Lord Andarias has been murdered!
Civil unrest has been growing considerably of late. After a particularly harsh winter, the people have suffered in poverty and in starvation. The lands of Baron no longer give birth to harvests of grain and wheat. The radical anti-monarchy youths have taken this opportunity to spread discord amongst the common folk!
Baron seeks aid from its allies, but finds little support from anyone. Old wounds lie too deep, it seems. The Five Kingdoms, once united, once at war, now at peace, seek not to support each other, but to simply rot away! Baron will NOT stand for this!
Even now, we have been recruiting mercenaries to suppliment our meager military forces. The enemy does the same, in an attempt to head us off--but they shall not suceed. Civil War is looming in Baron, and we seek out thieves and adventurers to defend us! What horrible irony!
The Dark Knights stand ready. We shall show our foes fear. We shall let them know suffering. Death to all who would dare defy us!
