Maybe a silly question, but part of becoming a hero (master) is presenting your treasure and the slain beast to the king. How is this possible, when there isn't any king (the king is dead, see Global Challenge)? How can our journeymen and -women become masters in the heroes-guild? Showing your treasure and 'slaying-trofee' to a king would interfere the story, in which has just been assassinated.
