Getting better and better Laurna. Love how even in these awful circumstances Wash is maturing as a character.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

More concerned for Wash. Interrogating gray beard will not help in finding him as I had hoped since it seems unlikely  he will know much  if anything about Feyd. They were not allies but apparently just there at the same time by accident.

Both of you wrote very well & bynw also. Anxious for Wash, I imagine at some point Darcy may win the fair maid back. I hope so. Jaxom should be flogged for making himself available to the malicious machanizations of the evil ones.

LOL, poor Jaxom!  I don't much like him either, but to be fair, he really had no more choice in his actions than Lord Derry did under those circumstances. And he did nothing that any of our heroes (or ourselves) wouldn't have done in his situation. How could he have known that a random collision with a passing stranger wasn't random at all, but deliberately planned so the stranger could take over his mind? The only thing he was truly guilty of was being so distracted by thoughts of Aliset that he didn't pay sufficient attention to where he was walking, and that could have happened to Darcy nearly as easily. (And if it had, we'd be rightfully outraged at the attacker and wishing flogging or worse on him, not on poor Darcy!)

Darcy may have had a chance at resisting greybeard, since he does have shields.  It would have been a disadvantage roll, though, and we know how well dice rolls tend to go.

I feel for Richard. As Captain of his ship, he did what he thought he should do by taking action in a fast manor.
This has brought up an interesting point. Gwynedd's Deryni nobility have all been brought into the ethics of high moral values and personal freedom. So much so that the human population has forgotten why the generations before them feared Deryni.  It makes sense that the old fears were swept under the carpet, allowing both sets of people to trust one another.  I hope these Deryni who abuse others freedoms will be brought to justice, long before the fear of all Deryni again spreads though the population.

I hope Richard will come to see that it isn't the power that needs fearing but the man willing to abuse that power. A tough lessen but if anyone can win back Richard, it will be Dhugal.

I wasn't thinking of the wider implications that Laurna makes when I wrote what Richard said, just trying to reflect what he would think when the rules have so dramatically changed from Deryni are powerful but they only use that power in the pursuit of good and the restraint of evil to Deryni can take over a human mind in the pursuit of their own interests. However I am now wondering if encouraging human hostility to the Deryni nobility of Gwynedd might not be part of Valerian's game plan.

But Valerian is also Deryni. If he promotes hatred and fear of Deryni  won't that also affect him and his accomplices? After his murder of Lord Dunstan as well as the massacre in the castle, I  was wondering  if the Mearan people might  turn against the separatists.

In the long term I agree it might be a bad strategy although if he is content to rule through naked power and fear it might not matter so much. In the short-term anything that can disrupt the Pax Kelsonia  and divide the people of Gwybedd must surely be to his advantage. Hopefully though, as you suggest, this will all backfire on him.

the Mearan loyalists know full well that without Deryni help their chances of ending Haldane rule will fail. the Haldane Kings are either Deryni or have Deryni-like powers. the Haldane Kings have Deryni allies and the Mearans know full well that the Deryni can do when it comes to extracting information from captured patriots.

the plan, if there is one, to sow seeds of distrust shouldn't be between Human and Deryni. because there are Deryni who support the Mearan loyalist cause just as there are Deryni who support the unlawful Haldane rule. it needs to be spun in the direction that the loyalist Deryni are good and the Haldane Deryni are evil, secretive, and don't allow free thinking men to guide their own destinies.

Deryni aren't the problem. it's those Haldanes and those who side with them that are the problem. usurpers all of them. usurping the will of free Meara and free men.

I feel bad for Wash that he feels alone in all of this. Haven't heard anything  recently about any pursuit or rescue efforts. Surely there must be something  happening in that direction.
Also, if I remember  right the Mearan people loved  Rory and had been happy with his rule. Wonder how many Mearans really want to exchange him for the separatists  and Valerian  who is showing himself to be  ruthless and cruel. Even some separatists  might come to feel that they have made a mistake,

Well at least they gained some information. I think I'll be careful not to end up in the dungeons though. Very frightenly described.

I wasn't expecting  they would get much from him. Didn't  think he would know much and unfortunately  nothing about Feyd. I have to agree Revanne, that dungeon sounds like a place to avoid at all costs. Do wish they could have examined the amulet. Ah well.

At least they know about the ring. And the thought that he would have targeted Darcy first was a little unnerving. At least there is some good reason for Darcy and Columcil to have gone to Desse.

Or maybe Darcy would have caused enough resistance to have drawn attention to himself. One could have hoped.

With apologies to Dhugal, Richard and Andras for my last post. I decided I would get some dice rolls in hand. Bad idea !!I had to find a way of using some of them up which did not create too much havoc.
