Death of Joey Faraday
| Faraday Conflict |
My brother is dead. I demand justice from the royal family.
It was around the time that Freddie Highmore and Emma Bell were beginning their full fledged secret relationship that Joey Faraday and his own personal level of depression would cause a massive problem that would eventually spread into a household rivalry. By this point they had begun to discuss the idea of telling Emma's beloved cousin William of whom was also Freddie's friend, but at that point had not fully worked up the courage to say anything yet, and it was under these pretents that they went to a tavern in Lucerne proper to be alone together. The two were having a great time until Freddie went to the tender to ask for a refill of the drink that Emma had come to enjoy and when he did the situation would drive out of control. When he left Joey Faraday would use this moment of departure to attempt to seduce Emma Bell of whom he had been watching for some time from across the tavern. Where once his natural looks had allowed him to get any manner of girl that he wanted, as his reputation had spread so to as a result had the number of women interested begun to dwindle. As he had become used to resistance he had also become used to forcing his way on girls and using his noble birth, and money to bribe off any trouble after the case, and thus when Emma told him she was with Freddie, and that she was noble born he saw this as the same rejection and he started to get more forceful in their meeting. When Freddie came back to the table and found the situation he attempted to remain calm and simply advise Joey who was much older then him to back away. This calm approach did not go over well and Joey reacted with laughter before punching him in the face knocking Freddie momentarily down, but he quickly got up and following this the two would become involved in a scuffle of which Joey would lose causing him to request a duel with Freddie Highmore.By this point Paulo Snow entered the tavern after finally catching up with Joey, and by this point he found Joey tauning young Freddie into a duel, and because of the large crowd Freddie was forced to go into the duel even though he knew that Joey wouldn't stand a chance. Joey Faraday would taunt him into the street and then took out a sword threatening Emma of which caused Freddie to sadly take out his own sword, and the two fought although with Joey nearly falling over drunk it wasn't much of a fight as Freddie knocked his sword aside and shouted for him to surrender. Joey refused and charge Emma with a dagger forcing Freddie to stab him through the back to stop him, and killing him nearly instantly. Paulo took out his sword and tried to attack Freddie of whom he was able to fight breifly before guards from the nearbye House Elbertson led by (Ser) Underian of House Elbertson would step in and stop Paolo of whom watched screaming as Freddie left the scene carrying the crying Emma Bell. Following this Emma would wake up the following morning surrounded Alice Lovie, and her aunt Catherine Lovie of whom let her cry and held her before finally telling her that a trial had been demanded by the Faraday's over the death of Joey Faraday. At that point she begged to know where Freddie was and they said he had been taken and placed in the Lucernian dungeon awaiting his trial, but when she became irate that he was in jail for basically defending her they revealed this had been decided only after he had returned to the House Highmore estate and the Faraday's had attempted to kill him in the courtyard leading to Desmond Faraday also being imprisoned awaiting trial. Dressing quickly she accompanied Alice into the courtyard where they were met by some twenty House Lovie guards including Giblert Fouline, and James Junnsworth of whom escorted the group to the King's Keep where Bella Swan was preparing the court for the arrival of the group. With King William in the Port of Stormwind celebrating the foundation of that city while this was happening it did fall to the Councillors of Lucerne, and the Queen to determine the court, and under these circumstances Bella would prepare ahead of the time and had recalled many of the most influential in the Lucerne Court. The trial would have five judges as was the way in Lucernian courts in the form of Cersei Lannister, Bella Lovie, Brandon Starke, Liam Greymane, and Mace Tyrell of whom would listen to the words of the plaintiffs first in the form of Desmond Faraday who had been released from jail alongside Freddie. Weaving a tale of lies he argued that Freddie had killed Joey in blind rage using Magi and trickery. The Faraday's brought forward several men who were not present at the fight of whom told the court that Freddie was a well known pedophile and had also been found killing children in Nortburg years before, and while Brandon Starke on the council would openly laugh at the truthfulness of these stories, it wasn't until the defense led by Lysa Highmore called as their witness Underian of House Elbertson that the case was completely ended. Underian as a witness and a knight testified that he saw Freddie attempt to stop the fight and even after defeating Joey attempted to resist hurting him, but Joey had brought death upon himself when he tried to kill Emma Bell of whom took the stand next and as a princess of Lucerne her words would end the trial when she agreed with Freddie, and Underian.
Following Emma Bell's words the judges would briefly speak together before Brandon Starke spoke giving the words of the judges in the form of stating they had come to terms with the fact that Freddie Highmore was innocent of murder, and then proceeded to verbally attack Desmond Faraday and several of the Faraday retainers who had wasted their time with this hearing. Desmond would at first remain silent but then responded with great anger shouting and trying to get to Freddie of whom stood stoically as the House Lovie guards took Desmond away where he would spend the day and night in the Lucerne Dungeon. While Desmond was imprison again Bella Lovie, and Alice Lovie would take up court at the Keep and would summon Charles Faraday of whom they would have a long conversation with about the events of the day. Charles made it very clear that he was demanding consequences against House Highmore and that unless there were consequences there was going to be reprisals against House Highmore. Once Desmond was released his father was told by James Junnsworth that until William Lovie III. returned and he was on his way that nothing more would be done in the matter, and grudgingly Desmond agreed as he believed that the King would punish Freddie. Following the departure of Charles Faraday she would meet with Cersei Lannister and the two have a nice conversation before Cersei unknowingly slips that Lanna Lannister had traveled to the Port of Stormwind and realizing that Jasper is a liar about not seeing Lanna anymore she says a quick goodbye to Cersei and goes to find Dylan Steinmare. Finding him talking to Emmett she has him excuse himself and following Alice the two return to the Cloud Tower where without any real words of what she is thinking she seduces Dylan and the two sleep together. Following this the two discuss there futures and Alice all but pleads with Dylan to tell her to not marry Jasper, but despite proclaiming his love for Alice he knows he cannot divorce Laera Steinmare who he loves as well, and she must marry Jasper Hale for her brother, and although she has come to hate Jasper she knows this is the case.
Return of the King
Following the court decision the situation remains in a holding pattern as the Faradays await the return of the king of whom they strongly believe will reverse the decision and they will get their vengeance. When William Lovie III. arrives back at Lucerne following the debacle that was the death of Joey Faraday and trial of Freddie Highmore, and upon his arrival he is met at the gates by Alice, and Bella of whom accompany him back to the Cloud Tower where upon their arrival they tell him about the trial and he is quite shocked but is proud of his wife, and sister for their handling of the event but despite agreeing with their decision he is forced to meet with Desmond, and Charles Faraday of whom ask for punishment against Freddie Highmore. Tired from his trip he tells them that the law is concrete and there is no changing the decision, and unknown to him the Faradays take this as meaning that he is saying they must get justice themselves and while disappointed they see this as an opportunity to get their own revenge on House Highmore. Following his conversation with Desmond, and Charles he returns to the Cloud Towers and has a long conversation with Alice, but despite wanting to and Alice pressuring him to reveal the truth of Brooke he refuses to and the two siblings say goodnight and William goes to his room with Bella where he sleeps with her. Waking up after sleeping with Bella he is overcome with sadness over being apart from Brooke, and despite having Bella's arms around him he feels no better, and leaving his bed with Bella he goes to Alice's room where still overcome with emotions over being apart from Brook he finally reveals the entire truth to Alice that he is in love with Brooke. The two siblings argue for some time as William reveals the true scope of the relationship, and only after this does Alice truly come to understand that William's feelings are more then just lust. Revealing the scope of the relationship leads Alice to go through the endless list of potential problems it creates, and emotionally exhausted and unwilling to let his sister be mad at him he agrees to Alice's demand that he break things off with Brooke.
Annexation of Lorderon

| Annexation of Lorderon |
I see the way the wind is turning William. Already the feelers of the Boltens, and the Ironborn have come to our shores. Already we are threatened, and
As King Tenamil Menathil neared the end of his life Arthas Menathil the next in line would contemplate what the death of his father would mean. Arthas Menathil during this time was increasingly overcome with the madness of his mind, and in the brief periods between the voices in his head being louder then his own he came to believe that his Kingdom was going to fall on its own. Arthas was increasingly worried about losing his mind, and in his goal to protect his people he was working closely with three Magi from the Kirin Tor in the form of Jowan Uerellian, Anders Virtion, and his wife Azhellion Virtion of which Anders was his friend from there childhood and so knew everything that was happening in his head. Whether it was annexed by Arnor, Bolten, or bought by The Empire it wasn't going to be independent anymore so he had to make some changes if he wanted the Atlantian people to move forward. When his father finally passed away Arthas refused the customary crowning of the new King and instead stood as the prince apparent for nearly two months as he decided on what to do. Since the beginning of his fathers reign the importance of Lorderon had declined to such an extent that very few of the powerful continental powers sent representatives to Lorderon for the funeral, but one of the these few was the Kingdom of Lucerne of whom sent a heavy contingent led by Jacob Vorn IV. and Catherine Lovie and her husband.
During the funeral Arthas Menathil was having a relatively quiet time of the voices in his head and was able to mingle as he once had done so easily, and even Jaina Menathil was surprised with the way he appeared to be his old self. During this period of sanity he was unaware that his friend Anders had been trying a spell on him in order to see if it worked, but Anders of whom by this point was increasingly losing his mind to the levels of Magi influence he was gaining withheld that he might have found a way from Arthas`s curse. While in this period of sanity Arthas would speak with Catherine Lovie, and Jacob Vorn of which Jacob quickly saw that Arthas wanted a way into the Kingdom of Lucerne in some manner and spoke openly of the protection of Numenorians, and Atlantians, as well as discussing the disire of the king to protect Arnor the way he had protected Gondor. All of this was exactly what Arthas had been dreaming of, and he would tell Catherine and Jacob that he would visit Lucerne in order to meet with the king and discuss possibilities. Following this the funeral would take place and the Lucernians left in major numbers the following day, but several hidden members of the Order of the Green Dragon would remain behind in the form of Myriam Lonmouth, Dickon Hill and Whelia Moore of whom would be tasked to very silently keep an eye on what was happening in the city of Lorderon.

Finding a Queen

While Donovan was in Arnor he was given orders by William Lovie III. to attempt to find Natalie, and Tyse Hemsworth of whom had not been located and were believed to be in hiding in Arnor. In this act he would silently depart from the larger Lucernian army and move alongside Blanche Menathil and members of House Menathil into the city of Fornost which they infiltrated with ease due to the chaos of the situation. Once inside Fornost they discovered that there were mass executions happening and on top of that the Emperian forces were attempting to locate the Numenorians in the city, and especially the royal family. In a desperate search to find Natalie Portmane before the the Empire forces could they got lucky when they were tipped to her location by Atlantians who wanted the Queen to escape.
Finding Natalie hiding in a secret dungeon beneath Fornost, they would lead her out of the dungeon and the city with the help of a loyal Atlanitan scout. As they made their way into the forest Natalie was discovered by Empire Knights and in order to try and protect her son she led the knights away from the group and was captured. Karl would stay behind to see what happened and try and rescue Natalie and he would be present when Aldo Troy one of Priam Troy's nephew would put Natalie in chains taking her by horseback moving westward to which Karl and his group would begin following them at as close a distance as possible.
It was at this point that Hermione Granger would still be with the Valerian army as it ravages and destroys the lands of western Arnor capturing thousands and sending them back to Valeria where Kieth Schwartz tells her the Slanaash followers in the army are preparing a massive escalation of their violent excesses. Hermione Granger witnesses Kevin Zegers mask his appearance to diplomats sent from The Empire making them believe he is honorable and because of this the Empire does not intervene against his chaos forces allowing him the ability to return to Valeria and deal with his sister and her rebels. During this period following the ravaging of western Arnor by the Valerians it is Keven that makes a deal with Austrian diplomats that give much of western Arnor to Austria in return for not revealing the chaos elements within the Valerian army. Moving further westward Hermione is silently warned by Kieth Schwartz that things are going to get very violent once they get back to the core Valerian lands and if she wishes to leave then the time is nearly up for her to get away.
The next day she is woken in the middle of the night by Keith Schwartz of whom commands her to follow him and she does follow him into the forest where they ride for an hour before coming upon a grove where she sees Kevin Zegars and his command structure all standing around seemingly waiting for something. They wait there for another hour watching Kevin Zegars group and while there they eventually discover a group of Empire soldiers enter the grove and they escort a small group of chained and hooded figures of which when Kevin begins laughing maniacly they discover that one of the victoms is Natalie Portmane the Queen of Arnor. Seeing Natalie Portmane and remembering the kindess that she had been shown by William Lovie III. what seemed so long ago she almost goes to try and fight but is stopped by Kieth Schwartz of whom tells her that she won't survive and needs to escape so the Lucernians truly discover where Natalie is. Forced to leave lest they be caught she follows Kieth of whom takes her not back to the Valerian camp but instead to a small hidden camp where he tells her they will be parting for the final time revealing the camp is held by Lucernians following the trail of Natalie Portmane. After seeing this Hermionesays goodbye to Kieth Schwartz of whom she had grown to like as a person who she knew regretted everything in his life, and then makes her way into the camp where she is met by several guards including their leader in Karl Donovan.
Following the path of Kevin Zegars forces westward as Kevin and his force made there way back to the Valerian lines it was a horrifying test for Karl Donovan and the Lucernians of whom are completely unprepared for the massacres they are forced to witness as they pass through the lands of Arnor. As they move forward it becomes clear that they will have to make a move to get Natalie back before the forces of Kevin reach Galheim as once they pass Galheim the Lucernians will be unable to continue persueing and thus they prepare to move into the Valerian camp during the night.
