The war began when assassins hired by Brill and Oren brutally murdered most of Seaholm’s leaders. The entire ruling council was wiped out in a single night as were many of it’s military leaders.
Only one of Seaholm’s generals survived the attack, Celest Tal’theron, daughter of one of the assassinated ruling council members.
Brill and Oren thought to throw Seaholm into chaos with their attack but Celest quickly took the reins of power and organized Seaholm’s defenses.
Inspired by her bravery and leadership, many citizens joined the defense forces. Brill to the north launched a large army towards Seaholm, while the the south Oren raised a slightly smaller force.
In a bold gambit Celest led the bulk of Seaholm’s forces south to face the Orenian army, giving her superior numbers in that fight but leaving Seaholm vulnerable to Brill’s considerable military might.
A single company of Seaholms forces, Wildhorse Company, was sent north to challenge Brill’s forces, which outnumbered it ten to one.
Wildhorse Company was charged with sapping the enemies strength and slowing it’s advance by any means possible, while avoiding direct engagement with the superior force.
The members of the party have joined Seaholms defense force and have been assigned to Willdhorse Company. They are members of a squad led by Kara Danvers. They ride north, soon to face their foes in battle.
