Welcome to records of the 18th version of Game of Stones, the fifth age. Within these pages we plan to record the rumours, the momentous occasions, and the paths of the legendary. We seek contributions from clan leader to lowly beggar as all have a perspective to offer these annuls. And while we desire a wide swath of perspectives, it is also imperative these records rise above the petty momentary things and instead lay out the notes from which epics can be written. So let us write in good humour, with recognition given to whom it is due. For the more ambitious collectors of information, occasional notations of the top three in any given category of heroes will prove to be enlightening later on, as would maps showing the ever-changing political landscape of the land.

Day 17: The Children of the Light were spotted marching on Ebou Dar.
Day 18: The Children of the Light fought valiantly against... no one to take Ebou Dar. Reigning Black Tower notably absent. The army of Amador fell while the Children of the Light were at war, but the Trolloc horde was pushed back from the city. Rolland Redmond was seen continuing to hold onto the Horn in the Waste. The Chosen and their allies clashed with The Band of the Red Hand and their allies in a large fight for Far Madding.
Day 19: The Chosen raised their banners in victory over Far Madding even while their city of Shol Arbela is scoured by a pack of Wolfbrothers. Aloryia Viafell picked off the Horn of Valere before losing it to Wesker Gamchee who was last seen hiding out in the Sea of Storms. As their allies finish their own battle, Mashadar fell on the Hall of Servants in Rhuidean.
Day 20: Rhuidian greeted its new owners in trepidation as the shadow clan Mashadar took over the Waste's city. The Children of the Light, still on the march, arrived in Tear to again face no defenders. Out of the Forest of Shadows, Veshan Avron came against Manetheren in Emond's Field although vastly outnumbered. Meanwhile, Lord Kaldar relieved Wesker of the Horn before Inlis Sartori swept in to take the Horn as their own.
Day 21: The Children of the Light won the battle outside Tear but failed to breach the city walls. Manetheren narrowly drove off the invading force, earning them an even stronger hold of Emond's Field.
The Merchant Guilds of Kandor applauded Tyvor Daelowin and Lord Kaldar for having reached business values of over 300 gold. They also recognized Wesker Gamchee for having the third highest business value.
Following the many clan battles, Manetheren leads the world in positive alignment with Hall of Servants and Legion of the Dragon trailing behind them. The shadow of the Children of the Light grows great while the Chosen and Mashadar also make their mark. The Legion of the Dragon, Navyat Shadar, the Chosen, Manetheren, and Mashadar all hold three cities in the fractured world.
The many battles also brought out many duelers, Aloryia Viafell notching 783 wins this age with Sadira Cairhena following with 566 and Landrin Talamontanreal close behind with 552.

Day22: The Dragon rethinks battle strategy for the overall war plans with allies. Alliance holds they're lands for the most part. Battle plans on hold for Ebu Dar. Becomes Allies with Hall of servance, and gets three new clan enemy's in one day.
Day 23: The tournament in Cantorin winds down with Aloryia Viafell holding a strong lead. Three other tournaments dot the land in the lull following the many clan battles. Misieri Togama of Mashadar now holds the Horn of Valere. Leaders of the world debate the best style of hat for the season.
Day 24: A Herd of Torm was seen heading to Salidar. Many people met them in the field, with Jahar Narishma causing tremendous damage before Rollond Redmond struck the final blow. While everyone was distracted, Thomas Shinowa arrived at the city, slaying its army before they could prepare for the Torm herd, making their attack that much more dangerous.
Day 25: Rumours abound that seals to the dark one's prison have been found though the who has them changes with each telling. Misieri Togama still holds the Horn in Tarwin's Gap. The world is quiet, whether it be a collectively held breathe or simply people rebuilding and moving on in the wake of the many battles and tournaments is yet to be seen. Travelers have been heard humming a new tune picked up from the Emond's Field city boards. "Hit the road Jack.... dontcha come back no Mor,no Mor,no Mor,no Mor.."

Day 26: Lugard was besieged by an Army of Darkfriends. In response, the city hired a Band of Mercenaries to fight on their behalf. However, before the conflict, the Leaders of Mashadar and the Children of Shadow slew the mercenaries in their own camp, emboldening the Darkfriends bent on Lugard's destruction.
But after hearing of the Mercenaries' demise, the forces of Manetheren, already based in the Mountains of Mist, rode to their aid. While many members participated two should be lifted up. The strength of the Bonesmasher, First Lord of Manetheren, struck fear into the darkfriends, as well as smashing their bones. The heroics of Denneth Reynald, who fought relentlessly until the last darkfriend lay dead at his feet.
Day 28: The world wakes to Mashadar and the Legion of the Dragon having installed seals in their cities. While it may seem a tourist trap, rumours circulate that the presence of the seals create ripples in the pattern, for better and worse.
Day 29: Blood was spilled in a violent skirmish in the Waste as forces from the Children, the Legion and Mashadar pursued a Prison Seal being held by Hall strongarms. The Hall troops put up a concerted defense, denying the attackers time and time again, but in the end Aloryia proved victorious for the Children, claiming the prize.
Day 31: The Black Tower's forces have routed the Children of the Light in the battle for Ebou Dar. However, the rout masked a tactical retreat as the bulk of the Whitecloaks began laying siege to the Legion's Tarien Stronghold.
And as one battle ends, another begins as the Hall of Servants was seen infiltrating the port city of Mayne. Will continue as reports come in on this developing event.
