~ Campaign Notes ~

As you can see, there was only a single siege and one pitched battle during the course of these twelve months. I've still had many long years to fill with events, so I turned to cutting off the winter months with a small commentary.
Sometimes I grew tired of detailed events, and in these cases I tried to come up with something new, such as House Tempobello to somewhat stir the balance of power.
The older houses are, at this moment, still going strong, but trust me when I say they won't be going on like this forever.
