Edolon: Empires at War  

Go Back   Edolon: A Tournament of Shadows > The Game Board > Kingsreach > Blacktide

Blacktide The largest port city in Kingsreach, with a population of almost 36,000. Blacktide serves as a business center where trade and enterprise thrive. For whatever reason, the city is not exactly host to the friendliest sort of people, and has a bit of a reputation for not being the sort of place you want to be alone in at night. In recent years, Blacktide was plagued by a series of riots, but it was put down before it could escalate and now the city is recovering well.

Default 4.11 morning :: when clouds appear wise men put on their cloaks (Gavin, Zee, Warrick, NPCs)

The king's daughter and nephew rode at the head of a column of men and a few priests of the death god but it was not the casket or its bier that took Wallace's attention. Instead he fixed his eyes on the Vellfyre boy and bastard girl... and his brothers at their sides.

He did not meet them at the gates of Blacktide, but let them and their procession wend a solemn, slow path through the twisting street that led from the west gate to the castle.

Here, he met them beyond the drawbridge, in the great courtyard with the banners of House Wolfe blowing in the breeze. Rain was on the horizon but it had not yet reached them. Clouds mounted to the west and north, but Wallace's eyes didn't stay on the horizon.

Dressed in black, he moved down the steps from the doors of the castle to meet them as they dismounted from their steeds.

"Welcome to Blacktide, Princess. Lord Gavin." He bowed, though not very low and then cast his eye on his brothers. "I am surprised you found the road back, Warrick. I had begun to think you did not remember what direction your home lay from the king's city." A smile, but it didn't quite reach his eyes. "The hospitality of my hall is yours. Lord Gavin, I hope your journey was an easy one."

Gavin was difficult to read as he neither smiled or frowned as they rode into Blacktide. Whether he was uncomfortable or upset also could not sensed keeping himself busy by being aware of their surroundings.

He dismounted and drew closer to Ziamara to help her dismount and together approached Wallace. He noted the bow and returned one as well that was respectable and polite, "Thank you, Lord Wallace. It is an honor being here and for you to receive us."

The man's smile bothered Gavin, but he continued to ignore it, "It was indeed. It has been a great many years since I have been here and I'm glad of the opportunity to get reacquainted."

Warrick leaned forward and swung his leg over, dismounting and handing the reins off to a servant. He gave Shadowless a soft pat on the side of his neck before stepping towards his brother, eyes carefully surveying him before offering him the polite bow of his head in greeting.

"It has been a busy time," he answered. "Especially these last few months. As you well know, my lord."

Ziamara smiled faintly as Gavin helpedher down but she remained silent save to nod in recognition of Wallace's welcome. The fact he spoke to Gavin rather than her either meant he objected to her bastard status or didn't address women when men were present. Either one might mean problems.

"A pity it is not in more joyous circumstances, Lord Gavin. We will do the best we can to entertain you whilst our house is in mourning. Again. We had only just laid aside our ashes and mourning weeds for your lady mother." He favored his youngest brother with barely a glance. "Every season is busy in the king's court, I am given to understand, Warrick. Come, let us get in from the gray humors of this day before more of us catch our deaths from chill and ill-favored stars."

He motioned for them to join him as he turned and started up the stairs. Servants rushed to open the doors that led them into the great hall of Castle Wolfe, currently sporting two fires in giant hearths and fluttering pennants from the ceiling picturing wolves and cocks.

"We should let you reacquaint yourself with your chambers, Warrick. Princess, Lord Gavin: if you wish, I can have you seen to your own chambers to rest. There will be a feast tonight in honor of my cousin's remains. Corvus' priest here is coming to bless us all before the funerary rites and rituals begin on the morrow though we will no be able to bury him for a week at least for the rains have destroyed the road to the tombs quite thoroughly."

The dig from Wallace put Gavin on edge for as he pointed out, his mother was the one that died just revenly and here they were presenting another Wolfe's death. However, he held his tongue and gave a nod instead. "What you can offer, my lord, we would truly appreciate it."

They followed close while being escorted inside and he kept close to Ziamara lending her his support.

"Yes, that sounds like a good idea, Lord Wallace. An opportunity to get washed up and presentable when back in your company," he answered bothered that Ziamara was remaining so quiet.

Warrick didn't feel the need to say much more... Until... "A week? I had not heard the rains were so terrible."

"You didn't tell him, Will?" Wallace's eyes widened as he looked at the elder twin. William sighed.

"I had hope that better tidings would arrive in my absence, brother. Perhaps about the Lothston bridge--"

"Washed out. Apparently there was a dead cow in the creek, knocked a support out. We'll have to take the usual road... once the mud's not likely to drown us along with Worthing's coffin." As he spoke he waved over a pair of servants, and William's two daughters came along. Genisa stepped out to give her uncle a welcome but Aicelina approached Princess Ziamara and Gavin.

"Your Highness, Ser..." She curtsied. "I can show you to your chambers." The fourteen-year-old's voice only wavered a little from nerves.

"Lina...?" Ziamara blinked and smiled. "Goodness, you have grown since last I saw you. Of course... lead on, my lady. Gavin and I are pleased to get some rest in a room with solid walls." She turned to nod to Wallace. "Lord Wolfe. Until this evening."

Warrick gave his twin a look but then turned, holding his arms out for his niece as she came to greet him. This was a true smile now, and his hand went to the top of her head. "You're both growing, it seems. What's that about?" he asked fondly. He kept one arm around her as he looked back at William, taking the time that Ziamara spoke with him to try to get a real read on the situation.
