To the OP, which of the two does my party support? It would likely be Chorda by default, considering Caligos Winterscale isn't on good terms with the party's House. That, and the whole bit where he cut off my character's arm in an honour duel, stabbed him through the heart with his own sword, and then proceeded to cut off both his hands and throw them into a bag...all because my character killed a distant cousin of his in a prior duel gone wrong.
My character is still alive (that's what fate points are for, thank goodness the doc had a stasis unit of some kind hidden in the body bag so he could be revived later), and now one of the other players (a Rogue Trader) who wasn't even involved with the duel wants to bring Winterscale down in every way possible.
We'll see how that goes though
My Calligos Winterscale also likes to cut off the arms of people who challenge him to duels. Or disrespect him. Did he cut off your character's arm and then pointedly cut the hand off as well? Did he give the rest of the arm back as change?
