Game Information

Cuendillar MUSH is a science-fiction/fantasy game based loosely on Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series. In book two, The Great Hunt, and in Robert Jordan's The World of the Wheel of Time, there are objects called Portal Stones that allow travel into differing dimensions, times, and even planets.

Cuendillar is one of those dimensional worlds, with its own unique story and histories. Because of this, you may see plotlines that resemble those in the books, but you will not see characters from the books ever played here; with the exception of Forsaken, who will be used for various plotting elements.

If you are familiar with the storyline, you will note that the various timeline aspects of our game do not follow the books, and in fact we've had several deviant plots. Included in this set of pages are various bits and pieces of information which you should find helpful in getting to know the game and what we're all about - as well as finding a place to settle down.

Cuendillar MUSH is operated with the permission of Robert Jordan.

All players should read: A Letter from Robert Jordan

Current Events

Andoran War of Succession

Please note the posts following this section detail the events that lead up to what will be the Andoran War of Succession. Read here to find out how this affects the players of Cuendillar:

Andor & You

In the next several weeks, I will be GMing the conflict thats growing in Andor. During this plot, players will have every opportunity to take risks, get involved, and help determine the outcome of whats to come in Andor. There are no right or wrong answers, and there are no scripted endings. Rolls will be used to determine the luck or success of the plot. Aeline may become Queen, or someone else may be crowned in her place. Choices, hard choices, will have to be made. And, while ICly, there will be winning and losing, and triumphs and downfalls for the characters, as players, OOCly you win. For you will get the opportunity to tell a great story, and tell it well.

Normally, I do not post as a precursor to any plot that I intend to do. However, I feel in this case, I need to make such a post. In the past, when weve done huge game changing events either allowing actions to happen through the hands of the players, such as Nessas death in Cairhien, or through bigger events weve wanted to GM ourselves, staff has faced criticism for not being open about what was happening. So, Im laying things bare before you.

A War of Succession is coming to Andor. The seeds of it have already been planted. Players interested in such a plot are welcomed and encouraged to either take characters off the roster or bring their alts to Andor to participate. Well need players on both sides of the war, those for Aeline as Queen, and those against Aeline as Queen. Even if we do not get players against Aeline I will be GMing the NPCs and their reactions. I have laid out the motivations of each House is.

There will be conflict. It will be dirty. It will be gritty. It will be dangerous for anyone who gets involved. Especially those who are set non-consent, which means there can and will be death involved. This will not be slice of life RP. There will be GMd battles, and there will be global emits. As players, you will have to make a choice how invested you wish to get involved in the conflict. But, regardless of whether or not players take interest or involve themselves even if it is just BBposts to an empty game the plot will commence. It is my hope that it will commence with those who would prefer to make a difference, rather than those who will just simply let things happen. Come take the wild, and crazy ride with me.

I will be posting ways that you can get involved a bit later today. In the meantime, to allow people time to prepare, get alts in place, pick a side, take characters off the roster and get their feet wet, the GMing will not start taking place until Saturday, April 2nd. If you are going to be in Andor for this conflict, be prepared to pick a side.

If you choose to pick a player off the roster from Houses Lothievia or Demmar (characters to be CGd by this weekend), you are choosing to stand against House Murellan and with the opposing factions.

How War Works

For the War of Succession, I am adopting a GMing style from another game that I play, called Resolution Day. Each player may make 1 @request for Resolution Day, and that request may only involve one plan of action for that particular Resolution Day. If your plan of action includes military movement, be sure to have at least 1 player character (PC) that's going to support you or lead your troops, and be certain to include them in the request.

If your request has actions that would include another player, you will need to check with that player to ensure that they are with you; for if that player submits a seperate request with different actions that have been anticipated or discussed, that player's request will be honored over yours. Be sure to be on the same page with one another!

For instance, John Doe is going to invade the lands held from House Lareca, and Joe Schmoe is his go to person for doing this. John submits a request outlining his plan on how he wants to try to invade House Lareca's property, and what he hopes to gain, noting Joe Schmoe is going to do the work. Joe Scmoe's dice will be used in this instance to complete this task.

I will roll for the results, and I will announce them to the game in the GM style that I used when exposing the deaths that occured recently in the White Tower. These emits will also post to Board 14, for players to read who missed the events themselves.

Please note, a single player may only have one alt involved in the war at a time. Your other alts may be in Caemlyn to participate and get involved in other ways, but only one character on your alts list may actively influence events in Caemlyn.

Your character's actions matter. Make them count. Include other players. Make allies. Recruit people as supporters.

This is not the only GM style that I'll be using. I will be doing some short scenes with players, and doing some face to face combat with players as well; time and schedule permitting. Most of this will occur on weekends because my weekday life is hectic.

Most importantly, please be patient with me as we collectively try something new to bring a great story together for everyone presently playing in Andor.

What High Seats Can Do

t is important to understand that Resolution Days do not equate to IC game days, but days that I GM the war going in Andor. Also, realize, War is /expensive/. Each house will be given an allowance. Once they run out of money, they will either need to beg, borrow or steal from other houses - or your troops will start abandoning you and join the Houses that can pay for them.

In the case of NPC houses/alliances - you can @request once a resolution week, that's not part of Resolution Day, to see if you can make a deal to broker an alliance or borrow money for your cause.

Each house starts with 1,000 of their available troops on hand and ready to move around. Those within the city do not cost you anything extra. These are the people that are within Caemlyn. Each house may only gather up to 2,000 troops per Resolution Day, at a cost of 2,000 gold.

Houses can move move up to 2,000 troops per Resolution Day. Doing so will cost them 2,000 gold in expenses per Resolution Day they are not home. Moving them back will also cost 2,000 gold. This is a public action. People will know you're moving troops because fields will no longer be worked, or cities and towns will no longer be defended. Troop movements count as your action! If you move troops, you may not do anything else this Resolution Day. However, you can have someone else put in an action if you want your already gathered troops in Caemlyn to do something.

Houses with relatives in Cairhien may move 2,000 troops per Resolution Day. It will cost 2,000 gold per Resolution Day movement, and it takes 2 Resolution Days for those troops to travel through Cairhien, and through Andor, to get to Caemlyn. The chose of these troops goes up 2,000 gold for each Resolution Day they are in play, for no more than 4,000 gold a Resolution Day until they return to Cairhien.

Houses may purchase up to 1,000 mercenaries per Resolution Day. Each mercenary purchased costs 3 gold, for a total of 3,000 gold if the full allotment is purchased. After they are mustered, they will cost 4,000 gold to maintain per Resolution Day. Purchasing mercenaries is your action for Resolution Day if you choose to do this! However, you may get someone to move around your already gathered troops with a separate request.

Each Resolution Day, actively played High Seats can either purchase or gather new troops, or do an action. One or the other, unless they delegate an action to a designated person; a general, military leader, strategist, etc. Designates can only be played PCs. NPCs and Rostered Characters may not be delegated to this purpose.

Players who are not part of houses, but want to support other houses, may do so. They may not, however, purchase or gather troops. Only High Seats can do this.

You are also not limited to doing things in Caemlyn. If you move troops, it can be to the land of other Houses, so as to sabotage things on their home front. So, anything goes; so long as it's within the bounds of the rules above, and in the post: How War Works.

The following are the starting Military Numbers for each house, those marked with a * have relatives in Cairhien they can ask for aid. All except the starting 1,000 troops designated for each house in Caemlyn above are stationed in their House lands within Andor and may be moved as outlined above:

  • Buchannan 8,000
  • Choswen * 8,500
  • Demmar * 8,000
  • Lareca 6,000
  • Lotheivia 9,500
  • Murellan 10,000
  • Risden 7,500
  • Roesone 8,000
  • Thaeweth 9,500

Resolution Day Deadline

The first Andoran Succession Resolution Day will be on April 1st (not a joke!). All requests for action should be in by Friday, April 1, 2011 at 11:59 pm. Any requests after this date or time will be denied. So, make sure to get them in at the appropriate time! This has been added to the @cal for your convenience.

Andor in Gemeral

Andor Mourns the Queen

8 Amadaine, 1022

News travels around Caemlyn that the royal family has a public statement to make. When the time arrives, the Prince Consort, Vincent Brighton, husband to Queen Elisian Murellen, comes to stand before the crowd. His face is a mask of absolute stoicism, except for his eyes, which hold a deep, profound sadness. Even then, at that very moment he is supposed to address the crowd, he needs a minute or two to keep himself composed before he speaks.

"People of Andor, I come to you today on a day that should be most joyous for a husband, but it is with great sadness that I speak to you today. My wife, Queen Elisia Murellan, By the Grace fo the Light, Queen of Andor, Defender of the Realm, Protector of the People, High Seat of House Murellen gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. We have named her Daella. However, this joyous news was shadowed with the passing of the Queen, who did not survive her birth. I ask that you all mourn for your Queen, and the House Murellan. Upon her deathbed, her wishes were clear. Our daughter, Lady Aeline Murellan, is hereby recalled from her training to Andor to take the mantle of her birth, to become the next Queen of Andor, and our son, Galavan, to become the First Prince of the Sword."

Unable to say more than those words to the people, who he is certain will spread the word to Tar Valon and the White Tower, he withdraws within the Palace; secluding himself for the traditional mourning period until the funeral is to take place.

Funeral Speech for Elisia

21 Maigdhal, 1022

Vincent steps forward, after others have had their opportunity to speak. He gazes around the courtyard, looking at those who are most forefront, but without really looking at them at all. His gaze is distant, forlorn. After a small silence, he speaks.

"My wife, she was a headstrong woman." Vincent begins, "When she got an idea in her head, she took it to heart to complete that idea herself." A soft smile plays at the side of his lips for only the briefest of moments before he continues, "Elisia would never give anyone a task that she could not bear to do herself, which sometimes often left me to do some of the more difficult things; but that never affected our marriage. She was a woman of great compassion and courage. Some might think that she leaned on me for her strength, but there they were wrong. I leaned on her." He pauses, licking his lips a moment before he prepares to move on.

Vincent's expression grows more serious as he continues, "She trusted me with many things. Her life, her love, her children, and more importantly, her country." He clasps his hands before him, allowing his gaze once more to roam the crowd, though he keeps his expression carefully controlled, unreadable. "I do not ever know a time that I had been more frightened in my life than the first time she put the reins in my hand. For, Andor was hers, and she its mother. I did not, for the lack of better words, want to screw things up; which was a difficult task, as Andor does not accept men as rulers." His gaze goes over to Aeline as he finishes speaking, then moves on to someone else, "But, never-the-less, I filled her shoes, with assurances to the people that she would return, and always she would. Always." His words trail off, but he does not give the impression he's done yet.

"Elisia wanted the people to know that she loved them," Vincent remarks, his voice more softly spoken now, "as if they were her own children. She also wanted them to know that it was her wish that her daughter, Aeline Murellan, take her place as Queen." His attention once more goes to Aeline as he speaks, and stays there for some time. "It was her hope, her desire, that the people would embrace Aeline as they had her. This was her dying wish, for she knew this time she would not be able to return. She loved the people of Andor as she loved her own children, putting Andor above all else, even her personal desires and ambitions. She was, and ever will be, Queen Elisia Nalia Murellan, By the Grace of the Light, Queen of Andor, Defender of the Realm, Protector of the People, High Seat of House Murellan."

And with that, he is finished. He grows quiet, and steps back and signals to the guards to set the funeral pyre ablaze.

The Public Stirs

9 Choren, 1022

It has been sometime since Queen Elisia has been put to rest, but still no word comes from the Palace, or the Daughter-Heir, about the intentions for the throne. There is some worry establishing itself among the people. Already, it was clear that not all Great Houses supported House Murellan, for neither the Heads of House nor the members of Houses Lothievia, Risden and Lareca were seen during the funeral. Some are beginning to wonder whether or not House Lothievia is working to make a claim for the throne.

While Andor is not known for the Game of Thrones, already the other Great Houses are taking stock of themselves, and counting their lines; not to be outbid by House Lotheivia should they make a claim. For, Elisia while may have named Aeline as the next Queen, she still must be accepted as Queen by the Houses of Andor to lawfully rule as such.

The people wait, and watch carefully, to see what will come of the Lion Throne of Andor, for already their nation has been left without someone to truly rule them for too long.

House Buchannan Speaks Out

9 Choren, 1022

Lord Quinlan Buchannan stands among a crowd of people. There are some fellow Queen's Guards presents, fellow Nobles, Commoners and all others that he's gathered to listen. He begins to speak:

"Greetings, Lords Ladies, fellow Queens Guardsmen and Fellow Citizens and guests of the nation of Andor and City of Caemlyn. While some of you may know that House Buchannan and the throne of Andor have maintained relationship for sometime in various areas and ways, many here today may not know that Queen Elisia and my Mother, the High Seat of House Buchannan Lady Khyra Buchannan, were the best of friends. In fact, unfortunately their attempts failed but I believe on at least one occassion if not more than one, they may have attempted to arrange a marriage for me. However, sadly nothing has came to fruition of that. Although that is not why I am speaking today. My family and myself have always supported Queen Elisia's Decisions and thus support her decision before she died to have the Daughter-heir assume her rightful role as our leader. Therefore, let it be known, that House Buchannan supports the Daughter-Heir in her duties to ascend to the Rightful role that was designated for her by her late mother, that of Queen of the Nation of Andor. Long may she live, and long may she rule."

With that he quietens down his voice. There's a bit of respectful applause and he smiles and quietens them "Any who wish to voice their support, gathered here today, may go to any tavern or inn in the city and country and receive one free drink on House Buchannan as well." He then finally quietens and looks to some of the people nearby and talks to them in a quieter voice as well.

Chowen Silent

3 Shaldine, 1022

Since the funeral procession honoring the passing of Queen Elisia, House Choswen has kept largely to itself, and holds its hand of political cards close to the breast for the time being. There have been no official statements from Lady Irinya, House Choswen's High Seat, and rumor indicates that none will be forthcoming anytime in the near future. The silence from House Choswen could mean anything, especially given the High Seat's blatant display of full support for Aeline after the funeral.

Perhaps the silence is meant to indicate that there is nothing else further to say. It could also mean that the Great House is taking a 'wait-and-see' approach to see what develops. Others speculate that there are other things going on behind the scenes that have yet to be brought to light. There has been some indication that the Lady Belya has been in contact with the Daughter-Heir, but Lady Irinya herself has been decidedly absent from any such meetings, and rumors suggest that perhaps the High Seat is currently unwell and has taken to her bed in grief over the passing of her close friend the Queen. There are those who scoff at such rumors, however, insisting it is one of her Daes Dae'mar ploys learned from her Cairhienin kin.

Daughter-Heir Moves

19 Shaldine, 1022

After allowing for more than enough emotional and political time for the Andoran population to recover after the fiery funeral for her Mother, to grieve the loss to the nation, Aeline can finally be seen to take more conclusive political action in putting forth her claim to the Lion Throne.

Aeline Olivia Murellan, at this time High Seat of House Murellan, sent out Royal Heralds across the realm to read that which seems written by one with high poetic drama in the prose, stating heart-felt words as she proclaims her rightful place as heir to her Mother's throne. On many the Common's billet, a copy of the words have been posted for those that can read what was writ. Was it only coincidence that a number of the recitals of the prepared speech took place just outside the residences of House Risden, House Lareca and House Lothievia? Those Houses who had been unquestionably and notably, absent at the funeral pyre for Queen Elisia?

Others in the populace can be overheard declaring their support of the young woman, a well-thought of person about Caemlyn until she had been sent to the White Tower as was tradition, saying that those Royal Heralds could have been heard equally outside the Great Houses of those who have long supported the Daughter-Heir as well as those who are of uncertain leanings. And oft times she was allowed to return to Caemlyn, so Aeline was never really out of touch with the ongoing events in the capital city.

There has been a steady stream of any number of personages to take audience with the eminent Daughter-Heir at the Caemlyn Palace, but the verbal exchanges have only so far been witnessed by the reserved and tight-lipped Royal guards. Perhaps Aeline has been speaking to the constant stream of visitors to determine where and who the questionable factors will be in the succession crisis she senses is on the horizon. Thus far, the entirety of the traffic has been to the Palace, none by the Daughter-Heir making trips to descend upon any of the High Seats who make up the Council of Houses that ultimately determines who will be their next Queen. Definitely, some suspicious or shadowy implications can be observed from the aftermath of the Queen's untimely demise and the unqualified lack of support from other controversial quarters.

(NOTE: Now is a very good time to claim a noble within Andor to take part in the Great Game and the RP activity that will be happening in Caemlyn!)

Andoran Division

19 Shaldine, 1022

It has been months after the Prince Consort called for his daughter to attend to his mother's deathbed, before she passed away. It was months more before he recalled her home, and waited to schedule the funeral, before he eventually just scheduled it without her, hoping she would return home. And, since that time, it has been months since Aeline has said what she wanted to do with regards to Andor.

The Great Houses of Andor have been watching the slow progression of the Daughter-Heir's responsiveness to the calls and pleas from her own family, and later that of Andor to take her rightful position, and it has left them wondering. So, too, has it left the common people of the city wondering. Their collective thoughts are almost shared, almost - though not entirely, for it would be too unseemly for them to be too closely shared. But, the long and the short of it is, they wonder... Why?

Why should they settle for Lady Aeline, the daughter of Queen Elisia, as their Queen? She who has been so slow to respond to her family in their time of need. She who has been so slow to respond to the nation in their time of mourning? Why should they give over their trust to this young, untried woman who did not come to them at their time of greatest need, but instead waited? Even as her Heralds filter around the streets, there is a great stirring among the Houses; and not just Houses Lareca, Lothievia and Risden.

Already, House Demmar has been counting its lines and roots back to Ishara, and are gleeful to see that they at least possess the blood of Ishara. Then there is House Thaeweth, a long supporter of the Lion Throne, and perhaps Queen Elisia, though their support has always been for the Throne itself and what it represents - who also holds ties to Queen Ishara. Perhaps stronger, even, than that of House Murellan. Yet, unlike House Demmar, they say nothing of who they will represent.

While Houses Choswen and Bucannan have announced to back Aeline for Queen, the only other Great House at this particular time to do so is House Roesone, another long time supporter. The other houses remain silent on the matter, for now.

It is difficult to say which way this will go. Aeline may rise to the throne she was destined to hold, or another house may rise to that honor.

Choswen Choices

19 Shaldine, 1022

There can be no doubt that, from the day of Elisia's funeral, House Choswen's loyalties have been clear. Irinya Choswen's open display of respect for Aeline, and Elisia's wishes that her daughter inherit the Lion Throne, have likely not been lost upon those who are attentive to the subtleties of Daes Dae'mar. While the High Seat has not spoken her intentions in so many words, it has long been known that she was a close advisor to Elisia, and a close friend as well. Her support for House Murellan, the House of her husband Grant, and the current ruling House of Andor remains staunch by all accounts.

While other Houses are researching their family lineage in search of ties to the blood of Ishara, House Choswen appears to be preparing to defend Aeline's right to the Lion Throne, and it is no longer a secret. There are a few as-yet-unfounded rumors that the House is already starting to muster its militia in preparation for the worst. The great question which should be on everyone's minds, perhaps, is whether or not House Choswen will remain steadfast in its support of Aeline's right to the Throne, or take this opportunity to involve its Cairhienin cousins in an effort to reunite House Pelarwen and House Choswen into the great House Wenarvin it once was, when it spanned lands that are now a part of both Andor and Cairhien. Perhaps it is all one of those sneaky Daes Dae'mar ruses, this apparent support of Aeline, while in reality, perhaps Irinya Choswen is preparing for a grand coup with the aid of her Pelarwen cousins to place one of her own children on the Lion Throne.

As yet, there is no evidence of this, and such attempts have failed in the past due to agreements between the monarchs of those two nations. Still, it may be a concern among those who have opposed House Choswen in matters in the past, and those Cairhienin ties, some say, should not be ignored in the grand scheme of things. While House Demmar has a similar tie to Cairhien, it does not have the benefit of having ties with Cairhien's current ruling House. An advantage for House Choswen, should it choose to test the strength of those family bonds. A War of Succession, should it happen, could easily become a war between nations should Zakhar Pelarwen choose to take an interest in affairs, and should Irinya Choswen seek the aid of her Pelarwen cousins.

White For The Daughter-Heir

15 Nesan, 1022

Coats, cockades, and sashes of white have begun appearing throughout Caemlyn, with the wearers proclaiming broadly that their bearing of the color of mourning--and one of Andor's colors--is a statement of support for the Daughter-Heir Aeline, referencing the wishes of the late, lamented Queen Elisia as to who should succeed her.

Meetings in the Night

25 Nesan, 1022

As turmoil spreads through out Andor.Rumors rise and die away.Some say Belya Choswen and Vincent Murellan met at private dinner in Royal palace. Lady heir of choswen and First prince of Andor and dawger husband of disease queen.

What should it mean,some say marriage was mentioned with the names of daughter heir and prince occuring through the lines. And also the unusual couple enjoyed deeply their company and each other. With First prince escorting lady Belya to palace doors as personal gesture of friendship and impression. As resolution seems soon to appear,factions starts to make their moves it seems. And Vincent Murellan seems wedded to see his child on Andor throne.

An Autumn Stroll

25 Nesan, 1022

Even with men and women taking on the colors of red and white in support of their various factions for or against Aeline, it doesn't seem to have stopped Lady Choswen and her one-eyed husband, Grant Choswen, from enjoying a walk together in the autumn air. It is said that they walked arm-in-arm, to settle at some tables set up outside the Rose and Lion Inn, where they chatted for a time, before being approached by a common man with a wagon.

At first, it looked like the Choswen guard escort were about to draw swords on the unsuspecting fellow, a testament to the rising tensions in the city, but then it became an amiable exchange of handshakes and cordial words. A Choswen guard was seen to escort the man with the wagon to his destination 'for his protection in the city', while the noble couple departed to resume their evening stroll, smiling at one another like two cats who each felt they had received a bowl of cream.

Strange Meetings?

27 Nesan, 1022

Late last evening, some would swear on the Light they saw a person looking very much like the Daughter-Heir in the Common Room of the Rose and Lion Inn, before she left her tea and fresh bread to speak with the innkeeper to whom she handed a note. She was not seen again, but two of the Royal Guards shadowed her every step of the way, all evening long until she was seen back at the Palace a few hours later. It seems she spoke to several people in the Common Room before she went off on other matters. It was unusual to see her at the Inn, but people seemed friendly enough, until she spoke with that man with the unusual golden eyes at a table as if she knew him beforehand. Before that she had been in conversation with Ethen Thaeweth, who was later seen playing dice and keeping an eye also on the young woman for the longest time, despite the fun with his men.

Pre-Resolution Day Emits

Listed in the link below are the story mood emits before we begin the official Resolution Day.

Before the Storm (Emits Prior to First Resolution Day)

Patterns in the Wheel

3 Danu, 1022

As news of different factions claiming aligiance,neutrality or the lion'throne spread over Caemlyn and andor. In the shadows and among the commotion.Certain people did certain things. First Vincent Murelan was seen practicing in palace with the young Ethen of Twaeweth,acknowledging his skills at the end,infront of the eyes of Quinlan Buchannan, before leaving with the same man giving him orders said to be contradictory at least.

To round a bisy day the first prince of sword was later seen in a private conversation under the stars with an Ogier in result of which the towering being is said to be now permanent guest of the prince itself and the royal family in the Royal castle.+bbproof

Chaos At Court

3 Danu, 1022

It all seemed to start out innocently enough. Messengers were seen to pass between House Choswen and the Royal Palace within the space of an hour. A flurry of activity shortly ensued, in which a gathering of the Daughter-Heir's supporters were seen to assemble in the Grand Hall of the Royal Palace. What started out as an audience with House Choswen and a pair of mercenaries, one rumored to be a Blademaster, the other a -woman-, soon turned into a full-blown Court session.

Which Houses were represented? It is difficult to say. Some insist that it was originally intended to be an attempt for Aeline's supporters to come to some sort of accord. House Choswen was present, yes, and were soon joined by Ethen Thaeweth, and later, Quinlan Buchannan was seen to enter the Grand Hall as well. Last but certainly not least, Vincent, Andor's own Prince General and former Consort to Queen Elisia, was seen to stride into the Grand Hall in full regalia, accompanied by a regiment of Queen's Guards.

Rumors really began to fly then. What could possibly be going on behind those great doors? Perhaps it was merely an innocent meeting of the minds. Then again, perhaps Lady Choswen was called to account for the movements of troops upon her lands, and Prince Vincent was there to see that justice might be done for treason. But no! It was worse than that. Some say that the Prince General had gone stark raving mad, and managed to insult everyone present, including his own daughter.

Whatever the case may be, the meeting, by all accounts, certainly did not end well. Indeed, it ended with Lady Choswen escorting her family, husband Grant and daughter Belya, from the Grand Hall with her face as dark as a thunderhead, and as cold as winter. What now will Andor's fate be, if this is true? Has House Choswen completely withdrawn its support for the Daughter-Heir? Have the events of one evening managed to unravel years of support and friendship between House Choswen and House Murellan? Only time will tell. Meanwile, it leaves open the possibility that those others vying for the Lion Throne could seek to court the support of what has been, until now, most certainly one of House Murellan's strongest allies.

More Court Happenings

5 Danu, 1022

It is said that there may have been attempt by Lord Quinlan Buchannon to withdraw support untill he heard from his mother High Seat of House Buchannan, Duchess Khyra Buchannan. However some rumors say he said he would support them. Others may even say he said he'd gladly do the rear kicking of his younger twin sister himself. Others perhaps a bit more untrustworthy may say many more wild things but whatever happened after the specatacle with the Choswens, there were not the only house to be in question as the Buchannans were as well. Some may say this was all a ploy by the Buchannans to not be outdone by the Choswens in /any/ aspect.

Mercenary Mayhem

5 Danu, 1022

Nobles have not been the only ones speaking with the Daughter-Heir in the Palace. Mercenaries have been seen coming and going as well, no doubt descending upon Andor like vultures upon a weakened animal. Reliable rumors even tell of a showdown between two such mercenaries, Termiane Koronel and Aloysia Teranor, and the Captain-General of the Queen's Guard himself, First Prince of the Sword Vincent Brighton. Whispers spread that the Captain-General insulted the two mercenaries, claiming that House Murellan did not need mercenaries to hold Andor. This in the face of two experienced sell-swords who claimed to be able to gather a thousand blades to the cause of whichever House they contracted with. Has the widowed Prince Consort's words lost House Murellan the services of so many swords? Will they fight the brewing war--if it boils over--without any mercenary blades? Or did the mercenaries get above themselves, requesting titles of nobility in exchange for their services, and were put in their place by the First Prince?

A Flurry of Messages

7 Danu, 1022

Some of the more observant might notice that there has been a flurry of messages passed between House Choswen and the Royal Palace. First, gossips reported that a messenger was sent from the Palace with letters in hand addressed to several personages of House Choswen. Then, two messages were sent back to the Royal Palace via a courier in Choswen livery. Another messenger was sent to House Choswen, and then a final messenger from House Choswen returned to the Palace with another letter in hand around the dinner hour.

Who those letters have been addressed to is unclear. After the flurry of messages ended, there was seen to be no more contact between House Choswen and the Royal Palace, and the High Seat, once a regular visitor to the Palace, is said to have not left her estate since the day she stormed out of the Grand Hall with family in tow.

First Prince Replaced

7 Danu, 1022

Today, the Daughter-Heir and now High Seat of House Murellan has officially remove the title of First Prince from her father, Vincent Brighton and given it to her oldest brother, the now reigning First Prince, Galavan Murellan. Thusly removing Vincent Brighton from any further control of the Queen's Guards he previously held because of his untowards actions the other night when he descended, unwelcomedly, into a private meeting Lady Aeline was holding with a pair of mercenaries she intended on hiring. At the same time, Vincent Murellan was highly guilty of thoroughly insulting her best friend, Lady Irinya Choswen, her husband Grant Choswen and their adotpive daughter Belya Choswen. The diatribes did not end there, he lamblasted his son Galavan and his first daughter, Lady Aeline Olivia Murellan. Such action will not be tolerated in the Palace or in Caemlyn.
