For many years Hartwood Lands have passed time without war.
These peaceful lands have become full life. There are prize swans
that have become fatter and more envied then any in the land. In
this time a great Lord by the name of Dayma Sith passed into
Valhalla. He passed into Valhalla with no heir to his wealth. 
This wealth is in the form of a castle in Hartwood. Knowing that
there was no one to leave this legacy to he decreed that the
strongest and most noble Warlord in Hartwood would gain control of
his castle. Lord Sith wanted to have the the best and most fearsome
fighter to hold his legacy. So to honor this nobleman we shall do
as he bid. We are calling for all the warlords to gather their
armies and combat for the honor of the land.  

During Participation: Every warlord will get 100 gold coins to
start to field his Army. To help out with set up if a warlord
registers a week or more before the event he will get 50 gold coins
to add to his purse. Every person that comes to Fowl War will get
10 gold coins to give to any Fighter or Warlord they wish. War
Lords may acquire more gold coins by getting there soldiers to help
within the camp.
