OOC
There are several segments that need to go in here.
  • Leadership 101 - Approval of the training plan
  • Marshalling the troops
  • Chunk on Myrin officially be accepted by the town and likely some events in honor of Daejyre's visit.


Leadership 101
right-aligned image
Myrin chuckled at Deajyre's response "Mistress, you continue to help me grow. So, plan B for your and Kailu's approval. The two of you will become the Judges for the various training exercises. I will take over a 'Training Officer' for both the Imperial Platoon and the militia. I would plan to run the groups through a variety of skill assessments, then do a variety of skill-building exercises, followed by tactical maneuvers and then a final set of skill assessments. As an example, take archery. First, we would start with basic shooting at targets for a score. Second, we would move to shoot at unknown distances and shooting on the move. Then a tactical exercise where two groups would be skirmishing with one group advancing and the other retreating. Finally, we bring the group back to the range shooting for scores but add in something like unknown distances. At a minimum, I would like to train the two groups on bow and sword fighting, as well as tracking and stealth movement."

"In addition to training the troops, this would be an excellent opportunity for the various squad leaders. In addition to training and assessing their soldiers, they can provide structured and or impromptu training sessions. For me, it will be an opportunity to demonstrate my ability to plan and execute. I think that having you and Sir Kailu as the judges and overseeing will provide a little extra tension that routine exercises would not."


IC Marshalling the troops
Myrin called together the squad leaders from both the Imperial Platoon and the Militia. The group gathered in an old barn that currently served as the militia's armory. Myrin's next order of business was dealing with the word of Myrin's binding with the Crown Princess and her new position as Baroness of Wesgar. "Yes, I have come back from the Capitol with some fancy titles. Right now, there is only one title that matters a jot. I am 'Squire Myrin' to all of you. I am the Platoon XO for the Imperial Platoon, I was a Sergeant in the Militia, and most importantly, I am the training officer for this evolution."

Myrin went over the basic outline of her training plan, end with "I expect some friendly rivalry between the squads as well as between Imperial and Militia. As well, everyone will be a bit on edge with the Grande Dame and Crown Princess watching. However, let's not lose sight of the real objective here - which is to get all of us ready for a fight. Make sure that we come home, and the enemy does not. To that end, I expect all of you to pitch in and do your part, motivating and training all of the troops, not just your particular squads. Also, be aware that as we move into the tactical exercises, I may well mix and match forces between the Imperial Platoon and the Militia.
"


After going over the training plan, the Imperial Platoon and the militia adjourned to the Inn in town. Knowing the limited housing in the village, Myrin had elected to House Daejyre and herself in Nualla's now closed shop. She had hired one of the local girls to act as cook and maid for the two of them. Myrin had Sir Kailu lodged in Tanithil's house.

IC Myrin Gilsys Fighter - Revenant Blade Master and Eldrich Knight
left-aligned image

Myrin was getting to the end of her speech when she saw something dart out of the audience. She tracked the object with her eyes, and as it came toward her lover, Crown Princess Daejyre, she thought with alarm "An assassin, I have failed her." Daejyre was alert for a threat because Myrin focused on her speech, and everyone else focused on Myrin. With her monkish skills, Daejyre plucked the blowgun dart out of the air and threw it back at the assassin; scoring a hit and highlighting the target for Myrin.

The threat to Daejyre shocked Myrin out of her speech and into action. Myrin fighting style was more offensive than defensive. Also, she knew from experience that Daejyre would be better able to defend herself without bodyguards trying to shield her.

Myrin burst into action, running toward the Assassin. Myrin drew her Double-Scimitar for her quiver of Ephona. Cathing up with the Assassin, Myrin went into a flury of blows. The assassin was able to dodge Myrin's first two attacks. However, she swept the other end of the Double scimitar around and caught the assassin by surprise. In a surge of action, Myrin pressed her advantage, hitting the assassin twice more.

Daejyre Amastacia, Crown Princess of Cormanthyr, Knight of Myth Drannor, Monk of the Way of the Sun Soul
left-aligned image
Daejyre made a stunning acrobatic move to somersault across the table in order to engage her assailant. She was not the type to hide behind anyone. Someone had dared to take a shot at her, and she meant to shut that down forthwith. She glided agilely through the civilians who were starting to cry out in a panic. Hopefully her soldiers would do their jobs and lock this place down, working on crowd control to calm everyone. The civilians were not the problem, but steps needed to be taken to ensure that the would be assassin couldn't get away.

Daejyre would let her people do their jobs. They had been trained for this type of scenario, and a sergeant looking to prove themselves could certainly make substantial progress towards that goal by leading their squad and following proper protocol here. She had bigger fish to fry.

Myrin had already softened her assailant up nicely by the time she got there. This battle would be over quickly as a result. She came in hot with a flying kick. The would be assassin had some moves. They deftly avoided the strike. She caught them with a jab. Daejyre followed that up with an uppercut to the body, but failed to connect. In dodging the blow; however, they left their chin exposed to a solid cross that put them down.

"Some security. Perhaps her ladyship would learn to provide better after a firm whipping." The Reeve sneered.

Daejyre turned to glare at him. Her regal demeaner was placed by the countenance of one who was truly pissed. "Take the Reeve into custody! I want answers as to how this assailant came to be dressed in the garb of one of his household servants. You dare ask that your baroness be whipped for failing to provide adequate security? I'm more inclined to believe, based on the evidence I see, that you were the one who let the fox into the henhouse. Sir Kailu, as you are both a skilled combat medic and a trusted officer under my command, I'm asking you to personally ensure the physical safety and fair treatment of my assailant. I would discover their motives, so there are to be no accidents that permanently silence them before they have the opportunity to provide testimony against their accomplices. Baroness, as I have already tasked Sir Kailu with one formidable task, I'm going to have to ask you to oversee the internal investigation into the security breech."

"She will do anything to get out of trouble, including help frame me?" The Reeve protested.

Daejyre started to say that she knew no such thing and has thus found Myrin to be a woman of honor, but remembered that her place her was to advise and support the baroness. She held her tongue and allowed Myrin to speak for herself, lest she inadvertently undermine her.

IC Myrin Gilsys Fighter - Revenant Blade Master and Eldrich Knight
left-aligned image
Myrin sheathed her double scimitar. The time for combat was over. However, the battle was far from won.

Silently, Myrin called out to Stars "Watch the house, no one not in Imperial livery is to leave the house. If you see someone leaving, let me know."

Myrin called out to the first squad's sergeant "Rychell. Send a runner. Turn out the entire platoon and bring them here. Roust any of the bivouacked militia. The militia is to be on guard."

Myrin turned to look at the assembled guests "Someone just tried to assassinate the Crown Princess, in our Barony. What is worse is that the assassin wore the livery of one of the Barony's senior servants. No one is leaving until we get to the bottom of this."

Myrin turned to the Reeve. Outwardly, her face was impassive. Inwardly anger wared with fear. Anger that the Reeve would try to assassinate her love and fear that the Reeve had gotten close. Myrin thought "I sought to goad the Reeve into attacking. However, it was to me the Baroness and not my love."

Myrin's voice was painfully polite "As the assassin wore your livery and you are the senior local official, you will understand that I must detain you until we get to the bottom of this."

After Sir Kailu healed the assassin, Myrin searched them for weapons and poison. Additionally, Myrin looked for any clues as to their employer. Myrin had the killer bound so that they could not commit suicide.

Myrin had the soldiers escort the staff into the kitchen. The staff was ordered not to talk amongst themselves. Then, she proceeded to interrogate each staff member. Myrin attempted to discern from whence the assassin had come and who had vouched for them on the staff. Myrin had Sir Kailu assist her in the interrogation.
