In these peaceful times…
- A multitude of power changes have shifted throughout Valgaris. From the Dunharrow family’s unseating to be claimed by Volgrin, then to be ushered out and claimed rather quickly by Amun. His untimely death left the city without a leader. The one to step up to the throne, curiously enough, was Nicholas d’Neri. However, he holds the throne as King Regant, paying respects only to the former late King Ethan Dunharrow. It is only now, finally, that the war is over.
- With that being said, it is with great pride that the Valgarians re-open their ever famous and renowned Valgarian Battle League. Details can be found for the grand re-opening event here: Valgarian Battle League Event
- It appears that Valgaris has much going for them even after such dark times. The attractions in Wolfsmouth have been opened. They feature a casino, a winehouse, and a grand bath house that bolsters fantastical entertainment and dining. The Chained Martlet is what this wondrous place of posh entertainment is called, and it is a gathering grounds for those that know true wealth and political intrigue. A trading place of not just goods, but information, makes it lively as well as beautifully dangerous territory.
- With heavy hearts, the Dunharrow family have procured the body of the late King Ethan Dunharrow. The old warrior and king, the shield of Valgaris, has left the realm. There are as many heartsick by this news as there are relieved. The late king was a force to reckon with, just as his brother. Their tales will never be forgotten.
- On another note, the building of Wolfsmouth went entirely uninterrupted by the wildfolk. This was found to be rather curious, given how close the small duchy is to the more wild parts of the land. Valgaris is far more familiar with the wildfolk than the rest of the world is, and they were prepared for altercations with them as they cut down trees and built rather close to their long understood sacred territories. It is left to questioning amongst the people as to why nothing took place. There is a rather pointed silence, and villagers suspect that the wildfolk have moved on or otherwise disappeared. Many of the farmers are relieved by this. Some believe that their return may arrive with their wrath in the form of old wild magics. However, one thing is for certain. Sightings of the wildfolk have dwindled to nothing, and there is a respective quiet since King Ethan’s fall that feels more eerie than it does a relief.
- Quite the opposite is the building of the orc folk. They have made the long haunted pass of Amaresh their new home. Structures have sprouted up in the often tread passage way. It is now a place that most travelers avoid. Traffic by sea has increased astronomically, according to many fishermen. Many feel it best to simply avoid the orcs and their brutish ways altogether, than to risk foot travel through their newfound territory.
- Sightings of the ice kin have increased, though to what ends, the people cannot say. Long have they become myth. Yet, their very real sightings ensure that they, indeed, are not just a bedtime story. In the tales it is often told that they held alliances with the dark elves. With their sightings proving them to be very real, it may also be believed that this is a coming warning of the dark elves’ return as well.
- More terrifying to believe is the return of Vucarik. It is merely rumor at the time being, but rumor is enough to send most locking their doors and warding their walls. The Demon Prince, if truly he has returned, can mean nothing well for the people of Teiravon.
