Excerpt From Age of Champions
"And then the Younger Gods began to stir up the big empires to fight the little kingdoms, whose small ambitions meant less sacrifices. Yet at the same time, the small kingdoms were favored greatly as knights from other times and dimensions began to swell their lists."
-Arold Ui Techanatl YD 2354

A Message from the Younger Gods Union:
"We depise those kings who lose and sulk. We exhort those active lords to wipe them out. If so done, we will grant you favors to help your situation. If they still live at the end of YD 522, we will give the indolent 50kn under the command of their best general. This year we target the following: Po, Kinerion, Jamhal, Giltez, Orivesi, Jumtog Banga, Qaan, Saparamiba, New Mbinro and Iakbyt. Happy hunting."
