Whoops, I think the portal backfired.  We have snow here too.

Bad news about the fires.

You have snow?! Fantastic! A White Christmas!
Stay warm.

Let's compare. California: We haven't seen much rain since last spring, with none in the forecast. 4 days of gale force winds. Yesterday the parking garage elevator was out due to the winds. I had to park on the fourth floor. Walking from there to the hospital was like walking through a wind tunnel on open throttle.   Today the winds have subsided and right now it is 79 degrees. I do hope the Fire fighters can get a handle on the big fires today.

Can you Portal over some of that Snow, Please.
Make an snow angle for me! 
One thing though, Please Drive Safe, safe, safe!

 It's hard for me to imagine a hot and humid Meara when there's ice and snow all around me right now. The view outside my window looks like Narnia! ;D

Good thought about the timings  Laurna.  We don't want any mishaps with those elastic roads.

The road between Culdi and Rhemuth was a well traveled road. By agreement between Kelson King of Gwynedd and Dhugal Duke of Cassan the road was kept in good repair after each winter’s thaw. The full distance could be traversed as fast as three days.* Such as traveling day and night, not caring that he broke his steed doing so.  A more leisure travel, taking care to rest their mounts each night, could take a full week.+ There were a few noble houses along the way from whom hospitality could be requested.  Washburn was certain their small number would not be refused. Also sleeping under the stars on these warm summer nights should not be a hardship.

The hardship was there was a young woman in their midst, whom the others thought to be a man. How to keep her from being pushed beyond her capabilities without giving her secret away. The best answer was a priest of middle years who had likely not been in a saddle for days on end since his youth.

“Father Columcil  would you please lead us at a good pace for monks on a journey. Master Darcy, I’ll ask that you stay up front also so as to keep us on the right road.” He and Aliset followed close behind.  In this way the energies of the two noble mounts would be tempered to a steady pace, rather than run full out to Rhemuth as Wash would have allowed, were he alone.

((Foot notes:
 * The Kings Deryni Chapter Six. A messenger traveled from Culdi to Rhemuth in three days to bring news of Duke Andrews illness.
+  same chapter: Llion escorted the youths Alaric and Duncan from Rhemuth to Culdi at an easy pace  taking seven days.

I am using these travel times rather than the unreasonable travel time of Duke Alaric and Father Duncan traveling from Dhessa to Culdi in only three days. as is seen in Deryni Checkmate))

Morning Revanne.
Yes you may, as we all seem to have done it so far. Just try to keep it in character.
I am just in the process of posting a short addition. I hope this does not interfere with what you are writing.

And now it is posted. And I am going to bed.
Good Night Revanne.   ;D

This one is meant to be here.

Is it allowed to put small buts of dialogue in the mouths of other characters ?obviously they won't  be the focus of the scene, and would be in character.

Darcy Cameron mounted his horse more awkwardly than usual; he was not used to monk’s robes!  Father Columcil mounted more smoothly, likely due to many more years of practice.  Darcy was stuck with the disguise for now, so he might as well get on with it.  Once they were out of sight of others on the road, he could toss the hood back out of his way.  He did not like the way it restricted his side vision.

Not that it was a perfect disguise for their party.  Sir Washburn’s fine mount with its red leather bridle was hardly suited to a poor monk!  Lord Alister’s mare, while not as flashy, was still finely bred.  Nevertheless, to most travellers on the road, who had no reason to look more closely, they would pass as brethren out on whatever errand the church had sent them.

The sky was almost cloudless; it would be a warm day as they travelled.  A good breeze would be welcome, but so far there was no sign of one.  Darcy turned his horse to ride beside the others out from the monastery’s courtyard.

He took note of the people going about their daily tasks as they departed.  Just in case one of them would appear again along the way.

Aliset stifled an all-too-girlish giggle at Darcy's stubborn defiance.  Traveling out of doors with his woolen hood up in the heat and humidity of a Mearan summer, he was likely to wilt like day-old spinach! She hadn't meant to cause such consternation in her attempt to make her own disguise seem more believable, but she'd take what few occasions for humor she could find just now.  God knows she needed whatever boosts to her spirit she could get!

Following the priest's lead, she headed out to the stables to find her mare Papillon and saddle her for the journey ahead.
