Just the right touch! Who knows what awaits our young heroes in the cover of Arx Fidie? Is that how you spell it?

Almost.  It's Arx Fidei, which is Latin for "Citadel* of the Faith."

*As always with translation, there are several other possible meanings, but fortress, bulwark, stronghold, and castle are some of the other meanings for the word "arx," but they all have similar meanings.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Jurusha, will you thank Darcy for the kind words about Washburn's character. The positivity is promising. I hope Iain will relate to the king that all is not yet lost for the youngest son of Alaric.
My heart goes to Lady Aliset. Her family may now rest in peace.

Somehow I can't find much sympathy for the Captain.  He may suddenly find himself overboard if he does not watch his back most carefully.

Well done, revanne!

Great prologue Revanne. Almost, I could feel sorry for the captain, almost but not quite. Such is the fate of those who choose to serve someone like Valerian.

DerynifanK, Great opening to the siege of Laas. Valerian is so over confident in his minions. To bad he doesn't have his powers to reinforce that confidence.

Revanne, That Captain is not having a good week. Too bad the winds are no longer in his favor. Thank you for a view of the enemy.

Thank you to Laurna, who helped with medieval sieges and engines and thank you to Evie, from whom I always learn a lot about Medieval life and times. Both of you helped make the scene much better. I will try to keep visions of LOTR out of my head when thinking about medieval battles and sieges.

and a view from the otherside ...

Lord Valerian will be triumphant and he will overcome all the odds against him because his quest is justice and righteous. The Draper usurpers stole the Haldane name from the grave and brought down the great House of Festil that had ruled over Gwynedd for generations. Likewise they stole the Mearian throne from it's rightful heir. The Drapers are nothing but power mad thieves.

The Grand Duke doesn't need his Deryni powers. Truth will prevail and set Meara and Gwynedd free from the Draper scourge who have destroyed the old Haldane legacy with their adaptation of the name.

Nice additions! The plot thickens! I don't think Valerian should lean too heavily on God and the Saints to help him.

In fairness it was Nikloi who called on the Archangels and who could blame him, caught, as he is, between the devil and the deep blue sea. Whether he will like it if they answer is a different matter.
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 it, Jerusha. You are amazing at creating dialog. It's almost as if one is there. Poor Kelson must be really frustrated, especially with what he sees as over protectiveness by his nobles and his council.  And Iain is being rather sneaky about what he might do if they hear from Feyd in the king's absence.
Did Iain pass on to the king what Darcy said about Washburn? They have all tended to undervalue him, including Duncan,the king, and even his mother..

Wonderful piece of writing Jerusha, I love Iain's careful noting of precisely what he promised. Something I have used myself when dealing with authority...
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.

Not during this exchange, but I am certain he would have reported it to the king earlier, and with the king's permission, to Richenda.
