The Swords of Midgar
Redhold is the smallest of the northern territories, their big-brother state of Ivarmarch being not much larger. King Aermor decided that after continuous non reply from Steward Gavis of Midgar to cooperate with trade in the northern Kingdoms, that it was high time to join forces with Ivarmarch politically. Redhold is infamous amongst the nations of Larros for their battle-hardened nature as they are one of the strongest nations military-wise. They sell and import many weapons, armor, and the like; however this trade suddenly stopped when King Garen of Midgar fell ill.
When all four northern Kingdoms failed to produce a treaty with Midgar, Aermor knew what must be done. Joining with Ivarmarch, the two Kingdoms put together a team of their strongest and most experienced special forces troops and sent them to assassinate Steward Gavis. The attempt failed. This all around political failure among the four northern nations resulted in Redhold offering a treaty to the Elves, Dwarves, and Gnomes: Join together against Midgar, or face Gavis’ inevitable wrath to come.
