    in the previous session Durian finally made it to the castle, we went out on a hunting expedition with Calum, Calum gets grievously injured, and is hanging on for dear life, and has been stark raving mad ever since.

    and Durian shows us impeccable timing and asking us for edyth's hand in marriage as we find out all of this

    You look at him, through red eyes, and mutter "Very Well"

    he looks at you with a wierd expression on his face then claps his hands together and says "Excellent! i will await the coming wedding day with abated breath!"

    so now... we have to deal with a wedding on top of Calum's wounds, Frey's looking at you like a pack of vicious animals, and a large bandit infestation

    Have a cot moved to Calum's chambers so that Herla can stay by his side day and night until he pulls through.

    Also, instruct the maester to write down Calum's ravings. Our son is an intellectual, he might find it interesting to review them later.

    Put Karyn (left out of the opening household list for some reason) in charge of wedding arrangements, and let Durian know we'd be honored to provide the food and entertainment for the ceremony, but wouldn't dream of serving anything less than the finest Dornish red, which is more his department to supply.

    Bertrand is supposed to be handling the bandits, so let's give him a month or two and see how that goes.

    Regarding the Freys... just keep smiling and wait for them to make a move. If he tries anything, Winterfell will be on our side.

    Archers. Definitely archers.
    We have no need of conquest, and our primary defensive needs will be best served by ranged support.

    I don't think there was any indication that Durian had a previous wife.
    Edyth had a previous husband, but as far as anyone knows that was a fishing accident.

    a week passes and construction is coming along nicely on the market, you've already got a very interested man in setting up a trade route between here and white harbour for your woods and iron.

    your new recruits are shaping up nicely, the clanging of training weapons and the barking of Kelor and his Sergeants fill the courtyard with the sound of activity, and Herla has reported that Calum has a good chance of living if he fights off this dementia.

    the plans for the weddings are going somewhat smoothly Durian wants a southron wedding but your wife is wanting a Northern wedding and you can constantly hear them arguing about it.

    You walk up to the rookery, to get away from the noise and as you look out over your small fiefdom a raven flies in with a note, quorks at you in gretting and goes to eat some grain left out by Herla. you retrieve the note and it inviting you to a marriage between Criin's Eldest Daughter and a Frey Boy, the odd thing is, it was sent by Ned...

    rolled 79 = 79

    We can take some pride that our wife wants a Northern wedding rather than an Ironborn wedding.
    Those are kind of shitty, IIRC.

    Let's get a road mapped out so that we can send people to and from White Harbor with ease. This market is going to make us rich.
    However, I would advise mapping the road to avoid any contact with Criin territory. Make sure the lords of the land it passes through are friendly or neutral to us.

    Speaking of Criin, I say we attend the wedding. Walder Frey is famously douchey and crass, but it's his own (grand?)son's wedding. Even Lord Frey wouldn't *snerk*
    Couldn't get through that one with a straight face.
    Still, we should be safe enough. Let's go to the wedding.

    Oh, on weddings, we need to stay far away from the wedding planning process. One wrong word and Durian/Karyn/both will hate us forever.

    You decide to attend the wedding, you bring along Kelor and a small guard of five of your toughest men to protect the wedding gift of 50 dragons.

    upon cresting a small hill you see Criin castle its outlying village, its a small motte and bailey, and the town around it looks like its seen better days, spurring on your horses you reach the motte before sunfall.

    as you walk in you are greeted by icy stares by the bride to be and the groom. As you approach to present your gift the bride spits at you, which causes gasps of astonishment from other attending lords, her husband quickly excuses his wife to be as having too much to drink and still have problems about her father being on the wall. he accepts the gift but with covered hostility.

    sensing you're not welcomed from them you find a nearby lord to the south of you, he introduces himself as Lord Werth of Spur Castle you find out that he too has had problems with Criin, and over the course of the feast you two talk about affairs in both of your kingdoms and have a jovial time, despite getting drunken glares from the bride, afterwards you retire for the night

    day comes and you wake with a throbbing headache, and as you start to ride out you see several hung roosters hung from the gate...

    We are Lord Skylar of Strongcock, redeemer of our House.

    Our wife is Karyn of Greyjoy, and our marriage kept us out of the fighting during Balon's Rebellion. Ned had a grudge against our father for that, but we've mended bridges somewhat.

    Our eldest son, Ian, has gone to Dorne to seek business opportunities. While his silver tongue worked on arranging shipments of produce, he found Lord Durian Calik, who has come north to marry:

    Edyth, our eldest daughter. Her first husband died in a fishing accident, though some suspect foul play. She's beautiful, but cold.

    Calum is the middle child, and he's a scholar with a curious mind. He lost his legs in a hunting accident last week, and has become delirious/prophetic while fighting the infection.

    Our youngest son Zachary has gone to the Eyrie to squire under the Arryns, as a favor from Lord Stark. We haven't heard from him recently.

    Our youngest daughter is Dina, who, though not a tomboy, doesn't exactly excel at the womanly arts. Her skills and talents have yet to come to light.

    A ranger named Bertrand, a former bandit, is charged with cleaning up the woods on our land.

    His brother, Kelor, is our castellan and watch commander. He was wounded during the Cliin attack, but remains loyal.

    Maester Herla has a library and a nice singing voice.

    You run into Werth as you start travelling home, he seems happy to see you he beckons you over and you two start conversing, he has four children the eldest is 15, then 12, 8, and finally 5

    As you near closer to The Roost you ask him if he ould like to come to the remarrying of your eldest daughter, which he happily agrees to, you leave him with a firm handshake and with a possible new ally

    As you return home Bertrand catches you and he informs you that another gang of bandit has been tracked down and killed, this one numbered 15 but these men were well supplied most had steel weapons and had a bag of stags worth 3 dragons, thats a bit much for a common bandit to be carrying around...

    obviously the method would have to be such that it doesnt come back to bite us in the arse. and anyway, we don't actually know if that frey was involved, im just saying we should keep that possibility in mind, especially because of his hostility. i dont buy it that he was hostile just because of his wife.

    Well supplied, probably by the Criins.
    Whatever. Unless we find solid evidence, all we can really do is make sure that Bertrand can handle them.
    Tell him he may take whatever he feels he needs from their resources and materiel, and that he should see about spending any money he takes off of them on improving his men. Give him a wagon and a couple of horses to make a quick trip to White Harbor after the wedding so he can pick up anything he needs.

    I love Karyn, I really do. She is best wife.
    Ask her to give us a quick rundown on the plans. Food, entertainment, wine, etc. Just to make sure she didn't forget anything or mix up customs.
    Judging by the backstory, I'm assuming our father wasn't the best host. We should get a new House marriage cloak weaved up before the wedding.

    Maester Herla's quote:

    "well milord" Maester Herla starts, "a good starting market would cost us close to 300 dragons, and a good forge would cost us about 200, and probably and another 100 for us to bring a blacksmith here." he clears his throat "now for strengthening the wall unless we find a good source of Granite, or a strong stone nearby it'll cost around 2000 dragons to bring the stone here and then maybe another 100 for labor, watch towers, using our wood we have now would be cheaper around 100 per tower. Surveying would only cost us 50 for a good skilled crew to come from White Harbor and if we want a really extravagent meeting for Durian i've calculated it at around 150."

    So we should be able to build a Forge, after this wedding is over.

    At hearing his favorite song being played, Balon's Scowl worsens even more and he storms out of the building much to everyone's amazement, and your wife rushes out to fetch him.

    The night drags on and Balon returns but your wife looks very worried about him, finally its time for the ceremony, as Durian takes hold of Edyth's hand everyone goes quiet and they exhange their vows and soon walk up the staircase to consummate their marriage.
    >> Lone Maester !/TFroSZvQA 10/07/11(Fri)00:52 No.16545444

    (soooooo lucky)

    your wife disappears momentarily after the vows, and comes back with a pitcher and pours balon a cup, which he quaffs down, after which seems like an eternity he slowly starts to doze off, and finally falls asleep drunk and sound as a baby, before being dragged off by his retainers

    You slowly stumble up the stairs up to your bedroom half carrying half falling on your wife, and finally falling on your bed you grab your wife and go for another "romp"

    day breaks and you stir from bed, breaking your wifes grasp around you and get dressed, you walk outside into the blaring sunlight and you see most of your visitors are already leaving, you see Werth in your courtyard and you go over to start smalltalking with him

    "your wife was lucky, i was sitting next to Balon and his anger was palpable, if she didn't intervene at the right time, there would've been bloodshed and another civil war." he states

    "yeah..i could sense it from my seat" you reply,

    "i was looking around on my way up here, and we don't have any trees or lumber sources this good on my lands," he starts "mayhaps we could enter a trade agreement?"

    After seeing everyone off, you go inside and slouch in your chair and watch your people clean up when Herla approaches.

    "Sir, looking though the paper work, we have enough money to strengthen our position and make it more prosperous." he hands you a piece of paper "I suggest we start surveying the land for more source of income then just our iron and lumber, but it'll cost us 100 dragons for a good team from White Harbor,"

    Still. There are always people looking to raise archers and spearmen against raider bands or bandits. It never hurts to have a supply of well crafted bows for hunters to buy neither. I say we set about a couple craftsmen to stock our armory with bows a plenty.

    Hang on. I've done medieval economics.

    650 people is barely enough to ensure genetic diversity with a rigorous tradition of outbreeding.

    We are, quite frankly, fucked. At 650 people we may as well just burn ourselves alive in Autumn.

    I can only suggest permanently granting lands at a bearing rate, and granting additional lands on the basis of owned oxen, dropping the tax rate to zero, and clearing out those "deserts" or forests as moderns would call them.

    650 will barely support a single mounted warrior, non-Knight. 650 is enough to support a very very very small manor.

    Add to this the fact that we're running 150 military individuals, that means we've got a non-productive ratio of at least 200:650, or 1:3, this isn't good at all.

    Settlement, freedom from feodal dues, land grants in perpetuity. (Sort them out three generations from now through usury during Winter.)

    you catch Bertrand just as he is leaving, and tell him to bring back a surveyor team, and hand him 100 dragons.

    and then go find the best bowyers your people have and hire them on to start making as many bows as they can thats well crafted.

    on your way back to the castle you see Durian's caravan in the midst of packing up, you walk over to it and Durian sees you he waves and runs over.

    "Sorry, but me and Edyth must be on our way, my Castle has been without its Lord for too long, and i must introduce my Lady to her new people" he extends his hand and you grasp it "Remember, now that were family you can call upon me and my men to help with any family matters you have, and i suppose you will hold me to the same deal?"

    You nod your head, "And remember," you start " we have a trade agreement as well, our lumber, and iron, for your southern spices, foods, and goods?"

    he laughs "of course i remember, it will make us both very rich!" and with that he hugs you and goes back to his wife and they set off

    Edyth is now married to Durian of house Calik

    Durian has:

    Trading fleet of 4 frieghters and two Ballista Ship Escorts

    150 Trained Archer
    50 Heavy Calvary
