    After sitting and talking with WUlf for a few hours, Sansa finally seems to have the celebration prepared. You make your way over to the mess tent, where the Chefs have prepared a stew from forage taken from the forest near your fort and the salted valkerie meat left over, from what you see of the men already here, the food is good. Most of the men have water, but there is a small stack of kegs of ale, watched by several men. If no one is a pig with the alcohol, everyone should be able to have a glass or two, but not enough to become dangerously inebriated. After a few minuites Sansa seems to have rounded up a group of men, all of whom have a full glass of ale, and are listening to your aide intently. After a few minutes they break into two groups, and start playing some game that has no rhyme or reason from your perspective. Eventually one team has naught but empty glasses, and lets out a triumphant cheer, before Sansa takes them over to a cordoned off area, where she refills their glasses from a keg separate from the ones the men can access freely. She then walks over to talk with Kyria, leaving the game area empty, along with the extra kegs.

    You realize Wulf has wandered off into the growing crowd under the big tent at the same moment Uurist asks you "Are ya just gonna stand there Commander, or join the celebration?"

    Our goal this celebration: To charm several of our ladies into bed with us simultaneously. It will be as dangerous and difficult a campaign as we've ever fought, but with our charm, intelligence, and copious amounts of available alcohol, I believe that is within our capabilities.

    After we go pull Laelith out of whatever dark reading corner she's hiding herself away in we should:
    A) Dance with her (and the others)
    B) Mingle with the enlisted, see what they think about us and the campaign.

    I disagree. I think we should settle on one at a time until we've made the whole rounds and they know we're going to be romancing them all. We haven't even talked about a relationship with anyone but Jayne.

    I do agree that our goal should be to coax one of them back to our tent tonight, however. Sansa or Laelith get my vote.

    I'm pretty sure stealing their clothes and feeling them up while they make military reports from our lap counts as talking about a relationship. It's a pretty fucking transparent indicator of interest.

    We can start by having charming and enjoyable conversation with them, preferably all at once, and bending our social expertise towards stopping them from fighting one another while turning the conversation in entertaining ways. As the night wears on and everyone gets a little more relaxed thanks to wine and delightful conversation, we can move the party to someplace more private. Play it by ear from there, but I bet we can pull of at least two at once.

    On a completely unrelated note, I was thinking that once we finish this campaign and return to the capital, we should request that the Second Praetorian allow us to search through the Legions for those that have talent for elementalism and recruit them into our maniple for training as combat elementalists where appropriate.

    You'll have to point out to me where the talking is in there. Yes, we are interested in them and they us. Everyone knows that. The talking part comes into play because we have not yet set out important things like wife/concubine or declared we intend to have LASTING romantic interests with any of them except Jayne.

    Hell, we haven't even told a single one of them we love them yet.

    I'm pretty sure all of them know that we're not marrying any of them right now, and all of them know that we'd rather like to sleep with them for at least the duration of the campaign. What more's to know? We're not proposing lifelong bonds, we're proposing a mindblowingly hot orgy.

    "Just making sure Sansa hasnt done anything foolish before I start enjoying myself. You?" you reply, walking with the dwarf to the counter the stew is being served from.

    "Ah, I cant drink as much as I'd like so I thought I'd make enough of an appearance ta not insult yer girl. Though I may have to see about those drinking games she has set up." the dwarf replies, sitting down with his stew next to you. Off on the far side of the converted training yard Lena spits ale from her mouth, in distaste, before handing her tankard to Wulf, who shrugs happily before putting his arm around her shoulder and leading her over to where a few men are tuning up instruments they brought with them on campaign. Eventually the dwarf next to you burps "Good stuff, leaves you thirsty though. Care to go fill a glass with me?" he asks, rising from his seat.

    Okay I think you should reevaluate the consensus reached in past threads. It has been established that we're getting into a committed relationship with all of them, possibly Nyetini, and maybe Lena depending on how it goes.

    Pretty sure we're giving Lena to Wulf.

    And I am aware of that consensus. I'm also aware that it's been like a year and we've done fuck-all to achieve it, so it's time to move aggressively. We can invite them into more permanent status after achieving great success in romance.

    Thank him for his offer, but say that perhaps next party; this seems like a night to be spent in the company of the fairer sex.

    You know how fleeting young love is. And Wulf is about to be gone for a while. It's possible Lena might fall for us. If she does, Justinian Trentz isn't going to turn her down.

    You pull out your flask "I think I'll have to do you one better before we can fill our glasses." you tell him, offering the flask.

    Uurist takes a pull, and smiles almost as soon as he tastes the liquor "What did I do ta earn a pull'a the Commanders finest?" he asks you, returning the flask, which you take your own drink of before dropping the flask back into its pouch on the inside of your tunic.

    "To be honest, you did quite well in subduing Gaerick, as did your men with his guard. I though some reward was in order." you reply, as the two of you finally approach the front of the shortest line to a keg. Across from you Jayne is talking animatedly with Janos and Kaitlyn, both of whom still have their hoods drawn over their heads, just in case some prisoner can see over or through the berm separating them from the field the celebration is being held on.

    Once both of you have your tankards filled Uursit raises his just enough to indicate a personal toast "Heres ta you, heres ta me, if we should disagree..." the dwarf stumbles over the old drinking toast, not really able to finish it properly, as you are still his superior, "ah..." he stutters, trying to salvage the toast.

    You decide to have mercy on the dwarf "Fuck you, heres ta me!" you finish the old drinking toast, aping the dwarfs accent, knocking your tankard into his in a rough toast, causing some of his ale to spill into your glass before you take your drink.

    Uurist guffaws before taking his drink "Cleverly done, Commander." he compliments you, a bit of foam clinging to his mustache. "But it looks like Sansa's settin' up another game. I'll have a full glass with'ye later tonight, laddy." he promises before heading off to the corner of the mess tent set aside for the drinking games.

    Observation: We're letting them stew with want for a little while. While romance is distasteful to this runtime, I am to understand the female meatbags will be more accessible once left to sit, much like wine on the rack.

    With a full glass you wander through the crowd outside the tent. Most of the men salute you with a smile, others offer you a toast directly, or toast you after you pass. More than a few have something they want to thank you for, mostly for some time that you saved them or a friend by your presence in the battle line. after a while you have to break away because your tankard is being re-filled for you too quickly, as some soldier takes it from you to re-fill whenever you cant join that particular group for a toast, or even if they notice it empty as you pass.

    You take the opportunity to go retrieve Laelith from her tent, where she is sitting, exactly as you had expected, translating another tome taken from Finian. "Justinian, I thought we weren't to go on picnic until tomorrow." she greets you

    "And you are correct." you reply, shutting the tome in front of her "But I refuse to allow you to work all night again. We are celebrating our victory, and thanks to the integral part in that you played, you have no choice but to attend" you inform her, taking her arm and dragging her as politely as possible from her work and to the celebration. By the time you reach the field she is actively walking alongside you.

    No sooner than you reach the field is she whisked away from you "Laelith!!" Kyria exclaims "I was looking for you, some joker out of Cornelius' lot thinks he can outdo you with a torch and a cheap bottle of whiskey, lets go show him up!" she exclaims, punctuated by the jet of spit fire growing and dying over the top of the field. Laelith raises an eyebrow and allows the Dwarf to drag her over to the group in question.

    You make your way over to where blackbird is reclined against the berm, his firstwife under one arm, a tankard of ale on the ground next to him, and a comparatively small set of pipes in his hand, which he is quietly playing an upbeat tune on. "Commander" he greets you "what brings you this far from the center of the reverie?"

    "I wanted to see how you were doing, and perhaps protect my hair from the firestarters over there." you reply amiably, sitting down next to the orc.

    Blackbird chuckles slightly "A wise choice, and I am doing quite well, now that my wife is with my first child." he replies, setting his pipes down.

    "Congradulations are in order then." you reply, lifting your tankard to the orc, who accepts your toast. After finishing the glass off you continue "Though I am curious as to how the raiding went, and where you learned to play your pipes."

    "Ah, it was an excellent time, commander. My adoptive clan came together quite well, there was food aplenty, the winter days were mild, and we felt the heat of battle nearly every night to ward off the cold." The orc sighs contentedly "As to the pipes, it is something I learned when I lived among the New Clans, that was one of the first tunes I learned. Though I must admit I prefer the horn and drum for most occasions." he adds, leaning against the berm.

    We had Jayne wet and ready before in our tent on our bed. We turned her down because we've already decided to marry her and don't want to favor her over the others.

    Sansa is good, and so is Laelith. I don't think we're far enough with Kyria right now to ask her back to our tent. The idea of sexing Laelith tonight and then going on a romantic trip with her tomorrow appeals to me, though, so I'll second (or third, or fourth?) that.

    "How long were you living amongst the New Clans, then?" you ask the big orc.

    "Since I was a young orc, just barely mature. That is when the last of my fathers clan perished. I wandered for a time, then began protecting my simple kin. It was tiresome, but the nights were safer, and the food better. I had planned on leaving the clan now known as Sullen Mountain before long, but then they were captured." The orc informs you plainly, taking another drink from his tankard.

    "I see." you reply politely, glad that for once his life had nothing to do with the cult youve been running into so often of late "Then I suppose life with my maniple has been much more, to your liking, than protecting the New Clans?" you ask him amiably.

    "The fights are good and steady, my tasks are agreable, the food is nearly as good as your payment, and the work you set me too I would do but for the joy of it." her replies

    "Then I suppose the prospect of our next mission is quite pleasing to you then?" you ask, rising again.

    "I look forward to our arrival in uurlanth more every day." the orc replies, his content features offset by the animalistic smile he wears only when raiding or talking of battle. You look out at the celebration as you leave the Orcs, Laelith seems to have taken over the entertainment, and has a fire dancing above the crowd with the drums, horns, pipes, and any other instrument that can fit itself into the raucous running tune your men have started. Jayne is now talking with Sansa, who is admirably sober yet, and across the party Kyria seems to have a group of soldiers engrossed in some story.

    You make your way over to Kyria and the group listening to her "And thats the best part!!" she exclaims "The dolt was so dumbstruck that all he could manage was 'oh, sorry to intrude' and he walked out, that easy!!" the entire group erupts into laughter, barely managing to lift their glasses to you as you approach.

    "I'm assuming I missed the best part?" you ask sheepishly, a small grin on your face.

    "No, you heard the best part, just missed the what makes it so funny." Kyria teases you "How goes it, Justinian?" she asks you, heading over to the kegs with you.

    "Well enough" you reply "How are you getting along with Degrian?" you ask, filling your tankard one last time.

    "He's a bit of a workaholic, but agreeable enough." she replies, taking a drink as you walk over towards Laelith, Kyria following you.

    "Why is it that you left Laelith all to herself after dragging her into the middle of the crowd?" you ask the dwarf, sipping from your drink.

    "She's so reclusive, I thought it would do her well to be with as many friendly faces as possible." Kyria replies "And shes so incredibly cute when she's nervous." the dwarf adds.

    "You just wanted to torment her." you accuse, taking another drink.

    "Well, what else am I to do with a recluse at such a well put together party?" she asks you.

    When she does she sets off one last spray of flame, before she takes a bow and heads towards you, looking rather exhausted. "thank you for saving me." she says breathilly, clearly sweating as she puts her arm around your waist and leans on you for support.

    Looks like Laelith won one of the bets that the girls had going.

    Ah, one more thing to do during these 2 weeks of preparation: train a signal corps from amongst our scouts, and those showing aptitude from within each of the companies.
    The scouts have our very valuable telescopes ( I think we have 4 in all) for long distance communication, and someone wanted to attempt battlefield communication.

    I agree with all this except finding a way to slip her back into the tent. An army camp wakes early and stays awake. There's no hiding it, and I'm not even sure we want to.

    Simply put, all the girls need to know that we're going to be shagging all the others. I don't think concealing it is going to help anyone, and might just hurt feelings even worse than being open about it. Assuming feelings will even get hurt, that is. We've been pretty damn open about our intentions, and concubines are common knowledge and practice.

    I second displaying it openly. We aren't hiding it, remember how every time we did anything with any of the girls they all knew about it hours later? Yeah, that's camp gossip for you combined with the fact that all the girls are friends anyway. No point in trying to conceal it. Let's sleep and cuddle with our first waifu then walk out with our arm around her and a big ass smile.

    Throw in my vote for that consensus. If you guys are insisting on sleeping with each of them individually first, we can do all that now and then save the group bonding time for the post-campaign celebration after going home.

    With a content sigh you settle back into your cot, a little longer abed does sound rather tempting. Laelith responds by draping an arm and a leg over you "Mmmm better." she mumbles falling back to sleep.


    Eventually you both wake up, and stay awake, its midmorning by the time that happens however. "So, what will you tell the others?" Laelith asks you, putting her robe on.

    "What others?" you ask, searching through your chests for a tunic that doesnt look as dirty as it is.

    "I'm flattered, but you can give me an honest answer." she replies, turning to smile at you.

    "You all have your own place in my heart, and what order I share a bed with you doesnt change that in the slightest." you reply honestly "But we can talk about that more later today, for now, it should be enough to know that I love all of you." you reply honestly, finally giving up and grabbing one that merely smells of dirt, with a few stains on the stomach. Laelith kisses you before leaving your tent, a happy spring in her step.

    You make your way over to where your detachment for Commander Nomz is gathering. Wulf is glancing about nervously, though before you can ask him what is the matter, Kyria walks up to you "Good morning Justinian, how was your sleep?" she asks you, smiling.

    "Fitful. I seemed to always have this damn lanky bony thing poking into me during the night. I suppose I should get a smaller, softer bedwarmer soon." Give her a wink and a kiss.

    You smile back "Fitful at first, but after a while it became quite restful." you reply, winking "How are the preparations going?"

    "After I finally got away from Degrian this morning, well enough." the dwarf replies

    "Excellent" you reply "now stay safe, and I just might have a surprise for you when you get back." you instruct Kyria.

    The curvy dwarf raises an eyebrow at you "And what sort of a surprise would that be?" she asks you.

    "Well, I cant tell you, but you can have a hint." you reply mischievously, before catching her face and pulling her into a kiss, not particularly long or deep, considering where you are and what your doing, but considering that you wont get to see her for a while, you cant blame yourself either.

    Kyrias face reddens slightly to go with her smile as she pulls away "I guess I'll have to be especially careful then." she replies, before heading off to yell at her battalion.

    As she walks away, Wulf walks up to you, still lookihng nervous "Uh, commander, am I clear to depart?" he asks, glancing towards the tents again.

    I'm afraid not, son. Whenever a soldier leaves base he needs to have everything in order. You seem to have a few things that still need to be seen to.

    Word of advice, they don't just fall into your lap whatever you might think. Go tell her goodbye. I'll watch the force, so don't take too long.

    "I can watch the force for five minutes, go say goodbye properly." you inform your ward, figuring you have the situation nailed.

    "I, umm... that would be a bad idea." he replies, worridly.

    "And why is that?" you ask, starting to feel worried.

    "Lena, she got into one of Sansa's less, intense, liquors last night... I ended up having to carry her back to her tent, and Bellatrix was too gone to do anything about that last night, but..." Wulf explains, clearly worried about the hung-over protective sisters ire being turned on him.

    Alright, answer me one thing Wulf. How do you feel about her? I'll walk with you and wait outside in case Bella tries anything physical. But you should at least tell her goodbye if you care for her. If it's more of a passing fancy, well, I wouldn't risk it and it would be best to stop it here rather than risk breaking her heart.

    "All the more reason to deal with it now." you reply to him "If you let Bellatrix stew on this she could very well turn Lena against you while your gone. I'll go with you if you like, but provided the tale you tell is the whole truth of it, you have nothing to fear." you reply

    The boy sighs "And the detachment?" he asks, still nervous

    "Thats what battalion captains are for, Wulf. The men wont break to chaos in five minutes." you reply motioning for him to follow you.

    When you reach the tent a cracking voice calls out "Who is it?"

    "Ah, Wulf. I, um, I came to say goodbye to Lena and, um, see how she's doing." the boy replies.

    "I'm dressed" the voice replies.

    Wulf ducks into the tent, and you cant hear the whole conversation, mostly, you hear Wulf "Yes, drink water, and eat plain foods." ... "honestly your first time drinking? You had nearly half of Sansa's bottle." ... "NO!!!! Dont drink any hangover cure Sansa offers you, and dont let Bellatrix either, she's going to be angry enough with me as it is, I'd rather not have that on my head too." you hear laughter "What do you mean she wont be that mad?" ... "Thank you, Lena. I'll find you first thing when I get back." after a few more moments Wulf exits the tent, looking a good deal more relieved and optimistic, a controlled smile on his face.

    "And that, Wulf, is the feeling you want to leave for battle with." you comment as you near the waiting soldiers again "And as much as caution and patience can pay off, sometimes your better off charging straight down the center." you add "Stay alive, lead with courage, keep a level head about you, and you'll return victorious before long."

    Wulf snaps off a salute before bellowing out the orders to march and setting off. You decide to go and check on Collin or Degrian, whomever you find first, but are intercepted by Sansa. "Good morning, Commander." she greets you, catching your arm and leading you toward the kitchen tent before you can respond.

    "I know, but you havent eaten yet either, and that isnt something I can let slide... you need to keep your energy up." she informs you, raising an eyebrow.

    "Thank you for being so concerned for me." you reply "Poor Lena on the other hand..."

    "It wasnt fair to her. Everyone else had something to drink, and I wasnt about to have a new friend not able to enjoy _my_ party because the ale was distasteful to them. How was I to know that she would finish half of the bottle?" Sansa replies as innocently as she can "I'll make it up to her, I-"

    "Its not that bad." Sansa defends her concoction as the two of you sit at a table to eat "Its not that she did all that much, its what she did. Normally such a gentle, caring girl as I'm sure you figured out by now, but after the first few drinks it was all Wulf could do to keep her from challenging everything that moved to something.
