King Arthur sends Valiant and Gawain with a party including Arn and Rowanne near the Venecombs' land where Sir Lyman has gotten word that they wish to forge a treaty. While there, Valiant, Arn, and Rowanne gain possible evidence that someone in the nearby primitive community is plotting to assassinate King Arthur. Unable to convince those in the camp, they approach Queen Guinevere when she arrives with King Arthur the next day. She secretly lets them enter the Venecomb village undercover and learn that their former leader, now regarded among his people as a betrayer for his diplomatic ideals, has been replaced by a tyrannical one who has dark intentions. And it seems that an outsider has been encouraging and assisting him to fight. Written by
