Trust a guard to have the "Good stuff" and be forth-with in sharing it. Thank you Andres.
Too bad there wasn't a bottle of "Old Ballymar" sitting in the Librarian's desk.  ;D

Poor Richard!  Knowing that someone could control his mind and force him to attack a man he has trusted and respected for so long can not be easy to deal with.

Iain is very well-advised not to trust his fate to a throw of the dice.
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)

You took the words right out of my mouth!  :D

Seriously, this link seems apt (goes to a photo on a Facebook RPG page):

More and more Complicated and a little scary. Feel bad for Richard  who can't help being reluctant about Deryni power. Hope he can resolve that. Dhugal really needs him. Couldn't Darcy help as a master seaman?
Do agree with Iain about trusting Lady Luck as we all know how fickle she can be

That's awesome DesertRose. Gaming dice can be fickle.

I wonder if they will be able  to find out anything more from the ring. Feel sad that  Kelson feels he can't  make more effort to find Wash but understand  that finding and defeating those  behind these attacks has to come first. Hope Wash survives and is rescued sometime.
Jaxom deserves anything Kelson deals out to him. Don't  know how Aliset will feel about having him apologize. Would probably   prefer to never see him again.
As usual, wonderful writing from everyone

Wonderful depth in your scene, revanne.  Very in tune with who king and prince need to be.  Though sorry Araxandra had to learn such a hard lesson.

Good writing all! I really won't be happy till that pompous ass, Jaxom, is safely out of Rhemuth.  I hope Aliset tells him never to darken her door again.  Worried for the Tinker but hopeful he will be safe & the little girl, too. I hope Wash can get away soon. Please keep on making me sit on the edge of my seat while I'm reading!

I think Lady Aliset, once she is well enough to receive visitors, will likely accept Lord Jaxom's apology with the grace of her station and character, and then quite possibly read him the Riot Act to end all Riot Acts.  (We'll just ignore the lack of historical precedent, since the actual Riot Act was not passed in England until 1715 [and actually repealed in 1967].)

It all makes me think of British and US Southern women, particularly those of older generations, who can wield words keener than the sharpest blade without ever being exactly rude.  ;)

Though sorry Araxandra had to learn such a hard lesson.

And equally hard, if not harder, for Javan, that if he seeks to evade the consequences of his actions, others will suffer and harshly. An important lesson for a royal heir to learn.
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.

I can see too where Araxandra was a strong willed girl, being Kelson's eldest Haldane child. She was willing to take the punishment for her baby brother. Most likely she never once complained about it. even though her papa's final punishment must of stung like mad.

I just found this castle and I instantly thought of Rhemuth Castle.

Conwy Castle in Wales built in 1283.
Rhemuth would be three-times as big with more garden and a double wall. But I think the look is very close.





Or perhaps I will throw in a picture of Caernarfon Castle built in the same years.

Laurna, you are definitely taking me back to some of the happiest times of my life when the family were all growing up in Chester and these castles were all within an easy day trip.

I agree with the look for Conwy or Caernarfon but I think the location is much more that of Coroth, being on the edge of the sea.

Incidentally the beach you can see behind Caernarfon castle is Anglesey across the Menai Straits and Caernarfon is actually a corruption of Caer na fon - the castle across from Ynys Mon. You can see the Latin influence on Welsh very clearly there - Caer is Castle, (Latin castra) Ynys is island (Latin insula) and the Latin for Anglesey is Mona.

They were built by Edward I after his conquest of Wales in the 1280's, something that still rankles to this day especially in this part of North Wales, which is part of the ancient principality of Gwynedd. Think a successsful Wencit and you will get the idea. I once casually referred to Prince Charles as Prince of Wales in a north Welsh lady's hearing and she went off, as we say, like a bottle of pop "He is Not Prince of Wales. Llewelyn was the last Prince of Wales!!". Never mind the said Llewelyn died in battle in 1284.
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)

Love the look of Conwys  for Rhemuth even though it is smaller and on the sea. Would love to tour Wales someday and see them. After the Welsh lady's comment about Prince Charles I guess it's not so unrealistic for Feyd to carry a grudge for 200 years.

Not unrealistic at all. What's a mere two hundred years between enemies.

    let those who hate him flee before him.
