Birth of Lord Frakk

Frakk: I forgot how nice this place was

Hired Blade: “Who goes there?”
Frakk: Francis Coleman
Frakk: Son of Valera Grenmere

Hired Blade: “Who?”
Frakk: I’m here to speak with Regg Coleman

Thug: “He means Lord Coleman’s widow.”

Hired Blade: “You mean his dead wife. He’s a widower. She’s not a widow.”
Tyrile: “You guys want a job, your smarter then the last mercenaries I met.”
Frakk: My companions and I request an audience with my father, if he’s not above talking to us

Thug: “Ah. I’ll tell him that we have company.”

Frakk: Thank you

Thug: “He says to send them in. He’ll see them in the hall.”

Hired Blade: “All right.”

Charles Hurst: “Lord Coleman! How nice to see you again.”

Regg: “Indeed. Well Francis. To what do I owe the pleasure?”

  • Frakk Frakk gives him a dark look

Regg: “You can speak, can’t you?”

Frakk: I need my birth papers.
stays silent a moment, his eyes taking in Frakk and his cohorts for a moment.

Regg: “May I ask to what ends?”

Frakk: It’s a long story. Hav you heard the tragedy that befell Fostern?

Regg: “Indeed I have. It seems they were having some trouble with some cultists.”

Frakk: Yes. We stopped them, but the information we have leads us to believe that there are more cult centers and activities

Frakk: in order to stop them as well, we need to be larger than this small company.

Frakk: and to do that… we need to be officially recongnized.

Frakk: so, I’m going to apply for knighthood and I’ll need the papers as proof of my nobility

Regg: “You’re… nobility?”

  • Frakk Frakk sighs at the number of words he just said.
  • Frakk JKASDFASDFJL
    smiles slightly.

Regg: “Why come to me for them?”

Frakk: Yes, my mother was Valera Grenmere, noble of this estate.

Regg: “Heh. Noble indeed.”

  • Lia ominously fiddles with bow string.

Frakk: and you’re the father on my papers, Regg

Charles Hurst: “Lord Coleman, I don’t mean to sound rude, but it appears that the papers are in fact Francis’ property, and not yours. If you’d turn them over I’m sure both Francis and myself would be thankful to you for your kindness.”

Regg: “That is true I suppose. But this bas**** was never my child. So the birth papers that were issued to him were falsified to begin with – they are not legally binding.”

  • Lia whispers in Frakk’s ear. “We asked nicely”.

Frakk: They still proove who my mother is

Charles Hurst: “Do you have the papers here?”

Lia: “If the papers are not legally binding, then why should you have any attachment to them?”

Regg: “I do. But I do not see as how it concerns you Charles. I’ll ask you politely now to leave, your time here has been wasted.”
regards the elf a moment.

Regg: “I’m sure you understand that I do not wish my own connection to this unfortunate accident to be known.”

Frakk: test

  • Tyrile really wishes he could spit right now.

Frakk: NO

Cian: Some men can’t help but be cowards in their own castles.

Frakk: you give my my papers NOW

Frakk: rolls a 7 for a total of 21 on his intimidate check.

Lia: “He seems rather insistent. I don’t know that it’s wise to piss him off.”

Regg: “Heh. What are you going to do, threaten me in my own home? If you step out of line I’ll have you in stocks faster than you can blink. And you know it to be true. What’s the penalty for assaulting a Lord these days? I’m sure we can seek the death penalty for your assassination attempt.”

  • Lia whispers to Frakk “Challenge him, now, before he has the chance to keep it from happening.”

Charles Hurst: “Come, come Regg. No one’s come here to assassinate you.”

Lia: If we had you would be dead and we would have the papers.

Frakk: Since you have refused me my rightful property, insulted my mother, I challenge you here and now. That is, if you’re man enough to face me in combat.

Lia: “Which, I might add, seems doubtful.”

Regg: “Challenge me to combat? Hm… perhaps that could be useful. Have you killed here and now instead of waiting through the legal process. If you win, you get your papers. What’s in it for me?”

Frakk: In it? This isn’t a bargain you idiot. You insulted my honor. I have a right to defend it
Tyrile: “We’ll be dead, and you’ll have one less problem in the world.”
does not take kindly to being called an idiot by Frakk.

Regg: “All right. You and your comrades here against my champions. For your honor, and your papers.”

Frakk: You were too much of a coward to kill me as a child, are you still a coward? or did you finally grow a pair of balls. I see there are no other wives or children here, so I think not

Frakk: Stand as a man

  • Lia laughs

Lia: Ah well, if we can’t see Francis here kill you, it will be almost as fun to kill your champions.
Regg: “Fine. I will join the battle as well.”
Regg: “Meet us before the gates in five minutes time.”

Lia: This day just gets better and better.
Regg: “Charles. You will be an honorable referee?”

Charles Hurst: “Indeed.”

  • Lia whispers if he tries, I’ll kill him.
  • Tyrile looks at Lia. “Dont kill the champions, just drop them. I don’t care what you do to Regg.”

Charles Hurst: “Francis. Do you wish to fight till the death, or until first blood?”

  • Lia looks back at tyrile, I will try, but I can’t make any promises, battle you know, if they are honorable, I will do my best not to slay them.

Frakk: Bloodied. I’m not a monster
