Spring 998 - Campaign Progress

Like snarling jackals the nations of Treyine turn on once-mighty Stygustan. The evidence of its greatness is present all over that nation, but now all Stygustan's neighbours care about is the nectarine embargo. Their eyes envy the wide orchards of nectarine trees along Stygustan's coastal provinces and they seek to end the embargo by owning their own orchards. Thus, Mangu, Mirish and Treyine send their armies to seize the valuable fruit farms and perhaps to loot the tombs of the ancient Stygustani pharaohs.

Meanwhile, Tereken seizes the opportunity to invade Altengard, citing the presence in their army of a Capalan prince with the ancestral right to hold the invaded province but not the might on his own to take it.

A trader in antiques found an old bronze horn on his market stall. He knew not its provenance and never remembered buying it, but a passing centurion espied it and bought it for just a few coppers. He polished it and presented it to his legate in a bid to curry favour. The legate recognised it for what it was and hastened to the emperor seeking imperial patronage in return. Thus the War Horn of Naz Goth was returned to the fray. It is said that the emperor fills it with soapy water and blows bubbles through it.

  1. Altengard will hold.
    Would be interesting to see if Stygustan still exist by end of the year.

    1. I fear you may be right about Stygustan. It will all depend upon the National Morale rolls.
