    Araaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabian niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiights like Araaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabian daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaays...

    Hmmm? Why are you all looking at me?

    Actually, I realized after I posted the Beldak/Lawrence fight that I totally intended to use a song with that too. I was torn between two (and of course promptly forgot both of them, so wrapped up in the writing I was). The two options were Florence & the Machine songs. I initially thought of "Howl" because of the line "If you could only see/The beast you made of me", but then after hearing the divine album Ceremonials (which I truly do mean is divine. Only one other album has ever made it onto my iTunes in its entirety and that's Abbey Road, which I feel is the Beatles at the pinnacle of their powers) and for some reason the opening song "Only If For A Night" has this great line in its chorus, "And the only solution/Was to stand and fight". I mean that just seemed to fit so perfectly with that situation.

    Also, I have spycoder to thank for getting me hooked on Florence so it feels appropriate that I use stuff from her for this game. ;)

    I would have that their is possibility that two people may have been working together to kill the previous king one person outside the castle who planned on gaining fortune and fame while fighting and the other getting loot and spoils from all the people that lost the protection they had while the kingdom was under a single king. So I think it was one of his chief advisers and the leader of one of the biggest bands of marauders that claim no loyalty. Both individuals would have the means together to pull off the plan, the motive to carry it out, and the adviser would have opportunity to get close and finish the job.

    Ooh, do we get a library thread as well, like we had in the temp forum? One of those would be nice.
    EDIT: Disregard above, I forgot prior info.

    On a different note, it is a weird kind of challenging to play a character who just... never speaks. Ever.:p

    L_A - Your update comes tonight. :)

    And Rilwen, it may be complicated, but it's one of the most unique concepts! :D And the trusted squire who acts as a mouthpiece. I just wonder what adventures they've been on together!

    Don't you know? First rule of conspiracies: blame the dead guy.

    If we're blaming dead people, then I'm looking straight at the Kildares graves. ;) Particularly at one sweet blonde lady.

    Just kidding. :p well, a little

    I think we should play the game of predict the next part of the story I predict Mitth_fiso's character is going to try to sell his wears and goods in all the wrong places and have to run around in disguise to get out of trouble.

    Predictions is actually an interesting idea. :D Anybody else have any cool predictions on what is to happen?

    Also, L_A, your update comes tonight, I can promise. :p I have a free hour or so and I'll be able to write some. :)

    No predictions at the moment...I'll have to mull over that one a bit. There's a lot of plot lines going at the moment and I'll need time to actually sit down and go through them to make any kind of real guess!

    As to your other part - free time? What is that? (and before you ask, yes I should be working, but I'm procrastinating!) :p

    A prediction: Gwenn Cliffe never gets together with Lucas (or is it Luca? I'm too lazy to check), despite his very earnest wanting to do so.

    Pretty sure it's actually Lukas, but spell check seems to hate me. :p Changed it to Lucas in my last update.

    There ya'll are!! I've been wunderin' were e'vrybody'd gon to. So ya'll like to sit around big metal chairs with swords stickin' out ov' it now? I've never heard of this game. Was'it called again?

    :D :p

    I haven't read the source material, but I've seen all two seasons. I was a bit...err...shocked by the graphic content :eek: [face_blush] , BUT...the story was compelling enough to keep me watching. Not sure if I'll watch the next season tho.
    Either way, GoT is brilliant writing, with characters you love and characters you love to hate. No one is safe, sadly. LOL!! That being said, I'm enjoying WoK, and The Old King was killed by his son, either directly or indirectly. I immediately thought 'Macbeth'. Whatever happens, I'm happy to be part of WoK. I'm a fish out of water in this RP and I'm both delighted and frightened by my abject mortality!! Maybe I'll find a 'precious' ring during my misadventures....oh, wait!! :p

    Kudos to Spy and each one of you fine RPers. WoK just rocks. Period.

    Macbeth? Hey...what *was* Emilia doing when herfather in-law kicked it? And has she had laundry issues since then? Trouble with spots perhaps?

    I had that thought myself, but I think Han would know now if Emilia were involved. Maybe she does and just isn't saying.

    Or maybe she doesn't. It wouldn't surprise me if spy were to keep that info to himself... :p[face_thinking]

    But whether Emilia was in on it or not, I do think Fenton had something to do with his father's death.

    Perhaps then I am the killer? I don't remember doing it, but we may never know until it is finally revealed, right JediMasterAnne :p

    I definitely agree that Fenton has his prints on this somewhere. The guy is bad news, no matter how you look at it.

    As for Emilia's involvement - at this point, I can say that I'm in the dark with everyone else. Does that mean she's innocent? Well, I guess we'll just have to wait and see. ;)

    If was Fenton he better hope no one finds out and let's everyone know then he might as well call it day. I doubt he will receive any support after that.
