493: Ghosts and Black Dogs

Sven brought a bottle of homemade (and 54-proof!) mead, so I'm sure the quotes were flying. I just don't remember any.

Sir Padern here...The common folk are making trouble for the Duke about what they see as our betrayal of Merlin, so he sent us away for the summer on some busy-work. He recalled us, however, to fight the Saxons under Octa and Eosa outside Caister. I had a good harvest. Lady Freesia bore me a daughter. My sister Lady Beatrice died.

492: High Crimes

—I just want to be a Candlebee.

Sir Padern here...

That's the last time we agree to help Merlin. We are resolved on it, even the pagan.

The Queen wants us dead.

491: The Prince Dies

Quotes? Not a chance!

Sir Padern here...

That horny goat of a knight knocked my sister Beatrice up during the festivities that followed Sir Idar marrying my sister the Lady Estelle. That'll cost me (and him!), and I'm already out 6L to Idar for sis, and the cost of my own wedding to Lady Freesia. All on top of a bad harvest and the Duke practically eating me out of house and hall.

Oh, and we accompanied the Duke to Cornwall at the King's request and watched Uther betray a vassel and cause the death of Prince Maddoc.
