  • He also pleaded with the Barons Cleftlands for support in defending his lands (and bacon) from the depredations of Duke Edmund of Lozengia in the Battle of the Five Armies at Harvest Days on 9/12. Our Barons could not battle Lozengia, as Constanza owes a personal debt to Lozengia for setting her on the martial path. Nonetheless, from their great love of Brendoken, they have charged their Standard Bearer, Matheus, to lead the Cleftlands combatants in supporting Brendoken at this great battle.
