Not just them, but the other lords of the realm as well. Pagan of Oultrejordan and Walter of Caesarea. Raymond du Poy, Grandmaster of the Knights Hospitaller. Ancient Archambaud of the Knights Templar. The minor lords of Bierut and Galilee and the knights of further afield. All come to witness the trial in the High Court. The so-called conspirators, the Queensmen, rode boldly forward, banners flying, armoured and in arms as if to war.You watched them ride down the road, through the outer camp, come in through David's Gate.Even at your young age you knew this was a battle even if steel would not be drawn. You saw Hugh make a jest, and watched them laugh, but it was with a bitter edge. Lives were on the line here, not least your brother's.You note those who were not present. Lord Baldwin of Ramla and the Constable Barasan.You look back the other way, into Jerusalem. King Fulk's men were assembled, an armed greeting party with Prince Elias at the head. You thought for a second that there would be a great clash, a melee in the streets of the Holy City.But when Hugh rode through the open gate no blades were drawn and friendly offerings were made. You saw Hugh clasp wrists with Elias and share some comment with his neighbour a priest. You saw some of the nobles clap Hugh on the back, offering him grins and support.You saw all this, and wondered what it could mean for the trial coming.> try to meet with Count Hugh> go and find your brother
>>35634171>> try to meet with Count Hugh
Crusader quest> try to meet with Count HughGotta find out where Ramla is
>>35634171Talk to Wilhelm before we try to talk to anyone else. We don't want to say the wrong thing to the wrong person and fuck his shit up.
>>35634171> try to meet with Count HughGotta hear if he has found out of something
> fair warning today guys, my mum is going into hospital for a cancer thing and depending on how it goes I might have to cut this session short
>>35634294best of Luck to her HF cancer a shit
>>35634294No problem. Hope it goes well
>>35634171> try to meet with Count Hugh
>>35634294Well shit ay, good luck HF's mum.
You make your way down the battlements of Jerusalem. Some of the men-at-arms give you a friendly nod as you pass. You were known as a friend of the King after feasting by his side, the boy-warrior of Germany. No one blocked your path.You made your way down the muddy street towards the arrived party. They had dismounted by the outer wall of the Tower of David, giving their reins over to squires and manservants. Hugh's clothes were coated with the dust of the high road, every man still tramped the dust and sand off their boots. For all that he was here on a charge of conspiracy, the man wore good humour like a cloak. Even for the king's son.The sight of Elias sent a hot flash of hate through your gut, and the smile he shot you - so sly and knowing - was near enough to provoke violence. But you weren't here for him.Count Hugh grinned to see you, rubbed you 'round the bristly pate. "Ey squire, I see you've lost your hair but kept your head. If I should be so lucky it's only for the grace of god," he ran a hand through his own thick woolly hair and laughed."Where's Lord Baldwin?" Elias asked before you, "I thought all lords were meant for this most important summons."Hugh sighed, shook his head. "Poor man took a fever on the road, past just three days ago. We sent his remains back to his wife in Ramla. A sad thing."Elias blanched but kept his smile. "Yes, very sad." You saw his hands clench."Well, anyroad," Hugh slapped his hands together, "I could use a bath and some food. The trial is tomorrow?"(cont.)
>>35634677>"Poor man took a fever on the road, past just three days ago. We sent his remains back to his wife in Ramla. A sad thing."shame bout that
>>35634677>Hugh sighed, shook his head. "Poor man took a fever on the road, past just three days ago. We sent his remains back to his wife in Ramla. A sad thing."Based Raymond
>>35634677>Hugh sighed, shook his head. "Poor man took a fever on the road, past just three days ago. We sent his remains back to his wife in Ramla. A sad thing."That's one loose end taken care of. Orlando better watch his back.
"The day after," Elias said, but he had his head bowed and was already walking away."Well then, there you have it. I shall see you in court," Hugh said, waving after Elias' retreating back. When he was out of ear shot Hugh's good smile slipped, "You treacherous fucking snake," and spat. He flashes a grin at you, raises a thumb. "Let's be rested, and merry. It will give us all the best chances."Hugh and his number gathered up for drinking, catering down the broad road of Jerusalem. Some were making their way to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher to give some offering of thanks, or to ask for God's favour in the coming trial. Most had a mind for drinking, bathing, beds and with luck and coin, pleasant women to fill those beds. > two days to trial, and it is completely out of your hands. Nominate a companion to visit.
>>35634710We should confer with Hugh or Raymond to get more information at least.
>>35634710>> two days to trial, and it is completely out of your hands. Nominate a companion to visit.King Fulk, See if we can get our brother some proper quarters so he can be rested, bathed and shaved before the trial and some decent food for once
>>35634710Orlando hand a piece of Silver and call him Judas
>>35634710Iovetta time to confirm NTR or not
>>35634730Please anon, all of that can wait. All in good time. He will get what is coming for him
>- Prince Elias of Jerusalem (You uppity peasant!)Elias mad as hell
>>35634792Cant blame him for feeling inadequate compared to Hugo
>>35634710Adelheid or Hodierna for the gossiping.I'm guessing the Queen will be busy.Everyone control your hateboners.
>>35634727>>35634729>>35634730>>35634770>>35634792>>356348126 votes and not one of them are the same, sasuga /tg/
>>35634812What? I want to get Wilhelm out of his cell so he can be presentable for the trial
>>35634770That was confirmed in meta last session, faggot.
>>35634729I'll second this.
>>35634777>He will get what is coming for him
>>35634842yes meta Hugo don't know shit in game faggot
>>35634842His point might be that Hugo has no idea if that's true or not and it might cause drama down the line, even if we, the readers, know there's no NTR.
>>35634896Think Hugo has more urgent matters to settle first?
>>35634901>>35634896Hugo believes in Iovetta. Right guys?
>>35634911sure if you think so, but Hugo obviously felt very strongly about it last thread & at thirteen you're not exactly the most steady person when knowing what to do.
Rolled 4 (1d100)>>35634912Rolling for Faith
>>35634955Yeah, but even he should realise the survival/well-being of his brother is his number one priority. He is after all his only family
>>35634973>Hugos face when>>35634982and What could Hugo possibly do then?
>>35635027Thats....rather Superficial but better than nothing, still think Ntr talk would be better though but eh opinions.
>>35635091I just think that looking like a starved feral dog is gonna give us some CHA penalties. Also it would give Elias the chance to make "woof woof" sounds to mock us!
>>35635133eh let him Wilhelm isn't going to take the bait so easily.
>>35635133That's actually a good point now that I think about it. When you represent poor people in court, you have to make a point of making sure they are well-dressed. There's some real cognitive biases against people who dress sloppily in the courtroom. It hurts their credibility and makes the jury and judge less likely to find in their favor. >>35634710>>35634727I'll change my vote to >>35634729
When last you'd seen your brother he had been in an awful state. If he were brought before a court pale and unkempt, who knew what they would think. You thought you had some friendship with the king. Certainly, he had called on your company twice since the feast. Once to share with you a secret to boar hunting with spear, and another to show off a litter of pups born to his best bitches. He had made some noise about finding time to go hunting.Once the trial was past.During these visits you had seen Elias skulking around the Queen's company and swanning about Ioveta, and it had made your blood boil.You found the king in the gardens of the palace, stringing up a bow with a target set up the other side. He sent arrows loose, one, two, three. He was a fair archer. He was attended by court hanger ons, knights and nobles of no standing and most of Angevine extraction. When he saw you he smiled."Lad, bring me up that other bundle," he said, pointing to the quiverful hanging by a statue. You take it in hand as he finishes the set he has, and pass it to him. "In England they prize their archers," he said, "My daughter was married to William, son of Henry. Poor lad drowned and left my girl a widow. She keeps to the English court, sending letters when she may. He was a fine young knight. Would have been proud to call him a son. I fear what's to become of England with his loss and Henry so old."He loosed arrows as he spoke."Now did you want something?" he asked, setting the bow across his shoulders.
"My brother, your highness," you said, "His trial is coming and I thought he might be given better rooms for them. A chance to look his best."Fulk's brow lowered, a dark cast upon his face. But as his eyes took every corner of the garden eventually they came back to you with a nod."Fair enough," he said, "Though it is not my nature to coddle a traitor.""Thank you!" you bow but he raises you up."Think nothing of it, the boy has some rights even with the charge," he said, dusting off your shoulder. "Now run on to your sir!"You took flight just on his instruction, and as you ran near barreled into Ioveta."Oh, Squire Hugo," she said with a smile. Your gut twisted at the sight of her flashing blue eyes. For a second you pictured her caught in lustful embrace with Prince Elias, and hated her. "I was about to petition my brother-in-law, to give Sir Wilhelm better lodging." She spoke so demurely, like a good princess.-she bled a little but moaned like a whore-And you saw a shadow of that whore on her curled lips. Like ants biting at your gut you saw a shadow of it in her light step."Very kind of you my lady," you mutter, stalking on, "But the request was already granted.""Let me walk with you," she said, offering her arm.> take it> ignore it
>>35635298>> take it
>>35635298>> take itJust keep the anger inside of you Hugo
>>35635298> take itIt's time to find out
>>35635298> ignore itRemember kids being Hugo is suffering
>>35635298> take it
You take her offered arm with some reluctance, gut still churning as Elias' lewd boasts still range through your mind. She did walk with a light step, as if she might begin a dance at a moments notice, and leaned some what into your arm. Had she truly given up your brother on every measure? You felt a mild discomfort and...something else, at the feel of her against your arm."It will be good to have this business put aside," she said, "To have Wilhelm free at last. The charge is so much nonsense."You mutter some agreement but could not bring yourself to make much conversation, not about your brother and not with her.The two of you pass Sir Joyce, who casts you suspicious eyes and rises half from his seat, but keeps his mouth shut at the sight of the princess. She gives him a dimpled smile and his irritated glare turns into a grin."Princess," he said with a touch of the forelock.She walked with you all the way to Wilhelm's cell, and by order had it opened."He is to be given proper quarters," she instructed, "In the queen's wing."When the cell cracked open Wilhelm looked up to the both of you, blinking at the intrusion of light, a smile slowly breaking across his bearded face. You saw Ioveta's chest and chin lift as a smile broke across her own, her eyes beaming, and knew for certain in that moment Elias was a liar and yourself a fool, and smiled as well.She made as if to break from your arm and leap upon your brother.> keep her in hand> let her slip away
>>35635537>> let her slip away
>>35635537>> let her slip awayDa'awwwww
>>35635537>> let her slip awayI would say group hug, but they are probably gonna start making out.
>>35635368Hugo is Love Hugo is Life
>>35635537w-what could go wrong?
>>35635368Old Hugo maybe.New Hugo scouts like it is no ones business, fights in battle along side the king, duel rapist englishmen over a heathen's virtue and bed Templar's sisters.
>>35635537>> let her slip awayThings are going too well. Their lead witness is dead. Orlando isn't very credible given his motivations and grudge against his cousin. (Plus his shit charisma) And the lovers are unified so Wilhelm can get his CHA on. I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Maybe Constable Barasan will pull some shit? That can't be it because he's Hugh's most trusted man, right?
>>35635644No gathering of Harem? I am dissapoint anon.
>>35635662I think Hugo should try to bro it up with Blaise. The two are supposed to be battle brothers after all.
>>35635700He didnt seem to mind when Hugo and Solomon joined up with the king to deal with the raiders. Just a shrug and that is it
>>35635700Yeah, but Blaise is responsible for massacring an innocent village of Muslims. In front of Malik and Sabeen's eyes.Plus you know, Wilhelm and Blaise still hate each other.
>>35635781I actually think that while Blaise hates Wilhelm he still has some kind of respect for him
>>35635740I think a lot of people have an overly negative opinion of Blaise. He didn't even seem that pissed off with Wilhelm last time he met him.Blaise is one of those guys that only believes in strength. If he respects you, he won't hate you.>>35635781He doesn't hate Wilhelm as much as Wilhelm hates him. Blaise considered himself to be doing the right thing at the time. Besides, he didn't even talk Wilhelm down in front of the lord, when Wilhelm was accusing him. He praised his conduct in fighting the bandits and got on with his life.
>>35635846Truely Blaise is the best kind of rival
You let her slip from your arm and over to Wilhelm. He pulls her fast 'gainst himself, buried his face in her golden hair. He was breathing hard."You're not free yet," she said, holding to him just as hard, "You're not free yet. Not yet. But you will be."He gave an unsteady breath, pulled her head back and kissed her. She sighed against his kiss, eyes closed and arching into it, and you blushed for the sight of it. When they parted he muttered something you barely caught. "I am free," he said soft into her ear, and you saw tears spring upon Ioveta's eyes, and she thumped him once upon his thigh."We have to get you cleaned," you said, "Your hair cut, shaved, and looking your best.""Real food," Wilhelm insisted, "And a bath."And then he came to you and put a hand 'round the back of your head, pulled you into a hug as well. You gave a puberty crackling yelp of surprise, and squirmed as he kissed your bristly scalp."I missed you brother," he said, and when you pulled apart you were both grinning."I missed you too," you replied. Ioveta watched with hands bunched before her face, masking a wide smile."We've got a lot to talk about," Wilhelm said, "Come find me after I'm made presentable.""I will," you say, and he squeezes your shoulder once more as Ioveta leads him from the room.-
>>35635846he slaughtered a village of peace abiding saracens, your argument is invalid>>35635846>Sir Blaise of Normandy, 21 years old (hatred)yeah sure anon
>>35635846He praised Wilhelm because he was in cahoots with Lord Gerard to make Orlando look like shit and take away his land. I don't hate him for almost killing Wilhelm, I hate him for what he did before that. He's a shit and we can't hope to maintain our Muslim allies if we buddy up with him.
>>35635893>Sir Blaise of Normandy, 21 years old (hatred)>yeah sure anonAnd what exactly has he done to get back at Wilhelm since losing an eye? Oh right, nothing.>muh SaracensThat's basically a way of life for Crusaders around here. Look how many fucks Gerard gave.Orlando didn't look like shit, he was shit. He's still shit. That's why over half of you want him dead.
>>35635931>Orlando didn't look like shit, he was shit. He's still shit. That's why over half of you want him dead.I just want him ignored and forgotten. Being Orlando is a far worse fate than death
>>35635906>we can't hope to maintain our Muslim allies if we buddy up with himAre you sure you're a good Christian?
>>35635846>Another few days pass uneventfully when you find yourself in the hinterlands. It is actually less rough than the lands you passed through, with pastureland further ahead and woods running up the hillside, disappearing into the mountains. A village stands nearby, with peasants about their business.>"God's will!" the Norman roars, drawing his sword. His footmen give a hearty cheer and charge toward the village, their knights flying before them. Orlando is left ignored, yelling after the fools. Other knights look ready to join Blaise in his charge, and their footmen looked confused.>Torches were being set and flung onto hatch roofs. Dagger drawn and men gutted in the street. The peasants hadn't even time to flee. Blaise came in with a long axe in hand, laying into any passing figure from horse back. Even from a distance you could hear his blood drunk laugh.>You saw one knight and two men-at-arms grab a young girl and drag her into an unlit building. A boy tried to race after her but was stopped dead by a spear. It was carnage, the fire was spreading from roof to roof and the men reveled in it like they were drunk at a feast day.>Blaise took a brand and lobbed it over hand into a central building. When a young boy tried to flee the smoking building he brought his horse around to kick the child, and proceeded to trample him into pieces, all the while laughing.>The carnage was soon running its course, and you watched Blaise's men divvy up looted foodstuffs and the meager goods of the village. It seemed he now held command over the men down there.Yeah, nah, fuck him. He's called a Mad Dog for a reason.
>>35635976>Wilhelm>Good ChristianPick one
>>35635993>stealing a bride of GodI guess he really isn't. Just as well he won't live much longer.
Character sheet: http://pastebin.com/rZQ8vVBdYou are Wilhelm of Koblenz, and you sighed as you sank into the hot bath.It was a one person tub, set up in a chamber off your bedroom. In the Queen's wing of the palace. You felt a slight itch as the dirt was rubbed off your back, your old clothes stinking in the corner. A clean set, your best, would be lain out waiting upon the bedside.You did not just sigh for the pleasant heat of the water, but for the company. Ioveta pealed the dirt from your back with a huff and a hard scrubber. She was red, for the sight of you lying naked in the wood tub, and the heat rising from the water. It caused her hair to curl every so slightly 'round her brow and cheeks.She had a set of scissors lain out for when the bath was done, and some razors and tweezers as well.You had asked for a barber or some servant, but she had insisted upon tending you herself, and not even her sisters could convince her otherwise."You've lost some muscle," she sighed, a hint of disappointment in her voice as she scrubbed your shoulders, round to your chest. She was wet up to her elbow, dressed in her novice dress so as not to ruin any clothes of worth."I'll get it back," you said, flexing a bicep.She lost the scrubber in the water, and just ran her hands across your chest. She had a smile upon her face, and kissed you on the ear."Must you really shave the beard?" she asked, brushing it with the back of her fingers.> you must, beards were not in season> I suppose I could keep it for you
>>35636023If all nuns are brides of God then He's got to many fucking wives. And a polygamist.
>>35636052>> you must, beards were not in seasonFuck who would want a beard in such oppressive heat.
>>35636052>> you must, beards were not in seasonWilhelm's not going to die looking unfashionable
>>35636052> I suppose I could keep it for you
>>35636052> you must, beards were not in seasonNot in this weather.
>>35636052[x] Custom: Trim the beard
>>35636052"Maybe a trim then, to make it less unkempt"
>>35636055He's a god, he can do whatever he wants. Did you even read the old testament?
>>35636052She is doing Chiri's job!
>>35636052>> you must, beards were not in seasonI must say I'm really liking how we were moving with hugo. The Black knight of germany
>>35636052> I suppose I could keep it for youPeople with beards are perceived as being more trustworthy. Lets trim it though.
>>35636052> you must, beards were not in seasonIt grows back, come on
>>35636052> you must, beards were not in seasonWe can grow it out again when we're free!
>>35636120>The Black knight of germanyonly if Wilhelm is kill otherwise he's white knight as shit
You guys remember the trick learned in Cyprus.... well beards tickle.
>>35636224Why do you say that. Wilhelm is bard knight for a reason. He inspires loyalty. He doesn't exactly follow all the rules but i wouldn't say he's black knight material seeing as he's still very faithful. Hugo is slowly moving away from the faith and becoming more bold and pragmatic.
>>35636052>I suppose I could keep it for you
>>35636310Wilhelm is a friend of all. Which is why he takes betrayel so very hard
>>35636052>> you must, beards were not in season
>>35636310He's not saying that Wilhelm is a Black Knight. If Wilhelm is kill, Hugo will go full Black Knight to get his revenge.
You splash some water and laugh. "I'm sorry, but I must. Fashion demands it!" And the damned thing itched. You didn't quite see the appeal. She sighed, and simply got to the business of cleaning out your hair with soap and comb, lathing it with sweet smelling ointments. By the time she was done you were scrubbed pink, and felt a slight itch across your skin.When you pulled yourself out of the tub Ioveta watched with towel waiting, face quite red. She helped you dry, and worked a little shyly across your back and front. She still blushed when she dried you down below."I really can do this myself," you said."I must learn," she said, "A good wife tends to her husband." Then she sat you down upon the waiting chair, took up a pair of scissors and began to clip. She took away large chunks, fussing carefully, and then she shaved your beard away as well. She near cut you open across the cheek as she smoothed the hair away, her hands were not quite steady, but soon enough you were done and smooth as the day you were born.She dabbed at a small spot of blood on your chin. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry," she fussed, brows crinkled, "I'm really just not, God in heaven." She set the blade aside, her hands trembling. She seemed frightened."What is it?" you asked.She smoothed her skirts. "All my life I have been preparing for the church," she said, "And now I-I'm preparing to be a woman and I don't know what to do, how to do it right."> laugh, her fears are ridiculous> pull her into your lap and kiss her> take her seriously by the hand and reassure her
>>35636052>> I suppose I could keep it for you
>>35636424>> take her seriously by the hand and reassure her

>>35636462>>35636471>>35636480Guys, where is your romance and sense of fun?
>>35636501>>35636424Seconding that.>>35636511Iovetta is fragile right now, think about how she was tempted last night, as well as our precarious position.
>>35636424> take her seriously by the hand and reassure herJust how bad did Wilhelm's dungeon-beard look?
>>35636424> laugh, her fears are ridiculousDidn't mind before, PRINCESS
>>35636511She's a 14 year old girl under an immense amount of stress and pressure. Reassurance is the better option at the moment.
>>35636462Changing my vote here, to >>35636501
>>35636534Idort, she loves fun. Did you forget how wrestling her out of the mail was the best option?
>>35636424>pull her into your lap and kiss her
You take her by the hand and squeeze it. "You'll do well," you said, "Better. You'll be amazing."She frowned and twisted away a tad at your words. You gave a small laugh and pulled her by the hand. She gave a small 'huh!' of surprise as you brought her onto your bare lap. You kissed her soundly upon the mouth, and it takes her a moment to kiss you back. "You'll do well, Ioveta," you said, kissing her upon the neck, "Stop worrying so much."She giggled and held your head against her neck, feeling your tongue upon her flesh. You feel her breathing hard against you, twine her fingers through your new cut hair. "I guess I do worry," she said with a small laugh. She pulled your head away from where it mussed at her neck. She kissed you on the brow, and then the nose, and finally the mouth. It was a light kiss full of laughter."You're a fine a woman as there is," you said, and she laughed and blushed and kissed you again.When all was settled you came into your chambers, admired the spread out cloth. She picked up a tunic and held it against your chest, spread it out. "If only it were decent for a man to be bare chested," she sighed, lowering the shirt to down your waist and trailing a finger across your chest.You grinned as you pulled the hose on. "You fill that well," she said, skipping back. She laughed. "All these things I'd dare not say a year ago, just tumbling from my mouth." She was red cheeked and smiling, sighing as you dressed. "I wish to be wed already," she said and lay back upon the bed.It sent a sudden chill down your spine.Even if you survived this court, a wedding might not be possible. She was princess, and you were a landless knight.Still the way she lay and eyed you from the bed, a little bit the shy novice but something else as well beneath, could not keep your thoughts sober."You fill them very well," she said, blushing and giggling.> join her upon the bed, you may never be wed but you had the night> keep to your feet
>>35636986>> keep to your feetWhy?For we are confident she shall be ours, regardless of our landlessness, regardless of the trial, we SHALL persevere.
>>35636986> join her upon the bed, you may never be wed but you had the nightIf we die atleast she will carry our child!
>>35636986> keep to your feetNO MAIDENHEAD! BAD WILHELM! BAD!
>>35637023>>35636986ThisWe also need to practice for the Trial, set out a starting speech and such.,
>>35637053But Anon, we can just use the Cyprus trick again!
>>35637070>>35637023>>35636986This, we don't know shit about the Courts, Iovetta should.We need to ask for advice, not fool around in bed. The night will be long, but it shall be long with purpose.
>>35636986> join her upon the bed, you may never be wed but you had the night
>>35637073I don't think we are sound enough right now to do that anon....
>>35636986>> keep to your feet
>>35637114>Tfw you can only typecast lovetta as NEET Princess
>>35636986> keep to your feetTell her we want her badly but it will have to be after the trial
>>35636986> keep to your feet>>35637147this guy gets it
>implying we've been accused of taking Iovetta's virtueStill, it might be better to have a heated spooning session than ponos in vagoo.
>>35637193anon our conduct has to be beyond Virtuous beyond the shadow of a doubt if we are dismiss this case.speaking of we should question just why Fulk is doubting his Vassals loyalty, he might even say something stupid
>>35636986> join her upon the bed, you may never be wed but you had the nightI'll bite, but no convenient confessions in public.
>>35636986>> keep to your feetNigga do not fuck this up
They are obiviously going to accuse us of taking Iovetta's virtue if they get pressed into a corner. Orlando may panic and use the fact she slept in our tent for quite a few days on our journeyLets not take it just now
Fuck yeah Crusader Quest?I hope your mom is okay OP, my prayer is with her!
>>35637283Do you really want to put her through a vaginal probing? Let's just say that we were always in love and didn't fuck until tonight. Pre-dna courts were far more trusting of peoples statements.
>>35637283this keep to our feet & everything will be fine, If Fulk baselessly accuses Hugh & Melisande of Infidelity & we are disproven as to having breached Iovettas virtue It's going to make Fulks faction look like a bunch of paranoid numbnuts

You keep to your feet, though it left you sore to do so. Ioveta sighed and flicked a foot toward you before sitting up."The trial day after next," you said, "I must prepare for it. As much as I'd like to do other things...."Ioveta smiled and stood. "I wouldn't worry," she said, brushing back her hair, "Sister has it in hand. She is speaking with Count Hugh and Pons about it now. They'll have it in hand, they've the best legal minds in the kingdom at their disposal.""But I don't," you said, "And I know next to nothing about the courts of Jerusalem.""Well," she came before you, wrapped her hands about your hips, "Usually one of your station would be tried in a lower court, but since you are being tried in conjunction with men of higher standing you have become very lucky. You get to stand at the High Court. It's more a tribunal than something you might be used to back in Germany, made up of the other lords of the land who listen to the evidence and pass judgement."That was a little different, more like a peasant court."The High Court doesn't just sit for trials mind," she said, "They also discuss the passing of laws and the dispensation of land. It's very..." she struggled for a word."Parliamentarian?" you offered. She shrugged. It sounded better than being setagainst a single stranger."If worst comes to worst, you can always demand a trial by battle," she said, as she sunk down to her knees."What are you doing?" you asked as her hand moved across your cod piece."You worry too much," she said with a bright smile, "And there's this trick I learned the other night, in a prison cell." She slipped your hose and reached...And then came a loud rapping upon the door, a key turning as your bedroom door was opened.> roll 1d100, average of three

The door swung open right as she pulled you deep into her...And in walked Hugo, who was not alone. He was chatting amiably with his companion for but a second before their eyes found the pair of you. The woman. She burned bright red for the sight of it, her dignity and proud carriage all but lost. A beautiful dark eyed woman of golden hair and honey-tan skin, who paused in your door way, a small crown around her long braided hair. The Queen herself."Ah!" Ioveta pulled herself away with a speed that was like the devil itself had taken a scourge to her, flying back on her buttocks and coughing as she landed."Shit!" you pull your hose back up but its far too late. They'd seen everything. Hugo was as red faced as the queen.The Queen took a steadying breath, her brows raised high. "Why this room is so dim," she said in a tight voice, "Did you see some movement, dear Hugo?""N-no my lady," the room was in truth quite well lit."It would be a shame if my dearest sister, famed for her chastity, would do something so foolish at such late an hour," Melisende said, her brows lowering, "It is a good thing I trust her to keep a clear head.""Yes, my lady," Hugo replied, adjusting his tunic.Ioveta sat mortified, she looked like she might cry, her face red and sweating, her hair all a mess.You stood with hands before your bulge, scrutinized by the Queen's hawkish gaze as she stepped lightly into the room.> I can explain!> wine, your highness?> probably should just keep your mouth shut

Queen Melisende took a seat on your bedside and attempted a pleasant smile. Hugo came forth bearing something, set it on the bed. Your helm, and your sword. Queen Melisende took the sword up and drew it, marveled at it while considering you from behind it."It is good to see my sister has a man so well equipped," she said, and shuttered the Damascus sword back into its sheathe, "For her protection, of course." She considered you with a smile.Her tone had a dangerous edge but also...flirtatious? It made you grin despite the fear. "Wine, your highness?" you suggest, going to the bedside table where a pitcher was kept."Please," she said, and took an offered cup. She drank a little. "I owe you a great deal Sir," she said, "And as such I shall choose to see and not see at my leisure."You drank some of the wine, steadied your nerve. She was a beautiful creature this queen. It made you feel all the more awkward, like a virgin boy again. Ioveta picked herself off the floor as innocently as she could and came to stand beside you."You come with high regard," Melisende said, "My cousin is quite taken by you, and my sisters both vouch for you.""But..." you say, pouring a cup for Ioveta."You are a landless knight, and Jerusalem needs friends," she said, "Now, my husband has a son, the Count of Maine. And I have also received a letter from John Komnenos, who has a young son too. Roger of Sicily, likewise, has a son. Roger has always thought the throne should have passed to him on father's death. Jerusalem has wed too much within it, we must start looking beyond our borders."A Count, a King and an Emperor."Pray, has the Pope or Kaiser Lothair vouched a candidate yet?" you asked, keeping your tone light, "Or mayhap Prester John has appeared from the wilderness as well."Melisende smiled at that jest, drank her wine.
>>35638247That's Adelheid's nigger fucking actually
"You see where it is," she said, "You will not be punished, no matter what Fulk wants, but I do not think you can have my sister's hand as well.""We are betrothed!" Ioveta stamped her foot, face red and angry."Betrothals can be broken," Melisende said, a hard eye for her sister, "And you will be compensated if you wish. Count Hugh has need of a new lord for Ramla." She paused as she looked into her cup of wine."No!" Ioveta looked like she might leap at her sister.Melisende half rose from the bed, a look of growing irritation on her face. "You are a princess," she said, "We do not get the luxury of marrying who we choose."Hugo squirmed uncomfortably. You were light in the chest, in an unpleasant way. A Count, a King and an Emperor. Why should they consider you besides all that?"Why are you doing this?" Ioveta asked, tears drawing from her eyes."Because I must," Melisende said, her own voice shaking. With anger perhaps. Or something else.> very well (take the lordship of Ramla)> surely there is something I could do

You shake your head. Fuck Elias. Fuck Roger. Fuck John Fucking Komnenos and his whole bloody empire."If I'm not worthy yet, I will be," you said, "Just set for me the task and it will be done. I'll make for her a dowry that none may deny."Melisende considered you. "Conjure up an army six thousand strong," she said, "Build for me a fleet to match the Greeks and Italians both. Capture for me all of Damascus. You speak bold words, but what are words?""If it takes me ten years or more, or just a day, ask it and I'll do it. Anything," you looked to Ioveta, who looked up to you a-whimperig, her eyes so large and face so pale. "Name it and it will be done." You could not stand to look at Ioveta so wretched and not hold her. Your eyes returned to the Queen who still considered you, her face like still water.> roll 1d100, best of three

>>35638911That would be a start.>>35638925We CAN win with smaller numbers, we simply need them to be elite, and having opportune moments to rest, with a surplus of equipment. All have to be on horses for maneuverability too.
We will need local troops. That means muslims.Now that i think about it. Malik appears to be a Syrian of noble blood. Maybe we could get his help in freeing Syria from the Turks. Granted convincing them to hand it over to us, a christian is a whole different case
>>35638974> mnb mechanicsOh God, this whole story would make a great Mount and Blade campaign.I too have played a Mount and Blade charisma whore with crappy combat skills, relying on invincible companions to kill everyone for me.

>>35638986>>35638974Peasantry is terrible outside of sneak attacks.Only time I could imagine that being useful is having the peasantry revolt inside a city to sabotage the armies' food/water/equipment, and even that would be put down very fast, and unlikely to happen to boot.If we could lure the enemy outside of the castle/city and have the peasantry revolt then, it would be another issue, that could turn a battle to our advantage even in a 1-100 battle.>>35639031>Granted convincing them to hand it over to us, a christian is a whole different caseAllies can be more useful than directly holding the land itself.

"I will give you Ascelon," you said, the name of the fortress city popping into your mind. The Egyptian port that had seen many a raider loosed upon Jerusalem, the port from which your own hostage had sallied forth from. "I will give you peace.""With what army?" she asked."With whatever army is bold enough to follow me," you said, "Be it knights or soldiers or peasants with sticks. A legion of Old Rome or a gang of dock rats. I'll take that city for you.""When?" she asked, breath catching a little, propping her chin on the back of her hand."In two years or less it will be yours," you said.Her chest swelled and breath caught. "Why I almost believe you," she said, her legs pressed together as she slipped off the bed. She came to stand before you, considered you along the shoulders. She had a slight flush to her face. She had her sister's dimples."If you can gather the support," she said, "And muster an attack," she picked some lint from your shoulder, smoothed the sleeve, "I may consider..."Ioveta hit you from behind, grabbed you 'round the waist. "You can do it," she said, "I know you can!"You can, maybe, you think. But the sight of Ioveta's dimpled grin, face so alive and hopeful. Yes, you could do it."You should rest," Melisende said, "Gather your strength for the trial." And she unlooped her littlest sister from around your waist. "Come along, Ioveta, we must have a talk of our own."But before she could pry you apart Ioveta managed a kiss upon your chin. "I believe in you," she said, as Melisende pulled her from the room. Leaving you alone with your squire, a roused feeling in your heart. As you watched the women leave arm in arm, the sway of Queen's Melisende's hips as she closed the door, that was not the only thing 'roused'."Damn," you laughed, "How the hell am I going to do this?"-

>>35639173Or just burn the food supplies and then watch them retreat in shame while we pick them off. No need to alienate our own Muslim soldiers, which I presume we will need.
>>35639224its not a matter of Alienating them its a matter of making Hypocrites out of an enemy that would claim Righteousness.
>>35639173Anon, do not make this about religion. The moment that happens we will lose our muslim friends
>>35639198We should remember that Lordship stillr eports to Count Hugh. It's a massive promotion and boon, but we still need to be realistic.
>>35639165Good luck HF

>>35639271Anon it was the crusades its always going to be about religion>>35639293>salting & raping land you want to ruleno anon no
We are going to need armies of thousands soldiers, that means we need to organize lieutenants, sergeants, ect.

>>35639325along with noble supporters, financial advisers/banking contacts we have a long list of shit to do.
>>35639312figure of speech, ofc we need to be tolerant as fuck and be borderline heretics. Have boatload of saracen vassals and let them rule the muslim for us in exchange of passage to some parts of jerusalem.
>>35639325Didnt HF post something that basically indicated that it was literally impossible to raise thousands of troops in that region and era?Maybe hundreds is more realistic
>>35639370We need allies. Maybe Venize can help us with a fleet in return for exclusive trading rights from the city ?
we need scrolls SCROLLS OF ROMAN MILITARY ORGANISATION!
>>35639370Yeah. We're not realistically going to be able to pull off a siege against a hardened position. We'll need some naval expertise, to harass shipping heading into and out of the port, and we'll need a mobile enough group of outriders to cause havoc in the countryside around Ascalon.In the end, we're looking at whittling them to pieces rather than crushing them decisively. Unless we don't have to do it singlehandedly. Then we could form an alliance of the Queen's Men and do something a bit more muscular.
>>35639400>Trusting Venetiansit's like you want to be Byzantium
We are assured to win if we gain somewhere near 2000 Knights (Mounted elites) and 6000 infantry, even moreso if we manage to gain someone with high-tier INT.In the first stages of our campaign, I'd suggest attempting to gain as many troops as possible, allowing us time to train them into actual troops. From that point, with a mildly established snowball of power, the army could act relatively independent from us under a council we can create, while we ourselves search out allies for the final stages.We only have two years on this, we cannot afford to fuck it up.
>>35639325>thousandsYou'll be lucky to get a few hundred.The only good news is that the region is steppe and fertile land all the way down to Ascalon
>>35639431But the Geonese is already in the queens hand and doesnt need to do shit. Who else are we going to ask ?The Romans ?Well we are going to need greek engineers for siege weapons
>>35639370The King of Jerusalem can raise 10K troops from his just lands, not counting any mercs he could hire,and foreign supporters he has up his sleeve.
Geez guys, let's not turn this into Total War. It'll totally fuck up the pace of the game.
>>35639402Roman basic training took 6 months.
>>35639490I doubt HF has any intention to turn it into total war either anon, I am under no doubts we're going to get through most of this on the backs of others. Two years is not enough time for us to establish any sort of powerbase on our own, outside of barely armed peasants, scraping maybe 2k.
>>35639490This is worrying. I really hope HF can balance the quest so we din't go super micromanagement route.
>>35639508and they conquered half the world with it>year 1 prep time & training>year 2 ASCALON GET
>>35639537More likeYear 1: Recruiting, training, alliances.Year 1.5: Pre-attacks, making sure their allies won't interrupt a siege, making sure we attack a proper time when the garrison is low, or exploiting circumstances to gain a favorable situation (Hostage, random, etc.), gathering the necessary resourcesYear 1.7: Organizing the start of the major offensive, coordinating with the other forces to make sure we act in union.Year 2: Start the attack.
You had a little trouble sleeping that night, plagued by lascivious dreams of blonde crowned women with flashing dark eyes. You tossed and turned but you did get rest, the soft bed a better respite than the hard cell floor with its straw and thin pallet. When you awoke it was to Hugo waiting with a grin. He had you fixed with a sword at your hip, the first time you'd held a weapon in what felt like an age. You had a day left until your trial, and for now you had secured something like freedom, though you were restricted to the grounds of the Tower of David.You saw little of Ioveta, and when you asked Hugo simply said the queen had her in confidence, and would not be drawn to release her.You paced the palace grounds, keen to just have the whole business done with, mind filled with thoughts of Ascelon and the trial. Your co-conpirators were in evidence. Count Pons and his son Raymond were speaking amiably with Prince Elias. You caught Raymond's wink for Hugo as you passed. Count Hugh kept with Lord Gerard and Sir Joyce, gripping the Templar by the shoulder, old companions parted for a time."Such a shame what happened to Baldwin, with no son to fill his seat," Hugh said, "I'll be hard pressed to find a man worthy to replace him.""Aye m'lord," Joyce replied, but he had a funny glare for you and your squire.When Hugh say you he smiled and offered a hand."Wilhelm, good to see again my friend," he said, taking it up and giving it a pump, "How have you been treated?"You forced a smile. It could have been worse. Lord Gerard offers you a friendly nod. Count Hugh wears a very pleased grin on his face.> make some small conversation of no importance> talk about the trial> talk about Ascelon

>>35639598I just realized we could free slaves during the pre-attack and turn them into Spies/soldiers, they wouldn't lack for the taste of saracen blood.
>>35639718That's an idea, not necessarily a good one, but AN idea.They're likely to betray us if they think death is the only option otherwise. However, we could use the slaves as a decoy at the start by "freeing" them at an opportune time.
>>35639599>Talk about the trial
>>35639801yeah we could also pull a ''IM Wilhelm'' moment with a bunch of slaves
>>35639845No, that would be silly. It's likely they'd just slaughter them all in such a case.
>>35639859yes & it would make Wonderful propaganda for us.
"How do you think the trial will go?" you asked.Hugh shrugged. "I am not worried over much. Who speaks against us?" he flicked a finger and you followed its trail. Orlando stood with a straight backed man, the Lord of Caesarea, and Joscelin of Edessa beside him. "The faithless and the fickle," he said.Gerard nodded as well. "With so few opponents against us, we are sure a victory in the court."Hugh took you by the shoulder. "I must thank you for your help in all this," he said, "For keeping with us when you had little cause. And for warning us of the faithless.""It was no problem," you said, "Saving myself beside you."Hugh laughed and slapped a knee. "Better to hang together and have good company at the gallows," he said, "But you have done me a good service, and I'd do you a good service in turn. That is, take you into my service. I heard you have little interest in Ramla, but surely I can tempt you with my sister's hand as well. She's a girl of sixteen, very pretty. And I am childless, my wife an old woman.""That's my mother you speak of," Gerard chided.Hugh nodded. "A fine woman, but she's no children left to give. You could marry my sister, take up the lordship of Ramla, and your son with her could be the next Count of Jaffa. What do you think?" He squeezed tight on your shoulder, smile very wide.It was an extremely generous offer.> a generous offer, but no> I cannot refuse> make some excuse and give no answer

Yo, let's table the strategy discussion until we get some concrete facts from HF and the facts call for it.We are about to go on a trial for our lives here and we are sitting here talking about how we are going to capture a stronghold in two years? Let's make sure we get out of here with our head intact.
>>35640114Those aren't compatible anon
>>35640087I was more thinking a Brother, or a sister. Shit, stop thinking with your dick in situations where it's actually applicable.
>>35640061It's a clusterfuck, anon. Border fortress with a buffer right behind.
>>35638249>"Wine, your highness?"When did "majesty" start getting thrown around?
>>35640162Open the gates by treachery!
>>35639896>Orlando stood with a straight backed man, the Lord of Caesarea, and Joscelin of Edessa beside him. "The faithless and the fickle," he said.I actually wonder if Gerard will call Blaise as a witness to let the whole world know about Orlando's incompetence.
"It is too early to speak on future matters," you said, "The days ahead or not so clear, and I'm not so certain of my fortune to speak.""A consideration to be sure," Hugh said, and draws back his hand, "But after the trial I will want an answer.""You'll have one," you said, though knew it not one that he would like. Hugh had been very generous with you. To turn down so large an offer did not sit well. But your heart and mind were set on another task.He smiled and cupped the side of your face. "I do like you Wilhelm, best of luck and keep a strong heart," he said, before withdrawing his hand and strutting away.You gave a heavy sigh. Perhaps it was the smart thing to take Hugh's offer, but none had accused you of an over abundance of intelligence. And fortune was won by the bold, and that was one thing you had never lacked.Hugo kept only half an eye on you, the rest on glowering Sir Joyce. What had passed between them, to leave them like strange dogs in a baiting pit?You had the day and the trial on the morrow.> nominate someone to speak with (restricted to the palace)> busy your time with some activity (playing your harp, shatranj, practicing your martial artist or some other thing)> just rest, for the morrow requires all attention
>>35640224>> nominate someone to speak with (restricted to the palace)Hugo.....what happened?> busy your time with some activity (playing your harp, shatranj, practicing your martial artist or some other thing)Shatranj with Hugo
>>35640162Sand. We can do things with Sand. That may be a little hard however....Akin to that battle, it may be best to lure them out, then attack them before they're prepared.Flanking attacks would be useful, which could be performed with the forest, but they'll likely be expecting it. We could attempt a fire attack on the forest when feigning retreat, setting it alight to split their forces and disorient them.That still leaves a siege though, which would be almost impossible without the right backing. Which means we will need agents inside the walls if we're going with the lure. It may be better to try infiltration, but that brings up a whole host of problems even on that stage.Agh, I need to get a grip on what troops we'll be having.
>>35640224>playing your harp
>>35640224> speak to hugo, ask him what has transpired in the days you've been imprisoned.
>>35640224>> nominate someone to speak with (restricted to the palace)Orlando. It's not too late to return to the flock, wayward sheep
>>35640224>> nominate someone to speak with (restricted to the palace)Prince Elias, we need to mend this relation before it comes to blades.

>>35640266without the Orchards they only have the sea to sustain them & if thats blockaded....well it only a matter of time and if their garrison is weakened well thats even less time.
>>35640290What's there to mend? They both want to bone the same waifu. We'd have better luck with Blaise of all people.
>>35640290>>35640224I'll support that, not sure what to say though

>>35640224>> nominate someone to speak with (restricted to the palace)Hugo
>>35640318Then we'll have to say that we aren't intent on taking her, it was impulsive and reckless of us to try (as we are), and that we haven't disrupted the royal relations too much.
>>35640350>>35640338>>35640271Didn't we already do that with Hugo? Not to mention with Raymond too
>>35640266>SandFound the Mahdi, anon?>Akin to that battlesure, if you can muster 10K+ and strain their logistical network beforehand.>siege, agentsreminder there's another city just behind that one, and Ascalon is a border military fortress

>>35640354Yeah no anon, he is just gonna laughing in our face and mock us
>>35640354Get the fuck outta here anon
>>35640354Fuck that and fuck you, Prince Elias
>>35640312They're obviously going to have things in stock, prepared for a siege. Which would be long enough for their reinforcements to arrive.
>>35640354Elias pls get your try-hard cuckolding ass out of here
>>35640126Seems like there's little to do about the trial before it starts now. And I don't agree with the Ascalon idea; I'd rather we take Hugh's deal and not isolate one of our only political allies/friends, even if it costs us our waifu.
>>35640401>>35640410>>35640421>>35640438>>35640483We're already disliked by Fulk, Elias' doesn't hold much respect with his father, but that doesn't mean that the former's opinion won't be changed by the latter.Lying isn't beneath us, especially to those who are our enemies. As it is, the Queen has a guarantee for two years until Iovetta is married, in that time we have to make as many friends as possible. Even if that means we lie, cheat and gamble our way to victory.
>>35640474Then we tell Hugh to wait, that we have a dream we must attempt to fulfill in the next two years which is more important than our lives.If we fail and live, then we will whole heartedly devote ourselves to Hugh. If we succeed, then we'll deal with what happens at that time.
>>35640474Yeah, nahGo big or go home
>>35640497Fuck off anon. I wasn't even a huge fan of Iovetta's (she's warming on me though - blowjobs do that). You don't roll over for cunts like Elias
>>35640474I think we have little to no chance of taking Ascalon, but I'm still voting for that option because fuck giving up.
>>35640497get your cowardly ass somewhere else elias
I think we should actually go with Hugh's idea. We can always come back for Iovetta later. Like after we kill her first husband.Go big or go home is going to get us killed.
You decide to take some air in the garden, and bring with you your shatranj set. It had been some time since your last game. You set it on a table and take a seat, offering the other to Hugo."You must have some stories to tell, little brother," you said as you assembled the pieces."Some," he said, and coughed. A girl had walked past, a pretty little thing of around twelve or thirteen years. She went up to Sir Joyce and gave him a kiss on the cheek and a flower. Hugo's attention returned to the pieces, while you raise a brow."How are our friends?" you asked."Well," the boy was monosyllabic today."Come on, talk to me Hugo, I've been cooped up so long," you leaned over the table, "Speak freely with me." Your eyes dart to the girl and you make a suggestive motion. Hugo blushes but nods, and you laugh. "Good job," you squeeze his shoulder, "Good job. She's a pretty little thing too."Hugo grins through his blush.You could use a woman. You wanted Ioveta, but two years was a long time. You wanted Chihirizahd, her generous hips and pleasant hands. Well, you mostly just wanted relief. You'd never gone this long without a woman before.You put that from your mind and eye the table.> nominate a stat, roll 1d100 best of three

If he gets wind of our plan for Ascalon and the Princess' hand, he's going to be attempting to sabotage us the entire way through.Not to mention, what if he convinces Fulk to do the same? We could end up in a situation where all of that work, if we even manage it, would be wasted. We need friends, and if at least not that, we need people who are not trying to kill us.>>35640601Cowardly? I'm proposing we deal with an enemy, just not slicing out his throat directly.

>>35640536>>35640538>>35640568The sheer insanity at the possibility of succeeding makes me want it too. We need to tell Hugh our idea though, he might just appreciate how balls out crazy it is and help us.

>>35640780>>35640804>>35640625Elias "Higher Charisma than Wilhelm" is likely the husbando in that case.
I vote we do take Hugh up on his offer, it's the smartest thing, with our political ambitions we might make something of ourselves.Iovetta might be lost to us, but we'll be laying the foundation for a stronger Jerusalem, plus we might still take Ascalon. We could rally the Queen's men and Hugo could work on King Fulk.That way all of Jerusalem is united in war against a common enemy, cease this constant infighting and secure our borders against the Fatimid bastards to the west and the Seljuk's to the east.
>>35640802That's the point Anon. Iovetta is guaranteed another two years of no marriage. In that time, we should distance ourselves from her as much as possible to avoid trouble with Fulk and Elias, to attempt to mend what we've already broken.>>35640808There is a time for both. Right now, standing and fighting will get us nothing, we need to unite people, not cause more infighting.
>>35640828No hes not, forgot how HF said cheating is impossible for Iovetta now? Keep your ntr fetish out of this quest faggot
>>35640827> Good idea, compromise is for dickless faggot like youThat'll look good on our epitaph.
>>35640858actually he is I asked him over twitter but he's like just barely higher than us
>>35640836Iovetta or nothingWe can compromise other things but not her
>>35640836The majority is set on our path already. Marrying Hugh's sister is an impossibility at this point.
>>35640836>>35640848Agreeing with this course of action.
>>35640836>Iovetta might be lost to usOkay, so I'll vote against you then.
You set the board and consider your opponent. Had Hugo ever played this game before? You instructed him on the rules, and took him through some example plays. As you move your pieces you note his hesitation to sacrifice pawns. He didn't know much by way of strategy. You consider this a valuable lesson.You take your time, and instead of ending it quickly, take all his pieces one by one by one.Until only his king is left."Damn," Hugo clicked his fingers, demanding another game. It went about as well.Some folks had come to watch you. A young knight templar and a tanned man with a cane, as well as an ancient soldier of the hospitallers."This pup is good," the one on the cane said."Wasting time on a heathen game," the old man muttered."The heathens have much to teach," the limping man saidWhen the next set was won, you looked up at them and they gave you considerate nods."I'm Roger," the man on a can said, "And this is the grand masters of the Knights Templar and Hospitaller respectively."Roger of Sicily, of course. You did not know he was here. He had a fatherly air about him, a very warm smile."I hear you keep the company of heathens from time to time," he said, "What do you think, have they much to teach us?"

>>35640975Nearly all of them are misplaced, ignorant of the times, and will likely insult them.
Wilhelm already promised to deliver Ascelon in two years or less. Reengage on the promise and lose all credibility with the Queen and all her sisters. Basically you expose yourselves as the scoundrels they suspect you of being. Marry Hugo's sister and we can't get Iovetta since you can't really divorce his sister. Plus again lose credibility with Queen and her sisters, and then piss off Hugo if you want to divorce her later on. Honestly, our path is basically set in stone now. If we try to reverse directions, it's going to be much worse.

>>35641132It's the way it's phrased, not the message behind it.
y'know what we should do? complete twelve labours like Hercules
"Of course," you said, because of course they did, "There is much to learn from anyone who is willing to teach. And from your enemies even more so. The only way to beat a man is to know him. And it's the only way to rule him as well."Roger tapped his cane. "Well said," he said, "And very true. Myself I rule a population of Moor and Christian alike. And have made Sicily a crown jewel of the Mediterranean as a result. I fought the Moor and beat him, and now I rule him. And they are an obedient people should you know their ways.""You are half a Muslim Roger," Archamboud of the Hospitallers said, though it was with some affection, "Come back to Christ!"Roger just gave a playful sneer. "I trust the Moor above the Greek, though they are supposedly Christian, and have been less vexed by Egypt than by the petty republics of Italy.""So you would make common cause with a Muslim?" du Poy asked.Roger nodded. "If I had to. As the kings of Jerusalem have done so in the past. But do not mistake me, the Moslem has no greater foe than I, as my conquests have shown it. But in peace when they are cowed, why not extend some olive branch and learn from them, as the Romans did from their captured subjects?""I would say you are a fool," Du Poy said, "But only make myself a hypocrite. Truly, my personal physician is a Muslim.""Exactly!" Roger said, and then he turned back to you. "I think you an interesting man Sir Wilhelm, and we are well met. Please, take the time to visit Sicily if you please, and see what I have built. It may surprise you.""I may, one day," you said, and Roger grinned as he hobbled away.> the day is endng, visit one more companion in the palace> just retire for the night

Lord Gerard you spy in conversation with the straight backed man who had kept Orlando company, the Lord of Caesarea. As you approach Gerard waves to you."Wilhelm, meet my twin brother Walter," he said, patting the man on the arm. They were nothing at all alike. Gerard was, to put it bluntly, an ugly man. Walter was taller, strong limbed and square jawed. Perhaps they shared a hint of the brow and cast of the eye, but otherwise not much resemblance for siblings, least of all twins."Well met," but he did not speak with much good nature."It is good to see you again Lord Gerard," you said, and he gave his strange cold smile."You did some service to me, the start of the year. Rooted out some bandits. You've proven yourself a useful man to many," he said with a dip of his head."The trial is tomorrow," you said."My brother is a fool to make cause with Count Hugh," Walter said, "Not least because he dishonours our mother. He fucks the queen and all the court knows it.""He does no such thing," Gerard replied with some quick fire."We shall see," Walter said, and took himself from your company.Gerard grumbled. "Stubborn oaf, what matters where Hugh sticks his prick?" then he looked back to you, his good humour lost, "What exactly do you want Koblenz?"> Sigfrod the Dane> Help in a future endeavor> nothing my lord, forgive me

>>35641567>Well shit, HF, why didn'tcha post that in the first place?I thought it was obvious, but then this was the first reply: >>35641481

>>35641472> Help in a future endeavorNo intention of stopping to fight Egyptians on the roads, to keep proving our worth
>>35641576Sorry, just as a landless knight, accused of being a traitor and kidnapping Iovetta, I doubt he'd be quite so easy to suddenly pledge a huge amount of ships to our cause, simply on our word.Especially on the night before the trial.
>>35641576Woah there, then hold the fuck up.>Help in a future endeavor
>>35641603sorry, I thought it was mine.>>35641533this one was mine.

>>35641576How about you hold a re-vote? Since everyone suddenly seems to be revoting because of this.Also, clarify >>35641543 as well
>>35641573Gathering lieutenants is stupid?The guy was leading a sizable force of bandits, he has just as much leadership experience as we have.
>>35641640He's imprisoned, and already in a position to serve us due to our debt.We don't need to be talking about him right at this moment, especially when we have wolves eager to eat us already.
>>35641576Almost nothing is in quests
Is no one else worried at all by the King & Prince's rising levels of hate for Wilhelm? Which will likely only increase after the trial?
>Gerard denies us no matter what we choose>Picking the King would have just soured things before the trial>Going to sleep would have resulted in us accidentally wetting our pants for the first time in ten years
>>35641687Worst case scenario: we'll have to be mindful of catching a fever on the road.
>>35641472Future endeavorSigford will be on our service at the siege if we ask for gerards navy
>>35641687I voted Gerard because I thought it was counterproductive to go see Fulk the night before a fucking treason trial. Get exonerated first before we try to cozy things up with the King. Prince Shit will hate us no matter what. I just wanted to go to bed early.
>>35641700>>Picking the King would have just soured things before the trialI doubt it. We don't have 91 Charisma for nothing.Not to mention, considering King Fulk will be the one gaining Ascelon, I think he would very much argee with it.
>>35641704the only fever will be catching is Yazidi fever anon
"I thought we might talk about the future a little," you said, "And a task that might be beneficial to both of us.""Oh?" Gerard's owlish cast rose, "Well, as a fellow of a certain time and place, I'm at least obliged to listen." You took to some place private, and spoke a little. Gerard nodded, but near laughed at the task. "Your mind is so close to ours, it was right to take you in," he said, "We've all dreamed of taking that city. That you mean to do it in two years? That is the trick."He considered you, and then considered the darkening sky. "I've a son who needs blooding. By the time two years draws, he would be seventeen. If he could earn his spurs, truly earn them, this would be such an endeavor to do it.""I think you will find, among the men of Jaffa and Sidon at least, good cause," he said, "The only one of us who may think different is Tripoli, for he fears the Turk most. I cannot speak for my brother and those in the king's faction."Hmm. So it seems you could count on Hugh and Gerard to support your action against the Muslim fortress. That was something at least. Two years was a long time, perhaps time enough to rally others to your cause.You bid Lord Gerard a good evening and retire to bed. Tomorrow would be the trial, come at last.(cont.)
>>35641725>because I thought it was counterproductive to go see Fulk the night before a fucking treason trial.And you didn't think that when Hugo professed in front of everyone after the duel he was Wilhelm's brother?
>>35641747So that is pretty much Sidon and Jaffa in our hands
>>35641749There's difference between being the brother of a traitor and the actual traitor. Hugo had already done two services to the King and had fought under him when he had a chance to stab him. That earned some trust and goodwill. The fact that he was much younger probably played a part as well.The situation with Wilhelm is much different. Fulk is on the edge, we know that he's a bit paranoid from the Princesses and Adelhide. He's probably suspicious of Baldwin's death from "illness". It's just not a good comparison.
>>35641830Which basically means we don't really need the Lordship for manpower since the Lord of Ramla is directly under Hugh anyway.
You awoke late to the urgent hand of your squire. A palace servant had lain out your clothes, and Hugo and she dressed you quickly."You slept long," he said, "And the trial is about to begin!" You hadn't time for even a small fruit, so hurried were you out the door.The trial would be held in a seating chamber, for all the lords and lordlings that had assembled. Your party was seated separate to the king, who took up the largest chair, not quite a throne. You were seated beside Raymond of Tripoli, who grinned at you, offered you a date. You plucked it from his palm and swallowed. It did little to ease your roaring belly."We are assembled to judge a charge of conspiracy against the king," an old man said. Pagan of Oultrejordan, the king's former butler. "In essence, treason, as well as a lesser charge of abduction of a royal princess. Those who stand accused sit yonder." You all stood so as to be seen, and a mutter broke out among the assembled lords. You spied Orlando seated with Prince Elias and Walter of Caesarea.Hugh just grinned at the affair, tapping his sword against his chair leg. He even whistled briefly, so small was his concern. It made Fulk glower, and troubled you some."As witness we have Orlando, formerly of Sidon," the old man said, "And a written testimony of the Late Lord Baldwin, God rest his soul and Jesus keep him, placing names and intentions to this band of conspirators.""Who shall speak for your party?" Lord Pagan asked, "What do you say to these accusations?"> stay seated> stand and speak (roll 1d100, best of three)

>>35641991Fulk is technically on our side.
>>35641915SPEAK LIKE WILHELM!!
>>35642010Shhh Anon, dont ruin the moment
"Assembled nobles, Princess Iovetta sucked my dick recently, and I think the Queen wants to join in. Someone bring me my harp, and I'll show you all why."
>>35642089When did Wilhelm turn into Rance?

>>35642114Wilhelm can't be Rance, everyone WANTS the dick.

>>35642089I died, my sides
>>35642089I love you.
Before any other could rise, you took the floor."This charge," you said, stepping out from among your fellows, "Is horse shit."Fulk glowers."There is no evidence save the scrawled note only claimed to be from Lord Baldwin, and the testimony of a jealous incompetent stripped of his lands," your eyes swept the hall, "I know my accusser well, we have ridden together for months. For a time I called him brother, but always his eye had been on Sidon. Stealing it from his cousin and making it his own. He would concoct any plan to try and win it. And sell out any man to achieve it."You saw Orlando's face fall as you pointed him out. "I name him a false-friend and oath-breaker, liar without shame. The lowest dog I have ever met." You saw him recoil, and the other lords recoil from around him. His face was pale and eye pricked with tears.Then you round on your fellows. "'Tis true on one measure we met. I stand witness to it. We met to discuss the security of the roads. Thrice I was attacked travelling across this realm, losing a good friend along the way. A true friend. No doubt many others seated here can share that story. We met and made common cause, as the knights of old did. To increase our eyes upon the road, to shelter pilgrims and gentle Christianfolk. Never was the king mentioned but in passing.If that is all to make a conspiracy, I saw judge the Poor Brothers of St John guilty before you cast stones at lords simply looking to uphold their obligation and duty."A nod came from du Poy, the Grandmaster of that Order.(cont.)
>>35642199>His face was pale and eye pricked with tears.Poor Orlando.You stupid little shit. This could have been avoided.
>>35642199>Fulk glowers.Oh goddamn it.Can't we have done this tactfully?
"I would only say, that if he considers discussing the safety of his people a conspiracy, what kind of king is King Fulk?" you said, "What kind of man leaps upon good subjects, well-liked men like Hugh of Jaffa, based on the words of liars?"You looked over the king, who glowered at you."What kind of king?" you asked, "Locks up the man who had escorted his sister-in-law safely through Saracen hordes, protected her body and spirit from those less high minded?"The mutters were growing, heads were nodding."What kind of king," you asked, "What kind of king holds such distrust in his heart for his queen, that he would suggest her hand was behind this elaborate farce? Is she not the true born daughter of Baldwin? Where you not there when she was dubbed and named his true born heir?""What kind of king takes into his household dishonoured dogs like Orlando of Sidon? What kind of king takes your land and gives it to foreign born men, tramples on your sovereign rights? What kind of king?"(cont.)
>>35642199>His face was pale and eye pricked with tears.Suck shit Traitor
>>35642199>"This charge," you said, stepping out from among your fellows, "Is horse shit."A++ Opening Statement, don't even have to read the rest.
"No kind of king!" you did not see who said it."No kind of king!" the call was carried forth, William of Bures the old constable stood up, shaking his fist, "He is right. Baldwin loved Hugh, and he and Melisende are like brother and sister, Hugh was Baldwin's son of spirit if not flesh. I knew them well as children, and knew their father too. King Fulk is no kind of king!""King Fulk is no kind of king!""No King!" Hugh said, "The Queen!""The Queen! The Queen!" young lordlings roared, "Count Hugh and Queen Melisende!"It looked on the verge of riot. The king's Frenchmen drew around him, the Prince and Lord Walter, hands to their swords."You've damned us all," Fulk said to you, "Damned us all to the Saracen."But he could not stop the carried tied. "Not Guilty!" they all agreed, and even the old butler-turned-lord agreed. "Not Guilty. Damn King Fulk!"You felt like electricity, you felt like magic. You felt like fucking Cicero.And you gave the king an evil grin as your fellows crowded around you, cheering your name and grabbing at you. No, you grinned at -Fulk-, for his time as king was done.-End part 16Wilhelm +2 cha, +1 lead, +2 int> should have spell checked first, double damn it)
Orlando you shit, I warned youThis is the last chance if you want to restore you honor
Awwww shiiiiit.Bet we just SOAKED the queen's drawers
>>35642248>You felt like electricity, you felt like magic. You felt like fucking Cicero.>mfw
Wilhelm confirmed for grifith?
Hell yeah, who needs an armed rebellion to topple a King where words in front of his lords does just has much.
>>35642286I'm pretty intent on Wilhelm banging all the royal sisters before this is through.
>>35642248I'm mighty happy and all, but I hope this doesn't bite us in the ass, as it's likely to.Oh well, delicious 93 CHA.
>>35642295Ironic considering HF's model for Wilhelm is apparently a younger Jame Purefoy.
>>35642314We can share with Hugo.So, now that the trial is done and over with, what say we about growing that beard?
Double thread HF?
>>35642354>End part 16Read the fucking words.
>>35642354Maybe. I need to eat and hear about my mum's cancer first.
>>35642347>younger James PurefoyJesus. No wonder we are so fucking sexy.>>35642354>>35642363Fuck, I have class in the morning......oh well. Deus Vault!
>>35642349I would love to grow a beard now.
>>35642248Can you give us more information about the trial now? What would have happened if we murdered Orlando? Did Chiri save us all by ratting out Baldwin? Was visiting Fulk the night before a terrible idea? Would we have been found guilty if we didn't shave? Inquiring minds demand answers!Great thread
>>35642376Oh shit, take your time then man.
>>35642376Can I ask how close to riot this really is?I have a very worried feeling about this.
Day 1 on our quest to give the queen Ascalon.We gave her all of Jerusalem
>>35642369>Read the fucking words.Hur durr, we have had double sessions before. The first was "ended" then the second began.>>35642376Well fuck. Start praying everyone.
>>35642376do that HF Godspeed & best wishes
>>35642376Welp, good luck. Real life comes first.
>>35642248The die is cast. Deus Vult!
>>35642376fuuuuuuuuuck.>>35641173>Can Wilhelm accidentally kill Cancer? Find out next week on Crusader Quest!Oh god, I said something really insensitive just then. I'm so sorry HF, it was supposed to be a reference to the labor in which Herakles kills the Hydra!
>>35642388> What would have happened if we murdered Orlando? A midnight visit to Wilhelm's cell with a sharp knife.> Did Chiri save us all by ratting out Baldwin?Yes.> Was visiting Fulk the night before a terrible idea?It wouldn't have been a great one, but you might have gleaned some information. He wouldn't have grown to like you much, no matter what you did.
>>35642437Hugo and Chiri being MVPs again But what about the beard?
>Fame: You are a knight allied to Queen Melisende, and your name is well known. Your skills as an orator are reckoned on par with Cicero of old.MOTHERFUCKING YEAH!
>>35642437Even if we do roll 100s, it depends on the person and how well we get along with them.
>>35642398We should so say this to her.
>>35642437are we on par with or better than Elaise in terms of CHA?
>>35642457Ooh, playing as Chirashizashi might be fun, thought we would all have to be prepared to sex our way into obtaining some crucial info. Also, the girl can hunt with a falcon. That's awesome.
>>35642437I'm really worried about the political implications of what's happened.Should I be this worried? I feel like we've just fucked things up so terribly.
>>35642485Now, you've overtaken him, but just be aware, his charisma is flat while you have item boosts. Without the items he beats you still.
>>35642398Jerusalem today, Ascalon's next
>>35642498Launch a coup Shinji!
>>35642502How is he so good? It's crazy.
>>35642498Dude we single handedly became Queenmaker when we were actually on trial for treason, we'll be fucking fine.>>35642502MWHAHAHAHAHHA
>>35642502I think it'd be really cool if Hugo got pissed at Wilhelm for being so rude to Fulk.
>>35642506Careful now, that's some Fascisti words you're slinging about now.
I just realised we didnt even use the corpse or our prisoner yet!
>>35642495It would be fun as hell to play a historical quest where you play a powerless girl who has to seduce, intrigue, and fuck her way to the top.
>>35642545Now it's a bonus!
>>35642502>Lord Baldwin of Ramla (neutral)>King Fulk (disliked)>Prince Elias (hatred)Fulk doesn't hate us yet?
>>35642522He's Dread Pirate Roberts, anon. You should expect high charisma from him.
>>35642550Its quite a ways from the usual Waifuing I'll admit.
>>35642199>You saw Orlando's face fall as you pointed him out. "I name him a false-friend and oath-breaker, liar without shame. The lowest dog I have ever met." You saw him recoil, and the other lords recoil from around him. His face was pale and eye pricked with tears.Ha ha, Orlando the Landless
>>35642574The win condition might be getting your son to become the King/Emperor and securing your place as Queen Dowager.
>>35642550/tg/ will never submit to a quest that involves an MC getting fucked by dudes.
>>35642602Everyone needs to play them some Corruption of Champions if you ask me.
>>35642602Someone ran a quest like that on anonkun, was fun before it got dropped.
Ascalon how do we take it? could we sneak a boat in under the guise of a Blockade runner?
So I guess Genoa is coming to supply men or build a navy.Sidon and Jaffa can be convinced to take one spring to raid Ascalon or Gaza.The hanging threads would be the eastern muslims, and the political factions among the Fatimids. We need to leverage at least one of those to diminish potential loses.
>>35642634I think the situation may have changed a little since then, so we're going to have to see.
>>35642641Don't forget, we may have some Normans backing us up. Those guys are fucking champs.
>>35642634Build a huge stage and start playing some quality music. Become the first rock star and convince them to open the gates so they can get your signature. Then massacre your fans.
>>35642648She asked for a city and we gave her a kingdom
>>35642659true however most of them are likely still in Fulks camp out of gratitude.
Hey, in battle can the brotags get a thing that's sort of like charisma, but it's an average of his WAR and CHA, called Dread?
>>35642664that......that would be an awsome way to rustle jimmies and show how much we ''don't'' care about the enemy
>>35642664Macross quest? Macross quest
>>35642659Haven't all the Normans we met been real shitty to us? Same for Englishmen. Trust the Germans and the Irish, I say.
>>35642715Nah King Roger is fine.
Mehmed ibn Omar, cousin to Caliph Al-Hafiz of Egypt. Currently our prisoner, but also completely useless to us at the moment.I think the best idea right now would be to simply release him, free, with the corpse of Shams ibn Shams. It should allow us to smooth over some relations
>>35642710Don't you mean Robotech Quest?
>>35642730You're planning to go to war with Egypt.
>>35642730I think we should present them to the queen and let her decied
>>35642715Tancred, one of Hugh's men is a Norman I think, and pretty chill.
>>35642715Normans =! the French.Its the frenchmen who have been cunts - not surprising.
>>35642730But Fuck Egypt. Aren't there multiple Muslim factions with Egypt being the shittiest of them all?
>>35642745That doesn't mean we can't set out some smooth relations regarding prisoners with them.
Is Queen Melisende definitively in control of Jerusalem?
>>35642745In geopolitical terms, that's called the "Tsundere"
>>35642723He's fucking Italian
>>35642757They are the most powerful. The Caliphate.And yes, they are dangerous fuckers.
>>35642248Wilhelm confirmed for Chessmaster.
>>35642748We already did, as Hugo.
>>35642757We border two other Turk kingdoms, one being Zengi. Cant remember the others name
>>35642771>By 999, Norman adventurers had arrived in southern Italy. By 1016, they were involved in the complex local politics where Lombards were fighting against the Byzantine Empire. These mercenaries fought the enemies of the Italian city-states, but in the following century they gradually became the rulers of the major polities south of Rome.Roger I ruled the County of Sicily at the time of the birth of his youngest son, Roger, at Mileto, CalabriaApparently not. News to me too.
>>35642771King Roger is a Norman. The Normans conquered Sicily from the Moors.
>>35642771>ItalianNo. Italian is barely even a thing, and refers to the douchebags killing each other and counting schekles north of Rome.He is a Norman. Vikings that the French got tired of being raped by, so they gave them the northern coast. They went on to conquer England, Sicily, and fuck shit up all over the place.
>>35642771No he fucking isnt. Read about the norman conquest Sicily
>>35642774actually Seljuk is Stronkest.>>35642789>>35642797>>35642802I stand corrected
Hope this wont turn Hugo too sad. He had finally found a father figure
>>35642745Ah, then we should send him back to Egypt with a message. And by message, I mean bomb.
>>35642808The Seljuk are busy looking northward though, aren't they? I think we are stuck dealing with the Fatamids right now to the south, and smaller groups to the north/east (like Damascus)
>>35642774Not at this point. This is the period where they were in steep decline, and the Crusaders spent more time fighting the Seljuqs (and losing) than fighting the Egyptians (who they nearly always defeated on the field).Now the Egyptian Sultanate, which doesn't exist yet, that's a different story.There are currently three caliphates running, the strongest would be the one that controls half of Spain and most of North Africa.
>>35642836So uh is Orlando going to kill himself? Because goddamn
>>35642836Whelp, am I thinking Ayyubid were the dangerous ones then?
>>35642836How much did the 96 cause?We've got a lot of split opinions on it.
>>35642844Oh how i pity him. All we asked of him was to trust us and he failed and betrayed us
>>35642847>AyyubidYes, that was a dynasty and not a caliphate and the Egyptian Sultanate I'm referring too. Saladin founded it.
>>35642844I know. I actually felt bad for the little shit.
>>35642836Thanks for the thread, could I ask for you to announce the thread an hour or two in advance instead?
>>35642836Hey, you know what would come in handy for taking Ascalon?
>>35642857>>35642863I honestly think it would have been kinder to just shank him than have him go through that kind of public embarrassment.But of course, Wilhelm would have gotten shanked too so I guess this works just fine
>>35642880A flock of blue penises? Yes, it might just work
>>35642836>>35642862Could you include the ages of the nobles in the character sheet too?
Huh, our Hodierna relationship went from disliked to liked in one blow.Yeah, that would do it.>Prince Baldwin (neutral)This will not stand.
>>35642995Who is Prince Baldwin?
>>35643035Hugo's best friend forever. Queen Melisende's son
>>35643035The kid Wilhelm & Hugo are going to groom to be the best damn king Jerusalem ever had.
Oh wow, reading up on the actual Count Hugh now and we just caused some massive divergences with the actual history.I like it.
>>35642995Want hard mode?>Patriach(sic) William (disliked)Wilhelm has muslim friends, talks his way into things, and convinced his niece to go secular.
>>35643096>In Jerusalem as well, Fulk was resented by the second generation of Jerusalem Christians who had grown up there since the First Crusade. These "natives" focused on Melisende's cousin, the popular Hugh II of Le Puiset, count of Jaffa, who was devotedly loyal to the Queen. Fulk saw Hugh as a rival, and it did not help matters when Hugh's own stepson accused him of disloyalty. In 1134, in order to expose Hugh, Fulk accused him of infidelity with Melisende. Hugh rebelled in protest. Hugh secured himself to Jaffa, and allied himself with the Muslims of Ascalon. He was able to defeat the army set against him by Fulk, but this situation could not hold. The Patriarch interceded in the conflict, perhaps at the behest of Melisende. Fulk agreed to peace and Hugh was exiled from the kingdom for three years, a lenient sentence.
>>35642881It would be nice if it were possible to go back to square one with the guy. He betrayed us, we tore what he had of his reputation to shreds but we're both still alive and he's still in service to the crown. I can even understand some of his reasoning, and were this "Crusader Quest: Orlando edition" where he was suddenly faced with "Flip on the conspiracy, save your life, reclaim your lands and hopefully the lives of your friends" or "Stay loyal but you'll all probably die, no one saw this coming and the chances of anyone rescuing you or pleading your case is abysmal" I could see many anons voting for the route Orlando took. Sadly a rift like this is hard for people to leave in the past. Grudges and regrets stick with you for a long time even if you can rationalize it. It'd be great if they could forgive each other, go to battle together to take the promised city, each gaining renown and credibility and re-knitting their friendship while both work together to strengthen Jerusalem. But things rarely work out that well. It would be nice if they could though.
>>35643096Hugh rebelled & allied with the Ascalon garrison, was beaten to shit by some Templar after the Patriarch made a peace between him & jerusalem.
>>35643111It would be nice, but I think basically impossible at this stage.
>>35643111On the plus side, we don't need to be nice to Sir Froggy for Orlando's sake.
>>35643111Trips confirms.>>35643133I don't know, doesn't pity have a place? Let this be a life lesson?
>>35643150We should invite him and his lovely wife to the capital.Also we should really send a thank you letter to Lady Lucca
>>35643154we could always give him a small holding somewhere out of the way.
>>35643150Are you kidding me? now is the perfect time to be nice to Sir Froggy and take him with us on a road trip.
>>35643167yes Fever seems to be the fashion of the day....
>>35643166Nah, we don't have to give him anything. Just let him earn it. Kick his ass, but let him stand up after taking his lumps and rejoin the brotherhood.Teach him that this isn't how you handle this shit.
>>35643166It feels like a pity gift and I think Orlando, if he had any sort of pride left, would reject that. Not really our problem though. I hope he joins the church or something and devotes his life to something good.
>>35643167>>35643183As handsome as we are, we're not going to take a harem.
>>35643183"Dang, Fulk really did a bad job with these roads, my freinds keep dying!"
>>35643111Orlando needs to find something to do. Probably join an order or something.>>35643158>Iovetta has heard about JehanneDude, powder keg.>AscalonQuestion number one is: How do we avoid the Seljuks pushing further in while trying to weaken Egypt?
>>35643202We are totally banging the royal sisters each at least once though.
>>35643202We're not going to have vaginal with Jehanne anymore, but we must still look after our bastard and ensure that their mother and them have comfy lives as a show of gratitude.
On the note of Orlando, I believe we should spare him from any execution which may come to him, but tell him that this is the last time we will save him from a grave he himself has dug. And it will be his responsibility to make sure that he doesn't fall back in.
>>35643133It's pretty improbable yeah. If given the option to try to walk down that route I'd vote for it, but I wouldn't be at all surprised or upset if I was the only one. I just feel for the guy since I can empathize with trying to make the best out of that kind of no win situation and it blowing up on you. If I were in Wilhelm's position I doubt I'd treat him that much differently though. It'd be pretty Saint like to forgive and make amends with someone who betrayed you at such a critical time as Orlando did.
>>35643217Nah, let's not be an Elias. Besides, they all love Raymond
>>35643202>Implying I was Implying that>Implying I don't want to see our bastard raised we;;
>>35643217Disagreed. Maybe if Hugo gets more attached to one, then he can have a go, otherwise, certainly not.>>35643223I agree, that is a good idea.
>>35643212>Orlando joins the templars>Blaise sempai keeps bullying Orlando and giving him wedgies>Being Orlando is suffering
>>35643230Are you kidding? An execution would be merciful at this point for Landless.
>>35643212>>35643217Turns out Ioveta is a grade A stealth yandere and that's why the Queen wanted her to join the church. Bad End
>>35643326Why do you think she wanted to get into our pants so much? And has been so touchy-feely?
Y'know, I think we owe Hugo a little something for all he did in this Holiest Hellhole. Next thread, I say we gift him with our bad-ass sword! Could knights do that with their squires?
>>35643423Sure, but wasn't the sword a gift? May be a bit insulting
n-new quest or is Op too busy IRL?
>>35643423buy him a new one instead
>>35643438Ssshh, he's at a hospital right now. We should wait warmly.>captcha: shoemaker nectogOH SHIT, we gotta make some sandals and buy a ring. Thanks, captcha!
>>35643442> So, little brother, you can either have a new sword, or a princess ride. Which would you prefer?
>>35643438I hope there is another, with an ending as badass as this one I don't think I can wait another week.
>>35643456In a threesome with W, H, and I, sodomy would be frowned upon, but how would the frottage required for DP be looked upon? Especially given the incestual nature of this activity. Or maybe they could try spitroasting.
you know what would be awesome? People referring to Wilhelm as Caesar
>>35643423Celebrate our freedom with Sabeen and her crew, wingman for Hugo. I think that would be a good reward.
>>35643491Probably spitroasting, yeah. We already know Yvette has a taste for the oral part. Of course, we could always have Wilhelm letting Hugo feel what it means to be a real strong man by railing him in the ass, while 'Judith' teases Hugo's shota cock and sucks him off
>>35643423Can't give away a gift.
>>35643525Stop tempting me with things TG will never go for! Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go, uh, do something real quick...
>>35643558Hugo would have grown his hair out and Wilhelm will be dragging it back; Hugo will feel his brother's rough beard in the crook of his neck and shoulder...
>>35643571and uh I guess Iovetta will be sucking some cock or whatever I dunno
Some times I forget that this is a /tg/ quest.Thank you for reminding me.
>>35643423We never played the harp so he could take Sabeen for a dance>"But after the trial I will want an answer."I guess the answer is we have a mission for the Queen
>>35643581Oh, I have some ideas for what she could be doing.
>>35643652>Hugo commits Double Sodomy>Welf gives him a cheerful tumbs up from Sodomite Heaven
Double thread? Double thread!
>>35643608Hey man how did things go at the hospital?
>>35643676I picture Sodomite Heaven as a big wheel made of dudes pistoning in and out of each other with clockwork synchronicity. There's another wheel made of women using tongues. These two wheels are part of the chariot of the Sodomy God who goes looking for more wayward souls to fulfill their desires and get bigger wheels.
>>35643696Good but complicated news. Still has cancer, but not as deep as they thought.Might run in a bit.
>>35643736Y'know what, this sounds like an awesome religion. Let's get all our friends and loved ones in on this!
>>35643736Gee, you should work on Kingdom Death with those ideas. Make the wheels cherubs and done.Gotta sleep anyway. If thread happens, get to our prisoner, corpse and Chi. Fight no one, the nobles probably need time to reassemble a government.
>>35643739Hope all goes well then.Will be here if you run it.
I think we can take Ascalon in a year
Officially three threads from 404
