A Long time ago in a land not then a kingdom It all began with: 'The Shires' Uprising The Shires of Artemisia, having suffered long under the cruel oppression of the Great Barony of Loch Salann, have determined to crush it in rebellion!!! His Royal Highness Crown Prince Duke Brian Tarragon, has vowed to squelch this insolent uprising. He is mustering the forces of the Barony, which are mighty and great in number!!! All Knights errant and itinerant men-at-arms from beyond the far marches of Artemisia (yes, even Atenveldt itself) are welcome to join in this cataclysmic conflagration!!!'
