The countdown to the climactic Battle of Badon Hill has begun. The new generation is stepping up, shouldering aside the old knights. The Golden Age of Arthur is nigh. The only question is how will Sir Herringdale weather these changes as the sun sets on his portion of the tale?
To answer this question, I envisioned this year as forming the first of a three-part arc. Yes, some day canon fanboys of this chronicle (I’m sure there’s one or two of them already out there, partially-formed) may refer to this as the “Saxon arc.” Or maybe I’m just calling it that right now myself. As the name suggests, this year marks the return of the Saxon menace…along with the return of some ghosts of Herringdale’s past.
But first, we check in with the heir apparent of our campaign, Lady Meleri. I’m going to try and work in a little time with her in upcoming sessions until she becomes the main character, if for nothing else than to help with the inevitable passing of the torch; Des recently told me Herringdale has taken pride of place as her favorite character of all time. No pressure, Meleri!
