    Lothair sighs and sits there.

    Should we surrender or fight, Lord Marsh? Richard III's succession is no longer valid...and whoever marries Matilda of England is made King. And sadly, we may be trading for a bad King.

    I have recently made the decision to persue other ventures, more shall we say comfortable ventures, and this leaves me with an abundence on land and title no longer needed. I'm looking for Lords who wish to increase their standing considerably, for a sum of course... And well I thought of you.

    Marsh batted away the cut with his shield... Bran was quick, he would give him that.. but many battles and skirmishes had taught Marsh very well indeed.

    "Continue.."

    From his sick bed, he responded,

    "Without a clear heir, I am not sure there is aught to be gained from throwing the Kingdom into war... In my sickness I am unclear.. who has claimed Mathilda's hand?"

    He was tired and drawn from his fever... He was actually doing quite well for his state of mind.

    They suggested Ulfric, the heir of the Barony of Northamptonshire. However, support for William has grown. He may have command of the 5,000 royal army under Sir John, matching my own army of 7,000 troops from the Order. And you are ill, my lord...the stress of battle would be too much upon you and your sons. And I doubt your daughter would want to risk losing me, her betrothed.

    Lothair sighs as he sits across the room from where Lord Marsh laid.

    The indecisiveness actions of the other nobles continues to hinder our process...perhaps it is best to swear loyalty to William and continue with our lives.

    That is good as it saves me some time finding a buyer. I'm selling the lot, Rounius, Avranchin and Seois. Good productive lands, how much would you be looking at?

    Bran frowned, he never used a shield himself, and was not familiar with attacking them. He would have to change tactics. His blade swept in from the side, viciously, bouncing off Marsh's shield, the bounce was turned into a looping down-cut, deflecting again by the shield, and again the bounce turned into a cut to the legs...

    He sighed, he had no great love for Neville.. but his current state left him little strength to continue the fight.... His son was too inexperienced....

    "I will send my steward to William... See what he intends.. allow him to state his case to us... Without a true heir and united nobility, there is not much we can do separately."

    Marsh frowned, the last statement had been ambiguous...

    "I willing to pay a fair sum for these lands. I fear I have not seen a recent appraisal... but I believe a fair price could be worked out."

    For not having a shield, Bran was attacking well... but it was time to test his defense..

    Marsh dropped the long kite shield down while shifting back... once the strike had bounced, he moving forward with a decisive downward strike at Bran's shoulder..

    Lothair then stands up and bows to Lord Marsh.

    As Grandmaster of the Order of the White Cross and Baron of Bedfordshire...I shall go the Royal Palace to swear loyalty to King William I. It would be best for our families.

    He sees Mary Marsh nearby in the hallway, then leaves the room, praying for the swift recovery of his liege.

    Damn Warrick thought to himself, he had hoped to get a figure out of him before he committed. Oh well.

    I was looking around the 15000 crown mark?

    Bran spun to the side, using the momentum of the spin to strike at Marsh's side as his master's sword slid through the air where Bran had been moments before...

    Marsh sighed, he liked these options no better than Lothair.

    Marsh weighed the price briefly... He would be remiss in not trying to haggle...

    "12500, I hear the Orchards of thy lords lands have been hit by a most terrible drought.."

    Marsh nodded internally, he was quick.. and good at improvising. Marsh sidestepped and parried.. Taking a more offensive stance, he stepped forward with a probing thrust

    Marsh weighed that.. it was very true that Normandy was quite nice patch of Eden.. He had better take the darn bargain when offered... For he was fairly sure it was indeed, a bargain.

    "Indeed? Very well then, 15000 it is."

    Lothair comes to visit the ill Lord Marsh. He greets Mary, his betrothed with warm greeting and gentle affection. He then proceeds to his liege's room and enters, bowing before the bed.

    Your Grace...how fairs your health?

    Warrick smiled before extending his hand.

    A pleasure
