As things stand now Lady A has a position of being effectively unelected mayor of a small town, while Honor is a count with an estate. This thread is for managing secular events related to these positions.
The first issue I will raise is that in 1127 William II of Apulia dies without child, and Roger II claims all of the lands of Calabria and Apulia as his inheritance. Many in the Norman houses are upset by this, and Pope Honorius II declares a crusade against Roger. At the same time you are aware that the Augustan brotherhood (which at this time is a secret society of learned magicians) supports Roger II. There have also been some grumblings about Honorius II being infernally tainted or influenced coming from the covenant in Rome, though that may just be "sour grapes" about the fact he seized the papacy by force of arms, and certainly nobody has claimed to have confirmed it through any magical or supernatural test.
Both sides of course wish you to support their efforts against the other.
