A Princess of Landover

Answer: Near Waynesboro, Virginia

To get to the kingdom, head north on Skyline Drive from Waynesboro, Virginia about twenty miles, until you see a small green sign with the number 13 lettered in black, a weather shelter and a telephone. It's right up in the woods at the end of the trail - if you're allowed to find it, that is.

7. "A Princess of Landover" starts with Princess Mistaya being suspended from Carrington Women's Preparatory School for scaring student, Rhonda Masterson, half to death. What did Misty do that was so frightening?

From Quiz A Princess of Landover

Answer: Conjured up an image of Strabo the dragon

Mistaya's parents thought it would be good for her to experience the outside world and be around girls her own age, so they sent her to a New England prep school. Misty, however, wanted to do it on her own terms. The incident with Rhonda Masterson was the third strike against her. She had flaunted school regulations twice previously and didn't seem to be learning from her transgressions, so Ms Appleton suspended her until she could behave in a manner appropriate for Carrington's.

During the interview Meeks asks Ben how old he is. Ben replies that he will be forty in January. Meeks then says: "A good age. ... A man's still got his strength at forty.

15. Ch 3: Landover What does the entrance into Landover look like in our world?

From Quiz Magic Kingdom For Sale - Sold!

Answer: A tunnel through a tree

When Ben is hiking into Landover, he finally gets to the point where the trail crosses over into the fairy mists - but only for the holder of the medallion. The entrance is described like this: "A wall of towering, rugged oak rose before him, shrouded in layers of shadow. A tunnel had been cut through the center, hollowed out as if by giant's hands. The tunnel was dark and empty, a black hole without end, a burrow that ran on into trailers of mist, stirred by invisible hands. Sounds drifted from out of the black, distant and unidentifiable." Creepy, huh?

28. Ch 5: Sterling Silver Why is Ben's castle, Sterling Silver, dying?

From Quiz Magic Kingdom For Sale - Sold!

Answer: Because the magic is failing

The magic of the land is failing because there has been no real king for twenty years. Questor calls the discoloration, gloom and disrepair that has affected the castle "the Tarnish" and describes its beginning: "When the last true King of Landover died twenty years ago and no heir ascended to the throne, the discoloration began. It was gradual at first, but quickened as time passed and no King ruled. The life goes out of Sterling Silver and the Tarnish marks her failing. No amount of cleaning or scrubbing or polishing of stone, wood, and metal can restore her. ...She dies, High Lord. She follows her Lord to the grave." Sad, isn't it?
