Falling Trees

Story Emits

Marquis Geraint Blackwood, Marquis of the Storm March, was slain in an attack on Blackwood lands. Details are still scarce, but rumors persist that he was leading a force of two hundred Blackwood soldiers into the Gray Forest on Blackwood lands to respond to some threat, but his force was overwhelmed and slain to a man by forces unknown, with the Marquis' body found crushed near a grove of shattered trees. Word reaches Arx that his will named Eilonwy Thunderoak as his heir, ennobling her, much to the consternation of every single traditionalist member of the peerage. Soldiers across the Compact are horrified that numerous nobles see the latter as a far more worrying detail than the fact a significant military force was wiped out without any survivors being able to give information on the attackers.
