Today, Floris was part of the group guarding one of the main bridges in Arden, with his friend Michel (recently promoted to officer rank during the crisis) as the ranking officer on site. Over the course of the day, we arrested a Baron, allowed the Queen's coach to pass (some things, you just don't want to ask for that much trouble), got into quite a few arguments with Escorts passing back and forth, and -- on Michel's order -- I shot the brother of a rather powerful Countess who seemingly tried to sneak past the checkpoint. So the city is in unrest, several riots broke out but were quelled today, plots and scheming and frantic manuevering are the norm... and Michel and Floris are definitely in the doghouse right now, and I fully expect a rather serious duel challenge from House Rais shortly.
I've not had so much fun with RP for quite some time! This is great. :)
