Lots of people were taken in by that treacherous sod, including the Queen, as she has since acknowledged publicly. So if this is an attempt to make my late brother seem foolish, forget it. The best people in all known universes have been taken in by betrayers in their time.
There were rumours of a dwarf uprising against the wizards in some kind of revenge attack but you stopped it.
Yes. I saw no benefit from my people being magically blasted away. In fairness it was also acknowledged not all wizards are self seeking, greedy or treacherous so even if we could have found a way around the obvious magical power discrepancy, it would not have been right to tar all wizards with the same brush.
Have you met Eileen?
Yes. She seems a determined character.
That's like describing Brankaresh as a bit dodgy...
Eileen had left the Kingdom, unofficially at least, long before I was elevated to my current position.
