Galaharian League

 

*Just in the distance looms the ever present Greenthroat. The forest has earned quite a fearsome reputation in the League. They respect the woods, and consider it home. Neither Narosi nor Arosi, Galahar is a proper Greenthroat nation. Just near the Wet-Throat Ravine, tens of thousands of slaves toil away. Governor Bordatoni of the prosperous port city of Ovest oversees it all. They were staring an actual road system for their stretch of the Greenthroat Land passage. The tree roots were proving quite difficult. But in respect to their Fey allies, none would be cut. Instead the trees and roots would be taken into account and incorporated. This growing road is a blend of humagi and nature.

Elsewhere Ormanno Sforza finds himself quite busy as Lord Regent. The first ships had arrived today, laden with expected goods. As promised, his Step-father had sent the fabled Black Army battle armor. This armor however was stylized with storm clouds on the cauldrons, not suns. A few other slight variances overall changed the aesthetic but not origin. This armor was all well and good, for the growing League army. With war on every side, and such a distinct Mistreaver and internal Fallen One threat, tension is high. A grand army of well armored and supported troops begins it’s foundations. Dozens of Banners of troops begin sailing to Galahar’s city of Fortuna to the east. Several convoys of ships ferry them at different points in the year.

“Bloody hell, there’s nothing left.”

 

The village - what remained of it - lay well below the party, in a small jungle clearing. Even here, on the very edges of the Surukai, the trees and underbrush pushed thick along the sides of every path, and it had taken time for the first soldier to spot the place.

 

Not that there was much to spot. A few blackened ruins and some rice fields were all that was left as evidence of a settlement here. The shapes of burned bodies lay on the ground, and on one house the fire still blazed. This was recent work.

 

“Who could have done this?” The young captain Chakravarmi stepped beside Kunwar. The Maharajas had a strong preference between the two main suspects, but his nemesis was not who the boy had been sent to fight. He kept his mouth shut.

 

“Poor fools,” he said instead, and turned to his daughter who still rode beside him, the disgust on his face fading to stoicism. “They built in hostile territory, not a single armed man nearby to protect them, and too close to the forest to see anyone coming. Who is at fault for their deaths?”

 

Padma frowned, for her father was obviously trying to lecture her on something. “The villagers?” The answer seemed wrong.

 

“Never. Not even a little. Innocent people shouldn’t have to live in fear.” Kunwar shook his head, and stared coldly down at the ex-village. “The fault is with us. We have neglected our duty, and duty is what makes us Rajas.” His eyes narrowed, and he leaned forward as if seeing something.

 

“There’s someone down there!” The captain exclaimed. “Wait...not just one!”

 

And there was. In the village, armed men were moving between burnt houses, throwing bodies aside in search of riches. It was still impossible to tell who they were.

 

“They’re still looting the place, the pigs.” Kunwar sneered. “We’re going down. One column straight down the path, then pincer order. We’ll come down hard and catch them alive. Tell the men. Now!” His eyes never left the target. “You’ll wait here, Padma.”

 

“What? But there’s only a few, I want to see-”

 

“You’re not going to get yourself killed here. I’ve let you come too far with us as it is.” Kunwar’s tone left no room for objection, and he made her dismount and hide in the bushes, off the path. Ten minutes later, he and all the soldiers were gone. Padma was alone with the sounds of birds, insects, and in time, a faint clash of steel.

 

It was hardly what one could call peaceful: the jungle was alive in every sense of the word. But as she waited, she watched the way the sun played on leaves, listened to birds far away. For a dense, disease-ridden forest, it was relaxing.

 

A rustle sounded in the underbrush, just downhill, and the hairs on her arms stood on end. She pulled away from the road, and by instinct pulled the ancient bow from her back. Again she heard the sound. Her father had told her once about the Red Tigers of the Surukai, great man-eating monsters that sprang from the trees and killed their victims instantly. Her hand gripped the bow tighter. She pulled herself up onto a convenient stone, looking downhill warily.

 

Again the bushes rustled along the path, close this time, and she nocked an arrow, ready to defend herself. But it was no tiger which came up the hill. It was a single man, large and muscular, seemingly too big for the horse he rode. His eyes were flat and tired, his brow furrowed in thought.

 

As the man approached, Padma tried to draw further back into the trees, but a twig snapped under her foot and the horse stopped. The man turned, and as he looked into her eyes recognition dawned on his face.

 

“Padma Viswan, the marked one. I haven’t seen you since you were a baby.”

 

Padma pulled back her bowstring, the arrow pointing at the man’s neck.

 

“There’s no need for that, Padma.” The man seemed unconcerned. “I assure you, I will be perfectly civil.” As if to demonstrate, he bowed as deeply as one can on a horse. “Ravi Singh, at your service.”

 

The girl’s heart pumped faster, and her fingers twitched on the bowstring. She should kill him. She knew she should kill him. Her father had told her over and over of this man’s crimes, and just years prior his men had kidnapped her. He was the enemy. But somehow with him standing mere feet away, speaking kindly, she couldn’t do it.

 

“Why did you have me taken?” She replied instead, angrily.

 

“It wasn’t done on my orders. Do I look the sort of man who would kidnap the Mahasattva? The men just get…zealous. You’ll understand that, in time.” He smiled. “I’m not at all the monster they say I am. They say I want to destroy Surya. Really, I just want to break its chains.”

 

“Does that mean doing what you did to that village?” Padma would not loosen her grip on the bow.

 

Ravi ignored the question, a brief scowl coming over his face, then passing. His eyes drifted down the hill, where the sounds of fighting were dying down. “You’re here with Kunwar, I notice. Tiresome man. Tell me, does he still refuse to believe that you are Mahasattva?”

 

Padma nodded before she fully thought about it, taken off guard by the question. This man knew more about her and her father than she realized.

 

“Well, he’s right. You aren’t the Mahasattva. Not yet.” Ravi stretched back lazily in his saddle. “Nor will you ever be, if you keep going on like this. There’s a ritual, you see.”

 

Padma pulled the bowstring tighter. “No one’s said anything about a ritual.”

 

“No, they wouldn’t, would they?” Ravi laughed. “The Sattva are lazy old fools. They have no idea how Arjun reached apotheosis, and even if they did they’d probably muck it up.” He leaned towards her. “I’ve heard what you did to my men. Mihir has given you power. But really, was that anything like what the legends say of the Mahasattva? Anything like what Arjun could do? What about the armbands you stole from me? I don’t suppose they fit, do they.”

 

The girl narrowed her eyes, irritated. “And you know the ritual, I suppose?”

 

“If only I were so lucky. But I’m looking, which is more than others can say.” He sighed. “At some point, Padma, you’ll have to look to the future, and decide what you want it to look like. The Mahasattva can do nothing less. Tell me, do you think Kunwar wants you to succeed? Perhaps as a Rajas, but not as what you truly are. But I do.”

 

Padma was silent.

 

“There is a town in this jungle. It lies where the great Surukai river meets the sea. Men call it Ravibad, but you may call it home, if you wish. Surya is old and decrepit. We are young, and strong. We can help each other.”

 

“You want me to choose to come, now that you can’t force me. What are you planning?”

 

“To set us free, of course.” Padma growled in response, and Ravi edged his horse closer.

 

“I understand, it’s a lot to think about. You do have to make the right decision, after all.” He grinned. “But in the meantime, I have something for you.” Ravi reached a burly arm to his side and drew an old, plain sword. He held it casually, smirked, and then tossed it at Padma’s feet.

 

“This thing’s been more trouble than it’s worth, but maybe it’s because it doesn’t belong to me.” He gestured to the blade, still ignoring the arrow pointed at his face. “Give it a try before we meet again. I think it’ll feel a bit more comfortable in your hands. And remember…” The big man winked cheerfully. “Ravibad!”

 

By the time Padma realized she hadn’t loosed her arrow, Ravi had spurred his horse away, disappearing into the underbrush. Once again, she was left alone with the sounds of the jungle.

 

...And an old, plain sword.

World Events

 

This year, Symon push into the Numerian forest, slowly, inch by inch, clearing every area with painstaking care. Progress is slow, but there seem to be fewer losses than anticipated.


 

The Antigonid Dynasty

 

The Eadni seem assuaged by the re-assurances, and continue to allow supplies through their land uninterrupted.

 

As for the troubles, they seem to subside as the worship is outlawed, and the remnants of the cult either flee to kinder lands, convert, or die. The damage may have been wrought, but no more unnatural storms or magical flares disrupt the land this year.


 

The Kingdom of Five

 

The Meldans seem to have limited success. They report finding two caravels, and sinking them in combat, but find little more. Oftentimes, they state that the enemy escapes into unnatural mists, or slips into coastal waters and darts away through the channels between islands. As they continue their search, the Swine ships also have limited success, as the Red Suns often strike where they are not. (-7.5000G this turn)

 

Emissaries. (Discord)

 

Expedition!


 

The Kingdom of Fyr-Darrick

 

Such a movement of people and creation of settlements exceeds what is possible for the Fey. As such, the vast spread of resources and people creeping forth to occupy new swaths of the forest advances slower than expected. By the end of the year, the two segments of Fey land are still not properly joined, but surely, it cannot be long before they are.

 

As for the king, the visions continue to flash before his eyes on occasions, and a deep urge settles within him. An urge to find their source.


 

The Republic of Danwent

 

The Elder Soul has always been quiet. The priests of Danwent may never even have truly felt his warmth, though his magic roils through them. But however distant he may be, his touch does influence the land. A moment of recognition for the faithful, as crops flourish at an unprecedented rate in 1521. (+2% pop growth for one turn.)


 

The Princedoms of Volarucio

 

M O A R (wine) UNITS.

 

Shortly before the army marches, Trident sens a strongly worded letter, requesting that the Volarucian loan be repaid. But as the army crosses the border, Trident raises its own forces, and missives flit down the river, south, east, west. Who knows where they are going. (discord)


 

The Duchy of Ulyadar

 

The settlers do well enough. They are unharmed, arrive safely, and build more settlements in the name of their chosen Duke!

 

Adept Tuvallinius seems to handle the insanity well enough. He does not go completely crazy, but is clearly struggling with voices, and adopts strange habits, as well as a hunched posture. His eyes are often full of paranoia, though he manages to remain mostly coherent.

 

The Blood Forge and the Blood God have nothing else to say on the matter, unfortunately, as the God remains quiet and the Forge holds not a single allusion to any of these things.


 

The Commonwealth of Ruhn

 

Ruhnites like round numbers, but mods like short replies!

 

The leather becomes easier to manipulate with increased research into its properties. By the end of the year, the leather is finally wearable! It seems to be particularly resistant to flames.


 

The Empire of Bourdeleaux

 

Though many, many laborers have died, the second year of tortuous labor secures a somewhat acceptable road through the Roots. It is doubtful that the pass will ever actually be safe, but for now, it allows, if nothing else, for the troops to pass without constantly fearing about falling down a cliff. However, the winding paths through the valleys are still constantly threatened by falling rocks, and bitter snow and ice and avalanches still spell death for those unlucky enough to be affected by them.

 

In Numeria, the campaign continues, though the Black Army finds its supply lines under constant threat, attacked from all directions, as the men begin to grow hungry, and their supplies wane…

 

The Kingdom of Icefeld

 

The spring does little to warm these frozen lands. Indeed, the ice still lies thick in many spots, and the snow only melts in the southern regions of the march. As for Franz, he only arrives as far as the first tribe, before being promptly rejected. On his paths to other tribes, he now falls under attack from raiders on more than one occasion. Experts in the land around them, they kill dozens of his men, and seriously wound him in the lung with an arrow.

 

The same words spout from the lips of all they meet. “We will not kneel.”

 

As for the army, it is attempting to cross a wind-blasted, frozen land, where food is scarce, and venturing into the forest to forage can be as lethal as sitting in the open arctic fields. With so much put into the supplying of the troops, far less men die of hunger than could be expected, but progress is still slow, and they are not yet at the coast when the deepest, darkest days of winter arrive, and cut off their supply lines with dozens of feet of snow… That, is when the men start dying in earnest.

 

Attrition losses:

150 Icefeld raiders

200 medium infantry

50 Icefeld sappers

100 Medium Archers

The Mangonels have to be abandonned very shortly into the trip, as they prove impossible to transport over these frozen, crag-filled expanses of ice and snow.

100 heavy infantry

100 Crossbowmen

100 Heavy Cavalry,

150 Cavalry unhorsed. (Their horses died or were eaten in the deep winter.)


 

The Fortress Libraries

 

One loremaster defects, along with a relatively rich library. However, the two dozen others still living within Numeria refuse to leave their ancestral homeland, and the history that lies within it. The defector, Amros Nureyn, is a strange chap, with a penchant for droning monologues and moments spent staring blankly into the void.

 

More medicine, but also poison? Nevertheless, there are more than a few plants that secrete toxic substances within the swamp, and the Libraries have an easy enough time cataloguing them. Of note, the Drizzleroot, which has a bitterly sharp taste, but when ingested will slowly turn the blood black, until it coagulates and blocks the heart. It typically turns veins black beneath the skin and is quite deadly.


 

The Galaharian League

 

Ships are indeed built! (Discord)

 

The road system progresses at a decent enough pace, though the scope of the project is immense, stretching over hundreds of miles, near the dangerous Greenthroat. Already, many dozens of slaves have disappeared into the night. As for the roots, incorporating them is all well and good, but without clear directives, they continue to block the entire road, stretching from within the woods, until the edge of the cliff like a wall.

 

Doctors are easy enough to find, though their skills may be dubious. Nevertheless, it is better than none!


 

Surya

 

A rush of settlers throughout the region. Unfortunately, the northernmost group is halted by horrible weather, and is ultimately called off, returning to Sehore in defeat. Shamefur dispray…

 

The rest of the settlements are established without trouble, though the Xian seem none to pleased with this sudden burst of growth from their brown neighbors.

Danwent – 1522

 

 

“He who sows, shall reap.”

 

“Betrayal?!” Thoryus Armon shouted stand in the center of the Great Senate Chamber. “You have betrayed your very own words Senators. You sent me away, with the notion of having no influence in the vote whether we want to stand with Numeria, an ally of ours or not! You were the ones who betrayed their trust, you who betrayed the friendship we built over this past decade!” – “We made the choice for the benefit of the Republic, Senator Armon.” replies Dionius Liber. “War is not good for us. It brings only suffering to the people of Danwent.” – “But breaking treaties and oaths makes us look weak and untrustworthy, Senator Liber.” comes the reply. “And don’t speak for the Republic, you coward hold no intent of protecting truly. You... all of you fail to see the greater picture!” Thoryus fumes. “We have no allies in this world. We have the Empire of Bourdeleaux breathing down our neck. We have the Symon with their dubious intentions to the East. A self-indulging League of Galahar claiming shores near us, plucking our fleets to fight in their battles. This is dangerous to the nation, to the people of Danwent! Where are you protecting it, truly? By hosting games?” – “Senator-“ begins Royolus Artonii for a moment. – “Don’t Senator me, you fool. Grand Republican Party, my arse. All you do is prance about all high and mighty and these other goons that follow you are none the wiser!” Thoryus stares into the faces of the attending men. “You broke a promise. I can not fix that broken promise. But yes, I can see the error here. The source of flaw. And that, I shall fix.” His gaze halts at Aywentos who sits there, brooding, his eyes focused on Thoryus on the central aisle. “Yes, I will fix this. With your support or without it.”

 

 

The news would soon ripple throughout the reaches of Naros. The Republic of Danwent has fallen into a civil war. Thoryus Armon has proclaimed himself King of Danwent and is now marching through the land from hold to hold, city to city, ascertaining his control. Under leadership of Royolus Artonii, the Republicans have organized themselves to prepare for a defense. It’s clear that it would come to battle between the two parties rather sooner than later. Whilst most garrison remain and wide stretches of the Republic are not directly affected as of yet, Senators and mayors of settlements have spoken out their support for one side or the other, a rift beginning to form. The only question is, will this rift turn into a frontline?

 

More Roleplay might be added, once some things are sorted out.

Closing the summary of the war with the Trve Chapel of Knauledge, a cleric inserts the prime copy of the book into a shelf within the Great Temple. Written in golden ink the tale reads:

The One Day War

In the year 1516, citing the weakness of the True Chapel of Knauledge and their lack of rule over the citizens of the Auld lands, His Majesty High Lord Relis Korkus sent an army under the command of his son Prince Hector Korkus to subdue the civilians of the Chapel lands. Thousands of lithborn marched into Chapel lands, their numbers over thirty thousand loyal soldiers. To oppose the invasion, the Chapel conscripted thousands of unwilling men to protect themselves in their fortified library, their numbers dwindling at seven thousand. Wishing for a quick end, and understanding that an unnecessary slaughter could be avoided, His Highness Prince Hector sent out a diplomat to the Chapel leaders requesting a parley. Chapel Monks, caring not for the denizens of Auld, sent a monk to speak on the terms of surrender. In a brief conversation The True Chapel of Knauledge allowed its population and towns to be vassalized by the Kingdom of Bulgar, on the condition that the True Chapel of Knauledge itself, and its fortified library, were allowed to continue as a neutral, independent enclave within their borders with its monks and knowledge remaining under its own control. Prince Hector, believing he had achieved what his father had prescribed for him to do, accepted the surrender allowing the annexation of over a million and a half men and women in a day. Relieved the Auld men who had been pressed into service by the monks were allowed to head back to their homes unhindered. With the agreement came the ancient city of Auld, the capital of an ancient empire and several economic resources the kingdom still uses to date. Ever merciful, High Lord Relis divided the lands of those who would have sought to undermine the conquest and granted the lands to lords who bent the knee. Most notable of the land division was that of House Tralen’s lands to the lords of House Ozark.

 

A letter is sent to the inquistorial head, Head Priestess Taper Greenhand:

Head Priestess Taper Greenhand,

You are hereby charged in searching within the capital lands for heresies not inline of the teachings and religion of Grimsborith. Your task with the inquisition is to be supplied by two thousand five hundred dracma. Should your investigation upturn items of suspicion the crown shall supply more to the cause of interrogation and extermination of those heresies against Grimsborith. Given under crown approval you are allowed to use the tools you see fit, within the limits of discretion and secrecy, and use the chambers of the temples to execute this order. May the changing light of Grimsborith guide us. So signed under my hand.”

Daerin Korkus, Emperor Regent, His Highness Crown Prince of The Holy Empire of Grimsborith, Imperial Commandant of The Imperial Army of Korkus, Lord Steward of The Northern Holds

Available Imperial Denarii (Gold): 57,500

 

With peace settled in the west, the Numerian Army is entirely redirected to the east once more. [Relocating the Numerian Army away from Mineria and towards the Symonian Army]

 

Nine Adepts, and 1 Magi are tasked with scouring the mountain ranges to the north of Lyria. They are following up on the failed expeditions to explore the mountains a decade ago. Utilizing a varied range of spells, they are tasked with flying high above any obstacles, eventually reaching the top of the enormous wall that blocked previous attempts of conventional climbing. [Spending 9 Adepts and 1 Magi to fly out and scout the Point of Interest in the Roots of the World]

 

The Royal Academy of Warfare is established within the Capital - it serves to teach the affairs of stratagems, tactics, and other combat related studies. A subsidiary of this Academy, the Royal Helmden Training Camp, acts as the center of all soldiery training. Thousands of Numerian soldiers are brought here every year, as they are inducted into the army of His Royal Majesty, they are taught the matters of combat doctrines, unit operational levels, standard fitness. The Regimental system remains in place, groups of 500 men sectored into these units This new directive is dubbed the ‘Aemyrian Reforms’ and it seeks to completely overhaul how the Kingdom fights its wars. [Constructing a War Academy in Lyria | 15000/15000]

 

Part of the Aemyrian Army Reforms. [Upgrading (42 units) 21,000 soldiers to Seasoned | All Heavy Infantry, All Medium Infantry, All Light Infantry, All Medium Cavalry | 21000/21000]

 

In order to compensate for the Aemyrian Reforms, in which it promised land to those retiring from service, several new state funded settlements are propped up throughout Numeria. [Constructing 5 Settlements in varied locations throughout Numeria | 20000]

 

Aemyr’s army is replenished with newcomers - half strength Regiments are now filled. They’re expected to arrive within a years time, as the Army crosses over their own Kingdom and meet the Symonian Invaders.

Antigonid Dynasty

1522

----------------------------------=0=----------------------------------

Lord Byron paces towards the large and all too familiar silver doors. Behind him, several of the Centurions from his remaining forces follow. Outside the doors, two Celestial Knights stand at the ready, their elaborate silver armor glimmering in the palace light. As Byron’s party reaches the doors, the knights push them open, revealing the dimly lit throne room. The Lord entered slowly, removing his helmet as he passed the door. From high on his throne, Aegos looked down on the defeated man. Byron eventually reached the foot of the throne, falling to his knee, “Your Gra-“

 

“I don’t want to hear excuses, nor apologies. Where is my Legion, Byron? Where is my standard?” The King interrupted. Aegos rises to his feet, stepping down the stairs and before the Lord. “You lost my standards, nearly half my Legion is dead or devoured in the desert, and the Great City does not fly my flags… Tell me, who advocated for this crusade to the west? Was it not you you championed this cause? Who is to blame for this catastrophe?”

 

“Your Grace, I believed the city could be seized, my men were exhausted and the desert did not provide suitable terrain. I did what I could, there were simply too many. My men, we were overrun..”

 

“You would be wise to save your breath. Count yourself lucky that I did not have your head removed after learning of this debacle and what it cost me. Return to your holdings, and do not fail me again, or repercussions will far outweigh what I have laid upon you. Now leave, your presence dilutes to sanctity of my halls..”

 

At once the lord rose from his position and bowed to the King as he slowly climbed his throne once more. Byron pivots on his feet, walking at a brisk pace towards the exit. His political career was now effectively finished. Whatever influence he might’ve held over the king had evaporated, at least he still had a nice hall to die in..

---------------------=0=---------------------

On The World’s Edge great braziers line the fine sand beaches, though they are filled with water great bouts of fire still leap from their rims. In the midnight sky the full moon and stars hang, letting only pinpricks of Voleus’s lights pierce the earth, and enchanting the ocean waves with their light. A circular structure encased in a ring of pillars, made of rock and stones rise from the beach, the waves brushing along its base. In the center a great brazier burns, casting daunting shadows across the landscape. Far down the coast, the lights from the Royal capital can faintly be seen as they beam through the midnight sky.

 

At the top of the beach a party of figures stands, gazing down on the scene. King Aegos, clad in ceremonial silver armor that reflects the full moonlight leads the group. At his side, holy men and members of the Etheairoi. Silence consumes the group as they all mutter silent prayers and gaze in awe at the sight, until finally the high priest speaks quietly. “Your Grace, the Ancient One slumbers, he has not made his presence known in millennia, he speaks faintly and infrequently.”

 

Aegos remains silent for several moments, pondering the High Priest Aleuas’s words before he speaks with a hint of determination not yet heard in the young King’s voice. “Aleuas, you speak as if I have not read the ancient texts, I am well acquainted with Voleus’s behaviors. This will have to be an.. exception. I have returned his most faithful followers to Naros. I have conquered and brought millions into his fold. Every night, I will conduct this ritual, no matter the conditions. I will make my devotion to Voleus known. The Ancient One will make himself visible to me, he will show me his light. I will awaken him..” Aegos turns to face his retinue, “Let it be heard that I call the banners, legions will be raised, the very ground will shake. I will lead a great crusade in Voleus’s name. I will tear down the unbeliever’s idols, and desecrate their temples. If the Ancient One does not acknowledge my presence now, he will in the years to come…” With that, the king steps forward, marching down across the beach towards the coastal temple. Aegos walks slowly, following the trail of braziers, uttering prayers along the whole path. He slowly ascends the stone stairs, finally reaching the blazing hearth where he falls to his knees, grasping the edges of the large brazier. He bows his head till the flames dance on the edge of his person, licking his features. For hours and deep into the cool Latesian night the young King kneels before the holy site, simply praying..

 

That night, messengers ride across the Dynasty, things are put into motion..

THE PRINCEDOMS OF VOLARUCIO

2zZ2P2K.jpg

The long march north.


 

A thick lair of dust rose into the heavy air, made thick by the heat and breath of fifteen thousand men and beasts on the move. Rain had rendered the roads to a muddy kind of slush, but still these men pushed themselves onwards. It was not the officer’s rebuke or the sergeant’s cruel physicality that spurred their advance, but their own feverish desire to repulse the invader. Step after harsh step they took, sometimes singing their marching tunes, ofttimes not uttering a word but soft grunts. The shining breastplates and helms had become stained by the road, splattered with mud and patterned by their use. Cloth wraps were bound around boots that were falling apart from the harshness of the road. Raincoats were worn over uniforms, and helmets were stowed away on packs, broad brimmed feathered caps replacing them.

 

On and on the road went, the monotony often broken by lines of common-folk, throwing roses, lillies, tulips and more into the road, or pinning it to soldiers’ coats as they went past, a good luck charm to take into battle against the foul Lithborn. The drums beat forwards, the rain pattered down  from the sky and, once again, the drums began to beat their constant marching cacophony again. Somewhere in the line a soft voice began to sing, a call quickly taken up by his compatriots, until their words thundered against the sky itself.

 

Oponiendo picas a caballos enfrentando ballesta a piqueros,

Con el alma unida por el mismo clero que la sangre corra protegiendo el reino,

Aspa de Borgoña flameando al viento Hijos de Santiago grandes son los tercios,
Escuadrón de picas, flancos a cubierto, solo es libre el hombre que no tiene miedo,

Lucha por tu hermano muere por tu reino....”

 


 

-The Tercio de Candeliara and the Tercio de Vivar are raised.

3 units of Volarucian Tercios (Medium Unique Infantry) – 10’500

2 units of Crossbowmen – 6’000

All T3 equipment – 12’000

Activity

 

The Kings retinue now returned to the homeland of Fyr-Darrick gathered themselves at the gates of the Capital Talsyn, within the Kings Glade. The King had gathered one hundred of the veteran Greenthroat Riders and one hundred of the elite Greenthroat Guard. The sun itself was beginning to rise, light managing to breach the dense canopy that rise highly within the forest that surround even the great cities of Fyr-Darrick. The King would appear, walking to mount his War Elk at the head of the column as they party would prepare to leave to traverse depths of the forests that have not yet been reached. Without a rousing speech or any words he would take the reigns of his mount and begin the long march, the column of elite and veteran soldiers passing through the gates. Eventually almost with no noise they would have left and vanished into the depths of the forests as they head north.

 

Around the Darkyrian City of Lamentation the Fey would remain encamped and comfortable in their siege, the humans of Darkyria now were caged in, unable to supply themselves as the Fey grow their forces and prepare new siege techniques after learning of them through the Black Army. A further ten thousand infantry would be on their way to assist in the siege along with the allied forces that remained. Within the Kings timeframe the City would be taken and the war would finally be over. A new Ent would be created outside the City as it was decided  the Royal Army would need as many of them as possible to ensure that the siege could be won in a single assault.

 

Expenditure and actions

 

The Expedition of King Eonir to the Northern Greenthroat as part of his vision from the Elder Soul would be undertaken. 100 Veteran Greenthroat Riders, 100 Elite Greenthroat Guard and one Magi would be accompanying him. They would bring along 10,000 for the expedition.

Kingdom of Hilmedhi

 

The fire burned hot against the open plains outside the jungles of Hilmedhi. Spreading with no end insight, before suddenly stopping at the rune carved rocks that surrounded the pit of unstoppable fire. Asher looked upon the intense burn, as he smiled wide. His eyes filled with the reflection of the fire. As he figured out how to create one of the deadliest weapons on this planet. Knowing no end, the princess obsession with Moradin and Creation were growing. His ability and genius were expanding has he aged. The boy king turned to the other priest and engineers smiling before waving them off as to go home. As he followed suit, packing up newly designed weapon for the Kingdom as he gathered in his wagon.

 

During the ride home, he cracked open a book he had been saving titled ‘The Rise of Moradin: The Blessing of Powerful Kings’ as he read through the book he discovered several things of interest that laid from devout worship of their God. Rumors of Immortal Kings, and unimaginable weapons that held such power only a few could possess them. These came from a building from what he found as ‘The Nexus’ A great building that a monument in its own right, built in a great plain. Surrounded by stone, a building so powerful it took many a magi to harness the powers held within. But the book ended there with a sad tale of a mad and jealous man, who witnessed what it produced but went mad with his attempts to use such a device. Then the book shut closed, Ashur leaned his head back and sighed. Knowing his dreams wouldn’t be reached for several years.
