Regarding Ser Osric Von Kerr was created by Aleister (Aleister)
The Grand Council and I have come to a decision regarding Ser Von Kerr's offer.

A letter is being sent to him accepting his offer to meet and negotiate the terms of release for the prisoners.
Know that we do not take this situation lightly.

Ser Nesterin will be posting soon to put together the team who will be meeting with Ser Osric.
If you wish to join him, please send him a missive so he is aware.

The following are the terms that will be offered to him for the series of crimes he has committed, if he surrenders the prisoners to us:
-Significant leniency to his crimes as a traitor to the kingdom if he publicly renounces his oath to Duke Balliol.
-Amnesty against the crime of Treason for his soldiers if they submit to confessional under the direction of Primus Ephrem of the United Church of Eodra.
-Fair trial for the crimes of kidnapping, theft, and racketeering.

After he has served his sentencing, the kingdom will give strong consideration towards employing him and his unit.

War profiteering through the kidnapping and extortion of prisoners of war is more detestable than the imprisonment of them in the first place. But, in this moment, the circumstances are unique, and anyone seeking the divorce themselves from Duke Balliol should be offered leniency due to the horrid nature of the warlock manipulating the situation.

Greetings all,

As the Lord Admiral said, I will be spearheading the group going to negotiate with Ser Von Kerr. I am admittedly not the best at negotiations. So my role in this endeavor is to give Noble backing to whomever negotiates for us, if they do not already hold a title, and to ensure the safety of all involved.

That said, you do not need to be a great at negotiating. If you think you can help, let me know. Either post here or send me a private missive and tell me what you can offer for this effort. We are looking for negotiators, fighters (in case things go wrong), healers, support of all kinds, shadows for both protection and investigation, etc. If you think you can help and are invested in saving our soldiers, I want to hear from you.

I will be making the final decision on the team within the week. I don't think there will be any issue with me bringing a large group but remember the intent is to save our people not to start a fight. We will defend ourselves if we are attacked or if this is a trap but our primary concern is the safety of our soldiers.

Remember that this is a negotiation, so if we get a large amount of volunteers there may be a few of us listening while others talk. I would love to give everyone their chance to get involved but we have to do this tactically and diplomatically.

Thank you for your time,

I am willing to assist however, I must ask something. What indication has been given that this man is breaking with the Duke? What alternative terms is he to be given? He seems a greedy man who has gold on his mind- what is to be done if he refuses? Or is that to be discussed in private with the group chosen?

Lt.,

What do you mean by your first question? Unfortunately I don't think I understand.
And as for the rest of those questions,
Those are excellent and I will see how we should proceed with this and get back to you on them. Being that I am only spearheading this group I don't think I can make those decisions without the approval of the Council of Lords and Ladies.

Caelvan is a March Warden of Selendrias. Not a Knight of Kaladonia. He also was adopted by the McKraegars, and I'm sure Kin will go along, or have a vested interest in this. I would like to go to protect Kin and see to it personally.

Nesterin,
You better be bringing Kin with you, should he wish to go, which I expect he will. I think it goes without saying that I’ll also be wanting to go with you to retrieve our own.

And one more thing, I fully expect that we’re marching into a trap here. Being that this is one of Balliol’s subordinates going against his will.

Squire Jericho,

It warms my cold metal heart to see that I am not alone in my paranoia! Suggestions on how to deal with this possibility are welcome, particularly when it comes to our own people that we rescue, but Therion has also uncovered some information that leads us to believe this man is fully capable of avoiding the mind control.

So, while the top priority remains getting our people back, this is the kind of man who may be wary enough of Travancian diplomacy to not even have the prisoners at the initial meeting location. It's important to play nice (no matter how distressing this situation is) and see where this goes in the event that a second meeting is required.

Perhaps a contingency is in order? A hidden relief force that is able to react and provide aid quickly if it turns out to be a trap or negotiations go south. I agree with Aiki that we should not send an army to negotiate, but it's always good to have one ready should we find ourselves in a unfavorable position. Regardless of the path taken, you have my assistance.

That is why I have asked people to come forward and let me know how they can help. I am not asking for everyone to go up and talk. I stated I wanted fighters and shadows there as well should things go south. I haven't really gotten any volunteers for that yet.

I agree with Ser Gras,

We are far too deep and ahead in this war to throw caution to the wind. May I suggest Ser Mileof and his Spirits play advance scout. If Corvancia may be of any service, please be forthwith the request and I can convey the message to my chain of command.

Lt. Allyce,

I have gotten word back from the Lord Admiral based on your questions.

"Based on Therion's investigation, his behavior indicates he's trying to get out. The Duke refusing to use his title also corroborates that.

The terms I laid out are what the kingdom is willing to offer him as a way to get out. The money, as I said, I'll be willing to pay him after he stands trial

...

The main things this meeting is meant to ascertain are the validity of his capture of our people, and what kind of negotiations he is willing to work with. I don't expect this meeting to be the first.

Additionally, if the meeting turns south, capture See Osric alive if you can."
