    Well, he has 'dragon' in his name, doesn't he?

    90) The Prince and the Pauper

    A high ranking member of the court decided they wanted to escape their more tedious responsibilities for a time and has acquired a remarkably identical doppelganger to pose as them while they took some time off. After a few weeks, they decided to get back in the game, only to find that their imposter has no intention of stepping down from their position. In fact, it seems they've gone quite mad with power and are accusing the deposed noble of being the fake, instead!

    Desperate to avoid worsening the situation, they've reached out to you and your motley in the hopes that you can remove the doppelganger from office in a clean and precise manner. Preferably without anybody noticing they're gone, so that the actual prince can slip back in without invoking unwanted backlash from the public. While it may seem like a simple case of assassinating the imposter when nobody's looking, it would probably be a good idea to procure some evidence of their true identity, just in case something goes wrong!

      A dragon made entirely of writing implements! Truly the most ferocious of foes!

        That's effectively my Changeling Luther Blackwell, though in his case his draconic elements are horns (ballpoint pens) and claws (fountain pen nibs), though his blood is ink as well. I always liked the name Pendragon, and wanted it to be literal here.

          Huh, Blackwell actually sounds like an awesome name for an ink dragon. Maybe their wings could be made out of quill feathers?

            91) Unwanted Guests:

            The Spring Court decided to hold a surprise party to celebrate one of their senior members' contributions to the Freehold. Nothing too terrible about that, except that person in charge of organizing the event accidentally wrote "everyone's invited" on all the invitations. Now, the Huntsmen and even more importantly the True Fey have a written invitation to stroll right into the Freehold without having to bother with all the ritualistic formalities that normally ward them off!
