The buzz in the Kingdom has come to our attention… someone is making off with Glymm Mere Honey! What, you say? Indeed, the rumors have been confirmed! Our honey has gone missing… Who would do such a thing? 

A smuggling route has been discovered to the far North, our distant cousins of Tir Righ seem to have gotten their hands on our precious resource with the help of our dastardly neighbors from Blatha an Oir. We need help to stop these fiends!

We call on our brothers and sisters from our beautiful Kingdom to uphold the honor of Glymm Mere and protect our most precious of resources. WAR!!! A great war shall be waged to put a stop to this horrendous affront, and we shall protect our honey. Join us!
