The Liberation of Eleusis.
#25860

El Salvador, Captain-Commanderto Everyone

During the month of Cloudburst, in the year 1290 after the Divine War, the city of Parrius launched an ambitious and aggressive campaign to seize territory from the despot city of Thakria, and in doing so, liberate some of the villages held in that city's tyrannical grip.


Some thirty thousand Parrian troops were deployed to strategic locations along the rivers Leithe and Silverlight, and the villages of Eleusis and Oakwood's End were the targets.


For half an Avalon month it appeared as though Thakria had not the audacity or desire to assemble any resistance. Thus was the decision made to stake out the city, some may even say blockade. And so it transpired that for some twenty Avalon days, four full armies of Parrian legionnaires stood poised outside the Thakrian gates at moonstone lake, hoping to quell any resistance that city might make.


As the month grew ever nearer to its close, the city of Thakria still had made no attempt to defend the lands it ruled, instead remaining cowardly behind their enormous fortifications. It was clear that the city had no intention of participating in battle, their generals having lost several smaller skirmishes to Parrius in preceding months.


And so it came to pass that the village of Oakwood's End saw many of its dictator's flags removed, almost returned to autonomy.


The village of Eleusis, however, has returned to its former autocratic independence.


On this day, Eleusians rejoice at the freedom they now have from the INDOLENT city of Thakria.


Salvador, Field Marshall of Parrius.
