A Knight of Retford and his retinue receive blessings before a campaign during the first war against Tor Ascara
The billowing horns of war blew throughout the land of Calendale and her fiefdoms. Heavy thuds of metal striking the dirt like a drum. The Kingdom of Calendale's armies were on the march to war. A people who sought only the defence of their realm and had sworn themselves to isolation. A most sour blow was dealt when the Vozhd of Vetroy cowardly killed guests in his own home. A reply had to be made, one with fire and one with sword.
First fire came in the face of the Holy Mother Mytra, the sun. It's powerful gaze struck the walls of Tor Ascara and beckoned an omen of victory for Calendale and her armies. Then the sword came in the face of cold hard steel brought upon elven heads and their traitor human allies. The walls were assaulted and quickly taken, only for the horde of Calendale knight's and retainers who quickly took the streets and engaged in small skirmishes with defenders. When the Elven King valiantly charged upon their ranks, he was quickly cut down which was the same story for his men who soon followed after in his footsteps.
When the carrion birds descended upon the city, it was like a royal feast. Entrails and limbs of elven defenders lay ripe for the picking, and their equipment was soon looted by the victorious Calendale army. Trinkets, gold and exquisite elven weapon lay among the spoils for the victors. In jubilation and triump did the armies of Calendale return with extravagant parties and dancing breaking out in the streets. The returning army opted to take off their helmets and throw their arm up in cheer "Hail to King Richard, Hail to Triumph"
