Perils at Kings Landing V (The Tourney Part Three and the Finale)
(Ragnar and William must still be treated as semi-npc because their players could not always participate).
This is the last part of the big adventure which cost us in the end almost as much time than all adventures we played before. Therefore I want to thank the game master for his work...
The new day should bring the fourth and fifth round of the tourney and the riding contest.
Paedrig had to fight against Ser Ulwyck Uller who had challenged him the day before. It was a quick fight – Ser Uller hit Paedrig with nearly deadly force, sending him to the ground with four injuries. While Paedrig was lying in his blood, Ser Uller bragged about his victory and how he had put the bastard to the right place. Of course he wanted no ransom but Paedrigs armour and horse (and by this stripping him of the attributes of a knight). Paedrig must be carried away. Eric and later William treated his wounds professionally, although Eric was not very happy because he had set some money on Paedrig. But he was able to convince Ser Uller that he would take the armour but not the horse (Paedrig wanted to keep the horse because it was from Krayenhorn, the liege of his family). Concerning the armour Paedrig did have already a new in the making. Erics help for Paedrig was a little bit…dimmed by the fact that Paedrig must pay the ransom for his horse on his own, while Lord Gard had given the party some gold dragons for such situations. But Paedrig was not in the position or mood to argue.
Ser Naton Lugus and Ser Alesander Gargalen did also not pass the fourth round of the tourney and were both unhorsed.
Because of Paedrigs injuries only Ragnar could participate in the riding contest – and he did it very well. He got in the last round and made quite an impression with his abilities and the qualities of the Krayenhorn horses. But in the end some others were even better…
During the fifth round, Ser Ulwyck Uller faced Ser Jaime Lannister. Ser Uller did not have any chance against the Kingslayer. When Paedrig heard about this, he was quite disappointed that he had missed it. Eric was also happy because he gets some of his lost money back (he had set his coins on Ser Jaime).
In the evening Eric visited Ser Langley Wood (groom of Marita Lugus) and tried to get some information out of him. The ailing knight (he had got a wound in the tourney) was no match for Eric’s social skills but could tell nothing substantial. The only interesting were rumours that Orten Lugus might be the bastard son of Lord Tywin Lannister.
Later Eric tried again to get some information about the companion Lidda (Ser Wyl was willing to pay for bribing the owner of the Green Tree/ Jade Spring). This time Eric was successful and get the information that indeed Orten Lugus had ‘sold out’ Lidda and brought her to a house somewhere near Flea Bottom. Orten seemed very interested in the story how Lidda get to the Jade Spring – but the inn/brothel owner remained a little bit vague about this.
While Ser Wyl was uncertain what to do, Paedrig (tired of diplomacy) urged for a direct approach – but Eric did not agree because he did not want to stir any trouble. Anyway it was too late to do something this day.
The next morning Eric sent two sellswords to the house where Lidda might be. The mercenaries should do a little bit reconnaissance.
In the meantime Ragnar, Eric (and even Paedrig who was healing fast) visited the tourney ground and watched the sixth and seventh (fore last) round of the tourney. In the seventh round it was Ser Barristan Selmy against Sandor Clegane and Ser Loras against the Kingslayer. Only Barristan Selmy and Ser Loras Tyrell get through – they should fight tomorrow against each other.
Eric participated in the finale of the shooting contest but failed clearly.
In the evening the party get a surprising visit by Maester Ferris of house Dannett. He wanted to thank for the help of Maester Bowen (who had rescued Adhams live and than revealed his hiring by house Blyth) and give Paedrig the ‘ransom’ for the victory against Adham Dannett. Paedrig refused to take the money but his noble (but not selfless – he wanted that Adham stay in his dept) gesture was a little bit ruined by Eric Blyth who quickly claimed some of the money because he had paid Maester Bowen.
(Little by little Eric’s Greediness began to erode Paedrig’s esteem for him).
Eric revealed the complete intrigue (or at least the parts he know/assume) for the master and was able to convince him although it was still a mystery why house Lugus might have started such an intrigue. The Dannett Maester mostly accepted Eric’s convincing speculations but did not want to tell Adham the whole story at the moment. The young man was still weak…
When the two sellswords returned they could only tell that the house at Flea Bottom was guarded. The party decided to make a quick (and armed) visit next day.
This was the eleventh day in Kings Landing – and the last day of the tournament. In the morning Ser Barristan Selmy and Ser Loras Tyrell (the two finalists) faced each other. While most of the ladies (and many of the men) cheered for the Knight of the Flowers, Paedrigs sympathies went with the Commander of the Kingsguard.
Both knights broke three lances against each other – each hit accurate and strong enough to unhorse or perhaps even kill a normal opponent. In the end the Commander of the Kingsguard went down – the Knight of the Flowers was the winner.
After this spectacle Eric, Tygor Wyl, Paedrig and William thought it might be time to visit Lidda’s hiding. Two sellswords escorted the party. After politely knocking at the door (and getting no reaction) Paedrig and Tygor broke down the door and charged in.
However they came to late – the house was empty. It looked like the inhabitants had left in hast. Perhaps the guards had noticed our ‘urban scouts’ the last day (the two sellswords certainly were not very sophisticated spies).
The whole scenario did not look like Lidda was held as a prisoner – more like a guest.
When the frustrated young men searched the house they found costly female clothing’s (even good enough for the court and certainly not so revealing like Lidda’s ‘working dresses’). And Paedrig found a handkerchief with faded embroidery that could be the arms of house Dannett.
Remembering the stature, age and hair colour of Lidda the party now came to the conclusion that ‘Lidda’ might be the lost Iris Dannett, sister of Adham Dannett. Now the whole thing sound logical: if Orten Dannett gets (and married) Iris Dannett whiles her brother (and only male heir of his father) died by the ‘treacherous hands of house Blyth’…
How Iris got in the brothel was still a mystery but given the fact that she did not like her new job, it was certainly not consensual.
But anyway ‘Lidda’/ Iris had again vanished without a real trace.
The party asked around but did not find any hints for the moment – and some of them want still to participate in the Mêlée. The time was running thin so the party returned to the jousting ground where the other members of the Mêlée group waited.
The fight began and immediately Paedrig went for Ullwyk Uller to get revenge for his lost in the jousting. But again Ser Uller was too good for him and Paedrig was beaten a second time (and get a new injury - just after the other had healed). Failing a second time was a heavy blow for young fighter although Ser Uller did not have much time to celebrate his victory when he faced Ragnars battleaxe. The group fight well but not good enough – in the end the victory went to the red priest with his flaming sword.
Again Eric did not want to spend the money Gard had given him so Ragnar and Paedrig must pay their ransom (5 gold dragons) on their own.
Later the day the party again meet with the Dannett Maester and informed him about the speculations concerning ‘Lidda’ and Ortens plans with her. The Maester was shocked and did have some problems to accept (or believe) such a complicated scenario and elaborated plan against the two houses. However he now remembered that Adham had get an anonymous gift (some wine) – perhaps he was poisoned this way. This seemed logical although not very imaginative (Eric also gets an anonymous gift – the dagger with the poison).
With the Mêlée over only one festivity remained – a great meal and victory celebration at the Red Keep.
The whole group showed up. The scenario was even more costly and luxurious than the first fest. Although they did their best to hide their emotions, Orten Lugus (of course the whole Lugus group was also apparent) might notice Ragnars and Paedrigs (and Tygor Wyl’s) unfriendly looks. Eric was able to conceal his emotions perfectly.
Of course there were many much more prominent guests than the party or house Lugus. The royal family, the Knight of the Flowers, the kingsguard (Ser Jaime Lannister was accompanied by Tyrion) etc. Paedrig actually had the guts to talk briefly with the Kingslayer (although he is normally more something like a targaryan loyalist). The legendary/ infamous member of the kingsguard was friendlier than Paedrig expected.
While Eric and his son mostly went for the food (and wine), Paedrig (although still with a banded injury) also participated in the dancing. Eric gets home very late and very drunken.
The next morning the Green Tree Inn gets a surprising visit by Ser Jacelyn ‘Ironhand’ Bywater, a high officer of the Goldcloaks. During the night Ser Langley Wood (groom of Marita Lugus) and one of his servants has been killed. Ser Bywater informed and perhaps interrogated Ser Wood’s bride and than wanted a conversation with the Blyth party – Marita Lugus had told him something about trouble between the Blyth’s and her groom (which was certainly untrue – Langley Wood was always too unimportant for the party).
Eric and Paedrig did their best to refute Maritas lies and instead mentioned the rumours about her former husbands, the bad reputation of her family and their impression that the relation between Marita and Langley was not the best (both seemed not happy with each other; Langley showed more interest for the companions of the Jade Spring while Marita and a bravosii guest changed meaningful views etc.). Of course this all was mostly gossip. In the end Ser Bywater did not have anything substantial against house Blyth and left – leaving Paedrig and Eric behind wondering if the death of Ser Langley Wood could have anything to do with the intrigue against house Blyth or if Marita Lugus was simply stepping up her routine in killing her would-to-be husband even before marriage.
But such speculations did not hinder the group to try again their search for ‘Lidda’/ Iris Dannett. Following a suggestion by William the party visited the city gates, asking the guards if any person who fits the description of Iris had passed by. This costs some time and money but in the end the party got the information that the Lugus gang and a beautiful young woman with blond hair and the colours of house Dannett had left the Kings Gate.
Fearing that the Lugus want to get away with their booty the party (and especially Paedrig I must confess) overreacted a little bit. While Paedrig galloped back to the Green Tree Inn, mobilizing Ser Tygor Wyl, Ser Lanseer and the Blyth sellswords for the hunt after the Lugus, Eric rushed to the Dannetts (which stayed at the tourney ground outside Kings Landing) for additional forces.
He was quiet surprised (as was Paedrig when his armoured and armed band arrived later) to find Ruben Piper standing in front of the Dannett pavilion tent, demanding loudly to be let in and to see his would-to-be bride Iris. Eric calmed the waves a little bit and was able to send Ruben Piper away for the moment.
As the party now discovered Orten Lugus had brought the ‘lost’ sister of Adham Dannett back, playing the knight in shining armour who had rescued sweet Iris out of this pit of sin after he recognized her noble heritage. Orten also claimed that he had solved the whole mystery behind the killing of the Dannett peasants, the intrigue against house Blyth and Dannett, the poisoning of Adham etc.
In his story (‘proved’ by some documents he had in his possession) it was all the Fox Knight and his sinister followers the ‘fox cubs’. Orten Lugus had discovered this on his own and he and his family had killed the man who actually had poisoned Adham. The description of this ‘poisoner’ fits with the man who had brought the dubious dagger to the Green Tree Inn and acted as messenger for the Fox Knight.
Ortens words did make some impression – but not for house Blyth who only could see Orten Lugus tilting out traces which could lead to him. But to know it and to proof it was a different thing…
Also the party must hear that not only Ruben Piper was claiming Iris Dannett (while she refused to see him and stated that she would rather die or kill him instead of marrying him), but also Orten Lugus had asked for her hand and Iris seemed to be very fond of her saviour.
At least for Paedrig this was ridiculous (for Eric too although he was not so vehement). If Orten would get Iris (given the fact that neither her father nor her brother were in good health) this could mean that in some month house Blyth could have Orten Lugus ruling the Dannett land.
To make the matters even more complicated Tygor Wyl also wanted to marry Iris Dannett while Paedrig and Eric silently speculated if a marriage between Lord Gard Blyth and Iris Dannett might be a good idea – ending forever the dammed old feud…
But given the fact that Gard was not here, still wanted to marry a Aran girl and might not be so happy with a bride with such…’rich experience in the art of love making’ they did not know how to act – beside to hinder any Dannett-Lugus marriage.
Eric sent a raven to Dragonport reporting the last events but the party did know that time might run thin before they could get clear instructions. Soon the Dannett group might get home. Of course the party could (and wanted) to accompany them on their way home (to improve the disposition of Adham and to hinder Orten if he plans another attack or intrigue) – but this would mean also no clear instruction from the home front for the next weeks if the raven with Gards answer arrived Kings Landing not in time. And what would be if Iris Dannett sneaked out of the tent (or simply marched out – her still weak brother was wax in her hands) and decided to marry Orten Lugus?
There was some argue between Eric and Paedrig what they should do in the meanwhile and concerning the potential grooms-to-be (Paedrig perhaps overstepped his position verbally a little bit).
Eric seemed to favour the idea to help Ruben Piper – he speculated that a rich merchantman could bring the most profit for him (either money or trading agreements). For Paerig such thinking was a little bit cheap. He also did not follow Erics fears how Ruben Piper might sabotage the wealth of Dannet and Blyth if he does not get his will (and his young bride). For Paedrig (a bastard but a noble born one and with more pride than it might be good) Ruben Piper was simply a fat overambitious money bag of low heritage. A merchantman that would never let his pride goes over his profit. Piper might have accepted Iris as a compensation for his credits but he certainly would not start a trade war against house Dannett AND Blyth. If he overstepped the boundaries of his social position…
Also the idea to sell a woman to a man she really hate (right after she was rescued out of a brothel) was of no appeal for Paedrig.
And he still had the idea that by helping his friend Tygor Wyl (if the idea with Iris/Gard might not work) he could get a sponsor and his knighthood. He had an open word with Tygor Wyl, stating out that he would support him if Gard give no contradicting orders – but to get Erics support Tygor Wyl should perhaps think about more…substantial means. Ser Wyl seemed to be willing to spend some money but also showed his disdain for such a haggling (Paedrig silently but obviously agreed). Paedrig also tried to help Tygor Wyl in his attempt to increasing Iris Dannetts disposition. But both men were no match for Iris who was able to convince them that they should help her in search for her kidnappers who had sold her to the Jade Spring - she wanted revenge. It costs some money and threats to get information out of the owner of the Jade Spring/ Green Tree (Iris did not want a trial or involvement of the goldcloaks because this would be very embarrassing for her and her family). It’s seemed that the gang of Dennys ‘the lame’ was guilty for the kidnapping. They had captured Iris short after she left home and raped the young woman. When they noticed her high heritage they almost panicked but still wanted to get some money. They were too afraid to ask the Dannett’s for ransom so they sold her away without telling her name. Iris kept her identify hidden because she was ashamed (and perhaps thought that no one would believe her anyway). Dennys band operate north of the Twins so any measures against him must wait for the moment.
Beside these activities and their little disagreement both Eric and Paedrig were united in sabotaging Orten Lugus marriage plans. Even Paedrig who favoured the idea that Iris at least did not hate her future groom did not want that she might choose Orten.
Eric started a psyop campaign to convince Adham AND Iris that the motives and aims of Orten might be dubious and that he (and not the Fox Knight or other deceased men) were behind the intrigue. The problem was he did not have any real evidences while Orten did have some (‘letters’ of the Fox Knight). But Eric did have his rhetoric skills and he was at least able to spread some doubts.
But his words also reached the Lugus party - and the Lugus brother reacted immediately and challenged Eric for a duel of honour because of his ‘ridiculous and infamous accusations’. Of course neither Orten nor Eric would fight – this should be the duty of Naton Lugus and Paedrig Rivers.
In the end, after all the haggling and intriguing and backstabbing it finally comes to this point (at least in Paedrig’s view): two armoured men facing each other with blades in their hands…
Paedrig stand up early and visited the Great Sept, praying for his victory. After losing against Ser Uller two times he was more than a little bit nervous so he asked Ser Tygor Wyl for a favour. Paedrig wanted to borough the valyrian sword ‘Scorpion’ for the fight. After all Paedrig had won the fight for the sword – certainly a good omen. And of course such a weapon would heighten his chances. Ser Tygor Wyl agreed (beside the fact that Paedrig had get the sword for him he was also very interested that the brother of Orten Lugus, his rival for Iris Dannett, did not win).
On the way to the tourney ground where the duel should be Paedrig was accompanied by Ser Tygor Wyl and Ser Landseer. The old knight did his best to tell the young man about the specific rules and customs of duels, the best fighting manoeuvres etc. (the old knight acted a little bit patronizing but in good will). Of course the other members of the Blyth party were also apparent.
At the tourney ground the party met the whole Lugus gang (minus Marita Lugis and one of her cousins who was serious wounded in the tourney). Also apparent were the Dannetts (Adham still looked very ill and Iris had concealed her face) and Alesander and Alys Gargalen. A dornish Septon should watch over the whole event.
Although he was not certain about his chances Paedrig asked Eric if he did have specific instructions how he should deal with Naton Lugus. Eric was a little bit uncertain but decided that it might be unwise to kill Naton Lugus. Paedrig silently disagreed in this matter but accepted the order. Eric tried to start a polite conversation with Lady Lugus (the mother of Naton, Orten and Marita) but only earned cold stares and frosty answers. Obviously it was not the time for this.
Before the fight should began, Orten Lugus once again lay out his case and pictured himself as an honourable man who was accused wrongly by house Blyth. He was very convincing and even Eric (a quiet able rhetoric) could not counter his words effectively. But then again – at this place and this time words did not mean very much. At least words which were spoken before the fight.
Both fighters listened to the words of the Septon who claimed that only right and truce will win in this fight (some people in the audience might disagree silently) and than ordered the fight to begin. Paedrig whispered ‘Anya’ (the name of his secret love) and charged.
Although Naton Lugus was able to block Paedrigs first attack and hit him some times, Paedrigs new armour protected him well and the younger and more agile man clearly dominated the fight. Naton Lugus gets a nasty wound at the right knee and when he tried to cover his side with his shield, the valyrian sword hit him at the left shoulder piercing through the plate armour with ease and almost cutting of Natons arm. The heir of house Lugus went down bleeding (in stats - he get maimed). Paedrig was tempted to finish him once and for all but followed his order, shouting “The gods have decided!” and stepping away from the body of his opponent.
Naturally the Lugus family rushed towards their relative. When they passed Eric he noticed something disturbing: for a moment Orten Lugus face was a mask of anger and hate – but at the same time there was also a cold malicious joy…
However after congratulating Paedrig (who was also praised by his relatives and friends) Eric wastes no time in ensuring that the Dannetts understood the significance of the fight. While Adham Dannett was quiet impressed his sister (after her ‘adventures’ perhaps a little bit sceptic about the might and power of the Seven) was a little bit more cautious. But certainly the position of house Lugus was weakened. And Ser Tygor Wyl declared that Paedrig Rivers had shown the abilities and the manners of a true knight and that it would be an honour if he could be the man who knighted him – an offer Paedrig of course accepted.
When the party returned to the Green Tree Inn they must noticed that the wounded Ser Gennady Shanin had used the time to flee – obviously he did not wanted to face Tygor Wyls questions about the role he had played in the treachery that had cost Tygor’s father his live and family sword.
Little time later the party also get a visit by Ser Jacelyn Bywater who told them that there was a new situation in Bywaters investigation concerning Ser Langley Wood’s death. Following Paedrig’s and Eric’s hints Bywater had took a closer look at the bravosii guest at the Green Tree Inn. Short after this the Bravosii vanished – together with Marita Lugus and leaving behind some smuggling goods and poisons. While the Lugus family claimed that the Bravosii might have kidnapped poor Marita Lugus neither Ser Bywater nor the party really believed this story. However the two suspects were gone. But given the fact that the party seemed to have set Bywater on the right track he wanted to give them some money for the goods that the probable killer of Ser Langley Wood had left behind. This act of honesty (or even generosity) by a goldcloak officer was a little surprise for Paedrig (and Ser Bywater was not very amused when he noticed it) but in the end Ser Bywater and the party said goodbye to each other in good terms.
The situation in the Green Tree Inn became a little bit strained given the fact that the Blyth and Lugus party stayed here. To prevent any new bloodshed the Blyth’s and the Dannett’s (which decided to not stay further in the green) and also Tygor Wyl changed their quarter – now after the tourney the Inns of Kings Landing were not longer overcrowded. Silently the party also hoped to minimize Orten Lugus chances by generating some distance between him and Iris Dannett.
The next day it was time for Paedrig to become a knight. In the evening he went to the Great Sept for the obligatory night watch. He was accompanied by some of his friends and new relatives although they left after a while leaving him to pray and to contemplate about the duties and obligations of a knight.
In the morning the Blyth Party and their new friends gathered together and Ser Tygor Wyl knighted Paedrig, also giving him a excellent (castle forged) shield and (much more costly) a beautiful black dornish Sand Steed which Paedrig named ‘Nymeria’. The young man was quiet surprised and moved by this present and did have difficulties to find the proper words.
As remembrances for his victory against the Fox Knight and Ser Naton Lugus Paedrig took an silver fox with an silver chalice on a blue shield as arms (The arms of the Fox Knight was a blue fox on silver while house Lugus did have a silver chalice with emeralds on a black shield). Paedrigs motto should be ‘Swift and Keen’.
(In game terms: by helping the family of his mother and Tygor Wyl and spending one destiny point, Paedrig gets the drawback ‘in dept’ and in the same time took the benefits ‘sponsor’ and ‘annoited’).
Shortly after this the two Gargalens left Kings Landing. As an anointed knight Paedrig Rivers might perhaps be not longer such a great shame for the family of his mother.
Two day later the Blyth party left together with the Dannetts. House Lugus has stayed quiet for the moment and did not start a new attempt to get Iris. Eric asked his sister Visennya that she should sent a courier after the slow travelling party if instructions by Gard (concerning the whole ‘Iris Dannett-thing’) arrived in the next few days. He also finally asked Paedrig if he did have any expenses during his time at Kings Landing and when Paedrig mentioned the money he had spend as ‘ransom’, Eric paid him (although not very enthusiastic).
Given the fact that now three sellswords and the two craftsmen for Erics dye business (plus their families) accompanied the party the two houses built a real big travelling party (almost 30 people) – also hoping that Orten Lugus will think twice before he tried an attack against such an big (and well armed) group.
However when the party left Kings Landing they saw a new sign of Orten Lugus ruthlessness: the rotten body of the only member of the Fox Knight band that was captured alive. Obviously ‘someone’ had convinced the goldcloaks that this man must be hanged…
The travelling back was much more peacefully than the last time. There were no attacks or other problems. However it was of course surprising for the people who had listened Adhams accusation against house Blyth that now the two houses travelled together and in peace. The members of the Blyth party did their best to reveal the truth about the events to anyone who asked (and Adham Dannett backed this if anyone asked HIM). However the young man was still very weak and depressed.
Paedrig (who was of course still enthusiastic about his knighthood) tried his best to make a good impression for Adham and his sister Iris but both siblings had quiet a lot to carry and think about…
However by increasing the disposition of the younger generation of house Dannett there was now a chance that the old feud between Blyth and Dannett will not be carried on.
Some days after the departure from Kings Landing Gards instructions arrived the party. Gard seemed not very fond of the idea that he might marry Iris Dannett (after all she was a ‘damaged good’ and he favoured the idea of marrying a Arran girl) and it was obvious that he despised the ambitions of Ruben Piper. Eric was not happy about this because he had hoped to get some money out of Ruben Piper if he would help him with the whole wedding thing. But given the fact that Lord Gard did not like the idea, Iris Dannett hate her would-to-be-groom and that her brother and father would prefer ANY noble candidate, Tygor Wyl seemed to have the best chances.
Eric (in contrast to the other members of the party – even Paedrig looked down on Ruben Piper) spent some times together with Ruben Piper who still was with the Dannett party and really frustrated by the acting of his ‘bride’.
For Eric Ruben Pipers ambitions were also a little bit strange given the fact that marrying Iris Dannett would mean great costs – and this only for a nice face and body and her noble blood…Certainly a very bad business!
He followed some suggestions Paedrig had mentioned some days ago and tried to convince Ruben Piper that he could only lost in this game (given also the disposition of his ‘bride’ and her family) and that it would be wiser if Ruben Piper would marry perhaps the daughter of one of the members of the Dragonport council (Eric hoped that he could get good business relations with Ruben Piper AND another member of the city council).
Eric than get a certain amount of money out of Ser Tygor Wyl by claiming that he might be able to influence the Dannetts that Tygor Wyl was the right candidate for Iris. He exaggerated his possibilities but really did his best to convince Iris and Adham that Tygor Wyl might be a good candidate (certainly Iris was much fonder of him than of her ‘groom’ Ruben Piper). When the all arrive the boundaries of Dannett- and Blyth-land the two parties split up and said farewell.
The Blyth party first went to Krayenhorn where they handed over the three horses they should show at the tourney to increase the reputation of the Krayenhorn breed. Ser Gawan of Krayenhorn was quiet impressed by their story.
Paedrig did his best to make a good impression with his new title, new armour and new horse but anyway the party did not stay for long because most wanted to come home.
The welcome at Dragonport was warm. Lord Gard was pleased by the outcome of the whole matter. Especially Eric and Paedrig seemed to have acted more than well. Gards disposition towards his uncle (and his mercantile projects) increased significantly and he gave Paedrig a castle forged sword as a gift for his knighthood and his loyal services.
With all the accusations, rumours and potential skirmish out of the way it might be time to reactivate Gard’s plans for a wedding alliance between house Blyth and Arran…
End of this adventure.
