Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

“When traveling back to Leoch, Dougal and company were stopping for a break in travel and Jamie and Claire offered to fetch water from a private glade and share a little afternoon mrmmph. Two redcoat deserters came upon them while they were mrmmphing, and old 'Arry pulled Jamie off at gunpoint and handed him over to his buddy Arnold, so 'Arry could show Jamie how it was done. While Harry was in situ and getting ready, Claire readied her dagger. Hearing Rupert's instructions in her head, "Here, lass, up under the lowest ribs, close to the backbone. Stab hard, upward into the kidney, and he'll drop like a stone.' , she sought her mark. On the second try, she was successful.”
