The Tayrippen have been at war with the Ith for the past 24 months over a set of mines on the southern border of the Ith Empire. The Ith were supplied by the dwarves and reinforced by the Elves. All the defense was for naught, as the Tayrippens Phalanxes have taken and secured the mines, and the surrounding area.
The 3rd son of the King of Tayrippen lead the assault. After a long and bloody conquest is on his way to return to Rojuan (Capital City) as the victor.
The great TayRippen Prophet, Jixon Racie has made public a prophecy he has written 6 years ago. It has been three weeks since it has gone public, and Jixons head now adorns the highest pike it could be stuck on.
Few have heard the prophecy, and repeating it can cause open execution. Many rumors and myths abound as to what the Prophet said that caused his doom. All known documents with the prophecy on it have been destroyed.
In one weeks time is the Festival of War. Despite the name, this is a happy time in the kingdom of Tayrippen. They all gather at the Altar of Kord in the Center of Rojuan. Here the High Priest of Kord calls upon the God for blessing. Every few years an Avatar of Kord will grace the Kingdom and bestow his blessings upon them. The hopes are high that due to the successful campaign in the north, this will occur!
