Onyx Aurelius:
You receive word from the Seven Isles that they have formally agreed to the STG accords and await your inspectors for their port.

The wreckage of a harichu vessel washes into your port, what few survivors there are floating amongst the flotsam. Despite the citizens wanting them all killed one of the survivors has them in awe, a blond with pointed ears.  In her death-like grip was a chest containing two copies of the book ‘Principles of Magic: Theory, Application, and Interactions with the Natural World’.

The retrofits for the existing ships have begun as well as construction of the new experimental ship designs.  Mana Neko has started working with engineers to create a design of cannon to best use with the cartridge.

The Bureau of Information Control and Inquisitorial Investigation is quickly established and already at work in Port Sarum.

A ship from Nestav arrives to deliver a book 'Principles of Engineering' fully translated.  A note comes with it stating that the others are being worked (outside of the one no one wants to think about) by ancient Nestavians and should be done within a few months; it is signed by 'Smith'.

18 turns until the glider facility is complete. 5 turns for the Institute to be complete. 1 turn for Town upgrade to be complete.

Your scouts track the escaped koth past the mountains.  They were ambushed by soldiers of the local lands mind-controlled by the koth mage.  Only 40 of your men escape.

Your citizens are given some land by their host with only a small tithe required as payment.

The search for a court tauber continues.

Your spies send back word of a general order of mobilization that is sweeping across Shu.  Their army in their hundreds of thousands are gearing up for war.

2 turns for the ritual to be complete. 2 turns for the road to be complete.

Despite your people’s best efforts you were unable to find either a translation dictionary or a multi-lingual person willing to tutor your people in the laventine tongue or calligraphy.

Fortunes of the Road:
7d6+3=28 BLESSING +3 INF +3 WEL

The people of the kingdom settle down for the winter in the lands granted to them, and begin hunting and foraging to repay this great kindness. A tiny guild in an old wagon adorned with a painting of a blueberry begins it's rounds, looking for any winter fruit.

The scouts send a falcon back to the main army, requesting reinforcements from the Circle of Honor while they continue to track the Koth mage-- it will not escape Kreathean.

"You've got to be bloody joking." Segarus said, reading the message that had been attached to the falcon. Alongside them, late-arriving caravans moved by.
"What is it, my lord?" a captain asked.
"The buggering Koth the scouts went after can control men's minds, and they were attacked. They need reinforcements from the Circle."
"Bugger." another captain interjected feelingly.
"Could this not be a trap, m'lord? The scouts could have come under the beast's spell." suggested an officer of the Far-Eyes.
"It could be," Segarus said, brandishing the message. "But then I do not think this would be splattered with blood were it the case."
This was true, for it was.
"Scrape together a company, and dispatch them immediately." he ordered, and a knight-captain thundered away.
"If we let that beast get away from us, it could do far worse than possess an army." Segarus said to his captains. "So we cannot let it escape."

Fortune roll:
Total:22 Growth. Rolled 3. 3 to power

I'll send word to the chu letting them know that the shu are mobilizing for war.

I'll also order the draklings to return back to us within the next two months

The gnoll lord will also order the construction of a war smithy of small size for 3 wealth, and I'll put 10 population into it's construction

The gnoll lord will also consort with the laventino guests in private, and learn what he can about the chu that imprisoned them. He will also offer a deal to return them to laventino in time, but he must speak with whom ever the leader of their people is.

After all is said and done he will send an envoy to laventino to let them know that the gnolls are looking after some of their people, but requests that they remain with them so that they have time to recover from their hardships

I'll also use influence again upon house fletcher

House Geirmund, with the aid of Clan Grimmore, will begin construction of a Large (10 Wealth) University, offering engineering classes, studies of the arcane arts and other areas of higher learning, including military command and management courses for those interested.  Work on a Big Siege Workshop (7 Wealth) will also begin.  Both Geirmund and Grimmore will put ten Population into each project, equaling out to twenty Population working on the workshop and twenty more working on the university.

House Geirmund will begin training a unit of Personal Guard (7 Power) while Clan Grimmore will train two units of Support (6 Power).

As stated before, the Crusaders will join the front lines as soon as their training is finished, while the Engineers from both House Geirmund and Clan Grimmore will arrive to support the army however they can. 

At this point in time Lord Thrand will return with the spoils he has gained, leaving his knights in charge of the expedition forces.

House Fortune Rolls:
House Geirmund: 7d6 + 8 = 37 (Growth) 1d3 = 2 Wealth

Clan Grimmore: 9d6 - 7 = 22 (Growth) 1d3 = 2 Wealth

The system of governance is reformed. Bern is now replaced by the title King and the nobility will now have different ranks of Baron, Earl and Duke. House Stewart is hereby made a Dukedom. This is done to project the image of change.

A coronation is organised quickly so that normality can be achieved again.

Former Bern Robert is given a position as General of the army and is made a Duke by Edward.

Edward sends letters to Lady Aslaug asking when their next meeting can be held so that they can get to know each other again, hints are made as too Edwards sexuality but the letters do not outright state it.

A gift of 2 Wealth is given to King Isen in thanks for holding the meeting and as recompense for the proceeding of the meeting.

7d6=24+12(House Fortune) = 36 Result:Blessing Resource allocation: Power+Defense


Copies of the Engineering book are made and distributed to both the Institute, and to the various project sites.

A single copy of the book on magic is made, the original, along with the other book is sent onward to its original destination in the possession of the stranger(The Seven Isles in this case). Additional copies are ordered, but are expected to take time to produce given the nature of the book.

Preparations are made for the coming growing season, notably coffee plantations are set to be expanded.

A proposal is made to the various other houses involving the theory of "Governing districts" as way to simplify tax and resource management.

The group from Laventino returns, along with a plethora of insights into various new civil ideas, and technological ideas. Many of these ideas are brought up for consideration, notably the idea of winter/fall schooling, public lecture on advanced topics, water powered mills, as well as civil structures and tax law. Tech insights also include tracked vehicles, central heating, basic flight, as well as basic machining of tools and parts. Magical insights include the idea of distributed mana draw from multiple crystals.(Mana capacitors)

STG inspectors and representatives are sent out to the following: Ponthos, The Isles, Nestav, and House Fletcher.

Bern Harris sends a message to the heads of all his bannerhouses saying that he will explain the reasons to his sudden militarization to those who wish to join him at The Tip of the Serpent at months end. To those who joined House Zenna, Barn Harris explained the situation.

"At the end of year past I was visited by a house from the kingdoms to the south. He had been forced off their land and made to flee north. The kingdoms to the south had been raized by a horde of Koth. This had been said to me with a head of one of the beasts slammed on this very table. With this and our original purpose as an outpost for the old Empire, I made my choice to prepare for this coming horde. If the Head of the House was truthful in this statement then in two and a half years the fruit of this labour will allow us to protect many a soul. Should this be nothing more than a lie, then when the years have passed we will be a position of power. We will be able to gather wealth, land, and power so that all your heirs have the power of a great lord. If you would call me fool, then do so now and stake your claim, or hold your tongue and trust my wisdom."

Fortune roll:
I roll 28, to which I add my House Fortune of 10, giving me 38. Thus, I gain Growth.

I improve one resource by 1d3 points; Wealth. I roll 1. Because I have a marketplace and a port, I can roll 1d6 too. The result is 1, for a total of 2.

I convert 4 of my Wealth into Pop. When will they be ready? If they are ready by this turn, I will assign half of them on the construction of the Serpent Road.

Rally my military forces and those of my Banner Houses so they can train together (standard joint exercises).

To start, two wealth will be given to House Aslaug as they were the ones wronged.

A commander will be trained (up to trained) for 7 power.

A political marriage is pursued with House Aslaug, with a proposal of unwed nobles from both lands being married off without complicating each other's line of succession and giving rise to the possibility of pretenders or usurpers.

General Research is conducted, 4 pop given over to the University once it is done. This general research would include magic.

Some merchants are sent to house fletcher's lands to see how things are going since the end of the peace talks.

Additional diplomacy is conducted with the Southern coast as a whole to further relations and attempt to create additional alliances with ports and cities to help protect against the northern coast and piracy.
