|Ironhorn of Woll Subterrane|
When news of the Declaration of War from Kagronia reaches the Maze of Pa-Mai, Arhan Ironhorn’s heart hangs heavy. Frustrated at the thought of decades of peace which have marked his reign over the Kingdom being brought to an end, Ironhorn meets with the Taurian Elders to seek their thoughts on what steps to take next.
The meeting with his Elders is long and protracted, but it is finally agreed that a non-aggression pact should be sought with Kagronia, but before such an approach is made proof will be needed to convince Gnabadug of the renegade Taurian’s deception. The Elders approve a mobilisation to war footing, but only to protect the kingdom’s borders from incursion. Stormhoof will be summoned to Pa-Mai and should the summons go unanswered a Ransom will be placed on the renegades head. Ironhorn despatches men to locate the renegade
|Bartholomew of Salemere|
Stormhoof is ordered to provide a supporting force which he himself must lead as part of the Vanguard in forcing a crossing over the River Knulst. Should the renegade fail again his death, if not on the battlefield, will be a slow painful slide into the eternal afterlife of the undead.
