The girl you had thought to be a simple religious student is in fact the youngest daughter of the previous king, and the bandits that had attacked you had in fact been targeting her.After a rather traumatic night, in which you had killed a man and her religious guardian Adelheid had broken her vow of chastity, the day opens cold and bleak.Your party convenes in the common room. Ioveta sits far from her guardian, who in turn sits shame faced against the furthest wall. The soldier Theodore watches your party warily, a spotted hand on his pommel.For the most part your party is blind to the events of the night before, but Solomon sits with crinkled brow, a look of vague misery on his face as he surveys the opposing party.Ioveta looks to you as if she wants to say something, but closes her mouth before long and settles back for her far gazed musing.> we need to talk (speak about the night before openly with your party)> we best be off (gather the party to travel without disclosing last night's revelations)
>>34868068>> we best be off (gather the party to travel without disclosing last night's revelations)I was okay with where last thread was going, might as well replicate it.Also do you have a twitter? I wasn't sure when you were starting today.
>>34868068>we best be off (gather the party to travel without disclosing last night's revelations)you might just want to start where we left off, i plan on just replicating last thread.
(I'm going to speed through some of the stuff already covered unless y'all throw me for a loop and do something different)You consider your friends, and you consider the party opposite. Your men all seemed rather hung over and irritable. Probably not the best time to bombard them with potentially dangerous information."Well there's no time for slacking," you say, "Best get back on the road." It's a long road down to Arsur, and not without risk. Your men gather with a collected grumble. Judith, that is Ioveta, assembled with you.She cast you uncertain glances as she packed her little mule, and pointedly ignored Adelheid when the nun came to assist her.As you were leaving the craftsman came up with your helmet tucked under his arm."Sir," he said, presenting it to you.The lion looked as if it were snarling, fangs still hanging from its mouth, framing the eye slits of your helm. The length of its mane fell down around the shoulders and the rest of its pelt formed a draping cape. It really was good work.> acquired the Lion Helm (+1 War, +1Cha, +1 Lead, - to piety, -2 damage)Adelheid in particular looks on the helmet with disgust."Like the pagan Hercules, or some fur skinned barbarian," she said it so distastefully."My thanks sir," you said, sending the craftsman on his way.On the road and with your new information, you realise new precautions will have to be made. Particularly considering how far the next decent sized city was.> nominate a scout> nominate a companion to spend time with
>>34868068>we best be off (gather the party to travel without disclosing last night's revelations)after re-reading last thread I don't see any choices that i would really want to undo, the next few hours are just going to re-treading the same water until we get to the point we left off at.

Before you fully depart, the gambler from the night before slinks out from behind the stables, a sack in hand."Sir," he said, handing the sack to you.You open it to see a gleaming array of coins, of various different make."Your winnings, sir," he said, thumbing his forehead.You are surprised, you would have thought a gambling man would have disappeared with the coin. "I make my reputation on honest games," he explained, "And that was honestly won. Give my regards to the young miss." And with that the gambler slunk off again, leaving you 130 pfennings richer.Back to the matter at hand, you ask Franz to ride ahead to scout. He takes off with a grumble and a grin, begrudgingly happy for some time alone.With the road before you, you duck back to ride alongside 'Judith' on her mule. She still seems uncertain by your presence, keeping her eyes afield and only briefly looking up at you. There was discomfort writ all over her posture. It was a marked change from her previous enthusiasm.> what's wrong kid?> say nothing and wait for her to speak
>>34868442> say nothing and wait for her to speak
>>34868442>say nothing and wait for her to speak

You keep quiet, just riding in companionable silence with the girl."So," she said, casting a look up at you. She tugs at your new lion skin cape, "Is there a story to go along with this...thing?"There was, of course, but how much of it was suitable for her ears? That was a question. Should you tell her about the whole trip from Acre to Sidon, the lion savaging Alain and the flight to Tyre to try and save him. Should you mention your indiscretions with the women on that journey? Or just keep it to the lion itself. Your instincts as a story teller were flying in several directions.Still, the girl looked like she could use a story.> talk about the lion attack and that's all> be very candid about the entire trip> embellish and exaggerate, try to keep it entertaining> 'nothing much to tell, just thought it would look interesting'
>>34868545>talk about the lion attack and that's all>embellish and exaggerate, try to keep it entertaining
I'm speeding through some of this just to get caught up.
>>34868545> talk about the lion attack and that's all> embellish and exaggerate, try to keep it entertaining
>>34868594I would prefer just to start where we left off honestly.
>>34868646it's only 1 post away Anon, be patient.
>>34868545>> talk about the lion attack and that's all
"This?" you say, "A memento from my first adventure in the Holy Land.""Oh?" a bit of that curiosity came back to her eyes."It was a little after meeting Solomon. We were hired by an old crippled knight to escort his daughter to Sidon. A wedding, and we rode with her cousin who was likewise a knight. Sir Alain. A band of slaves to carry her in shelter, a maid to see to her needs, and us to guard her from danger.'Twas only a few days into our trip when trouble began. A lion attack. It ambushed Sir Alain, killing his horse and doing him grievous injury, a mighty swipe to the face that tore it to ribbons."I slew the lion then and there. A single thrust of my spear through its eye and into the brain. A good, clean kill.I ordered Solomon to take the man and ride ahead to Tyre, but it was for not. The man perished from his wounds after torturous days in the care of the church."You make the sign of the cross, as does Ioveta."Jehanne, the lady we were escorting, was greatly distressed. Her kinsman was dead, and our trip was naught but half way through. It was in the coming days that we were most tried. An ambush on the road to Sidon, and a storm under which the slaves fled. We found some shelter in a farming community and we...we enjoyed ourselves. Music, dancing, distractions from our trials.In the end we delivered the girl to her betrothed.I suppose I keep this lion skin to remind me of that adventure, the troubles we found and the friends made.""It's a very dashing outfit," she said, again fingering the hide. "I heard a story that in ancient days Roman soldiers would wear animal skins as a mark of prestige, and that some kingdoms in Africa still did the same." You shrugged, you couldn't say who did it. In truth you were inspired by Hercules. What man wouldn't aspire to be like that ancient Greek hero, at least in some respects. "This Lady was lucky I think, to have you as a protector," Ioveta said, "Was she beautiful?"> yes> not as beautiful as you
>>34868704> yes> not as beautiful as you
And now we're all caught up, and my posting rate will slow down again.
>>34868704>> yesSimply, also I'd rather not actually have our cock involved in this powerplay if we can help it.
>>34868704>> yes"Beauty, however, doesn't seem to buy much happiness by itself"
>>34868704> yes> not as beautiful as youShe gave US a compliment, it only fits to repay it.
>>34868704Yes>>34868741If we want it involved, that isn't the way to go about it anyway. We need to be the super cool untouchable desirable guy, instead of actually hitting on her
>>34868923honestly I stated this last thread that if our cock gets involved its going to be a far more overt powerplay for the throne than say if we placed Hugo in our stead, not only that but we may be spun as a power hungry heaven thanks to our new Helm.Honestly I think if we are making our play for power we do this two ways 1) through the undecided lords of the realm & we bide our time until the civil war is at a halfway point or 2) a populist uprising by going full Liu bei for now.
>thinking you'll get anywhere with flatteryI bet you voted for the kiss option before
>>34869014Hugo couldn't handle such a woman.
>>3486902787 charisma says hi nigga
>>34869038>Implying thats not we're hearHugo has a long way but hey thy're both young & not only that but Hugo has the makes of a white knight unlike say a certain Bard knight.
"Very," you say. Lady Jehanne had been an uncommon beauty, that was true. "Very beautiful." You think on how you'd last seen her, ragged and beat down by the drudgery of house work. A woman like that was not meant for scrubbing floors. "She had hair like fire," you say, "And skin like fresh milk. Her husband was very lucky. You smile at the young princess. "I find myself much in the company of beautiful women since coming to the Holy Land. Truth, it's one of the charms of the place."Judith, that is Ioveta, blushed a little but smiled broadly. It was good to see her mood improve.Before you could say much more a cry came from the back of your party.Chihirizahd was recoiling from Adelheid's raised club.> go see what was going on> send one of your men to deal with the affair (nominate)
>>34869081We're only like 17, you know.
>>34869102> go see what was going on>Write in"Judith, if you wanted any of the prize money from the gambling, see me after I've dealt with this."
>>34869102>> go see what was going on
>>34869102> go see what was going onGoddamit what are they doing?
>>34869102> go see what was going onHAHA TIME FOR HORSE
>>34869102>> go see what was going onAnd mention that we have her winnings from gambling
Before you spur off to deal with this interruption you look to 'Judith'. "I've the gambling winnings from last night. Come find me later if you want them," you say with a slight wink before head off to deal with the quarrel.Chihirizahd was recoiling from a furious Adelheid, her club raised to strike. Chihirizahd had a bruise forming on her face."Muslim slut," the nun was seething."What is this?" you demand, putting your horse between the two women."Nothing, master," Chihirizahd said, bowing low."This whore of yours was going through my property," Adelheid said, brandishing her crucifix in the other hand, "She was riffling through my baggage.""Is this true?" you ask your slave.Chihirizahd looks up at you fearfully. "Yes master, in a way," she said, "I was hoping to find some cotton swadding. I am...bleeding." She motioned to her nether region, eyes cast in shame.You had sisters, you were aware of the pain of women's divine punishment. But it wasn't one that wholly occupied your mind."I had tried to ask the woman," she cast eyes toward Adelheid, "But she refused to hear me." > punish Chihirizahd for riffling through Adelheid's possessions> instruct Adelheid to assist Chihirizahd in her monthly problem
>>34869444> punish Chihirizahd for riffling through Adelheid's possessionsspare her the lash thoughshould we ask Adelheid for some cotton swathes politely?
>>34869444>punish Chihirizahd for riffling through Adelheid's possessionsIf you need something ask me so I may procure it for you, don't rifle through things that don't belong to you to get what you need.
>>34869444>Custom: Tell Adelheid she can walk if she doesn't like ChiriWe don't need a nun to corrupt the mind of our new protege
>>34869444"Chihirizahd, if there is such a problem in future you shall, instead of going into her possessions without permission, ask me to speak for you if she, nay, anyone, will not hear.""Adelheid, since I have not heard your justification as to why you did not give her cotton swadding, I will not pressure you to tell me. However, I will ask for for the price of procuring this cotton would be, so I make take it out of my purse, and add it to Chihirizahd's debt, as well as punishment I will administer later."
>>34869550They're both on foot at the moment.
>>34869569Going off of >>34869568, what was Adelheid's reason for ignoring our muslim slut?
>>34869569She can try walking with a broken leg then
>>34869568I think this solves our problems well.
>>34869568eh why not
You dismount from your horse, and you slap Chihirizahd hard across the cheek.She dropped to her knees and held up her hands to you. "Forgive me master," she whimpered. You pulled her onto her feet."If you need anything, you come to me first," you say, "I will get it for you. You do not steal from others, even if they are being stubborn and your need is great."Then you looked to Adelheid. The nun was smiling a little. "Do you have what she needs?" you ask.The nun hesitated before nodding. "I do," she said, producing cotton bindings from her baggage. She handed them to you, and you handed them to Chihirizahd."Thank you master," she said through some tears."And why did you not give them when she asked?" you said to the nun.Adelheid shrugged. "She is a Muslim and a whore."> let that explanation stand> demand an apology> write in
>>34869743>> write in''she is a child of god regardless, does not god say that thou should turn the other cheek when offended?''

"Does the book not say 'judge not, lest you be judged'?" you asked."That's one translation," the nun replied."Then let's go with another, 'let those who are without sin throw the first stone', can you say you are truly without sin, Sister, to call another a whore?" you say it pointedly, and her wide eyes tell you she knows to what you refer."And if that is not enough," it takes some effort to keep your anger in check, "This woman is my property, and damage to my property is damage done to me. Be very careful when next you strike something of mine, Sister."The words turn her very pale and she nods. "O-of course, sir.""Then let us be friends," you say with a smile, "And carry on in good company 'til Arsur."She nodded with half a bow. As you remounted and rode back to the head of the company, you saw a cat-like smile break across Chihirizahd's face.'Judith' watches for your return with a curious look."What was the commotion?" she asked."Nothing serious," you replied.> entertain the girl with another story> ask the girl about her journey
>>34870190Give her the choice.
>>34870190>> ask the girl about her journey
>>34870190>you saw a cat-like smile break across Chihirizahd's face.Yep reverse stockholm syndrome right there
>>34870190> ask the girl about her journeyA story for a story, let's hear it!
>>34870190>ask the girl about her journey
"You've had a tale, now how's about one in return?" you ask, "Tell me how you came out here 'Judith'." You very carefully use her alias.The girl shifted on her mule. "Well it started up in Antioch," she said, "I was visiting my sister and my niece. We had more guardians then. But my oldest sister sent a letter asking if we could come to visit her. Now my other sister had to stay and deal with a local matter, but I thought to head off early and visit some of the shrines along the way. So we toured through Galilee. It was in Galilee where fever took Sister Ysbette, a wise old woman. We buried her at a shrine to Mother Mary. And on the way to Acre we were set upon a number of times by...bandits. It was shocking. We were nearly taken. Sir Jean led a counter-attack and said we'd meet at Acre but he never arrived."She had her eyes cast forward as she gave some of the names of the men in Sir Jean's company. "He'd been a templar," she explained, "And a good friend.""We were told the valley would be a short cut to Jerusalem," she said, "When your band arrived I worried you might also be 'bandits'. God's providence was smiling upon us.""We were told the same," you said."And that is how we came to meet," she said, "I might say more but..." she looked to your men with suspicious eyes.> you're smart to do so> you can trust my men
>>34870658> you can trust my menwho do we have with us that would betray our trust? Anybody?
>>34870658"You can trust my people, but none the less, it is a tale I should hear for all of our safeties, perhaps we can talk more in private about it tonight?"
>>34870755seconding, there are little birdies everywhere. We can get some alone time when we've camped.
>>34870658>> you're smart to do so"But if there is anything else I should watch for in the horizon, do tell me as much as you are able"
>>34870744Orlando, our muslim slut (I have a feeling she's more than meets the eye at the moment), and some of their loyalties when faced with lots of gold and a noble title will easily fall down.>>34870755Whoops, missed out a part.>"You can trust my people, but none the less, it is a tale only I should hear at this moment, for all of our safeties, perhaps we can talk more in private about it tonight?"
>>34870755Disregard this>>34870744. I'm supporting>>34870755
>>34870658>>> you're smart to do soLike we can trust Orlando to not fuck up
>>34870658> you're smart to do sobut> you can trust my men
It was wise not to speak too openly on such matters, but still it frustrated you to hear only half the story."You can trust my men," you said, "Within reason. But if there are things you wish to say but cannot, find me later when we make camp and we will continue this conversation in private."A light blush lights 'Judith's' cheeks. "Yes, in private," she said.The day passes into night as Franz returns with nothing to report.Your camp is assembled. Hugo pitches your simple tent and Chihirizahd settles within. Theodore helps Sister Adelheid erect two others for themselves and your companions.Once that was done Franz set to the task of cooking a quick dinner.It was not wise to leave your camp unprotected, even if Franz had uncovered no danger.> assign two guards for the first shift> keep company with a companion(nominate)
>>34870981> assign two guards for the first shift

>>34870981we made Orlando stand guard last night, lets give the duty to Solomon or ourself.
>>34871020Seconding Welf & Chiri know of our ambition but Orlando is our most recent [personal companion] so I don't think we can trust him yet.
>>34871185The commander does not stand on guard. I believe HF said that the last time
>>34871185Oh if thats the case then Theodore or Solomon can take Orlando's place.
>>34871207That's fine but lets not give double duty to anyone without a good reason.
"Orlando, Teodore, first watch," you say. The two men don't complain as they take their plates of food off to the perimeter. You get your own plate of seared black bacon and slip into your tent.Chihirizahd lounges against your saddle-for-a-pillow. You set up your shatranj board as 'Judith' ducked in with her own food. She hesitated at the sight of your slave, but sat across the board."A game?" you ask, offering her the board.Judith crossed her legs and wobbled the tall queen piece. "Mhm," she nodded.> Chirizahd, please give us some privacy> Chihirizahd, fetch us something to drinkRoll 1d100, average of three

"Chihirizahd, fetch us something to drink," you say, scooting the woman off your saddle with an open palm."Yes master," she replied, slinking off.Iovetta was considered the board intensely when you turned your attention back to her. She moved a pawn."So who exactly are these bandits?" you ask, straight to the point.She waves a hand. "Some of them are bandits," she said, "But the attacks aren't random. In the first such attack Sir Jean said one of the men was an officer in Lord Zengi's court. He is known to have designs on Antioch and Tripoli. Perhaps he thought I'd make a suitable hostage."You took one of her pieces."My father was taken hostage once, when I was very small. His captor won a fortune in ransom, and I was held in his place. I remember very little of it though. Four years old and all.""I doubt my brother-in-law would pay such a fine ransom as all that, but it would embarrass him greatly. For me to be taken in the heart of his land makes us look weak," she moved a knight, "And truth, Lord Zengi has a reputation when it comes to women."You had heard something of that from Malik.You moved in to close a trap, and her frown grew stronger as she considered her next move. "There's a rumour he's courting the mountain men, the death cult of the Assassins. If that's true, well, no where is safe. They have people every where."You'd heard some tales of the legendary Assassins."That might explain how wide spread your problems are," you say, putting her in check, "Surely Zengi cannot muster great numbers this far into the kingdom."Chihirizahd returned with water and cups, she served you both and knelt by the board, eyes down cast."Truth," Iovetta said, "And damn! I just saw that!" she punched you in the shoulder as your trap closed, taking her king. She sat back and drank the water, considering you.> ask her about her family> wait for her to speak

I serious doubt Chiri is an assassin. She joined up with us months before we even met Judith
>>34871901Yeah, but questers are retards. True in larp, true on /tg/, true in vidya.
>>34871702Lets get the slave girl out of here for the moment whatever we do.Have her help Franz while we wait for Judith
>>34871901Maybe not an assassin, but certainly with her own agenda now that she's got Wilhelm (and his band, by proxy) round her little finger. All it took was singling him out of the hotel guests that night because of our excellent BARDing, and a couple blowjobs to hook him in.Too easy.
>>34871702>wait for her to speak
>>34871984>but certainly with her own agendaStop being a tavern slave. Done.Also, assassins don't send hordes of bandits.
>>34871752"Chihirizahd, can you tell me what you know of the mountain people, the death cult of assassins?"The girl shrugged. "I know what I hear," she said, "That they worship death. That they are fanatics that will gladly die for their cause, to be rewarded with many virgins in the next life. That they imbibe hashash and other things to give them visions of their god's will and to make them truly fearless in combat. Many stories I have heard, from where I have been kept. One man even boasted that he had been to their citadel in the mountains."You consider the girl. Should you be suspicious of her?"Whatever they are, they are rightly feared," Iovetta said, reassembling the board, "Even in the cloister we hear tales of them."> play another game (roll 1d100, average of three, nominate a stat to raise)> question Chihirizahd further

"Chihiri, go help Franz with the camp," you say."As it please you," she said, pressing her forehead to the ground before departing.You played more aggressively this time."So, my brother-in-law isn't likely to move heaven and earth for my safety," she said, moving a piece, "But he cannot let me be captured without resistance, so he sends a few templars to guard me. They are a dutiful lot, but we underestimated the effort. Our numbers were cut quick until we had only Theodore left. He's a good man, one of my grandfather's old retainers, but he is old and makes mistakes."You frown as your attacking line starts to dissolve."And Adelheid. I had thought her a good woman, looked up to her greatly in the cloister," she gave you a suspicious look, "It seems the world has a way of testing us in unexpected ways. Of everyone to break a vow, I had never thought she would be one to do so."Wait, what? She had caught your king in a perfect trap. Iovetta sat back, pleased with her victory.> best two of three?

You set aside the pices. "I concede to you," you say as you pack up the board. Iovetta pouts a little that the game is done already, but smooths her stomach as she sits up, proud to have won."And what is your next move?" you ask.Iovetta helps you put away your shatranj set, holding up the carry sack for you to slid it in."Hmm," she bites her lower lip, "I'd thought to see my cousin Hugh. He is count of Jaffa, and a good friend. Really more a brother in some ways. He was a supporter of my father, and loved him dearly. If any would give armed escort it would be him."Hugh of Jaffa, word had it he was fomenting rebellion against King Fulk. It was rumoured he and the queen were closer than was decent."About Sister Adelheid," you say. She carefully backs a step, brush loose hair back behind an ear. "We all stray from the righteous path," you say, "But its how we hold ourselves after we sin that define us. Not our sins alone."She turned your words around, twining her fingers in her lap as she did so."There is truth in that," she said, "Still, what is seen cannot be unseen."> that's life kid, best to learn how to reconcile with how the world is> see to your own virtue and you will be well, and trust that god has a plan

>>34873038They're useless for that too. Peasants are shit at fighting, hence the failure of revolts.And again, willhelm would literally laugh at the idea.

>>34873371The point was that we're tempting her to fuck us, not to protect her virtue.
>>34873265We can try the "Have the peasants guard a fortress" ploy to trick any enemies we have, but that's the extent of how useful peasants will be. Peasants militias would be good for bringing order to the land, though.
>>34873366>>34873265Numbers need food, anons.Also, there's no reason to even fight them. They can't take a city, and they won't burn their own fields. Solution? go hunt down that pesky german, kill him, and parade his head and dress on a lance until the peasants go home.And then massacre them.
>>34873394My apology, my english is terrible
I'm just going to step in on this issue and say, definitively, that there is no chance of a peasant uprising working. Peasants are not soldiers, the peasants of the Holy Land are overwhelmingly not even Catholic, and the things that enforce ruler ship in Ancient China like popular support hold no weight in feudal Europe.I try to stay neutral on these things, but there are basic facts about this society. Wilhelm would be considered insane for trying something like that. He would definitely be executed for treason/possibly for heresy as well.
>>34873416point but again I'm not pressing a purely populist rebellion the numbers of course help but we need a trained core instead a straight up rabble & that means picking those on the side of the road & those who will get trampled.>>34873435Fair point then.
>>34873411how would having undisciplined peasants doing anything help with bringing order?
>>34873526Well, it would reduce the number of people alive to cause disorder!

You pack up the shatranj set. "Sins a thing you've got to know if you want to keep from it," you said, "We're by nature sinful creatures, or so the Church says, but recognizing sin is hard. So you've got to look at it, see it, and know it for what it is before you can fight it."You tap the bag. "When you play the game, do you blind yourself to what your opponent is doing? No, you've got to watch carefully, study his moves, know what his intentions are. Or he'll creep up on you, and take you before you even realise what's happening."She frowns but nods."Then I shall be very careful," she said, "And watch very carefully." She said the last with a smile as she ducked out of the tent.The next day came, and your camp was taken apart quickly.Another outrider should be named, and you think one set for longer than just a day now that the city was gone from the horizon and only the road ahead of you.> send out a scout (nominate)> nominate a companion to ride with

You instruct Hugo to ride forward as a scout. He nods, spurring his horse forward, his blond hair grown out into a small shining banner as he flew down the road. It was a dangerous task, but you thought Hugo up to it.Then you drew up on Solomon."Sol," you say."Wil," he replies with a nod, "Tired of the womenfolk?""I thought to spend some time with my brother-in-arms," you reply.Solomon laughs. "I do not fully blame you for seeking out what women you can, but the men would like to see more of their leader as well," he chided, "It is good though, that you think so highly of me.""How are the men?" you ask."Holding strong, but keen to be in Jerusalem.

"So..." your eyes dart back to Adelheid on foot, trundling beside 'Judith's' mule, using her cudgel as a walking stick.Solomon rubbed his chin. "It was...different," he said, "Mad, almost. It possibly should not have happened." He frowned. "I have never forced myself on a woman, but after that night I..."He stirred uncomfortably. "I did not force myself on her, but when it was done she looked at me in a way that hurt. The power a woman has in her glances, in her small gestures.""Women are trouble," he concluded, "They have you thinking two things at once." "But was she, y'know."A begrudging smile.

"What about our troops?" you ask, "You say they're holding, but give me your opinion on them."Solomon nods. "Aye, they're a good little troop. Steady in the fray. I was impressed how well we held together in the ambush. We've no cowards in our number."He looks over each of your soldiers, all mounted and watchful. "I'd judge the weak link to be Orlando, though not for lack of heart. His spear arm is simply the weakest, but I think you can count on him. Welf is a good fighter, but I think he favours foot combat to the horse, and he could use a spear to match the rest of us on a charge.""I don't know this Theodore, or if we should rightly call him one of ours, but he keeps a good hand for his age.""What about my squire, how would you say he's coming along?" you ask.Solomon grinned. "Hugo chafes to be older than he is and a foot or more taller, but he's showing promise. Don't burden him too much with tasks though, or he might break. He is still a boy, and needs time spent around others his age.""I think we've a good bedrock for a band, but we need more men," he concluded, "Ranged support in particular. Archers, or slingers even. A good company of foot would make us a small band worth our weight in gold if we go the mercenary path."Something to consider.The week rolls along until you see Hugo flying down the road, spear high."Fighting on the road!" he called, "Fighting up ahead.

You motion with your spear. "Men, form a wedge on me," you say, "Women, keep a safe distance. We ride!"You spur your horse onward. Hugo is at your left and Solomon on your right. You come down the road to see the fighting.A Templar flag holds firm in a line of men, both infantry and horse, as they were pressed in by Saracens on horseback. They're line was closing down into a near circle as they were pressed around their banner. You could see little of the details, though you saw not all the defenders were Templars. It was hard to get a clear count of numbers, but you saw that the Saracens had numbers on the Franks."Egyptians," Solomon said the word with such fury you were worried he'd fly ahead of your party.> strike the flank fast and hard (roll 1d100, average of three) > Try to hook around to strike the rear of the Egyptian force (roll 1d100, average of three)> hook around to join the struggling Franks in their line (roll 1d100, average of three)

You fly by the fighting, and you fly by the flank. A few startled Saracens turn to watch you pass, and some of their fighters break of from the fray to match you. You swoop about like falcon coming down on a dove, turning around the road and bearing down on the back of the Saracens. A rough line of spears had formed to meet you, but it broke on your charge. You felt your lance hit hard against some poor fool, before your world was filled by a towering, swarthy Egyptian on horseback with a long straight blade in hand all thick with gore.Your men are caught in different combat, cutting down men left and right. The Egyptian slaps sword against shield and closes on you, single combat in the heart of a roaring melee.> 7 passes, strike beats thrust, thrust beats bind, bind beats strike, block breaks all

You bring your spear around and strike the Saracen from his horse. As he tries to climb from the dirt your spear tip finds his throat, and he is pinned where he lays."You are my prisoner, sir," you say.The Egyptian casts aside his sword, and lays down with eyes closed, accepting his capture.The dust clears as a few Saracens manage to flee, the wounded put to the sword.Your men have managed to make it out wholly unmolested, though Orlando has a cut on his arm that he is nursing and Welf's shield is heavy with notches along the rim.The leader of the Franks shoulders toward you, sword raised."My thanks," the heavy templar said, his white surcoat pink from blood and gore. His men, both secular and temple, stand relieved.You waves over to the cavalry that was with him and they come trotting up. You spot a familiar face."We are in service to Count Hugh," the templar said, "keeping this road safe from bandits. Never thought to see men of Egypt so deep in the kingdom." He kicked your prisoner hard."Only a fool lowers his guard when lions prowl outside," Malik said, lowering his chain veil. He smiles to see you. "Well that we meet again Sir Wilhelm."His daughter comes up beside him, nodding to you as she raised her spear."Sir Wilhelm?" the templar looked between you, "Well good to know our rescuer's name. I am Sir Joyce."> Malik! I thought you were in Antioch!> Well met Sir Joyce, and welcome to our aid

>>34877110Or that they rode through syria.
"Well met Sir Joyce," you say, dismounting. Your men and the other cavalry all dismounted as well. "I am Sir Wilhelm of Koblenz, and we are happy to be of assistance."From there you turn to your old comrade. "Malik, I thought you had fled north," you say as you embrace in a quick back slapping hug."Say loudly you are going one way," he said, "And then quietly go the other. We had heard Lord Hugh had need of mercenaries, so we took a ship to Jaffa."He looks to your prisoner. "And you have netted yourself a medium sized fish. This is Mehmed ibn Omar, cousin to the Sultan of Egypt. Worth a pound or two of gold. What are you doing out here, Mehmed?"The Egyptian simply glowered at the Syrian mercenary.You brought your womenfolk up to the field."Would you like an escort to Asrur? It's the least we can do," Sir Joyce said, "We're making sure to escort travelers to safety. Do the king's job for him."> we'd welcome the escort> never mind us, you've a job to do

>>34877303yes yes it does work like that.
>>34877316But they may have been routed if we hadn't assisted them? There's no reason at all to admonish Hugo here.
>>34877381Agreed. Though, we could coach Hugo in maintaining a cool head.
You shake your head. "You've an important job to do, and I'd see that you do it before looking to us. We've swords enough," you gesture to your men.Sir Joyce shook his head. "I cannot let you go with nothing. Take ten of my footmen to Asrur at least." He frowns at 'Judith' strangely, then looked back to you. "I insist," he said, placing a hand on your shoulder."Further north brings us into the lands of Lord William," Malik said, "Who is twin to Lord Gerard. My daughter is wanted on a count of murder, most unjustly, in his lands. If you do not wish to take the footmen, my lancers will be happy to provide escort." Malik has a body of ten lancers, as well as himself and his daughter.Neither seem willing to take no for an answer, honour bound as they are to assist you.> take the footmen> take the lancers

"I thank you for your offer Sir Joyce, but Malik and I have ridden together before," you say."None taken sir," he said, "Shall we meet again in Jaffa?" he said to Malik."If God wills it," Malik replied. The two shared a small embrace before Malik was back in the saddle.Sabeen rode up. She pulled her helm off, her hair grown thicker since last you saw her. She looked you up and down, an amused twinkle in her eye. "Nice helmet," she said, rapping it with her finger knuckle. "Might get one of my own some day."Solomon binds your prisoner and throws him over the back of his horse, chuckling as he spoke to the man in a language alien to you.The Lancers formed on you as the Templar and his men began a march up the other direction of the road, waving farewells as they departed."A good man, Sir Joyce," Malik said.When Adelheid and 'Judith' were back in your number he bowed to them both."A pleasure," he said. Adelheid had a suspicious eye for Malik, but 'Judith' replied with a bow of her own and said something in what you thought was Arabic. Malik's eyes brightened, and he said something back to her in that tongue.It is some days to Asrur.> nominate a scout> nominate a companion to spend time with

Guys why not send Theodore? The guy mentioned he was a trained scout
>>34877967I'm right there with you anon.
You send the old Armenian ahead, and bring to your side your old comrade Malik."I am sorry to have caused such trouble for you," you say, "It is only because of me you were forced to flee from Sidon."Malik shrugged. "I do not mind, it has worked well for me. Count Hugh is a good master, better at least than Lord Gerard, and we have made a place for ourselves in his court." He smiled. "I am surprised to find you on the road. I had thought you would find your fortune in Sidon.

"Sidon held no interest for me," you say, "My fortune lies in Jerusalem.""As does the world's," Malik said, "All of creation seems to stake its fortune on that city. Who wouldn't be curious of such a place." He waved a hand. "Alas, as a Muslim I am barred entry to the holy city." He heaved a sigh at that, a wistful look on his aged face.> ask Malik about his current employer> ask Malik about his daughter

Additionally, the retards from the early stages get more retarded as they have to face higher levels of play where they must consider more than the here and now effects of their own, physical actions.

"How is your daughter?" you ask."My daughter?" he considers you. "She is well. Why do you ask?"You shrug. "She saved my life, a debt I've yet to repay."Malik nodded. "Yes, I suppose you do owe her a debt. I see you still have that slave too. I tell you thus, she is well but could answer your questions better herself." He said that with a very gracious smile. "I like you very much, for a Frank, and see in you the makings of a fine leader of men. Though your talents would be better appreciated in more foreign courts.""And how exactly is your lord's court treating you?" you ask."Hmm?" Malik stroked his beard, "Count Hugh is just, pays well and on time, and does not ask us to do unjust things for him. We seem most occupied with raiders out of Acalon, but after hearing of raiders on the roads, he put together a force to keep the peace from Jaffa to Sidon. A bold undertaking. King Fulk's forces are too busy on the borders of Galilee and Oultrejordan to do as much. Woe is it when a king cannot police his own realm.""I have heard tales that he is embroiled in some conspiracy," you say.To that Malik spits. "Count Hugh is no fool, but he's no web spinner either. I have heard the same such. Tales of illicit affairs and power plays. He merely wishes to exercise the will of King Baldwin, and restore natural rights to the local lords."He shook his head. "Calling it 'conspiracy' goes too far."Malik seems loyal to his new employer, ad much impressed by him.The night passes and you set up camp. Malik's lancers keep watch, giving your men time to rest.You sit back and look at your assembled party. In only a day or two you would arrive in the fortress city of Arsur, and finish the first leg of your trip to Jerusalem.End of Part 7---+1 war, +1 leadership

>>34878810Is it possible to become a business tycoon, Crusader style, by buying out local businesses and taking in the profits?Or is that not becoming of a knight? I know zilch about this period
>>34878899Just want to say i really enjoy your character interaction
>>34878895100 gold pieces.Get money, fuck bitches.Who cares about a shitty Egyptian leader who only got where he is due to family connections? Better to get paid and get cool gear
>>34878895>>34878904Exchange him to someone with more connections for a piece of land. Our prisoner gets proper treatment, someone gets a business opportunity, we get both freedom to act, some fame and land.
>>34878895He did not keep a reserve. Bad leader, we're better off leaving him alive so he can fuck up in the future.
>>34878895>>34878930>a hundred gold pieces >for the cousin of the Caliphyou are aware the caliph rule most of moslim land right?
>>34878948If we are lucky we can get a duchy out of this
>>34878948Not in this time period. He's a figurehead now. A pope, but less powerful, with less land and weaker armies and less influence.
>>34878914>Is it possible to become a business tycoon, Crusader style, by buying out local businesses and taking in the profits?It's not completely impossible, but I wouldn't bet on it. A lot of land and business are owned by the Church, Church affiliates, or the Italians.You don't have the resources to match these guys, but you could try your hand at starting a business when you have the resources to make extra revenue.
>>34878856Twitter is fucking worthless, but I have one just for quests because it is convenient.
>>34878972>You don't have the resources to match these guys, but you could try your hand at starting a business when you have the resources to make extra revenue.we would need a estate first. Somewhere to call our base.Here hoping the king will reward us it when we deliver him his sister-in-law
>>34878948There are a number of Caliphs in this period. The Caliph he's related to is currently the weakest of the lot.
>>34878972Good to know. And please feel free to smack down ideas if they are too exaggerated or unrealistic.For a historical quest, it's nice if a QM steps in before the discussion is dominated by an idea that may do nothing even if it gets popular support. Would stop some of the shitfling as well.
>>34878993Fuck still the ransom should be more than a few hundred gold pieces surely
>>34878988The King sounds like a fucking asshole, maybe we'll do better with the Queen
>>34879004I try not to but my nose into player discussion too much. The only idea that was outright, definitively impossible was the peasant uprising. The rest are just....a tad overly ambitious rather than impossible.
>>34879023so King of Alexandria is still on the table?!Get hype!
>>34879008Oh you could negotiate a handsome sum from the right person, whoever that might be.
>>34878993Will a Byzantine inventor build us an airship fleet if we pay him enough money?
>>34879029We could open a whorehouse called King of Alexandria
>>34879046You can pay him, sure.But he'll be laughing his ass off all the way to Athens.
>>34879047Where is your ambition anon?
>>34879023I know we joke about Wilhelm being a shit at fighting and we clearly don't have any business trying to go the warrior route. But how strong is Wilhelm really? Is he stronger than your average knight?
>>34879037>whoever that might beso its either Chiri or ''Judith''
>>34879047We could also become the world's first rock idol, as we spread the divine word with our Axe.
>>34879074He's about as good as the average knight. No one is going to diss him for being less than the best, but he won't be placing in any tourneys either.Trip gone, see you guys later.
>>34879074No fucking hell anon he has 60 odd war he's above average at best>>34879047the real Alexandria or bust anon
>>34879080I don't get all this paranoia about Chiri. It would take a truly remarkable set of coincidences for her to be someone other than an intelligent and ambitious bedslave.Let's remember that Wilhelm was still a nobody with no queen letter task when he got Chiri
>>34879074We are going to end up like this at the end with solomon and welfhttp://youtu.be/JMBbWE1wCKI?t=1m17s
>>34879062Not if we pay a person to supervise him and break some bones everytime the inventor gets distracted. In fact, he can just buy some new ankles when he's done with the fleet.
>>34879104Still feel bad for hitting her.
>>34879104yes it's a wonderful set of coincidences anon.....>>34879110kek
>>34879110crap didnt link correctly.from 1m17 and onward
>>34879104Yeah, Cherry's the best, it's just paranoia and the rumours of Hashashins that befoul her loyal service.
>>34879116>A warning posted all over the city: Serial bonesmasher targeting all the inventor and craftsmen. City terrorized.
>>34879104But damn was she happy when we put the nun in her place
>>34879145I will be pissed if we end up killing Chiri because of rampant paranoia.You never go full Cao Cao
>>34879159I just want an airship in medieval times. Justice is on my side.
>>34879177Wouldnt worry too much. She know how to please Wilhelm
>>34879199and by please i mean play
I think we should give our lion helm to Solobro>Solomon the lion of Nubia>Welf the Silent >Hugo is our paragon of Chivalry>Orlando the Brave >Willhelm the poet, King of Alexandria, remover of kebab & paragon among men.
>>34879145She reminds me of the women in Alto's reign of command quest. Smart and ambitious, but generally loyal
>>34879244Oh no. Im not going to give up on awesome Hercules hat
>>34879218Silence, there's no harm that has come from her playing us so far. If there is in the future, then we'll discuss this matter once more. For now, shush.
>>34879300>Silence, there's no harm that has come from her playing us so far. If there is in the future, then we'll discuss this matter once more. For now, shush.Oh ofcourse. I meant nothing with it. Infact i quite enjoy it if it turns out she is playing us
>>34879296Yeah, it's a lion we killed ourselves, too.
>>34879296b-but muh lion of Nubia>>34879300Sooner or later she is going to give us a bastard and they are ALWAYS trouble.
>>34879327Implying the bastard she gives us wont be Saladin. And he wont be a problem since we have nothing to cause a problem forChristian Saladin would be fucking awesome
>>34879311I think that if we keep choosing the tender moments over the lewd moments, we'll have her playing us for a future with us.
>>34879336yes he would but who knows what the future holds eh?
>>34879340this is going to be a weird power struggle. Yandere chiri when?
>>34879379Oh please. She would probably encourage us to find a wealthy land owning wife with a old last name since she knows we will always have her warm our bed. When we climb the ladder so does she
>>34879399She already climbed from working half a day to working a couple hours per day.
>>34879355Byzantine Airship fleets with Greek Fire cannons if I have anything to say about it!And we shall have them by...>captcha: 1251
>>34879503Anon anon pls I like my Historical fiction as it is.
>>34879493and she has the bonus of enjoying our company!That ought to count for something
Ofcourse we could just be reading too much into it and that she is just happy she got to leave the hell hole of a brothel with a knight who saved her and doesnt treat her terribly
>>34879580It was an Inn not a straight up brothel anon.regardless I wonder what Maliks connections are? if we can figure that out we could perhaps try & get friends on certain thrones in order to stabilise the region somewhat,
>>34879606he did mention our talents would serve will in foreign courts. As if he had an idea about which ones
>>34879625Now that brings up an Intresting idea, but we can hardly do that without setting our brothers in arms against us.
>>34879580Her job was pleasing men. Her current master can certainly please women. He's also the only one sharing privileges with her.So there'd be interest in Will getting more the right kind of glory, contacts and women.
>>34879665shared privileges doesn't mean love & loyalty anon, if we want her loyalty we have to bind her to us with something hardier be it her freedom or something else.
>>34879715>freedomFor a foreigner heathen, a woman with no family and a dark past. I bet freedom isn't worth much for her.
>>34879770We should however give her the offer next time we are with her.
>>34879770true but regardless we need something to bind her to us that is more that mere shared ''privileges'' any man can give her that we need something more what it could be however we have yet to know>>34879785Agreed it should be on the tables regardless of its current worth
>>34878710Ahh Ghost Quest. I did love it..Remember when we killed that dictator dude, overthrowing his government in order to help the rebels.We then promptly left the planet, letting the 8 or so rebel factions fight among themselves. 6 threads later, civil war between the communists and 'good guy' rebels. Much butthurt was had
>>34879785>>34879794>any man can give her thatNone cared because of her status. She learned lots of things from nobles and merchants looking for discrete company.She'd probably try the same on her would-be master. But that went tits up when we rolled too high.
Chiri seems to be rightfully grateful to Wilhelm. That doesn't mean we trust her with 100 percent of things but it doesn't mean we push her away with unjustified paranoia either.Basically being sensible and giving people an appropriate level of trust and not going overboard in any one direction.
>>34879941yes a certain degree of caution but no need to go full paranoia yet, if some Important companions in our care start dropping dead well we should start worrying.
