Last fall, the forces of Aethelmearc met the Atlantian hordes led by the Barony of Highland Foorde on the field of battle in a grand quest to retrieve the Sylver Apple of Sylvan Glen, the talisman that bestows bounty and prosperity on our shire. Led by our mighty King Christopher, fierce Queen Morgen, and the brave Defenders of the Glen, we emerged from the fray victorious.
Having settled this property dispute, the populace of Sylvan Glen had hoped for peaceful respite from the long years of uncertainty and war. For an all too brief moment, it looked as if tat peace might be realized, but that peace was placed in grave jeopardy as reports of bandits attacking Highland Foorde’s Western Road began to trickle in. As these attacks have become more brazen and frequent, the hope for peace between Sylvan Glen and Highland Foorde has become much dimmer.
