Stamus Contra Malum: 1013 YE
Over the last 20 years there has been a growing movement within the population of the Shaya, the elves of the Thracian Empire to retake Selenica. The current emperor however recently signed a treaty with the new ruler of Selenica, Chill Wing, to reopen trade in return for allowing the dragon’s minions to charge a tariff, The emperor needing the trade in order to support his more pressing concern with the war going on in the eastern provinces and will not even consider an expedition to retake the city.
Symbol of the New Hellions
Dissatisfied with the Emperor Maxentius and Imperial Senates lack of effort or enthusiasm, a political movement has formed known as the New Hellions, named after the separatist elves who were responsible for the city of Selenica seceding from the Empire in 967 AC. This group has been busy raising funds, gathering resources and building a private army to retake Selenica. They have also been supplying their kin who stayed behind with war materials. This is making some groups in the empire nervous and raising tensions. Currently the New Hellions are attempting to win public support for their cause and to locate magical artifacts that may be able to destroy Chill-Wing.
