Ring [Trysvale] [Leonardes] The Baron's Estates




The Baron & Baroness' Estates


The Mansion
Established on Imperos, Era XVI the Barony of House Leonardes comprised its industrious fifty-one thousand acres aptly named Trysvale Corn & Wheat. Those farmlands along the Northern Road was the life stream of the city, breathing foodstuffs into the heart of the TTC (or Trysvale Trading Company) for at least a dozen seasons now. Its establishment came at a time of change for not only House Leonardes but also Trysvale as a whole. Following the dreaded Longest Winter, Straylor Felix Leonard felt it was finally time to pass the baton of leadership to his trusted friend Marcus Euacus, his former Vice Thane. With him acting as Lord Protector, the former Thane was free to receive new orders and an appointment as Governor to Eunesia. Several years later, following the Eunesian Blockade and deportation of all mainlanders from the isles, the exiled governor returned to Northumbria on a more permanent basis.

The Barony was a gift from His Royal Excellency, Prince Milo the First, a show of confidence and a sign of trust between the former Consul, Thane, and personal friend to the Sovereign. Each smaller manor on those one hundred acre sectors were readily repaired and renovated following the return of Autumn. Those barns that suffered holes and dented frames were righted and straightened at last, reinforced with tin and stone to fend off the coming Carmelyn Winter. But on the premiere one hundred acres, where Straylor once lived as a common farmer and then Chief Constable of the city, sat the newly adorned crown of the Barony.

The Parlor

The manor was transformed into a magnificent mansion fitting a Baron and a Baroness. Red brick walls rose up forming two stories of the countryside estates of the Lord and Lady of Trysvale. Hidden among willows and oak trees, the master's suites faced the east to see the Suns Rise each brightening while the front porch aligned with each passing Suns Set. The original dirt path leading to the old manor was paved with cobblestones and framed with black iron gates leading visitors and old friends alike to the double white doors of the main entrance of the mansion.

The Baron's Estates employed hundreds of servants, footmen, squires and knights. Approaching the estate grounds led visitors through a small garden which bloomed more brightly than any other field in Trysvale. Some attribute this to House Leonardes' expert gardeners, while others insist that it is the Baron's magic that influence everything from his private gardens to his immense farmlands to grow unreasonably well. A dozen or so brick steps led up to the main entrance of the mansion, which was guarded by two footmen who were charged to act as heralds and hosts at once. Stable boys were usually summoned whenever a carriage or guest on horseback arrived, allowing Straylor and Elmaryia's friends and visitors to enjoy a level of luxury rarely found away from the Empire's cosmopolitan areas.

Inside a hallway branched into three separate living spaces: the kitchen, living room, and dining hall. Beneath the house was a spacious cellar which kept cool most stored foods and wines; and above was the attic, which doubled as additional storage for Straylor and Elmaryia's wardrobes and other belongings. The second floor had eight bedrooms, including the master suite, and the Baron's private study. A dance hall formed the east wing of the mansion, with a library to the west. There were three parlors in all, each of them used for different occasions. At the rear of the mansion were the kitchens and servant quarters which opened to the gardens and stables. The Baron and Baroness' love for their animals was made famous by their collection of exotic animals ranging from the hounds that constantly patrolled the estate grounds to the falcons and wyverns the Baron was said to have trained himself.


The Library
Oak and redwood were used to frame the interior along with stone quarried from the nearby mines and marble from Eunesia. The dining area was furnished with large, comfortable sofas and decorated with family portraits along with some famous pieces by Hay'aan Malinconico and even the renown Iseult Fluersdotter. Beautifulcarpets filled each room and luxurious rugs were placed within the main dining room and parlors. Straylor's exotic trophies and Elmaryia's keepsakes also decorated certain areas of the mansion, ranging from cruel orc-made weapons to a collection of artifacts. In the darkening, the mansion became alight with candles and chandeliers while its exterior was basked in torchlight.

A pair of footmen dressed in House Leonardes livery stood before the black iron gates leading into the estates at all times. Mounted patrols from the local constabulary augmented by the Baron's knights were also a frequent sight along the northern road. Those approaching the mansion via carriage or horseback were waved down to a stop by the armed guards.

"Serale!" the first footman said with a brief smile.

The second Trysvallian added, "Could you state the purpose of your visit?"

It was also a well-known fact that the Baron's men never ignored those seeking aid from the Baron and Baroness, and refugees and victims of crimes, famine, or ill-fortune always found sanctuary there. The Baron and Baroness' kitchens were always readying meals for those who had none to eat, a warm bed awaited any traveler lost on the road, and a quick smile was awarded to all those who sought the two most prominent figures in Trysvale's modern history.

Pitcher The Four Seasons ~




Springtime was a season of beauty and rebirth on the Baron's Estates. Following the Longest Winter, the manor grounds exploded with wildflowers and greenery previously forgotten during the era-long snowfall. The willows, birch, and ancient oaks littered throughout the thousands once again bloomed and leaves danced on their gnawed branches. Birds were seen chasing each other and rebuilding their nests, while a plethora of insects buzzed and hummed in anticipation of warmer months to come. Spring was also the busiest time for the farmlands. The soil had to be cleared of debris from the winter months and readied, watered, and tilled to take seeds. Horse teams of twos and fours could be seen tilling the earth in seemingly endless rows from suns rise to suns set while others took to digging deeper wells, mending fences, and manning the wagons that hauled stinking loads of fish fertilizer from one sector to another.



Summertime was simply brilliant on the Trysvale C&W. By now seedlings had grown into tall stalks and if they were luck, the farmhands would have been celebrating their first harvest not long ago. Summer meant focusing on tending the growth and ensuring that pests were taken care of immediately. Thanks to Straylor's Druidism, most pests were repelled by Arcana. But those persistent critters had to be dealt with by regular patrols of farmhands and their loyal hounds. Thieves were an unpleasant problem as well, though the Baron was known for his generosity - his patience had its limits. Mounted guardsmen from the City Constabulary were a regular sight along the northern roads, but banditry was still a known occurrence during the months of plenty. To ward off even the most notorious of criminals, the Baron was said to conjure all manner of beasts that patrolled the earth and skies. This alone ensured that thieves would at least think twice before attempting to steal from House Leonardes.



Autumn, or Harvest, was the most vibrant season of all. Fields turned into fiery shades of orange and gold while the trees of the surrounding Hinterlands turned into haunting skeletons of their former selves. Only the pines and evergreens leading north toward the Aerwoods would retain their emerald crowns. The Baron and his House celebrate the holy rites with the druids of Carmelya, and sponsor the many festivities that mark the end of the season of plenty. Trysvale C&W will soon shift from harvesting to storing as the last shipments for the TTC are made. The thousands of men and women employed by the Baron soon find themselves among the most fortunate in the township - while all the farmhands must now eke out a living as common laborers and indentured servants in other cities, employees of the Trysvale C&W receive full pay during the winter months, a benefit unheard of before. The Baron and Baroness were even known to provide room and board for their employees throughout the era, not just during the harvest months. As the brightenings shorten and the darkenings grow colder, Trysvale prepares for another winter before springtime returns again.

Nikki L'Evienne, future Mrs. de Lylles ~

A wedding.

The missive arrived on the Baron's hands via a footman, who quickly secured a fresh inkpot from a nearby cabinet. Straylor soon prepared the parchment with a pressing stone and warmed a nearby wax block in preparation for his seal. The return missive was simple and plain. Containing only what was required: the titles of those receiving the letter, and the congratulations from both the Governor of Eunesia and the Royal Consul to the Carmelyn Province.

Once he was done, Straylor pinched some sand from a nearby jar and sprinkled it onto the parchment to dry the ink a little faster. He then prepared a scroll tube, rolled his letter firmly, and then inserted it into the case -- sealing it with the golden lions of House Leonardes. "To Lauryl" he told the footman, then indicated the address on the scroll tube. "Send a pair of riders. Make sure it arrives on time."

"Yes sir" the footman bowed, then departed with haste.

Straylor remained behind his desk, smiling. This was going to be fun. And he promised himself that he'd ensure the ceremony went along smoothely. Nikki had been there, along with her sister, to defend him and Elmaryia during their ceremony. If not for the two L'Eviennes and the former Archpriestess of the Church of Faith, Elmaryia may have been removed from his life forever.

It was good to be among friends again. And Straylor could only hope that Rougenoe and Iseult were present as well.

Timestamp: 2nd Cycle of Tempris in the Season of Autumn, Era XVII Post-Fractum.

A change of pace was what Vanderlou needed, the increasing demand for his services this season had doubtlessly helped him improve his reputation in Jaedaxia, but even an able-bodied young man was only able to take so much before needing a break from the hectic city life that he had carelessly immersed himself into. The baron's request for his services had given him an excuse to head out into the countryside and as quickly as the missive arrived at his doorstep, the half-elf had quickly made plans to set out to Trysvale.

Hopefully the Baron wouldn't mind his sudden presence at his doorstep, Vanderlou saw no reason to send a reply to the Lord Leonardes when he would accept the request and arrive faster than any other courier that traveled through any means, save arcanic teleportation.

As soon as the young gentleman was hailed by the guards he quickly explained his presence, offering them to look at the missive he had received from the baron if only to make sure that the letter was not a fabrication and that he hadn't made the visit on some elaborate prank. "Is the baron available? If he isn't home I could return the following day."

The reply from Orik Stonejaw bore the smudge of a sooty dwarven thumb, and no doubt had been written by Stonejaw freshly emerged from his smelter. It was sincere although perhaps not exactly what the Baron wanted to hear...

 
To Hisself Master Straylor Leonard

Thank you for your recent inquiry regarding the availability of iron from our mining operations. Unfortunately the mines around Trysvale are yet to yeild any commercially viable deposits of iron although we do have an abundance of Tin, Copper, Zinc and Silver and various other minerals of commercial use.

There are incidents of bog iron being discovered in the marshlands and in past era we have had expeditions to the Kriskin mountains across the bay. However we have not heard from our last expedition since before last winter.

I am willing to send a team to the Kriskin mine if you are willing to fund the expedition, however I can not guarantee supply other than by importation of iron from Arium or other suppliers.

Yours Sincerely

Orik Stonejaw, Mines Chief

Master Straylor Leonard

Dear Sir it is a great honor to include you among our financeers. Our expedition to the Kriskin Mountains will begin post haste and I will admit that we hope to achieve greater things by the end of this expedition. As you know the city of Kriskinstat has fell on hard times as of late - we hope to change this - and seek to promote ourselves as the best operation it has ever seen. I trust that with your approval our expedition will be a great success, and that together these two cities will be able to prosper.

This is the start of a great beginning, Sir Straylor. We will await for your arrival at our camp to begin the expedition.

Sincerely,
Orik Stonejaw

Tirion is an upstanding Citizen


OOCI'll let you decide the timestamp so I'll arrive at a time in which you're actually at home. If it suits you, can it be made as early as possible in the month? Cheers. :)


His trek was long and arduous, it felt like he'd been on foot for days, and in truth he had been travelling for several brightenings. He was sick of walking, the same thoughts had been running through his mind for the last five hours, his last meal had been more than an hour ago, and already he was starting to feel hungry.

And to make matters worse, the sky was rapidly darkening as it got closer to night. He assumed he had to be getting close; he'd asked directions at Trysvale, and they'd told him to continue along the Northern road for a while and he'd come to the Leonard estate.

When the sound of hoofbeats from behind him reached his ears, he thought that he'd reached his doom and he was to be attacked and killed by highwaymen. A hand clasped his hunting knife out of the sheath, and he turned to face his would be killers.

As the approached closer, and Tirion could make out their attire, he smiled in relief and sheathed his weapon. He recognised their uniform to be that of the fighting men of Trysvale, no doubt just performing a routine patrol. For a further moment, he bit his lip in consternation, he hadn't committed any crimes in Trysvale, had he? He shook his head, no, he hadn't been that foolish to thieve in the town of his cousin's residence.

The horses were pulled up as they came closer, "Who are you? What's your purpose walking out here so late?" One of the men asked.

"My name is Tirion of the House Leonard, cousin of Baron Straylor Leonard, son of Clarence Leonard. And I, am on my way to visit the Baron. Who may you be?"

The guard gave a little dip of his head, but it was obvious that he didn't quite believe Tirion. After giving his name, he offered to escort Tirion the rest of the way to the estate to which Tirion gladly accepted.

The rest of the journey went quickly on horseback, little was spoken between the man whom Tirion shared a horse and Tirion himself.

Upon arriving at the gates to the estate, the guards stationed there nodded a greeting to those on horseback with whom they were obviously acquainted with. Tirion, they eyed with curious suspicion.

"Says he's the cousin of Baron Leonard," The man jerked a thumb at Tirion who had already dismounted.

The boy thief fished out the ring that hung around his neck and showed it to the guard. "It's an old one, was my father's, Clarence. Only has the old house insignia on it."

The guard nodded, waved his thanks to the two men on horseback who nodded and turned their horses around.

"Follow."

One word, an easy enough command to obey, Tirion thought as he fell into step with the guard. They entered through a servant's door, and if Tirion had known that he was of nobility longer than a scant few months, he'd probably have been offended.

He was led to a room that looked like a library, the guard sent a servant scuttling to find Straylor, and another guard to replace him at the gate, but he himself stayed with Tirion, as if he expected him to start assassinating everyone as soon as he took his eyes off him.

Tirion walked around the room, eyeing off the titles on the binder of the tomes lining the room. There were many interesting books which Tirion felt he could lose himself in. It had been so long since he'd read a book. He almost felt sure that his reading skills had probably diminished enough to be lacking.

"Do you think he'll be long?"

OOC Sorry for taking liberty with the NPC guards. I didn't think you would mind seeming as I haven't stolen anything and don't plan to. :P

The month of Ioannes had come and the brilliance of the summer warmth bathed Trysvale in hues of gold, blue and green. These were the long brigthenings of growth and ripening feilds, of children bathing down at the sea and of lovers walking hand and hand. Time for the farmers to tend to weeds and pests and for politicians to once more engage in diplomacy.

So it was that the Thane Garance Tink put aside the reports provided about the restoration of the Wreckers Coast and turned his attention to matters of Aslangrad, Kaldira and the wider empire.

A Trysvale Trading House had been established in Aslangrad and he had been invited by the Prelate of that city to visit. Now was the time for that to occur and thinking about who should join him in such a delegation, Tinks thoughts went to his friend Straylor and so he sat down and began to compose a letter.

 
Ioannes, Spring Era XVIII Post Fractum
Baron Lord Felix Straylor Leonardes

Dearest Friend,
In my capacity as Lord Thane of Trysvale I will be leading an official delegation to visit the leaders of Aslangrad and Kaldira for the purposes of good trade and friendly alliance. We have managed to secure space for a trading house at Aslangrad and this will provide opportunities for the Trysvale C&W. Kaldira also has a strong trading tradition and provides a link between the Libertas Bay ports and those of Eunesia and the west.

I wish to extend an invitation to yourself to accompany me as part of the official entourage to Aslangrad and Kaldira and hope that you will accept....
 


the letter remained unfinished.

Thane Tink was still a simple man and so he stood up and folding the letter into his pocket, he strapped a short sword and a guards baton to his side and headed out the back door to the stables. The suns were bright in the sky as Garance Tink rode out towards the Baron's Estate...

Ulyris 10, Summer Era XVIII


The letter was brought across from the island of Demios on the ferry, clutched tight in the hands of Digger Bluntsnap, gnomish member of the Demosian Paedia's gadgeteering crew. The famously churlish, pint sized fellow wouldn't have agreed at all to act as a courier, if he hadn't decided that so long as he was on the mainland, he'd call on his fourth cousin on his mother's second cousin's half brother's...step daughter's side.

For the occasion he'd slicked back his black hair beneath the miniature topside down metal strainer that he wore in the style of a helmet, and donned a clean pair of red coveralls. And when he arrived at the Leonard manor and found himself a willing audience, he thrust out the scroll clenched tight in his fist and polite as Klue had reminded him to be, so far as Digger was able, declared "I gots a letter 'ere fer tha Baron Leonard and 'is wife. Make sure ya gives it to'em, right?"

The Month of Imperos
in the Season of Summer, PF XVIII

A box arrived, accompanied by a very brief note from the sender. When opened, the box was revealed to contain a small statue of two crystalline cogs paused in motion. Each cog had been crafted individually then affixed to the base, a simply wavy piece that did not serve to distract or draw attention away from the cogs. Gold had been filled along etchings of the two wheels, curving along the forward faces, two words on the top curve of the left cog and two words on the bottom, with the last two words split one to the top, one to the bottom of the left cog: "May You / Forever Be / Cogged / Together".

Quote:
Elmaryia,

The box holds the statue you requested. I hope it's to your liking.
