Morgana and the Damsels in distress

A might have happened action from 'Exiled!'

The Adventures of Morgana Vol I

Background Situation (As issued to public participation game players.)

You are Lady Morgana, now due to force of circumstances a lady errant! Your father and brother having been murdered, you are now heiress to considerable estates. Unfortunately your father's brothers hatched a plot to seize these. They killed your brother Arthur, when he tried to stop your Aunt Lady Abigail from being taken off to be burnt for witchcraft. You were to be either burnt or forced to become a nun. With your menie, you have rescued Aunt Abigail and killed two of the wicked Uncles. These operations have caused the following writs to be proclaimed against you:


The Lady Morgana Lefey, is hereby ordered to present herself for trial with her menie, for the unlawful killing of four servants of the late

Captain of Charles, Sir Phanuel Lefey. The said Lady is also accused of using a bladed weapon in excess of three hands in length. The trial to be held at the Citadel, Charles, on the first day of the third Moon 706ATN. If she fails to attend, she and her menie shall be declared Outlaw.

                                                By Order     Basylt Devisage,                                                                               Grand Duke of Bara

 Church of Eru Ordinance

Wanted, dead or alive, the miscreants: Sir Richard Nogent, Lady Abigail Clove, Lady Morgana Lefey, a number of demons in their control, including one of dwarf stature. For murders most foul, witchcraft, theft and sacrilege. Also the escaped fugitives: Miss Edie a witch, Miss Vanova a witch and Miss Louise Berde under suspicion of witchcraft.

                                                                                                Decreed by

                                                                                Innocent, Bishop of Charles

You have had years of sword fencing practise and killed both Sir Congal and Sir Phanuel in fair fight. You have some magic powers and your sword, chalice and gown are enchanted. Kindly Lady Abigail is indeed a white witch. The rest of your party have more humdrum abilities. They comprise Sir Richard Nogent, Lady Abigail Clove, Sergeant Hrolf, Arbalister Bergand, the Dwarf Locksmith Minut son of Moltin, Tonaldo the minstrel and Mistress Cherry your abigail. (An abigail is a lady's maid) 

You had been hiding in the Bois de Proscit forest but the authorities had tracked you there. Now you wish to escape across the broad river Arwyn, to friendly Stetia. Don Incio a Stetian knight, has gone to collect two ships, capable of taking your party with all its mounts across the river. You hope he will bring them to the village of Minbec tonight. Minbec will have received the above writs, so you intended to delay entering it, until Don Incio brings his vessels. You have to make the decisions, as most of your party are bound to you by an elixir of devotion, given from your Vinkalik magic chalice.

Today's Problem (It is Marketday 27th Second Moon 706 ATN)

Around the eleventh hour, you were bringing the rest of your party to hide in this small wood, when the servant woman Peurise rode up to you. "Milady Morgana, pray will you send your men to rescue my mistress? The Narchadians have taken the village! They captured me and Lady Eglantine! Their Leader is sending me to Sir Edouard, to demand a 1000 Gilden Pezzi Ransom for her! Plus monies for Lady Lys and any of the commoners they also hold prisoner? Unless I am back with the money before nightfall, they will take her and the villagers off to slavery!" You know Lady Eglantine Condamet is a harmless (even insipid) damsel of 17 years. Sir Edouard is her infirm grandfather, who lives in a fortified manor two hours ride distant. You immediately realise that it is your bounden duty as a lady errant, to rescue Eglantine (Your party has only around 350 Gilden Pezzi between it) Sir Richard Nogent says, "Minbec should have been guarded by Sir Geraint Morse, he is the Customs officer there. Lady Lys is his wife. Likely he and his men have been taken by surprise. Many of the villagers will have gone to the market at Arlo today. Coming here I sighted but one tall mast at the quay. Perhaps not more than twenty raiders therefore for us to deal with?"

You must best further question Peurise regarding the village situation?

You know that the unicorns are capable, if well ridden of jumping the palisade fence.
