The Herren ( Lords of the 6 Manors which comprise the Duchy of Tradgardland ) met together today to dine together and discuss their concerns for the coming Seasons. Gossip surrounds the banqueting table like flies around a corpse. The talk soars above the laughter and sounds of eating and many toasts. They speak of a rumour that the Duchess is with child and debate wherein the succession will lie.
The meal finished and the cellars emptied of wine, the Herren take a stroll amongst the topiary of Drottigen Manor. Alliances are made , trysts arranged and plans made - all in the brilliant Spring sun amongst the yew.
