I didn't see that ending coming either and then it just sort of happened, and I knew it was what it needed to be.

Thanks for your kind words.   :)

I was surprised at that ending too. I was thinking the one left would surrender but I can see why Vilmos made the choice he did. I would think that no one will be willing to serve Valerian. Just curious, in thinking about Valerian's escape, do we want to have Valerian removed on a semi permanent basis, maybe back to Byzantium.

Good addition to the game. I was surprised Vilmos killed himself, too. He was thinking positively about his chances with the Haldanes but must have been afraid to trust them, either. I think Valerian deserves to be executed.

I'm sure Kelson is pondering which of the gates of Laas he wants Valerian's head to decorate.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.

    as wax melts before the fire,

Hello Judywward. My suspicion is that Baron Vilmos has been a long time retainer of Grand Duke Valerian. Likely for decades. He may be loyal to Valerian by his own choice, or perhaps he owes Valerian a debt, say for saving his family and/or keeping them safe. Whatever his backstory may be,  Baron Vilmos would not be one to easily turn informant on the Grand Duke. He may have no love for Valerian, however Valerian does evoke loyalty among his men. Vilmos proved this by not turning on Valerian the moment he learned the Grand Duke had lost his powers. Therefore, surrendering to Prince Javan was out of the question. Vilmos did the only honorable choice left to him. As for Sir Georgios? Well, we shall never no. This is medieval war after all.

Hi DerynifanK, I don't see Valerian turning tail and running home to Byzantium. Not yet. Remember he has two older brothers who may not look at him too kindly after his failure at Laas. I am thinking that Valerian wants one thing right now and one thing only. And that is to get his powers back at any cost. And I will not speculate just how is plans to accomplish this feat.

Revanne, also would be the contemplations of Javan, Rory, Brecon and Kelric. And Wash would be gratefully in their debt if they succeed. ;)

Valerian can only get his powers back by one of the following things:

  • Wash restores his powers
  • Another blocker/healer is found in the 11 Kingdoms
  • A blocker/healer is found in Byzantium
  • A ritual is developed to restore his powers

I don't see #1 happening, the odds are highly against it at this point.
I don't see #2 happening, the number of healers are still very low in the 11 Kingdoms and have been for centuries, let alone another blocker showing up.
#3 is a possibility, but then Valerian would have to deal with his family who might just leave him blocked as a punishment
And lastly #4 is probably his best option. However it will take many months if not years to develop that Ritual and he will need a place to hang out until then. And someone might hire assassins to go after him.

Nice rounding off Laurna - it's good to have a storm on your side.

I did read your latest scene after you posted it, DerynifanK, but then we received the news about Jasta and I overlooked the fact that I had not commented. Nice job getting Valerian to Castleroo; too bad there was no tar to go with those feathers!   ;D

Haha, I am wondering what his man servent is daring to think, while cleaning up all those feathers. Now that he knows his lord is human and can no longer read his mind. I am thinking he is starting to think all kinds of independent thoughts that he had never thought before.

Good chapter DFK.

Well all I can say is Valerian isn't out of danger yet. He has to make it back home to be safe. Once there he will regain his powers eventually. Either another healer/blocker will surface and be able to restore him, or a ritual will be developed in a few years and restore him. But he has to get there first.

WOW! I would say that this is one heck of a birthday present for Jerusha. Not sure how much trouble Gregory Dunstan is going to get into, but he will have praise from Washburn when all is said and done.
A game changing scene, DFK.  Well done!

Yes, DFK, the loss of Valerian is the best gift ever (though Valerian may have a slightly different view of the matter).  Well done!
