Btw Utopia, i made that post earlier but i'm still not sure if you are still technically using Addunheim or of its just there now.
The Veleni have returned from raiding the mountains of Til-Gur and they once again prey on the weak nation of Ferneus. Using evasive tactics, they manage to pillage and plunder villages and quickly leave before any real force can catch up to them.
One of many
While the war remains ever-present in the head of every citizen of the Kingdom every now and then it is forgotten. One of these moments is happening in an Inn somewhere in the broken Kingdom. A soldier entered, immediately yelled through the Inn at the Owner "Some Roast beef, a 'commoners drink' with alcohol and a room for the Night" and sat down at a table. A weird-looking man turns to look at the man and asked "commoners drink? That's what its called in Gostand right?". The soldier couldn't tell what was weird about the man but something about him seemed off. "Yes, I grew up there but now I live as a farmer near Parot. Going to buy some cattle from the pay as a soldier and who knows maybe I'll have enough left over to get my wife a gift", the soldier responded with a smile. "Ah, farming an honourable job! Parot is near the part of Terdan populated by Theodans, which are known for their obsession with farming. Tell me, friend, what do you know what how the Theodans got here?". The soldier had to think for a moment until responding. "They came with the Adunni but got trapped in Toastian lands when our ancestors gave them cattle and land in return for them abandoning their heathen ways". The weird man smiled at the soldier. "Correct but what did we ever get from that deal?" The soldier struggled to find an answer and stuttered in confusion until the weird man spoke again "Now tell me, what is it called when someone takes something without giving something in return?". Neither of the two had to speak an answer because they both knew it. Theft. After a moment of silence, the weird man spoke again "Of course its usury to expect to receive more than you give and a grave sin but after centuries of them stealing from us and not been considering that that's wrong and even making a profit from the things they stole from us wouldn't it be justice if we take back what is ours and what our rightful part of the fortune they made?". With shock in his eyes, the soldier whispered, quietly but still understandable for everyone who listened, "Absolutely but what if they don't have what belongs to us anymore". The weird man smiled again and suddenly smashed his fist on the table, turned around to the crowd the soldier just noticed had formed around them during their conversation and exclaimed: "Then we go south to their [INBREEDING RELATED INSULT] cousins in the south and take it from them!". The crowd cheered. All but one man who yelled: "Pah, and then? We bring just more misery onto the world and out people and in the end, we have gained nothing from following the teachings of some disgruntled drunken [INSULT]". The soldier jumped up and screamed: "Are you just going to accept that? This traitor would probably be happy if our Kingdom just gets conquered by some foreigners-" He stopped turned towards a window and pointed at a tree outside "-tie him up there and make him think about what he just said!". Then the crowd did just that. A few moments later the owner of the Inn approached the table of the soldier and handed him his meal and told him the location of his room. The weird man would then hand the soldier a piece of paper with a symbol drawn onto it, said "You could prove to be very useful for our cause when your home in Pirot and the war is over, look for a House with this symbol drawn on it and show this paper to its owner. He will know what to do." with a smile on his face and then the weird man left. The soldier ate his meal and then went to bed and once again thought about the encounter with the weird man and then fell asleep, having forgotten the war he would have to return to once he woke up.
The Storm fades...
The great gamble House Derovid took when launching its all-out attack on House Foretan succeded! With House Foretan losing all of its major cities it no longer can continue to fight in the war. The anti-Derovid assault on Estrag seemed to go good at first but before the city could fall the troops on Derovid returned and could with the help of the defenders of Estrag, easily destroy the attack troops. Kert Jenes, the Head of House Gorodas died in the battle and his Son Kert Jenes II decided not to press his claim to the toastian throne. Just yesterday the candidate of House Terdan, Merjy Erjich, was found dead lying on his back on the ground of his bedroom. A mysterious symbol has been carved in his back. His daughter, who is his successor is too young to take the throne of toast so his House is also out of the conflict.
The coronation of Jaon II as King of Toast has been delayed since he has received a black eye he refuses to comment on. After being asked his sister commented "Only the gods know" with a smile. Jaon has sent letters to Til-Gur (Balticonia) and Imperial Korintheya in which he thanks them "for their continued support of me and my House", invites their monarch to his coronation and hopes for "continued friendship and mutual support of the People of our Realms".
and with this, the storm above toast fades until it will inevitably return upon the next succession crisis

Yeah so RP really is kinda dead, which is why I wann suggest we rest the RP every month or so, to make it fresh again and again. We can do historical settings, fantasy settings, medieval times, futuristic times, anything goes. If the RP remains alive and we are all enjoying the RP, we can always vote to keep it for another month.
