Border Skirmishes (2019-09-27 - 2019-09-29) Cydllan Downs

Held by the Cantons of Cyddlain Downs and Ritterwald, in the Barony of Nottinghill Coill Event Stewards- Etain of Sutherland and Diederich von Basel While most of the kingdom is preparing for war, there seems to be some unrest along the southeastern border of Atlantia. Chickens gone missing, strange tracks across the fields, scared sheep....Could this just be mischief between cantons, or the precursor to an invasion, or something else? Previous Barons have discussed the need for a wall along the southern border, but we hope that things can be resolved before it gets that far. The Lord of Eastwind Castle has allowed his lands to be used as neutral ground for solving the conflict, so we invite you all to come and help us resolve the disputes and make the border strong again.
