The Harts host a moot in the region of Kithlannen, a strange city that emerged from stasis, placed there to protect an ancient weapon. With Aethelwalds’ forces holding the city and the Albion liberation front taken under his wing, the Harts work to defeat him, aided by allies from across Erdreja. A vision of this and another enemy aids the Harts in seeing victory on the battlefield. Upon its recapture Lord High Seneschal Raphael declares that the area is henceforth to be know as Lancaster.
While the Turnkey Court attempt to hold sway over the Harts, their messengers are destroyed on sight.
The Watchers confirm that the Albion transport network is back up and running, with several changes made since the problems of 1118.
