    Default Emissary to the Icewatch

    For the life of me, I can't decide whether or not this tendency is just a typo or just how people from the new continent speak. In this quest, Queen Miela capitalizes 'Us' and 'We', which was really off-putting. Is it just because she's royalty and thus speaking for the state, or is this just something that should be corrected?
    Regardless of what happens, people will always be unhappy. Be thankful for what you have and always be constructive.

    She's using the majestic plural, commonly (or uncommonly since this tidbit of knowledge is rather obscure in the west) known as the royal "we". You can read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Majestic_plural
