For at least one more night.Christmas has come and gone with joyous celebration in the halls of Ramla. Often spilling out into the streets of the town and drawing the common folk into the celebration.You are Wilhelm, Lord of Ramla.And your time has been spent alternating between plotting with Melisende, and bedding her. You found her an active bed partner, riding you to pleasured exhaustion. More than her body you appreciated her mind. It was like a steel trap. You coaxed from her more promises of aid when the invasion of Ascalon should arrive, often either a game of shatranj or in the euphoria of pillow talk.She did not solely occupy your attention. A letter had come for you from your betrothed Ioveta. You felt some guilt for bedding her sister when you considered her note upon your bedside table. You'd yet to open it. The guilt did not last when Melisende would walk in clinging shift to your side. You felt an indulgent beast, when you were with her, in the best way. Without her, in the worst.Your usual bed companion kept the chambers you claimed for yourself. Chihirizahd had a lonely Christmas, only the company of the Arab physicians, who would entertain her with stories. Old Ibrahim would lend her books to read, which you would often find her pouring over with a hungered intensity. If she begrudge your dalliance with the Queen she made no sign of it.
Snow had come. Not heavy but enough to add some hint of home to the surrounding country. Your sister tried to instruct Sabeen in the proper method of a snowball fight, eventually drawing a list of women to ambush the menfolk. She delighted her ambushes of Hugo most of all. He seemed to take it in good spirit, and return as he received, often with the help of other boys and young men. It was fast being called the Battle of Ramla, so fierce did the powder fly. Your bastard brother was judged the victor after the fact, much to your sister's annoyance.If any noticed that you and the queen kept intimate company they did not talk of it to your face. Officially you were conferring on the state of the realm, and educating Melisende in Imperial politics and German custom. This was not entirely wrong. Certainly, Melisende bearing a second child was for the good of the realm.Nor were you the only one sneaking to royal chambers. A chance meeting in the hall had seen Solomon exiting Hodierna's chambers, cheeks flushed. You could keep one another's confidence in all things.It was when New Years Eve came Melisende she informed you she would be leaving on the morrow."Do not weep," she teased as she drank a cup of water, dressed in only her white shift upon the bed.You grinned, running a hand up that shift to draw a hot drawn breath from the woman."Mayhap you will weep, knowing what you cannot find in Jerusalem," you replied."Worst it will be when I must bed my husband, to keep the charade," she said, holding your hand in place, "My eyes have been opened. It is not easy to go back to that. Like flying a kestrel after having an eagle on the wrist."You closed your eyes and growled. The tease.She did not remain to satisfy your grumbling. She dressed and departed in the earliest hours, leaving you alone. With Ioveta's letter.> read it> cast it into the fire
>>40639377> read itOh god Imminent tears
>>40639377>> read itAnd we should probably also hurry writing a reply to give Hod
>>40639377> read it
>>40639377>read ittime for Lewd?
>>40639434Most likely gonna be something sugar sweet to really twist the knife.Also. Kek Solomon
>>40639377> read itMan, We should spend more time with Solobro
>>40639377> read itHold your breath people.
>>40639454Top kek percent mate!
>>40639447>twist the knife.but its not adultery if we're not married anon ;.; I must admit I'm surprised that he keeps matching us boast for boast! Hugo should fug Maggie more
>>40639473Not our fault her sister is so Queenly!The flesh is weak.
>>40639487we must PURGE IT then
>>40639500I was more thinking about indulging it. Makes the bad thoughts go away.
Did anyone archive the previous thread? Should archive this one too just to be safe.
>>40639524Aye it was archived.
>>40639375I went to sleep and the thread was going. I woke up and the thread is going. It is a good day.
>just woke upYou're doing self-murder, HF
>>40639447I somehow still really want him to get back together with Adelheid
>>40639566HF IS LOVE HF IS LIFE!
>>40639581Why ? Solomon isnt that kind of guy, heck Wilhelm is not really that kind of guy. Also Seems like Solomon has already impregnanted a few women in the town.
>>40639599It seems we will have a good army in the future
>>40639599Just means we will have a superior fighting force in 16 years.
You took up the letter. It was signed with your name in careful, Church tutored hand. The seal was the seal of Jerusalem. You broke the wax with your thumb and unfolded it.She wrote with firm hand, and no corrections needed.'My Wilhelm,Long have these nights been since last we saw one another. The days are years without you. When we found one another I was a different girl, living a different life, content with different things. A novice on her way to sisterhood and eternal chastity. Holding only the love of Christ in me. A meek girl. You opened my heart to another love, a mortal love that is none the less past eternal. You took me from the path of god and made of me a sinner. Perhaps you have set me on the path of damnation. It is a path I gladly walk if you are by my side. My nights are filled with anguished thoughts of you. My flesh becomes weak, my constitution feverish, naught can expel this fever save the thought of you.If you should fail in your quest, I do not care. If you should fall from grace, I do not care. I care only that you survive. I care only that you return to me whole and happy. Be it as victor or vanquished.I would be a peasant wife for you. Wear canvas and string. I would be your whore.But most all I would be yours.I love you Wilhelm. I am yours in life, and the life beyond life. I am yours in sin. I am yours in grace and disgrace. I wait for you.Forever, always,Your Ioveta' You closed your eyes and placed the letter upon your bare chest, on your heart.A knock came upon your door."M'lord?" Rosalie's voice.> send her away> call her in
>>40639623>> call her in
>>40639623> call her in
>>40639623> call her in Only if we are decent.
>>40639623> call her inI don't know which room we're in
>>40639623>> send her away
>>40639649Dont be a pussy anon.
>>40639623> call her inWe should make a letter for herBy God, My heart burns for The fall of Aschlon
>>40639653b-but the Feels Wilhelm can't be seen feeling I bet Wilhelm feels super guilty about betraying his 3dpd Waifu right now
>>40639676Maybe feel a bit bad. But every time we took the Queen to bed she promised us more and more support. It was what we needed to do to complete our quest!Take heart Anon Ascalon will be ours and we will marry Iovetta even if it means we have to bed every royal woman from Jerusalem to London!
>>40639696Our Seneschal and possible Princess Hod's lover.
>>40639696Senechal basically a steward of sorts
You open your eyes."Enter," you said.Rosalie slipped in. You hadn't kept much company with the stern faced seneschal, but had no complaints to the manner she ran the household."Arrived this morning," she said, "Riders from Jaffa.""Malik?" You sat up. It would do your heart good to see your friend."Irishmen," she said.That put a crinkle in your brow. What cursed business had the Irish in Ramla?"Shall I deal with them, or...?" she looked over your state of half-dress. The sun had yet to entirely rise.You folded Ioveta's letter.> go and deal with the Irish> have Rosalie deal with them
>>40639709>> go and deal with the IrishFuck they are here for Etain and Maggie. Better go out there and use that silver tongue. But bring the sword just in case.
>>40639709> go and deal with the Irishawww fuck I was wondering when this was going to happen
>>40639709> go and deal with the Irish
>>40639709Fuck Hugo better duel the shit out of them for Maggies sake!
>>40639709>> go and deal with the Irish
>>40639709>go and deal with the IrishHave some ale prepared
>>40639709> go and deal with the IrishThis is the problem with goddamned potatoes.
>>40639709> have Rosalie deal with themQuick have her distract them! They're after me lucky charms!
>We haven't chosen priestI choose Desmond for piety and variety.
You came down in unbuttoned doublet, Damascus sword in hand. Outrage burned in your gut that men would arrive, armed in the night, without informing you.You found them in your courtyard, presented and filed. They looked a ragged crew. More pirates than soldiers.Your own men were being assembled by Tancred and Solomon, filing from the barracks."I present to you Prince Domnall Ua Conchobair, cousin to High King Tairrdelbach of Ireland," a herald stood with scroll unfurled, standing in your courtyard. They had come with men under arms, spears mostly. The one named Domnall stood with sword at hip, long and black hair kept from his head by a simple leather band. He had scars on both cheeks, a strong jaw, and smug look about him. "With him is Prince Oilath, son of King Diarmait Mac Murchada of Lienster." A red haired man, younger and fuller bodied, with a flaring ginger mane of hair and shaggy bead both that made him look much like a great ginger lion. He wore a battleaxe, and was scarred upon the arms.They kept company, but you could sense the two were not friends.Behind you came your knightly retainers. Sir Hector, Sir Etienne, Hermann and Orlando. They were armed but unarmoured.Slipping up beside you was Melisende. She wore little against the chill. Her white shift barely cloaked by a loose silken robe. She stood with you upon the tower steps, looking down upon the Irish with wry amusement."Hail William, Lord of Ramlah!" the herald said."What business have you here?" you demanded.The dark one looked you over with gold blue eyes, and hooted some gibberish at the herald to translate. The other, Oilath, just laughed."We're after a pair of stray gels," he said, rubbing his nose, "Word has it they were t'be found here." The dark haired Domnall shot Oilath a jealous look, lost to foreign tongues."It is as Prince Oilath says," the herald added.You glower at the Irish princes.> send them away, damn them> let them retrieve the girls> write-in
>>40639901Indeed Desmond seems to be the best one.
>>40639909>gold bluecold blue eyes
>>40639909>> send them away, damn themYou show up at my door step in the middle of the night armed in the presence of my Queen?! You can return tomorrow at a proper time
>>40639909> write-inWell met, good holiday to you, perhaps you'd like to partake in the last of the feast?
>>40639963The feast is over anon.
>>40639909>> write-inReason & Purpose?
>>40639976They said there were here for two girls. The irish infact.
>>40639966You know how much food is left over after Christmas? I'm sure we have one good breakfast to give.If anyone asks, Black has been supporting our Seneschal (which is pretty much household training), while Red has been teaching people and tending wounded.
>>40640003Still doesnt mean it is very, very rude to show up at this hour of the day armed. Tell them to come later and we will greet them properly
Wait, they are inside? Who the effing hell let them in? Don't we have gates that can close?>>40639909> send them away, damn themThen> write-in"What in Gods name are you babbling on about in this ungodly hour? You have shown up unannounced and come barging into my house with no urgent business of mine but of your own! Come back when you learn the proper way to enter a lords holdings!"make it seem like they committed a grave faux pass and have them return in the morning. Then we talk to both Maggie and Etain on who they are, what they want, and what the girls want. We'll figure something out from there.
>>40639909> write-inA warm but stern welcome to them for barging without informing us.Should we play fool or straight to the point?
>>40640016This pretty much. It will buy us some time to talk with the girls.
>>40640016This goddamn Potato's hope a famine kills them!.....well maybe not all the Potato's
>>40639909>>40640016Can't think of anything and this seems good.
Changing this >>40640022 to >>40640016
Should probably talk with the girls with only Hugo and Chiri. in our Work Chamber.
>>40640016Small oversight on my part, its morning not night.I suppose we can throw in that we have the Queen of Jerusalem with us and its the holidays so they are interrupting a festival.
>>40640016>>40639941Combind these more or less.
These guys seem pretty rough and ready. We should try and ruse them into fighting in our war.
>>40640042Don't you DARE touch my potato salad! (seriously I love that stuff)>>40640044>>40640043>>40640029>>40640027Oh you guise make me blush.
>>40640016Gee, I hope we at least get to roll if we're barely trying to CHA
>>40640062Perhaps say why you should entertain their questions when you have not even broken your fast yet? They darken your threshold with their demands yet come as if thieves before the sun rises? Who are they to visit such disrespect when the Queen herself is in attendance? Come back after noon with respect and I'll hear you then.Something like this? Proly a bit late but eh
>>40640136Regardless. They are being rude and uncultured cunts.
>>40640090Hmm, HF mentioned they may not get along we can play them against one another if we can convince the girls to play along if it gets to that part. But we need to talk to the girls before we do anything...>>40640095You..... don't mean actual potatoes do you?Ugh, I need to pass out for like 30 minutes.>>40640116Want me to try a re-write? We should play to our strengths but I only wanted to buy time.Then we can be Mr.Pleasant.
>>40640155>Want me to try a re-write? We should play to our strengths but I only wanted to buy time.Remember. CHA is not just being nice and silver tongued. It can also be used for when we need to be hard.
In the interest of folks passing out and to save HF some time.Shall we be keeping Desmond or Marian?I vote Desmond.
>>40640193who was who again?
>>40640193I agree. Desmond seems like the one that is easiet to work with
"What damned business is that to me, at this hour, with no forewarning?" you demanded. You felt your men as much as saw them bristle forward. The black one, Domnall, looked about in fearful confusion, hand to his hilt. Oilath had a nervous tick n his eye, but his smile did not slip."Your lordship, we've been sent by fathers to take custody of their gels, and to return them home to be wed," Oilath said, "If we have been rude my apology. Amends shall be made, but these are slippery creatures. Forewarning might've forearmed them.""I don't give a damn," you said, and pointed to your gate with your sword."Make camp outside the walls of my town, and come again in better hours with more respect in your voice. Be thankful it will not be at blade point."Oilath nodded and signaled his men. Domnall tarried with a frown until his herald provided translation. He cast you an offended look, drew himself up, but none the less departed. The Irish troops filling through your gate. You had a mind to whip whoever was on watch for not sounding alarm.When they were gone Melisende put a hand to your arm. "How very kingly you seemed," she said softly before retreating back within.You knew the girls these Irish princes wanted. Maggie and Etain."Fetch them," you snapped at Rosalie, though your anger was not meant for her, "Drag the girl from your bed if you have to, and find Maggie. Bring them to my study. We must talk. Now!"
>>40640193Desmond>>40640197Marian is mundane potato, Desmond is born and raised
>>40640197Desmond looks like a stickler to the rules and must be a nag but he is the one who wishes to extend god's love to all, christian or otherwise.Marian appears to be more laid back but more intolerant of other religions.
You stalked back into the tower, mind filled with ill emotion.In your study you found Chihirizahd, carefully putting away one of your books. She saw you enter and dropped into a bow."Master," she said in meek voice. It gave you a hot flash to your loins, which only irritated you further. Well you liked her body, but now was not the time for it. You lay your sword upon your desk and pulled her to her feet. She seemed a little spooked by your anger. "Are you well master?" she asked, tenderly brushing the bristles growing from your cheeks.You closed your eyes, felt her hand upon you. "No," you said, "No, I am not." Then you forced a smile. "But a little better for your company."And she smiled, kissed you on the chin.Soon Rosalie came with the Irish 'gels'. She left them in your company, but hesitantly as her hand lingered on Etain's shoulder. You growled. You had no time for Sapphic nonsense.You looked at Maggie. "Oilath Mac Murchada," she grasped at her chest, eyes gone wide. You looked to Etain. "Domnall Ua Conchobair." Etain looked to the floor, her body trembling."They're lookin' to take us home," Maggie said, tears building in her eyes.Etain shook her head, muttering in that gaelic tongue. And she strode with purpose towards your window. Chihirizahd grabbed her, adnd the girl struggled to reach her suicide."I'll not go back!" she bawled, "Not to that!"Maggie only looked to you. "Please don't let them take us," she said, "They've every legal right but...claim we are your prisoners, your hostages!"You took a deep breath. Etain collapsed sobbing into Chihirizahd's arms. Maggie stood tall, but her lip gave a slight quiver.> It's the law> I'll not let them take you
>>40640221Ahh I was just ..... Nvm.
>>40640224>Marian is mundane potato, Desmond is born and raisedOther way around.
Question is. If we are going to keep them. How ?
>>40640239>''calm yourselves & elaborate,but be quick about it for I have bought little time''>>40640224>>40640228Desmond then
>>40640239can we Write-in?I just want to know why?
>>40640239>explain Why are they here? I need backstory, details, hard facts!Also strike the fear of god into them so they don't even contemplate lying
>>40640261If it helps you are in a much better position to defy them than you were with the Romans.>>40640269Yes you can write-in
Let's talk about this before we vote.The girls are runaways, right? So the Irish are in the right.They don't want to go back, but do they have the right to decide? We don't want the potatoes hurt, but do we want trabbu?
>>40640269They were promised to someone for marriage. But yeah. Coudl really use some advice on what to do.
>>40640261offer them in return for assistance in taking Ascalon only for them to be ''kidnapped'' by Saracens on the road.in the meantime they should be kept as ''Hostages'' till they fullffill there end of the bargain
>>40640284We could claim that they were here but then left to go on "adventures" and most likely got captured by Saracens ?
>>40640284Neither potato has their V-card, so they're in trouble when they get found out. Whatever political match their daddies want is fucked.On the other hand, they could make new friends.
This is why i said to bring Chiri she might have an idea if the Irish girls tell us their story.
>>40640284It's not like the Irish are going to send an army down here. The Romans definitely would have, but these are potato scrubs.>>40640239"Prisoners you will be then." Actually let them sit in jail for a few days for bringing trouble our way. Not cruelly, but can't let this shit go unpunished.
>>40640239>"They've every legal right butThis is not how you start an argument.>It's the law
>>40640319>It's not like the Irish are going to send an army down here. The Romans definitely would have, but these are potato scrubs.Aye, they are little more than street gangs. Just make sure we are armed and armored when we meet them again
>>40640239"What awaits you there? Why such fear?"Guys, how do we rules lawyer this?Can we duel for the right of possession?Or do we have to resort to saving that they have already wed. That should trump whatever claim these men have.
>>40640292We can't bargain like that, that's insanely disrespectful. By law we have to hand them over.
>>40640239> It's the lawMull over this out loud, but knowingly conside yourself to> I'll not let them take youThen gently "Interrogate" the crap out of them.
>>40640319Yeah, but having servants abducted by potato niggers shames us in front of our royal guests
>>40640292It will be eventually discovered that they are living with us, and then we are denounced as a liar.I think the girls can stay with us as 'hostages' for a bit longer. But after that,, it's either back to Ireland or somewhere else. They won't be living with us again
>>40640348or they get married in this land and then they'll be set.
>>40640336>do everything and a bowl of eggswut>>40640348They could "take vows" and act as secular teachers and stuff
>>40640336This is good>>40640332Play it right and we can settle the for a duelorMake them prisoner and bait them for the scots to join yer wars>>40640360Marriage can be helpful but i sense a bad consequences
>>40640348Slut potato just tried to kill herself. Hand her over and she will die, but do we really care?
>>40640360That's an interesting idea.But to whom?
>>40640333>>40640348>Not wanting to protect the potato's smilesfor shameregardeless its not like they are in any strength to contest us & at the end of it we can simply resolve by trial by combat, by which I mean unleash Hugo & Solomon on them.also HF has confirmed we are in a better place to resist then when Rome came knocking>>40640383I hear Hugo's single......
>>40640383So whats the word on christian polygamy in this land?
>>40640391Bad. I guess Hugo and Jaques ?
>>40640403Or say they're married to God and providing services
>>40640383yeahNot Hugo tho, he is engaged and it will be a bad rumor
>>40640388I hear Hugo's going to Joyce's sister.
>>40640336Sorry I think I messed up using the word "conside" I wanted a word that conveys reluctantly come to terms or accept what you already know you're going to do but hate the known consequences.
>>40640239What law do we have to follow? We're not Irish, and we're not in Ireland.>I'll not let them take you
For now lets see what the potential possibilities could be, if they can be baited or not or if this has to be settled by a duel or other means>>40640411I hear that MIGHT happen
"Maggie, you have your sense. Tell me what has you so fearful of your legal guardians. Hugo told me you were kept at St Anne's to await your marriage."Maggie looked to Etain, who shivered in Chihirizahd's arms, and bit her lip nervously."If it were just me I'd have no major problem with it. Oilath is a mule, but he's a good mule. If he's come for me it means the Norwegian lecher has finally agreed to my uncle's terms. I like it here, love it even, but I've a duty to my lord. Etain though..."Maggie frowned. "If it is Prince Domnall who has come it means her father is dead, along with him their clan. She's the last of her line and Domnall...Domnall means to have her. Either wife or concubine. Or even just to end her on the road and extinguish her clan for good. And as he is kin to the High King it makes it legal. But it doesn't make it right."You consider your sword upon the desk. "No, no it does not.""Leinster and Connacht are not friends, but me and Etain, we're friends. I'll not let Domnall take her, on my life," she said it firmly. You knew she meant it. To have a friend like her...well you had some, and knew how lucky Etain was. Maggie bowed her head. "Will you do the same m'lord?" she asked> the law is the law> I won't let them take her
>>40640388>>40640403>marrying our brother to disgusting potatoIt's like you've never played Crusader Kings, anon.Jacques, though, that's an idea.
We could always get our new priests in to argue for their purity
>>40640411Best political match, honestly.
>>40640376Yes, we do care, we're in a position to prevent what happened back in thread 24.
>>40640429Maggie can go back. Etain 'died' recently.
>>40640429> I won't let them take either of you.
>>40640429>> I won't let them take her"Not like poor Komnena, no."
>>40640383What if we tell them they slept with moslems?Might take a rep hit but I doubt they'd want them then, and the girls seem desperate enough to do almost anything to avoid being sent back. We can also use this as reasoning to hold them and "punish" them.Anyone want to comment on this?
>>40640429You've been on a convent, say you took vows and came to help prepare things for the Queen.
>>40640429>I won't let them take her
>>40640455>What if we tell them they slept with moslems?Very, very bad idea. They might just kill them for that.
>>40640455tbh we should just let Etain jump. There's nothing good awaiting her
>>40640429> I won't let them take herMaggie is welcome to stay too if she wishes but Etain is not to be harmed, if nothing else Solomon owes her that much
Suggestion for marriage candidates: Every single bachelor knight in your company (Sir Etienne, Sir Hector, Sir Hermann, Sir Orlando) and other unwed men (Solomon, Hugo, Jacques, Franz Judd)If that's the road you want to take.
>>40640470I can't see any of the knights approving of the match. So Orlando it is!
>>40640455The punishment for sleeping with a Muslim is having your nose chopped off.Your balls as well if you are a bloke.
>>40640470Etain is quite taken with Solomon maybe ask if he would help us out and marry her ?Maggie could either go to Etienne or Hugo
>>40640429>> the law is the law
>>40640429> I won't let them take her I hate not having a good choice here. One is the right thing to do the other potentially gets a few troops for Ascalon. Which is always good. Just have them leading the more dangerous operations during the siege.
>>40640480Backing this>>40640470As well as Jacques
>>40640480She's a noble girl, so it isn't beneath their station.
>>40640489But is it our law?>>40640429> I won't let them take herIrish law be damned I won't let them take you
>>40640492Why ?>>40640495If we marry them to our friends it means the Irish's girls land will go to them
>>40640488>>Maggie could either go to Etienne or HugoAre you fucking serious? You want to marry our brother to some Irish peasant?Etienne deserves better than that too.As for Solomon, good luck getting him to agree to stick with a woman.
>>40640465But shes in our land as our "prisoner" and subject to our arbitrary ruling, judgment, and punishment.We can have her put to a fate "worse" than death.
>>40640470Lets bring in Jacques
>>40640508>Implying he has to stick to her>Implying they can't just get it annulled
>>40640508>Are you fucking serious? You want to marry our brother to some Irish peasant?She is a noble girl of Leister anon. They are not peasents.
>>40640470>>40640508I don't think Solomon would give a single fuck, except at nights
>>40640519Different anon but i've of a mind to have Hugo wed elaine. Orlando and Jacques appears to be two good candidates for the two.
So mock weddings to Solomon and who?
>>40640521Then he would give oh so many fucks. Also if he married slut-potato, they could have an open marriage easily.
>>40640536Solomon and Jaceques ?
>>40640536Solomon - EtainOrlando - Maggie?Or we just go lolno and tell them to bring their champions
>>40640543If we are set on them marrying I'd agree with this.
Do not marry Hugo to anybody. DO NOT MARRY HUGO TO ANYBODY.I shouldn't have to say this, but you clowns wanted Wilhelm to politically marry Hughs sister a couple of threads ago, even though we're lined up for a princess.
>>40640486So we can't make our own punishments of supposedly equal weight for them?
>>40640543But I want Hugo to have more fun times with Maggie!>>40640554Prehaps for Maggie but Marriage would be safer for Etaine
>>40640562>but you clowns wanted Wilhelm to politically marry Hughs sister a couple of threads agowot
>>40640570Hugo will get no fun with Maggie if she gets shipped off to Ireland.
Actually, shouldn't we bring in the most agreed on marriage candidates in?Talk to them, see if they're willing to wed to help save these girls?
>>40640429Consult/ask for advice with the Queen maybe she has some ideas or tricks up her sleeve. She's likely dealt or known of similar situations like these,
>>40640589Ofcourse. Thought that was a given. We are just discussing candiates. Lets bring them in and see.
>>40640562Anon that was going to be sex that could POTENTIALLY have lead to a shanghai wedding>>40640586So lets have him/Solobro fight them
>>40640470Can we talk with our men first and get more ideas?
>>40640570>Prehaps for Maggie but Marriage would be safer for EtaineEtain to Solomon, then we just bluff on Maggie
>>40640655Dont think we can bluff in the long run. Might be better to marry her off aswell. Maybe Orlando. He is a noble himself a Grenier. I know some of you dont like him but it would be a bad match for either of them
>>40640655pretty much, Solomon may not be happy but we can just say he has to play house
Whats the stand on marriage annulment here in this time period? Is it a Bad Thing?
Orlando with Maggie. He needs a lively girl like her to keep his shit together, and let's face it, he's not getting laid any other way.
>>40640689For one, they can't have one reliable witness to betrothal here
>>40640689We kinda need someone important to do it. And it can be a bit of a bitch to go through.
>>40640671I dunno anon it's feels like we're rewarding him when he's done nothing of real note after saving us.point is I don't trust him again since he hasn't done shit since he saved our life>>40640689absolutely Haram save for the most dire of circumstances or the most powerful
>>40640713We did promise him land. Instead of getting his own back. It just so happen to be in Ireland. I think we might be able to trust him with that
>>40640713>marrying used goods>somehow a rewardYeah, okay
>>40640730still doesn't sit right>>40640732still a step up from a disgraced nobleman with no lands or titles
>>40640749It's him or a creepy old Swedecuck, what's she going to choose?
>>40640749Maybe, maybe not. Might have to make a small leap of faith. At worst nothing will happen at best he might be able to support us.
>>40640732You crack me up, Anon. Its like giving stick and carrot at the same time
Maggie is fine to be give but Etain is priority
>>40640769After the weddings we will make sure to meet the Irish again fully armed and armored and make sure we have the surrounded once they return.
>>40640758Neither and Solobro/Hugo can pick related?>>40640766I suppose but fucking make him prove himself through whatever means he can be it admin, war or espionageMaggie can fuck Hugo though
"What if you were married?" you asked, "Wed already and you would be under the authority of your husbands.""Husbands, and who is worth marrying here?" Maggie asked with a wry smile, "Aside from yourself m'lord."You went to Etain, placed a hand upon the fey girl's shoulder."Who would you wed?" you asked."Rosie," she said so foolishly, but then she found a sensible answer, "Sir Solomon...if he found me pleasing."You knew he found her fetching enough. You drew Etain from Chihirizahd's arms, gathered her up and sat in your chair. The girl still sobbed into her hands, you pulled her tight and rocked her gently."Chihirizahd, please get Solomon, Father Desmond, Sir Etiene and Orlando. If you see Melisende, send her as well."Chihirizahd nodded and set away. You saw stern pride on her face. Pride in you.You looked to Maggie. "Is this alright with you?" you asked.Maggie grinned. "No man ever asked me what I thought about bein' married. I suppose it trumps a Norseman old enough to make me as much nursemaid as wife."They were assembled in pieces. Solomon came armoured, ready to fight. Etain threw herself into his arms. Etienne and Orlando arrived together looking grim. Last was Desmond, the Queen and Chihirizahd."Solomon," you said, "That girl you hold has a death sentence upon her head. That gibbering fool this morning is her executioner."Solomon's eyes widened, lips curled back. "I'll kill him," he said."Others will come behind him," you said, raising a hand, "Do you wish to protect the girl you hold?"Solomon looked down on Etain. She was like a fearful mouse within his arms. He looked back at you. "Yes," he said.
>>40640797Actually, we probably outnumber the men there. Whats to stop us from just refusing to give them back?
>>40640813Ofcourse, but they might try something foolish and it pays to be prepared.
>>40640804Solomon you have no Idea what you've walked into......
You nodded. "Father Desmond, I'm sorry to call on you in such a matter, but we have a wedding to perform." You nodded to the couple.Desmond drew back in shock. "But who stands for the girl's family, who gives permission to this union?" he asked."I do," Maggie said, "I'm her kin, she's none other living." Bold, brave Maggie. She grinned at her friend. "Ye've netted a big one, an' a good one too."Desmond looked from you to the Queen. Melisende shrugged. "Let it be so if they wish it," she said."Solomon?" you asked.He considered the pale, dark haired lass. She looked up at him with tender, desperate eyes. He nodded. "Yes," the word was hoarse in his throat.You slam your hand down. "Done! The rest is paper work, father?" you looked to the priest. He stuttered a union upon the pair, and it was sealed with a desperate hard kiss, Etain pulling herself up by his neck 'til her legs swung out under her. It ran deep. Solomon grabbed her by the backside, lips and tongues thrashing."That is more than enough," Melisende chided with amusement in her voice. They're lips broke apart with a wetness. Etain blushed at her husband. Solomon still frowned, a little uncertain.You look to Maggie, and motioned to her two options. She looked them over uncertain. Orlando still seemed half-asleep and not quite aware of what was happening. Etienne looked about with irritation.> suggest Orlando> suggest Etienne> have Maggie choose
>>40640813It's bad manners to make a scene, or to start a blood feud with Paddy fucks. They never forget.
>>40640828> have Maggie choose
>>40640828>>> suggest OrlandoKek
>>40640828>suggest OrlandoPerhaps he can kindle the fires of love and roast the potato?
>>40640828Open the floor to Orlando and Etienne. See who would be willing to marry.
>>40640828> have Maggie chooseMention we have men willing to fight for her if need be c'mon I want a hugo end
Think she might go for Orland as he will be the easiet one to handle.
>>40640828>> suggest OrlandoCome on Orlando. You could do far worse.
>>40640852Think you just have to face that is not going to happen. Gotta make a new headcanon anon.
>>40640856Etienne doesn't seem very happy about any of this. Maybe we should talk to him first. But not Orlando, who gives a fuck?
>>40640828> have Maggie choose>Suggest orlandoCan orlando duel the guy but i am more afraid to force etienne to this
>>40640878Fuck you I want Hugo to protect that smile
>>40640881Oilath would murder Orlando in a straight fight.
>>40640881There will be no duel anon. They can either leave or we will butcher them to the last man with everything we got. They do not get to come to our Castle like this.
>>40640899By God, HF.Thats fucking brutal
>>40640899Hugo it is then!let Hugo become the God of fookin war like he destined to be
You guus are assuming there will be a duel and we wont just massacre them ?
>>40640828> suggest Orlando
>>40640921Are you suggesting Hugo get married simply so he can fight some guy?
>>40640828>> suggest Orlando
>>40640939I never Implied marriage, I simply suggested Hugo duels for her sake
>>40640939Or make him a slave owner protecting his merchendise
>>40640952You just love risking his life for anything
>>40640828What? We already selected the bachelors? I was hoping we'd get a post that give us more official options on where the group consensus was.No Jacques.No Franz Judd.> have Maggie chooseAnd make sure who they choose is ok with it atleast, I don't want to give the girls a choice but the guys none, we'd be like putting things in reverse.So Prince Domnall will kill Etain but not fight for her, while Maggie has Oilath Mac Murchada who will and likely kill Orlando if he is to fight?
>>40640953that works too.......regardless Im against maggie marrying
>>40640966>No Jacques.Not a knight.>No Franz Judd.Also not a knight and a jew.
>>40640828>suggest the Good Mute guy, he seems cool
>>40640963Hey we've done it for less before>>40640966>No Jacques.Peasant>No Franz Judd.Ex-Jew Peasant
>>40640953Its illigal for a christian to own another christian as slave.
> while Maggie has Oilath Mac Murchada who will and likely kill Orlando if he is to fight?If Oilath was forced to fight he'd be a tough bastard. You'd want your best save Solomon to go toe to toe with him. But only if he felt forced to fight.
>>40640996Hugo topped with our best gear?FUCKING LETS DO THIS SHIT! save our knights for better marriages
>>40640985>>40640979Not familiar with the laws in the time period. So basically unless they are of equal or greater status, they can't take the woman as brides?
>>40640932Massacre might work but the scots kings will have revenge>>40640989How bout Muslims owning a slave? Better get Solomon to own her
>>40641011Solomon is Coptic Christian also they are Irish not Scots. And they wont do jack shit to us down here.
>>40641007If Hugo dies, I will shit down your chimney. Fuck off with your retard bullshit, just marry her to Orlando already.
>>40641011I thought Solomon was a Knight Christan of, some variant faith and from Africa?
>>40641010more like a loss of face but pretty much that's it for men & women.>>40641024Nigga Hugo is WAR! quit shitting yourself
>>40641034Why do you want a duel that badly ? We got a small army ready to defend their liege lord and his family ready.
What's wrong with Maggie marrying the mute again?
>>40641033Coptic christian>>40641024the Duel wouldn't have to be to the death, first blood would suffice
>>40641034Dude he's 13. Fighting a grown-ass man who's been fighting his entire life, in all likelihood.
>>40641023>>40641033God damn itMalik is not here and i dont know about Sabeen agreeing this.Then there is that pervert muslim guy
>>40641054Anon. Seriously. You really want to be known as the lord selling a christian noble girl into slavery to a muslim ?You could totally not see how that would backfire ?
>>40641046> the mutewho?>>40641052He's got one one knight kill to his name already if you've forgotten>>40641054Its a shame she could agree to the pretense
>>40640828> suggest Oilath
>>40641074>He's got one one knight kill to his name already if you've forgottenSir Matthew was in a waaay lower league.
>>40641081This. We don't need a double marriage.
>>40641034Would that be a loss for our guys or the Irish, or everyone involved?>>40641054You might have a.....>>40641069 never mind.
>>40641074>who?Oilath, the one that's mute.
>>40641069Right, ill shut up nowPanic in desperate situation is bad
"It's your choice Maggie," you said.She looked over the knights presented. Etienne just stared glumly, while Orlando took a more admiring view. She looked over them, but her eyes were full of disappointment. She wanted something else. Someone else perhaps.Maggie shook her head. "I'm sorry m'lord, I jus' don't wish to be wed," she sighed, "Mayhap holy vows are in order."You looked to Melisende. The queen took a deep breath. "Well I suppose she might be placed under royal protection, until such a time as she can be placed in a convent. A woman has certain rights in Jerusalem."Maggie knelt before her. "Your majesty," she said, "I owe you so much. My life."Melisende beckoned Maggie to stand. "Enough foolishness, stand." Maggie got to her feet. "I would be a hypocrite if I stood by and watched another woman suffer an unwanted marriage."That was settled at least. You drummed your thumbs upon your desk. Now to break the news to the Irishmen.> send for them to come alone> marshal your forces and march out to meet them
>>40641093We dont have a mute. Unless you mean Welf who died around a year ago.
>washing machine on spinning cycle>this discussion
>>40641100>> marshal your forces and march out to meet themNo duels. They either leave or die.
>>40641100Invite them to breakfast
>>40641089>>40641092anyone Involved in the marriage>>40641100> marshal your forces and march out to meet themshow of Force, probably best if we have the men on alert for the next few weeks>>40641123this too
>>40641100> suggest OilathIt's not the worst thing in the world, and Oilath could help us kick out the asshole
>>40641123I can hear The Rain of Castmere in a distance
>>40641100> send for them to come aloneat least we've got food left over
>>40641100>Red Wedding all those slimy potato fuckers at breakfast and dump them in the countryside somewhereDamn those Saracens.
>>40641133Relax, we're not a weasel or a rat king.
You guys think they are just gonna accept this ?>>40641100> marshal your forces and march out to meet themMarshall our forces so they wont do anything stupid.
>>40641142Anon, pls. We can't be an edgelord with the Queen watching
Can't we wait to march when it's day out?
>>40641100> marshal your forces and march out to meet themWe mean business. They need to go, there's nothing for them here.
>>40641154You'd rather start an irish grudge?You tell them you're keeping the girls and let them go home, they'll tell all their kin and their family'll be murdering yours for centuries. Hell, they'll bomb your home when it gets to present day.Trust me, i'm English.
Let's see if we can convince Maggie to marry Oilath, and convince Oilath to help us out, get some adventure. war stories.
>>40641193We challenge them to a drinking competition.The trick is to eat a loaf of bread first.
>>40641196That is waaay too late.
>>40641196I don't think Oilath is the one getting married
>>40641193Counterpoint, we're not the english.
>>40641193Can confirm filthy English pig's statement.Trust me, I'm Irish.
>>40641193>You'd rather start an irish grudge?One would be starting a grudge with the Church. If he's smart, he'll let his "friend" fight and be all the better coming back home.
>>40641100> send for them to come aloneInvite the two men and allow for them to bring one additional man each, have some of our men stand at the doors and by our side. Make sure we are a accommodating host and ensure they get some food or breakfast to eat.Apologies for the rough reception and you where in some delicate Queens matters of state. Then Inform them that during the festivities they found love or something. I do believe we are still have a day of celebration and festivities left.
>>40641230aye we're German and you know what happens when you Firebomb our house? we Blitzkrieg your land, destroy your culture & systematically destroy your entire race
>>40641239Anon. Now is not the time to be nice. THe die has been cast and we need to go out there and face them. We have made our choice and we cannot have it both ways.
>>40641074>>40641104Sorry, I misread "Good Mule."
>>40641249But Anon, the USA got away from Dresden scott-free
>>40641235>filthy English pigBro.
>>40641262>Implying the Reich ain't coming
I think we're going a very roundabout way of this, the simplest solution is to just say that they're unmarriageable from promiscuity.
>>40641252If we are at that point then why not just tell them to fugg off, the girls are under our protection under our banner/house?
>>40641280They would still demand them back and punish them, then marry them.
>>40641280one of them doesn't give half a damn anon and the other is a shit who cant speak fucking latin
>>40641287Which is what we are currently doing by going out there with our men.
>>40641287>our bannerA roaring lion with a mane of fire, fire attacks will be our thing.
>>40641319>Fire attacks>In fucking arid landmaybe for ascalon but the damage anywhere else would be awful
So will Solobro cuck Rosalie for good? He's dicking her waifu, and now he's marrying her too.
>>40641338She will either just have to accept it or work something out.
>>40641336Just need pitch, hay, and some good wind.>>40641338Relax, Solomon isn't one who would necessarily tie his wife down because he doesn't want to be tied down.
>>40641338>>40641346I don't think either will take it too seriously I mean honestly Solobro is gonna Solobro so Etaine & Rosalie can do lewd heretical things too!mutual understanding really
>>40641354>Just need pitch, hay, and some good wind.Anon. The climate and terrain is just not built for that. Ofcourse Greek fire is really good for sieges however.
You stamped your hand."Gather the men, Solomon," you said, "We've unwanted men to see off."The Nubian grinned, hitching his thumb on the scabbard of his shotel. Etain grinned as well, relief and pleasure as she clinged to her lord husband's arm.You sent for Hugo. The boy had slept through much of the excitement. He brought you your armour, and then went to ready your horse. Other servants and groomsmen rushed to do similar biddings. You marched to the courtyard. Melisende and Chihirizahd following you. They watched you mount your horse, and take up spear. You looked to your lovers and gave them an expert flourish. In this moment you felt a credible warlord.Solomon mounted his destrier beside you, and Etain came running, leaped up onto his back like a mad little cat.Tancred brought out your footmen, and your knights and lancers assembled. You saw Sabeen check her helm strap just as she mounted. The queen's men remained out of it, but Sir Raymond rode up."Keen for a spot of amusement," he said, "God forgive me Wilhelm, but Ramla is frightfully dull." He laughed and rode ahead to do a circuit of the town, his cackle belting forth. There was a touch of madness in that man.You nodded to Tancred and he raised his spear. A drum began to beat, and the men began to march. Thirty and three men on foot, armoured in maile, armed with spear and shield, all helmed. They were a frightful sight and made a frightening noise. Shutters slammed shut on Ramlan houses as you passed. The gates of the town were ahead, and encamped were the Irish. You could see you had stirred them like a hornets nest, they rushed to take up arms, re-don armor.You did not wait for them. Your knights and lancers formed, and charged at their party. None struck killing blows, but sent the men scattering. Only Oilath, with axe in hand, and Domnall with sword remained standing. Domnall cursed at his fleeing men, then glared up at you."I warned 'im, I bloody warned 'im," Oilath said.
>>40641354im more worried about damage to the land we want to rule anon, Famines aren't fun
Why don't we give Maggie to the Prince on condition that he fights Domnall?
>>40641299I forgot to include, forgoing the entire marriage charade,
>>40641356Shame, I want Rosalie to be unhappy. Not because she's a bad person, but because she's a lesbian. Although there's little difference between the two.
He lowered his axe and gave a sigh."You wanted the girls," you said. You pointed to Solomon, and Etain who grinned from behind his shoulder. "Well that is her lord husband." Domnall looked about with furious incomprehension."And Maggie?" Oilath asked, "What of my cousin?""Holy vows and royal protection," you said, and levelled your spear point down at him, "I suggest you go to Jerusalem, and lodge a complaint with the Queen."Oilath exploded with laughter, clapping his knee. "Oh good god this is just like her," he ran a hand through his beard, showing crooked teeth in a grin, "Always more trouble than she's worth. Blight of my eyes."His companion was not so good natured. He bellowed at Solomon, waving his sword.Oilath cocked his head in a way much like Maggie would have. "Domnall demands to fight," he said, "For he claims Etain as his property. A proud idiot."You looked over at Solomon, who looked at Domnall as if he were so much scum on a boot.> let Solomon fight for his wife> have someone else (nominate)> have your soldiers butcher the man> there will be no violence today
>>40641386>> let Solomon fight for his wifeAsk him if he wants to fight. If not>> have your soldiers butcher the man
>>40641386> let Solomon fight for his wife But only if he wants to otherwise butcher the bastard
>>40641369>A drum began to beathttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-LS7Vv1MzY
>>40641386Oilath is hilarious. Let's schedule a duel between Solomon and Domnall and share a drink with the red potatoes while we watch.
>>40641386> let Solomon fight for his wifeTime for Solobro to make mashed potatoes
>>40641386> let Solomon fight for his wife
>>40641394Do you really want to turn a disagreement between men into an act of war?If it's only the two of them, there's no cause for real butthurt.
>>40641386>you want your best Men save Solomon to go up against DomnallHf why wouldn't we want Solomon to fight him?HF?!
>>40641426Just letting the option be there. Besides the man is an idiot.
Potatoes don't exist here, they're over in America. Hmm, wouldn't Native Americans be potatoes then? They're certainly more brown than Irishmen.
>>40641386> let Solomon fight for his wifein he says no> have your soldiers butcher the manHes a existential threat to Etain he was to wipe out her bloodline, and basically wants her dead.
"Solomon, this man wants to fight you," you said, pointing to Domnall."Good. I mean to kill him," he replied, swinging down from the saddle. Etain took his seat, and bit her lip with excitement, peering forward eagerly. Solomon's sword came out like a serpent, with a clean snikt.He pointed to Etain. "I will speak slow, so you understand," he said, "That is my wife. Mine." He pointed to Domnall. "You are a corpse. You are just too stupid to know it. Do not worry, I will teach you."Domnall belted back something in that monkey hooting tongue before leaping forward with his sword outstretched, long greying hair billowing out behind him.> roll 1d100, best of three

Domnall leapt, a curse on his lips, blade arcing out.A shift of Solomon's feet. A flash of Solomon's sword. A single strike.Domnall staggered past Solomon. Cursed him in that alien tongue.You were shocked by what you saw. His sword arm came off at the elbow. That was not the shocking thing. A thin red line bloomed across his face. Beneath his eyes, and over the nose. And the top of his head, it slid from the bottom half. Landed in the dirt with a wetness. And Domnall continued to stand a moment. You saw his eyes blink in that half head on the dirt, roll back.That was when the body collapsed. Crumpled into a heap of human meat.Solomon reached down and pulled the top half of the head up by the hair. He'd not cut a single strained. He looked the man in his dead eyes, matching that dead blankness with his own bored expression. And then threw it aside as if Domnall were nothing.As he walked back to his wife he flicked his blade clean and returned it to his scabbard.Etain all but panted upon the saddle she warmed for him.Hell on earth, you had half an erection as well.You looked down to Oilath."I don't suppose you have any objections?" you asked.The man looked dazed. Scratched at his wirey ginger mane. "Fucking none. Christ in heaven, Domnall was figured one of the greatest warrior in Ireland."Solomon rode away with his young wife into a nearby palm grove. No doubt to consummate the marriage. She was already fumbling at his belt. Solomon didn't even blink."Well," you said, "This isn't Ireland."-End threadWil +1 lead, +1 int, +1 war
>>40641712>"Well," you said, "This isn't Ireland."FUCKING TOLD FUCKING HELL I AM SO HARD RIGHT NOW

>>40641712Holy fuc- THANK YOU SO MUCH HF for running
>>40641712>A thin red line bloomed across his face. Beneath his eyes, and over the nose. And the top of his head, it slid from the bottom half. Landed in the dirt with a wetness. And Domnall continued to stand a moment. You saw his eyes blink in that half head on the dirt, roll back.Oh god, Solomon became an Anime character.
I think this deserve a second feast. God in heaven.
>>40641712Thank HFThis unexpected and difficult scenarios always makes me smiledDid we do any mistakes?What happen if we let maggie marry orlando/etienne

>>40641884Admit it. You are happy, you made a second thread now
>>40641882Haha FUCK ME How the fuck can Hugo beat that?>>40641896We TTGL now?
>>40641896>yfw Solomon gets killed by a stray arrow during Ascalon
>>40641907That +1 war you got? That was just from watching Solomon destroy Domnall.
>>40641924Training at 100 times gravity.
Solomon is still most certainly mortal, and can be overwhelmed and killed.He's also just the greatest living swordsman of his generation.
>>40641928>"Ah, I see, I should put my sword up to where I can cut off that bit of the head, yep yep, very informative."
>>40641928holy shit Hugo must learn his ways>>40641940while training with solobro?
>>40641928And that half erection too as a bonus eh?Btw, what happen if orlando married maggie?
>>40641951And right now there is a handful of Ramla girls carrying his DNA in them. Cant wait when 16 years has passed and we can start training them
>>40641928Jaysus. Also murder boner! But jeebus l veiling war from watching Sol kick so much ass! Wait did the other shit himself?
>>40641712Passing out soon, Thanks for running.Was there any way for us to help the girls that we overlooked?Does Maggie still have to take vows or have they cut their losses and gone?What would have happened if we just had our men kill him instead?How is Solomon as a teacher on a 1 on 1 lessons?Will we be able to improve our lands like Orlando Bloom?
>>40641951He can still turn the tide of a battle by going around challenging High WARs to duels, right? That and fire attacks are my main tactics in RoTK games.
>>40641966>Btw, what happen if orlando married maggie?They'd be married. Nothing much would have changed.
>>40641951Fucking capped for proof
>>40641951Don't forget he's a master archer and courteous lover as well.
This thread better get a badass description in the archive
>>40641980>yfw we use Solomon as a Lu bu equivalent during Ascalon & it takes Shirkuh & two other Saracens to even match him
>>40641951Wait how good with the bow is he then? He has said that his skills with the sword are nothing compared to the bow. Lu Bu archery feat topped!
>>40641978>Was there any way for us to help the girls that we overlooked?I'm not sure what you are referring to.> Does Maggie still have to take vows or have they cut their losses and gone?Only if she wants to> What would have happened if we just had our men kill him instead?He would have died. Maybe taking out one or two of your guys with him.> How is Solomon as a teacher on a 1 on 1 lessons?Better than he used to be after drilling your recruits.>>40642008He's actually a better archer than he is a swordsman.
>>40642013Sorry, I'm not good at badass descriptions.
>>40642034>Only if she wants toWell that is going to cheer her up.
>>40642034>better archerWell, looks like he will be shooting Achilles heels
>>40642031Only until he gets serious. Until then he has a bored expression.
>>40642034Could we have cut some kind of deal with Oilath? Possibly giving him Maggie in return for him helping us / turning the other way?
>>40642032>somewhere out there is an Alt./tg/ where people are having vs threads out there about Solomon>there is an alt raging autist shitposting about how Solomon totally didn't animu Domnall
>>40641896>implying you won't have to pick between Hugo, Sabeen and Solomon
>>40642034>He's actually a better archer than he is a swordsmanOp pls nerf
>>40642068Yeah, you could have. You could have cut a deal with both of them, potentially.Captcha has gone insane.
>>40642143It can't Handle the Solobro
>>40642068I say we should still treat Oilath to some breakfast.
>>40642143Hey really thanks for running double today mate. You really are a crazy strayan. I mean that with utmost respect mate. Also how the fuck is a cat soup?
>>40642143What's Solomon's reputation like now?
>>40642143I arrived too late to propose the idea, but I'd have liked to have given Maggie to Oilath, since she was the one willing. While Solomon's prowess is amazing, we've made another enemy in killing a prince.We may, in fact, still be able to do it to prevent hard feelings from turning into conflict. I like Maggie, a lot, but people are going to die over her.
>>40642251It was Etain that caused the fight
>>40642251anon Solomon killed potentially the greatest Irish warrior of current time I don't think Ireland will be itching for a fight anytime soon.
>>40642276Will probably think he is some black demon from the south spawned by a possed goat and a witch.
So i take it the Queen found Adelheid's letter to not be exaggerated HF ?
>>40642276They're Irish. They're not going to back down because they lost a single man. In fact, because he was important, they just might try to fuck us.And it's not just the Irish, Maggie's set to be wed to some dude in Norway. How many northerners do we have to piss off? We've got to compromise at some point, or else we'll lose more.
So how badly did we screw Ireland over by killing off the Prince? Wiki shows someone with his name being born in like 30 years?
>>40642391They will most likely be furious and swear blood vengeance intill they get distracted by a couple of rude frenchmen and end up fucking around in France completly forgetting what they were suppose to do
>>40642391maybe they'll learn that if a woman is in the company of a Koblenz man they best leave well enough alone!
Ireland at this time is a bit of a shithole composed of feuding clans and can't organize beyond the level of an unstable petty kingdom.The days of Brian Boru are long over.
>>40642453In other words they might talk big but wont be able to orginize anything to come down here.
>>40642453well that settles that>Press Solomons claim to Ui neil lands>30 years later Ireland is ruled by Nubians>/pol/ ragesKEK
>>40642453My fears are semi-alleviated.Seriously, we've got to really analyze who's fucking royalty in hiding in our household. Everyone's trying to hide or run. We CANNOT have a repeat of the Komemnos Incident. Nor a tragedy like Welf.
>>40642487Can just imagine the reaction to a Nubian in Ireland at this time period.
Will Hugo ever find out what happened with Matthilde?Will they ever fully resolve their sexual tension?
>>40642512>Ui harra what am I looking at?>I dun no Ui niell but I don't think I like the way h->Solomon rides off with all the Irish women>Births a new age of concubinage in europe
>>40642487Nubians are an improvement to the Irish tbh
Oh yeah HF. Remember to have Wilhelm write a reply to Iovetta.
>>40642579>"Sorry, I fucked your sister. A lot. Love you, Willy."
>>40642599Nah just the standard "been thinking about you, hoping to see you again. Doing everyting in my power to return victorious etc etc."
>>40642599>She tracks down Hugo and rapes him.
>>40642634Maybe something like, "I will move mountains for you, or die trying."
>>40642656Maybe an actual account of the real shit we've been doing for her. Then write some really filthy smut of all the things we want to do to her.
>>40642709I like your style.
>>40642709Can we mention the buttstuff we wanna do?
>>40642709>Maybe an actual account of the real shit we've been doing for herMaybe not reveal too much just give her a general idea. Dont want Fulk to find the letter or something. But the last part. Oh yeah, give her something to hide the letter under her pillow for
>>40642656Pretty much>P.s you will never have to be my whore for you are cherished far to much
>>40642752I thought Cherished was our whore?
>>40642752We already got a whore so that position is taken.
>>40642752Say that in the letter itself and we got a deal.
>>40642769Really dont. it might sound smooth in your head. But it is not.
>>40642749Just say the places we've been traveling for that thing she wanted
>>40642795Yeah, sometimes it's best to let HF handle the lovey-dovey dialogue.
>>40642820More like the thing we wanted. Yeah, askin' around for a treasure... The HOLY GRAIL, yes, we're looking for the Holy Grail!
Hope Chiri didnt feel too lonely.
>>40642898Relax, Queen Maleficent is almost outta here.
Thanks for playing folks.
>>40642924>stupid whore queen stealing mah man.>>40642934It was a pleasure.
>>40642941Nah 'twas just a test drive. Mak sure he could pl azure her.
>>40642969Sorry eating nachos. Make sure he could pleasure her.
>>40642934Thanks for running, hope it was worth it
>>40641262Wait for it.
What a time to be aliveWe just MAY be able to pull off the County of Ascalon if we partner with the Hospitaler and their castles
>>40643563Queen said she had already convinced the holy orders. We might go the whole way Ascalon-Darum-Gaza
>>40643583Hugh is going to be so pissedbif we do
>>40643563We know for certain we got around 3600 troops and 80-100 knights so far. Dont know about Trier or the other nobles/other forces the Queen promised us due to our bedding games. Or just how many troops the Holy Orders are willing to give.
>>40643628Nothing we can really do about that. The race will be on and we can faff around the start line all we want in a attempt to not make him angry or we can make a run for the win.
King Roger is sending ten galleys with troops. Anyone got any idea how many men that can be in that ?
>>40643583Gaza is currently ruins I think. A bunch of earthquakes hit the Levant in the late 11th century and devastated the area. It's way Ramla is such a shit hole.
>>40643635>Or just how many troops the Holy Orders are willing to give.The whole reason they have castles there is to push back the raiders and store supplies. Everyone will go if they see enough siegecraft.>>40643628We would have to return Ramla, at least. And be king of the hill somehow to deserve a city (claim the holy buildings, make some authority surrender, etc)
>>40643718Good. Then it should be easy to take. Rebuild it and fortify it. And Darum should be a piece of cake compared to Ascalon.>>40643727>We would have to return Ramla, at least. And be king of the hill somehow to deserve a city (claim the holy buildings, make some authority surrender, etc) We could gift it to someone loyal to us. But it would technically no longer be ours. Maybe Orlando or Hugo ?
>>40643773Orlando probably, but that's if we don't need his help running Ascalon. Oh yeah, what does he help us with?
>>40643773Well i fucked up that quoting.
>>40643794Stewardship. He has experience with stuff like that. Taking care of the day to day afair outside the keep.
>>40643773>>40643794It is Hugh's to give. Though I don't know if we can just vacate.
>>40643852If we get Ascalon we will just move to it and leave a regent back in Ramla.
Im gonna ask again like i did earlier. Wonder what the hell the Ibelin are up to?
>>40643908Eh, supposedly he would be on Fulk's side, but that got cut without rebellion, so he's either serving Hugh or thereabouts.
>>40643991Poor Orlando Bloom. He will no longer be important since the Koblenz is taking over the position as the second most important family.
>>40643991Hey. Notice how the Queen's standing with us changed a bit>Queen Melisende (loved)Hope she found that it wasnt just pure fantasy on Adelheid's behalf.
>>40644070>Queen Melisende (loved)Great
>>40644117Ow cheer up anon.
>>40644150It's only going to make us have shit on our plate, we don't need to deal with it.
>>40644176What? You think the Queen is gonna send Iovetta away while we are busy to marry a Byzantine Prince and then Fulk suddenly dies of a fever leaving only her left with Wilhelm or something ?
>>40644150I feel his pain, there's little good that can come from this.
>>40644176No shadowruns. Melisende is probably the safest dalliance, since she knows her shit and is pretty much in control.
>>40644256Well the Queen did promise to put more effort into helping us take Ascalon. Besides the Queen is a lot of things but stupid is not one of them. It'll be fine.
>>40644287We had to win her blessed kingdom for her.
>>40644336She already had plans in motion. Wilhelm was just a wildcard that turned out perfect for her.
What's with all the cucking?
Does anyone have that chess drawing of the boy king surrounded by all those MILFy queens?
>>40644914I would like to have this drawing also.
