"He didn't know anything."

That snarl becomes down-right bestial, "Melcom!"  I all but growl.

"Aye..."

Albar looks at you. "I've already informed my father via raven."

Either that or Melcom can't take a loss with any dignity.

You mention anything of the kind?

Ah right there is that.

Yep. And Nester did have orders to watch out for you two.

As am I.  Once I'm back on my feet I make sure to work my damaged arm to see the extent of the damage, to see how much I'm hindered, and to get myself back to fighting form.

Your arm hurts like hell and is stuff. Still swelling from the toxin... which considering what that shit is capable of is pretty much a dodged bullet.

Edd

You catch a few words, "That young man is terrifying."

I smirk as I leave.

Well not so much extorted as he sat on his duff until the fight was decided.

"Frankly there's something about that entire family that rubs me the wrong way. My instincts are good, and my instincts say that Walder Frey has long outlived his usefulness."

Heh

"I like the Golden Whore of Casterly Rock the most. Have you heard that one?"

If not I actually sing it for everyone.

The spear strikes the beast but unfortunately it isn't a lethal blow.  It DOES however make it angry.  The thing is searching the rocks around it, trying to scent you out with it's tongue in the air.

Roll a d10 for evading the beast.

I mutter it to Mya, Myranda, Albar, and Martyn.

Another excellent point.

True but considering who I might be going up against, I can't afford to slack off.

I keep working at it.

"Bunch of weasels I say." Your father mentions.

That sets a few people chuckling.

Amazingly the lizard doesn't seem to be able to find you, still enraged and in pain the massive beast turns away from your location in its attempt to find it's attacker. You've got another spear, you use it?

If so roll 2d20 and 1d10.

Albar and Martyn have been discussing it with Ser Raymun

They think its strange that the assassin would be using such exotic but deadly toxins and would have been paid in lannister coin and would be using a marked knife from the forges of his master.

There's something far more convoluted going on. But really, who could want you dead?

Another excellent point.

Probably why he didn't throw you from the moon door when you and his daughter seemed to be close... Wink

"Honestly, I think the Green Fork needs another bridge... and I have been working on a design for one that can be build at the less ideal crossings... would you like me to show you?

If so I show him a sketch of a suspension bridge built of super heavy rope and wood.

It would be significantly cheaper to build than a proper stone bridge, can be constructed using unskilled labor, and would last for a very long time if properly maintained. It can also be constructed high enough not to interfere with river traffic and could even be modified to allow for ocean going ships to pass through depending on placement.

That sets a few people chuckling.

I put a lot of personality into it.

If there's one nifty thing about the Super Soldier Serum it's that the results think of fatigue as something that doesn't apply to them.

... and now I have to fight off the mental image of having Myranda all tied up. Yeah. I'm not fighting it off very hard.

Luckily it seems that no one noticed, but Myranda has the BIGGEST smile on her face and a WONDERFUL spring in her step.

You're pretty sure her brother suspects.

http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/20660866/images/1347222546228.jpg

This describes my attitude that morning with a fair amount of accuracy. I'm probably the most mellow I've been in a long time, and I'm normally a fairly mellow person anyway.

And given that I probably couldn't pry Myranda off my arm without the aid of a crowbar, I'll likely skip the usual morning spar that day.

When a girl stakes a claim her claim will be defended, even if her claim is as oblivious as a rock.

I'd argue, but I do resemble that remark.

I do ask Myranda if she intends to join me when I head back to the Crownlands, and if so begin making travel arrangements. Oh, yeah, and inform her that Anna and Hennah will be coming with us as I've hired the both of them on - considering Mya's met them Myranda is likely to know who I'm talking about. I'm not really prestigious or have enough funds rolling in to afford a Meister quite yet, after all.

Suit yourself, the nightmares come soon after.

All things considered, they're not really that bad. /denial

Mostly the queen went balistic at the sight of you, but most are dismissing it as one, she's the queen, what she got to fear from you, two, she may be as proud as a cat but losing her shit like that sounds absurd.

Well, it'd have gotten some people thinking at least. That's likely more than I could have arranged on my own.

He'd have to get some maesters and master builders to look at it but he trusts you and anything that can undermine the great late Walder Frey has his support and likely old Hoster as well.

I put a lot of personality into it.

It's an entertaining performance.

This strike manages to kill the beast, though it makes one last spasm that makes the earth shake, you watch it for breathing and soon the massive lungs stop pumping. It's certainly dead now, do you go down now? Or wait?

There's a chuckle.

"A trait unfortunately common among most who call themselves knights, but has he always been like this?"

It's Ser Jaymes, one of the oldest knights present, and an old hand who has served Lord Nestor since before the rebellion who answers. "Aye. The man's always been a bloody fool and an embarrassment to his house. He's well capable with a blade, and has made a good deal of coin on the tony circuit, wasted much of it on fine wine and fine whores. Why, there's even talk that boy of his, who was so quick to condemn you as bastard while born legitimate was not conceived in any marriage bed."

"Make the Lannister's look bad, maybe a Lannister family member is Ser Melcom's paymaster and for some reason they see me as a threat?  Who knows, maybe they don't want another blackfyre debacle, I've heard that the King's trueborn look and act nothing like him and considering I can fight damn well they're fearing a repeat of the process.  I honestly don't know I'm merely throwing out ideas."

They share a look at that last thought. "Be careful where you say that... be very careful."

You can see them constructing a scenario. It's not pretty.

Ghurk...

:p

Dice gods don't fail me now.

Wow. Now that's a hard core epic fail.

You manage to enter the Crownlands without too much trouble, but you wake up one night to the sound of fire and screams.

Fire, because the BUILDING IS ON FIRE!

Screams because it seems there's a small army of bandits guarding the doors killing anyone who tries to flee the flames!

Edd

He'd have to get some maesters and master builders to look at it but he trusts you and anything that can undermine the great late Walder Frey has his support and likely old Hoster as well.

"Well, we have the new High Maester with us and I'm sure there are plenty of master builders in Dorne to consult. I'd have willing to pay a small commission in exchange for silence."

It's an entertaining performance.

"I think I missed my calling. Or maybe I shall add music and dance to my many skills! So since I'm already performing, does anyone want to hear an epic tale of times long lost and lands far away? I've heard a wondrous story of men and monsters, of how the smallest folk can be the greatest of heroes. It is called... the Lord of the Rings..."

This strike manages to kill the beast, though it makes one last spasm that makes the earth shake, you watch it for breathing and soon the massive lungs stop pumping.  It's certainly dead now, do you go down now?  Or wait?

I lift a large rock and throw it at the things mouth. If should snap if its still alive.

If its dead, I go down and dig the spear in its spine deeper to make sure.

FUCK! Grabbing my hammer and knocking over a table I use the thing as an arrow blocker and ram and rush the door, either I knock the bastards for a loop or I can get close enough to start bashing shit. If no table is available I take a hammer to a wall and knock a hole out and get as many people through then I turn to deal with the bandits.

Well the Grand Maester certainly approves of what he sees once you've given him and explanation though he notes that it might be a bit difficult if you try something this huge right from the start. Might want a few CHEAPER practice runs on some streams.

"I think I missed my calling. Or maybe I shall add music and dance to my many skills! So since I'm already performing, does anyone want to hear an epic tale of times long lost and lands far away?

You did so well before the locals ask that you continue, some slight nostalgia on their faces, Rhaegar was famous for being a master musician, though his talent leaned towards the harp and sad tales that make maidens swoon, yours seems more like the old sagas of the old First men and Andals when they first came to Westeros. They enjoy the stories.

Well it doesn't snap but it did have a tail spasm that would have killed even you if you'd been in range of it, but that last swat of its tail seems to have been it's last hurrah and there's nothing left that can move on the creature.

The walls are thick and oaken. And by think I mean thick. These traveling inns have two primary elements of character. First, there is no want of wood with which to build. Second, they need to be able to repulse a bandit raid as defenders will be slow coming. So no, you're not going through the walls.


Edd

So I tell them the story of the lord of the rings, starting with the Hobbit and going onto the Fellowship of the Ring, the Twin Towers, and the Return of the King.

I'm sure its dawn before I finish.

I want the body prepared how they normally prepare it. And I'm sure they eat much of it. That's a lot of meat! Very Happy

If it is eaten, I actually arrange for it to be the main course of a fast.

Alright is there a back door? A window, how about the upstairs are they on fire? If none of those are a go then I find something to cover my torso and I charge the door to clear a way out.

Now he's honestly impressed and he asks where you learned this at, being a squire for a sworn sword isn't considered a haven for the learned arts.

So I tell them the story of the lord of the rings, starting with the Hobbit and going onto the Fellowship of the Ring, the Twin Towers, and the Return of the King.

I'm sure its dawn before I finish.

And only a few have fallen asleep. Though you might wonder about a banish royal line regaining a throne considering Robert's Rebellion.

"The things are carrion eaters much of the time, their meat is rather foul unless you boil the daylights out of it. But the skin is some of the best leather in all of the known world, strong, flexible, and can be as tough as chain-mail if you can prepare it right.

He twigs immediately to what the two of you did last night, but he isn't going to attack the hero of the hour right then and there, but he's going to his father oh yes. HE. IS!

She gives you a long look, while you made a good point about a professional healer, the fact you openly admit that both women are attractive and that you wouldn't mind bedding either of them, to her face, doesn't exactly fill her with confidence. Though she does eventually say that she'll just have to make sure you're too wrung out to rove.

Considering she killed a man in bed in OTL she just might be able to do it.

... deep sigh. "Would you care to come with me the next time I go visit with them?"

If nothing else to see what she's up against. When do you go?

Pretty sure that between that and Jaime I've lost any chance at all at being in Tywin Lannister's good book ... not that he likely even has one.

Alright is there a back door?  A window, how about the upstairs are they on fire?  If none of those are a go then I find something to cover my torso and I charge the door to clear a way out.

Okay, you going to check with your Xray vision? No? I guess its look around frantically time.

Edd

Now he's honestly impressed and he asks where you learned this at, being a squire for a sworn sword isn't considered a haven for the learned arts.

"I've read and memorized every book in a maester's library and the only reason I didn't head to the citadel was I wanted a family. And even now I might decide to head back some time and forge a number of rings even if I don't take the oaths."

And only a few have fallen asleep.  Though you might wonder about a banish royal line regaining a throne considering Robert's Rebellion.

The line of the Stewards were never Kings, and Aragorn was an honorable man who only pressed his claim when it became clear that the current Steward was maddened by the loss of his son. And even then he honored Faramir as among the most honored of his bannermen and had counted Boromir as his honored brother in battle. I really don't see the comparison.

"The things are carrion eaters much of the time, their meat is rather foul unless you boil the daylights out of it.  But the skin is some of the best leather in all of the known world, strong, flexible, and can be as tough as chain-mail if you can prepare it right.

I see. Skin it carefully and had your best tanners tend to it... and prepare the meat and give it to the small folk. I'm sure they can make good use of it.

Well ... alright?

She gives you a long look, while you made a good point about a professional healer, the fact you openly admit that both women are attractive and that you wouldn't mind bedding either of them, to her face, doesn't exactly fill her with confidence.  Though she does eventually say that she'll just have to make sure you're too wrung out to rove.

"If we're going to do this, we'll be going the distance together, partners for the rest of our lives. I would rather not lie to you."

Pause.

"Would it sill count as roving if we were both there?"

Of course, the proper way to handle this is to regularly leave her so tired and blissed out she admits she might need to recruit help. But that's more of a longer term endeavor than anything else. Thank ROB for Serum-influenced physiology ... though I'm not sure how much of that is due to the Serum and how much is just the natural inclination of the son of Robert 'I've fucked my way through Westeros' Baratheon.

Considering she killed a man in bed in OTL she just might be able to do it.

Considering the kind of men she almost married here, I'm not sure if that was a comment on Myranda's appetites or her former husband's lack of constitution.

If nothing else to see what she's up against.  When do you go?

When the wagon and traveling supplies have been arranged for, to drop those off. Aaaaand we'll take Mya along too, because she gets along with them well and she's not visited with them yet at this point.

Speaking of which, what are Myranda's traveling arrangements? Does she prefer to ride, or will she also go via wagon when we leave?

Probably both.

She can ride though she doesn't enjoy it. She'd prefer a wagon.

You've got other issues as the man looks like he's been forced something FOUL down his throat, meanwhile Albar looks ready to throttle you. Myranda is a bit concerned about her brother's health considering he's gone red in the face and veins are bulging.

It seems that all but one of the doors has been barricaded.

There are well over dozen men you can see, all in armor with decent quality arms. These are not mere bandits but proper sellswords... no markings but well armed... you see a number of dead already outside the door....

They seem to be cutting down anyone who exits while laughing and taunting.

Dude. You're REALLY grasping for straws here.

Stupid sexy flanders moment when Dacey's is fitted out.

Yep. Though she's in King's Landing... so it'll have to wait.

Anyways, before we go (and move the plot on)...

I'd like to give a gift to the locals.

I'd like to experiment with a couple stove designs, if they don't have them. Designs that will use much less fuel than traditional cooking fires.

The first is the Tandor oven... which on Earth was mostly a middle eastern and indian thing.

It's basically a large clay pot, sometimes covered in sand to help preserve heat, with a very small charcoal fire on the bottom. They get outrageously hot and are very good for cooking things using high heat.

If they don't have them I experiment with Kabobs and Naan (Bread cooked by slapping it against the walls of the Tandor then scraping it off with a wired hook and long handled spatula) and meat kabobs.

http://images.fxcuisine.com/blogimages/tandoor-seekh-vegetables-IMG_4622.jpg

The second is stove that can be made from scrap bricks and a little clay mortar called a rocket stove.

It uses very little fuel to create extremely intense heat and is good for using a pot.

I also experiment with putting a clay pipe in the middle to increase effectiveness (which it will)

https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2731/4519590528_3d58415f64_z.jpg

They should help the local small folk cut down fuel use, thus allowing the supply to stretch, saving them coin which will allow them to be more prosperous (and I note in passing to lord Qorgyle, buy more taxable luxuries)... Wink

You know, my whole ideal of enriching the nobility by widening the income base Wink

Do your dreams include and happy and healthy home where you DON'T have 30 different bastards and or mistresses drawing knives on each other to get what ever you might leave behind? Because that COULD be the road you travel on if you don't watch it.

He does.

She is but Albar's full of righteous fury at the moment.

Nestor's silent for a while then he says, "While I trust my son's opinion in most things, in this matter his judgment is more than a little...clouded. I also know you're one of the most honorable young men in the Vale so in this matter. I will let the matter rest."

"B..but father!" Albar starts but is silenced by his father with a look.

"I have made my decision, are you going against me in public?"

"No..."

"Good, now unless there is anything else anyone else would like to add you have my leave to go."

Do you?

Considering the circumstances I've been pretty goddamn restrained so far. If all I wanted was to fuck a swath through Westeros, I've been in a position to start on that for a while now.

Nestor's silent for a while then he says, "While I trust my  son's opinion in most things, in this matter his judgment is more than a little...clouded.  I also know you're one of the most honorable young men in the Vale so in this matter.  I will let the matter rest."

"No..."

"Good, now unless there is anything else anyone else would like to add you have my leave to go."

Do you?

"... regarding our conversation yesterday ... there really isn't a tactful way of saying this, but I'll likely end up stealing my fiancee away before the wedding when I head back to the Crownlands. I'd like to introduce her to my father, for one. And possibly hide behind her when Lord Jon happens by because I'm hoping to distract him away from that whole 'yes, Lord Jon, I know I said I'd try to not make too much trouble last time I was around, but I'd like to introduce to you my future wife ...' issue."

And what do you do once out?

"Well ... that just happened ... and was horribly awkward," I say with a sigh.

Anyway, IIRC we were going to hunt down Mya and go down to meet Anna and Hennah in town with Myranda before we were interrupted.

True but remember the world you live in personal relationship ARE the bonds of society here so you might want to be at LEAST cautious.

"... regarding our conversation yesterday ... there really isn't a tactful way of saying this, but I'll likely end up stealing my fiancee away before the wedding when I head back to the Crownlands.

The sheer frustration on Nestor's face is palpable from where you stand. But after a moment of staring at you he sighs and says, "Give me until tomorrow."

"Well ... that just happened ... and was horribly awkward," I say with a sigh.

"Yes....at least it's in the open."

Anyway, IIRC we were going to hunt down Mya and go down to meet Anna and Hennah in town with Myranda before we were interrupted.

Alright.

When you get down there you see that the ladies are packing their shop up for the eventual trek. When they see you coming the younger woman seems excited and runs out to greet you, but that excitement turns...frigid when she sees Myranda walking alongside you.

"Welcome back, who is your friend?"

I smile at it. "You ain't seen nothin' yet."

That look people seem to give you all the time is shockingly widespread.

This time preparations are made beforehand and the trek actually goes quite nicely, you actually have short cloud cover for several days.  Eventually though you finally reach Sunspear, the capital of Dorne.  The city is impressive to say the least.

At the gates you see that a welcoming party is already present.  At the center of the greeting party is....

Your head starts to clear as they begin to flee. First, you've been injured. Second, you have no prisoners.

You're mind is slipping out of MURDER DEATH RAGE but you need to focus if you're going to hunt them down like you did those fucking mountain men... if you want to.

What do you do.

Also, do you want prisoners?

Heh.

"Fine then... I need access to the castle blacksmith..."

I rig up a swamp cooler. (something that should be easily built and would probably have me considered a patron saint in Dorne)

I rig it so the pump and fan are powered by a small tower mounted windmill via a rotating axle.

*sidelong look at Psycko's run* Comparatively speaking I've been a saint.

The sheer frustration on Nestor's face is palpable from where you stand.  But after a moment of staring at you he sighs and says, "Give me until tomorrow."

... well, we weren't planning on leaving immediately anyway so I see no problem with that. There's still a fair few days left. Still, I can understand Nestor's frustration. This isn't quite elopement, but it's little better.

"Yes....at least it's in the open."

"No, I'm pretty sure it's been in the open since I spoke to your father yesterday. I just meant I'd wanted to spare him having to deal with the details ... there are just some conversations a father should never have to suffer through."

Alright.

When you get down there you see that the ladies are packing their shop up for the eventual trek.  When they see you coming the younger woman seems excited and runs out to greet you, but that excitement turns...frigid when she sees Myranda walking alongside you.  

"Welcome back, who is your friend?"

... yeah, again, no really good way to do this but I think it's gotta be done anyway, rather than just dropping the matter on them when we start the trip back.

"Myranda? Hennah and her mother Anna. The apothecaries and I would like to say dear friends you've heard about from Mya," I indicate the latter with a nod if she's not joined us at this point. "Hennah? This is Myranda Royce. My fiancee."

Damn.

I focus myself like I had during the duel at the Gate of the Moon. I'm going to need every advantage I can.

What do you do.

Glance over my shoulder to make sure people are getting out, then I head after the bastards.

Also, do you want prisoners?

One.

This also gets their attention. He promises to look at this later but it does intrigue him.

"I approve... Neo-Rhoynar architecture..."

I geek out a bit.

"And architecture? Where did you have time for this son?"

Princess Arriane Martell....you THINK you're mouth goes dry when you see her. Not tall but ye gods she gorgeous....Robert actually chuckles a bit. "Now that's a woman there son."

When you finally arrive at the gates the Princess bows, exposing the cleavage that seems common in Dornish dress...and what lovely cleavage it is. She then welcomes you to Sunspear. She apologizes but her father had already left for the water gardens for his health when it was learned you would arrive soon and her uncle had gone on one of his long treks to gods know where for gods know how long.

She asks if the journey was pleasant.

Psycko's also a crown prince.

He'd really love to rip you a new one but favor with the king puts pay to even that.

"It was a little funny to see Albar almost pop a vessel, he never has liked you much."

They check each other, like cats sizing each other up for a fight. Pleasentries are offered and mild conversation happens...and it seems there won't be a fight or a bitch fest...for now.

You've dodged a bullet for a moment. Is there anything else you wish to do here?

Bah. Details! Don't bother me with details!

I have to wonder for what, precisely, seeing as we talked about this exact thing happening during our previous conversation and he seemed alright with it.

"It was a little funny to see Albar almost pop a vessel, he never has liked you much."

"Brother's prerogative, I think. You're not really supposed to like whoever it is your sister fancies. As relatively understanding as I've been myself, Mychel and I have an unspoken agreement. He doesn't hurt Mya, I don't show up in his rooms in the middle of the night and drag him out to the mountainside where I've dug a shallow grave."

Well, since I'm here already I might as well help Anna with moving stuff while those two talk ... and hope Mya is enough to keep them from coming to blows.

"Yes, I know, would you believe it just sort of happened?" I say under my breath in response to Anna's Look.
