The Konnish Threat

Post by 063whii » 22 May 2019, 17:12

In the depths of the south
Sit ten thousand brave swords
Not pledged to this king
Or to that petty lord
Who by day and by night
'Gainst the barbaric blight
Do give battle and lives every day.

Once all nations did send
To the empire's end
The steel and the fuel
To combat the Konn strong and cruel.
Now the empire's collapsed
And these brave folk are wraked
With shields all a splintered, and the thinnest of gruel.

And so these brave lads and lasses
Still garrison the passes
Permit Konn no quarter, where no quarter they have.
They strive all unsupplied,
Since the Emperor died
And went to Karach's peace on a grey marble slab.

It is due to these folk,
That we're free of the yolk
Of the Konnish warhost come to take all we own.
But before our flags go white
In thier grim sothern plight
They are in need of nessessities, though they make no moan.

So it falls to us; the humble and brave
To lend to our allies the support that we can.
For one little note, we keep order afloat,
And bar back barbarians by equipping each man!

A penny from you, and thruppence from Stu,
A half crown from elder (a full crown would be grand!);
What price shall we pay, that we live out our days
In the manner and custom of our god-blessed land?

Few of us are rich, though we face common foes
For Demons and South-folk care naught who they kill
If they reached Ithron's shores, with thier great savage jaws
They care not if you're noble, or a peasant from t' mill!

But with paper applause
And our friends from abroad
The konnish bleak horde
Can be staved a while more!
As we rally the cause
Of knights and of horse
Of peasants and lords
Civ'lisations' wards
To the will of the Gods
We fight Dark God's Paws

And shall we send the southfolk back south where they came!

(Donations to the effort to maintain the Loyal and Godly work of the Sothern Garrison against the barbaric hordes of civilasion-ending, Heretical, Konnish barbarians are currently being co-ordinated by the office of Baronet Mistridge. Donations are welcomed whatever thier value, and every thruppence you send is another arrow defending civilisation as we know it!)

Perhaps you should think whether a matter need be made public or if it is a matter for only adventurers. Please remember that ANYONE can read this notice board. Be they friend or foe, it does not matter.

The Khonnish are a group of people from the wastelands to the east of the empire. For the most part they are under the sway of the forces of sharda, and treat upon them in ways not too dissimilar to how our faithful follow the seven.

Despite opinions on his actions, they will most like have consequences for him, but anything further will only damage the reputation of all adventures, any grievances should be sent directly to Amaril.
