3.11: Queen Charlotte and her chosen companions depart Tal Volorro toward Kingsport where they will take a royal ship and escorts toward Trimeris.

3.12: Prince Jason's court at Summerhall leaves to travel south to Tal Volorro. They are gathering some spring taxes on behalf of the king's household which delays them a couple days on the road.

3.16: Queen Charlotte's company arrive in Kingsport.

3.17: The Summerhall contingent arrives in Tal Volorro. They make camp outside the city walls as it will be easier than sorting out the accomodations in the castle for most of them. In Kingsport, Queen Charlotte and her company sail with the morning tide.

3.18: The King's Court sets off from Tal Volorro to begin collecting Spring Taxes, survey the land, bolster morale, hear cases requiring royal judgment, and probably indulge in a few tourneys here and there.
Travel to Delving. (3 days) (Very Strong Winds Along the Way - Makes Setting Camp and Lighting Fires Difficult)
Stay at/near: Honeywell (House Beesley, 3.18), Lumberton (House Oakmont, 3.19), some hamlet too tiny for a name- the pavilions are pitched by the road (domain of Ser Deziel Marbarrow, 3.20)

3.23-3.25: DELVING TOURNEY. 23 (Swords/Archery), 24 (Melee), 25 (Joust)

3.26: Lord Ryan Seyfert has Lady Zanara Solvitreo arrested and put into the Edelinan Tower. She is freed by Rhaegar Vayth and Thane Voldryn, reinforced by the arrival of Lord Gaiseric Harrowmont. Prince Jason intervenes to stop the ensuing brawl between Seyfert and Vellfyre men. The king orders Lord Ryan and his priests arrested and imprisoned in their own tower that same afternoon. That evening he summons all the lords present to witness his investiture of Ryan's son as Lord Seyfert, and sentencing Ryan to live in the tower. The Solvitreos take matters into their own hands, and Lady Tyana and Ser Darres set the tower on fire, resulting in the deaths of the priests and Ryan Seyfert.

3.27: Rothgar, having announced that Tyana's dower will be forfeit as bloodgilt for the crime against their host, also oversees a duel between Ser Darres and Lord Kyle Seyfert's champion. Darres loses, and is badly wounded.

3.28: The court leaves Delving for Mirrormount. Stays that night near Stonemark with House Carvell.

3.29: A hailstorm hits as the court travels toward Ashmark. Players will roll for injury to characters, horses, retinue, etc. (Damage results here)

3.30-3.31: The court straggles into Ashmark, getting repairs made to wheelhouses and replacing horses. They are met by House Harrowmont, with Gavin and Kalden Vellfyre.

5.01 Olivar Saherazai turns up in Tal Solarii to speak with Adhemar.

5.02: The royal court embark on the barges and river ships to sail from Moonspire to Fairgrove. They stay overnight at the small town of Mallowkeep - most courtiers will remain in the barges, royals and Harrowmonts are squeezed into what limited room is available in the lord's holdfast (remember how squished you were in Grey Glenn? Think back on that fondly).

5.03: The court leaves Mallowkeep. That night is spent on the barges. In Meridiez, the royal palace falls to the rebels.

5.04: Arrival in Fairgrove. House Solvitreo greets its new guests in great ceremony. Lord Khorane announces a series of games to be held in the Fairgrove arena (5.05-5.15)

5.12-13: Lemuralia: The spring cleansing of malevolent spirits, chiefly accomplished with appeals to Corvus by the heads of households, who are supposed to get up at midnight and walk through the house throwing black beans over their shoulders after which the family should make a great deal of noise to finish scaring the spirits out of the house. The wealthy prefer to pay people to do this, and find the noisemaking an opportunity for a party more often than not. Jeharraz' Zisemides nameday.

5.14: Merrik's Blessings: Merchants sprinkle heads, ships and merchandice with water taken from the temple of Merrik (the great one in Seastone is most favored). Additional blessings and foretelling may be sought from the priests and priestesses at this time.

5.16: Lucia and Kalden and the remaining recouperating wounded are deemed fit enough to travel and are sent to begin making their very slow and careful way toward Moonspire. In Meridiez, the rebel generals undertake discussions of sending Rosina Vellfyre along with an embassy north to Edolon, as a token of good faith following portents foretold to them at the Merrick festival.

5.17: The king's company departs Fairgrove and continues traveling by river to Tal Solarii. That night is another small town.

5.18: The court remains on the barges this night. Zoe Harrowmont's nameday.

5.19: The court arrives in Tal Solarii. That night is a grand feast and ball thrown in their honor.

5.20: Lucia, Kalden and Company arrive in Moonspire. Twelve days of games and balls begin in Tal Solarii.

5.23: Salindra Harrowmont and Elizabeth Ambrosios' nameday.

5.24: Lucia, Kalden and Co rejoin the court in Tal Solarii. Rosina and a company of Merideen soldiers leave the royal stronghold, making a slow journey to the ports where they will take ships to sail north to Edolon.
