Daralis Suffroch oversaw the stock show, awarding first place to a white sow without blemish, as well as picking favorite horses, jams, etc. Nobles then bid to buy winning animals, and a silent auction awarded the food.
The steward of House Suffroch announced to the gathered lords that a letter had come addressed to the Lords of the Seven Kingdoms, in which Jaime Lannister demanded trial by combat, noting that Eddard Stark always says that the man who passes sentence should swing the sword. The reactions are confused and varied, though Tyrion looked pleased.
The first major competition of arms took place: the small unit combat. In the first round, The Lannisters of Lannisport defeated house Crakehall, House Marbrand defeated House Lydden, and House Suffroch – under Myra’s leadership – defeated House Serrett. In the second round, Ser Addam Marbrand – son and heir of Lord Damon Marbrand – made a good effort, but ultimately Myra and house Suffroch were the victors. The losers were sore in their loss, though many others congratulated Myra, including Tyrion Lannister, the Crakehalls, and Lord Wallack Suffroch.
There was much feasting and flirting following the battle. Myra and Kelvin were beset upon by a crowd of Lannisters of Lannisport, a mass of blonde sisters and cousins. Kelvin offered to give a tour of the reliquary, which Mellinna and Sophie took him up on. When the other Lannister women had left, Kiren flirted with Myra, who eventually picked up on this fact and awkwardly – yet fairly successfully – flirted back. Kelvin was finally able to ditch young Sophie, and was trying to think of where to take Mellinna for some privacy when a cry went out that a man was dead.
It turned out that it was Ser Addam Marbrand, found hung near the Marbrand pavilion. Lady Daralis rode bareback out there to beat the crowds and found the body in full armor, and noticed a stool tossed far to the side. There were already many Marbrand servants around, and they had cut down the house’s heir in a futile attempt to revive him.
