If you need any bad guys or just a general faction, am up for it, Vintroth can be quite a few things.. depending on what's going on.

EDIT: When you got faction leaders etc, I recommend to get everyone together on a TS or steam and discuss everything regarding faction standings, general story etc.

EDIT2:
869-The House of Vintroth loses The Duchy of Vintroth(Which is located south of Uxkhal) and more or less disappear for about 150 years.
1020-The Vintrohian banner can be seen for the first time in about 150 years, at Suno, in a tournament hosted by the Lord of Suno. Vintrothian banners are seen here and there in many years to come.
1276-Vintroth shows up in the Duchy of Vintroth with a large force and takes two Castles(Castle Westway and Castle Vintroth) in the south of the Duchy, leaving no survivors. Their plan being to take back a part of their lands during the rebellion of Dranton.
-(After 1276)
During this time Vintroth are only seen in battles that seem to benefit them, they have changed lost battles to won battles for many sides.
-(Before 1345)
1345-Lyonell is born.
1366-Lyonell's Father(William IV of Vintroth) dies and Lyonell becomes the Count of Vintroth.
1374-Lyonell is 29 years old and is looking to expand Vintroth's influence.

((If needed, things could be changed))

Updated the general timechart.

What happened to the other nations in Calradia?

PS: There are no bad guys. Just everyone vs everyone. It's a free for all RP.

There are no plotlines, aside from factions doing stuff influencing everyone.

Psst! Maybe ye should do a map and put in zones of influence?
Where the borders are etc. (for those that got borders such as Vintroth, Kingdoms etc. And other factions that got their own lands.)

Here! Have some suggestions about the other nations.
Rhodoks, slowly becoming more powerful and very wealthy.
Sarranids, Have closed borders due to their Sultan dynasty that is however dying out.
Khergits, ravaged by civil wars.
Vaegirs, Had many wars with the now very large nords, but they are holding their own, also expanding in the Khergit lands.

Korpi will join too. I'll just need to write some stuff up tomorrow.

I believe we can all agree that assassins were non-existant in such groups in Calradia

One question though Sandorra, will ye be called Korpi then? Not to be rude or anything but Korpi does not sound very lore friendly.

Ofcourse we'll be Korpi. We are a foreign mercenary company that has arrived to Calradia hired by the Vaegir Kingdom. Explains also why we speak foreign language most of you can't understand.

Edit: Only name we have been under before Korpi is Perkele. Even less lore-friendly, and we won't be returning to that name
