The ground beneath us trembles ever increasingly with the rhythmic marching of armored feet approaching our sylvan borders. The impending threat of War looms on AEthelmearc's horizon. It is time once again to declare a Pax Interruptus, and summon the noble forces of scarlet to gather in preparation.
Thescorre's valiant Baron Eric along with steadfast Baroness Katja, invite all to journey to these industrious lands. Their Excellencies joyously welcome, on behalf of Khan Khalek, all who would train with resolute vigor, striving to hone to a fine edge, each warrior's skills of battle for the coming fight in defense of this glorious Kingdom.
