Those English lords are faithless vipers. If the story was going to continue into Guilhem's reign, I'd be legitimately worried for his future prospects. Then again, I can hardly wait to see what the repercussions are; hopefully Aevis' clumsy scheming gets nipped in the bud.

Regarding the future fiction spinoff... It kind of has to be Foulques, doesn't it? He's not quite my favourite character in the story (that would probably be Aléarde, Agnes or Hervé), but he is definitely the focal point. Everything that successive generations deal with is rooted in him or the fallout from his actions. It would be interesting to explore some events (like Thoræd's crusade, and Ælfflæd's life in Tunis) in detail, and from other perspectives, and that's not always easily done in a narrative AAR where you want the story to be more tightly focused on the main family/dynasty.
