The wind from the east has brought ships from our brother Principality in the north and with them comes war to Insuale Draconis. Nordmark’s Emissary Duke Sven, now tries to invade Insulae Draconis. Although the two Princesses are very good friends, our Prince will not allow this to go unanswered. The Prince calls all warriors to make ready and rally to defend Insulae Draconis. This war promises to be fun for all, with war points being given for heavy fighting, A&S competitions and light fighting.
