A collage of images show Parson and Maggie perusing items in the Armory, observed by a grim-faced twoll. Maggie touches the haft of some unseen weapon as Parson inspects a spear and a ball-topped cane. Also on the long table are a sword, a C-shaped red bracelet, a red-heart-in-clear-heart amulet, and a blue bomb. Parson straps a large bracer bearing several blades to his right arm, then walks off wearing a light brown cloak. On top of this we see images of a long sword and Wanda's old skull-topped staff.|||
Prince Tramennis comes around to King Slately's side. Tramennis' many papers are now all stacked in the satchel on the desk; Slately's are still out.|||

Tramennis tugs at King Slately's hands to pull him out of his chair.|||
A closeup of Parson's grim face is laid against an image of him stalking the hallway with Maggie trailing meekly behind.|||
King Slately uses a hook to retrieve his red cape off of a standing coat tree while looking offscreen over his left shoulder.|||
