Does Alaric have to be dead? (Sniff!!) What did he die of since he would be about 70-ish? I think. Of course his dad did die in his 50s from heart attack & that kind of stuff can be inherited.

The cause of Alaric's demise is not relevant to game play (at this time) so we can figure it out later if required.

I think Kenneth's demise came from sepsis from a battle wound, not a heart attack, but I could be wrong on that.  I know Alyce died shortly after giving birth to Bronwyn.

Even if he was fit and healthy for a 70-year-old, I can see him not being quite able to keep up anymore if he were, say, suddenly ambushed or betrayed by someone younger and with swifter reflexes. Maybe he died in service to his King, protecting Kelson from a would-be assassin and buying him enough time to turn the tables on their attacker? I can see an honorable death in battle (even if not officially during wartime) as a way the King's Champion would prefer to go, rather than dying of old age or in a sick bed.  That's just one possible scenario, of course.  I'm sure our GM can think of lots of other ways to explain why we now have a Duke Kelric rather than our beloved Duke Alaric. (Not that we don't love Kelric too, but since we haven't really gotten to know him yet, it's harder not to envision him as a baby on Richenda's knee. LOL!)

Well my first thought when I declared that the Duke was dead was due to some kind of battle. Too far from any of the few Healers (including those of his relation). And unable to summon his own strength to focus on healing. He passed due to the wounds inflicted on him. But I don't have any other details that that. I'm sure the Duke's son(s) will know.

Just imagining the possible spin-off stories from this rpg campaign. Maybe Aliset should keep a journal?  LOL!

I actually had a friend who used to keep a detailed journal of our RPG campaigns, both to help her remember what happened during the last adventure (since we only got to play once a month or thereabouts), but also because she enjoyed writing spin-off stories inspired by her journal notes.

I remember once reading from either Shiral's hand or Jerusha's that KK was not allowed to kill off Alaric, that he had to die asleep in his bed after the age of ninety. I was always in full agreement with that theory. But now I see it is not KK's hand who has "Done our beloved hero in."  Not KK's hand at all, but our beloved Game master Bynw who did the deed.  :'( :'(
At least if it is around the years 1159-1163 or so, Alaric was almost  seventy and he was a fighting man to the end. He will be forever missed. This is a good reason for Washburn to be wearing black, in honor of Alaric.

(P.S. I hope it offends no one that Washburn was made a Morgan. If it does, I am sorry. It  just sort of fell in that way, It was not my original intention.)

I just got back from taking dad to a dr appointment, maintenance stuff, and it looks like our adventure has begun and I still have to read how this is going to play out.

Oh and Hint, hint, to a few rhemuth castle members. I think we may need a Priest.. hint, hint.. or another adventure to meet up with along the way. Perhaps a younger son of Dhugal's or Rory's, or even a younger prince to join us. Yes? Lol. Now to go learn how to do this. I am a newbie at  role-playing.  We may be in for some troubled times.

Giving some thought to making a character who's a priest. Not right now though, since I'm very much engaged in writing my november project and fighting off a cold.

When I game, I often play a healer class, but at the moment, offline life has me a bit too busy to roll up a character for this campaign.  Maybe somewhere down the line I can play an Anviller or something who found Annales Queroni or some other lovely old manuscript(s) full of forgotten knowledge . . .

I'm considering an "adventurer", but I need some time for my mind to cook them up into something more complete.

The authority and influence of the Camberian Council has been waining since the days of King Donal, Kelson's grandfather. This trend continued into Kelson's reign to the point now that the Camberian Council, who thinks mighty highly of themselves, is all but a joke outside of Gwynedd itself. The fear and authority it once had on Deryni in the 11 Kingdoms is long gone. However it still holds influence in Gwynedd itself.

Here the existance of the council is somewhat known even to Humans. Its existance was whispered about to help ease the fear of Deryni within Gwynedd. The existance of a Deryni court where wayward Deryni who misuse their power will be tried and punished. The membership is still secret. Although some members are known. It is known that Denis Arlin is on the Camberian Council.

Actually if you read the account of Kenneth's death it is consistent with a heart attack. I just don't see why bynw had to kill off Akaric, but early on it sounded like he died in battle repulsing an invasion of Corwyn  and killed Teymuraz. Am I remembering it right?

Maybe I'm thinking of the arrow Kenneth took to the leg around the time Donal decided to betroth Alyce to him.

Or possibly I'm thinking of Alyce's brother, Ahearn.  I don't know, and I don't have any of my books readily to hand, and I don't have the relevant trilogy in e-book format so that I could look on Kindle.
