Why can you not travel freely? I know of no reason why not. If any of my men have opposed you, then I shall ensure they are... enlightened as to their errors.
I did NOT elect myself. I was elected by the will of the people. Please do not make this mistake again. It is one that greatly irritates me.
When I performed the ritual to which you refer, I was attempting to open the results of the election of the Larkants to them, to prove I was due their respect. However, interference by you heroes ruined it, leaving them as useless thralls, rather than the free thinking individuals that I was hoping would abide by the will of their majority.
Sadly, even I lack the power to correct two rituals combining the power of myself, the god of magic, and the being that went on to be the god of rituals briefly. I am doing what I can to correct that, but it is a very long process, and one that will have more problems before it is solved.
As for the villages? Information is as yet incomplete. Given the tendency of heroes to go off and kill my men as soon as anything happens, I see no reason to share what information I do have. I am sure your colleagues will find reason enough for bloodshed at the expense of the Telerfret empire either way, though.
So then he goes, YOU SHALL NOT PASS, and I say "I've got WINGS? I can FLY?" It was hilarious! The dwarf was tough, but the elf was delicious and they had some men and these four bite-sized guys, too. The wizard was fuming when I flew off.
