    Ruh roh. A is likely nobility- fail, and C courage- epic Fail. I can't see the capacity for merriment to help. So 90 B it is.

    So we have a tie between 90C and 90B.

    90C - 79
    90B - 61

    Axe time!

    At least, you meant to bring it down on the throne. The axe is very heavy, and you stumble and twist around as you swing it. The Faerie Queene ducks under the blade, and you end up smashing a crystal candelabrum on an end table.

    "what have you done!" cries the Faerie Queene. "That candelabrum represented his self-control and willingness to abide by the rules of civilized war!"

    "I am sorry, I am sorry!" You try again for the throne, but now your arms are tired, and you narrowly miss the throne, instead destroying most of a tapestry.

    "That was his sartorial taste! Give me that! You only make things worse!" She turns in alarm. "Your crude hackings have alerted him. We must depart at once. Truly, I blame myself. You were not ready." With a flash of light, you and the Faerie Queen are back in the forest and out of Father's mind.

    "I am sorry…" you begin, but she cuts you off.

    "No apology necessary. Magic is a fickle thing, and there will be time to learn. But we are now in a serious position; our meddling did us no good."

Before long, a furious pillow fight has broken out, as the Duke's guards realize that the pillows are just the right size and heft to knock a fairy out of the air. Laughing at the guards, the fairies cooperate to lift pillows of their own, and gleefully do battle with them. Feathers fly everywhere, and shouts of "Not in the head!" ring out.

    The hand-to-hand pillow fighting is brutal, and no quarter is asked or granted.

    Vote 91:

    91A) I go where the fight is thickest, with no thought to my own safety.

    91B) I aid where I can, but I keep my own safety foremost.

    91C) I dive for cover.


    Good luck! See you Monday, 3 Jun, 5 PM EDT!

    Oh, and also I saw this which I thought was funny.



    Meanwhile, into the thick of things!

    The courage penalty represents the damage you took physically, which will make it harder to pass courage tests in the future. Also being hit in the head has not done your wit much good. But it did help the Queen's forces.

    Victory soon, maybe...?

    "I am on your side!" you cry.

    "Oh, very well, very well. I grant that you are on our side, human though you are. Perhaps you are attempting to create some sort of diversion to aid me in my defeat of this knight," General Flickertoes says to you. "But no need! I am up to the task, and I aim for victory on my own. Do not interfere. And fear not. I will not harm you with my mighty onslaught, my ally."

    You are less certain of your safety than General Flickertoes, so you stay behind the shield for the time being.

    "I scoff at your attack!" the Maroon Knight says loftily.

    "You can scoff more effectively if you come out from there!" General Flickertoes points out. "Shields are not fair!" But the Maroon Knight keeps the shield at the ready, knocking aside each of General Flickertoes' missiles.
    It's getting tight again, thanks to the Maroon Knight's skillful pillow-play.

    Quote Originally Posted by Midsummer

    "I grieve, Frederick, that you have chosen to fight against the Duke," he says. "It is most distressing. But I hope you will come in time to see the error of your ways, as I can tell that deep down you are a good and noble subject. Perhaps some day you can meet Lady Robin, who, I have no doubt, will inspire you to loyalty and devotion."
    You think...?

    Quote Originally Posted by Midsummer

The blast flings you and the Maroon Knight apart. Luckily, the large shield protected you from the brunt of the spell, but the Maroon Knight was thrown backward, his armor blackened and charred, and his helmet struck completely off, lying cracked in half nearby.

    Sensing the Maroon Knight's vulnerability, General Flickertoes speeds towards him with a barbed and drugged pin-sword, in an attempt to remove him from the combat.

    As if in slow motion, you take in the scene, seeing the Maroon Knight's face for the first time as he lies there insensible, recovering from the blast.
    Dun dun DUN!

    Quote Originally Posted by Midsummer

    You register the Maroon Knight's identity, even as you realize that General Flickertoes is about to strike a telling blow on him with his drugged darts.

    Vote 92: What do you do?

    92A) Tell General Flickertoes that the truly gallant thing to do would be depart without killing the Maroon Knight.

    92B) I pretend to be the Faerie Queene in disguise, and order General Flickertoes to retreat.

    92C) I throw myself in front of the Maroon Knight and take the blow for him.

    92D) I do nothing, and simply look on silently as the Maroon Knight—Lord Penderghast—is subdued by General Flickertoes.


    So now we know the Maroon Knight's secret identity but he doesn't seem to know ours. So ... do we bail him out or let him get clubbed pillowed into submission? Let me know and we'll decide his fate on Wednesday, 5 Jun 2019, 5 PM EDT!

    I fear I can't say, though I admit I loved it also.

    We have votes for 92c and 92a.

    92c - 90
    92a - 84

    We valiantly throw ourselves in front of the Maroon Knight in the hope of saving him!

    He gasps once, clutches at his wound, and then collapses.

    "Hmph," sniffs General Flickertoes, with satisfaction. "You were going to try to throw yourself in the path of my dart? How noble and self-sacrificing. Very nearly, anyway."

    And with that, he flies speedily away.

    You mournfully drag the unconscious Maroon Knight off the battlefield.

    You are musing on the fortunes of war when you are grabbed from behind and pulled roughly into the forest by a pair of very cold hands.

    It is your snowy twin.
    Doesn't look like we tied her down tightly enough.

    "What do you want?"

    "I considered leaving, but I decided that I would rather wait until everyone's attention was occupied, and then dispose of you. Nobody wants you back, and you clearly did not appreciate your life in the palace. I would be a much better Robin than you. I already am, really."

    "You cannot do that!"

    "Now that the Duke has been defeated, the time of humans is swiftly drawing to a close. I am going to present myself to the Faerie Queene as you, the penitent child of the Duke. She will need a puppet mortal to plant on the mortal throne of the duchy. How fun it will be to watch your—our—Father's face as the Faerie Queene deposes him and replaces him with me? And how much mischief I could cause in a position of such power!"

    Your snow twin laughs a silvery laugh, and a chill wind rattles the leaves.

    "You are the impostor Robin," she says. "Not me!"
    This isn't looking good...

    Vote 93: At this desperate moment, weaponless and alone, how do you defend yourself from your twin and would-be replacement?

    93A) The only thing to do with such a ridiculous evil plan is to laugh at it.

    93B) Perhaps I can force her surrender with the manifest power that belongs to my aristocratic bloodline.

    93C) I am far from defenseless. I call upon the forest to grant me enough magic to strike her with fire, melting her utterly.

    "How…who…?" she says, falling to one knee.

    "Silence." It is not an order, but an observation, and the clearing quiets in anticipation. No birds sing to the rising sun, and the trees cease their rustling.

    Your snowy twin looks at you in terror and anger as you raise one hand.

    "Fire."

    A gout of flame bursts from your snowy twin, and then, as she writhes and melts, her life is extinguished forever.

    The sound returns, and your power recedes. You are yourself again.
    That... that worked?

    : Picks up jaw from floor :

    Well, I suppose it did. Congratulations!

    You stand there for a moment, looking at your dead, melting twin on the ground, and then, without a word, you return to the clearing.
    Exeunt
    That's the end of the scene, and the end of the battle. So let us return to father's bed, where I expect the Queene will have everything under control.

    As you approach Father's bed, you see that the fairy outlaws have disarmed the Duke's soldiers, most of whom have been tied together with slender, strong ropes. Prenzie stands on the side with the noncombatants, and he grins to see you, happy that you survived the battle. Morgan is helping with the prisoners: he ensures that the fairies do not taunt them overmuch.

    The Faerie Queene, sitting in a bed of flowers strewn in the middle of the clearing and attended by General Flickertoes and Piccolita, looks every bit the victor. She nearly glows with otherworldly beauty and power as she addresses the Duke and informs him what the terms of surrender will be.

    "Ah, my dear Frederick," says the Faerie Queene in silvery tones. "You, without whom none of this would be possible. My prize, my darling. Come. Sit by me, and we will speak of your reward for aiding me soon enough."

    Vote 94: How do you respond?

    94A) "The pleasure was mine, O Faerie Queene. I am your most humble servant, eager to serve you in whatever you deem fit."

    94B) You nod seriously, your mind elsewhere. The battle has been won, but you are in no mood for idle words.

    94C) "It was fun," you say. "I would do it again. Next time you go raiding, I will be there."

    The clearing falls silent.

    "No!" cries Father, and he seems to age before your eyes, as he gazes at what he can only assume is his dead daughter at his feet. "Is this the promised end?" Even the Faerie Queene weeps and tears at her hair to see this dreadful sight.

    "Who can cease to weep and look on this?" says Doctor Nostrum, shaking his head. He takes the dead wrist and holds it for a moment. "The blood no longer is quick, and her skin is clammy and cold. Alas, she is fled from this weary world."

    The Maroon Knight falls to one knee, holding his head in his hands. "My love, my everything, my Maria," ${pen_he} says. "Farewell. You are among the angels now."

    Morgan looks guilty and anguished, but Prenzie just looks perplexed, looking back and forth between you and the melting corpse.

    A hasty grave is dug, and the melting body is laid out within, on a bed of cypress and willow branches.

    "I think nobody is better suited to say a few words over the body of poor Maria than this wandering scholar," Prenzie says with a twinkle in his eyes. Everyone agrees and looks towards you.

    Vote 95: What kind of funeral speech do you make?

    95A) I make an tearful speech in which I make it clear that everyone is responsible, making everyone feel guilty and wretched.

    95B) I keep the tone light, saying that Maria is in a better place.

    95C) I blame the Duke for her death.


    95D) I blame the Faerie Queene for her death.

    95E) I smile mysteriously and announce that Maria isn't dead at all. Then I pause for dramatic effect.


    Well, we're giving the speech at our own funeral . Make it good, and I'll see you Monday, 10 Jun, 2019, 5 PM EDT!

    "You forced poor Robin to run away from home. Had it not been for your petty demand that she marry according to your desire, she would be home now, happily enjoying the day. Instead, you chose to shout and enforce your will."

    You turn to the crowd. "And so we bury poor Robin, a victim to her father's cruelty. Let us all bid her farewell and pray for the Duke's soul."

    Father turns ashen with grief and anger, but says nothing, guilt racking him.

    There is commotion and uproar, and Constable Growly shakes his head sadly, as if weeping at the corruption of the world.

    "Well, you monster, who I once saw as a friend, what do you have to say for yourself?" Constable Growly says. "I was hiding in the trees, quite far up, and so I couldn't hear what you two spoke about or even see you both very well—that I grant you. But I know this: you had some kind of violent argument with Robin, and by the end of it, you were alive and she was cold and dead. I've never seen quite so clear a case of murder in all my years! How could you? What sort of villain are you? What can you possibly say to defend yourself?"

    The crowd screams for vengeance.

    Vote 96: How do you respond?

    96A) Steadfastly deny everything.

    96B) Launch into the exciting tale of how it came to pass that you killed your snowy twin.

    96C) Beg for mercy.


    Hopefully the Queen will speak up; surely she's the one who created the twin of snow?

    Let's find out Wednesday, 12 Jun 2019, 5 PM EDT

    See you then!

    Respectfully,

    The RNG and I have a love hate relationship.
    (Unlike our relationship with the Duke. Hope we don't need his favour for something any time soon...)

    I doubt this does much, but 96A

I suspect that you may not, in fact, really be a scholar after all, but a hired killer from Lower Fogsworth, sent to slay our beloved Duke's heir. You disgust me."

    "Death to the traitor!" howls one of the shepherds, and the crowd echoes the call, even as Prenzie tries to declare your innocence and Morgan shouts above the crowd, trying to talk some sense into Constable Growly.

    "No!" you shout, and suddenly pull away from Constable Growly with a sharp jerk.
    things are getting tense ...

    The Faerie Queene, with tears still filling her eyes, but now with a dawning sense of recovery and hope, slowly uncovers her own left shoulder, revealing the snake birthmark upon it.

    As if in a daze, she approaches you. "I do not know how it is possible. But you are my daughter, disguised though you may be! You are not dead at all!"

    The Duke, too, wipes a tear away from his eye. "My dear Robin, could it possibly be true?"

    Constable Growly lumbers over to the melting snow fairy in the grave and reveals her shoulder, which has no birthmark. "This was an impostor. A malevolent fairy who was attempting to masquerade as you, in all likelihood. Looks like I've solved this mystery." He seems very pleased with himself.
    We're ... we're the daughter of the Duke and the Faerie Queene? So THAT's where the magic power comes from.


    Vote 98: What do you do at this most emotional of moments?

    98A) Go to…Mother?…and embrace her.

    98B) Go to Father and embrace him.

    98C) Demand that Father and Mother embrace each other, and you, at once.

    98D) Stand speechless in bewilderment.

    Doctor Nostrum interrupts. "Why, that was only a year or so after you were born," he says. "I remember. It struck so suddenly, and His Grace's humors have never been the same since."

    "Yes," Father agrees. "It was soon after the Faerie Queene requested that I give you back, and I refused…what are you suggesting? You can't mean…"

    You don't get the option of not healing him, but consider: Much of his surliness is due to his constant illness. This is pretty close to our last skill test. Good luck! Can you make a really happy ending?

    But you are so imperious in your demand that they give in. The Faerie Queene steps over to the bed and embraces Father, stiffly at first, but then softening. You join them, together as a family for just a moment.

    You step back after a bit, and look back and forth between them.

    "I shall."

    "So be it," Father says. "For now."

    "For now."
    Ten years is a long time for humans. Plenty of time to make a permanent peace, or renew the truce, or take other measures to prevent another war. Robin will be in her twenties by then.

    She makes a releasing motion with her hand, and Father suddenly sits upright in bed.

    "Careful, Your Grace! Not too quickly!" cautions Doctor Nostrum.

    But Father leaps out of bed and begins to frisk about the clearing in his nightshirt, hallooing to the sky with joy.

    He embraces you, he embraces the Faerie Queene, and he even embraces several of his guards, before Doctor Nostrum can catch up to him and throw a dressing gown over him.

    "We shall now have some light music and decide on the fate of my child," she says, clapping her hands. A consort of fairy musicians begin playing minuscule harps and lutes. "I believe that…"

    "Robin is betrothed already," Father interrupts. "I betrothed her to Lord Penderghast—the Maroon Knight—before she ran away from home in such an absurd fashion."

    The Faerie Queene turns to you, as she accepts a thimble-sized draught of lemon water from a bowing fairy. "Is this so? Have you been promised? Let me look upon this Lord Penderghast."

    The Maroon Knight steps forward, his rusty armor clanking, and his sword clattering to the ground as he approaches you. You are still unused to seeing the Maroon Knight without his helmet on, to thinking of him as the aged Lord Penderghast.

    Lord Penderghast looks only at the Faerie Queene, and seems lost in thought.

    The Faerie Queene stands, walks in a complete circle around the Maroon Knight, and then sits again.

    "I do not love the smell of this one," she says. "He reeks of iron and the mundane world. He opposed me at every turn and has no love for my—for our kind. Nevertheless, I am interested to hear what Robin has to say. Is it your will that you marry Lord Penderghast?"

    "It is not a question of 'will…'" Father tries to interrupt again, but the Faerie Queene silences him with a look.

    Vote 101: Will you marry Lord Penderghast?

    101A) "Yes, Mother. It is my will that I marry Lord Penderghast. I love him."

    101B) "I will marry Lord Penderghast for the good of the duchy."

    101C) "No, Mother. I do not wish to. I have chosen another path."

    FOLLOW UP IF 101C is chosen:

    101C.1) "…Prenzie."

    101C.2) "…Morgan."

    101C.3) "…Piccolita."

    101C.4) "…being on my own. I have found happiness in my freedom."


    Consider your relationships with these characters, as well as your own desire for Robin. I've tracked those graphs on the first page of the thread; so far you have positive relationships with Prenzie and Morgan. You have a negative relationship with Lord Penderghast, but you can still marry him out of duty. I don't think Piccolita likes us well enough to make a go of it ,but we can try.


    It looks like there are some follow-on votes for some of these , if we choose them. Morgan, for instance, still faces an accusation of treason which will have to be resolved if we choose him.

    Good luck! Let us settle these affairs of the heart. With fortune, we'll get this all wrapped up in time for the real midsummer.

    Have your votes in by Wednesday, 19 Jun 2019, 5 PM EDT and we shall celebrate Robin's marriage or freedom!

    Respectfully,

    Brian P.

    "…Morgan."

    "I approve of your choice," the Faerie Queene says. "And it demonstrates mercy, forgiveness, and all of those other values that you mortals seem to care about so much. I give my assent."

    "Your assent hardly matters," Father scoffs. Then he turns to you.

    "You are still very innocent in the ways of the world, Robin. Morgan is very nice indeed. Well-mannered, elegant, and so forth. You have become enamored of him in some sort of childish way." Father chuckles humorlessly. "I do understand that. But that is wholly irrelevant to our purposes here. You have a duty to uphold."

    You will not be talked to in this way. "I love Morgan," you insist, with an intensity that surprises you. "I want to spend my life with him."

    Morgan steps out of the crowd and stands by your side, looking defiantly at Father.

    Father's nostrils flare. "Now see here, Morgan. I welcomed you to my court to offer you some training in the ways of court politics, not to nurture a serpent within my walls."

    Morgan sighs. "Your Grace, I do apologize for keeping the truth from you. However, I have loved Robin since the first moment I saw her."
    Aww...

I have made private inquiry regarding Morgan's character and I have reason to believe that he is a spy from Lower Fogsworth, sent here to steal information on our political and military dealings."

    "Morgan, is this true?" Father roars.

    Morgan flushes and looks at you, and then at Father. "I will not deny it."

    "How dare you? Arrest this traitor at once! Lower Fogsworth swine!"

    Constable Growly startles and approaches Morgan to apprehend him.

    "Father, wait!" you cry.

    Father pauses. "Yes? Traitors are to be put to death. That is the law. Why, what would you have me do with this traitor?"

    Vote 102:

    102A) "I…suppose the law says that he should be banished from the duchy forever."
    FOLLOWUP
    102A.1) Go into exile with Morgan
    102A.2) Stay here.

    102B) "Wait, Father! If you spare Morgan's life, I will agree to marry Penderghast!"

    102C) "I beg you, Father. Please forgive Morgan."

    102D) I make a brief gesture and focus my magic on Father. "You should forgive Morgan and give him a big reward."


    Consider your skills, your relationship with Father, and your relationship with Morgan. Depending on the choices, you can both stay together, or one or both of you will go into exile. The choice is yours! See you Friday, 21 Jun 2019, 5 PM EDT as we decide his fate and ours!

    "You do not want to do this for me," Morgan says. "Your Grace, she doesn't mean it."

    "I mean every word." Father and you glare at each other, but you are unable to bear his fury and disappointment, and you look down.

    "Then leave," Father says. "If you will go, go. I do not need an heir who is so disobedient, so willful, so set on opposing her will to mine at every turn. Go, and take both this traitor and my curse with you."

    The Faerie Queene sighs.

    "I did not wish to bring this up until it was necessary," she says. "But the laws of magic must be heeded. Robin has eaten fairy food while in the forest. By ancient compact, she must remain here with me."

    Father is staggered. "Is this true?"

    You think for a moment.

    "I did," you confess. "I feasted upon fairy food in preparation for entering your mind."

    "You what?" Father says.

    "Therefore, Robin must remain with me," the Faerie Queene says. "By eating of our food, you have become one of us, even more than you were before."

    "It is settled then," Father snarls. Morgan will depart at once, and Robin will live, I suppose, with you, having trodden on her ancestors and thrown down everything I have tried to teach her. So be it."

    So. Calling his bluff didn't work because his fury is still too high. We can't stay with Morgan. He and Robin are separated.

    At first, the pain struck deeply. You made the choices that seemed best to you. Mother reassured you that you did only what you felt was right.

    In the beginning, you thought about Morgan every moment. Every blade of grass reminded you of him. Every time you heard the distant laughter and frolicking of the fairies seemed like a betrayal.

    You used to go visit the Faerie Queene's magic mirror and scry magically on Morgan, to see how he was doing in exile.

    But the Faerie Queene warned you that the magic mirror could only could bring you sadness. If Morgan was laughing, you would weep, and if he was weeping, you would weep as well.

    Here in the Arbor of Healing you stay, then. You aren't sure how many years have passed. Time is strange here in the Arbor. At times, you hear fairies speak in whispers of affairs from outside, in…that's so strange.

    You can barely remember the name of the place you once lived. They speak of a man called the Duke, and a battle, but of course, that was very, very long ago.

    You have not left the arbor yet, but you are growing stronger now. Some day, very soon, you will be healed of your sorrow. But not today.

    THE END
    ACHIEVEMENT: The Arbor of Healing. The Arbor heals slowly, but wholly.

    So .. that's the end of the playthrough.

    Do you guys want to retry the last choice? If you want to try for a better ending, I'll allow it once. I'll give you a hint -- I think Enchantment would be your best bet. Let me know your decision by Monday, 24 Jun ,5 PM and your choice on the last action -- vote 102-- if you want to retry the one time. If not, thank you for playing and I hope you enjoyed it!

    Respectfully,

    Brian P.

    Well, I can't say our play deserved a happy ending. but seeing as our enchantment > fathers fury, and because it's a hint even I can spot... shall we go for, oh, I dunno. Option D?

    ...And yes I did enjoy it, Thank you, and must confess to recently purchasing a copy from choice of game, though I've not gone down this path. (Thank heavens.) I didn't find a second or third play through as rewarding as study in steampunk: the resolution changes a bit but unless I've missed the lethal interesting edge cases, the plot is highly linear and forced right up to the final act.

    I have to ask though... how do you know which skill we've been failing each time?
