Holiday Greetings / For a bit of fun -- Happy St. Gertrude's Day
« Last post by DesertRose on March 17, 2018, 04:02:22 pm »
So, in addition to 17 March being the saint's day for the more well-known St. Patrick, it is also St. Gertrude's Day.

Info on St. Gertrude here:

St. Gertrude is the patron saint of cats, of repelling mice, and of people with mental illness.

Since Carys, in addition to being my beloved pet, is also my emotional support animal for my anxiety, it is only fitting to celebrate her today in honor of St. Gertrude.

Here is Carys, getting treats on "her" end table, after she purred while I trimmed her nails.

Please feel free to add any photos of your kitties for St. Gertrude!  ;D

In the Codex under Caball MacArdry page 52, I discovered Caball "is the great grandson of Ardal Earl of Transha and Malya Lady McLain youngest daughter of Sir Roger McLain."

***Party time!***

Roger has a new undiscovered daughter Lady Malya McLain!

Malya McLain marries Ardal MacArdry Earl of Transha
Their son is Arthur MacArdry.
Arthur has two known sons, Caulay MacArdry and Autry MacAdry


Also Autry MacArdry has a son Caball MacArdry, who is second in line to the Earl of Transha until Dhugal has his own son.

Thanks for pointing out Malya and Caball! I don't think that Caball's father, Autry, has to be Arthur's son, though.

Here is what I know from the codices:
Ardal MacArdry -- Malya McLain
+ Arthur MacArdry -- Alannah O'Beirne
  + Caulay MacArdry -- Adreana
    + Ardry MacArdry
    + Michael MacArdry
    + Maryse Macardry -- Duncan Howard McLain
    + ...
  + Sicard MacArdry -- Caitrin Caren Urracca Quinnell
    + ...
+ ?? (may be Arthur)
  + Autry MacArdry -- Gwladys
    + Caball MacArdry
    + ...

If Autry were Arthur's son (and Caulay and Sicard's brother):
Ardal MacArdry -- Malya McLain
+ Arthur MacArdry -- Alannah O'Beirne
  + Caulay MacArdry -- Adreana
  + Sicard MacArdry -- Caitrin Caren Urracca Quinnell
  + Autry MacArdry -- Gyladys
    + Caball MacArdry

If Autry were Arthur's nephew (and Caulay and Sicard's cousin):
Ardal MacArdry -- Malya McLain
+ Arthur MacArdry -- Alannah O'Beirne
+ Unknown
  + Autry MacArdry -- Gyladys
    + Caball MacArdry

Either way, Ardal has three grandsons (Caulay, Sicard, and Autry), and Caball is Ardal's great-grandson!

Thanks so much for sharing your fabulous finds! :-)

Over my dead body! Darcy Cameron wanted to declare, but he knew he could not.  It was a promise he could not keep.  The king’s will would be done whether he liked it or not.  Lady Aliset continued to stare at her horse’s mane, blushing in embarrassment at her sudden outburst.  Her inner turmoil pulled at Darcy’s heart more than he wanted to admit, and he found the blush, even though it spread across her brother’s visage, most appealing. 

He leaned closer and said quietly so only she could hear, “I’ll not abandon you, no matter what.  You won’t be alone to face whatever is to be.”  Aliset nodded and turned her gaze to the road ahead. 

It probably had not been the right thing to say, but he had felt the need to say something. Offer some comfort, no matter how small it might be.  Now that Darcy remembered his life before the sea, thanks to the lady who rode beside him, he might be a contender for her hand.  But only if he found his brother, if he still lived, and his brother acknowledged him.  Would he want to?  Darcy had been all but dead to him for over 12 years.  Maybe he would rather ship him back off to sea and have him out of his life.  By God there would be a fight if he tried it!

What if the king refused to consider him at all?  What if he couldn’t find his brother in time?  Could he stand by and watch her wed another?   Could he offer his congratulations and wish them well?

Maybe the sea wasn’t such a bad idea.

With his own thoughts in a turmoil, Darcy noticed the light was beginning to fade.  It would be well past dusk before they reached Arx Fedei; he hoped they would make it there before dark.

When you wrote about Alaric’s funeral cortege it reminded me of the week Princess Diana died and how everything seemed to be covered in a grey cloud. People lined up outside churches to light candles and write in books of condolence. Everything stopped for her funeral, the shops were closed and people lined the streets throwing white flowers under the wheels of the funeral car. As the procession  moved through London the bell of Westminster Abbey tolled every minute and of course there was not a dry eye as the two young princes walked behind the cortege. I can just see the scene in my mind's eye of the people of Gwynedd coming out to pay tribute to the Great Duke. I think that's how he would have become known -so different from the Deryni Duke, with its fearful overtones, of his youth.

One of the revelations I had was when I realized Lord Andrew McLain was the youngest of the Adelicia and Arnall's children. I kept wanting to have him as the oldest which kept me wondering why it was that Adelicia had no children between her marriage in 1022 and Andrew's birth in 1034. It dawned on me only this last week that Kenneth was born in 1046 and his mother, Madonna had to be born several years before her brother, Andrew. And Madonna was a second daughter. Suddenly it all fit. Which meant I had to completely rearrange the chart, that was interesting trying to make it all look readable. I realize this makes little deference to the scheme of things. But it was just one of those things that surprised me.

How fabulous! I had Adelcia and Arnall's marriage 20 Feb 1034 (source from the original Codex). The 20 Feb *1022* marriage (from Codex II) makes much more sense! As, of course, does your conjecture that Andrew has OLDER sisters, not YOUNGER sisters!

I really think Alaric would have hated having to see others ride out in his stead. To die heroically in the service of his beloved king whilst protecting his country -and remember Corwyn would have been most vulnerable and Alaric cared deeply for his people even when rhey were tempted to follow Warin in rebellion against him - would have surely been the death he would gave most chosen. And to take four of the Camberian Council with him would have been a great bonus.

Thanks for the explanation. I see what you are saying. Just wish he could have been a senior advisor, maybe not really able to readily ride out anymore. But he probably wouldn't have liked that much.
Also, poor Aliset. I hope Kelson will consider all she has gone through when he decides her future. He has always been a kind and caring monarch and I'm sure he will.

KK has killed off some very good characters herself.

Rhys, Javan, Camber (when he truly died), Evaine, and I'm sure there are many others as well.

The main reason is to focus the game storyline on the player characters so they are not overshadowed by any non player character such as Alaric Morgan, who would have the freedom to ride out and assist just as his heir is doing now. Kelson and Duncan can't really ride out at anytime as they have other duties that prevents them so they don't overshadow the main characters. I actually considered putting it further into the future where Kelson's son would be King so many of the old guard would be dead by age at least. But I didn't want to detail out that much information.

Laurna that was a very sad and moving story and beautifully done. I still don't understand why bynw wanted to kill Alaric. The game was supposed to be fun and exciting, not make us upset and sad. This really made me cry. I hope KK will write a sequel to KKB and tell us what really happened to our favorite characters and to Gwynedd
