I wanted the party to be gatecrashable, ideally, hence the dropped note, but that didn't quite catch up in time. Someone can certainly decode it now in a stroke of genius, it says Get Aerwen to meet Aldarion at the Third Circle tomorrow, but that's only circumstantially helpful (maybe someone at the Third Circle knows the coach belongs to Aerwen?)

Probably easier for any SAS operatives to just go calling on Burlach residences; they'd find nothing chez Cirdacil (even the old man's at the Treasury) and everything chez Ecsichil. If someone barged into the treasury to talk to Cirdacil himself (actually Elanor has and could again) he'd tetchily disclaim all knowledge of any more ridiculous troubles involving players, but say he knows his children are having a party, etc

OK, first of all appologies for being absent for so long without even letting you guys know. The fact is, I always thought I would post something soon, but I just could not get myself to do it. I'm kind of busy with end of the year exams at the moment, so I guess I'll only be able to post in the weekends. I've been following the game - and I must congratulate you for such a great job, guys - so I'll try to get something done by tomorrow evening. In the meantime, whoever needs Harrenon, feel free to use him.

I'm sure excited for that!

You are certainly more diligent than I ever was! My exams start in less than a week, and I'm spending most of my time goofing around on the Downs instead of studying...

Believe, it or not Pitchwife and I were already planning this (his idea).

So, as of my last post, Asta has just suggested the "jailbreak" to Coldan.

I think, to speed things up, we should just "cut" to the two of them trying to sneak in to the Ecsichil residence, and we can just explain how they found out where to go.

Also, I'm wondering if any of the others would like to get involved?

I don't think I can do a decent job, since I'm having a hard time with Cirdacil's family... But Thiliel could "cover up" or something similar. Stay on guard, perhaps. Or stay at the inn and keep everything quiet. Whatever works.

I was thinking we could try to trace the carriage that collected Sador (i.e. ask around in the city who has seen it, which direction it went etc.), hoping that finding Sador would lead us to Aldarion.

Would one of our Gondorians recognize the swan device on the carriage and know about the Burlach-Dol Amroth connection? Formy? Dim?
(I'll have to draw a family tree of the House of Burlach in order to remember who's married/in-lawed to whom.)

We also might want to time our arrival with Cirdacil's and Vëandur's

G55, I think taking Thiliel along for this would get us kicked out of the inn, but having her cover up is a good idea.

I'll do my best to make that family tree here, for reference, though it's q hard to convey graphically -

Dol Amroths

Erchirion (I think?)

children, Amlach, Gloredhel

Amlach married to Circilie


Burlachs

brothers, Beren (see Pelargirs), and Cirdacil

Cirdacil's children by marriage to Aerin the first

Ecsichil (married to the colourless Lady Ecsichil, they have loads of (say, three or four) sons away serving as soldiers who aren't important), Aerwen

by marriage to Aerin the second

Circilie (married to Amlach), 'Sador'


Pelargirs

Beren, Cirdacil's elder brother, father of

Falastur father of

Vëandur

I think that would be a good idea.

Vëandur is supposed to meet Cirdacil around midnight at, I think, the entrance to the Sixth Circle.

Thanks, Ang, that's very helpful. (And about the question of Beren/Sador, I suppose I would - and compensate by engaging in mental/poetic athletics. Been there, done that.)

Right. So I think it'll take one or two more posts from Nerwen and/or me till we're good to go, mainly because I'd like to involve Harrenon into the matter if Dim has time to post (and even if she doesn't) - which should give Ang/phantom/Zil some space to get the party/reading going and have Cirdacil pick up Vëandur, and then we should be ready to cut to Ecsichil's and burst into the party à la Dostoyevsky. Sound good?

(By the way, Nerwen, what colour are Asta's eyes?)

She'd go willingly if she only knew what Coldan and Asta were up to. She would think that everything would go smoothly and Ingold won't notice her nightly absence, but seeing as this mission has to fail somehow (whatever the players do does) he'd probably know. And he'd hold the Players responsible no matter what. And he already has a bit of a grudge against them.

So perhaps just a cover-up at the inn. Thiliel would still need to know what exactly she's supposed to do, and who shouldn't know about the opertion at any costs.

So if you want, I can bring her to Asta's wagon so that you can tell her.

Yes, this could work. Of course, I can't say how much simple folk in Gondor would know about the doings of the upper classes, but I suppose I could have Harry speculate about the connection.

Sounds good, Pitch. Since it's the weekend, I'll be able to find some time to post and I'll join the two of you (much to Asta's annoyance, it would seem )

Or if Harry recognizes the device, Amdír might know about the connection (having been in Cirdacil's employ).

Definitely to Coldan's. I hope we can pick you up tomorrow (Sunday). Any idea where Harry is at the moment?

G55, I think Coldan would appreciate it very much if Thiliel wouldn't show up at Asta's wagon quite yet.

Quite. Not to mention that if he somehow manages to win her after all and walks into it open-eyed, he deserves what he gets (cf Meat Loaf's Paradise by the Dashboard Light Part 3).

Sorry for the delay– couldn't get online earlier. Okay, Coldan has now had his kiss.

I'm thinking a dramatic interruption from either Harry or Thiliel might be in order shortly, though?

Wonderful posts, you two! I'm so glad I stopped right there in my last one!

No prob with Harry having overheard the earlier scene in Brinn's wagon, I think - we'll just have to assume he stayed outside with Rollan and eavesdropped, as he surely would have been noticed if he'd tried to fit in there, too.

EDIT: Posted Coldan's reaction. G55, feel free to have Thiliel join the conspiracy now. And Nerwen, just in case you haven't thought of it - lockpicks and crowbars!

hate to be a trickling source of evil etc (this is a lie), but this could get deliciously nasty if Harry tactlessly reveals Coldan told him to watch Sador AND Asta...

I am very happy for that moment though. I think it's a really nice contrast to the long agonised upper class romantic manouevring, a good smackeroony

Re-reading, I find that Asta actually saw the carriage leave, whereas Harry possibly didn't, so I have posted accordingly.

I just remembered that all of us would recognize the Dol Amroth device - we've been there only a year ago, haven't we? Duh. Forgetting our prehistory.

Dim, just to be clear, is Harry coming along all the way for the jailbreak?

Well, yes, I guess so. I think I'll manage to find some time to keep up with the game every two days or so. If I'm not around, feel free to use Harry as much as you need. As for all of us recognising the Dol Amroth device, I'll edit my post and say that Harrenon reminds you what the swans mean instead of actually informing you.

I love the mad conspiracy theories Asta and Coldan have got. Vëandur really needs to get to meet them.

Thnks, Dim; I should have been clearer last Night about what I had in mind.

Working today on a lengthy post with Brinn and Rollan; in case it takes a while to get it up I just thought I'd let those of you who are staying in the inn area know what will be up.

Brinn's understandably upset at her husband and is banishing him for the night; he's eventually going to try to get Thiliel to look in on her. Hoping to get all that done for today.

Poor Rollan! (And poor Brinn, too.) Looking forward to reading that!
Just don't come for Thiliel before we've briefed her. I'll try to get something written in the next three hours or so.

Yeah. If Coldan, Asta, or Harry want to give her instructions, go ahead. If Thiliel will continue to be conveniently ingnored... well, unnoticed , she'd just take up the task of "covering up" out of the blue. And Brinn, Rollan, Sereth, - Branor and Therian? -make her life difficult!

Hang on just a bit, I'm working on it.

As for Branor and Therian, I considered including them in the kidnapping theory like Mnemo suggested, but Coldan probably hasn't even noticed that they're missing. (Last time we heard from them, Branor was going to look for Therian IIRC, and Fea mentioned that she had some kind of plan for Therian; would be nice to know what that was.)

EDIT: Thiliel's got her instructions. (Hope I haven't made Asta too mean, Nerwen.)

Me too. It was fun writing about her like that. But if you don't like it, Nerwen, I'll take it out of my post.

I edited my post to add the whole Ingold thingy. Now Thiliel is in the common room, if Rollan - or anyone else - wants to find her.

G55, if you decide to have Thiliel come and check in on Brinn, she'll have mastered herself by that point and eradicated all traces of her earlier tears.

Impressive stuff, Mnemo and G55! I love it how one after another of our characters has their own dark night of the soul - even Thiliel has just had an appropriate crisis with her uncle. A Cormare to remember!

And Coldan has just had a stroke of genius bordering on madness how to make it even more unforgettable. Let's hope it's going to rain toNight...

It's one holiday that won't ever be forgotten!

And, you know, now that you mention it, it does seem a bit weird (or is it?) that all the characters are having their "dark night of the soul" all at the same time.

And that there will be a well nearby... wherever the diversion is going to take place.

Poor Harry.

Sorry Mnemo, I'm probably just making Rollan's day worse and worse, couldn't resist it though.

ps. I love everything that's going on! Asta, Coldan & Harry = <3

For clarity, how exactly did Asta understand Coldan's suggestion? I'm asking because I'm not sure myself whether he just means to start a little firework on the premises or to make Smaug himself in his full glory descend on the House of Burlach - which would be awesome, but even if Asta were reckless enough to take her mecha pet into danger, I don't see how we could move him without alerting everybody at the inn. If you think it can be done, though, I'd absolutely love to.

PS.- Thanks, Lommy!
