisa gets stained by some bloodshed. the Castellan searches her room and finds blood on footwear and I also think some clothing? Also some blood stained footsteps in Terisa's size near the attack location (or was it near her room? - pretty sure near attack scene

Confused )

He accuses her of being conspirator because she never reports all this and her proximity to perceived enemy of Mordant (Kragan)

Terisa washes the blood out of her clothes, but didn't get the blood out of her footwear. Castellan Lebbick find the bloodied footwear (leather moccasins, I think they were). So, you've got the answer, samrw3, and well done!!! STANDING OVATION!

Thanks Cord Hurn! Very Happy

I believe you that they are standing Laughing Big Grin

I don't know how easy this question is - my guess is easy to you Mordant's Need experts. However, this is one of my favorite scenes so I am going to ask it anyways just for fun.

HOW AND WHERE did Adept Havelock endanger the life of future King Joyse.

Bonus points of WHY did Adept Havelock take the risk.

I can attest that the Mordant's Need books are fun to reread, Hunchback Jack! Many richly detailed characters, with lots of interesting interactions between them! Reading Mr. Green

I should try to come up with a stable response that doesn't leave anybody cold towards me.

I've read them maybe three or four times, if I recall correctly, but probably not once in the last 20 years. I think I've read all SRD's other (SF/Fantasy) novels in that timeframe, just not this series, for some reason. This quiz is motivating me to change that!

(I've also been meaning to reread the Ginny/Axbrewder novels at some point).

I thank you! Will be posting an answer to the question by early next week if no one else guesses it by then.

I hadn't realized you had already re-read Mordant's Need, Hunchback Jack! I've read MN six times, now, and am thinking about another re-read within the next 2-3 years. I've enjoyed reading it every time. As for the Ginny & Mick mystery books written by SRD: I liked them okay, but the only one I really liked was the fourth, The Man Who Fought Alone. Just my opinion, of course.

So, is the trick now to indicate that one knows the answer by some subtle clue, but let some other poor sap answer it so they have to ask the next one? Razz

Not so much that, as it is sharing the fun and not wanting to monopolize the quiz as a back-and-forth between two people.

But, that said, coming up with the subtle clues is its own form of fun. Smile

In line with the previous, I think we have enough folks engaged to move this forward. Smile

So, in answer:
Havelock knew that the constant back and forth war was counterproductive, and could see that the young Joyce had the potential to tip the balance. He wanted to cast an Augury to help advise and guide the new king, but could not get an image any closer to the castle. He took the baby out to the image center, cast the Augury, and recovered the child, but not before he took a chill and subsequently became very ill.

Correct Irrational Sanity!!! You Rock Nana Party

From the book:

"So one black night soon after he was born, I stole little Joyse from his cradle and take him down to the stables and risked leaving him there alone in a pile of straw while I raced back to my small laborium to work the augury.
"He took cold and nearly died - but I got what I wanted""

So please don't think I am too crazy but for some reason this story is a little humorous to me. I just think of the Adept sneaking a baby down to a pile of straw in the middle of night...I mean come on that is funny image to envision in your mind. All right , all right - I'm crazy Shocked

Your question IS!

Well, it isn't the first time we have a story about a future king being laid in straw in the stables. (Not for the same reasons, but hey, you can't make the parallels too close... Smile

Next question, following the same line as the previous:

Havelock's Augury, once cast, was particularly frustrating for what reason?

I agree with Sanity on both statements, Av! I don't want to monopolize the trivia by jumping at the answer before anyone else has a chance, and yet I want to assure the questioner that the question isn't being ignored--I actually pay fairly close attention to this thread! And also, IrrationalSanity has shown me that leaving clues in our response statements can indeed be some fun! Banana 7-up
