There's more happy than the other.

That leads him to coughing a bit.

I chuckle. "And there is my problem."

You have him riveted when you show the hammer.
"I take it I can call it mine."

He's dammed impressed when you tell him about your fight with the Hill men and is laughing when he hears about the poor Riverlander you got your armor from.
"He insulted me so I called him out. The old saying goes, don't bite off more than you can chew... and I have an axe I need to return. Honorable thing to do and all that."

He's also quite impressed when he hears about the Shadowcat.
"I like the cloak"

"Gods lad.  I'm somewhat torn, while I wish you had been here, I don't think you'd ever have become this incredible man, and man you are and let no one say otherwise, that is sitting across from me.  I am honestly honored to call you my son, even if others would say only my bastard son." He leans in and whispers, "Between you and me Edd...you're more a son of mine than Joffrey is.  I would have tried the same damn things at your age.  Him?  I don't think he'll ever fight for himself if he can avoid it."

Before you can comment the door opens and a servant announces that the feast is ready and the king's and the champion of the day's prescence is required.  Robert pulls himself out of his seat and says, "Well lad, shall we face that pit of vipers?"

He then heads out.  Do you follow him?
Of course.

"I have your back, father."

Well so long as you prove to be a capable fighter like this, once you're knighted, someone is SURE to take you on.
Yes, and chances are they'll provide some adequate arms and armor as well, but I'm not sure I'm comfortable with being in that kind of debt. It'd chafe.

A healthy rounsey looks to be your best bet.
For now. I'll hold off buying until I actually need one.

He says that the best herbalists are usually a few buildings away from the whorehouses.  Though he wonders why you're interested if you're not going to be ...you know...
Well, I'd already told him before, aside from avoiding inconvenient sprogs running around unless I want them to, it'd be useful to know in more detail how to take care of injuries, infection, and so on and so forth, especially as I'll likely be unable to afford a Maester for a good long while. That and my philosophical opposition to the concept of eventually getting poisoned.

I might be overly negative where my attitude is concerned, true, but better know how to do something and never need to do it than need to do something and not know how to go about it.

Anyway, time to go see if I can't turn one up and hope any lessons, should they be willing to provide those, won't cost me an arm and a leg.

That's good.

I chuckle. "And there is my problem."
"True but still you still need to make the eight, not really a man and all that." He jokes. He doesn't press though.

"I take it I can call it mine."
"What do you think lad?"

"He insulted me so I called him out. The old saying goes, don't bite off more than you can chew... and I have an axe I need to return. Honorable thing to do and all that."
He laughs again, then when he hears where you have to go, he asks that once you've done that if you would be willing to return to king's landing. He has an idea.

"I like the cloak"
"It looks good on you."

Of course.

"I have your back, father."
You walk in not far behind the king, he sits at the head of the Royal table with his children followed by his brothers, you end up getting a seat of honor with said table which gets MANY people whispering. Looking to your left is Renly Baratheon, the Lord of Storm's End and the youngest brother of the king, a leaner, younger, and pizazzier version of you're old man save for the green eyes, it's like looking into a damn mirror. Until he talks, then he sounds like someone who wouldn't have lasted ten seconds in that fight in the mountains.

To your right, you notice that it's an older man with the sigil of a golden tree, the same one who'd sent someone to speak with you earlier. Neither has made a move to talk just yet but unless you do they will and you'll lose the initiative.

Kinda the point of a sworn sword BUT if you do well enough...or manage to find a VERY desparate lord with only a daughter for an heir....

For now. I'll hold off buying until I actually need one.
Alright.

Alright, makes sense to him, there have been times in his past where having some herbalist skills right then and there would have been godssends.

I smile, "Father, how about before we go we go on a hunting trip where we can talk well away from walls and their ears."

"It looks good on you."
"Thank you. Maybe we could go for a hunt in the mountains one day and make it a matched set! I mean every king needs a proper fur lined cloak and I think it would be a true sign of your vigor to have bagged the poor bastard yourself"

"Anyone who tries to take that hammer from you will answer to me..." and you get a sense of "Ours is the Fury" with the intensity you've never heard of before.

I smile, "Father, how about before we go we go on a hunting trip where we can talk well away from walls and their ears."
"An excellent Idea lad. The moment this tourney's done we'll gather up and go.'

"Thank you. Maybe we could go for a hunt in the mountains one day and make it a matched set! I mean every king needs a proper fur lined cloak and I think it would be a true sign of your vigor to have bagged the poor bastard yourself"
"Not a bad idea either."

I repress the urge to sigh and smile at him. "Hello uncle, I hope your invite still stands. I'd enjoy getting to know you better."
"Ah, the gods have blessed me to allow the greatest jouster I've ever laid eyes on to sit next to me. So you're one of Robert's are you? Well you certainly have the look, like looking into a mirror from half a lifetime ago. Just don't have half the staff girls smiling and limping by the end of the week. I rather enjoy having a clean room...though given how handsome a devil you are AND a champion...that might be a forgone conclusion."

"As for that offer, unless my brother snatches you up, yes...it does still stand...you've got Storm Lord blood in ya, should see the old place at least once. Though might not love it anymore than I did left as soon as I could, all that rain, and dour Stormlander lords brrr..."

"And good health to you as well. I hope the offer still stands as well."
The other man turns to you, "Ah today's champion, good day to you lad. And yes the offer still stands, circumstance of birth or not one would have to be a fool to not take a man with such incredible prowess if he could. So, I know something of you're name and birth Eddard Stone, of the Vale I would guess but I've learned little else, gossip being as insane and varied as it is. So where from the Vale did you come from and who is, or rather was your master?"

"Thank you, father. That is why I asked. I needed the confirmation."

I look delighted.

"Not a bad idea either."
"We'll bag a great beast befitting a king's shoulders!"

"Worry not uncle, while I do enjoy the sight of a comely lass like any other young man my age... I dare not inflict the same troubles I have experienced upon my own children." I grin, "Though if anyone could suggest a good apothecary who supplies in bulk, I'd be very much obliged."

"Ser Martyn Lancet, was my master. I have asked father to allow him to join the feast as without his teaching I would have not been able to stand here today. I owe him much and one day hope to repay..."

If here's here I indicate him and raise a glass to honor him.

"As for my origins, I was born in the Eyrie."

That or win men's loyalty and become a warlord somewhere. Though that would necessitate a certain level of ruthlessness and abandonment of whatever oaths I'd have made at that point. It's an option, but unless things change drastically it won't be one I pursue religiously.

I suppose winning enough glory to be noticed by the King is also an option, both possibly advantageous and utterly perilous at the same time.

So yeah, I've ambition enough to understand the desire of people to play the game. I'm not sure how to feel about that.

Alright, makes sense to him, there have been times in his past where having some herbalist skills right then and there would have been godssends.
It's probably why while most knights and soldiers offer prayers to the Warrior, I send such to the Stranger. Ignorance is not bliss, and that which you do not know will, more likely than not, kill you or maim you severely. So I try to find out such things as I can.

Anyway, time to find a herbalist. Preferably one actually skilled, so the house of ill repute he lives by should be one with a reputation for clean girls. Or boys. Honestly, it's academic, I'm looking for indications of competence. Honestly, I'll probably just start by asking Ser Martyn if he can narrow my options down here.

Well, once I am dismissed, time to tell the big news to my sister, and see about getting her a gift.

After talking with some of the locals they tell you that there are two reliable places, one is run by a former whore named Anna, she apparently bought her way out of service AND married some apothecary, then when he died she returned to help out the girls best she could. She's fair in price and her remedies normally work.

The other one is an old goat of a man name Henk, some think he was originally a Maester that was kicked out from the order and from his reputation it's possible. The man is cantankerous, callous, and makes one pay through the nose, but he's always successful...ALWAYS no matter the crotch rot or other unpleasantness his patients will recover from their ordeal.

He says to think nothing of it and you head out. Mya is quite impressed and she gets excited at the idea of a gift, there was a copper necklace that all but sang to her a few days ago and she hopes it's still there.

When you arrive the necklace is still there, with a semiprecious stone set in it, all yours for 20 ss.

I probably wouldn't be this confident if, on one side, Ser Martyn hadn't hammered the basics into my brain with his typical efficiency, and on the other, my mother hadn't been a maths teacher. Either way, it's a question of starting with the basics and building on those, and in case of history I can at least 'cheat' and begin with relevant things about House Redfort.

Hmm. Henk's got the superior body of knowledge and experience, but by the same token he's probably going to demand a hand and a leg, and I'm not necessarily in the position to part with that kind of money. That and I'm not certain how his attitude would lend itself to teaching. Anna, OTOH, seems to be the economy option, and I _am_ on a budget.

On the other hand, I could debate the relative merits for a while and not get anywhere. Best I actually visit both and ask what they would charge for lessons if they would even be ready to provide tutelage in the first place.

Lord Rowan is a bit more controlled but even he snorts a bit at that.
Robert howls at that one. You're rather glad Cersei isn't here you get the feeling that things would be more ...refined...but MUCH MORE miserable for everyone involved.

On the other hand, I could debate the relative merits for a while and not get anywhere. Best I actually visit both and ask what they would charge for lessons if they would even be ready to provide tutelage in the first place.
Well when you get down there you hear a godsawful shriek coming from the apothecary that Anna runs and the sound of smashing furniture and pottery. When you run in you spot a Sworn Sword looming over Anna and a girl you guess is her daughter. The man snarls and says, "You fucking bitches, you said this stuff was supposed to work. I spent 2 weeks pay for this and slathered it all over me privates for a month and guess what NOTHING HAPPENED! So I aim to get my money and time back one way or another."

Honestly, some will marry their daughters right off their first bleed to men old enough to be their own fathers for a couple sword arms and a plot of scrubland, but never think of the benefits of marrying daughters and bastards into the merchant class," I pause, "Say what you will about purity of blood and ancient tradition, but gold is the life blood of Westeros and anyone who disagrees should ask Tywin Lannister his opinion on the matter."

"Yes such a curse we live under, the vicious ladies just will not leave us alone."  Mock distress is in his voice.
I gently pat his hand. "Worry not Uncle, I shall protect you from the lusty maidens. It shall be a bother true, and quite a toil, but a man does what he must for the sake of his kindred."

He chuckles at the glazed look in your eyes, "You're Robert's alright."
"I thought every man had that fantasy."

Robert heard that little discription as well, he laughs and says, "Shame they'd likely skin you alive for looking like me."
"I believe my manhandling of Ser Jamie and the Mountain who Rides may have given my a stay of execution.... though possibly complaints that I wasn't aiming my lance higher on the latter."

He nods and he has a calculating look on his face.
I smile a bit.

Lord Rowan is a bit more controlled but even he snorts a bit at that.
I grin. "The climb works the buttocks like a black smith's hammer. I swear you could bounce a star a yard high off of the arses of some of these girls."

Robert howls at that one.
 

I give him a look. "Are you agreeing, father?"

You're rather glad Cersei isn't here you get the feeling that things would be more ...refined...but MUCH MORE miserable for everyone involved.
Don't you mean everyone present? And not like I'd pay attention to her anyways. Wink

Honestly we need to get this man unwhipped.

Few months with her embarrassed and locked up should do it though Tywin won't take kindly to it.

While he's distracted with that, I take a long stride or two - no running or anything that would draw his attention away from the easy prey, and because the room likely isn't that large either - and apply a sleeper hold. Let's try to make do with a minimal amount of fuss and bother here. If that doesn't work, I'll be close enough to just manhandle him outside.

As you turn from lord Rowan, a strong voice from about your navel height is heard, "Ah so this is today's champion. I must say you've caused quite the stir here."

You manage to get him into a sleeper hold but he makes a fight of it by trying to slam you into a wall with his larger size but if you plant your feet he can't get you to budge.

The older woman looks at the man for a moment, then pulls something from the shelf, she turns to you "Help me lift him up."

You get his head up and she pours the concoction down his throat.  "There he should be out for the rest of the day."

She then looks to you, her hair is a brilliant red with grey streaked here and there.  Her eyes are sky blue and though she's certainly older most men would have to be dead or simply not interested in women to completely ignore her still full figure.  Her daughter is all of these things without the signs of age.  She's about maybe a year older than you and even if you're made out of stone you take a glance or two.

The rest of the night goes pretty well you didn't drink too much but Martyn has one HELL of a sore head. The next day is the day of the grand melee, 100 knights line up around the edge of the huge tourney field. What arms do you wear and what horse do you ride? The old Rounsey you've been using or the Huge Destrier Stallion you won off of Clegane?

If so I simply nod and let it end there as I have no desire to damage his pride, only show concern for his discomfort.

It takes a bit of a struggle and finally just punching the damn thing before he does what you want him to but he's good to go. Wielding Robert's Hammer, you tear towards the center of the ring where the main melee is centered. Knights go flying, sometimes literally as you tear through them like a whirlwind. As you're about to knock some Northman from his horse, a lance strikes you in the back of the head. Someone tried to knock your head off. Looking around, you spot some weedy looking Dornishman who's the likely culperate. You chase after him or focus on the Northman?

I look a little saddened at that. "Well, then I guess it is best that you get off your feet and rest your weary legs. Lets speak another time then?"

"Well if you have repeats like before then you'll be sure to be covered in glory and honor.  Though other tourney competitor may begin cursing your name if you beat them out too many times.   Though the fair maidens there might help make up for it...or make it worse..."
I laugh. "There are already plenty of names they curse. I shall simply add one to the list."

It takes a bit of a struggle and finally just punching the damn thing before he does what you want him to but he's good to go.  Wielding Robert's Hammer, you tear towards the center of the ring where the main melee is centered.  Knights go flying, sometimes literally as you tear through them like a whirlwind.  As you're about to knock some Northman from his horse, a lance strikes you in the back of the head.  Someone tried to knock your head off.  Looking around, you spot some weedy looking Dornishman who's the likely culperate.  You chase after him or focus on the Northman?
I glare at him for a second, but I keep focused on what I'm doing.

He's next though!

He just finds a stool to sit on.

"Well you don't lack bravado and I wish you luck."

The Northman goes down like a sack of hammers and you turn to go after the Dornishman, you see him, but he's already gotten to the far side of the 20 knights left. You plow through, go around, or just leave him alone either you'll run into him again or someone else will take care of him?
