Royal Blood

Elevation of the house is of the utmost importance, and everyone contributes in their own way…some more than others. And nothing would elevate the family like having "royal blood" in the line. Lately, "Plan A" was to get one of the girls married to the king, but since he chose Malvyna Lionheart as his new queen, that plan is defunct. Now "Plan B" is to get Ser Chadd married to the princess, but that will be easier said than done. Arl Thurston and his wife prefer the up-front approach to deal-making. Mama Thornbull is looking to back-channel influence, schmoozing up to the Queen Mother and the king's advisors. The new Queen has her own schemes involving the princess that don't favor House Highhorse, though no one has yet discovered what those plans are. Meanwhile, Ser Chadd would rather just hunt and joust, and couldn't be bothered—and he doesn't speak openly of his reasons, though there are many rumours.
