In the Manorhouse

Miklos recognised the protesting voices from the drawing room. “Ahh it seems my companions have made their own way here. That is well. By your leave I will invite them in here and introduce them to you, Lord Senator.”

As the motley crew entered the room Miklos introduced each one, “…and my friends allow me to introduce you to Senator Anastio, friend of Theosius our employer and Simion Torenescu and enemy of the Veiled Society. They have generously offered us aid and healing from their friends at the local church. They are also deep in the intrigues we have found ourselves in and may hopefully enlighten us further.” Miklos added.

Maruc wondered if there would be any issue in accepting healing from another church. He wasn’t really trained for interfaith co-operation, still Halavist’s never turned wounded folk from their door. Especially ones sent by local dignatries.

“Greetings my Lords,” said the country born priest. “I’m afraid our etiquette may seem a little rough for you so I would ask your forebearance. Thank you for your offer of aid. I, at the least, will accept it.” Maruc gratefully slumped into a proffered seat and also accepted a hot drink with a grin to the servant.

“Nicolai is our most sorely wounded friend, I will tend him until the morning. He is a brave and noble soul who fought with us without thought to his own safety. I daren’t think what would have happened had he not been there.”

The swordswoman listened to this conversation quietly, seeking only a few tidbits of information. Why did the Veils want a piece of Simion? What were their goals, and how did that contrast with the selfsame of Simion and his faction?

After seeing the severity of Nicolai’s wounds, the senator called one of his aids to him. “Your friend looks to be in need of immediate healing. My aid can escort you to the Church of Traladara.”

    The dwarf who had been stoically silent during the introductions and polite greetings with the Senator was a little less so on the way to the Church. “What a fine kettle of fish we’ve found ourselves in, eh? Has anyone figured out how Simion and the Senator fits into all of this yet?”

    When the group finally arrives at the Church, he will offer to make a donation to the church in exchange for the clerics aiding him and his party.

  3. Saeth Tegau

    Not even a hint of what this rivalry consisted of. Perhaps this was normal–what were most mercenaries but pawns? Still, it bothered Saeth. What sort of heroine could she be in this story, wandering around at another’s behest, for no reason that she (nor the minstrel) could know?
    Before they left for the temple she asked, perhaps more pointedly than might have been prudent, “What does Simion aim to do, now that he’s back in the city? And why do these Veils oppose you? What makes your allies different?”
    Of course, it wasn’t long before Saeth would come up with a persuasive answer on her own: she was taking the Toranescu’s coin.

  4. Maruc

    Maruc paused to hear what the Lords might say to Saeths comments, before offering his own. “What sort of danger are we in and what can we do about it? What has so riled the Radu to make an atempt on your life Lord Simion? These are extreme measures even for a ‘bunch of thugs’. The Veiled Society is a well supplied and trained group driven by some polical agenda.” Maruc was feeling a little tired and it was making him a little short tempered but he tried not to let it show in his voice.

    “I repeat my previous question namely would it be more appropraite to flee the city? Do you have any country residences that you may retire to until this situation calms down?”

  5. Miklos (Mu 1)

    “My friends Lord Simion has had a trying evening, prehaps after we have returned from the church and he has had chance to collect his thoughts, He may indulge our curiosity.”

    To the Lords Miklos added. “Do you have an objection to our returning? If anything we can further support your guard for a while?”

  6. Sorry guys, been super busy with the holidays coming and all. I’ll have an update in 12-24 hours.
