Ser Weyland:
You know the man is very wounded and not faking it. He is close to passing out at this point, the fight or flight of the momment befor has left him and he is now crashing. I owed the House Lugus a favor, for my father. Iris knows, find Iris. He says and collapses on the ground. So Iris is in on it You hear from behind you as the all to quiet Daisy comes from around a corner. She is holding a parchment. [b] I copyed this from a raven's note to be sent out on the marrow according to my sources. It maybe of intrest to you.It reads The deed is done, though minor comlications did arise. The young Ser W W was a witness. The usual had to be done. Will write after tourny. Signed O L.

Ser Weyland:
Does it seem like he is about to die?
Weyland nods at the letter, "I will need more to clear my name but it is a start. Ser Orten handed me this dagger he wants me to plant it on someone any idea who? Weyland shows Daisy the dagger.
"A sister named Salmae delivered it can you arrange a meeting with her tomorrow? In the meantime I want to head out to House Dannett it seems there is some evidence still there that I think can help me, I just need to find it. Also we need to find the last Dannett girl, she is hiding somewhere in Kings Landing according to Orten".

Ser Weyland:
He is on death's door. Let me see it,it looks odd. Assuming you hand it too her she revels that there is a hidden compartment in the hilt that requires a combination of twists and presses to open well hidden in the ornaments of the hilt. The compartment holds a vial. I would bet this is Tears of Lys, a deadly poison. I have no idea what Orten is up too, but it is something big. The Dannett Girl you have already mentioned, Iris. If I connect the dots of what I have learned just now and what I knew befor, I would say originaly Iris fled from marring Ruben and made a deal with Orten. Things went further than she intended, or maybe not, either way Orten intends to marry her to gain her family's holdings. Salamae is a Septa, not one to be associating with a whore. You would have better chance arranging that meeting yourself. Oh look he's coughing up blood, we should hide him in the sewer or something. The woman known as Daisy relays all of this information to you as if talking to a child, though she speaks with respect, it is an obvious feint of respect.

Salamae, Gillem, Tarris feel free to either continue to engage in the party, or something else. as a recap Ser Orten seems frustrated but he is putting on a good face for the feast. Soon the food will be served and with the feast will come the marrige anouncement.


Female Human Cleric of the Seven 2

Salamae is not much of an engager, since the excitement is over. She goes back to silently watching the party, responding politely to those who speak with her, but otherwise just watching to make sure that nothing else unusual happens.


Male Human Fighter

Tarris simply goes about the party, quietly talking to those who know his family, talking of the North, gather info about the current state of the Wall.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

The house Maester anounces the Feast and servants bring out food.

Tarris you are seated furthest from the host, which is probably of comfort to you since you have gathered that there are no northerners at this party but yourself.

Salamae you are asked to give the meal blessing

Gillem you are seated a few chairs down from Ser Langley who is so excited he had to be reminded to sit for the blessing.


Male Human (Westeros) Cavalier (Emissary) 2

Gillem will make not of the faces of those around the "scene" that was caused to approach them after or during the feast. Meanwhile Gillem will try to remember some glorious deed or something worth remember from Ser Langley to speak of at the table.

I have no idea what kind of roll I should make K. Nobility or History or what for something of the sort?

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Knowledge History if it is something historic like a battle he participated in , Knowledge Nobility if it is about his heritage or something along those lines, Knowledge Local if it is some minor achivement that is known around here.


Male Human (Westeros) Cavalier (Emissary) 2

Knowledge Nobility 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13
knowledge History 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (10) + 6 = 16


Female Human Cleric of the Seven 2

Salamae makes her way to the end of one of the central (or head, if preferable) long table.

"To the Father, we give thanks,
for the bounty of the forest, farm, and field.
To the Mother, our undying love,
for the gifts of the sea and rivers.
To the Warrior, praises and honors,
for guarding the feasthall from its enemies wherever they may hide.
To the Wise Crone, we beseech
that wisdom and honor might forebear all grudges within these halls.
To the Smith, honor and appreciation,
for the labors that hands have worked into creating this hall and all within it.
To the gracious Maiden, gratitude,
for providing for our children and the multitude of life."

At this, she pauses for a few seconds, as though reading something silently in her mind.

"With the Seven, let us always remember,
the sacrifices of olden day and yon that made the peace between kings
and this feast possible."

Sorry, I looked all over the web for a Septon's prayer book. Couldn't find one, so I had to make one up on the fly.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Very nice Salamae, I would rather have one improvised by you anyway.

Gillem you remember that Ser Langley's family is famous for riding skills and horse racing. You also recall that in the War of the Usurper the Langley's held a crucial choke point just south of the vale.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

After the blessing Ser Langley makes his announcement of engagement to Lady Marita Lugus. Everyone Toasts. The merchant Ruben Piper is looking very upset and does not eat much. About mid-way in the meal a lord walks over to Salamae and once again thanks her for saving his nephew, he is of a minor house loyal to the Lugus family.

Salamae:
Roll sense motive for me


Male Human (Westeros) Cavalier (Emissary) 2

I make a small toast at our table

"It takes a great rider to recognize another one, and not to mention heroes at holding a key location for the King, Ser Langley is a brother in arms to as all now and something some would aspire too" as Gillem raises his cup "Let the Seven bless you and your family"

Cheliax

Female Witch

In a voice not exactly Gillem's he adds And those loyal to the true King, and not the dragon worshiping traitors

Everyone at the table is a little shocked, but it does gain a boisterous HERE HERE! from a nobel of House Peake, married to a Lannister woman who is not present.

Another nobel of House Blount just sits quietly though he does drink to the toast.


Male Human (Westeros) Cavalier (Emissary) 2

Coffing like he got something cought in his throat "That came out weird, I think I need more wine to pass that pork" as he pounds his chest "Hate it when it happens"


Female Human Cleric of the Seven 2

Salamae:

Sense Motive
1d20 + 12 ⇒ (2) + 12 = 14

Salamae nods in welcome to the gratitude expressed to her.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Salamae:
He is sincer, but listening to his voice you hear simularities in his voice to that of the strange nobel that gave you the package to deliver, you believe that they could be relation.


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Weyland:
Is there a Septa I can bring Ser Archley to before he expires?

Weyland looks down at Archley and tries to figure out where to bring him to save his life. "I would like him alive if possible. Very well I will arrange a meeting with the Septa. Going back to the party now will reaise too many questions. See if you and my benefactor can get an idea of where Iris is hiding. Also who was the man accusing Ser Archley of attacking him on the road? I would like to speak with him as well. Oh and My Lady, save the attitude for someone else, I don't appreciate it".

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Ser Weyland:
I think you are confused by who needs who here my lord. Just make sure your not caught with this deadman Daisy walks off into the night. Ser Achley is all but dead and motions you over to whisper his last words Ser Orten has powerful friends, I followed him once, Balish helped him, but I ... He says no more. A patrol of gold cloaks is approaching.


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Weyland:
As I am still wearing my disguise I am going to play this one out.

I stand up Ser Archley and try to revive him with a slap to the face. Grumbling about his drinking and fighting problems I throw him over my shoulders and head down the alleyway as if nothing is amiss.

Once I am out of sight I will find a place to deposit his body for the time being. I will search him to make sure he does not have anything else on him that I can use to exonerate myself. After that I will find a place to remove my disguise and head to the Church to leave a request for an audience with Septa Salamae leaving my name as Ser Archley.

After that I will head to the stables where Daisy told me Thunder may be held and attempt to buy him with some of the gold I got from Orten. Assuming that all goes well I will ride out to the Dannett's House to see if there is any evidence left behind in light of Orten asking me whether I destroyed the evidence and Tarris saying that he fought Archley I am hoping that Tarris intercepted Archley before he was able to get rid of said evidence. I am a very busy Knight with a busy night ahead of him!


Female Human Cleric of the Seven 2

Salamae raises an eyebrow at the lord thanking her, but otherwise remains silent and observant.

"It is always good to know that there are men who esteem the Seven and their betters with grace and humility."


Male Human (Westeros) Cavalier (Emissary) 2

Gillem

Spoiler:
Well apart from the scene back there, your wedding sure is something I'll remember, now if you might point me to some lonely damsels in need of courting as Gillem laughs and looks around the party for any suitable to be brides of good birth for him.

Cheliax

The rest of the night goes by uneventfull. The next morning criers are anouncing the King's Feast to be held in the field heralding the start of the tournament offically 2 days from now.

Ser Weyland:
You find 100g and another small vial of poison, though it looks differant than the one in the dagger's hilt. There is a small map to house Dannet from some location north of there in the woods.


Male Human Fighter

Tarris:

Find quarters and ask around about those entering both the Melee and the Archery games.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Tarris:
In the Melee, Gregor the Mountain is favored. Gregor boasts he will win both the Melee and the Joust. In archery, another northerner from House Karstark, is master of the Composite bow and is a massive man. You have not heard of him, but House Karstark is well respected and known for large men, themselves believe are descendant from the firstmen.


Male Human Fighter

Tarris:

Hearing the Mountain the Rides is fighting, Tarris will withdraw. However he will gladly enter the Archery fearing no man when it comes to the bow.


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Weyland:
Once I search the ruins of House Dannett I will head to the location on Ser Archley's map. Should I roll separate Search checks or can I take 20 assuming I am taking my time and u am not disturbed? I also assume that I was able to buy Thunder back.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Ser Weyland:
You can get Thunder back. When you get your horse you hear that a stable boy was recently found stabbed in the stable, next to another man that was found dead by an arrow and poison. The ruins of the Dannett house are just about a day out. You hear there is a patrol of Gold Cloaks going out to the house to investigate the situation for the hand of the king.


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Weyland:
Any way to determine the identity of the dead man?
Weyland will attempt to get to the Dannett House first to investigate. Should I rolls search check?

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Ser Weyland:
You can roll perception checks and survival checks sure, no one knows the identity of the dead man and the body was disposed of. the travel time will cause you to miss the tournament if you wanted to participate under the alias


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Weyland:
If I would miss the tournament then I guess I would hold off. I would instead like to try to meet with Salamae and find the man who accused Ser Archley of attacking him. Even though Daisy is on the job I would also spend some time searching for Iris.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

A recap to get us back into things. I did not respond to Ser Weyland because I was hoping for a few more posts and did not want to seem like I was favoring him.

The Main Feast is in two days. Take this time to prepare. I will give you all 1,500 gold in "allowances"or income how ever best suits your character, this amount is more to bring you up to par to your level than to be really a realistic representation of the local economy, which is rarley accurate as it is.
This game is a lot of freeform investigation. If I give you a lead and choose not to follow it, or to look for other leads, it is hard for me to really respond to a non-action post without railroading your character. Try to give me an action with your posts so I have something to go on.


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Weyland's tasks remain the same. As much as I would like to investigate farther afield I also do not want to miss the tournament. Plus if I can find what I am looking for in King's Landing I will still accomplish my goals.

Nimon:
If I gather enough proof I will attempt to go to the Hand of the King to plead my case as I have always heard he is an honorable man.


Male Human (Westeros) Cavalier (Emissary) 2

Sorry I have been absent, dealing with my wife's miscarriage


Female Human Cleric of the Seven 2

My problem is that I made Salamae a mostly quiet character. It's the motto of her house, I've decided. Something about silence being more powerful or something like that. (Still need to work on it to make it sound as cool as the others). So, she's less likely to get involved in things unless there's an obvious need for her. In other words, she knows there's some political intrigue going on, but her upbringing has mostly made her less likely to poke her nose into things. Now, if others (npcs or players) come to her for advice, its an easy way to draw her into things, but she probably won't get too involved on her own. I apologize but this seemed the most realistic way to play this character, so I invite others to feel free to invite Salamae for advice, etc.

Salamae spends the next day or so in the Royal Library under the supervision of either Maester Pycell or another high standing figure in the Library. She quietly researches the names she heard thrown around at dinner the previous night.

Knowledge (nobility)
1d20 + 7 ⇒ (1) + 7 = 8

But after hours of research, has discovered nothing useful.

"By the Seven...!" she curses quietly under her breath, an eye up toward the window.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

That is fine, the library is a good choice.

Sorry to hear that Gillem. Play when you can.

While in the library, The man going by the name Ser Achley at the Lugus feast the night befor finds you.

Salamae/Ser Weyland:
The library is relativly empty due to the tournament preparations. Both can roll a perception/knowledge nobility and or local


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Weyland and Salamae:
Ser Archley approaches Salamae, "Good day to you sister I am glad I was able to locate you. There are a number of questions I would like to ask which I hope you can help me with". Knowledge Nobility 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (19) + 5 = 24
Perception 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (13) + 4 = 17


Female Human Cleric of the Seven 2

Ser Weyland and Salamae:

"I hope I can be of assistance. I have not had much luck finding what I have been searching for. I hope you will forgive my imprudent questions as well, but who are you? Your house and such, I mean."


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Weyland and Salamae:
Ser Weyland comes closer to the Sister, "Who I am will have to remain a mystery for the moment. I need to know where you got this and why you gave it to Ser Orten".
Ser Weyland draws the dagger that Salamae handed to Orten at the feast.


Female Human Cleric of the Seven 2

Ser Weyland and Salamae:
"An impertinent, rude young lordling insisted I give it to him after I was invited to the feast. I never caught his name, but he seems to be related, in mannerism if not by blood, with one of the minor lords that served the Lugus family who was present at the feast."

She struggles to put the heavy book she was reading back on the shelf.

"This place has been filled with more intrigue and secrets since the appointment of the new Hand, perhaps even slightly before. While it is not surprising, truly, it is alarming that so much is going on at this specific moment."


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Wayland and Salamae:
"So it was a Lugus? If we were to see the man again would you recognize his face Sister? Yes I agree the intrigue is disturbing to say the least."


Male Human (Westeros) Cavalier (Emissary) 2

Gillem

Spoiler:
Ser Gillem will look for the old priestess that blessed the union that was at the wedding for some counsel in private.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Gillem:
You know that the septa was a guest because she saved someone's life during tournament practice on the field so you go to the medicus tent there. She is not present, on Septon suggests either looking at the temple or the library.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Ser Weyland:
You notice a man taking intrest in your conversation though he is pretending to read. He appears to be Bravosi in origin. Salamae seems unaware.


Female Human Cleric of the Seven 2

Ser Weyland and Salamae:

Salamae hesitates. "Yes, I think I could identify either of them. Their way of behaving was peculiar enough and noticeable enough that I could put them together."


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Weyland and Salamae:
Weyland turns to the man and speaks to him in Bravosi, "Can I help you? Looking for a book perhaps?"


Male Human (Westeros) Cavalier (Emissary) 2

Gillem

Spoiler:
After missing the septa at the tent I decide to search the temple and if that fails the library, unless someone tells me she is.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Ser Weyland/Salamae:
I would be in the right place for a book its true, but sometimes there is more information to be found by ones own travels my friend The Bravosi says. Salamae recognizes the man as one she had seen earlier walking out of Master Pycell's office the other day.

Ser Gillem:
You approach the temple. You feel compelled not to enter- Roll a Will Save


Male Human Cavalier - 2

Ser Weyland/Salamae:
"What is it you think you will learn from our conversation then... I am sorry I did not catch your name".


Female Human Cleric of the Seven 2

Ser Weyland/Salamae:
"I have seen you before; you were visiting Maester Pycell before I came to see him. I was curious to know why at the time; perhaps we could exchange information since you seem so interested in what we are discussing."
