Special Sub-Topic: 'The Two Princesses of Bamarre'
|What did Meryl and Addie NOT pretend was the cure for the Gray Death?|
A fiery stone. Addie would pretend to be weak, then turn gray, then chatter her teeth. When she was 'on the brink of death', Meryl would cure her miraculously.
|What did Trina, Addie's chambermaid, complain about when she got the Gray Death?|
The pillow. She said that the pillow was too hard and that she should have a better one because of her illness. Meryl jumped up at once to get one.
|What color were Rhys' eyelashes?|
Pure white. 'His eyes were compelling-large and blue, ringed by the thick white lashes all sorcerers have.'
|What color was the stone in the castle?|
coral. Addie was embroidering a view of Bamarre Castle and the description was:'a close view of one of the gargoyles that adorned Bamarre castle. The rest of the castle was visible in the background-the coral-colored stone walls, the blue tower roofs, the slitted upper windows, and the vaulting arches between tower and buttress.'
|In which book did Addie look up sorcerers?|
'The Book of Beings'. There was a short article in the book about sorcerers.
|What is the average height of a female sorcerer?|
5'10. Males were supposed to be about 6'2. Whew, that's tall!
|What flowers were in bloom when Addie came across Rhys in the garden?|
|What color were the curls on the child-specter whom Addie met?|
Amber curls. They were described as 'amber curls, mussed a little'. Of course, they weren't really mussed, it was just the specter's trick.
|In one part of the book, Meryl was trying to assemble a battle plan. How many knights were involved?|
40. There were 40 knights against 7 ogres. Meryl was trying to explain this to Addie, who wasn't listening.
|What kind of plant grew on the walls of the old courtyard?|
None of these. Grapevines grew on the walls, actually.
|What was ONE of the names of the Drualt's legs?|
|What were the names of the Drualt's arms?|
|What was not part of Yune's hoard?|
Tiara of emeralds. It was a tiara of diamonds. The other thing in Yune's hoard was knights' bones, gnawed white. The maidens' bones were charred black.
|The first time Addie used the tablecloth, what was being served for dessert?|
|When she left, what did Addie pack into her sewing basket, just before the magic tablecloth?|
The magic cloak. First she packed her sewing things,then her clothes, then the maps, next the cloak, then tablecloth, and on top of that, 'Drualt'. Finally she buried the wool from Rhys at the very bottom.
|What color did Addie's shoulder NOT turn after the ogre pulled it?|
Blue. It was swelling very badly, so Addie put some of the moily herb in her mouth and fell asleep. When she woke up, her shoulder was better.
|When, supposedly, was the dwarf queen ceremony?|
Every 200 years. Of course, it wasn't really Rhys, just the specter. Addie was furious when she found out.
|How many years before the story takes place was Orne supposedly wed to a human?|
300. Orne was not really married to a human, it was another of the specter's lies.
|Which weapon was NOT found in a cabinet in Vollys' lair?|
A dagger. It was one of the many cabinets that were on the walls. However, Vollys did not let Addie get her hands on a sword.
|When trapped in Vollys' lair, Addie looked through her spyglass. What color was the chair in which Meryl was sitting?|
Red. By that time, Meryl's teeth were chattering, and her face was ashy gray. Milton was putting a compress on her forehead.
