Artys nodded, joining Joron and Daeron as they began to walk back to camp. Sensing an awkward atmosphere, Artys decided he should break it. Speaking up he decided the best way to do this would be to explain the backstory of one of the tales of Joron and his adventures.
"Your grace, did Joron ever explain any of the stories that he has of the time went spent adventuring?.
There are quite a few and to be honest most of them are pretty funny to hear"
Artys could see in Daeron's face the tiredness that came from ruling. It was a cruel burden but one borne of necessity. Artys tried to think of anything to help the young king. In his blunt manner, Artys decided on sharing some experience
"It is a massive change is it not your grace?, to find yourself responsible for so many.
Knowing that each decision is weighted and scrutinized for any possible advantage one can find.
I was a 3rd son, not meant to inherit unless by chance that my deeds as a knight saw me gain land.
To lose my brothers and fathers in such quick succession was not easy, taking the seat of Longbow Hall
was even harder. But by surrounding yourself with people you trust makes it easier. Look to your family your grace"
Someone would probably gasp at the familiar tone, but since they were in relative privacy Artys spoke honestly as he always did.
