*The elder steward would look tired already, his eyes heavy and his expression dull, but his posture would be straight and excellent as he was listening to Skips question. The Steward would sigh slightly before answering.*
"Right.. Well unless your wife has been specifically invited, then she will not be allowed inside, unless of course she is part of the your company then I'd advise you to speak with the guardsmen to have her taken off the list specifically. - We will get to the mead and the food in a moment, first I'll show you inside, once you've settled into your rooms you may join the feast at your leisure."
*Tiberius stops abruptly speaking as he hears the horn and watches the knights ride into the courtyard. He'd feel rather nervous for a moment as they group got surrounded by the knights before noticing their sigils sighing relieved. As the Knight in Golden Armour nods towards Tiberius he'd immediately bow before him.*
"Welcome Senator, your usual room has been reserved as always."
*He'd say to the knight before returning his attention to the Iron Daggers. He'd nod towards Sir Raven before nodding at him.*
"Yes of course, I'll have one of the maids prepare a bath for you sir."
*The Elder steward would then turn around before guiding the group into the center hall of the manor through the large gates. As they did he would speak."
"Regular procedures would require me to give you a short resumé on the etiquette of the house, but I've been told to make an exception, so I will tell you this. - Most doors in the house are open and the rooms are meant for open use, some doors may be locked are so for a reason. - Regarding the feast. It has been called in your honour at the request of the Lord Protector and therefore the seating arrangements are open and you are free to sit where ever you wish."
*As they enter the center building a range of men dressed in black suits would waiting. Tiberius would wave a hand and the men would step closer.*
"Now, please pair up and join one of our footmen here and they will guide you to your rooms. Once ready please join the feast at the main feast fall down there."
*Tiberius would point down along a hall towards two large open doors leading to the feast hall. Tiberius would then turn towards Sir Raven and Diob.*
"Special room arrangements have been made for the two of you if you would follow me."
*Should the guests choose to follow the footmen they'd be guided to their rooms which would be rather lovely in a Victorian style including heavy dark wooden furniture, wooden wall panels and large sturdy beads. - Tiberius would lead Sir Raven and Diob to two larger rooms both with double beds and on the third floor of the building before entering they might notice two Honour guards standing guard infront of the room at the end of the hall.*
*At the gate the guards would watch the caravan closely watching Niels as he approaches the gates. The Guards Captain would return and walk over to speak with him. He'd look skeptical at the request before answering.*
"The Lord Protector is holding a feast to---"
*The Captain would be cut off in his sentence letting out a grunt of displeasement before waving his hands at the guards causing them to open the gate for the Niels letting him enter.
*After a moment the guards would notice Commander Ingolf approach. The guards would immediately salute him with respect as they opened the gate for him. The guard captain would give the Commander a respectful nod before gesturing him to enter.*
"Commander. Enjoy the party."
*He said shortly before returning his attention to the gate as it closed behind the Commander.*
