An Ultimatum of Stone
(9th of Sun's Smile)
The Halls of Kal’Drakaan bustled with life like never before with the sudden news of the great King Levian’Tols abdecation of the Obsidian Throne. Pyres were lit throughout the city as the light danced about the crystal covered cavern. The square bustled with dwarves, elves, and humans alike from the multiple territories Urguan presided over. Talk of when the election would start and who would win filled all corners of Kal’Darakaan, but suddenly a young and determined dwarf pushed past the crowds that scattered the square heading straight for the palace.
Entering the diplomatic office of Urguan’s palace striding past the two legionnaire guards who stood guard by the doors, the officials of Urguan stood in a circle around the table discussing the transition of power and how the election would be conducted. The young dwarf handed the paper to the Grand Marshal before saying “Excuse ma interruption, but et seems yer protectorate has dissolved t’eir protectorate treateh.” He’d nod to the leaders before exiting. Looking over the report the Grand Marshal would hand the report to each of the candidates for Kingship.
The Grand Marshal looked around the room after hearing the news speaking to the candidates for Kingship and the other officials present. “Thay ave broken tha pact, wot is our response.” The two candidates for Kingship nodded their heads as Alaric Grimgold spoke first.
“A swift response, we cannot allow t’is treason.”
Ulfric Frostbeard quickly joined in the sentiment.
“Aye, give t’em teh choice ta relent, or gat’eh teh t’rongs. Weh will go teh war in teh West again ef weh must.”
The members in the room nodded quickly, as then the former Grand King, Levian’Tol Grandaxe entered the room with his Lunarite Ordaz resting on his shoulder.
“Retoirement es overeh rated et would seem.”
A Letter would then be sent to the Territories of Vortice and their Leaders.
With the sudden and unwarranted dissolvement of the Vortice Protectorate Treaty, Vortice has betrayed Urguan and its trust. No letter was delivered, no envoy sent, not an ounce of effort to petition or discuss with their ally, and denial of the specific request to wait till a new Grand King was elected, the Unified Domain of Vortice has instead elected to dismiss Urguan with no communication, as if we are their enemies. Perhaps worst of all, they have slighted the honored Levian’Tol of Clan Grandaxe by going directly against his word at his resignation, defiling a moment of humility and respect to renounce their oath to Urguan.
The Unified Domain of Vortice will be given one stone day to discuss the terms of the ultimatum within their congress. If they do not accept or reach a conclusion by the end of the next stone day, the Lords of Urguan will be forced to declare a Grand Grudge against this betrayal. THE TERMS 1 - Vortice will officially recognize once more being a protectorate of the Grand Kingdom of Urguan.
2 - Vortice will provide a public apology to Levian’Tol Grandaxe for the breaking of his word and the dissolution of the pact.
3 - Vortice will provide Urguan a plot of land to build a small fort for the Legion, to protect Vortices citizens and interests.
