Book II, canto xi Notes written by: Dylan Bias Notes edited by: Summary (100-150 words max): After their book-reading sleepover, Guyon and Palmer bid Arthur farewell, and leave. Then that familiar horde of raiders conveniently returns, and yet again lays siege to the castle. Seeing how this bums Alma out, Arthur rides out to fight the rabble rousers. They pester him for a bit, but it’s not until Malegar appears that the true battle begins. He rides up ragged looking and to his either sides are his wicked hag ladies, Impotence and Impatience.

One hag books, the other kills herself, and Arthur rides back to Temperance for some RNR. New characters introduced: • Maleger: A sort of zombie warlord, leads hordes against the House of Temperance.

But, they’re defeated along with Maleger, though instead of being thrown into the lake, one runs off screaming while the other killers herself Old characters returning: • Alma - Head of Ho
