From Heads Unworthy [SG]
« on: March 07, 2015, 03:01:55 am »

It is nearing the end of the 14th century, your father King of Clayburn is on his death bed still trying to rule the kingdom not willing to pass the responsibility onto you. Tensions have been growing between several rebellious groups of radicals, outside enemies, inside enemies, and your royal blood line. Many in the kingdom are convinced that you have murdered your younger brother to seal your place next in like for the throne but your stubborn father just won't let go.
He has been becoming more and more cruel, having the security of the kingdom abuse and extort it's people for funding in military campaigns that it can no longer aford. Your enemies hatred for your kingdom has only been growing stronger with the recent offences and rebellions are starting cities across the nation.
The only people you can trust are your father's head advisor Daniel Braun, your personal body guard and martial trainer (whom you have a slight crush on) Evelyne Lemarque, you political advisor Sosstroto Capazzo, and the 40 men assigned as your own military force inside the walls whom are loyal to you and all would lay down their lives for you. You also have ties with military commanders, some of whom are part of your 40 man personal militia.

Needless to say there are people who want your father dead, and with winter ending and the people's reliance on government controled food stores gone, rebellions are in full swing. Some cities are still loyal but others are training their men to slaughter your family's blood line.

Tonight was like any other night, you avoided your ever the more ailing father, you spoke with some of the advisors, you trained with your beautiful body guard, you are fine foods, and you planned on how you would re-arrange your father's quarters to better suit your preferences. But after falling asleep a secret mission of the rebels had begun, you awaken to Evalyne and four of your militants waking you up, they are armed and armored, one of them gently shakes you awake,"Sir Prince, we are here to escort you from castle grounds, some of your fathers assistance turned on him and we must leave now, your fathers loyal body guards are currently fighting with rebel spies. Please you must hurry, quickly follow us"

What do you do?

Ask how many have rebelled. Regardless of the answer, go kill some traitors with our 40 men. For the king!

"Many of the servants, we must leave now, the rest of your guard is holding the servants back from the stables but they can't hold them off for long, we must leave now. We have some of your things packed up and ready to leave."

You feel saddened as you can not help fight to protect your father, you decide to follow your escorts to the stables, you notice there are many of your militant guards in the halls fighting servants and you see many servants laying dead, blood splattered on the walls.
After navigating the dark halls by torch light you get the stables outside the side entrance of the castle.

There waits a brown and white horse with a saddle and two saddle bags filled to the brim, stuffed and tightly locked.
One of your advisers hands you a change of loose robes to change into.

The armored guard hands you the robes.
You ask where you all are headed as you change into more travel able attire.
He responds,"To the keep in the east, your father's strongest and most loyal soilders live there and we shall guard you with our lives."
As he says the last sentence the last of your forty guards/militants exits the castle, they are drenched in blood. Several others that were already out are preparing the herd of horses they will be taking, almost the whole stables worth of fine horses each carrying two bags filled to the brim and some pack mules who are carrying large amounts of supplies for the journey.

The night ends and the sun rises bringing dawn to the country side. You have escaped the city and your men are leading you to a fortress, one of the few inside the kingdom that hold loyal troops willing to protect the blood line with their lives.
You seemed to have fallen asleep during the slow ride along the road away from your burning castle you once called home and you now awaken to the sudden jolt of your horse stopping, a slight tap on your side and you look down to see the familiar face of Daniel Braun, He helps you off your horse and leads you to the camp that is being set up. A circle of half pitched tents, several men setting up a fire, the horses being tied to trees along the field, some wandering around looking for dry wood, and others milling around unloading some supplies.
Braun sits you down near the fire,I'm sorry for your lose, if you haven't figured out, last night there was a raid of peasants and hired mercenaries who stormed the castle, several workers on the inside let them in and they killed your father and two of his guards before they began slaughtering those loyal to the crown. I awoke your guards from the barracks just outside and Evelyne took a few guards to retrieve you, the rest of us began fighting back the mercinaries and peasants, we were able hold them back long enough for the castle's loyal military to get up and fight back giving us time to escape. You must know that your life is the most important as of now, we have to protect the heir of the throne. Are there any questions you have?

Malechiah

Also, do we have any suspicions as to who specifically may wish to seize power?

Has my father's death been confirmed? Who staged this raid? there's no way this just happened without someone pulling the strings.

What of my mother? Is she safe?

((Your name is Malechiah, I don't think I specified your last name yet did I? Well if not I'll get one, also you are the Prince of Kingdom Clayburn))

He listens to your questions as you spout them out in frustration and stress ((its only been a few hours since the attack and you were asleep for a bit because ya know overstress, tiredness, nothing else to do, you have sleep problems, etc))
He calmly answers,We are unsure of who would want to seize power, your father had many enemies and any number of them could be the one who did this. His body was not recovered by any of your guards but those who reinforced us may send word if they found the body, if they survived we may see them at the old fort. We are unsure of who staged the raid, we know someone had to be on the inside to let them in but a lot of peasants in the area have been waiting for a riot and with the government controlled food stores out of the way they may have just snapped. Your mother was not seen last night and we were unable to find her, we were able to save you however.

"Damn.

Okay, send word to the commander of the garrison of my thanks. I want to start building up a second army like Capazzo's men. If someone claims the capital then we will be forced to take it back or we risk law to be stepped on forever. An without law our enemies will see our weaknesses quick enough to occupy our Kingdom.

Are there any Lords nearby who's loyalty they would pledge to me?"

EDIT:  Daniel Braun, your personal body guard and martial trainer (whom you have a slight crush on) Evelyne Lemarque, you political advisor Sosstroto Capazzo.

Who is who again?

Daniel our personel bodyguard
Evelyne political adviser
and Capazzo our army officer?

[Daniel Braun is your fathers political advisor. Evelyne is your body guard and martial trainer (a girl you have a crush on). Capazzo is your political advisor. The difference between Capazzo and Braun is that Capazzo teaches you how to act, how to lead, and who the young nobles are (princes, princesses, Lord's children, etc) and Braun is a fall back for knowledge on other kingdoms and other rulers (the kings, queens, lords, etc)]
