After many months of brutal fighting, Roawia is finally enjoying a state of peace, albeit a shaky one. Young Chartres has been sent north to reside in Garheim for a time, and the faction leaders are still thrashing out the final details of the peace treaty, arguing over the retribution of damages and a possible demilitarized zone between Lenfald and Loreos.

The Leaders of LCC. by Mark of Falworth, on Flickr

The wife of the recently deceased king, Queen Aethid, has taken temporary control of the throne until a new ruler can be found, but her limited influence is doing little to mitigate peace talk disputes. All across Roawia, the people fear that without a strong central ruler, the factions will soon fall into conflict again. They yearn for someone with the political skills and leadership required to reestablish the state of closeness which existed prior to the disastrous campaign on the magic isles and the resulting bloodshed that followed.

Rumors have begun to spread across the land; stories of a kind and benevolent ruler who can grant the peoples’ wishes. The figure being whispered about ironically hails from the magic isles, an exiled woman by the name of Galainir. It is said that she claims to be a descendent of the long-dead King Alphundus, who efficiently ruled Roawia many years ago!

Taking advantage of recent conflicts, the distractions enabling her return to the mainland, Galainir has spent the last few months gaining popularity by taking to the streets to raise support. Droves of simple peasants and laborers now flock around her, smiling and cheering, as she makes extravagant vows to mend the broken relationships of Loreos and Lenfald. The mysterious woman has gained a myriad of supporters among the soldiers as well, as her promises of peace appeal to their war-weary hearts. With the end of the Lenfel-Loresii conflict, the only subject now heard spoken in the taverns recently has been speculation on when she will be crowned Queen!

The factional rulers, however, are less inclined to believe her claims of legitimacy. Despite their ongoing differences, they have agreed that she must prove herself to be of royal descent, or be cast back into exile. At the peak of her popularity, Galainir sends a messenger to them proposing that they meet with her to discuss the issue. Reluctantly, they agree to grant her an audience in the coastal Lenfel town of Durrough...

To the FOs, I request that if you need a local leader for Durrough, please use a character I came up with as the senior leader of that major city, Duke Cartney. Since this Queen-wannabe is coming to Durrough, Sir Caelan's neck of the woods, it would lock in with what has been established there. Duke Cartney was introduced here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/80813941@N08/9108566537/in/photostream
Thanks, and this looks like a fantastic direction to go, with lots of potential for confilct and clever MOC-building! :D

Off with her head!

Let's hope brave Jarl, bumbling Jarius ( :wink: ), and High Lord Triphian will have the brains to send her packing.

Sheesh! You guys sure are quick to judge! Would you rather see Roawia plunged into another civil war?! :twitch:

Perhaps a strong leader who isn't caught up in the quagmire of factional politics is just what we need right now.
