The crew of the Fantoma Reine find themselves at the island of Klørbulg after a request from the leader of the Bodilsfolk. They are asked to remove an outside, an Ussuran Prince from a recently opened ancient Syrneth tomb in order to prevent his presence from starting a civil war. If they can carry out this favor, they will have the absolute commitment of the Bodilsfolk, and may have some sway with the Tilletsfolk, and a vital vote with the Vesten High Council in avoiding a long-standing and bloody conflict with Vendel.
Note: This episode was recorded with Mumble’s multitrack recorder and it just randomly decides to desync audio tracks. I did my best to keep everything aligned but a track still sometimes goes a second out of sync. We decided to stop using Mumble after this episode.
