Jenny wants nothing to do with Kingdom life though there are many aspects of it she’d like. She’d love the Palace grounds, she’d get on well with most villagers and the landscapes in many regions are truly amazing. The Kingdom is slowly coming round to the idea of Jenny being part magical. Alas she has not come around to the idea of the Kingdom taking an interest in her. FNN and Roherum especially has a good sense for which way the wind is blowing and has effectively taken the Queen’s hint that Jenny is to be “sold” as a potential asset to the realm. Most in the Kingdom can see right through this but they can see Jenny’s usefulness, if only in reining in Eileen a bit, something to salute the girl for as nobody else has been able to do this.
The magic in the realm’s atmosphere, which everybody breathes in (and their bodies use in different ways, hence the species’ varying magical gifts) is strengthened by the major species’ development of new spells and the planting of certain plants, trees and herbs in huge clumps. These latter items contribute most of the ingredients for spells. The larger the clump, the bigger the concentration of magic. In the heart of the Palace is a machine (developed by various Chief Wizards) which monitors the amount of magic in the air (similar to our pollen counting systems). If the levels go too high (usually due to war), land becomes barren, crops are destroyed and the wars are brought to a close as nobody wants to see the realm destroyed and magic has to be taken out of the system until levels are back to an acceptable reading. FNN report on the magic count as part of the weather bulletins every night. People get twitchy if the readings go up more than three days in a row. It means trouble literally is brewing.
