For many years Hartwood Lands have passed time without war. These peaceful lands have become full life. There are prize swans that have become fatter and more envied then any in the land. In this time a great Lord by the name of Dayma Sith passed into Valhalla. He passed into Valhalla with no heir to his wealth.  This wealth is in the form of a castle in Hartwood. Knowing that there was no one to leave this legacy to he decreed that the strongest and most noble Warlord in Hartwood would gain control of his castle. Lord Sith wanted to have the the best and most fearsome fighter to hold his legacy. So to honor this nobleman we shall do as he bid. We are calling for all the warlords to gather their armies and combat for the honor of the land.  

During Participation: Every warlord will get 100 gold coins to start to field his Army. To help out with set up if a warlord registers a week or more before the event he will get 50 gold coins to add to his purse. Every person that comes to Fowl War will get 10 gold coins to give to any Fighter or Warlord they wish. War Lords may acquire more gold coins by getting there soldiers to help within the camp.
