A message from Khubudai Khan, a rival khan of the Vidarians. Sent to various tribes around the steppe;
“The Osterrans walk upon our lands bringing destruction everywhere they go. They destroy towns and take our resources with impunity and the Vidar Khan does nothing, who else would do their bidding like a dog.”
A message from Jirghogadai Noyan in the steps, Vassal to Vidar Khan;
“The battles in the war against the demons have destroyed crops, burned homes, and a loss of many lives in the fighting. It seems even the Osterrans bring more destruction than the demons. Lord Khan we beseech you to end these endeavors.”
- Jirghogadai Noyan
A report from Duua, a nomad scout of Vidar Khan;
“The passageways connecting east to west are being cut off. The destruction caused by the Osterrans in the Orcs lands has made them quite desperate. They raid caravans that get too close to their territories.”
- Loyal scout Duua
A petition written by Baidan Noyan and signed by various other Noyans.
“My lord khan; I along with several other noyans would like to hold a Khuraltai to discuss the issues with the Osterrans. Recent atrocities have left many of your vassals in dire circumstances. It appears more chaos has consumed our ancestral lands than before. The Noyans that have signed wish for a declaration of war!”
- Baidan Noyan; Signed by the noyans Jatu, Torte, Cota, Orbe,
A letter from Du Huan, governor of the chugol settlement.
“Great Khan, I bring disturbing news. A group of Lumbers went into the forests but haven’t come out. There is growing discontent between the elves and our people. Our scouts have reported Osterrans within the territories listed in the treaty with the white ravens. It is not proven but the locals of Chugol have started to blame elves for the disappearance of their family members and refuse to go into the forest. We cannot increase production to help the orcs rebuild, I am sorry.”
- Du Huan
A message from the great shamans of Vidar’s court.
“Great Khan, a disturbing sign from the shamans has appeared. A new star has appeared in the sky matching the alignments of ancient texts foreboding dark prophecies. Whispers of the one called ‘he who eats’”.
