This miracle cemented Gregor's relationship with the royal family, especially with the Tsarista, who was grateful to Gregor for her child's life. Once Winter felt he was in the Tsar's good graces, he did away with the Tsarista and her young son by making it look like they had been murdered by one of the boyars. Outraged, the Tsar slowly removed all of the established nobility from his inner circle, until only Gregor remained.
Without his followers, alone in the wilderness, the Tsar isn't much of a threat. The likelihood of him surviving the travel southwards from Volkov is slim. As the PCs journey closer to the capital, Winter realizes that he took the wrong approach. As long as the Tsar was missing, rumors of his return ran rampant. Despite the abuse heaped upon them, the peasants and even the boyars eagerly awaited someone to retake the throne. The princes were too involved in their own petty squabbles to provide any strong leadership, so Winter keeps the status quo, hoping it crumbles apart.
