I belive David D. has written that if you are the king of your clan and the end game has started, then your king will not die.

Just an update on my no-save hard long game. I found I couldn't do it. I finally did the save and restore shuffle in order to do a hero-quest. I found I was failing 4 hero-quests for every one I succeeded. Besided waiting 3 years after a failure and learning the secrets and bringing helpers...What can I do to improve my chances at a heroquest? I hate to have a single decent(very good or above) warrior and have to try the Elmal or Humakt quests.

One of the things the games does do very well is simulate some of the problems of a council leading a group of people. You just can't do everything you want to do.

On another note what are the triggers for the Feathered Horse Queen?
