Introduction

(I want to make this almost like a book. To where we story RP in the first person as accounts of what we did in this time. This I feel will be unique. You can skip through the book part, but please refer to it to be learned in the RP. We will start the RP in the fifth year of the war.)

This book contains many sections, which are subdivided into five sections:

1. Introduction
2. Map of the Known World at the Time and Fiefdoms
3. General Pre-History
4. Causes of the War
5. The War


1. For twenty long years we fought. For twenty long years, our generation had lost many a good souls. For twenty long years, our graves overflowed. But there was a peace before this time. A time when our twelve fiefdoms had a king. Had order. Had peace. This book was ordered to be written to record this history from the remaining survivors of this time, so that the future generations shall remember with great honor, with awe, and fear. They shall learn from our flaws. This book covers mainly the outbreak and beginnings of this war.

3. For many years we lived in the area of Meige. We farmed the land and were as one. As time went on, our people formed their own cultures, their own traditions. Thus was the basis for the thirteen tribes. These tribes lost their unity, and fought for resources and land. In this greed, a tribe was forever lost. Oral tradition tells us that the Jarman tribe, a peaceful tribe living near Iberion, set sail west to escape the wars. According to many legends, they build the fortress on the Goldspeg Isles. Thus there was the twelve. As natural progression in technology continued, many of the bands formed up and build massive cities. These cities are where the modern fiefdoms have been set up. As time progressed, they spread out into kingdoms. Peace was held for more than 400 years until the dynasty of Meige took control of Skarla. Skarla was the largest of the kingdoms with the only known access to iron at that time. It build a great military force and unified the kingdoms into one. With no threats, he turned most of his army home. There they build a new capital. A great capital. It was known as Arleu. For more than 600 years, the Meige dynasty ruled. There was only four rebellions, all put down quickly. This lax approach paved way for a great downfall of the Meige. The people of the north, Skandian, led their first invasion. Caught off guard, our petty force of 3,000 spearman, 2,000 swordsman, 200 calvary, and 500 archers were destroyed on the Plains of Arleu. Arleu was plundered and King Harold the IV was killed. His son, Justinian the Weak, soon took power. Focused with the stress of the Skandian raids, his ten year reign failed to produce a heir which build the road for the War of the Hills.

4. Because King Justinian the Weak failed to produce a heir, his death from a fever left him unprepared to crown a new heir. The fiefdoms called a council to Arleu. They debated who should take control of Meige. After months of failing to name a new heir, Master of the Military, General Bodeux took his military and captured the fiefdoms of Halston, East Skarla, Coventry, Wilkshire, Pica, and Jartop. The remaining fiefdoms of Orkney, Redmond, Kilgetty, West Skarla, Gaul, and Setervik formed into a military alliance to fight General Bodeux under a Skandian king named Jarl Fjell living in the very tip of Setervik. His military was large and dense, and and wished to reclaim the throne and claim the title of King and restore the Meige dynasty.

5. The War of the Hills got its name from the first battle of the war which was fought in the hills of Kilgetty. Trying to gain control of the Fiefdom of Kilgetty and Redmound's large supply of iron and steel smelting materials to equip a large military force. Both forces clashed and fought for control of a single hill named Redington. The battle was so fierce, that 8,000 men were killed in under 2 hours. The war seemed to end as General Boduex lost his right arm and his son. But then, after a single year of rebuilding and training, the war re-ignited. The battles were too numerous to count, and for five years, land was won and lost to where the borders had only changed in favor of Jarl Fjell by 2 miles. Requesting the assistance of Iberion, a large force of 12,000 Iberion soldiers were handed over General Bodeux. Using this new force, Bodeux launched a large assault. Heading for the capital of Jarl Fjell's Kingdom of Meige, Arleu, the Fiefdom of Kilgetty fell, as well as 100 miles of West Skandia. The rest of the historical record is recorded in the accounts of those that lived.
