Last Year's Events: After various acts of sabotage by Stonewaller spies who had infiltrated the kingdom alongside the many refugees who had crossed the border to survive the famine at home, Haven decided to crack down on those refugees, who were perceived as the vanguard of an invasion force. This was the pretext Stonewall was waiting for-in fact, that it provoked-to invade northern Haven, officially to protect its subjects, but in fact to seize new lands as the war in Arkan did not go as well as hoped. Haven's army proved ineffectual in stopping Stonewall's attack, so the kingdom tried to use its political influence to put an end to Stonewall's aggression.
