With the misgivings within the orclands, the Khanate has commissioned for more lumber to be produced in order to help the Orc nomads rebuild. According to the town’s governor, several lumberjacks have gone missing within the Miskri woods.
For a year, the Chugol lumber mill has been in the forest providing my khanate with valuable resources needed for building material for homes, shops, and more. The town of Chugol is a minor but vital town for trade along the Tian Shi Lake which has provided for my people. When word of the elven people were discovered, out of respect, no other lands were taken within the forest despite agreements between both the Valon and White ravens in the khanates claim upon it.
The khanate have heard nothing from the Miskri Elves. I have sent envoys to parley with the Miskri council and have heard no replies. My palace doors lay open to those with grievances, if this issue was truly dire for them, would the elves have not sent emissaries to my court? As a nomad I am often away from my capital, having to deal with warring tribes in the steppes or harmful dark cults that wish ill upon my people. Could they have not at least spoken to the advisors I leave at my court? Instead they complain to others about my supposed misgivings and immedieatly look for armed allies from outside factions as a show of hostility at our peace talks.
With the destruction of the Orclands, it is only right to help the semi nomads of the Orcish steppe territories. Gaining resources to help the orc nomads rebuild their homes destroyed during the fight against the demon general ferdinand. To fight in a war not of their choosing and suffer greatly from the mistakes of others, yet show determination and great character to move forward is greatly respected by the tribes of the steppe. It is the reason I allied with the Knights of Valon for aiding a town not within their lands, rather than the Pirates of Nuln who seek to take for their own self gain and glory. Where were the elves when the demons landed on our shores; when the cultists corrupted our peoples? Where was the aid that the Miskri gave when our fields were burning? I will tell you where, at the top of their trees looking down on the hard working peoples they deem lesser than themselves. My people’s customs of honor and respect have been met with disrespect from the elves. My heart lies with my duties to my people as their Sovereign.
Per our people’s custom we have held a Kuraltai (sacred assembly) of my advisors and generals to vote on whether we want war or peace. Per my people’s request, I, Vidar khan of the Vidarian Khanate, declare war on the Miskri Elves. This is not a war on Eleven people themselves, for they are welcome within the khanate, but on the Miskri council and their allies who deem themselves above my own people’s suffering.
