In the meeting of the Signatory Council in Ciudad Real, Narvaez complains about the smokepowder sanctions placed upon her. Baron Hugo demands that the sanctions be lifted so that Narvaez's economy can return back to normal. He swears that he does not plan on invading any of the other baronies. After much deliberation, the Council votes to keep the sanctions, although the vote passes by just a small majority.

Location: The Savage Baronies. SC
More and more, Afflicted of the Savage Baronies are blamed for events of bad luck, such as droughts, plagues, a family member falling sick, a house being robbed,...

Location: Northern & Western Eusdria. SC.
King Sigismund III, having the forces already in place, has decided to go ahead and march his armies into the Steppes in a plan to claim the northern lands as Eusdrian Territory.

Location: Between Eusdria and Renardy
In response to King Louis IV moving his armies into the frontier, King Sigismund orders some of his forces to march toward Clairvault in an attempt to intimidate the Lupins into leaving Eusdria to fulfilling its destiny. In response, the Lupins begin to move armies to intercept.

YARTHMONT 1, AC 1015: The Sentries Report.....
Location: Between Eusdria and Renardy
The two armies of Renardy and Eusdria have sighted each other but have kept their distances. The sentries and pickets from both sides report spies and saboteurs "testing" the lines. Both armies are now in defensive postures and waiting for the opponents next move. The Tortle "Company of the Shell" has been spotted in the area escorting Tortle refugees from the area to safer places.
The Merchant Houses of the Free City of Dunwick offer to host a delegation of diplomats from Eusdria and Renardy, hopefully getting them to talk rather than fight. The talks are unsuccessful and after a weeks worth of arguments, break down. The Eusdrians are still angry over an incident many years ago involving a group of Beastriders and some Knights of Eusdria that were on a secret scouting mission. It appears that war is imminent.

YARTHMONT 10, AC 1015: The Second Battle of Vorma
Location: Between Eusdria and Renardy
The two armies finally meet at the site of the Battle of Vorma. The Eusdrian army, led by the Order of the Unicorn, spearhead an attempted sneak attack in the pre dawn hours. Unfortunately for the Eusdrians, the Lupins smelled them coming from many miles away and were able to prepare. The battle was extremely one-sided. The Order of the Unicorn alone suffered 85% casualties. The Eusdrian army withdrew from the area and headed back into Eusdria. The Lupins did not pursue the fleeing Eusdrians as the Lupin Field Marshall did not want a needless massacre on his hands. The Lupin general was quickly relieved of command by King Louis IV and replaced. This time was sufficient for the Eusdrian army to get back into their own territory and set up a defence. The Lupin army was then called back to Renardy as the opportunity to crush the Eusdrians was lost. A state of War now exists between the two nations.

YARTHMONT 11, AC 1015: The Flintlock Pistol.

Location: Puerto Morillos, Narvaez. SC
Baron Hugo of Narvaez, to defuse the tension growing between the Afflicted and those not Afflicted declare all Afflicted blasphemers toward Ixion.

KLARMONT 18, AC 1015: Signatory Council Disapproves.
Location: Ciudad Real, Gargoña. SC
In a Signatory Council Meeting, the representatives of Gargoña, Almarrón, and Saragón deplore Baron Hugo of Narvaez's method of channelling his people's anger just to ease the tension toward the nobility. They announce that their nations will accept the Afflicted fleeing Narvaez with open arms. The representative from Cimmaron is so incensed by the cruelty of Narvaez that he hints the Cimmaron Cavalry may ride into Narvaez in defence of the afflicted fleeing the turmoil. Cooler heads prevail however as a Baronial war is the last thing anyone wants.
Also at this meeting, the council discuss the ongoing war between Eusdria and Renardy and propose ways to bring the conflict to a speedy conclusion. Torreón supports Renardy completely as they are a major trading partner and have vowed to find a way to assist them.

FELMONT 13, AC 1015: Las Guajacas Attacked.
Location: Las Guajacas, Torreón. SC
A band of mercenaries from Torreón attempt to attack Las Guajacas and eradicate the Afflicted present. The Afflicted manage to defeat the attackers, but only barely. The rampaging group of mercenaries remain in the area until, suprisingly, a contingent of the Company of the Shell arrive to help protect those who need it. It seems their generous service is no longer for Tortles only.

FYRMONT 2, AC 1015: Siege of Clairvault
Location: City of Clairvault, Renardy
The Army of Eusdria has marched to Clairvault and laid siege the city. They were able to developed a potion that would fool the Lupin sense of smell.

AMBYRMONT 13, AC 1015: Rocha dos Gatos Stands Defiant
Location: Terra Leãoça
The siege is a week old and the fort at Rocha dos Gatos is still holding. Lord Perceval's forces have been suffering as of late from rebel "hit and run" attacks. The Vilaverdan army is also fast approaching the shores of Terra Leãoça so the Rakasta forces are running short on time to secure the area.

The Merchant Houses of Dunwick, seeing the potential for profits and a trade route between Hule and the Savage Coast sponsors this new state and names Entroza, Viceroy of the Baronía de Entroza. A provisional government is set up among construction of the new capital city, Ciudad National, and the Dunwick elite have secured 2 companies of Torreóner SellSwords to provide security.

The ongoing hostilities between Eusdria and Renardy were discussed. As it was seen as nothing more than a "land-grab war", the official policy of the Council was "hands off".
