Glymm Mere Requests

Once again the stores of honey in the Barony of Glymm
Mere are running low. The honey rightfully won by our fair
barony last year was “missing” as our most honorable Baron
Godric attempted to savor a drop from the cask supplied by
Blatha An Oir. It would seem that maybe the taste for honey
runs strong with the residents of Blatha An Oir.

Glymm Mere has been honored with many visits from her
neighbors to the north over the past year. The barony has
welcomed these visitors with warmth and gladness. Oddly
enough, the honey supply in Glymm Mere has dwindled soon
after these visits.


Coincidence? Perhaps. Then again….?

The righteous Baron Godric, fair
Baroness Kara and the Barony of Glymm Mere invite one and all
to Honey War. Help Glymm Mere protect what is left of her
