Charred structures in the city were testament to the recent fighting, and the city itself was virtually silent and empty of people, most who had hidden within its protection having returned to their homes throughout the duchy. Those who watched the arriving nobility with bleary eyes were skeletal thin, many bearing wounds or burns. The city guard in particular sported more crutches than spears, but regardless there was a certain spring to their step which only victory can grant.

Although the town of Marleons had been virtually burned down, the castle itself was in surprisingly good maintenance, the castle guards looking slightly better fed than their counterparts in the city, though they too had their share of wounded. The caste walls were besmirched by boulders and rotting carcasses of siege towers that had not yet been cleared away.

Inside the castle however it was another world, the opulence of Marleons had been preserved here, and the nobility continued with lives with little pause from outside events, though even they looked thinner than their counterparts throughout the rest of Pendor.

The room reserved for the meeting was in the same simple stone as the rest of the castle, but a hearty fire burned in the hearth, and the walls were covered in banners and tapestries which did quite a lot to keep the drafts at bay. In the centre of the room was a semi-circular table, with chairs lined around its outer edge, facing another table raised up on a slight dais. Two guards in ducal livery stood by the raised table, and permitted none near it, though the outer table had no placards, it was clear this was where the Eastern Nobility were to sit.

Each place had a small packet of parchments, some loose sheafs of paper and a pen with inkwell, together with a goblet and jug filled with water set between places.

(OOC : Meeting wont start till tomorrow UK time, but thought I’d let people start making an entrance and allow some more small talk. If you've not arrived by the next post, I will just assume that you have.)

The Astigi warband had never breached the wall of Marleons, having fought a guerilla style war with the Silvermist rangers, or a a light cavalry charge to support their halbediers in open battle. Marleons, as such, was an unfamiliar sight to Valdir's eyes. The townsfolk and even its city guard looked malnourished and Valdir felt some satisfaction in the fact that his villagers were definitely better fed. The ride to the castle, accompanied by the escort Countess Tysha had arranged in her limitless hospitality, had been a silent one as Valdir had felt the urge to press a handkerchief against his nose to prevent him smelling the foul odours of a besieged people.

Although Valdir entered together with all the other guests of Countess Tysha, he tried to find himself a seat somewhere in the middle, where he could almost face the raised table directly. Silently he filled his goblet with crystal clear water and tested the ink on a piece of parchment. He was happy he had decided to shave and bath in the hours before their departure.

Lady Tysha did not quite make her way directly to the chamber. The room she rented wasn't entirely up to the standards of a noblewoman, least of all one landed in her own right, but it was all the city had to offer for the time being. She bathed and changed from her riding clothes into a suit of black velvet and a luxurious amount of red silk. Her cloth-of-gold cloak was neatly unpacked and draped around her shoulders by the time she entered the castle.

It was Lord Vealdis that had taken most advantage of the escort, and it seemed he would continue it right into the chamber.

Vealis stood in a hallway that lead to the Council chamber, he waited for someone. His clothing were quite different then that he wore to the feast. He wore a green, fur coat with a golden trim around the edges. A green hat trimmed with beige with fur and a golden feather adorned his head. His beard was neatly sharp around his face.
The belt around his waist and the buckles of his black velvet shoes were of gold and shined as brightly as the golden ring on his ring finger, bearing his sigil. Here stood not the same man that was feasting in Tysha's tent. Here stood the rich merchant prince from Windholm.

He waited patiently on lady Tysha, knowing that she must come
through this hallway.

Simon Lane arrived at the Eastern Council. Instead of wearing formal garb, Simon wore his armor to the meeting. It was still somewhat damp from the nightly journey, but it was dry enough to be comfortable to wear. His battle axe, henceforth known as Dawnbreaker, hinted at signs of bloodshed, suggesting that the warrior ran into some obstacles on his way to Marleons.

The count, as in the feast, chose an isolated seat off to the side of the semi-circular table. This time, he waited patiently for the council to begin its session.

Tysha arrived not long after Simon Lane. A sword rested at her left hip, the pummel decorated with red and black leather, topped with a golden lion's head.

"My lord merchant, how wonderful it is to see you again. I trust your time in the city has been safe, even without a larger escort?"

''What is there to fear? Everyone in this city looks like they will fall down if you blow too hard in their direction. All would be blight in here anyhow if you hadn't arrived to have the city gaze upon true beauty. But enough for the toadyism on my part.''

Vealdis moved closer to Tysha, one could have smelled the odour lavender. His voice goes over in a whisper, loud enough to be heard from some distance, but soft enough to not be heard outside of the hallway.

"All could have seen the splendour of your feast and the plans that you got for your new seat, but I hope that you keep in the back of your mind that all these expenses aren't cheap. I might not understand everything there is to know about warfare but were I do know things about is gold and silver, my lady. And if you want to keep wearing the type of gowns and dresses you sooo much enjoy, you should start looking at a source of income.''

Vealdis smilled at the woman before continuing.

''Let's be honest now, you are a fighter and commander, I'm a glorified and humble merchant, together we are a force to be reckoned with. One that will last, longer then one war.''

Tysha smiled for a moment before answer, still speaking quietly as she walked closer to the council chamber door.

"I'm touched that you care so much to see me remain clothed, and in my customary splendor at that. I do indeed have plans for my new seat, and for other lands as well. All contributions to the House will be remembered, my lord. The next feast will no doubt have a table with less equal seating, after all."

"The Silver Throne is remarkably uncomfortable, my lord. It was in the days of King Ulric and the Lion of Sarleon. The Griffons merely rule a larger land. With all the courtiers of Pendor, I doubt the King has time to rise from it each day."

She smiled and nodded at Lord Vealdis before entering the chamber.

Count Everard walked into the chamber, he had a grim face. He had just returned from family business in the West. His father had passed away after a period of illness, and Everard had only just left the funeral before he was summoned to this council.

He took the seat closest to him, he felt a sting in his heart when he saw the look on the faces of the city-people. The conflict had affected everyone. Hopefully, something could be done for the region at this meeting.

It had been a year since Lady Laisha had last stepped foot into a city.  And that was a short visit only, mostly to instigate a rebellion between knights.  Of course, she hadn't set foot in a city four years before that moment.  She much preferred the wilderness.  Yet, her aloofness didn't stop her from feeling for the weary souls of Marleons.

Entering the meeting chamber, she regarded those already gathered for a moment before finding a seat farther away from the door.  She seemed uncomfortable in the presence of the others, subtle betrayals of her feelings present in her body language rather her expression.

Vincent arrived in the City with the others but as he saw the poor condition the people were he ordered his servants close to him and stopped at a corner. He then dismounted and started handing out most of the provision that they still had with them.
As he was finished the others were already out of sight. He and his men just continued on foot from now on, they walked slowly through the streets and Vincent tried to talk to the men and women, to show them that life would get better.
He talked about Astrea and that the goddess was with them. He hoped he was able to help at least some of them. He had seen much peril in his time but the scale at which he saw it here in Marleons was too great to go unnoticed.

He looked haggard as he reached the place in which the meeting took place. He always cared too much for other people, in each woman in the streets he saw his wife and each and every child was like his own.
He entered  the meeting room with slow steps. He quickly looked up and managed a short smile and a few words.

"Greetings everyone."

He then took a seat next to a man he didn't see before, but it was like looking into a mirror, his face as broken-down and sad as his. He dared not speak at this time, the wounds in his soul were just too deep. So he just sat there and waited for the meeting to begin.

While unfamiliar faces arrived, Valdir dipped his pen into the ink bottle. He wrote down the names he had already heard and left open spaces for those still unknown. He relied perhaps too much on his old steward, who had taught him to read and write while the Astigi warband occupied Talon March. The inexperience made Valdir a slow writer.

A slow writer, but he never forgot a face and made sure to get a good impression of all the newcomers.

Quiris arrived in Marleons in stoic silence that was almost a fundamental part of him. His military garb had only received one change: a symbol of Raven Spear patched onto his shoulder. Seeing the destruction wrought to the people of Marleons made Quiris feel disgusted. Was there no boundary the Silvermists wouldn't cross? Good riddance, that the scum were beaten and routed. The people of Marleons would just have to survive now, and emerge stronger from it.

The castle was a different sight altogether. The halls were overly frivolous and ornamented. Quiris himself preferred the more practically designed halls of Ravenfort that wouldn't overwhelm the visitors and show off unneededly. Although, this much was to be expected from the rich lords.

Quiris limped his way to a seat with his walking stick. He took a seat near Simon Lane, but did't say anything or imply any need to start a conversation, for now.

The hour of them meeting arrived, and passed without event, and the gathered nobles were left to talk quietly between themselves or maintained their stoic silence. Fifteen minutes late, the oaken door was finally opened, and through it strode three men.

The first was a significantly overweight man of middle years, the royal Griffon embroidered on his tunic. Under his arm he carried a number of papers, and carried himself with an air of confident superiority common to members of the senior aristocracy. He glanced at the twin guards with a haughty expression until they moved out of his way. He then made his way to the central seat on the raised dais.

Behind him was another man of similar girth, though it was clear that this man was formerly of a muscular build, and that this had turned to fat through age and inaction rather than a particular love of food. His clothes were very well made, and he wore a slanted cap even indoors.

Finally the last member of the assembly was of an entirely different build, lithe and athletic with a fine muscular structure. His clothing was a mix of green and gold, and seemed to be permanently dust-stained and well worn. He was the only one to glance over the waiting nobility before taking his place, and as he did he offered Laisha a smile, then took his place at the dais.

The central figure rose when all had made themselves comfortable, reaching into a pocket and pulling out a small tin the contents of which he smeared on his index finger, that was in turn held to his nose and sniffed in with a mighty snort. Wrinkling his nose against its effects, he began to speak.

"I am Florian Dorengh *sniff*-Montague and I will act as the chairman for this gathering. I am a member of the Griffons as was stated in my letter to you all, where I serve His Majesty as a..." here he paused, and replaced the tin into his pocket with a smile

"'technical advisor' with wide powers to enforce his, ahem, will. In the future you will have the chance to elect a chair for subsequent meetings, as per the regulations posted in those...

He paused, and held his index finger rigidly over his nose, but it did no good. He let out an almighty sneeze which reverberated around the room. Wiping his nose down with a hastily applied handkerchief, he finished as though nothing had happened, replacing the tissue as he did,

“*sniff* ...packets, which I would invite you all to read at your leisure."

His eyes began to water, and he pinched his nose hard between his fingers, wriggling it about as though trying to dislodge something within.

"*sniff* As you well know, the steppe suffered most during the recent war, and thus His Majesty has seen fit to grant certain privileges to see it improved. Firstly, the Law of Halves is hereby revoked, the Mystmountains remain a considerable threat, and we would like to see this frontier well defended against incursions” he stated with little apparent care about whether the barbarians were dealt with or not.

“Secondly, the Feudal Law is in force, with the limitation that County titles may not, for the moment, be usurped. Steal your neighbours cows, kidnap their peasants, or even invite the Mystmountains around for tea, for all I care, just do not destroy the delicate balance of power in the region; however this is a matter which should be discussed later in the meeting as I am sure that this Council can come to some form of legal regulation regarding the transfer of power.”

Once again he grabbed the handkerchief, and blew his nose loudly into it, before replacing it in his pocket with a grimace.

“Lastly, onto the matter of the Mystmountains themselves, Pendor is not formally at war with them, as His Majesty is worried about further incursion into Ravenstern lands, however this does not mean they may not be targeted, and you may likewise expect raids on your own properties from them. For the time being they are too well entrenched to take, but that may change in the future. This matter should also be considered during any deliberations over the reclamations of new territories.”

His piece apparently done, he glanced down at his papers, and shuffled through them giving a snort or a grunt as he skimmed their contents, apparently he was an able administrator even if he was terrible at speaking. He stopped at one page, and read it through once more before raising his head to the nobles.

“There is one other matter to be addressed, but it is not so pressing at the moment, so let us deal with these issues first, before I hand things over to my companions who I am sure also have concerns to raise with you. Open for discussion now are; The Law of Halves, and the Feudal Law, including the legal transfer of title and power. Any comments thus far?”

Everard noticed someone sit next to him, who's face betrayed his feelings inside. Could it be? Another noble who cares? Perhaps the East has a chance..

Following the Griffon's arrival, Everard raised his eyebrows.

"As you yourself said, the Steppe has suffered the most in the recent war. As stewards of these lands it is our job to tend to the souls of the East, is there any additional information on the Mystmountains? In my studies, I have heard of the clans that compose their forces. Are these clans at odds with each other, or do they stand united against Pendor?"

Re: The Eastern Council : Session One

Post by Andros Vaaron on Thu Jul 11, 2013 3:03 am

Perhaps unoticed by the others present, a tall man in battered plate armour stood, arms folded, impatient behind the fat litle Griffon man as he opened the meeting. As he watched the obtuse little creature in front of him stumble akwardly over his own words, he began making overly loud clicking noises with his tongue, clearly irritated by the length of time it took the Royal entourage to clear the doorway.

Bloody nobles. You tear my homeland to pieces for your own selfish gain, and now you have to balls to strut around MY home city, to debate the laws by which My people should live?!? May Astraea's justice fall swiflty upon you all...

Reaching the end of his patience, the Griffon finally finished his painstaking speech, and the armoured man made his way past the three Kingsmen, brusquely. He looked over the room before him, and a clear disdain for the gathering spread over his face. Reluctantly, the man bowed stiffly and began announcing.

"My Lords, My Ladies, Godwin Ardell, at your service and the service of the King. My Lord Andros Vaaron expresses his deepest regrets that he could not attend in person, for the reasons stated as follows"

Godwin proceeded to unravel a scroll that was tucked into his belt.

"To all present for this most prestigious Eastern Council. It is my regret that I cannot attend this meeting of my peers. However, whilst the lords of this land will trade empty words and sing their own praises as to their prowess in the Noble Wars, I will content myself to remain here at Southrun County. For so long as my people must rebuild their homes, re-sow the fields salted by the unjust, struggle to feed their families and try to rebuild their shattered lives, I will be by their side with hammer, scythe, plow and pitchfork as my weapons. I intend to show these poor folks that not all nobles of Pendor have forgotten their duties. I will however send your regards to them.

Yours, with love, Andros Vaaron"

Godwin grinned widely by the end of the letter, and had no shame in allowing the others to see it.

"Good old Andros" he muttered to himself as he went to stand behind the chair of his Lord, never a thought of occupying it in his mind.

Under his breath, Simon commented, "Bastards. All of them. They care not for the well being of the northern lands, and they open up the gates of strife in the Eastern Steppes.

So be it. If they want to turn the steppes into hell on Pendor, let them. By the time the dust settles, my people will be up north in our ancestral homeland, isolated from the rest of the world."


The warrior then then tries to drink from his goblet, but ends up disfiguring it. It was apparent that Simon's patience grew thin...

Re: The Eastern Council : Session One

Laisha regarded the man who smiled at her with surprise.  She seemed slightly less disinterested after, even as Florian rambled.

When he finally finished, she observed the early reactions of the others, trying to perceive their motivations and reactions.  She nodded as Everard asked his question.
 "The Mystmountains have their infighting," she answered flatly.  "But they'll always come together if they perceive a threat or want to raid.  Making life miserable for Ravenstern, and Pendor, is what they do best."

Vealdis, who has taken seat next to Tysha listened to Florian's little speech and was not the least bothered. He knew these kind of practises. He did however raise an eyebrow at the letter Andros had sent. He turns his head to Godwin.

''Lackey? or what ever your name was. If your lord has more pleasure in working on the field then governing the East then let him stay standing in the mud. It is a disgrace that he cares more for his own reputation with his peasants then the good of the realm. Send that to him when you see him building a shed.''

''Further more...How could we best tackle the threat? Try to root them our or building strong defences?''
