Alain and Judith at feast The following day, bestowing an AoA to Lady Bebhinn. She made the garb worn by TRM in this

As their second court neared it's end, the wind began to pick up. TRM and their retainers barely made it back to their cabin when the skies opened up and a mini-tornado screamed through camp. These pictures were taken of one of their retainers' car, which was parked just outside the royal cabin. After it was over, Alain walked through the entire campground to make sure everyone was alright. Luckily, there were no serious injuries, although someone did get hit pretty hard with a flying branch.

starting the procession Judith's horse was quite unruly Prince Toirdhealbhach in some very nice sunglasses. His Queen "requested" that he remove them if he wished to participate in the procession

In preparation for the end of Alain and Judith's reign, a treasonous letter signed by the Prince was circulated at Gulf Wars.(Unfortunately, due to the rain and subsequent mass exodus, most people never read it!) Alain "finds" a copy of this letter, and prepares to confront His Highness about it in court (is this about that sunglasses thing?). However, the Heirs are prepared, and poison him before he can act. Queen Judith rushes to his side, and checks for any sign of breathing with a small mirror. She finds none.

Final court

just before the final court of Alain and Judith Judith confirms Alain's death

Judith decides that discretion is the better part of valor, and decides to abdicate in return for a guarantee of safety. Just as The new Crown is granting her lands in the form of a small County, Alain's long-lost brother Gaston shows up and claims the throne of Trimaris. King Toirdhealbhach helps him to see that he is mistaken (with the aid of a few brawny guards). As a compromise, Judith decides to share her new lands with Gaston, and all ends well.
