Unto our Cousins of Highland Foorde Barun Siegfried and Baronessa

We understand what it is to be attacked unprovoked. As the Barony of
Stierbach is currently under threat by one of our own Cousins from the
South. Our Cousin has made outlandish claims. He has even admitted to
causing the unnatural weather that has caused hardship within the lands
of our two Baronies and beyond into the lands of our good neighbors of

Barony of Dun Carraig, Barony of Lochmere, Shire of Roxbury Mill, Shire

Disturbing and troubling news has been brought before the Baronial Seat.
two diplomatic emissaries, much delayed by recent storms, have brought
shocking news of a proposed invasion in the hopes of conquering the
