I have always been one to hunt for men rather than food, and after the recent events I shall remain so.
While I wish no ill will for Lord Tuttle, his choices of late have turned towards politics and from what I have seen, I shall continue to steer clear. First we accepted an invitation to a tournament. While this might have been a good place to shop around his daughter and perhaps gain an advantageous marriage, I do not think that the sum total of the event worked in our favor. From the whispers that I hear, no suitable suitor was found.
Second, he sent his son on a boar hunt with myself as his aid. Neither of us have ever been boar hunting. In order to make up for my inexperience I had a talk with the master of the hunt and, inadvertantly, found that the local children had been dosing the boars. In the end I barely survived protecting him, and the foolish son of his went back in for more. Without any guide or protection he survived the ordeal, found and saved another hier, and got acclaim. I’m not sure if it was skills of the sea that simply worked on land as well, or if he is just that lucky.
And lastly My sister continues to create trouble for us as she hunted down the masked knight and found his identity. Without a stitch of clothes it shouldn’t have been hard to identify him, but does she really need to be cavorting after naked men. At least she had a company of other ladies to maintain her virtue.
I do not think I am like to join in another foolhardy hunt, unless bandits or warriors are the game. I need to keep a keener eye on my sisters activities. And I must try to see more of Lord Tuttle’s son. Normally his time on ship keeps him away, but there may be more than meets the eye.
Footnote: Ser Honorable Knight performed well in the joust. I’m glad to see him do so well in said arena, even if I still scoff at playing war.
