Welcome to the Village of Auvernhat
Unfortunately the crops aren't growing very well this year and the duke of auvernhat has drawn the plans for a new ditch system that will bring water from the nearby river to the farmers of the village. the ditch is scheduled for completion in less then 5 planting seasons. However this is not possible without the cooperation of the village of gason which lies on the opposite side of the river.
The duke of gascon knows that if the ditch is built it will deplete the sacred canals which are vital to the religious and economic prosperity of his village. The duke of gascon has refused cooperation with auvernhat and with permission of the high priests has rallied troops.
the duke of auvernhat sees that war is inevitable and begins a religious propaganda campaign in order to justify his war.
THE NEXT FIVE PICTURES CONTAIN GRAPHIC DEPICTIONS OF THE BATTLE THAT ENSUED AFTER THE DISAGREEMENTS COULD NOT BE RESOLVED.
...the duke of gason can be seen in the picture above at the bottom right with blue robe, he is killed minutes later...
