Spoiler Turn details : upgraded to patch "d" Year 166 Faeryl Viconia demands that we stop trading with the Kuriotates. We refused her demand. She might turn on us at any moment... Traded Knowledge of the Ether to Cardith Lorda for Hunting. Year 167 - Orcish Gambit Jonas Endain has declared war on us without provocation! Doh, I wish I hadn't traded KoE to Cardith so I could maybe bribe him with it to declare war on Jonas. Clan forces consist of 4 Wolf Riders advancing toward Slane. Thankfully they're only promoted with Flanking. Slane is garrisoned by 2 fortified Warrriors. Almost all our Horsemen are in the former Sheaim cities, we're sending 4 fully healed Horsemen to Slane but it'll take 1 turn for them to get there. However we have 1 Horseman at Cahir Abbey that can reach Slane this turn. We use him to attack the Wold Riders and manage to kill 1. Clan territory is on the other side of Lanun lands. We've successfully signed an Open Borders treaty with the Lanun in order to be able to cross over. Acheron the Red Dragon as awakened from his slumber. Year 168 - The Orcs have retreated, we choose not to pursue. Now have 5 Horsmen and 2 Warriors stationed at Slane. Year 169 - Sending some Horsemen into Lanun lands to see what's going on. Year 171 - Runes of Kilmorph Cardith Lorda has founded the Runes of Kilmorph and has converted. The Horsemen don't see any Clan forces in Lanun lands so they're heading back to Slane. Signed an Open Borders agreement with Tebryn Arbandi. Looks like he's eager for reconciliation. Year 173 The Orcs have reappeared and are heading toward Slane with 6 Wolf Riders. This time some of them have combat I. Our Horsemen are stronger than their Wold Riders, especially within our borders, so we attack them. Reduced the Orcish forces to 2 Wold Riders, 1 of which is heavily injured. The Great Prophet Belatu Cadros has appeared at Cahir Abbey. Keeping him to build the Empyrean holy shrine. Year 174 - The remaining Wolf Riders move past Slane and pillage our cottages. We eliminate them easily. Year 175 5 more Wolf Riders charge toward Slane. We eliminate them but we lose 2 of our Horsemen. Year 176 Auric Ulvin and Alexis declare war on Cardith Lorda! Managed to negotiate a peace with Jonas, he must be tired of having his Wolf Riders slaughtered. This will leave us available to help the Kuriotate if need be. I'm sending a Horseman into Kuriotates territory to see how things are going in there. Begun construction of the Great Library in Inishbofin. Even though I have Marble it's a gamble, the production could be used for more military.
