9. Sorry - I meant what other Oldtimer bronze that was exiled to the South,
11. Close - one was misspelled.
10. Nessa isn't correct - the "ss" should be something else.
8. Need 1 more pair of HR leaders (G'don).
2. Dalova's queen is Allaneth (misnamed in Dragondex) and there's another junior queen missing.

Heh, and I didn't look up all the answers so I just put down the first bronze I could think of. Had forgotten about G'don.
Will wait and see if someone else gets the ones I missed.
