Cool. :D I shall work that in!

Awesome. I will wait until you get your post up Hanasian. I will take some time with Roe-Zunic’s transfer of loyalty. It will be a process that has begun already and morphs over time.

Sounds good, Jax.

I've taken the action back to Osgiliath, where Vinyarion is engaged in some character assassination in what he sees as an unfortunate necessity.

In the process, Amarwen has dropped the note, Almara has retrieved it again to come face to face with Farien. Farien very much wants to see that note.

I'd like to get another post in before the betrothal event concludes, from Therald's perspective, if at all possible.

Dreaded double post - had to get Therald and the 3 shieldmaidens that had snuck a peek at proceedings in.

On a walkabout among the interwebz searching for information on Castamir and Umbar, I came across a few fandom writings.
They all made for interesting reading even if I didn't agree with all that was presented (much like PJ's interpretations).
Here are the links as they do provide some insights into the era which we write:


Observations of Umbar

Re-thinking Umbar

History of Umbar

Castamir the Usurper

After a few days considering various angles, I've decided that my next post will be timed for late in the evening when Amarwen will be in her chambers alone, preparing (or attempting to) to go to sleep.

No worries - figured you might be preoccupied.

I've taken it up from where you left with an idea for Almara to consider further - possibly dovetailing with Rie's new assignment. I've also pushed the timeline through to the following morning, with Amarwen returning from seeing her father off.

Hey Jax, it's been madness for me IRL - annual royal state agricultural fair (as I believe they are referred to in your part of the world) is underway.

I've yet to be able to find the goat exhibit but shall do so, just for you.

Read your post, btw. Good one.

It’s all good! Lol My life has been extra busy as well. There is a local guy who does auctions who has been wanting our help a lot lately. He is preparing for 3 at once!

Haha, awesome. :D

:) Glad you liked it, I often feel my posts are just so so. Most writen on the fly with not but a single quick read-through.

Three at once? Oh my glob!

So Amarwen's had a spectacularly bad morning - couldn't see how it would be anything but given the stupendous hangover she'd have from the night before.

Figured Almara might not yet have shown - business to deal with Rie - and wanted to capture both the political realities Amarwen faces and something of the bond between Dol Amroth and Edhellond.

Amarwen would be particularly dismayed by all she has observed of the court (Farien, Girdean, Calimir). And, I thought it likely that her friendship with Halvarin, known to Eldacar for he commented on it to her father, when viewed with her reticence towards to the betrothal give rise to inevitable questions about where her loyalties lay. Eldacar would be particularly vigilant regarding securing any of the 'northern' ports - the prospect of losing Edhellond and with it Dol Amroth would trouble the crown prince and he'd want to explore Amarwen's loyalties carefully.

And I have something of a plan involving Farien & Calimir - the wheeling and dealing is not yet done. Not by a long shot, particularly when Farien is trying to engineer a match between two rival families for the throne. Rather than cast Farien as an out and out villian, I'd like to see her played more nuanced. She will have her own thoughts about who should secede Valacar - purist rather than Line of Kings. However, she has sons to protect should the balance of power shift...as well as herself as wife to a deposed King.

I think it unlikely Farien would be so foolish as to undermine her husband's rule. However, she's a canny politician with considerable reach and power. She'd be using that to assure the future of her most valuable assets - her sons.
