The Story
The year is 1500. The war over Calradia has come to a stalemate. The Lion Throne has been unable to capture Vienna, the Swadians have halted their advanced, despite their Emperor's ever growing madness. The Court physicians have lost all hope of recovery for Sigismund, he claims that he is now following the voice of God. Yet somehow the Empire is able to withstand wave after wave of Brigadiers, thanks to it's heavily fortified cities.

The Haelmar Union have been impossing control over the eastern leftovers of the Dual Monarchy, rebuilding ruined towns and establishing colonies with the hope of increasing commerce in the wasteland, with the hopes of weakening Lauria on this front.

The Grand Duchy have embraced the Nirdamese refugees, only to use them as an excuse to wage war on the Tsardom.

Lauria is still engaged on a seemingly never-ending bloody warfare with the Imperial State, both at land at sea, with the occasional attack of the Union at northern Calradia and eastern Bermia.

The Ormelis are growing in numbers and power and with the recent Khergit setbacks, an invasion from them seems unlikely. Yet the Padisha faces difficult choices if he wishes to expand his power: either west and face the incredible might of the Lion Throne, east and face the rising Duchy, or south and face the Khan in an war that could last decades, for a truce in that front is impossible.

Deep into the south the divine Saldian grows impatient. The situation in the north has grown from a simple small-scale engament to gain access to the Obello sea to a clear total war that shakes the very belief on Filaharn's ultimate victory. He has started to doubt Mondo's capabilities and so he recalls the Third Deva from the now secure eastern front and dispaches her to the north. Mondo's hate for her is well known to the Pope, so he sees this as a clear sign that he must be victorious, or his head will roll. But Saldian doesn't stop there. Captured State and Ormeli engineers have promised the Pope the construction of a formidable weapon, a cannon so big and powerful that it would be capable of bombarding Vienna and Nibelheim from the high hills of Lerna.

In early 1500 the construction of the "Aurora Cannon" begins on the province of Gunther-Piedmont. An era draws to its close.

Warband 1.134 recommended. Port coming eventually.
