It’s been a busy week. Odessa Martell is now officially married to Gareth Swann, Alanna Flowers is pregnant. Iyla Baratheon gave birth to twins, and at Marei Arnall and Theodal Rykkers wedding the King died.
A poorly constructed theatre played into the attempts of the Golden Dragons to kill the monarch. The tar covered monstrosity was stacked high with rum. At the end of the controversial play being put on to honour the wedding and the king, No Good Nigel, a builder, took the stage and revealed himself to secretly beZevran Sand. He then used the poorly made lights constructed by Golvin Salame to make the whole place burst aflame. Many were killed in the desperate scrabble to escape. Those sitting in the king’s box, namely Daeron, Frederik Hightower, Hamlet Rykker, Lord Rykker, and Lady Sylavia Bernarr, found it hardest to escape. Lord Rykker and Hamlet Rykker both died but Lady Sylavia and Lord Hightower escaped, be it with grievous wounds. King Daeron was protected by his anti-wildfire gel but got trapped under rubble and badly injured.
People reacted quickly, including Michael, Garwen, Lord Stonebreaker, Lady Nymera, and the happy couple themselves. Lord Stonebreaker managed to retrieve the King’s body, still barely breathing. Lady Nymera tended to him and other injured. Lady Marei had everyone accounted for and had records taken of what had happened.
King Daeron was briefly revived before he died and talked to several people.
The final death count was; King Daeron, Lord Rykker, Hamlet Rykker, Sigismund the Archer, Black Walder Frey, assorted other Freys, Rhys and Tristifer and Benji and Tess and Elise of Softstone, Nonton and Ollen Margan, Ser Callus Morrigen of the Kingsguard, Ser Tarn Whiskeyjack of the Kingsguard and other assorted guards.
The injured include Lord Hightower, Lysa the maid, Perra Frey, Maekar Stonebreaker, and many others.
(Tell me if you want someone added.)
The king’s body was quickly transported back to Kings Landing, along with certain notables. Lady Arnall insisted on being arrested upon arrival. Lady Valerius gathered Lord Hightower,Lord Stonebreaker, and Golvin Salame to deal with the aftermath. They agreed on a split regency for Prince Adrian and to pursue the Golden Dragons and the Rykkers. Golvin Salame also learned he came into a lot of money.Meanwhile rumours swirl of secret Targaryens and plots to the throne. Lady Illyria and the Martells as well as Derryk Baratheon have all been named as possible conspirators.
Queen Della seems heartbroken. Our best wishes are with her.
