Horseradish War IV

The men and women of the Shire of Baerenau are desperately seeking for help! A tremendous and unbelievable tragedy we are facing. On a hot summer night with a clear star sprinkled sky an enemy so sly and impudent came over us and stole the holiest relict we have, the shrine of the horseradish. These dirty thieves poisoned our guards and keepers of the shrine and took away what never should leave the Shire. Our spirit, the source our lives and the root of Baerenau. All we had left was a trace of Knockebrot crumps to the Northwest! By all we know this could be a false trace, nevertheless we are now on a quest. Leaving our beloved lands with our best trackers we go to war. On the way we seek for friends who will join us to meet on the second day of September on a field close to a little village at Lubeck-Kucknitz. There we will collect our powers to then strike these faceless and cowardly rogues!
