Merrick: Tell us how your plan begins!
Owain: How do you prepare for your feast?
Balen, You find yourself approaching a wing of the central palace that unlike the other two is completely unguarded. Knocking brings no response, though you can hear faint muffled voices. When you do enter, you find the insides are in good condition, well cared for. Continuing through you find private gardens, with a door leading into the central palace. Here, you find the trial you are to attend. There are twenty one knights, each in full armour here, and only two - Sir Hamm and Sir Estève that you recognise. Most of them nod in greeting however, the others who are closest to you stand to give you a fraternal hug. Those who don’t know your name simply greet you as “Brother”
The knights are seated in a large circle, and in the centre is a cage, though it is currently empty. Squires move from the interior of the wing to their respective knights, bringing refreshments and people are making general conversation. You notice that some of the knights wear red flowers in their hair, Sir Hamm is one of them, Sir Estève is not. Sir Hamm and Sir Estève however, are seated next to each other. There is seemingly no chair for yourself.
