He has set up a workshop on your grounds, commandeered the local blacksmith and his apprentices, and generally just made his presence known.While you were now training a new squire, son of the town reeve and general lunk head. Called 'Alexius' by you, called 'Shit for Brains' by your man-at-arms Tancred. He was, to put it very kindly, a work-in-progress. Having Alexius has spared your brother from becoming overburdened with duties, giving the lad more time to train - though as often you spied him carousing with his friends Jacques and Maggie.Your marshal Solomon had spent a week busy with his new young wife. Old Ibrahim had declared her with child soon on their return. Solomon was still oft distracted by her, and his usual hard discipline in training the soldiers of your levy had dropped.In a month you were expecting the arrival of your father and the arch-bishop of Trier. Important guests. Rosalie worked hard to keep the estate running smoothly, but with her chief assistant pregnant and consumed by marital bliss her usual steady hand was slipping.
The other members of your household continued as they had. Your sister played at swords in the morning and spent the afternoon alternating between conversation with Chihirizahd and mooning over Sir Hector. Franz was composed only of grumbles and agitation. Made worse by the widowed woman's children occasionally drawing him into games. A nightly gambling session had developed between Sirs Etienne, Hermann and Orlando, and Maggie was speaking as much Arabic as Latin after lessons with Mohmed.All this you oversaw from your court in the White Tower - once a mosque and now your keep in the town of Ramla.> Devote time to Achilles> Continue training your squire Alexius> Continue training your squire Hugo> Direct Solomon back to his duties> Assist Rosalie with preparing for your guests> Relax and do nothing, all will be well
>>40916078Lost my trip.
>>40916069>though as often you spied him carousing with his friends Jacques and Maggie.Maggiexhugo OTP> Direct Solomon back to his duties> Assist Rosalie with preparing for your guestsHONEYMOONS OVER BROTHER BACK TO THE FIGHTAN!
>>40916078I should say, choose two:> Devote time to Achilles> Continue training your squire Alexius> Continue training your squire Hugo> Direct Solomon back to his duties> Assist Rosalie with preparing for your guests> Relax and do nothing, all will be well
>>40916160> Devote time to Achilles> Direct Solomon back to his duties
>>40916160> Direct Solomon back to his duties> Assist Rosalie with preparing for your guestsWe can only do two but i suggest:>tell hugo to train alexiusIts good practice for when he has his spurs
>>40916078>> Devote time to AchillesGet those war machines also Fuck yeah crusader quest!!
>>40916078>>40916160> Continue training your squire AlexiusAt least he needs to ride and be a passable page> Assist Rosalie with preparing for your guestsHave some trust in Achilles, put effort in reception
>>40916160>> Direct Solomon back to his duties> Devote time to Achilles
>>40916160>Devote time to Achilles>Direct Solomon back to his duties
>>40916160> Direct Solomon back to his duties> Assist Rosalie with preparing for your guestsDammit Solobro get back to work you did your duty as husband
>>40916078>Direct Solomon> Assist Rosalie with preparing for your guests
>>40916239I also like this, we need to look at upping Hugo's Leadership
>>40916078Have Chiri assist Rosalie a bit with her work intill she can get a new assistance.> Devote time to Achilles> Direct Solomon back to his duties
Oh yeah. We should probably end Mathilde's sword fighting lessons before father and the bishop arrives.
>>40916344Can we get Mathilde to assist Rosalie, get her some household training?
>>40916358It could be good training for her when she get her own husband castle to look after yes.
>>40916358>>40916358if she has supervision for you know ''reasons''
>>40916370Dont worry. Mathilde doesnt swing that way, but if Rosalie does try to make a move we will ofcourse step in
>>40916370agreed, we should probably do something about that.Also we should get a tutor for French, I think it's really going to come in handy and we seem to forget to do that.
>>40916358That means we can get 4 things done>get solobro back to work>get hugo to train alexius>get sister to work with rosalieAnd one more. Maybe see our engineer.
>>40916390In general get a tutor really. Also a bard.
>>40916385better safe than sorry thoughbesides Wilhelm doesn't know this really>>40916390Mathilde knows french actually
>>40916431True, but I guess I feel we should start integrating learning French into our routine.
>negro mercenaries>open prince wars>kill your assassin
>>40916451Yeah. I am sure Chiri is doing her best but it is limited what her bedtime lessons can teach us.
>>40916160HF, is something like this doable?>>40916401
>>40916401>>40916517I don't think Hugo is the best choice to train Alexius. He can fight good but is fairly spaghetti elsewhere
>>40916539That is what he is training him in. Fighting and learning the ropes of being a squire. The rest we will do when we can
>>40916539Exactly why I think its a good idea, he's training him to be a squire, something he already knows how to do. He, hopefully, will also get some leadership xp so he won't have to keep on being a wriggling noodle
>>40916559> being a wriggling noodleWell. He has begun practicing poetry in private, hanging out with friends so i think we no longer has to fear that.
First you had to get your best warrior back to the task at hand, training your men and preparing for the coming battle for Ascalon.You found him with his wife, in his chambers, in his bed. They both lounged in half-dress. The girl lay in the crook of Solomon's arms, half asleep and face a-glow from lingering pleasure. Solomon himself seemed similarly contented, a wide cat smile upon his face as the sunlight streamed over the pair.You did not think theirs was a union of love, but it was certainly one of pleasure.They did not notice your entrance. They did not notice you pick up the chamber pot by the door.They did notice when you drummed it long and loud upon the stone of the wall.Solomon rolled over his wife, drawing his sword as he touched down upon the floor, curved blade raised before him and eyes rid of sleep. Etain seemed grasped by horror and recoiled into the bed, drawing up bedsheets around her.Once they saw it was you, both sword and sheets dropped. Solomon scowled, depositing his sword back into its scabbard."Don't give me the sour looks," you said, lowering the chamber pot, "It is well past time you were out of bed. We've only a few seasons to prepare, and I'll have all I can get out of Ramla before that time runs out. You need to be out in the field drilling troops and scouring for more men. Not pleasuring your pleasurable wife." You nodded to Etain, to acknowledge her existence.Solomon crossed his arms with a sigh, the grin of a husband replaced with the look of a marshall."I will do what I can," he said. He took his wife by the elbow and drew her up to a kiss. It was a soft thin, a press of lips, but Etain went back to the bed top shivering. Solomon followed you out, lacing up his doublet and drawing on his maile.You looked over your shoulder at him. "I appreciate all you do," you said, "It is not fair that the burden should be on you alone, but I have few else to rely upon."
>>40916591But gaining the confidence to lead is something we should start early so that he can lead effectively later on.
"I could use a helper," Solomon said, "Perhaps a squire of my own. What say you to lending me one of yours?"You paused at that. Certainly whoever you loaned to him would be given quite an education. Solomon made the stones seem soft, and was both warrior and skilled leader of men.> lend him Hugo> lend him Alexius> deny the request
>>40916631>> lend him Hugo
>>40916631> lend him HugoWe can focus on Alexius
>>40916631> lend him Hugo[sword saint Intensifies]
>>40916401Yeah, I'm open to it.
>>40916631>lend him Hugohe's almost outpaced our combat teachings, and Solobro could help him with leadership
>>40916631> deny the requestHe can literally bully anyone in the levy to do stuff for him. Though Alexius maybe he can deal with good mule Alexius.
>>40916680>He can literally bully anyone in the levy to do stuff for him. Though Alexius maybe he can deal with good mule Alexius.Its more that it is good education for the squire and Hugo is my number one concern when it comes to that.
>>40916631> lend him Hugo"We will find a good Squire for you Alexius is unfortunately going to be more trouble than help at this point of his education."
>>40916696Hugo is set up, though. At this moment he only needs some LEAD chess, earn his spurs and marry.
Ey Sol. Why not just give up on being Coptic and convert to Catholicsm
>>40916766Its going to happen anon, at some point.
>>40916766Be responsible, anon. His spaghetti ass needs the most stable environment to git gud. And french girls should raise CHA.
>>40916793>>40916806please he's going to be the Hearthrob of the levant!
>>40916793But to whom?I'm favourable towards that Templar's imouto.
>>40916869Same. But mostly because i dont want to risk having a falling out with them.
>>40916869>>40916881Third. She at least was receptive and Hugo is already in Joyce's graces.After all is said and meme'd, Hugo is still a bastard without spurs, so he's clearly marrying up.
>>40916881But why Joyce isn't a templar of any real note from recollection also he's friends with fucking Blaise remember
I've got a bad feeling about Ascalon, guys. We've just got so many muslim friends. It's gonna be bad. Shit's going to happen. I don't want it.
>>40916924They are co-workers and Joyce is the leader of the Templar's in Jaffa and was put in charge of establishing a house in Sidon. So he is clearly a Templar of some note.
>>40916937Probably gonna find our two friends and their company there.Unless we manage to get word to them if they're leaving Lord Hugh's employ. I do hope they'll come down south to say goodbye before leaving.
>>40916937>We've just got so many muslim friends>Malik>Sabeen>Physicians>????
>>40916937>>40916960RIP Malik & Co, they knew what they signed up for.
>>40916965And Malik and Sabeen are Syrian and doesnt seem to give a crap about Eqyptians so long we dont do anything Chaotic Stupid.
"You can have Hugo, for a season," you said. That seemed to please the big man. "Alexius, god bless him, is lacking in much capability and can't be trusted to do more than fetch and carry."Solomon slapped you on the back and began off to his duties. But you stopped him before he could go far. You had one more order. "These lessons you have been giving Mathilde are over," you said, "It's time she started behaving towards the nature of her sex. If she continues playing with swords she might form mannish habits."It did not please Solomon, but he nodded. "You are right. Time to put such games to bed," he turned and marched out to assume his duties.You found Hugo chatting with Maggie as she brought in bails of laundry. The rosy cheeked Irish lass seemed pleased with his attention, and he helped her with the burden. It was a playful little romance they had, full of slight blushes and stolen kisses.It would not become more than that. As your current heir he didn't have that luxury.You took Hugo by the shoulder while begging Maggie's forgiveness and told the boy he was in Solomon's care now. Hugo took it well. Too well. You think he might be unaware of how hard a master Solomon could be, and only thought back to their time as comrades on the road. He'd come to regret how flippantly he greeted the news, but it would be good for him.Next you called upon your sister, who was at company with Chihirizahd. They were sharing girl's secrets. Nothing of importance. It was good that they were together."I need the two of you to work with Lady Rosalie," you said, "Get this house in order for father and the bishop. We must impress.""And we must be impressive women?" Mathilde asked. You'd noticed she had undergone a growth spurt. She threatened to become tall.You smiled. "In time you will be a most impressive woman. Until then you're an annoying brat. Now get on with you!" and you ruffled her hair, pushed her to the door.
>>40916937Then don't post. It's hardly different from frank fighting frank. The Fatimids are sort of unstable and hateable enough for other muslims to push their shit in.Just bury the dead properly and earn the reputation points
Chihirizahd tarried a little, cast you a smoky eye and little smile, hand trailing across your chest."I shall do my best to behave master," she said, "But please, be at hand if boredom overcomes me." And you knew what she meant by that, and shared her grin.You left the tower to find Master Achilles' worshop.The balding, black bearded man always seemed to have a sweat upon him, and dabbed at it with a cloth as he herded a gang of boys around his workshop. Designs hung from the wall that were beyond you. Diagrams, formula, all manner of nonsense. When he saw you he stopped barking in Greek and assumed a grin."Master Wilhelm," he said with a bow, "Good of you to visit.""How goes it?" you asked.Achilles snorted. "I do what I can with what we have. It's not much. And always difficulty. This and that becomes that and this, you understand. In a city that is one thing, out here it is another. But do not listen to me grumble."You barely understood what he was saying.He produced a sheet. "I could use some direction. We need towers, we need trebuchet. We do not have enough raw material for all. Which do you think?"You would need to see about gathering more material if you wanted more war machines. Perhaps a trade deal can be arranged. You had horses in excess.But for now you had to use what was available.> build trebuchets> build towers> build one of each
>>40916978>You had one more order. "These lessons you have been giving Mathilde are over," you said, "It's time she started behaving towards the nature of her sex. If she continues playing with swords she might form mannish habits."Eh? Why stop it?>>40917003>> build towersWITH FLAMETHROWERSSSS>Get in close, spew death before disembarking.
>>40917003> build trebuchetsAssasulting the walls of Ascalon with towers would be suicide. We should ideally have sappers for that.
>>40917003Wilhelm is literally No Fun Allowed > build one of eachTime to mortgage the damn place for siege equipment
>>40917003> build trebuchetsKnocking down a wall or a gate from range seems to always be better than taking a superior position head-on.
>>40917003> build trebuchetsI want to check their front and pelt their backs at the same time. If we have burning pots, all the better.
>>40917031>Eh? Why stop it?Mostly due to the fact she has learned what is nescarry also the fear that the bishop and father might get the wrong impression from us.>>40917034>>40917045Guys, i dont think you know what kind of death fortress Ascalon is.
>>40917003> build trebuchetsEasier to transport, capable of destroying battlements and defenses, can breach a wall. A tower is nice, but other things, ladders and rams, etc, can be made at the siege. Also getting it there. Man that would be annoying.
>>40917003>> build trebuchets
>>40917055Ups qoated the wrong guys, i meant >>40917043>>40917031
>>40917003>>40917034I like the idea, though we should definitely work on getting more raw materials, but trebuchets are more important imo.
>>40917031>Eh? Why stop it?because she has graduated to ''competent'' & her concentration is needed elsewhere.also father & Archbishop are coming so we can't have unchristian behavior in our household> build one of eachwould be nice to know when that horse trading money will come in
>>40917070Yeah. But remember. The Queen has promised us her own war machines, so these wont be the only one we have. So i think we should focus on trebuchets
>>40917055>Guys, i dont think you know what kind of death fortress Ascalon is.Unless it is the kind that raises from the sands and summons Shai Hulud, siege towers vs fortified towers seems like a bad trade.
>>40917087actually change to > build trebuchetsAscalon's a hard nut to crack so we'll need a hammer or three
>>40917003>> build towerswith flamethrowers, agreed
>>40917103Yeah, i meant to quote the guys who wanted siege towers. My bad.
>>40917125why not just use naphtha as ammo for the trebs?
>>40917125That is not going to happen. And would be useless against the walls of Ascalon anon.
>>40917142>fireball!im so easily impressionable, im changing my vote to>trebuchets
>>40917149not against its defenders
>>40917185Ascalon's towers are very tall and our siege towers will be blown to tiny bits by the time they get within range.
Reminder the frontier is more Hospitaller than Templar, don't discount them yet.
>>40917339Dont think anyone of us has.
"Trebuchets," you said, "I've heard tales of Ascalon's walls, I wouldn't want to try an assault by tower."Achilles shrugged. "My towers are not Frank towers. They are not so easily crushed," he said, "But if that is your mind then so be it. I shall build for you a pair of monsters. Sisters. Real bitches. Have you ever seen a wall come down?"You shook your head.Achilles drew you close. "It is like nothing else. The stones pound and pound. To the lazy eye they seem to do nothing. But they batter and soften. Turn stone to butter that melts under the sun. Soon it is soft it begins to slide, slide down and crumble into a shower. Not a great explosion, not all ways, but a collapse. A falling apart that leaves a gap and rocky ground to fight over. And in that gap the worst fighting happens. A murdering. You do not want to be the first into that gap. But through it flows victory."He closed his hand and chuckled. "Yes, we will break the walls of Ascalon, and then I will rebuild them anew. Yes. See the first and marvel at the second. If you think Ascalon is hell now, wait until my hand has shaped it." He nodded his head, lost in dreams of destruction and creation as he wandered back to his drawing table.Achilles was not a warrior. Not a general. Not a leader of men. But he was something far more terrible. He was a mind bent on dreaming up wonders of death and birthing them into the world, setting them on mortal flesh. It near made your skin crawl to think what that man might build if he could.But it was a mind currently bent to your purpose, and for that reason you could only appreciate the man.You returned to your tower.A month would pass before your father's arrival, a figure that left you more nervous than the arch-bishop he escorted.You had time for one laborious task: > gather material for war machines> muster more troops> send letters to strengthen ties through out Jerusalem
>>40917365>> gather material for war machinesWhat little troops we can personally muster is insignificant compared to another warmachine.
>>40917365>> send letters to strengthen ties through out JerusalemTime to bard it up
>>40917339see the river here would make a great barrier against Fatamid raiders.if we can take Gaza & Darum I'd suggest getting Hospitallers to build castles here
>>40917365>> send letters to strengthen ties through out JerusalemWe shall gather forces under one banner. For the glory of our Queen.
>>40917365> send letters to strengthen ties through out JerusalemSome former Kingsmen must be dying to earn points with the Queen.
>>40917398Agreed. Is also much easier to protect and even better the closes thing Eqypt has to Jerusalem is Al-Arish which is in the middle of Sinai.
>>40917365> gather material for war machinesDelegate to Orlando or Etienne> muster more troopsDelegate to Solomon & Hugo obviously> send letters to strengthen ties through out JerusalemPersonally
>>40917365>>40917395> send letters to strengthen ties through out JerusalemAgreed, we need to continue to grow our pool of allies, our own levies are at near capacity. We need men-at-arms from the rest of the kingdom. Bard knight away!
>>40917365>>40917422If we can do this.
>>40917365> gather material for war machinesEven if Ascalon falls, we need to be sure we are in position to take credit. Our war machines are going to be best in class.
>>40917422If possible this..Otherwise > send letters to strengthen ties through out Jerusalem
>>40917432The Queen has already promised us all the help of her own loyal supporters. So i guess we should begin swaying the Fulk Supports and the neutrals.
>>40917365Achilles was not a warrior. Not a general. Not a leader of men. But he was something far more terrible. He was a mind bent on dreaming up wonders of death and birthing them into the world, setting them on mortal flesh. It near made your skin crawl to think what that man might build if he could. Greek fire when?
>>40917365> muster more troops> send letters to strengthen ties through out JerusalemGather to us who we can. Also it pays to set things up for after we possibly win or lose. Either securing favor for the turnover of Ascalon to a greater lord who has the resources and political base to posses such a city (Us getting lesser lands and considerations elsewhere), Or currying that favor for our own ascension to the city's helm. Or if the siege goes sour covering our ass.
Also.. we need good names for our Trebuchetsany ideas?
>>40917422this DELEGATION OP PLS NERF!
>>40917365>> gather material for war machineswe lucked out and got this genius, i think itd be best if used him
>>40917444>>40917442>>40917422It's not really stuff that can be delegated out. This is inter-kingdom stuff and requires a lordly position. Sorry.
>>40917422That's powergaming, anonStop trying to push every button
>>40917422ill back this
>>40917453Yeah, Fulk Supports first, the neutrals sway with the wind I'm willing to bet, so if we can gain the support of the loyalists, then the rest will shift as well. Unless his supporters are militarily or economically less important than the neutrals.
>>40917481Ah.Then > send letters to strengthen ties through out Jerusalem
>>40917365>> gather material for war machines
>>40917481fuck > send letters to strengthen ties through out Jerusalem
>>40917471Ill TidingsBack breakerAscaloffStone Bane
>>40917527Fulk and Melisende
>>40917527David and Joshua (Joshua took down Jericho, David was Israels greatest warrior king)>>40917527>Ascalofflmaoooo
>>40917471There must be some holy women from back in Trier to name them after. Jusy a small thing for the Bishop.
>>40917471What was the French name for Bad Neighbor?
>>40917527Germanic Wrath and Holy Rage
>>40917471 Megaera ("grudging") and Tilphousia ("vengeful destruction")After the Furies from ancient Greece.
>>40917527The Bitch of Ramla I think hugo would like that one
>>40917568(The) Jericho March, that's pretty snazzy. For the Joshua name that's not latin (Aka catholic) enough.
Can Mathilde still practice in secret with Hugo?
>>40917688You can do anything if you are discreet enough anon.
>>40917647this is the holy land! i think its not a bad idea to throw back to the Old Testament
>>40917688Hugo is Solomoning, and Mathilde will be housekeeping
>>40917688can she not instead?
>>40917700Hahahahaha, gross!But seriously, she showed some real promise there, it'd be a waste to stop right then. In character, it makes sense for Wilhelm to forbid her as it's not really needed, Dad's coming, and he needs Solomon working towards Ascalon, but she almost won against Hugo. I really think she could be worthy of carrying that shield.
>>40917688>>40917700Shit guys its only one, or more, months, and wilhelm's father is scary. Don't make a mountain out of an anthill. She will be busy with the prep too.
>>40917775She's good enough to stab infantryman #2 if they are rude
>>40917719Maybe going hunting with Viyan?
>>40917775It doesn't have to be forever, just at least until daddy's gone and terrorizes someone else.
>>40917809nah im fully prepared to tony montana our sistertony montana wanted to fuck his sister and fucked up every guy she got with
>>40917806She still needs practice, I said she showed promise.
So. Any betting on if father is bringing Hugo's mother with him aswell ?
>>40917775no if she's going to war more than now it will end in rape
>>40917874>Bringing whores to the Holy Land
>>40917874Its happening the dude probably can't help himself moreso than Wilhelm can
You spent the month at your writing desk, sending letters across the realm. You wrote to the Prince of Galilee and the Lords of Oultrejordan. On them you heaped praise, and wrote of your allegiance to Jerusalem and her Queen. You wrote to the lords of cities, Caesarea and Beirut. You wrote to Tripoli, and Sidon. To friends and enemies alike. You put your name forward so that they might keep you in mind, and made pleasant with them, you wrote to them of their troubles and offered emotive support.You talked about Turks and Saracens, the troubles with the local people. You grumbled and shared greviences. You let them know that you were not a foreign adventurer. That you were a man of the Levant just as they were. Letters returned with thanks from the lords for your message. Some more appreciative than others.Pagan seemed most receptive to you, though he had been close to Fulk. He ruled Outlrejordan had was long troubled by raiders from Sinai. None rebuked you except in what they didn't say. Coldest was Walter of Caesarea, who disliked your liege and the queen both, but he spoke no outright insult.You had little time for else but correspondence when the letter fluttered across your table.Your father had landed in Jaffa.It set you down to inspect Rosalie. Chihirizahd and Mathilde both had been aiding her. And when you came upon Rosalie caressing Chihirizahd's neck you knew she had been helping Rosalie in more ways than one. The seneschal certainly appeared less stressed."All is ready," Rosalie said, "And there has been nothing but a boon from the aid you lent me." She had her hand on the small of Chihirizahd's back, thought she was not being obvious.Mathilde was not so happy with playing house keeper, and only raised her chin at you when you tried to draw her into conversation. Your order to end her swordsmanship had put you outside of her good grace.
>>40917909generally none marshal subjects more like
>>40917909Nah. We should focus her on to become more like Melisende and less like Sabeen.
>>40917775I don't see why we would want to use her that way. It's historically inaccurate, and the court intrigue we could use her for, not to mention a political alliance, dictates her Cha and Int should be higher. Not to mention the constant threat of rape for a young girl on campaign.
Hey, we should ask for Orlando's advice, he's smart!
"Lady Chihirizahd, please tell my lord brother that I am happy to have assisted in my womanly duties," she said, "But that if he has any wish to speak with me he will have to petition my time. I'm ever so busy." She said as she plucked a hair from her shoulder. You gritted your teeth. Childish brat. Chihirizahd did not go through the labour of indulging Mathilde's mood."You best keep that tongue pleasant when father arrives," you warned, "Or I might just let him drag you back to that convent." That had her blue eyes wide and manner more civil.You had a lunch of an apple and glared at everyone that crossed your path. Your father had a way of putting you in a foul mood.But there was nothing for it but to wait for his arrival. Until then...> nominate a companion to spend time with
>>40917928I hate Melisende. Why would we ever want to become like that? She is an awful person.
>>40917959Tancred see how he's doing and the land as well.
>>40917959Franz, help>>40917971anon pls no self-insert
>>40917971She is a great politician and excellent in the skills of intrigue and statemanship. A great monarch.
>>40917959Franz>For fucks sake man help me!!!!!
>>40917959Franz might help us to prepare dealing with father. They were very close.
>>40917989>>40917991In character, why would Wilhelm want his sister to be like Melisende?
>>40918047>>40917991For those reasons. Melisende is a great ruler.
>>40918047Cause shes a classy woman, and the fucking Queen, beautiful and beloved by all
>>40918044Because we never spend any time with him even though he saved us, and he's supposedly smart, and could help is formulate a campaign and set up some logistics.
>>40918047the better question is why the fuck would Mathilde not want to be like Melisande?
>>40918047So far, Wilhelm doesn't like women in convents, and respects women with authority and independence. Lucca, Melisende, Iovetta is in the works.
>>40918047Because, being a self-centered individual, having a sister who is courtly would have less potential to impact his reputation than a brute of a woman for a sister hacking and slashing in a most unladylike manner.
>>40917938That's boring. That's so boring! I can't believe how boring that is!
>>40918079>So far, Wilhelm doesn't like women in convents,there's an obvious reason for that anonhe can't fuck them>>40918069he's not that smart, I wanted to send him off to procure matireals for our siege engines as a show of good faith in him but that fell through>>40917959>FranzJew uncle is going to be our last best hope for things going smoothly

>>40917471Mathilde and Ioveta
>>40918148Hey, that's what the sword is for. Or a dagger in the sleeve.
>>40918183Then the rapist's friends are gonna slit her throat and rape her corpse. Really. We should make sure she stays faaaar away from all of that kind of things.
>>40918183>Hey, that's what the sword is for. great she already has one she can use when she's NOT on campaign & is at court like a good woman>Or a dagger in the sleeveHF addressed that on twitter & said it was ''Impractical''
>>40918209>>40918183not to mention if she being raped she's going to obviously be pinned down

>>40918113Yep it's not anime, it's historical fiction. Mundane real world complications and limitations will apply. Working against many things, including social taboos will result in unpleasant results.

>>40918303>>40918280>>40918261fuck it's last thread all over again
>>40918222I like it
>>40918267I still think having a reputation as a shieldmaiden and archer and some bodyguards would be good for courtly intrigues.Now that I think about what I've said, I guess I just think it'd be cool to have Sun Shangxiang as a sister.
>>40918326That it would.Perhaps we could allow dear sister to indulge in some more practice after papa leaves.
>>40918326>I just think it'd be cool to have Sun Shangxiang as a sister.I'd rather Sima yi/Zhuge liang because you know......less rape
>>40918296>>40918296I might actually argue he's past that point, but I agree, we've used our modern lens to move in directions that may complicate all our efforts. I really enjoy that HF will point blank tell us at times that our stand on a choice will be fruitless because the time period will not allow for it, while giving us the maneuverability to alter what does happen in radically different directions.
>>40918326>I still think having a reputation as a shieldmaiden and archer and some bodyguards would be good for courtly intrigues.No. No, it would most certainly not. Atleast not having it public like that.
>>40918326weve only got one sister man lets not waste her like that
>>40918326Yeah, I'm sorry, I'm totally just projecting Wu onto our MCs.An archery Mathilde would be pretty cool though!
>>40918364No we dont. We have Giselle. But yeah. It would be foolish to waste her like that.
>>40918364We have another sister.
>>40918326You only get that if you have both walls and coins.It's not a good build for intrigue either, it is more "this Abbess is erasing crime with mercenaries"
>>40918390Giselle is all the way in Deuchsland who knows if well ever see her again
>>40918364>>40918390 Mathilde is the exact age that's perfect seduce Louis the VII and became the pants of the french family
>>40918326I can understand that it's a fun idea to have a badass shield maiden sister, but I think it's not only impractical in the setting, but can have dangerous implications in too many areas to allow her training to continue. We've given her self-defense which, with our CHA, we can play off as commendable, that should be enough.
>>40918421I dont think she is important enough, not even if we take Ascalon. A Duke maybe ? But that is as high i think she will get.But then again. She might get lucky.
>>40918421She needs Lead and Cha, not so much War
You go to see your oldest friend, with your lunk head squire for company.Franz had taken up with a widowed mother in the town. You knocked on her door, and it opened to a pretty young woman of tan skin and curling black hair. She had a bit of wear around the eyes, and a plump mouth that seemed to turn from pout to smile with ease.Must be the daughter. Or so you thought until a skin need brat pulled on her skirt and was hefted up in her arms for a kiss on the cheek, and Franz came behind her to put his hands upon her wide hips. He was smiling, which morphed his face into strange and terrible dimensions.The smile died when he saw you. "My lord," she said with a nervous fidget, "You grace us.""The fuck do you want?" he asked. The woman slapped him on the arm and he gave her a wounded look.The old bastard was in love. It started in your belly until it shook out your mouth, a long laugh.You pulled the old Jew forward into a hug."Please, come and eat with us," the woman offered you her home. You came in giggling, arm wrapped around Franz. A table had been set with pottage to eat. They offered you a humble bowl.She had four children. One near ten and the others growing smaller beneath her. Her husband had been killed by raiders only a few years ago. Widowhood was common in the holy land.But it was Franz who had your attention. "Your father?" he said, rubbing his stubbly chin, "Well it'll be good to see Old Wil again.""I've never got on with him," you said, "You know him better than anyone else. How must I be to keep it from being a disaster?"Franz considered the question. "Your father is a mean old prick," he concluded, "If he is in a shit mood there's not much you can do except survive him.""Why is he so hard to please?" you asked, "I've never shamed him."Franz scratched his nose.
>>40918444 it all depends on how Ascalon goes by then Wilhelm would hypothetically be close to a Duke in theory holding multiple cities.>>40918450 I meant psychological pants not WAR pants
>>40918444we will have marital ties to the royal family of jerusalem
"Do you know the battle that saw us made brothers?" he asked. You shook your head. "It was a mean fight. Before it Wilhelm had been as smiling a man as you'd ever met. A bit of a romantic. 'Til he went off to war. It hardened him some. He had a brother, one he doesn't speak of any more. Klaus. Good man. Better than we were. The best of us. Their father's favourite. He's dead now. Dead the same as Eloise and Marco, and half a dozen other friends."You'd never heard of any of this."Your grandfather had no charm. He hated your old man because he had it in surplus. A pretty girl, friends. Things his father had never known outside the course of duty. When he returned from war both hardened and his heir, your grandfather did much to make sure the changes stuck. An efficient man. He broke what joy of life the war had not taken. Left him mean."Franz's eyes were glassy. "He loves still, even if he has no joy. Never doubt that. He loves you and your sisters, the little bastard Hugo. All in his own fashion. Even your mother."The old man sighed, and his woman rubbed his back. Franz got up, and saw you to the door."Just be yourself Wil," he said, "The man loves you more than you think."Before you left you looked the old man over. His woman stood behind him, wrapped arms around his chest. The man looked happy. "Thinking about marriage?" you asked.He scowled. "Not in your life time," and closed the door curtly. You walked home with a smile.-
>>40918479Wil.....Wil had a hard life
I wonder what Maggie's up to? Is Mathilde delegating some work onto her?
>>40918421He's a stupid frenchman tho
>>40918479Ah Franz. Good to see you've found someone.Also, A child of ten.Perhaps we should see if hes suitable at being a squire soon.
The day arrived. You took horse to greet them. You took your household and horsemen. Your knights and soldiers beside you on the road that led to the Jerusalem high way. Beside you was your sister, who sat nervously on a docile little mare. On the other was Hugo, who looked especially grim. Both had groomed themselves carefully, assembled their best. Mathilde was a radiant young woman, inching ever onward to womanhood. Hugo a stern boy soon to be a stern man.You were proud of them both.You saw the banner of Trier, a cross, and spear points, light on helms. And dust kicked up by marching feet.And then you saw the bishop a-horse, and with him knights. Your father, head of his household, rode at his right hand. Other men rode beside them and behind. A military procession.Archbishop Albero was a man of folded fat that creased his chin and neck. He was not a venerable ancient but he was old. He wore his vestments, which had become stained brown in places from the Levant dust. Albero was not lovely to look upon, but his fish bulging eyes possessed a wisdom.Your father had a fine coat of maile, the tabard of his lord, and a sour look. Wilhelm the Elder was a handsome man of mid-forties, black hair streaked with grey, and wrinkles that only distinguished his features. With him were two women. Golden haired and riding side saddle was his paramour. She was a merry woman that laughed easily and had a bearing of self-sufficiency. Brown haired and plain was your mother, and gloom hung over her like a cloud."Where is Giselle?" Mathilde wondered aloud. Perhaps she remained home.The Archbishop's party stopped before you. He raised a hand."Lord Ramla," he said, voice carrying well. He had a good voice for oratory."Archbishop Albero," you bowed.He offered you his hand. It was set with rings. Your father watched.> kiss his ring> don't
>>40918637Since we have already pledged ourselves to our queen, does old protocol allow us to still kiss the ring, showing deference to a former master? Or should a good subject not kiss the ring?
>>40918637> kiss his ring
>>40918589it's not like the current bar is very high anon>>40918637>Golden haired and riding side saddle was his paramourDAMMIT FATHER> kiss his ringhe's a papal authority right?
>>40918637> kiss his ringIt would be a faux paus if we didnt. He is a religious elder.
>>40918637>> kiss his ringlets not make waves
>>40918637>> kiss his ring
>>40918637>Kiss his ringWe kiss everyone's ring, and fuck their wives
>>40918667If i remember correctly it is quite common to kiss the ring of a bishop in catholicsm as a sign of respect.
I am just worried about father's and mother's reaction to Chiri
>>40918716Ah. Well then, thanks for the info.>>40918637>> kiss his ring
>>40918732why? pops got the same type of set up too
>>40918732I'm worried about how we'll treat Chiri in front of them.
>>40918732>Goddamit son you just had to be like ol'dad
>>40918732She's playing the maid right now. But we do have a lot of girls around.
>>40918740Yeah but he seems like the kind of guy who thinks "it is only okay when i do it" and mother probably end up seeing her son turn out just like her husband which cant be a good thing for her.
>>40918750>Chiriyou mean the new maid that is thoroughly christian right?
>>40918359So rather than thinking modern, would you suggest we should start thinking ancient?If so, we should totally see if we can find a guy with the biggest dick possible to get the Queen off our front.
>>40918771>Implying that Wilhelm's marriage won't be the Joy of the levant
>>40918773No, she's not Christian. She's our slave and bed companion.
>>40918801do you even sarcasm
>>40918779Smuggle a eunuch in Ryo fui style?>>40918801 NO SHIT SHERLOCK
>>40918637But which one do we kiss?
>>40918775saddest song ive ever heard
>>40918811Hiding that would piss her off. Did you even watch Seasons 2-4 of Game of Thrones?
>>40918830>implying Chiri is not in fact smart enough to figure that we are doing it for a good fucking reason>Implying you can even begin to compare Chiri to fucking Shae
>>40918830she knows whats what
Guys. Lets just try to keep her out of sight as much as possible and just act indifferent to her as if she is just another maid.
>>40918865How 'bout no, and let's grow some?
Lets not worry too much about it people. Lets take it as it comes.
>>40918849>>40918865You know what she would gather from this? That she's an embarrassment to us.
>>40918884ThisThe Bard Knight's way
You kissed the signet ring. Albero smiled. His authority was assured."We were most pleased to receive your invitation," he said, "To hear that a son of ours has risen so high in defense of Christendom. You have been awake while the rest of us slept." Then he offered you a sign of respect, and kissed your cheek.You motioned for his entourage to continue onward. Your father glanced your way as he passed, attention more upon Mathilde than upon you. Next rode his lover, and then your mother. She paused to consider you and your sister, and looked for a moment as if she might weep. It was not unusual for your mother.You fell in behind the bishop's retinue. He had brought a good body of troops for his safety, some where in the region of forty in all.The rest of your household, servants, rushed to aid the bishop's party in unloading their burdens.When you dismounted your father approached."We should speak," he said.The archbishop was helped from his saddle by one of his knights, grunting all the way. The ride could not have been comfortable.> speak with your father> the archbishop comes first
>>40918906> speak with your father
>>40918906> speak with your fatherAlbero can find our altar and priest inside
>>40918906> the archbishop comes firstPriorities people
>>40918906>> speak with your father
Guys, can we send someone to jaffa to buy the hunting bird and delicer a letter to Malik offering him a job if /when his contract with Hugh is up
>>40918906>> the archbishop comes firstSorry father I must attend the Bishop. After he has been accomadated I will see to you and we shall speak then.
>>40918946Nah, if we miss out on a moment with our father now, HF will never give us the chance again. Of course, if we don't go help the Archbishop, we miss out on a political boon.
>>40918906> the archbishop comes firstHe is our guest of honour and we need to see to his needs first as much as i would love to talk to family first we have to stay focused.
>>40918946why is he a priority?guys can we ask our dad if we can invite our mother to stay, she would be happier here
>>40918977Away from her 8-year-old daughter?
>>40918977>guys can we ask our dad if we can invite our mother to stay, she would be happier hereNope. Being exiled from your house doesn't look good from any angle
>>40918906Speak to father
>>40918977Oh gee I dunno maybe its because he's a FUCKING ARCHBISHOP OF THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE THAT WE COULD GET ON SIDE FOR ASCALON
>>40918906use CHA to make sure Bishop is given due respect, then> speak with your father
Guys. This is the Prince-Bishop of Trier, Arch Bishop of the Holy Roman Empire and a Elector. He is probably the most important person who we have ever met.
>>40919033Fuck the Germans and their armies, they're gonna drown on the way to the Holy Land anyway. To be honest, I'm surprised the Koblenzes even got here.
>>40919033blood is blood guy id never show another man respect over my own father
>>40919033I understand that he is important and all but I very much doubt that this visit will result in troops. I think it`s more a personal thing
>>40919033It's bad enough that we have the Genoans helping us, the foreigners need to leave.
>>40919094I believe it is because you dont understand just how important this man is.
>>40919077Dunno, Roger seemed pretty baller
>>40919107>>40919100We invited him on the suggestion of Hugh to help us take Ascalon. Seriously guys ?
>>40918906>> the archbishop comes first
>>40918906> the archbishop comes first
>>40918906Changing >>40918929 to> the archbishop comes first
>>40919100then you're being a fool, if the man has come from Trier to visit us there is obviosuly more at play than personal tribute>>40919107we invited him here chucklefuck
>>40919169Maybe you did, but I didn't.
just a reminder friends samefagging is rude and selfish
>>40919218Well, deleting posts is a hassle, so I just vote twice for the other when I change my mind.
You rebuffed him and a look came across his face. Not anger but pain. The man nodded though.You went to help the knight see the archbishop settled. With him was Father Desmond."Oh this land is lovely, just lovely," the archbishop said, "The sun is warm, the air is dry. It's a fine land." He was speaking with your priest, who could only offer agreement.You offered the archbishop the aid of your hand, and he took it. You walked him in."Rooms have been prepared," you said, "Our last guest to stay in them was the royal household, Queen Melisende herself.""They should be adequate," your father said, coming to walk with his liege. "I will inspect them personally, make certain that they are adequate.""We've heard much of this Queen Melisende," the archbishop said, "She has earned the ire of half of France. Tell me, what is your judgement of her?"You stopped at the foot of the staircase. The archbishop maintained a fatherly smile. Your father continued to frown. What did they hope to hear from you?> heap praise upon her> diminish her> be fair in your judgement
>>40919278> heap praise upon herTruely a worthy guardian of this kingdom of heaven
>>40919278> heap praise upon herWe have a high CHA, they'll buy it.
>>40919278> heap praise upon herbut offer some praise to Fulk as well, he's held the Saracens at bay too.
>>40919278> be fair in your judgment"A wise, just, and merciful ruler, also we shagged there, and there, and there, and alllll over there"
>>40919278>> heap praise upon heras true a disciple of the Lord as befits the earthly ruler of this land
>>40919278> heap praise upon herShe took control of a kingdom by pure statemanship, she's one to watch
>>40918952We can do it after the greetings are done, I think.
>>40919278>> heap praise upon her
>>40919331We did it for her, and she got it because her daddy kicked it without any sons.
>>40919278> be fair in your judgementProclaim your approval, but moderately
>>40919278>> be fair in your judgement
>>40919361Why? Don't you want Germany to have good relations with Jerusalem?
>>40919344Fulk did a faux pas by making enemies of half the kingdom, she was ready to counter on her own
>>40919391Hahaha, no she was not.
>>40919278What the hell is fair judgment? Confessing our and her adultery? We have nothing but good to say about her besides that.
>>40919438Think the word fair is being used as "moderate" in this case.
>>40919278>be fair in your judgement1. we don't know what they've heard2. we don't know what Hugh's said to them 3. we don't want to inflame the rumours of an affair
>>40919458>"Oh, the queen? She's good I suppose. Send some troops her way to help keep the Holy Land from falling to muslims, why don't you."
>>40919460Hugh has been under house arrestIf Hugh has been talking shit we need to act totally oblivious, acting shady will make them more suspicious its totally realistic to be supportive of our Queen after we fucking gave a grand speech that deposed her husband and put her on the throne, wouldnt it be suspicious and weird to backpedal now?
>>40919278I wonder if our old knight we used to squire for is here.
>>40919503Our butt still kinda hurts, now that I think about it.
>>40919500>Hugh has been under house arrestyou mean Fulk right?
>>40919500Fulk anon. Fulk is the one who has been under house arrest. Hugh is our liege lord.
>>40919522i do im stupid
>>40919460>2. we don't know what Hugh's said to themWell, if we know Hugh, he's probably spoken to them about how she's his waifu.
>>40919535The Queen really wish she wasnt. I can just imagine her mailbox being full of crappy poetry and love letters from him
>>40919535speaking of do you think we could inflame that Waifuism to the point where he thinks she'll marry him if he deposes her?secondly we could get Caesara onside by promising him a chance at revenge on Hugh because we don't like how obsessive Hugh has become with Melisande?
>>40919584drama will find us, anon. No need to plot ploys
>>40919584Easy there anon. That is a far away future and a lot can happen. Lets just focus on the task at hand cause that path lies only Shadowrunning.
>>40919584So you're saying that we could get Hugh to rid us our royal pain if we can convince him to Man Up?
>>40919610What royal pain ?
>>40919604Drama will find us regardless, but I think we should move against hugh subtly so that he may misstep before he can move against us. >>40919610yes
>>40919610>>40919637Are you guys shadowrunning now?
>>40919628Adultery is really, really bad.
>>40919654not really we just need to do this one plot
>>40919664Only if it gets found out in public. We are fine so long it is a secret and even a public secret. Only a problem if Wil or Melisende are being idiots.
"Queen Melisende is Jerusalem," you said, "Never has the realm been overseen by a more just or pious woman. Nor has it seen one more beautiful. She has charm to add to her beauty, and no man is proof against it. She speaks with the learning of a scholar and commands with the authority of a Roman general. She is beloved by all her subjects, and she guards them like a mother."You stop, and smile as you often did when Melisende came into your thoughts."What is she? She is my queen, and I am happy to serve her."Your father's brow lowers but Albero seems delighted by your words, clapping his ring strewn hands together. He remarks as you guide him to the chambers set for his party that he will be sure to visit Jerusalem after visiting you. He simply had to meet such a remarkable individual for himself.Your father stands before the archbishop's door, his eyes filled with some suspicion."Well it seems you've been putting that tongue of yours to good use," he said, "Do you sharpen it on a whet stone, or the cunt of Queen Melisende?"It was bait, of course. Even if your father suspected within a certainty that you had become the queen's lover.> rebuke him> trade insult for insult> depart without speaking
>>40919670>we just need to do this one plotthat's one step beyond shadowruns
>>40919677> trade insult for insultOnly fools and kitchen girls listen to idle gossip Which one are you father ?
>>40919677>> rebuke him
>>40919610I don`t know man, marring the queen is way better than marring a girl 245 miles away in the line to the throne
>>40919677>Which glistens brighter, her sweat or her tears?
>>40919677> rebuke himIn a court of lawHe should meet Burres, they plot alike
>>40919712oh snap this 100 times
>>40919677>> rebuke himFather calm yourself. Insults such as that are beneath both of us. As the Lord of Ramla do not speak of my Queen in such a manner.
>>40919677Insult for inaultMan up guys!"And good to see you too father"
>>40919712oh shit snap yes this
>trash talking your fatherGentlemen, contain your edges
>>40919785>contain your edgesin the whore queen's cunt?
>>40919785But we cant allow him to insult us like that by spreading baseless rumors in our own castle.
>>40919712Okay I'm pretty sure 'she' is Wil's mum, but I've been wrong about anon intentions before. 'She' is his mum right?
>>40919785Our father is just showing his love by testing us. If we were man enough to support our beliefs he wouldn't question our decision to back the queen.
>>40919831Think he is refering to his lover and our mother.
>>40919831(the former is Hugo's the latter is ours)
>>40919785You did noticed that he insulted us and our queen in our household? Do you want to give father the impression we are a weak push over?
>>40919831yes yes it is
>>40919831first 'her' is the paramour, implication is the sweat from lovemaking, seconnd 'her' is the tears of WIlhelms mother, uk roundabout way of saying youre breaking her heart you fucking p o s
>>40919861>>40919853>>40919845Okay, got it.That's what I thought, but didn't want to assume.
>>40919854I worry about confrontational attitudes over petty things. Main stat is CHA, not SNAP.
>>40919882We don't get on well with Dad. Sure, we would give our life for him, but we don't have to like it.
>>40919882>Main stat is CHA, not SNAP.but anon that is what CHA is
>>40919882I would normally agree but there come times when you need to put your foot down and this is one of those moments.
>>40919882dude i voted rebuke but that was just too good not to use
Hmm, y'all think we should just stick to one secret bastard per girl?
"Tell me father, which pleases you more. Mother's tears, or Unna's sweat?" you asked.His chin came forward in a way you knew meant he was angry. You'd earned the back of his hand before, perhaps less than would have been healthy."Unna is here for her son, not for me," he said, "I couldn't rightly refuse after my own son dragged her boy off to the other side of the world."That...was not wrong."Mother seemed on the verge of sobbing when she saw us," you said.Your father rolled his eyes. "Perhaps that is because she has missed her children and lived in fear for their lives? God knows your mother needs little reason for tears." Then he gave you a derisive look. "Are you going to stand here and trade insults with a guest, or at least pretend to be a sovereign lord?"Your gut clenched with anger. The man just had the perfect way of making you feel foolish.> give him another before departing> just walk away
>>40919988> just walk awayThis is a battle we cant win. Lets go see mother.
>>40919988> just walk away
>>40919981Poor chiri, she won`t be part of the secret bastard club.We should give her a falcon instead
>>40919988>> just walk away"My apologies father. I shall see you later."Give him at least this.
>>40919988>> give him another before departing"Come now father, we have hardly begun to spar yet. It couldn't be that you weary of the field so soon."
>>40919988Give him another and show him his chambers
>>40919988>> just walk away
>>40920057This, all in good nature.And don`t leave him. Spare the man some time
>>40919988> give him another before departing>"Still hiding behind your children, I see!"
>>40920080>This, all in good nature.>Your gut clenched with anger. The man just had the perfect way of making you feel foolish.It really isnt.
>>40920036No matter what wins, I vote against apologies
>>40920080We can't have a civil conversation with him, his CHA is too high.
>>40920094We pretend anon, if we walk away we just confirm our fellings of inadequacy
>>40920094It isn't, but there is no need for there to be a winner and a looser in a verbal exchange like this.
>>40919988> just walk awayafter saying "it is good to see you father" without sarcasm
>>40920116>>40920132Really can't cut losses, any time here?
>>40919988> just walk away''Its GOOD to see you too father'' with a shitton of sarcasm
>>40919988>>40920140this sounds acceptable...
>>40920140UNACCEPTABLE, QUIT BEING SUCH A BETA
>>40920176hes our dad man he literally traveled for weeks to see us we cant act like an immature punk now that hes here
>>40920193Maybe later when he's not JUDGING US
Sorry, short break.
>>40920205Is this the beginning of it, or the end?
>>40920193and the first thing that comes out of his mouth in front of our esteemed guest is suggesting on nothing more than baseless rumor that we've fucked our queen who is infact a married woman
>>40919988>>40920140thisbefore walking away
>>40920217we hurt his feelings by prioritizing the bishop over himhurting people hurt people
>>40920193I think you misunderstood who the immature punj is in this situation
>>40920253no matter what hes still our father and family.we should extend the olive branch.
>>40920236he's a fucking knight he's priority is lower than that of our guest.if he expected more fuck him
>>40920225What is with you, we're fighting verbally, this is like if we hugged somebody while dueling them.
>>40920268ok, i have a different opinion than you>>40920253hes definitley being petty, doesnt matter much its just words
>>40920281do you even judo?
>>40920281i coukd see that happening in the middle of a fight between two long lost relatives"fuck this noise i love ya paw" haha
>>40920281Why not.Its literally our dad who travelled god knows how far to see us over how long.No matter the quarrel, hes still family. And family sticks together.
>>40920324Once he stop being a petty cunt and stop beliving himself to be the center of the world.
>>40920338real life issues?
>>40920338Wow, we are his son!
>>40920342>>40920341I know exactly how Wilhelm must be feeling. Trust me
>>40920348lifes a bitch anon. good luck
>>40920324this is the same man who told us to spare him ''every embarassment'' whats the first thing he says? hey son how are you? NO HE FUCKING ACCUSES US OF FUCKING THE QUEENfuck him & the horse he rode in on
>>40920364/tg/ has to be the friendliest board on 4chan.
>>40920367Hmmm... Why not a hunting trip with the other siblings?
>>40920388because we're the lord of the castle & have responsibilities?
>>40920367Who knows what he would have said if we spoke to him when he originally wanted to?
>>40920403yeah well he should know fucking court etiquette after serving an Archbishop for 18+ years
>>40920400But our father's over, we can take a day off. However, we'd need Solomon and Rosalie's permission.
>>40920424>However, we'd need Solomon and Rosalie's permission.wat>>40920403He should know better.
>>40920268"Son, its been years, there is so much i need to tell you""One sec dad after i go lick the asshole of this man whos more important than you are"Maybe Giselle died on the trip or something guys
>>40920442He did say we need to speak, our mother was crying and we did`nt see her.....
"Well, it was good to see you too father," you said with a curt nod, walking away.You felt your father glower after you. Some times saying nothing is the most cutting thing possible.In your courtyard you found Hugo. He was currently being smothered by his mother Unna. She had him in a great tight hug, his face buried against her chest. She was crying with joy, a broad smile upon her face. A lovely woman, Unna, made lovelier by her shining joy to see her son.Hugo laughed and cringed in equal measure, trying to ignore the other men-at-arms watching."I should be so lucky to be smothered like that," one soldier chuckled in German, grabbing at his crotch to the laughter of his companions.> rescue Hugo from his mother> leave him to his mother
>>40920513>> leave him to his motherLets go find our own.
>>40920513> punch a dickhead
>>40920513>> leave him to his mother
We should fuck Hugo's mom
>>40920513> leave him to his motheroh crap where's Solomon?
>>40920513>> leave him to his mothermaybe Hugos mom wants to stay?Lets go talk to our Momma
>>40920513>> leave him to his motherWe should go check up on our mom ourselves.
>>40920513Can we pleeeease invite his mother to stayId love to see Hugo get embarresed by his mom in front of his friends :3
>>40920513>> rescue Hugo from his motherPoor boy has been trying to be seen as a man for some time now.
>>40920570Except she is just acting like that cause she has been worried sick and hasnt seen her son in over a year.
>>40920542Fucking not only our lil bro's mom, but our father's sloppy seconds? You deserve to be burned at the stake for such heresy
>>40920584I dont think Wilhelm care about such things as sloppy seconds considering all the married women he has been with.
>>40920601im 100% against fucking Hugos mom, no reason to turn a fanatically loyal warrior in training against us, but yeah lets invite her to stay
>>40920601We sure as hell don`t give a rats ass to the bonds of marriage and rhe purity of maidenheads
>>40920632Father wouldn`t like that one bit
You leave your brother to his joyful if embarrassing reunion and instead search for your own mother.You heard her first."My baby!" she cried, clutching Mathilde, stroking her velvety black hair, "My gorgeous little girl!"Mathilde's eyes were wide and face bright red. Staring into dead space. Many were staring at them. Those that didn't understand German wondered if the mousey looking woman was ill or if someone had died.When your mother's eyes turned and saw you, she beckoned you over and pulled you into the same embrace. She gave heavy sobs that made it sound as if she would be sick."Easy mum," you said, patting her back and stroking her hair, "Everything is alright."You pushed off your red eyed mother, who looked up at you with trembling lips."Oh I'm such a mess," she looked like she might cry because of that. Luckily not. Unna intervened."Come along Brun, come along," she said, taking your mother by the shoulder, "Let's get you some rest and then you can see your children with a clear head. The road has been so tiring." Unna gave you a smile that showed off her dimples as she led your mother off. The two fell together like sisters, or like patient and nurse, Unna helping her toward the stairs and Brunn sniffing back tears with every step.Mathilde continued to stare. "I could die," she said, and grabbed her throat, mimed a hanging with tongue out the corner of her mouth.You snorted, ruffled her hair. "Unfortunately we must live," you said, and kissed her cheek."Well, of course we must survive this," she replied coyly, a pleased smile and slight blush, "Let us hope it is not entirely a horror."> check on the archbishop> check on your father> check on your mother> check on Hugo> return to your duties as lord
>>40920684>> check on your father
>>40920684>> check on HugoAnd bring dear sister along.
>>40920601>mfw Hugo's new lil bro is also his nephew.
>>40920684>> return to your duties as lord
> check on your mother>>40920684
>>40920684>> check on the archbishopapologies for our father & our attitude>> check on your fathergive him a piece of our mind
>>40920684Check on father, he wanted to talk and qe didn`t
>>40920684>> check on your motherGoing with this since we haven't really talked to her yet about our adventures yet.
>>40920684>Gather Hugo and bring along Mathilde>Go check on our mothers as a family
Seems like mother is not with good health. We should probably have Chiri look after her.
>>40920740What atitude man? The bishop was not present when we talked to father
>>40920684> check on your father
>>40920684>>40920763Do it. Family all together minus father.
>>40920684> check on the archbishopAlright. Time to do business guys. This isnt a vacation
>>40920684>Check on father>>40920764This too
You resolved to go meet with your father again.He was still outside the Archbishop's chambers. He was also chatting with a woman, leaning against the door. That woman was Chihirizahd."If I had known the women of the Levant were so beautiful I would have visited the Holy Land sooner," he said, "Seeing you has made all the rigour worth the effort.""You jest sir," she said, batting a hand and smiling, "I think you merely look to flatter a simple girl.""Not at all," he replied, "I am an honest man, and speaking plainly. If I wished to flatter you I would..." he leaned forward and whispered something in her ear. Something that made her blush and then snort with laughter, pushing him away. He grinned and leaned in again, but did not overbear her. "So when I say you are the loveliest creature I've seen in months, know that it is true.""Well," she replied, "I guess I will have to suffer a compliment." She smoothed the silk of her dress and walked away, past you with a subtle wink. Your father watched her walk away with a glint in his eye.One that soured when it turned to you."Come for more insults?" he asked.> if that's all there is from you> come to bury the hatchet> write-in
>>40920959>> if that's all there is from youThough to be honest I'd rather stop sniping at each other.
>>40920959> come to bury the hatchet
>>40920959>> come to bury the hatchet
>>40920959> write-in"You wanted to talk, talk"Also remind him that the last man who tried anything with Chiri got 10 lashes ?
>>40920982this if he wants to bury the hatchet later let him
>>40920959 > come to bury the hatchet
>>40920959 >> come to bury the hatchetCant keep being aggrieved. Its the ancient times and we still must respect our father.
He will end up insulting us, dominating us then fuck Chiri with how you people are acting.
>>40921027someones got daddy issues
>>40921027Not constantly being a dick to our father is not the same as letting him walk all over us. It's like you have no idea how social interaction and compromise works. Chiri knows what she's doing and he kept himself in check despite the flirting.
>>40921027I agree if hes still being a brat after this we dont have to play nice anymore
I guess Assassins got HF again. RIP
"Come to bury the hatchet," you said."In my head?" your father asked with a skeptical eye.You clenched your teeth. "You are a guest in my home, you are my father, its best we at least behave civilly."Your father considered you. "As you say Lord Ramla, I am a guest in your home," he reached forward and adjusted the toggle on your doublet, "I shall keep my corrections to a minimum, and only sit in silence if you make a misstep.""Any mistakes are mine to make," you said, "This is my lordship. Remember that."Your father stepped back. You outranked him here. "When we leave I am taking Mathilde with me," he said, "She is disobedient. She ran away. She must be disciplined for that. Also, I have decided on a husband for her.""Who?" you asked.He did not seem over pleased with what he was about to say. "My friend Hermann's older brother has past, leaving him next in line to land in Koblenz. It is a suitable match. His nephew is a frail child, and Hermann has not been unsubtle about wishing to marry into our family." He looked down the corridor. "I saw Hermann in the crowd. We could perhaps arrange the wedding before we leave."> very well> Mathilde stays with me
>>40921143>> Mathilde stays with mehaha no.
>>40921143> Mathilde stays with meWe have friends and connections here we can find her a better match. Maybe mention Hugo and Elaine ?
>>40921143>other"Father. I am an up and coming lord in the holy lands in the good graces of her majesty. Would it not be better to wait abit longer. Already word is spreading of her unwed status and I am very sure we could find her a much better match."Don't respond rudely, talk it out.
>>40921027Wow, i woyld not like that one bit.>>40920959Bury it.
>>40921143> Mathilde stays with mehere she could soon be the wife of a count or duke anyhwere from here to rome, after i become count ascalon
>>40921143Very wellWe know nothing of hermann
>>40921174>>otherThis.Since this Hermann fellow is already here let get him and Mathilde to meet and see how this goes first.....
>>40921143> Mathilde stays with me''Her suitors will be of higher rank & status than Herman's brother''
>>40921143>>40921174this.talk it out like men.
>>40921143>> Mathilde stays with me
>>40921143> Mathilde stays with me"There's much fortune to be had in the Holy Land, it's a kingdom where a landless knight can get betrothed to a princess.""Also, pleeeeease take Hermann back with you, I will pay for his traveling."
>>40921143Guys it`s his doughter>Very wellNow its us that are stepping over the line
>>40921232fuck him dude's been over the line since we got here
>>40921232Nice try, Hermann.
>>40921232Of course he has ultimate authority here, but we like her company.
>>40921174thisno reason to go full nuclear yet. CHA first, bard knight.if he pushes, than we wield our veto.
Mathilde's still getting disciplined, right?
>>40921272>>40921276>>40921273I'm just saying if he is firm about it we have no choice but I guess we could try>>40921174before giving upI'm just compleately against outright denying him as this is compleately out of our responsability
>>40921343we are a foreign nobleman and she is our sister, he has no legal authority to demand custody, there is no real law among nations of this kind yet
>>40921358He is our father. He can arrange marriages as he pleases
"No," you said. Your father gave you a cool look. "I can find Mathilde a better match here with my status as Lord of Ramla. She could be the bride of a duke or count, even a prince. Suitors will be flocking from across the realm. She'll have better than an upjumped landed knight. And even if it weren't a matter of station, Hermann is unworthy of her. He is a coward and lecher. I suffer him only out of love for you. You might be content to see him paw your daughter, but I will not let him touch my sister."Your father's reaction is not immediate. He chews over your words. And when he speaks he chooses his words carefully."You should know that I don't give a hot damn about Jerusalem," he said, "Look at where you stand. In three generations all this land will be swept away by the Saracen, the Turk or some other ungodly race. And with it will go your progeny. Dead or screaming into slavery. Three generations or sooner. Germany is where our destiny lies. His lands are secure and rich. They are a sure thing. And I know Hermann and Hermann knows me. He knows what will happen if he abuses my girl.""Father-" you say, looking to negotiate."No!" he snapped, "'Father', you said it yourself. I have every legal right here. She is my daughter. I have made up my mind. This is an end to her foolish adventures.""Must it be marriage then? Surely you can defer with a simple betrothal. Give it a year or more before they are wed," you felt you might get on your knees to plead with him. "I promise you I can find her someone more suitable in that time."He looks you over. Slowly he nods."I will meet you half way. A betrothal. A year. And a chance. But do not push me on this. And she will still be punished. A strapping should cure her of girlish fantasies."You nod. That was fair.> very well> leave her punishment to me
>>40921365and we are an up & coming lord we can arrange one he can only hope to match in his wildest dreams
>>40921358It's not a matter of custody anon, He is her father and he does with her what he pleases, we can only try to convince him otherwise and if the archbishiop get's wind of it we can kiss his support goodbye
>>40921371>> very well"Thank you, father."
>>40921371very wellthat went better than expected
>>40921371>> leave her punishment to me lest you think I've grown to soft to her?
>>40921371>Very WellHe sayd to not push it so I think it's better not to.also, It is fair
>>40921371> leave her punishment to me>>40921377it really is a matter of custody. if we say no, who can he turn to? what authorities are there? any orders would have to come from either melisandre or hugh, and unless properly pressured they would be unlikely to demand you surrender her
>>40921371>> very wellbetter than we could had hoped, less than ideal
>>40921377>>40921415HF could you weigh in on this for us?
>>40921415>who can he turn to? what authorities are there?I'll step in and just say 'the Archbishop of Trier'. Who can then put pressure on Queen Melisende.Melisende loves Wilhelm, but the Archbishop is not to be rebuked over what is a mostly trivial family spat.
>>40921371> Very Well>In three generations all this land will be swept away by the Saracen, the Turk or some other ungodly race. And with it will go your progeny. Dead or screaming into slavery. Three generations or sooner.Well, maybe with THAT attitude.
>>40921371> very wellI'm awaaaaake now
You nod. "Thank you father," you said.He returned the nod. "I will see to Mathilde later, for now I must tend to my liege." And he disappeared into the archbishop's chamber.You stood in the hallway, considering the door that had just shut.Even as Lord, he still made you feel like a child.-End threadWil +1 leadMathilde + 5 lead, +1 intHugo +1 warQnA, maybe a second thread.
>>40921443>In three generations all this land will be swept away by the Saracen, the Turk or some other ungodly race. his analysis isn't actually wrong you know.
>>40921473Sorry that should be +5 lead for Hugo as well.
>>40921473well that suckedwhy
>>40921473Cheers HF. This quest really has that feeling of being powerless sometimes. And that I love.How did we do today? And what would have happened if we talked to daddy dearest at the start?
>>40921473>Hugo & Mathilde +5 lead what? why?thanks for running I'd love that second thread btw!
>>40921487>powerlessrailroadingi understood with the Roman princess you did it cause you didnt want the players to get distracted by (literally) byzantine court intrigue, whyd you do it this time?
>>40921473How much time has passed since the lordship, again? I'm loosing track
>>40921473> maybe a second thread.Oh yeah
>>40921481Any big blunders we made? Ya know maybe it should be a common thing at the end to say how we did? Maybe what we coulda done a bit better in handling certain things?
>>40921482I need a bit of a rest, and the thread is pretty deep into autosage. I have big stuff planned, so I don't want to risk it being cut in half or have the climax start and have to be resolved in a shorter new thread>>40921503Mathilde studying under Rosalie and Hugo studying under Solomon, remember they are both under 60 in their leadership.
>>40921506Great idea, we should invent the railroad! Our POWs can work on it.
>>40921512well I hope you can runperhaps tomorrow if not tonight? I'm hype for the big stuff!
>>40921508Nearly a year.>>40921487> And what would have happened if we talked to daddy dearest at the start?He would have been more appreciative of you taking the time to speak with him, showing a respect for your father. He would have said mostly the same stuff, but would have been more willing to hear you out on ending the marriage to Hermann.His desire to see her wed to Hermann comes from more a sense of being over-protective than overly ambitious. He wants her safe and nearby, not risking her life on the frontier of Christendom.
>>40921512>I have big stuff plannedgood enough. Thanks for running man, its always fun
>>40921546>His desire to see her wed to Hermann comes from more a sense of being over-protective than overly ambitious.so he doesn't know about ''that'' just yet?
>>40921511No huge blunders, but Mathilde is starting to get frustrated living with Wilhelm. Taking away her swordsmanship and forcing her to work is robbing her of the independence she wishes she could have. I'd say be careful about pushing her much more or she'll go full brat.>>40921563No one does except Mathilde, Hermann and Viyan.
>>40921572She will do as she is told.
>>40921584Rains of Ascalon when?
>>40921572Could you tell us about any of the rumors there are about Wilhelm ? i bet they range from Wilhelm is actually a muslim to Wilhelm and Solomon are actually lovers.
>>40921572She knows enough to hold her own in a fight right? Good enough for a female. The helping with Rosaline is to help smooth her husband to her whims. If need be wit her down and explain that to her. Could we possibly tell our father about Ascalon?
>>40921546we'll find out why mommy was crying right?>>40921592>Wilhelm and Solomon are actually loversI don't think any of us would actually mind that
>>40921595>Could we possibly tell our father about Ascalon?Anon that is why he and the bishop is here.
>>40921606I thought they came here because we invited them to see our land? As big as father was he never had much land if I remember correctly. Though if not now you know why I have the name sleepyanon.
>>40921628No we mentioned our land in the hope that it would impress him enough to take us serious.
>>40921592There are a lot of rumours circulating about Wilhelm.One is that he is a heartless mercenary taking advantage of the Queen and Count Hugh. Another is that he is Hugh's enforcer. Doing the dirty work Hugh can't be seen doing. Another is that Wilhelm had the former Lord of Ramla murdered. Some believe (though not many) that he is fucking the Queen, her sisters, Hugh's sister, his sister, anything female with a pulse. Some believe he is a pious man, others wonder if he is a devil in disguise. Some think he is preparing Jerusalem for an invasion by the Holy Roman Emperor.But he is a topic of conversation for many people. His rise to power is rather unusual and surrounded by unknown elements. He surrounds himself with strange people and toils on secret projects.He is a mystery to a lot of people, which makes him attractive and a little dangerous.
>>40921596>we'll find out why mommy was crying right?She has clinical depression.Of course no one knows what that is, so instead she is considered a weak sop of a woman.
>>40921595>She knows enough to hold her own in a fight right?She isn't going toe-to-toe with a knight any time soon, but she knows enough not to be cut to pieces immediately.
>>40921638Well they ain't that far wrong on wilhelm fucking anything female with a pulse! But dear god the lulz! I woke everyone up!
>>40921638And of the muslims?
>>40921638>that he is fucking the Queen, her sisters, Hugh's sister, his sister, anything female with a pulse.well......... they're not wrong>>40921647>She has clinical depression.oh..... that's not fun I know from experience
>>40921678No one thinks Wilhelm is a Muslim, mostly because he's been killing so many Muslims.
>>40921685I think he was asking what the various Muslims thinks of him.
>>40921685No i mean what the muslims think of him.
>>40921694Oh right. Those that know about him are only hearing mutters about a new lord in Jerusalem. Nothing major. Your fame doesn't stretch far beyond the borders of Outremer.Yet.
>>40921572Talking about Chiri, can we play a game of chess and talk a bit before fucking her next time we sleep?I suspect she is a fenomenal player because she said that she used to play with an old master and she always wathces us when she has the chance
>>40921587Nah, doesn't fit with the song. Maybe if we square off against Theodore one day.
>>40921717Aye. Some late night interaction with Chiri beside bedplay would be appreciated. Just feel like we havnt been able to interact with many of our friends due to how busy we have been and the limited actions we can take before we make some time jumps. I know that is to make sure the quest doesnt grind to a halt.Chiri is gonna love the fact there are two Wilhelms now
Hey, has the printing press been invented yet?
>>40921746Only in Song China. So no.>>40921717Sure.
>>40921735oy! Chiri is Wilhelms
>>40921747After this, we ought to get some engineers cracking on that. People fucking LOVE bibles!
>>40921764Wilhelm wouldnt even know where to begin. We have to wait till the mongols comes so knowledge gets transfered to and from Eruope-Asia
>>40921753>Crusader Quest Part 3:MAD WIL - SILKY ROAD
>>40921779Well, stamps exist, and paper can be stamped.
>>40921735Nah man, sharing a woman with father is weird as hell.
>>40921792Doubt Wilhelm even care about such things. He has other things to worry about.Is it you that wanted those airships anon ?
>>40921804But it'll just be like my japanese highly incestual MMF hentais!
>>40921804We already fell emasculated by father as it is. I hope Chiri is smart enough to notice that it would hit him pretty hard if she did that to him
>>40921808We'd call it the Dandylion.
>>40921804it is but chiri is sleeping around anyways.and not just with men.
>>40921845yeah but it's one thing to lend her to your Seneschal, its another to let your father fuck your Slavifu
>>40921851Yeah, it's like, we don't fuck Hugo's Mom, he doesn't fuck Chihiro.
>>40921851was it the constable or the previous lord of ramla that she also slept with?
>>40921851what this anon said
>>40921869previous lord but hey man THAT SAVED OUR FRIGGIN LIFE YA KNOW!
>>40921869Lord Baldwin of Ramla yes. That was how she found out he was plotting against Wilhelm and Hugh.She said she didnt like the way he was constantly looking at him so she let him "find" her in the kitchen and let him take her to his room where she found the message.
>>40921869Previous Lord,that action actualy saved our life so I think her motivation was to do a service to Wil after all
She would let her know that if she converted to Christianity we could entrust her with more responsibilities and even take her as our lover.Like real lover instead of just concubine.
>>40921892don't really see a diference there anon,she's our lover already
>>40921869The previous lord.Man, having to be pro-active and cut-throat is really stressing. Like, we could bond with our family, or we could gather more men to our cause.Even as Hugo, we missed out on that last bit with the shield because Squires are walking-talking alarm clocks.This is akin to walking around an art museum while ensuring no liquid spills from the spoon you're carrying around.
>>40921910Well she wouldnt be a slave for one thing and she would carry a bit more authority
>>40921892she already knows thatshe'll refuse because that's likely the very last thing she has to her that is left of Viyan
>>40921916We should send Hugo to Jaffa to try and recruit Malik before se searches service with the egiptiansThat way he can have a bit more development with Sabeen and we can focus on getting the materials to build those damn towers
>>40921927>>40921930This man, I can only hope to convince you anons to treat her right that someday she will introduce Viyan to us
>>40921927to add to >>40921930her being a slave is the only thing keeping her safe from becoming a slave (again) & out of a life of misery and rape
>>40921956Yeah. But as a christian she would actually have rights.
>>40921964She made it very clear that she would not change her beliefs in exchange for nothing,I admire that in her.
Maybe one day she can adopt Hugo and Matty's attic demigod(s).
>>40921964again read fucking >>40921930 unless you want to half drown her in holy water it's not happening
>>40921980Oh by all means so do i. Just want her to understand she actually has options.I would love to bring her to Jerusalem to scheme
>>40921981>Implying she's not the royal nannyare we having a second thread or not? I'm unclear on HF's decision>>40921989>wanting a god tier spymasterit's like you want to have an ''unfortunate'' accident
>>40922001Think he is going to take a nap then return
>>40921931I can only hope we do it before he goes to Ascalon, I can even hear HF ploting a confrontation between us if we don't act quickly
>>40922001>are we having a second thread or not? I'm unclear on HF's decisionUnfortunately I'm pretty tired and don't want to be up too late tonight. I'll run again either tomorrow or the day after at the same time as today.Thanks for playing folks.
>>40922019Thanks for running!!
>>40922019please let us know in advance, this quest can really fuck with my sleep schedule
>>40922019Alright. Thanks for running.
>>40922035I'll try. It can really fuck with mine too.
>>40922019damn thanks for running, hope you run tomorrow as I'll be rather engaged on Thursday.
We need more fanart featuring memorable sexytimes.
>>40922083Maybe commission it?
>>40922019Damn but oh well.Thanks for running HF.>>40922018We don't even need to say too much in the letter to them.Just an invitation to come by one last time if they're leaving for parts unknown. That should be enough and if they are really headed for ascalon, we might then choose to bring it up in confidence with Malik and Sabeen.
>>40922093we had a drawfag around the Jerusalem but they appear to have fucked off or some stuff.>>40922095>Just an invitation to come by one last time if they're leaving for parts unknown.I'd be up for that though if they are really set on it I doubt they'd be much we could do.
>>40922095HF already hinted that we may face them so I rather so it in the near future, Hell we can get a lot of other things while we are there too(Materials, squire for Solomon, Assistent for Rose, Falcon for Chiri, delicious brown ass for Hugo)
>>40922136Once the Bishop leaves we escort him to Jaffa and stay there intill we get what we are after ?
>>40922151Isn't he heading to Jerusalem after this though?
>>40922169when we were coming to Ramla I think we had to pass trough Jaffa
>>40922184That was when we were coming from Sidon, Jaffa's north of here, and Jerusalem is to the East, and Iovetta is the sun
>>40922222Well we could send Hugo there with someone if we can't go ourselfs but buyng Materials and hiring people may be over his capabilities
>>40922245Maybe one our knights? Orlando could handle the materials and Hugo could talk to Malik.
>>40922245We should send Orlando with him!
>>40922273>>40922274this works I suppose Hugo should take maggie so he can learn to fug properly
>>40922274>>40922273Orlando will be usefull!!!!! I can hardly believe it!
>>40922307 your husbando is slightly less a shit now
>>40922292What do you THINK he's been doing?Btw, HF, is there a chance you could write that stable scene from Matty's POV?
>>40922353 trying to bard?I just want more young lovers shit
>>40922353Hugo has been tapping that potato ass non stop.I really want to see hugo spend more time with Sabeen, that relationship is perfect, it has everything. Its compleatelt forbiden, he respects her as a worrior and sister in arms and wants to be reconized as a man something he is not even worried about with anyone else but herBanging her will be a comming of age ritual of sorts
>>40922369>Hugo being restrained as Matty and her co-conspirators Viyan and Maggie all gather round to femdom himI want it
>>40922510>Wanting mental traumapls no Maggie & Hugo learn the joy of brutally rough sex when?
>>40922520I just hope Iovetta will accept us despite all the women we sleep with. Preferable that she also accepts all the women we sleep with as bed mates.
>>40922593 she better damn well except Chiri oh dear god the lewd! lovetta is going to corrupted worse than ever
>>40922593I think she already accepted chiri, we were fucking her every night while we were traveling with her and she didn`t mindShe also alegedly is fapping to a letter of us fuckinh another womanAnd that letter where she says she will be our whore pretty much settles it
>>40922772big difference from being a 14 year old in love & a lords wife with expectations of honour
