War approaches. In the past weeks a call to arms has quietly passed throughout Tantalus and the southern plains, summoning all who would to help defend the city and restore its rightful ruler. An army of Black Hand orcs in league with the Bane Sons has been seen on the march north and are believed to intend to join with the Usurper’s forces in the city. Word from our allies in the Northlands tells of the barbarous forces of Drumar Flamehair and the dragon warriors of the Traitor Khosrav sailing south even now.
Many have gathered south of Tantalus at the ancestral home of the Baroness de Bourening, a large fortified holding now surrounded by forces loyal to Duke Arthedain Hollin.
