Scales of War
Call to Arms
A call for adventurers to amass at Overlook.
A CALL TO ALL ABLE-BODIED DEFENDERS OF THE VALE:
Long have Overlook and Bordrin’s Watch stood as a bastion against the hordes of Orc Country to the West. Time and again we stood against the onslaught, watching their armies break against the walls of the Watch, defeated. Even now, however, an army as not seen for many generations marches toward Bordrin’s Watch and we must call to you, our brothers and sisters in arms, to stand with us against the tide.
How can we forget the suffering of our kin during the Age of Chains? How can we set aside those ancient grudges when the risk of slavery is now greater than ever? Fellow warriors, the Orcs are upon us, marching once more to the beat of the giants’ drum. It falls to us to stop them—to hold fast no matter their numbers. If we falter, if we give into fear, it’s not just ourselves and our way of life that will suffer; all people of the Elsir Vale will perish as well. War is upon us. Now is the time for men and women of courage to stand up and defend those who cannot defend themselves.
We, the Council of Elders, call for aid. If you would lend your spell and steel to our cause,
assemble at the Great Hall in the citadel of Overlook two weeks hence. We have precious little time before the enemy is at the gates.
Signed this 18th day of Reaping in the 249th Year of the Fourth Age of this Vale,
Great Elder Morgoff Stonefist
