A Quiet Evening With Friends [ Attn: Ironswift and Company ]
Date: Beltaine | 39th of Crann | 1722 ATA
Time of Day: Early Evening.
Weather: A clear, cloudless night spangled with stars, with a gentle breeze.
Location: Ryol’s Estate
---

The estate was in perfect condition, as always, and the day had gone far more smoothly than any given day in the capitol – far too many other of the other Chieftan’s around at any one time for one to truly be at ease, not with the powderkeg of politics that was ever-present. A little distance, a little space – that was the true gift of being able to move between the Capitol and home with relative ease, to return home, and to be amongst his kinsmen, instead of the rabble that made up the rest of the Clanns…

He’d gone for a walk, earlier, along the lakeside, with his daughter, watched as she conferred with a nest of swans, had both ended up settled in the grass – he’d been dressed in black, as most outings with his daughter tended to result in some kind of potential mess – carefully feeding the creatures bits of bread from their hands. They’d talked about the city, of trade, of all the things a Taoiseach needed to be sure his Tainaste was aware of, and she was just as diligent as she usually was…

That is to say, she’d laughed, and smiled, and when he’d scolded her the girl – woman, now, but in his eyes, always his little girl, no matter whether she ten years old or a century – the girl had immediately responded as if by rote, reeling back the facts and figures he’d impressed upon her, giving her own thoughts on the current conflicts, on the affairs of the different Clanns… As always, he’d felt pride well up in his breast, and had spared her a small smile, then lay back in the grass and listened as she spoke of her own thoughts – half flights of fancy, half serious, wheeling and wandering, as clouds drifted lazily across the sky above them.

( They’d begun to point out shapes and name them, by the time Bryok and Eslyd had joined them, and the family had nested in the grass and spent a few idle hours together, as though there were no problems and politics to care for, like the early days, long before the war. )

As it was, night had started to fall, and the family had returned inside, had parted to tend to their own hobbies, to check on the younger members of the household… and Ryol was left to his own devices, had retreated to the study to sip at his wine and push open the window, leaned on the sill to stare out at the fading colours of the sunset, watching the light fade from the sky as the gentle breeze slipped into the room and danced around – not daring to disturb his papers, of course, he had enough ability to keep that little twist to its motion in the back of his mind, to ensure everything stayed in order…

It had been a good day, a calm day, free of complaint and conflict, where everything had gone smoothly and nothing had disturbed the perfect pace… overall, it had been the kind of day he wished he could have far more often.

RE: A Quiet Evening With Friends [ Attn: Ironswift and Company ]
The trip was something to hold upon Garik's mind with a mild ponder-glancing back to the party with him as the dull, deep thuds of Kairn, the light small pace (relatively) of Adea, the determined military stride of Nina, and the several Aesir warriors that came along with them dressed in bronze military fashion. It was a social visit but also one about the certain potential problems. And until that issue about Mairead was settled, she was to be inside the fort with Eric if not with the others. Luckily for all of them, there should not be a worry of any probing of the fort, or at least for her.

The group approached the estate and awaited at the gate/wall/manor entrance. He glanced up and around at the place as the guards approached, ready with the marks that invested his entrance to such a place, along with the bottom half of the of the letters. Like Ryol had been, such details didn't need to be carried around.

As usual, the request - a veiled command, but one given with courtesy - to split their numbers and leave the greater portion of their retinue outside the gates and doors while whatever routine business they were there to discuss with the Taioseach was dealt with.

The Sidhe at the gate, particularly the familiar enough face of the man in charge of the guard shifts, did not much approve of such numbers in general - even those which they were willing to allow passage through seemed too many, though the guards who joined those allowed in on the walk towards Ryol's study was at least stiffly cordial.

A runner slipped ahead as they approached, to give the chieftan forewarning, and so it was that he was waiting patiently by the time they entered, settled by the window and at ease.

Garik stepped in specifically once they had these little things with Nina and Adea. Kairn and the rest stayed outside-keeping their looks casual and mildly disciplined with the exception to the stone construct-currently covered in his heavy cloth. As he entered with his sisters, Garik gave a respectful short nod after dipping inside. "Taoiseach Ryol Ó Caer-Mór, I hope your day has been well."

"Well enough."

The man inclined his head in greeting, addressed the guard that followed the Aesir in with a dismissive flick of his wrist - the man frowned, at this, but nodded, curtly, retreating to pull the doors to after his passage, settled into his place guarding them. Ryol waited until he was gone before addressing the Aesir further.

"I trust your trip was an easy one?"

"Uneventful. The weather was mild as it usually is about this place. You have been given well to Fate in your raised territory." Garik replied before continuing to the point. "You had suggested to meet you in person over the matter I had sent, might I ask of the details then, or shall I go further on my own concerns?"

"We certainly have," Ryol conceded, no small hint of a smirk on his features.

"Yes, I had been wondering of the precise details of that matter - but I can allow my own questions to wait." He gestures with one hand, brow raised. "Speak."

He nodded once. "I speak on the years that have passed as well as my knowledge of these lands grow. I have found that with the previous war, there are a few clann who see to harrass vessels not of their own-provided they can get away with it. The clanns out west, that of Mannan island and the Sea dragons have come to light in passing conversation."

Ryol inclined his head at this. "Does that truly come as a surprise? Those of Mannan are a troublesome type, and it is no secret that the Sea Dragan do their best to impose their will on the seas."

He waited, at this, interested in where the Aesir was leading with the topic - particularly as the aforementioned potential problem with the Sea Dragan was one he wished to learn more of - both so that he could formulate a way around being caught up in it if he wished to avoid such.... And so he could see whether it was another piece he could use in his little array of hidden factors and movements he could potentially turn against his 'dear friend Manius'; if and when the time came.

"As it stands, we make use of a small enclave of sorts as a mid-way point to our usual shipments on Mannan; it assists with supplies needed to be on board and a shelter if the weather turns foul. Beyond the usual bickerings of any Aesir man "daring" to approach them civilly, we have had heard rumors of talented Sea Dragons whom are kenneled as a matter of speech and otherwise kept close to make sure of the full utilization of their ability." He stepped towards the window, hands clasped.

"I have no mind nor patience for the politics of the region provided it does not affect our dealings or of our voyages, but as of late our prosperity under your care has us pondering the purchase of a third vessel and hiring upon the local talent-one such sea dragon member has approached us when we asked about and has proved well so far. Whether her talents are earned or of this 'blood' perception the Chieftain of the Sea Dragon has, I do not wish to have someone nosing about my vessels if I so much as look upon their people or slide by what they think their waters."

Current Setting
Season of Lughnasadh in Cels | Months of Harpa to Solmanudur in Norland

Summer has come to the High Kingdom as tensions grow among the Septs. The Ua Badb rise in rebellion along with the Ua Abhean and the Ua Ecne.

In the Isles of Manann the Inish Folk sharpen their blades as war seems to be growing with the ways of Clann Sea Dragan. Word also spreads from Cymru that the Eagle are building a wall along the border as strange ghost ships are seen in the Sea of Aegos.

In Norland the Aesir are stunned as King Skaldir Skaldrsson is struck with a strange illness. Some say it is the Black Oak who committed the crime.
