House Eventide

4th Meeting: Vindication

The tournament begins. The party is split up doing many different activities. Glenn and Asher accompany Orton Lugus and ser Jorus into the Kings wood to confront the fox knight. A fight ensues and the fox knight is slain by Orton Lugus. Ser Jorus is also killed in the skirmish and is brought to the sept by Glenn.

Skud sets his plan in motion with Rog Thanders, telling him that he wants him to become our wharf-master and dock supervisor in charge of exports, he has him sign a pre-written letter under the guise that it is a contract for the new position. He then gets Rog drunk and tells him that the Kettlebottoms have been saying horrible things about him and that he should maybe confront them about it. Rog does so and gets beaten up buy their guards. Seeing this Skud immediately goes over and ensures the gold cloaks that he will take care of Thanders and no legal action must be taken. later that evening Skud takes Rog to the treeline behind the Kettlebottoms pavilion and murders him. He cuts out his tongue and stuffs the letter into his mouth. Skud then threw the severed tongue in front of the Eventide tent and headed off to the feast. The letter read :

Dear House Kettlebottom,

I truly and sincerely apologize for my deplorable behavior earlier this evening. I also hope that I did not disrespect House Eventide by showing up drunk. If there is anything we can do to make this up to your house feel free to ask.

Signed,

Rog Thanders, Retainer of House Eventide

At the feast Adham Kettlebottom publicly accused house Eventide of the murders of his small folk. King Robert heard his accusations and afforded Elend a chance to rebuke them. Elend vehemently denied the murders causing Robert to declare a trial by joust the following morning. It was noted that Adham looked ill during the feast. Upon returning to the tournament grounds the group sees gold cloaks inspecting the severed tongue infront their pavilion. They describe what they believe happened, telling the group that the Kettlebottoms had murdered Rog Thanders when he attempted to go apologize, they cut off his tongue and stuffed his apology note in his mouth. The party, minus Skud, was shocked and appalled.

The next day the jousting begins. The first match is the trial by combat pitting Elend Eventide and Adham Kettlebottom against each other. After several tilts, Elend unhorsed Adham and won vindication for the House. Moments after this victory Adham begins having seisures and is removed from the grounds. Aidan jousts as a mystery knight, unhorsing Lancel Lannister, Brian Telson, and an unknown Fray. He then draws Ser Barristan the bold in the 4th round. The two knights have 8 tilts before Barristan was victorious. Aidan reveals that he is from house Eventide and receives a great ovation from the crowd and King alike. Elend also unhorses several men including Norton Lugus.

Asher competes in the archery competition, after besting Asami Snow, he is defeated by a slim margin in the following round. Skud attends the Maesters conclave and attempts to find someone to cure Grissle.

The session ends with King Robert awarding Aidan with 5000 gold for his efforts in the tourney. And Glenn preparing for the grand melee.

3rd Meeting: Arrival at Kings Landing

The party reached the gate of the gods in the middle of the night. After days of riding hard, Aidan Black reached the group and joined them as they went inside. Upon reaching said gates the guards (Mick and ? ) were very harsh with the men, demanding to search all of their valuables. After some persuasion and a well placed bribe, Skud was able to gain passage and information regarding the Kettlebottoms.

The party was then escorted by Mick to the Green tree inn where they acquired room and board for the evening. While socializing in the inn, Elend meets the gaze of the beautiful Lidda and attempts to woo her. Skud makes friends with one of her retainers and occupies him while Elend and Lidda slip off for some alone time. Aidan and Asher tail Elend to a brothel where he dances with and ultimately beds with Lidda. While patroling the outside of the inn Asher is approached by four bandits, he kills the first and calls for aid. Aidan rushes outside after alerting the now satiated Elend and joins the fight. After a short skirmish two of the thugs are dead at the hand of Asher and the other two are down and yielding to Aidan. The gold cloaks are alerted and arrest the two remaining bandits. While this is occurring, Glenn meets an old knight named Jorus who regales him at length about the fox knight and his dealings. Glenn agrees to help Jorus find this fox knight in the kings wood on the morrow. Skud meets a merchant in the inn and trades him truffles for a very potent liquor. He also meets Orten Lungus, who tells him that he is attempting to marry off his sister Marta. Orten goes on to tell that Marta is known as the black widow of Casterly rock due to her late husbands untimely and suspicious deaths.

The following morning Asher receives an unmarked package containing a very valuable knife. He then sets off with Glenn and Ser Jorus into the Kings wood to find the fox knight. They search for hours but find nothing, eventually coming across a large boar which they kill and bring back to kings landing. As this is going on Aidan and Elend are approached by a crazed man claiming that Elend is the father of his daughters unborn child. Aidan quickly dispatches these rumors by telling the man that the gold cloaks at the gates received the party just the other day. As this is unfolding Skud receives a letter from Dingle-berry stating that Grissle is sick. Skud immediately goes off to investigate and figure out what is wrong. The party then went to the tournament grounds and placed some bets on weather or not Ser Jorus would find the fox knight.

The sessions ends with the members of house Eventide sharing their boar with the small folk around the grounds and Elend about to meet Marta.

2nd Meeting: Along the Kingsroad
Everyone Hates Us

Continuing south, we discovered that a rival house of ours, the Kettlebottoms, have been spreading malicious rumors. We were confronted by the locals, whose weak minds had believed the petty lies. Skud decided to take a proactive approach, spreading false rumors of the Kettlebottoms in return.

The party also encountered the remnants of a group of sellswords. They later discovered that a man named the Fox Knight was hiring people and getting them killed. The Fox Knight is headed north, which is strange as he is from the Highgarden area in the south.

The party took in three new members at an inn. A female archer, a merchant who hopes to make it big in Kings Landing, and a garrulous knight who had been hired by the Fox Knight. As the party ventured south, an ambush was encountered. Ham, the talkative knight took an arrow through the eye. The party was able to interrogate one of the assassins, who admitted that the Kettlebottoms were behind the attack. Skud was about to finish the man off before Elend intervened, offering him a place in the ranks of House Eventide.

The session ended when the party arrived at the gates of King’s Landing.
