Well, that went better than he expected.

Now that he's got the really IMPORTANT matter out of the way, he'll have an easier time of it discussing the LESSER matters that occurred.

I find myself liking this king, though I imagine getting through longer conversations with him might be a pain.

Out of curiosity, is the title of the page a pun, or a typo (pattern-ity vs. paternity)?

I imagine the elven king speaking in Ian McDiarmid's Emperor Palpatine voice. I reckon he started doing it to annoy people like his daughter, but he continues doing it because it's fun.

New visitor here! Doesn't he have other siblings? Not to mention, possibly they could simply introduce sperm to egg and have a surrogate. And then there are future Marelle and Zintiel.

First off, welcome! I have to say, those all sound more complicated than adoption Very Happy
Also I'm not sure I understand what Future Marelle and Zintiel have to do with anything

Hi! Well, designating one of his nieces or nephews as his heir should be even simpler than adoption, if there's a bloodline issue. And they are an advanced society, so advanced that the Oracles just tried to destroy them. My choice of imagining is that creating an heir, even perhaps one who is offspring of both Prince Lumigardo and Arlen, should be possible. After all, in humans most males have an X and a Y. Maybe these elves are the same. All they need to do is choose daughter or son...

The second part was a tangent, feel free to ignore it. Unless they work for the Oracles or something!

I have a feeling we've already seen one of his siblings make a play for power.
