Viridistan Żąda Wyższego Trybutu (Viridistan Demands Increased Tribute)
Since the Blackheart Crag Reminder, the successive Overlords of the City State have continued to test the strength of the Viridian Emperor with minor forays, seeing that the empire is in decline and believing that one day forces of the City State can again attempt conquest of Viridistan. Generally, these “testings” are resisted bysufficient wizardry and arrows to drive off the forces of the Overlord. Recently, however, some of these “testings” have gone unresisted, with the forces of the Overlord being able to move deep into the Targnol Plains without spotting a single significant armed force. There seems to be no logical pattern to which “testings” are resisted and which are not, leading many to believe the emperor is either mad or is losing power. Tales from Viridistan tell of the emperor strangely building up the wall north of the city that divides it from the Elsenwood to the north. Rumors also say that it has been years since the emperor himself has been seen in public and that when he is seen he wears a strange magical veil. The Overlord grows eager at the thought of plundering ancient Viridistan.
Despite this lack of resistance, the emperor has outrageously increased the tribute due from the City State. Spies between the two cities are thick and talk of war is in the air.
