As with last season, Alex is spending much of her time in Merywyn. She’s keeping her finger on the pulse of the occupied capital, monitoring troop movements and morale as much as possible; as well as what rumors are been spoken about her principal’s employees, The Brass Orbs. She’s had some success building a network of spies and contacts, they are so far few, and largely incompetent, but she is looking to train them, as well as expand her network further.
Meanwhile, Gwyn is continuing to monitor Riversmet. With the aide of the first wave of Alex’s spies, she continues to keep an eye on the Khadoran fort as well as the forces of ‘Ragman’.
