THE LOOTING OF BALIAN
24th OF Tobias’ Bounty, 1880
“We’re taking back our gear!” - Guillame de Rochefort
Upon the dawn of the evening, a small raiding party consisting of the Princess Victoria Augusta and the Baronet of Rochefort, alongside elven mercenaries, made their way into the barren lands of Atrus within Balian. The city’s structures were full of holes and poor architecture, making perfect entry for the Orenian forces.
The city lay empty, of course, the land being known as uninhabitable for many decades due to its lack of culture and poor stewarding of leadership. Nonetheless, the scouting group made its way into the Balian army’s headquarters, another poorly guarded area. As the mercenaries kept guard (for ultimately no one to come), the duo found several unlocked chests in the Balianian armory! Woe for the poor straggling Duchy, for no one would save them. The group quickly made haste, stealing the entire contents - a whopping 300 sets of weaponry and 15 sets of armor.
At the sight of the Orenian scouting group, the Lord Legate Constantin Malenos ran away in fear, fleeing to an underground shack (rumored to be his mistress’s). No one sallied to his support, unfortunately due to the crippling state of Balian.
LO, FOR THE BALIAN FORCES HAVE BEEN STRIPPED CLEAN, AND GIVEN BACK TO ITS RIGHTFUL OWNER !
