War of the Wings Postponed to 2022
Greetings to the Kingdom of Atlantia and the Known World. I come to you today with a heavy heart to announce that the Kingdom is postponing War of the Wings until 2022. Their Majesties, Mistress Edan, and the Great Officers met two weeks ago to discuss the possible need to cancel the War. We spoke again last night and the decision was made to postpone based on information from the Yadkin County Health Department as well as counsel from across the Kingdom and the Society.
The Autocrat and the Staff have worked tirelessly to plan for the event and I wish to commend everyone involved for their labor on the Kingdom’s behalf. We will turn our eyes to 2022 and pray for the end of this plague when we shall rally upon the fields at Elchenburg Castle to answer the call to War. I want to personally thank their Majesties Eckehard and Jane, Mistress Edan, David and Suzy Stewart, and the Great Officers for their wise counsel and support.

War of the Wings XV
From The Book of Stone, Vol XV
And lo, it came to pass, that the War of the Wings entered its thirteenth year, and much was made of it. Artillery shook the earth. Armor was strewn about. Crows flew over the battlefield. …parties were had.
These words now cause much sorrow and pain, for long has it been since allies or enemies gathered to strike a blow for their cause.
Wind blows quietly over the resting fields. Animals have begun to reclaim the land, only to be chased away by the scythes of field hands storing the hay for harvest.
Weeds have grown up and choked the familiar paths. The earth has taken a long, deep breath, and paused in its endless warfare.
Friends have bidden each other farewell, not realizing that eons would pass before they saw each other again, save in the firmament.
The sun has set over Elchenburg. All is dark. All is quiet. All is deserted.
But nothing lasts forever.
Two years have passed since that fateful day.
A new day dawns in Atlantia.
A seahorse as of old.
From far away, you hear the sound, where mighty hooves caress the ground.
A king stands down, and a new one crowned.
Life returns, and with it the endless bickering of enemies. And those enemies gather their allies, and begin, once again, from time immemorial, to converge on Elchenburg, lest all the lesser lands be split asunder.
This war, however, is a war, not of enmity, but of gladness. One long combat a’plaisance. The fighting begins again, but for one year at least, it is of enemies glad that they have simply survived the long, terrifying night, and rejoice in the dawning of a new day.
Welcome back to the War, my friends.
Baron Jonathan Blackbow
