Since the death of the last king, Great Kourend has been ruled by the Kourend Council. Under the watchful gaze of the Council, Kourend has enjoyed a golden age of progression. But not all of its citizens are happy, and, spurred by the recent arrest of Councillor Sophia Hughes, allegations of corruption are growing.However, the political games of the Council may be the least of Kourend’s concerns. A darker power is gathering in the Kingdom - one that could change the face of Gielinor forever...

|“||My name is Martin Holt. I have dedicated my entire life to serving the Kingdom of Great Kourend. Under the council's rule, we've supposedly enjoyed nothing but harmony and prosperity for decades... but I know better. I can see it. I can feel it. This age of so-called 'peace' is reaching its end, and I fear for what comes next.
Ever since the last king died and his heir disappered, the law of the council has become progressively unjust... corrupt... broken. Those whom we've entrusted this once great Kingdom to have become the ones we dread the most! They threaten the very foundations of all that we've built... and until the monarchy is restored, we will protest, we will rebel, and we WILL have justice!
Great Kourend will be a kingdom divided no more!
— Martin Holt

Once it has been released, I can start this quest by talking to Martin Holt at the entrance to Kourend Castle in Kingstown.
Around 17:42 (UTC) on the same day, players in various areas of the game had their screen rumble with accompanying messages in their chatbox, depending on where they were:
- If players were in Great Kourend and the Kebos Lowlands the chatbox stated "The ground beneath you violently shakes."
- Players exclaimed after the rumbling ended.
- If players were anywhere else the chatbox stated "You hear a faint rumbling coming from the far west..."
