and yeah for me... completed my first uncompleted project. One of many.. but it is a start. The basis and inspiration of this was again a killer piece of work by Aleksei Andrievski. I took what he did, mutatated it to my foul purposes then ran with it.

The poltical history of Glantri 1000-1014. Minus the crater... plus a lot more common sense..

Glantrian Changes AC 1000 - 1014

by Michael Berry

AC 1000 - The Countess of Soth-Kabree, Lady Aliana Nyraviel is declared dead, her son Chandor takes over. He remains loyal to House Erewan so no CV or PV changes.

AC 1003 - The Count of Skullhorn, Urmahid Krinagar, establishes Principality of Bramya. Since it is in the same area as his county, there are no other changes, and he forms the new House of Skullhorn. His CV and PV are 16, while Prince Jherek's PV reduces by 6 to 32 (note that Jherek’s CV was calculated incorrectly in GAZ3 as he is a Count not Marquis , as were Prince Brannart and Vanserie both of who should be Counts, not Viscounts, all by the order of the Radiance. Also note that Jaggar is listed as being a Count, yet should be listed as a Viscount which his CV in Gaz3 reflects)

Updated (and corrected from GAZ3) House CV and PV as of the end of AC 1003:
Crownguard: 17 CV, 34 PV; Linden: 18 PV, 33 PV; Ritterburg: 16 CV, 32 PV; Igorov: 15 CV, 35 PV; Sirrechia: 16 CV, 35 PV; Sylaire: 25 CV, 45 PV; Singhabad; 24 CV, 32 PV; Skullhorn; 16 CV, 16 PV; Ellerovyn: 21 CV, 31 PV; Alhambra: 18 CV, 29 PV; Silverston: 22 CV, 41 PV

AC 1004 - The Archduke of Westheath, Harald of Haaskinz, establishes Principality of Sablestone. Barony of Kern is created for Harald, and he forms the new House of Kern. His CV and PV are 14. The Viceroyalty of Sablestone is abolished. Crownguard’s CV and PV are decreased by 1.
With the enfoeffment of Sablestone the Council of Princes changes its voting means to take into account the increased votes of Bramya and Sablestone to the overall vote totals. Council votes are now handled as follows:
Requests are denied with 60 votes or less
Requests are sent to the Parliament with votes between 61 and 85
Requests are approved with 86 or more votes

Now the Archduchy of Westheath is up for grabs. Lady Margaret Hillsbury decides not to compete.

John Moorcroft is the new Archduke of Westheath. Increase Singhabad’s PV by 1 and decrease Sirrechia’s PV by 9

Now the Duchy of Hightower is up for grabs. Lady Mariana Terlagand declines to compete; Eachainn McDougall and Fernando de Casanegra decide to compete. The Council votes:
For McDougall: Brannart (16), Vanserie (18), Carlotina (21) = 55.
For Casanegra: Morphail (15), Jaggar (16), Innocenti (16), Etienne (25), Carnelia (18), Harald (14) = 101.
*Brannart obviously supports McDougall, as Carnelia supports de Casanegra*
* Morphail votes against Crownguard and thus for de Casanegra *
* Vanserie and Carlotina vote against the elves and thus for McDougall*
* Jaggar and Urmahid do not want to see McDougall move and vote for de Casanegra*
* Innocenti votes for de Casanegra as a part of deal made with Carnelia*
*Etienne and Harald votes for fellow Radiance user *
* Volospin and Jherek both abstain; not caring nor wishing to offend either house, yet not wanting to give the loser enough votes to have this settled via a duel as both are considered good nobles*

The Council approves Don Fernando de Casanegra and rejects Sir Eachainn McDougall. Fernando de Casanegra is the new Duke of Hightower and increases Alhambra’s PV by 1.

Now the Marquisate of Satolas is up for grabs. Countesses Verlien and de Sephora both decline to compete as they are happy in their current fiefs. Count Nyraviel declines as well as he wants to settle into his new status as Count of Soth-Kabree. Counts Alasdair McAllister and Emeth Urbaal both decide to compete. The Council votes:
For McAllister: Brannart (16), Vanserie (18), Jaggar (16), Innocenti (16), Etienne (25), Carnelia (18), Harald (14) = 123.
For Urbaal: Morphail (15), Volospin (22) = 37
*Brannart and Volospin vote for their candidates
*Vanserie, Jaggar, and Innocenti vote against the Alphatian
*Morphail votes against Crownguard
*Etienne and Harald vote for the fellow Radiance user
*Carnelia votes against the Alphatian as part of deal with Innocenti for the vote earlier for de Casanegra
*Jherek and Urmahid both abstain

The Council approves McAllister and rejects Urbaal. Alasdair McAllister becomes the Marquis of Satolas and increases Crownguard’s PV by 1.

Now the County of Glenargyll is up for grabs. Ezechiel Naramis has special interests in Nathrat and declines to compete. Diane de Moriamis is talked out of competing by Malachie du Marais. Neither Rolf von Graustein, nor Giles Greiner has any interest in moving. Griseo Fulvina declines to compete based on the location and financially weak nature of the dominion. Arbana Jerbat declines for not wanting to move away from Alphatian lands. Rowena Krollnar and Antonio di Tarento decide to both compete. The Council votes:
Rowena: Vanserie (18), Etienne (25), Jaggar (16) = 59
Antonio: Innocenti (16), Brannart (16), Morphail (15), Jherek (24), Urmahid (16) = 87
*Vanserie and Innocenti vote for their respective candidates*
*Etienne hates Sirecchia, so he votes for Rowena (he always had good relations with Flaems)*
*Jaggar votes against Sirecchia and Silverston*
* Morphail votes for Antonio because her hopes to use Antonio in the future*
* Jherek and Urmahid would vote against Linden*
*Brannart votes for Antonio as he knows who and what Antonio is and traded his vote for future services* * Carlotina and Volospin abstain as neither are considered worthy*
*Harald abstains as he does not want to support Antonio but neither does he want to alienate Sirecchia*

The Council approves di Tarento and rejects Krollnar. Antonio di Tarento becomes the new Count of Glenargyll and increases Sirrechia’s PV by 1.

Now the Viscounty of Castelbianco is up for grabs. Obviously, all the undead barons of Boldavia and Klantyre will not be competing. Malachie du Marais declines to compete. That leaves us with Franz of Adlerturm, Isabella of Egorn, and Pieter of Oxhill. All of who choose to compete. The Council votes:
Franz: Jaggar (16), Carlotina (21), Etienne (25) = 62
Isabella: Carnelia (18), Jherek (24), Urmahid (16), Volospin (22), Innocenti (16) = 96
Pieter: Vanserie (18) = 18
* Jaggar, Carnelia, and Vanserie vote for their candidates
* Jherek, Volospin, and Urmahid vote against both Ritterburg and Linden
* Carlotina votes against Linden and Alhambra.
* Innocenti votes against Ritterburg and vote for Alhambra, to oppose Sylaire
* Etienne votes against Carnelia and against Pieter who he hates even though on very good terms with the Flaem in general*
* Brannart, Morphail, and Harald also abstain since they have no interest in this case.*

The Council approves Isabella and refers Franz to Parliament. The following Parliament vote:
For: 34 (Crownguard), 35 (Igorov), 32 (Ritterburg), 45 (Sylaire), 32 (Ellerovyn) = 178 votes or 52% of the Parliament vote falling short of the 2/3rds needed for approval thus rejecting his request.
Isabella de Montebello is the winner and the new Viscount of Castelbianco and Alhambra has its PV increased by 1.

The Barony of Egorn is now available to a new noble. The Thyatin Niccolo Galateo (PC4) wins the Awards Festival in a 3 way duel at the Great School of Magic. He declares for House Sirrechia and Sirrechia has its PV increase by 4.

Updated House CV and PV as of AC 1004:
Crownguard: 16 CV, 34 PV; Linden: 18 PV, 33 PV; Ritterburg: 16 CV, 32 PV; Igorov: 15 CV, 35 PV; Sirrechia: 16 CV, 31 PV; Kern: 14 CV, 14 PV; Sylaire: 25 CV, 45 PV; Singhabad; 24 CV, 33 PV; Skullhorn; 16 CV, 16 PV; Ellerovyn: 21 CV, 32 PV; Alhambra: 18 CV, 31 PV; Silverston: 22 CV, 41 PV

AC 1005 - After the declaration of war, Carlotina Erewan loses the title of Chamberlain (reducing her CV and PV by 4 and Jaggar von Drachenfels gets the title, increasing his CV and PV by 4.
Malachie du Marais marries Diane de Moriamis. Malachie presents to the Council of Princes a petition with the necessary number of signatures for an Act of Enfoeffment. The votes:
For: Vanserie (18), Jaggar (20), Harald (14), Etienne (25), Volospin (22) = 99
*Vanserie likes the notion of a 2nd Averoignian Principality as the Flaem always considered the Averoignian respectable unlike the other settlers*
*Jaggar and Volospin support Malachie as it is hoped his lycanthrope subjects will provide a military edge in the war against Alphatia.*
* Etienne naturally supports Malachie as a 2nd Averoignian Principality*
*Harald votes in support of Etienne and the Averoignians with whom he has had very good relations
*the rest of the Princes vote against either because of rivalries with House Sylaire or simply not trusting a known (to the Council) werewolf to be a Prince of Glantri.*

The motion of the Act of Enfoeffment barely passes the Council with 99 votes. The Barony of Morlay and Viscounty of Malinbois officially cease to exist. Malachie chooses his fief to remain at the old location as Morlay, and for ‘unknown’ reason not at Malinbois. Malachie is now Prince of Morlay-Malinbois, Baron of Morlay and established House Morlay. His CV and PV are 14. The PV of House Sylaire is reduced by 9.

With the addition of the 13th Principality, the council adjusts its voting structure again.
Requests are denied with 65 votes or less
Requests are sent to the Parliament with votes between 66 and 95
Requests are approved with 96 or more votes
Updated House CV and PV as of AC 1005:
Crownguard: 16 CV, 34 PV; Linden: 18 PV, 33 PV; Ritterburg: 20 CV, 36 PV; Igorov: 15 CV, 35 PV; Sirrechia: 16 CV, 31 PV; Kern: 14 CV, 14 PV; Sylaire: 25 CV, 36 PV; Morlay: 14 CV, 14 PV; Singhabad; 24 CV, 33 PV; Skullhorn; 16 CV, 16 PV; Ellerovyn: 17 CV, 28 PV; Alhambra: 18 CV, 31 PV; Silverston: 22 CV, 41 PV

AC 1006 - The Council of Princes approves the creation of 8 new dominions. The Princes felt the new dominions would provide much needed revenue with the massive increased in the Grand Army due to the war with Alphatia and would provide more balance to a Glantrian nobility structure that now had nearly as many Principalities as Baronies and Viscounties combined. The new dominions created were:
*Viscounty of d’Ylourgne-Fortress of d’Ylourgne decommissioned. Prince Innocenti loses Viceroyalty and has his PV reduced by 1 and the new Viscounty is opened to an Awards Festival. All the undead barons of Boldavia and Klantyre do not compete. The remaining Barons: Franz Lowenroth, Baron of Adlerturm; Niccolo Galateo, Baron of Egorn; and Pieter Vandehaar, Baron of Oxhill choose to compete. The Council vote:
For Lowenroth - Brannart (16), Jaggar (20), Jherek (24), Urmahid (16), Carlotina (17), Carnelia (18) = 111.
For Galateo - Innocenti (15), Etienne (25), Malachie (14) = 54.
For Vandehaar - Vanserie (18), Morphail (15), Harald (14) = 47.
* Jaggar, Innocenti, and Vanserie vote for their candidates*
* Brannart, Jherek, Urmahid, Carlotina, and Carnelia vote for Franz to open up a rich Barony to an Award Festival*
* Etienne and Malachie vote for Niccolo knowing he is a lycanthrope and perhaps willing to shift his political allegiance*
*Morphail votes for Pieter who he recognizes as a shady character and might cause problems for the Averoignians the new Viscounty is located right next to*
* Harald votes for Pieter just in hope of getting him out of the Sablestone region*
*Volospin abstains as none of the candidates is felt to be worthy of his vote*

The Council approves Franz Lowenroth and rejects Galateo and Vandehaar. Franz Lowenroth becomes the new Viscount of d’Ylourgne. Sirrechia has its CV and PV reduced by 1 for losing the Viceroyalty of d’Ylourgne. Ritterburg has its PV increased by 1.

The vacant Barony of Adlerturm is now open for a new noble. A Klanytrian wizard, Julian Steurt wins the Awards Festival over an Ethengarian wizard. Crownguard has its PV increased by 4.

The 7 remaining new dominions created by the Council of Princes are all Baronies and are competed for by scores of eligible Glantrian wizards.
One new Barony, located between Egorn and Oxhill, is awarded to the Kaelic wizard James Dothan by the Council. The new Baron names it Edleview. However several months after establishing the Barony, the Baron and his family were found dead. The Barony was put back up for an Awards Festival and was won by the Belcadizian wizard Juan Manuel Cagigal y Monserrat. House Alhambra has its PV increased by 4.

Another new Barony, located between Egorn and d’Ylourgne, is won in an Awards Festival by the Ethengarian wizard Subatai Khaldun. He names it Nandin. He aligns with Singhabad. House Singhabad has its PV increased by 4.

Another new Barony located north of Morlay-Malinbois, and is awarded to the famous adventurer and dragon-mage Michel Leconte. He names it Brulefer and aligns with Sylaire. House Sylaire has its PV increased by 4.

A new Barony north of Brulefer is awarded to the famous Alphatian wizard Stacia. She names it Leadyl and aligns with Silverston. House Silverston has its PV increased by 4.

A new Barony north of Leadyl is won by the extremely popular Erewan Elf war-hero, Ansel Widefarer ‘The Torch of Aasla’. He names his Barony Goriidel and aligns with House Ellerovyn. House Ellerovyn has its PV increased by 4.

The last western new Barony, north of Goriidel close to the Wendarian border, is won by a Kaelic Wizard, Fiona MacInnes. She names the Barony Lantruen and aligns with House Crownguard. House Crownguard has its PV increased by 4.

A new Barony, between Uigmuir and Bergen, is won by the famous leader of the leading H-K unit of the war, Kristina Wilhamine. She names the Barony Dovehold and aligns with House Linden. House Linden has its PV increased by 4.

Updated House CV and PV as of AC 1006:
Crownguard: 16 CV, 42 PV; Linden: 18 PV, 37 PV; Ritterburg: 20 CV, 37 PV; Igorov: 15 CV, 35 PV; Sirrechia: 15 CV, 30 PV; Kern: 14 CV, 14 PV; Sylaire: 25 CV, 40 PV; Morlay: 14 CV, 14 PV; Singhabad; 24 CV, 37 PV; Skullhorn; 16 CV, 16 PV; Ellerovyn: 17 CV, 32 PV; Alhambra: 18 CV, 35 PV; Silverston: 22 CV, 45 PV

AC 1007 - Viscount Giles Grenier dies with no heirs. Now the vacant Viscounty of Flasseflammes is up for grabs. All the undead barons of Boldavia and Klantyre do not compete. Most of the newly elected nobles of AC 1006 decline to compete as some in Alphatia as Glantri launching a insurgency campaign of its own in Alphatia earlier in the year, some are still settling into their new dominions and nearly all exhausted their finances campaigning for the new Baronies just last year. Three Barons do enter the Awards Festival: Niccolo Galateo, Baron of Egorn; Juan Manuel Cagigal y Monserrat, Baron of Edleview; and Pieter Vandehaar, Baron of Oxhill. The Council vote:
Galateo - Innocenti (15), Etienne (25), Jherek (24), Malachie (14), Carlotina (17), Volospin (22) = 117
Monserrat - Carnelia (18), Jaggar (20), Jherek (24), Urmahid (16), Volospin (22) = 80
Vandehaar - Brannart (16), Vanserie (18), Morphail (15), Harald (14) = 63
* Carnelia, Innocenti, and Vanserie vote for their candidates*
*Brannart and Morphail vote for Pieter who they recognize as a shady character and might cause problems for the Averoignians as the Viscounty is located right next to their lands*
* Harald votes for Pieter just in hope of getting him out of the Sablestone region.*
*Jaggar votes for Juan Manuel as he is ex Grand Army officer and respected military wizard*
*Jherek votes for both Niccolo and Juan Manuel as he genuinely impressed with both men. Urmahid is friends with Juan Manuel and only votes for him*
*Carlotina votes for Niccolo and voting against the Belcadizian and Flaem*
* Etienne and Malachie vote for Niccolo knowing he is a lycanthrope and perhaps willing to shift his political allegiance. Malachie after doing mental calculations of the likely Council votes figures both Niccolo and Juan Manuel will be short which means likely both will face off in a duel that Juan Manuel would like win. Behind the scenes Malachie and Etienne work a 3 party deal with Prince Volospin. For his support, which he would not likely normally give a Thyatin; Niccolo would then leave House Sirrechia and join House Marais. Asked why he might agree to do so, Malachie informs him he has long been an agent of the Averoignian lycanthropes. Volospin agrees to vote for Niccolo IF he would agree to leave House Sirrechia. Niccolo does agree to the bargain*
*Volospin upholds his end of the bargain and votes against the Flaem, but votes for Juan Manuel AND also for Niccolo.

The Council approves Niccolo, refers Juan Manuel to Parliament, and rejects Pieter. The following Parliament vote on Juan Manuel Cagigal y Monserrat:
For: 42 (Crownguard), 35 (Igorov), 14 (Haaskinz), 37 (Singhabad), 16 (Krinagar), 35 (Alhambra), 45 (Silverston) = 224/414 votes or 54% of the Parliament vote falling short of the 2/3rds needed for approval thus rejecting his request.
Niccolo Galateo is the winner and the new Viscount of Fausseflammes.

The vacant Barony of Egorn is now open for a new noble. A Sindhian wizard, Sita Peshwir wins the Awards Festival over an Averoignian wizard. She joins House Haaskinz.
Soon afterwards in Parliament he announces he is leaving House Sirrechia and joining House Morlay, infuriating and embarrassing Prince Innocenti. Numerous unsuccessful attempts are made on the new Viscount’s life.
As a result of all this, Sylaire has its PV drop by 5, and Morlay has its PV increase by 5, Kern has its PV increase by 4, and Sirrechia has its PV decrease by 4.

Viscountess of Redstone Arbana Jerbat who had been missing since been since early 1007 is officially declared dead by Council of Princes with no heir the Viscounty of Redstone is put up for an Awards Festival. None of the undead barons of Boldavia and Klantyre choose to compete. Several Barons decline to compete for a dominion in such a unstable region of Glantri. However a number of Barons choose to compete: Ansel Widefarer of Goriidel, Stacia of Leadyl, and Pieter Vandehaar of Oxhill. The Council votes:
Widefarer - Jaggar (20), Jherek (24), Urmahid (18), Etienne (25), Malachie (14), Carlotina (17) = 118.
Stacia - Carnelia (18), Volospin (22) = 40.
Vandehaar - Juliana (16), Innocenti (15), Brannart (16), Morphail (15), Harald (14) = 76.
* Carlotina, Volospin, and Juliana vote for their candidates*
*Brannart, Innocenti, and Morphail vote for Pieter who they recognize as a shady character they might have use in future plots*
* Harald votes for Pieter just in hope of getting him out of the Sablestone region*
*Jaggar, Jherek, Urmahid, Etienne, and Malachie vote for Ansel out of respect to his services to Glantri and status as a national hero as well as a capable wizard in an area likely to see action as the Alphatians advance upon Glantri.
*Carnelia votes for Stacia as a vote against the Erewan and the Flaem*
The Council approves Ansel, refers Pieter to Parliament, and rejects Stacia. A disgusted Pieter withdraws before the Parliament votes on him.
Ansel Widefarer wins Viscounty of Redstone. House Erewan has its PV increase by 1. Silverston has its PV decrease by 5 to 44

Updated House CV and PV as of AC 1008:
Crownguard: 16 CV, 38 PV; Linden: 16 PV, 35 PV; Ritterburg: 20 CV, 37 PV; Igorov: 15 CV, 35 PV; Sirrechia: 15 CV, 26 PV; Haaskinz: 14 CV, 18 PV; Sylaire: 25 CV, 35 PV; Morlay: 14 CV, 19 PV; Singhabad; 24 CV, 33 PV; Skullhorn; 18 CV, 22 PV; Ellerovyn: 17 CV, 37 PV; Alhambra: 18 CV, 35 PV; Silverston: 22 CV, 44 PV

AC 1009 - Climax of the Great War:
The Count of Soth Kabree Chandor Nyraviel was killed during the final battles pushing Thar out of Glantri and back into the Broken Lands in early 1009. Since he had no heir, the County was opened to an Awards Festival. . None of the undead barons of Boldavia and Klantyre choose to compete. Several of the Viscounts decline to compete for a dominion in such a unstable war ravaged region of Glantri. However a number of Viscounts choose to compete: Isabella de Montebello of Castelbianco, Ansel Widefarer of Redstone, and Franz Lowenroth of d’Ylourgne. The Council votes:
For Widefarer - Jherek (24), Urmahid (18), Etienne (25), Malachie (14), Carlotina (17) = 98.
For de Montebello - Carnelia (18), Volospin (22) Innocenti (15), Brannart (16), Morphail (15), Harald (14) = 100.
For Lowenroth - Jaggar (20), Juliana (16) = 36.
* Carlotina, Carnelia, and Jaggar vote for their candidates
*Juliana follows her advisor’s suggestion and votes for Lowenroth, but in reality was to vote against the elves* *Innocenti, Brannart and Morphail are swayed by Princess Carnelia for promises of future support*
* Harald votes for de Montebello out of admiration for her brains and her body*
*Volospin votes for de Montebello in hopes of having a nearby historically Thyatin dominion in which he can move a follower of his*
*Jherek, Urmahid, Etienne, and Malachie vote for Ansel out of respect to his services to Glantri and status as a national hero as well as a capable wizard in an area likely to see action due to its proximity to the Broken Lands and King Thar*

The Council approves both Widefarer and de Montebello and rejects Lowenroth. Thus the issue was settled at Dueling Court where de Montello won by default when Widefarer became violently ill the night before and announced he was unable to compete.
Isabella de Montebello wins the open County of Soth Kabree. House Alhambra has its PV increase by 1 and Ellerovyn has its PV decrease by 6.

With de Montebello’s elevation to Soth Kabree the Viscounty of Castelbianco came open for an Awards Festival. The competition was fierce as three candidates emerged as favorites and were voted upon by the Council of Princes.
Baroness Kristiana Wilhamine of Dovehold - Juliana (16), Jaggar (20), Etienne (25), Malachie (14), Brannart (16), Morphail (15) = 106
Baron Borodin of Nandin - Volospin (22), Carnelia (18) = 40
Baroness Sita Peshwir of Egorn - Harold (14), Jherek (24), Urmahid (18), Carlotina (17), Innocenti (15) = 84

The Council passed Wilhamine, rejected Borodin and sent Peshwir to Parliament. Knowing she would have to face such a powerful and skilled combat mage in Wilhamine Peshwir expended little gold or time politicking in Parliament before it decided on her petition. After a week of deliberation and time for Peshwir to make her case to the other nobles the Parliament voted:
For: Silverston 44, Alhambra 36, Ellerovyn 31, Haaskinz 18, Singhabad 33, Krinager 22, Sirrechia 26 and to the surprise of everyone in Parliament.. Crownguard 37, and Igorov 35 = 282/408 votes or 69% of the Parliament vote just reaching of the 2/3rds needed for approval thus accepting her request. Peshwir was now to face Wilhamine in the dueling court. Bravely facing her opponent in the dueling Court a week later rather than lose face by withdrawing, Peshwir was quickly and violently overcome by the more experienced Wilhamine. Peshwir did survive but not without severe injuries and she spent nearly a month recovering from her injuries.

Thus Wilhamine won the Viscounty of Castelbianco. With her elevation to Castelbianco the Barony of Dovehold came open. A local wizard from the Barony, Roeland Koortweg, won the Award Festival thus increasing Linden’s PV by 5 to 39.


As the year wore on and the war turned against Thyatis making the likelihood of an Alphatian invasion likely the Council of Princes created a number of new dominions to help aid in its defense.
Two new Visconties were created. One in the very rich Isoile River Valley east of New Averoigne and a second in a much less desirable location on the east slopes of the Colossus Mounts facing the Ethengar Khanates.
There was much discussion in the Capital among the nobles as to who might and might compete for the Viscounties. It was never officially confirmed by the Council but often surmised at the Capital that the Isoile Valley dominion was created for one of the great heroes of the war, the Averognian wizard Baron Michel Leconte of Brulefer who famously captured the Alphatian man-o-war flagship, the Eriadna, at the Battle of Retebius while leading a expeditionary force of Glantrian wizards and other adventurers in the defense of mainland Thyatis. Once the Baron announced he was competing for the new Viscounty any interest of all the other Barons in competing dried up. Not only was Leconte thought of as national hero, with ties to many of the Princes, he was known to be a very capable and powerful wizard and dragon mage. Remembering what just happened to Baroness Peshwir going to dueling court against battle hardened wizards it was no surprise Leconte ran unopposed. The new Viscont named the new dominion Amboise and increased Sylaire’s PV by 1.

With Leconte’s elevation to Amboise, his old dominion of Brulefer came open and in a competitive and fierce Award Festival another Glantrian hero and member of the Glantrian Expeditionary Force in Thyatis, Josef Stransky, won his old commanders (and best friend) dominion. Add 4 to Ritterburg’s PV.

The second new Viscounty in spite of his frontier and potential front line against Ethengar location did draw a number of Barons to compete for the title. After a month of hard campaigning and politicking 3 nobles took their cases to the Council of Princes and were voted upon:
Baron Pieter Vandehaar of Oxhill - Juliana (16), Harald (14), Etienne (25), Malachie (14), Brannart (16), Morphail (15) = 100
Baroness Jella-Lan of Goriidel - Urmahid (18), Innocenti (15), Carnelia (18) = 51
Baron Borodin of Nandin - Volospin (22), Jaggar (20), Jherek (24), Carnelia (17) = 83
The Council approves Vandehaar, rejects Jella-Lan, and passes Borodin on to Parliament for a decision. After a week of heavy politicking and lining pockets with gold the Parliament votes:
For: Ritterburg 41, Singhabad 33, Skullhorn 22, Ellerovyn 31, Alhambra 36, and Silverston 44 for a total of 207 votes out of 419 thus getting 49% and falling short of the 2/3rds needed for approval thus Pieter Vandehaar becomes the new Viscount and names his dominion Steerwijk. Linden’s PV is increased by 1.

Vanderhaar’s old dominion of Oxhill is subject to a bruising and quite violent (2 potential nobles are murdered) and after the votes were cast by the Council of Princes the Fen Edward Newbrute emerges the winner and the new Baron of Oxhill. He allies with House Silverston increasing their PV by 4.

Along with the two new Viscounties, four new Baronies are created at the frontier edges of Glantri and draw a great deal of spirited contest. With one exception.
In perhaps the most crucial of the new dominions created the Council acknowledges the danger the Sind and its overlord, The Master, still posed to Glantri. The Council creates a new Barony on the border with the Sind to the west of Sablestone. In a rare departure from standard procedure the Council makes clear it has one person in mind for the position of Baron. The potential noble aspirants take heed and the Thyatin General Tenebras Favosi who won fame and accolades for his skill parrying Thar’s invasion in the Silver Sierra Free Province is chosen with no dissention or opposition to the be the Baron of the new Barony. He names it Fallsburg and allies himself with Sirrechia. Sirrechia’s PV is increased by 4.

In the far northeast of Glantri, east of Boldavia a new Barony is created to extend control of that land and provide closer links (and eyes) on the Heldannic Knights. The famed scholar and much admired Mikail Zirchevski, husband of Sinaria Verlien's daughter and father of one of the greatest child talents seen at the Great School in perhaps decades, wins the Awards Festival and names his new Barony Lipetsk. Igorov’s PV is increased by 4.

The south on the border with Darokin the Council of Princes creates a new Barony with the purpose of defending the direct southern approaches into Glantri from Darokin (the Alpahatians) as well as improving direct communication and trade with Darokin and bypassing normal routes through the hostile and mobilized Broken Lands. A large number of potential nobles compete for this barony and in the end the Elf Mirodor who was a Alfheim refugee who moved to Glantri and made a name for himself serving in the Grand Army during the last half of the war. He names his new Barony Ritternour. Ellerovyn’s PV is increased by 4.

The final new dominion is created in the newly annexed lands between Glantri and the Great Plateau to the west of d’Ylourgne. The campaign for this new barony was interesting in that a late arrival, an Averogian adventurer and powerful wizard, Adik de Chevas, who became a noble in Norward serving King Ericall before renouncing it out of protest to Alphatias invasion. His arrival turns the campaign on its head and he came from nowhere to become the favorite to win. Once the votes were counted by the Council he handily won the Awards Festival for the new Barony and named the new Barony Sherlin after his daughter. Sylaire’s PV is increased by 4.

In the last weeks of 1009 came the assault on Glantri by the ‘Thousand Wizards’ as retaliation for the destruction of the Alpahatian capital city of Sundsvall. The attack is only halted when magic gets drained from the world for a week and the Alphatian continent sinks. Before that happened though the Alphatians did have enough time to wreck havoc over Glantri and duel with many Glantrian wizards. Many fell on both sides, including some Glantrian nobles.

The Baroness of Leadyl, Stacia, died in defense of Glantri City after bravely taking on 3 Alphatian mages. She killed two but the third bested her.

The Baron of Edleview, Juan Manuel Cagigal y Monserrat died in defense of Fort Monteleone where a large contingent of Alphatian mages attacked. He was crushed by an Air Elemental he did notice approach as we was engaged in a large range duel with another Alphatian.

The Duchess of Fenswick, Margaret Hillsbury died when attacked by a Black Dragon apparently summoned by the Alphatians.

Perhaps the most troubling loss for Glantri could be the loss of the Prince of Blackhill himself, Prince Volospin. He was last seen dueling a Alphatian archmage over Glantri City (rumored to be Master Terrari himself). After the battle no sign of him could be found. He is feared dead but the Council decided to put off the succession, with the permission of Volospin’s sole heir, of Blackhill hoping of course that the Prince might reappear.
While the succession of Blackhill was kept open by the Council, it moved rapidly to fill the vacancies created by the Alphatian attack.

For the vacant Duchy of Fenswick both of the Crownguard Marquis decide to compete, Narda Sheen true to form declines to compete. After an abbreviated campaigning session the Council votes on the matter of filling the open Duchy (noted was the absence of Prince Etienne):
Marquis Alasdair McAllister of Satolas - Brannart (16), Jaggar (20), Morphail (15), Innocenti (15), Harald (14), Jherek (24), Urmahid (18), Carnelia (18) = 130
Marquis Eachainn McDougall of Dunvegan - Juliana (16), Malachie (14), Carlotina (17) = 47
*Prince Brannart publically claimed he was voting for both but secretly votes only for the Radiance user, McAllister, not voting for Eachainn to reduce risk of having this end up in dueling court*
*Volospin and Etienne abstain for not attending the Council session*
*Harald votes for the fellow Radiance user*
*Jaggar, Morphail, Innocenti, Jherek, Urmahid, and Carnelia vote against McDoughall as he was deemed too valuable militarily to move from his present dominion*
*Juliana, Malachie, and Carlotina vote for the more charming and less creepy McDougall*

The Council approves McAllister and rejects McDoughall so Alasdair McAllister becomes the new Duke of Fenswick. Crownguard’s PV is increased by 1 and Blackhill’s is decreased by 8.

The now open Marquisate of Satolas is now open for an Awards Festival. Two Counts decide to compete and after a very short campaign period the Council votes:
The Count of Glenargyl Antonio di Tarento - Brannart (16), Juliana (16), Morhail (15), Innocenti (15) = 62
The Count of Wylon Emeth Urbaal - Jaggar (20), Harald (14), Malachie (14), Jherek (24), Urmahid (18), Carlotina (17), Carnelia (18) = 125
*Prince Innocenti votes for his own candidate*
*Volospin and Etienne abstain for not attending the Council session*
*Juliana votes against the Alphatian and Morphail and Brannart vote for their tool and resident evil soul*
*the rest of the Princes vote mostly against the extremely disliked Count of Glenargyl as much as they voted for Urbaal *
The Council approves Urbaal and rejects di Tarento and Emeth Urbaal becomes the new Marquis of Satolas increasing Silverston’s PV by 1.

The now open County of Wylon is now open for an Awards Festival. Many of the Viscounts decide to compete, including three Flaemish, and after a very short campaign period in which two of the Flaem drop out after learning the third had the support of the Princess the Council voted:
Viscountess Kristiana Wilhamine of Castelbianco - Juliana (16), Morphail (15) = 31
Viscount Franz Lowenroth of d’Ylourgne - Brannart (16), Innocenti (15), Jaggar (20), Harald (14), Jherek (24), Urmahid (18), Carlotina (17), and Carnelia (18) = 156
*Prince Jaggar and Princess Juliana vote for their own candidates*
*Volospin and Etienne abstain for not attending the Council session*
*Morphail votes for Juliana in part for being Flaemish and also being a notoriously young, beautiful, chaotic yet powerful wizard *
*Innocenti, Jherek, Urhamid, Carnelia, and Carlotina vote primarily against the Flaemish wizard*
*Brannart and Innocenti (along with most of the other Princes in part) vote more based on potentially opening a very rich Viscounty of d’Ylourgne to their followers in the next Awards Festival*
The Council approves Lowenroth and rejects Wilhamine and Franz Lowenroth becomes the new the new Count of Wylon increasing Ritterburg’s PV by 1.

The now open Viscounty of d’Ylourgne is now open for an Awards Festival. Many of the Barons decide to compete for the rich and safe dominion and after a week long campaign period the Council voted on the two candidates that still remained to face the Council:
Baron Julian Steurt of Adleturm - Brannart (16), Jaggar (20), Innocenti (15) = 51
Baroness Sita Peshwir of Egorn - Harald (14), Juliana (16), Morphail (15), Malachie (14), Jherek (24), Urmahid (18), Carlotina (17), Carnelia (18) = 136
*Prince Brannart and Prince Harald vote for their own candidates*
*Volospin and Etienne abstain for not attending the Council session*
*Jaggar and Innocenti, not caring who wins, vote for Steurt in hope he wins and opens Adleturm for an Awards Festival*
*Juliana, Carnelia, and Carlotina out of respect for Peshwir and her bravery facing Wilhamine knowing she wasn’t likely to win thus die*
*Morphail, Jherek, and Urmahid vote against House Crownguard and for the weaker House Haaskinz*
*Malachie votes for Peshwir having met and discussed regional issues with her and appreciating her intellect and demeanor, as well as having sympathy for Sindhi immigrants to Glantri*
The Council approves Peshwir and rejects Steurt and Sita Peshwir becomes the new the new Viscount of d’Ylourgne increasing Kern’s PV by 1.

The now open Barony of Egorn is now open for an Awards Festival and after a week long campaign period the Council selected the Darokinean Wizard Gerrid Rientha as the new Barony of Egorn. Rientha allies with his best friend, the Prince of Sablestone and increases Kern’s PV by 4.

Last but not least the two vacant Baronies are filled by the Council of Princes. The Council selected the famed (and infamous) werewolf hunter Circe deVille to replace the heirless Miss Stacia as Baroness of Leadyl. Sylaires PV is increased by 4 and Blackhill’s is decreased by 4. The heirless Baron Juan Manuel Cagigal y Monserrat of Edleview is replaced by the notorious Thyatian socialite Vincienzo di Randazzi. Sirrechia’s PV is increased by 4 and Alhambra’s is decreased by 4 thus ending a wild and turbulent 1009 for Glantri.

AC 1010 - CHA CHA CHA CHANGES…
After a shocking turn of events an unknown heir to Prince Volospin emerges in the form of a illegitimate daughter born out of wedlock with the recently deceased Duchess Hillsbury. After the Council declared Volospin missing and presumed dead and his son Lathan Aendyr renounced his claim on Blackhill his half sister, Delores Hilsbury is confirmed by the Council of Princes to be the next Princess of Blackhill.
The charge of Chancellor of Princes is taken from the new inexperienced Princess and awarded to Urmahid Krinager and the charge of Treasurer Urmahid had held is given to Delores. Increase Urmahid’s CV and PV by 4 and decrease Delores’ by 4.
In addition to Prince Volospin the Council also deals with the disappearance of Prince Etienne who had not been seen since the Alphatian attack. While the Prince was known to take long, often baffling, disapperences the Council of Princes decides to recognize his sister-in-law Isidore as Princess of NewAveroigne.
The charge of Grand Master of Great School is taken from the decidedly unschoraly Isidore and is awarded to Harald of Haaskinz. Decrease Isidore’s CV and PV by 10 and increase Harald’s by 10.
Later after Isidore also disappeared the Council accepts the petition of Etienne’s brother Henri to become the Prince of New Averoigne.

Finally in an amazing development the Council of Princes votes to accept a Act of Enfiefment from the Kobold Kol XIV thus annexing the Broken Lands and creating the 14th Principality. Thus Kol XIV becomes the Count of Udhgar and Prince New Kolland.

With the addition of the 14th Principality, the council adjusts its voting structure again.
