HISTORY:

 

First settlers: Circa 700 BF: 

The first known Tupmonians are known to have settled in modern-day Tupmonia around 2100 years ago. It’s not entirely clear where these settlers came from, but most sources imply that they came from a region south of Tupmonia. They called themselves the Tupans, and they are the first known men to follow Jonism. 

 

The Golban Clans: As the Tupans expanded farther north they eventually encountered the Golban Clans. The Tupans and Golban Clans attempted peace at first, but after disagreements about the division of land, it sparked several small skirmishes called the Hill Wars (around 510 BF). After a few months of fighting the Clans came out victorious, pushing the Tupans back south. 

 

The Tupan War and Establishment: 330 BF- 227 BF: 

As the population grew the Tupans attempted a second expansion into Golban territory, thus leading to another war with the clans known as the Tupan War (327-303). The war lasted for 24 years, but the Tupans came out victorious thanks to the decisive Battle of Progh, led by Ronor Lonebar. The Golban Clans were pushed northwest and most of their land was taken.

 

After the war, the Tupans decided to establish themselves as a newly built kingdom. Ronor Lonebar was crowned king for his leadership in the Tupan War. He built a formidable city called Lonebar City. A feudalistic society was adopted. Lords and knights were established over time, most of them being rich farmers, merchants, or war heroes. 


 

Expansion Era: 230 BF- 186 AF:

After Lonebar City was established, many newly appointed lords had lands granted to them to hold and manage. Over the next few centuries, castles, villages, mines, farms, and roads were built across Tupmonia, along with another city called Greenworth.

 

Jonism became much more prevalent in Tupmonian society as well. Many Jonals (temples of worship) were built across Tupmonia. The Bymons (priests) and the king at the time (King Gabriel the Holy) established a relationship between the crown and jonal in 57 BF. However, the Jonal held little power politically. 

 

Although this era mostly saw peace, there were a few rebellions. In 27 AF a small peasant rebellion was launched in a small region in the south because of unfair tax rates and poor treatment by Lord Plow, but it was quickly crushed after a failed attempt to overtake Lord Plow's keep. In 94 AF 2 of the 9 Golban clans decided to revolt because their lands were being used by Tupmonian farmers. The lords of the north and the two clans warred for a few months, but the clans didn’t have the numbers to resist the Tupmonians. 

 

The expansion finally saw a steady decline at around 180 AF. The crown had a tough time affording further expansion, and Tupmonia’s economic power slightly fell. 

 

Tykes Rebellion: 186 AF- 211 AF:

Tykes Rebellion is known to be one of the most pivotal points in Tupmonian history. It saw Lord Tyke, Lord Fenn, and several other lords rebel against the crown after Lord Tykes’ daughter, Sandra Tyke, was kidnapped, raped, and later killed by the king. Several of Lord Tykes’ men and one of his knights were killed trying to protect/save his daughter. Rilwon Fenn, heir to Lord Fenn, the king’s squire, and Sandra Tykes betrothed was also murdered by the king’s men amongst the fighting.

 

Most Lords throughout Tupmonia stayed loyal to the king out of fear and/or knowing the rebellion was a losing cause. With the rebellion heavily outnumbered, Lord Tyke attempted to ally with the Golban Clans. In return for their men and supplies, the clans would receive better weaponry, horses, gold, and they would receive some land back after the war was won. Five of the remaining eight clans agreed. Although the clans added a significant number of men to the rebellion, they were still outnumbered 2 to 1.

The Golbans used guerilla warfare tactics, while Lord Tyke used the main force of his men to besiege enemy strongholds.

 

War raged on for 25 years, but it saw the rebellion victorious. The death count of the war tallied up to around 90,000 total. House Lonebar was overthrown, and House Tyke took control of the crown. Some of the most notable turning points of the war were: The Battle of Horseshoe Road, The Greenworth Siege, The Battle of Silent Swords, and The Fall of Lonebar City. 

 

The Reconstruction Era: 211 AF- 302 AF:

After Lord Tyke took control of the crown he denounced House Lonebar of its lands and titles, executed the lords who remained loyal to the Lonebars, pardoned the lords who recognized his victory, and granted lordships and knighthood to men who had big parts in the rebellion. Lord Fenn and Lord Cobb were turned into great lords for their significance in the war, and the Golban Clans received the lands they were promised. However, the kingdom was in disarray. Lonebar City was in ruins, Greenworth sacked, and villages burned. Famines plagued Tupmonia for a year, and it resulted in at least 25,000 deaths.

 

Lonebar loyalists remained after the war and used the chaos to their advantage. They claimed that House Tyke was to blame for killing the people, and many didn’t like that their land was being given to the Golban Clans. The loyalists formed a small army and called themselves The Kingsmen. They didn't recognize House Tyke as the new royal family. They terrorized newly claimed Golban lands and attacked Tupmonian villages However, they didn't become a major problem until later on. 

 

It took nearly a century to rebuild Tupmonia back to what it was. When the Reconstruction Era came to an end Tupmonia was split into three different provinces: The East, The West, and The South.  The city of Magnolia was built (the capital of Tupmonia) in The East, and it was named the new royal seat. Greenworth and The South were given to Lord Fenn to govern under the crown. Finally, Lonebar City (renamed Warrington after the rebellion) and The West were given to Lord Cobb to govern under the crown.

 

The War of the Three Kings: 305 AF- 308 AF:

As the Reconstruction Era came to an end The Kingsmen had gathered near 3,000 fighting men and the support of most of the people that were moved off the land that was given to the Golbans. Instead of waging war on the Tupmonians (knowing they had nowhere near the numbers and supplies needed for even a chance of victory), the loyalist group decided to wage war against the much less equipped Golban Clans. They planned to take over the Golban lands and form a separate kingdom. The Kingsmen were led by Rob Lonebar, the great-grandson of the last Lonebar king. The king of Tupmonia didn’t intervene. He decided to let them fight it out and would sweep up whatever remained of the Kingsmen. 

 

The Golban Clans and The Kingsmen warred for around two and a half years. No side held an upper hand, but both sides were weakening fast. In June of 308 AF, King Noah Tyke sent 7,000 men to meet the remaining Kingsmen in the field. The Kingsmen were destroyed within an hour (This battle is known as Lonebars Last Stand). Rob Lonebar was captured and executed two months later. This ended military opposition against the new monarch for centuries to come. 

 

The Prosper Era: 310 AF- 1048 AF:

When the Reconstruction Era came to an end, the economy saw a steady rise due to plentiful harvests and successful trade across Tupmonia. The population grew exponentially as well, thus leading to improved and more frequent infrastructure. 

The near 900 years of growth cemented Tupmonia as an agricultural-driven country. Tupmonia also expanded their trade in this era. Fhaengshia and Tupmonia signed a deal in 1043 (shortly after Giovanniland withdrew from Fhaengshia) that allowed trade between the two nations (the nations traded before but under heavy tolls). The trade deal also allowed Tupmonia to use Fhaengshias ports in return for a percentage of the profits. The deal opened up trade to other nations across the world and it also improved foreign relations. 

 

Viggo’s Conquest: 564 AF- 577 AF: 

Although Tupmonia thrived during this era, the Golbans saw more war. Tykes Rebellion, Lonebars Last Stand, and the famines following the wars crippled the Golban population. Only four of the original twelve clans remained when the Prosper Era began. 

The Loshad clan held 40% of the Golban territory, while the other three clans shared the remaining 60%. The disagreement of land distribution and division of necessities became a big issue amongst the Golbans and created a lot of tension between the clans. Most of the blame was pointed towards the Loshad Clan because of their wealth and holdings. Many accused the Loshads of being Tupmonian loyalists because of their lasting friendship with the Tupmonians after Tykes Rebellion. 

 

In 564 Viggo Otamar, the leader of the Loshad Clan declared war on the three other Golban Clans. Viggo and the Loshad clan were outnumbered 25,000 to 10,000. The clans warred for 13 years (with no Tupmonian interference) and Viggo came out victorious after the only clan remaining surrendered. The Loshad clan now held 85% of Golban territory and the Svitoy Clan held the remaining land. Viggo is now known as one of the greatest warriors and generals in Golban history. 

 

The End of Feudalism: 1048 AF-1060 AF: 

With trade expanding, many towns and cities grew in population as a result. This led to feudal lords holding less power, while the king and the people gained more power. The feudal system quickly became inefficient. Lords attempted to keep their peasants on their manors and lands, this eventually led to several peasant revolts (1049-1058) around the kingdom, most of them being successful. Feudalism was fully abolished in 1060 AF. 

 

The Modern Age: 1060 AF- Present

With Feudalism abolished, Tupmonia was now transitioning into a capitalist society. Many Lords lost their power and titles, which led to castles and strongholds being abandoned across Tupmonia. However, lords and knights still existed in society. Many were given military tasks, became politicians, or given local governance authority (but with much less power than before). On the other hand, many smaller knights and lords kept their titles, but they didn’t hold much power at all. 

 

In 1181 the People's Choice Act was established after a long and strong push for reform. It made changes to the electoral system in Tupmonia. The Tupmonian Legislature was formed as a result, it allowed eligible citizens to vote for people to represent them. Most of the people in the legislature were lords and knights, but that slowly changed over time. Although the legislature had some power, most of their power was for appearance to make it seem like the people had more representation, when in reality most of the power was still held by the king and wardens. 

 

A major change also came in the Golban Tupmonian relations. In 1247 Golbans were offered Tupmonian citizenship and were given the right to run and vote for positions in government. Most Golbans agreed and a new city was built in Golban territory called Viggo. However there were some that disagreed and formed their own clan and called themselves The Ancient Ones (or Drevniy in Ancient Golban. This clan is still around today and they live in the northern Tupmonian countryside. 

 

Along with Magnolia, Greenworth, Warrington, and now Viggo a couple more cities were built. Joland (also known as the Holy City) was fully built in Southwest Tupmonia in the year 1285. And Fennview was built in Southeast Tupmonia and completed in the year 1312. An intricate road system was built to connect the cities making transportation a lot easier. 

 

The modern history of Tupmonia was mostly peaceful, besides some conflict with The Ancient Ones. Tupmonia is now known as a nation with a rich history and is still developing to greatness today.

Government:

Tupmonia is run through an Absolute monarchy system. The Royal House of Tyke has ruled Tupmonia for just over 1,200 years. The current ruler is King Joseph VII, and his queen is Lyanna Reed. He has ruled Tupmonia since 1403. 

 

The Great Houses- Tupmonia is split into 3 different provinces, each governed by a different great house. The South is governed by House Fenn. The current warden of The South is Rory Fenn II. He has governed The South since 1407. The West is governed by House Cobb. The current warden of The West is William Cobb. He has governed The West since 1377. Finally, The East is controlled by the royal house of Tyke. Although House Tyke rules all three provinces, their prime focus is pointed to the East.

 

The Council- Each great house has its own council of 5 people. The types of people can range anywhere from a random civilian to a lord. The council of each great house is chosen by the ruler of each great house. There are 3 requirements to qualify for a council spot: Over the age of 25, Tupmonian citizenship for at least 20 years, and residency in your province for at least 10 years. 

The Council serves as a cabinet of advisors to their warden/king on major issues across their lands. In 1322 a law was passed that any king/warden that came into power under the age of 20 must follow the majority vote of their council whether or not they agree with the ruling, thus putting younger and less experienced kings/wardens in check. 

 

Tupmonian Legislature-

The Tupmonian Legislature is made up of 52 legislators. 2 from each of the 26 counties in Tupmonia. They are voted in by the people every 3 years (one term). Every legislator can serve a max 3 terms. The qualifications for a spot on the legislature include: Over the age of 25, Tupmonian citizenship for at least 15 years, and residency in your county for at least 7 years.

Chapter 1: Wars and Major Battles Throughout Tupmonian History

 

The Hill Wars - 510 BF: 

                                               Tupans: 15,000- 20,000 men                                               

 Golban Clans: 55,000 men 

The Hill Wars were a series of battles between the newly settled Tupans and the already established Golban Clans. The war was started because of an attempted expansion of Tupan lands into Golban territory. After failed negotiations between the clans and the Tupans, both parties declared war on each other. It’s not completely clear how long the war lasted, but most sources agree that it lasted around eight months. 

 

The Ferme Raids:

The Tupans began to raid the Ferme Clans’ territory, killing and burning as they went. Dozens of Ferme civilians were killed savagely in the raiding. 

 

Battle of Retreat: 

Tupans (Battle Commander - Lytos): 2,000 

Ferme Clan (Battle Commander - Fendo): 200

Tupan general, Lytos, sends a small group of around 100 men to attack a Ferme Clansmen camp of around 200 fighters, and to make it seem like they’re retreating. When the group of 100 Tupans reached the camp they fought and when they retreated the Ferme Clansmen were in hot pursuit. The Tupans led the pursuing clansmen into a trap where Lytos and 1,900 of his men demolished the Ferme force. This battle allowed the Tupans to take Ferme territory with little military opposition.

Tupan Casualties: 80

Ferme Casualties: 190 (Fendo was killed in battle)

 

Kimol’s Stand:

Tupans (Battle Commander - Lytos): 3,000

Loshad Clan (Battle Commander - Kimol): 2,000

With raiding in eastern Golbania and battling all over the central hills, High King Svilano of the Golban Clans sent Kimol and 2,000 of his Loshad Clansmen to halt the raiding and to take back Ferme lands from Lytos and his men. When Kimol arrived in Ferme land they were ambushed by Lytos, who saw them coming. Kimol suffered major losses and was sent running. Lytos was on his tail and Kimol and his remaining 500 men were forced to stand and fight against the 2,800 incoming Tupans (Many believe Kimol had far more men to withstand the Tupans, and that the records were exaggerated to make Kimols victory look greater than it was). The Loshad clansmen held their ground for hours and pushed back Lytos and his army. Despite winning the battle the Golbans took similar losses to the Tupans. 

Tupan Casualties: 2,100

Loshad Casualties: 1,800

 

Battle of Yika Valley: 

Tupans (Battle Commander - Rymar): ~11,000 

Golban Clans (Battle Commander - High King Svilano): 35,000

After about six months of fighting along the central hills, the Tupans finally split the Golban force and advanced into the heart of Golbania with around 11,000 men. Their advancement was halted by a major Golban army of 35,000 men, led by the Golban king himself. The two forces battled for nearly a whole day, but the Tupans simply didn’t have the numbers to combat the Golban force. The Tupans were pushed back south, Rymar was slain in battle, and the Tupans lost most of their men. This battle devastated the Tupan army and it was what ended the Hill Wars. It is known as one of the bloodiest battles in Tupmonias history. 

Tupan Casualties: ~9,000 (General Rymar was killed in battle)

Golban Casualties: ~4,000

 

War Turnout: 

Fighting continued to rage on in Ferme lands for a couple more months, but Lytos held the territory well. Both parties agreed to peace in late November of 510 BF with the First Border Treaty. The Tupans now held Ferme territory, and gave up the rest of what they took. On the other hand, the Ferme Clan was completely destroyed. 

Tupan Total Casualties: ~13,500 soldiers + 50-100 civilians 

Golban Clans Total Casualties: ~8,000 soldiers + ~500 civilians

Total Casualties: ~22,000

The Tupan War: 327 BF- 303 BF

 

Tupans: 28,000 men 

Golban Clans: 48,000 men 

The Tupan War is what turned the Tupan settlers into a full fledged kingdom. With the Tupan population rapidly increasing, the Tupans looked to further expand their territory into Golban lands for a second time. The Golbans refused negotiations, which led to the Tupans declaring war on the clans, despite their inferior numbers. The Tupan War is the second longest war in Tupmonian history, lasting 24 years. It is also known as the second bloodiest war in Tupmonian history. Ronor Lonebar led the smaller Tupmonian army to victory which won him his crown after the war.

327 BF- The Tupans began the war by spreading raiders out to the weaker military clans to spread out the Golban army. 

Battle of Strish- 326 BF

Tupans (Battle Commander - Berengar Otto): 400 

Zivoti and Stroyel clans (Battle Commanders - Anze and Tijmen): 300 

Local Zivoti and Stroyel clansmen send 300 men to retaliate against Tupan raiders in the west. The Tupan raiders were caught by surprise, but were able to hold their ground against the two clans. The small Zivoti army was obliterated. On the other hand, many of the Stroyel clansmen were able to escape back into their territory. Even though this battle doesn't seem so significant, it ultimately allowed the Tupans to easily take Zivoti lands. 

Tupan Casualties: 115

Zivoti and Stroyel Casualties: 150 (Anze was killed in battle)

 

Red River Battles- 321 BF- 305 BF

The Red River Battles were a series of battles over the span of 16 years. The Golbans looked to cross the river that separated Golbania from Tupan territories. Their plan was to conquer Tupan lands and crush their inferior army by taking them head on. The Golbans sent several groups of men (spanning from a few hundred to as much as 16,000) to cross the river at different points and to meet at a certain point at the other side of the river. Ronor Lonebar led the main force against the Golban crossers. He and his 8,000 men encamped along the river and held off thousands of Golbans for years. He unleashed arrows on the incoming Goban ships, and when they would reach land he would push them back. Over the years his numbers slowly dwindled and he couldn't hold the river at every point, this led to more and more Golbans being able to cross easily. These battles are where Ronor gained his fame, and where the river got the name “The Red River.”  

Tupan Casualties: ~6,000

Golban Casualties: ~11,000

 

Zivoti Massacres: 325 BF- 323 BF

Tupans (Battle Commander - Berengar Otto): 800

Zivoti Warriors: 30

After the Battle of Strish, Berengar Otto received reinforcements and advanced into Zivoti territory. With the Zivoti army destroyed, Bernegar quickly advanced into Zivoti lands, burning, killing, and looting as he went. He destroyed the little opposition that he received, and according to accounts he murdered hundreds to thousands of Zivoti civilians. This led to the end of the Zivoti Clan and the Tupan occupation of Zivoti territory.

Tupan Casualties: ~20

Zivoti Casualties: 500- 2,000 civilians 

 

Battle of Sandfront: 315 BF

Tupans: 10,000 (led by Henry Osbert) + 2,000 reinforcements (led by Ronor Lonebar)

Golban Clans: 15,000 (led by Ennio Chidek)

By 315 BF about 15,000 Golbans successfully crossed the river (Mostly Yika and Mech clansmen). Their goal was to capture a Tupan stronghold far south, but they were met by 10,000 Tupans who were sent to halt their advance. The two sides battled, but after some time it was clear that the Golbans held the upper hand. When the battle seemed lost Ronor and 2,000 of his river defenders took the Golban army in the rear and gave the Tupans a chance at victory. Days prior to the battle, Ronor got word that 15,000 Golbans were advancing on the southern stronghold, and that Henry Osbert and 10,000 men were going to cease their advance. Ronors orders were to remain at the river. However, Ronor gathered 2,000 men and advanced south, while he left another 2,500 men to hold the river. Even though the Tupans ended up losing the battle the Golbans lost more men than the Tupans did. The Golbans continued south to take the stronghold. 

Tupan Casualties: 8,000

Golban Casualties: 9,000


 

Battle of Green Valley: 310 BF

Tupans (Battle Commander - Berengar Otto): 1,200

Stroyel and Kapio Clansmen: 1,000

After securing Zevoti territory, Berengar Otto and his party were ordered to take Stroyel land next. The Stroyel army was weak with only around 100-200 men. Berengar started raiding lands to draw out the remaining clansmen, but instead of being met by 200 men, Berengar was met by 1,000 men. 800 Kapio men were sent to help the Stroyel clan in case Berengar came to take it, and he did. The two armies fought in a valley near a village. Bernagar almost lost the battle due to him underestimating the enemy, but his men were able to pull through victorious. Many say if Berengar lost this battle, it would’ve led to the Golbans retaking their lands and the Tupans losing the war, with Berengar holding the Stroyel and Zevoti lands it made movement of the Golban armies much harder. This victory nearly destroyed Berengar's army, but his remaining men were able to take the rest of Stroyel territory. 

Tupan Casualties: 900

Stroyel and Kapio Casualties: 980

 

Battle of Hindston: 307 BF

Tupans (Battle Commander - Joseth Arozen): 7,000

Golban Clansmen (Battle Commander - Ennio Chidek): 10,000

The Golbans were still crossing the Red River and joining the Golban host that was advancing through Tupan territory. Ennio’s force from the Battle of Sandfront was reinforcing as they went and pursued Tupan scouts. Joseth Arozen received reports that the Golban army only consisted of 5,000 men. When Joseth heard the reports he gathered 7,000 men and fell upon the Golban army. It turns out the Golban army consisted of double the men than they thought. The Tupan army was crushed and Arozen and his remaining men retreated. The Golbans took minimal damage and continued their advance. 

Tupan Casualties: 5,500

Golban Casualties: 1,700 

 

Battle of Rivercross: 305 BF 

Tupans (Battle Commander - Sava Vayne): 1,400

Golban Clansmen (Battle Commander - Yamuna Reba): 16,000

This battle is known to be the last of the Red River Battles. The Tupan river defenders were weakening quickly and were now led by Sava Vayne because Ronor Lonebar and his men remained in the south. The Golbans sent 16,000 men to cross the river to join Ennios' army in Tupan lands. Sava and his 1,400 men knew they would lose, but before they did they attempted to inflict as much damage as possible. The Tupan river defenders unleashed thousands of arrows on the incoming ships. Tupan defenses like spikes and deep mud holes slowed down the Golbans when they eventually reached land. Savas' army was eventually overrun and his men were slaughtered. Sava was killed in battle. Savas son, David Vayne took control of the retreat and headed south to join the rest of the Tupan army. The Golban army successfully crossed the river… but not so easily. 

Tupan Casualties: 900 (Sava Vayne was killed in battle)

Golban Casualties: 3,000

 

Battle of Progh: 304 BF

Tupans (Battle Commander - Ronor Lonebar): 5,800

Golban Clans (Battle Commander - Ennio Chidek): 22,000

At this point in the war the Golbans seemed to have already won. Ennios' army took most of Tupan lands and won two major battles against the Tupans. The Golban army was also reinforced with another 13,000 men from the Battle of Riverfront. The Tupan army remained in their southwest stronghold with around 5,800 men, all from different armies: Henry Osbert had 3,000 men after his loss at the Battle of Sandfront, while Ronor Lonebar had 1,000 men remaining after that battle. Joseth Arozens army of 7,000 men was now an army of 1,300, and David Vayne had 500 survivors with him from the Battle of Riverfront. Berengar Otto remained in the lands that he took from the Golbans with his 200 men, fighting off small bands of Golban raiders, it was clear that he didn't have the strength to hold the land much longer. 

The war seemed lost and all the Golban host had to do was take the last Tupan stronghold and then advance north to retake the lands from Berengar. 

Ronor led the final defense against the Golban army. His plan was to split up the 500 men under David Vayne into small bands of men. They were ordered to hit weak points of the incoming army and to weaken it as much as possible with small and quick raids. Ronor ordered Joseth Arozen to remain in the high walled stronghold with 300 men and to abandon the army camps outside of the walls to make it look like the main Tupan force moved when they saw the incoming army. After the Golbans would lay siege, Ronor and his 5,000 men would take the Golban army unaware. When the battle would commence David Vayne and his men were ordered to cut down anyone who tried to flee. Just in case the battle didn’t go their way, Joseth Arozen was ordered to stay in the stronghold and hold it if Ronors army was unsuccessful. 

David Vayne and his men killed or scattered nearly 2,000 Golbans through dozens of small attacks to the Golban army's rear, while only losing about 80 men of his own. When the Golbans finally reached the gates with 20,000 men they found the walls poorly manned and the camps abandoned. Ennio assumed the Tupan host retreated and laid siege to the stronghold. Joseth Arozen and his men put down heavy arrow fire, while Ronor and his army remained hidden not too far away. After about a few hours of siege Ronor Lonebar led his men to take on the Golban army. Even though the Tupans were outnumbered 4 to 1 the element of surprise gave them a winning chance. Many of the Golbans scattered in confusion and before Ennio could gather his men in formation it was too late. The Golban army retreated back west, but they were pursued by David Vaynes' men and many more Golbans were cut down. Ennio died of arrow wounds during the retreat. The battle forced the Golbans back into their lands and ultimately won the war for the Tupans. 

Tupan Casualties: 3,800

Golban Casualties: 17,000 (Ennio and Yamuna were killed in battle)

 

War Turnout: 

After the Battle of Progh, Ronor Lonebar pushed the Golbans back north. Even though the Golbans still outnumbered the Tupans 2 to 1, their losses were far more significant than the Tupans. The High King of the Golbans, and Ronor of the Tupans declared for peace in late 304 BF with the Second Border Treaty. The Tupans now had full control over Zivoti and Stroyel territory, with those two clans being destroyed in the war. This war led to the full establishment of Tupmonia and Ronor Lonebar was crowned king. 

Total Tupan Casualties: ~25,300 soldiers + ~1,000-7,000 civilians

Notable Deaths- Sava Vayne, Bobby Ashwin, Cleos Osbert, Edward Niyazov

 

Total Golban Casualties: ~43,000 soldiers + ~3,000-10,000 civilians 

Notable Deaths- Anze of Zivoti, Tijmen of Stroyel, Yamuna Reba, Ennio Chidek

 

Total Casualties: 72,000- 85,000

Tupmonia Wiki: Chapter 1, Part 3

 

Plows’ Peasant Revolt: 27 AF

House Plow: 2,000

Vs

Peasantry of House Plow

 

Plows’ Peasant Revolt is known to be the first major revolt in Tupmonia. The revolt resulted in the victory of Lord Plow, but major reforms were brought after the revolt – changing the way Tupmonia ran. 

 

The Manor Fires: March 25, 27 AF

In mid January of 27 AF tensions began to rise between Lord Plow and his peasants because of poor treatment and unfair tax rates from Lord Plow. After about a month of pleading for change and continued poor treatment by Lord Plow, 100’s of peasants rose in arms against their lord. Lockwills Manor was burned down where one of Lord Plows' knights (Ser Mark Lifder) was killed in the fire along with a few of Lord Plows' men. 

 

The Mob Attacks: April 3, 27 AF

After the fires, Lord Plow sent 100 of his men to keep the peace among the peasants. When Plows’ men reached the village they were savagely attacked by hundreds of peasants. Violent fighting ensued throughout the village, but the 100 soldiers were not enough. It’s estimated that nearly 130 civilians were killed and 93 of Lord Plows’ men were killed as well. 

 

Grove Hall Massacre: April 18, 27 AF

At this point the peasants gathered near 700 people willing to fight Lord Plow. The leader of the revolt, Jon Rolfe gathered everyone he could and met outside Lord Plow's keep – demanding him to come out. After about an hour Lord Plow ordered his men to open fire on the peasants. This led to some peasants running, while others decided to try to overtake the keep. Hundreds died trying to climb the walls. The few that got over were instantly cut down. Jon Rolfe was killed amongst the fighting. This slaughter put an end to the revolt. Lord Plow was heavily fined by the king for his actions and new tax reforms were put into place. 

 

Plows Soldiers Casualties: 98

Notable Death(s): Ser Mark Lifder

 

Peasant Casualties: 436

Notable Death(s): Jon Rolfe

Tupmonia Wiki: Chapter 1, Part 4

The Two Clan Revolt: 94 AF

Northern Tupmonian Lords: 7,000

Koni and Okontik Clans: 2,000

The Two Clan Revolt was started by two of the nine remaining Golban clans. The Okontik and Koni clans took up arms against the Tupmonians after some Tupmonians began to settle on their countryside, using the land for farming. The war lasted nearly a year and it saw the end of the Koni clan.

 

The Farmland Slaughter: 

In around February of 94 AF, a group of around 200 Tupmonian citizens began to settle countryside shared by the Koni and Okontik clans. The clans didn't realize it for about a month but when they did the leader of the Koni clan sent 300 men to drive them off. The Tupmonians refused and fighting began (it’s unknown who started the violence). The Tupmonian citizens were no match for the Koni soldiers and were slaughtered. Some Tupmonians escaped and alerted their lords, while most of the others were killed or captured. 

Tupmonian Casualties: 160 civilians  

Koni Casualties: 12 Soldiers

 

Malos Ambush: 

Tupmonians (Commander - Ser Marlis Otto): 1,000 

Okontik Warriors (Commander - Malo of Okontik): 400

After being alerted, Lord Otto sent his son Ser Marlis with 1,000 men to free the captured Tupmonians. While traveling through the Golban Forest Ser Marlis and his host were ambushed by 400 Okontik men. The Tupmonians were destroyed and Ser Marlis was killed. After this battle the Okontik and Koni clans were in open rebellion against the Tupmonians. 

Tupmonian Casualties: 700 (Ser Marlis Otto was killed in battle)

Okontik Casualties: 30
 

Battle of Fiery Fields: 

Tupmonians (Commander - Lord Jeffery Balfour): 5,000

Koni and Okontik (Commander - Loel of Hoombaro): 200

When Lord Otto heard of his son's death, he gathered the lords in the region and assembled 5,000 men to conquer enemy lands. A mix 200 Okontik and Koni men were guarding the largest village in Koni territory, just in case raiders would show up, but when the Golban guardsmen saw an army of 5,000 approaching they began to evacuate the town. While some of the clansmen were evacuating citizens, the others were attempting to push the Tupmonians back. The Tupmonian army burned and killed everything in their path, whether it be soldiers or civilians. And the 200 Golbans that were tasked with guarding the field lost the battle in under an hour.

Tupmonian Casualties: 50

Koni and Okontik Casualties: 190 soldiers + 70 civilians (Loel of Hoombaro was killed in battle)


 

Battle of the Border: 

Tupmonian Border Guards (Commander - Ser Boros Ike): 300

Okontik and Koni Warriors (Commander - Malo of Okontik): 800

After the Battle of Fiery Fields, Malo of Okontik gathered his 400 men and another 400 Koni men and attempted to advance into Tupmonian lands to retaliate. Malos 800 men were met by 300 Tupmonians that were tasked to defend the border. Even though the Golbans had more men, the Tupmonian guards were better armed and armored, while also holding a terrain advantage. The Tupmonians did a good job holding off the incoming Golbans at first, but eventually a weak point in the Tupmonian line was exploited and Malos men had a fighting chance. Gory fighting continued along the hill, but the Golbans overwhelmed the Tumonians. Ser Boros Ike was captured and the rest of his host was put to the sword. 

Tupmonian Casualties: 280

Okontik and Koni Casualties: 200

 

Battle of Creenor:

Tupmonians (Commander - Lord Randyl Tyke): 700

Okontik and Koni Clansmen (Commander - Malo of Okontik): 600

Malos remaining 600 men continued to advance into Tupmonia. After a few days of advancement, Malos host was met by 700 Tupmonians led by Lord Tyke. After a failed cavalry charge by the Tupmonians to break the enemy, Malo gained an upper hand. The two sides fought fiercely, but Malos' men came out victorious, and Lord Tyke retreated. 

Tupmonian Casualties: 560

Okontik and Koni Casualties: 300

 

Konilo Siege:

Tupmonians (Commander - Lord Jeffery Balfour): 5,000

Koni and Okontik (Commander - Kemal of Koni): 1,000

While Malo and his 800 men advanced into Tupmonia, the rest of the Koni and Okontik clansmen remained in their fortification (Konilo), awaiting the incoming 5,000 Tupmonians from the Battle of Fiery Fields. Lord Balfour decided to storm the fort because of reports of Malo and his men quickly advancing into Tupmonia. The garrison held off the 5,000 Tupmonians for an entire night, until Lord Balfour and his men were forced to retreat. 1,000 Golbans held off 5,000 Tupmonians, this siege is known to be one of the greatest Golban victories in their history. Lord Balfour returned south to help the Tupmonians against Malo. 

Tupmonian Casualties: 3,700

Koni and Okontik Casualties: 200

 

Ikenhall Siege:

Garrison of Ikenhall (Commander - Lord Yorlen Ike): 50

Okontik and Koni Warriors (Commander - Malo of Okontik): 300

After winning two major battles against the Tupmonians, Malo and his men had taken a good portion of Tupmonian land with only 800 men. Malo moved on Ikenhall after winning the Battle of Creenor. Ikenhall’s garrison only consisted of around 50 men (the rest of House Ikes’ men were killed, captured, or scattered in the Battle of the Border). Malo also had the son of Lord Yorlen Ike in his possession, and threatened to kill him if Lord Ike wouldn't surrender. After hours of negotiation Lord Ike decided to surrender his castle in return for his and his people's lives. Malo agreed, but when Lord Ike opened his gates Lord Ike, his family, his men, and his smallfolk were all put to the sword. Malo and his men now held a strong position in Ikenhall.

Tupmonian Casualties: 50 soldiers + 30 castle servants (Lord and Lady Ike were executed, along with their 2 sons and infant daughter)

Golban Casualties: 0

 

Battle of Ikenhall: 

Tupmonians (Commander - Lord Jeffery Balfour): 1,700

Okontik and Koni (Commanders - Malo of Okontik, Kemal of Koni): 300 + 800

Lord Balfour and his 1,300 men returned south after their devastating loss at the Konilo Siege. He gathered the remaining men from the Battle of the Border and the Battle of Creenor, Lord Otto also sent 200 men to join Lord Bafours army. The Tupmonian army of 1,700 men laid siege on Ikenhall. Malo and his garrison only had supplies for around a month, so all the Tupmonians had to do was wait. After about a week of siege the Tupmonian army was hit in their rear by Kemal of Koni with his 800 men from the Konilo Siege. When battle ensued Malo and most of his men sallied out of the castle to help his fellow Golbans. Many Tupmonians scattered, but Lord Balfour was able to get his men in formation and fought back fiercely. He focused his force on Malos 230 men and took them out. Kemal's men were more of a problem, their strong shield wall pushed the Tupmonians back to the castle walls, while the remaining Golbans in the castle rained arrows on them. The battle took a turn however, Lord Roote and around 100 men broke a small part of the Koni shield wall. Before the Koni line could recover it was too late. The Tupmonians now had the Golban line in their hands and were able to push them back. The garrison of 70 men that remained in Ikenhall surrendered after hearing the news of Malos death. The captains were killed, while the rest were imprisoned. Kemal was also killed amongst the fighting, but some of his men were able to escape (around 100).

Many historians believe that if the Tupmonians lost this battle they would’ve  eventually lost their northern territory, which in turn might have led to the involvement of the other seven Golban clans, seeing that they might have a chance to win back a heavy chunk of territory back from the Tupmonians. On the other hand, many believe that even if the Golbans did win the battle they wouldn't have enough men to take on the rest of Tupmonia even if the other clans did join the war.

Tupmonian Casualties: 1,300

Koni and Okontik Casualties: 950 (Malo of Okontik and Kemal of Koni were killed in battle)

 

War Turnout:

The remaining Koni and Okontik fighters retreated back into their lands preparing for siege. When the Tupmonians arrived in Koni lands they laid siege on Konilo once more. After about a five week siege the Koni surrendered their fortification and lands (The Second Konilo Siege). When the Okontik heard that their fellow Golbans were defeated they pleaded for peace. The Tupmonians agreed. The Koni clan was destroyed and the Okontik lost half of their lands. 

 

Total Tupmonian Casualties: 6,700 soldiers + 400 civilians 

Notable Deaths: Lord Yorlen Ike, Lady Erika Ike, Ser Boros Ike, Ser Marlis Otto, Ser Sam Tyke, Lord Doug Pine, Ser Cranton Ryley


 

Total Koni and Okontik Casualties: 1,900 soldiers + 300 civilians 

Notable Deaths: Malo of Okontik, Kemal of Koni, Loel of Hoombaro

Tupmonia Wiki: Chapter 1, Part 5 

Tykes Rebellion: 186 AF- 211 AF

Tupmonian Rebels + Golban Clans: 20,000 men

Tupmonians: 40,000 men

Tykes Rebellion (also known as the Tupmonian Civil War) is probably the most famous war in Tupmonias history. Lord Robert Tyke and several other Tupmonian lords declared war on the ruling Lonebars, after King Alfan Lonebar kidnapped, raped, and evetually killed the daughter of Lord Tyke, along with several of Tykes’ household guards, one of his knights, and Rilwon Fenn – heir to Lord Fenn. When Lord Tyke declared war on the crown most lords remained loyal to the king out of fear or wanting to fight on the winning side. This war remains as Tupmonias longest and most bloody war. House Lonebar lost their position as the royal house and Tupmonia became a much different country after the rebellion under the rule of House Tyke. 

 

The Cause of War: 

In spring of 185 AF, Lord Robert Tyke and Lord Albert Fenn agreed upon a betrothal. Sandra Tyke (13 yrs) was to marry Rilwon Fenn (19 yrs). Rilwon was squireing for King Alfan Lonebar in Lonebar City, so Sandra moved to the capital to be with her betrothed. Lord Tyke sent ten of his household guards, one of his knights (Ser Thomas Hammel), and two handmaids to accompany Sandra in the capital. When Sandra arrived she had a comfortable seat in the castle and often attended the king's court. After a few months Sandra was taken into the kings custody, and was raped. It's unclear what led up to this, but it’s known that King Alfan took a strong liking to the daughter of Lord Tyke. When Ser Thomas heard of the news he gathered his guards and Rilwon Fenn and stormed the throne room, killing two men in the process. King Alfan was surrounded by all ten of his Kingsguard who were some of the greatest fighters in Tupmonia. Ser Thomas demanded Sandra be freed or fighting would ensue. The king ordered his men to kill Sandras guards, and so the fighting began. Ser Thomas Hammel and Rilwon Fenn were killed in the fighting. Two of the Kingsguard were killed (Ser Arthur Moore and Ser Enes Bode). Three of Sandras remaining guards threw down their swords and surrendered. They were arrested and later both of Sandras handmaids were arrested as well. When word eventually reached Lord Fenn and Lord Tyke, they instantly considered waging war. Lord Hammel joined the call to war when he heard of his son's death. Lord Cobb (father in-law to Lord Fenn) and Lord Arozen (father in-law to Lord Tyke) also joined the war after some convincing. Several other houses were asked to join the rebellion, but only House Niyazov joined because of their friendship with House Tyke dating back to the Hill Wars. The six lords combined for 7,000 fighting men: House Fenn had the majority of men, with around 3,000. House Tyke supplied 1,300 men. House Cobb had 1,100 men. House Arozen put 900 men to the cause, and House Hammel gave 700. Finally, House Niyazov only had 150 men that could fight. When King Alfan heard about Lord Tykes call to war he summoned his armies to Lonebar City. The king's army had about 40,000 men total. 

 

The Rebel-Golban Alliance: Nov, 186 AF

The rebels knew they had no chance with only 7,000 men. Shortly after Lord Tyke declared war, he traveled into Golban territory in hopes to form an alliance. Lord Tyke and his generals met with the heads of all eight clans. After long negotiations with the clans, five of the eight agreed to join the war. The Loshad Clan, Luchnik Clan, Mech Clan, Reed Clan, and Kapio Clan joined, adding 12,000 men to Lord Tykes army. In return for their men the Golbans would receive gold, horses, and weapons, and after the war was won they were to receive some of their lands back. 

 

The Battles of Horseshoe Road: Jan- Mar, 187 AF

Tupmonian Rebels (Commander’s - Lord Aaron Cobb and Musa of Mech) : 5,000

Tupmonians: 500 in the Western Fort, 500 in the Eastern Fort, and 1,000 in the Center Fort

While King Alfan still held most of his army at Lonebar City, Lord Tyke ordered Lord Cobb to gather 5,000 men and take Horseshoe Road – the main road that acted as a trade route between the two major Tupmonian cities – Greenworth and Lonebar City. The plan was to take the three small strongholds along the road. Two of the strongholds were located at the far ends of the road; they were much smaller than the main stronghold in the center of the road, and only held around 500 men in each of them. Lord Cobb split his men into two groups of 2,500 men. He led one of the groups to take the Western Fort near Lonebar City. Musa of Mech commanded the other group of 2,500 men and was ordered to take the Eastern Fort near Greenworth. Both forts were taken pretty easily. Both parties left a small garrison to hold the forts and the rest advanced on the Center Fort. The Center Fort was attacked from the east and the west, which made it much harder for the enemy to defend. Lord Cobb took the fort within three days. Lord Cobb lost around 1,000 men taking the three road forts, but the rebels now held a huge advantage with having the road. Lord Cobb sent Musa of Mech with 500 men to join Lord Fenn and his men who were moving on Greenworth, while he stayed with 3,000 men to hold the Center Fort against any enemies trying to pass. 

Rebel Casualties: 1,000

Tupmonian Casualties: 1,800 (the Road Lords were destroyed: Lord Garland Ceford, Lord Byron Weford, and Lord Kevan Eaford were killed in battle)


 

Greenworth Siege: July 187- Feb 188

Tupmonian Rebels (Commanders - Lord Fenn, Lord Hammel, Draven of Loshad: 12,000

Garrison of Greenworth (Lord Gaston Greenview): 2,000

Once Lord Fenn got word that Lord Cobb took Horseshoe Road he moved his host to take the city of Greenworth. He laid siege on the city with 12,000 men. The siege lasted over half a year, but in February, 188 AF Lord Fenn and his men finally got through the walls with a desperate push. Many surrendered when the rebels were through, while others stood and fought. The rebel army fought the remaining men and took the city. 

Rebel Casualties: 4,000

Garrison Casualties: 1,500 (Lord Gaston Greenview and other lords were imprisoned)

 

The King’s Advancement: Aug 187- Jan 190

Tupmonian Rebels: 500 in the Western Fort (Commander - Maro of Mech)

500 in the Eastern Fort (Commander - Ser Andre Arozen)

3,000 in the Center Fort (Commander - Lord Aaron Cobb)

1,000 Reed Raiders (Commander - Raf of Reed)

2,000 Tupmonian Rebels (Commander - Lord Robert Tyke)

 

Tupmonians: 20,000 (Commander - Prince Joel Lonebar)

When King Alfan heard the city of Greenworth was under siege he sent his second son, Prince Joel Lonebar along with 20,000 men to relieve Greenworth of siege. With Horseshoe Road being held by the rebels, many of the king's generals advised to use alternate routes, while others argued that the rebels holding the road were no match for their army. The king commanded the army to take Horseshoe Road. Prince Joel and his host encountered the Western Fort. The Tupmonian army took the fort with negligible losses and continued their advancement. Along the road the Tupmonian host was constantly raided (mostly in their baggage train) by Reed clansmen, who were ordered to weaken the incoming army. The raids killed several hundreds of Tupmonains, destroyed supplies, and slowed down the army significantly  Nevertheless, the king's army reached the Center Fort, which was still manned by 3,000 rebels, led by Lord Cobb. The rebels held off the king's army, while raiders continued to attack the army's weak points. The two sides battled for years, until Prince Joel decided to take alternate roads, but when they did they were attacked by Lord Tyke and his army of 2,000 men along with the Reed raiders (Battle of Brownridge). The two sides constantly skirmished and the rebels made it almost impossible to cross the roads. Finally, in September 190 AF, Prince Joel broke through the rebel lines and defenses and were able to push through, despite the rebels still holding the Center Fort. The battles heavily weakened the Tupmonian army, but their numbers were still far more superior to the rebels. In November 190 AF, Prince Joel reached the Eastern Fort and took it with relative ease. After taking the fort he moved to retake Greenworth from Lord Fenn. 

Rebel Losses: 3,000

Tupmonian Losses: 7,500

 

Siege of Shrubhold : Jan 188- May 188: 

Garrison of Shrubhold (Commander - Lord Max Arozen): 80

Tupmonians (Commander -Lord Raymond Sommer): 10,000

Shortly after King Alfan sent an army to retake Greenworth, he sent another army of 10,000 men commanded by Lord Sommer. Their mission was to head south and take Shrubhold – the seat of House Arozen. And once it was taken they were to take Fennguard – the seat of House Fenn. Shrubhold held a small garrison, as most of their men were off at war. They were commanded by the old Lord Max Arozen, who once was a great fighter. Shrubhold had high and strong walls, and enough supplies to last eight months. Lord Sommer attempted to storm the castle, due to his highly superior numbers and impatience, but the garrison held off the attackers well, and Lord Sommer was forced to pull back his men. After three months of siege, the Tupmonians finally broke through the wall and killed the remaining fighters. Lord Arozen was taken prisoner, while his third son, Ser Arthur Arozen was killed in the fighting. The Tupmonians took Shrubhold and Lord Sommer left a garrison of 500 men before he moved to take Fennguard.

Rebel Casualties: 60 (Ser Arthur Arozen was killed in battle)

Tupmonian Casualties: 300


 

Siege of Fennguard : June 188- March 189

Garrison of Fennguard (Commander - Ser Mark Mandor): 300

Tupmonians (Commander - Lord Raymond Sommer): 9,000

After taking Shrubhold, Lord Sommer moved on Fennguard. He instantly began to build siege towers and a battering ram. Ser Mark Mandor, one of Lord Fenns most loyal knights, made necessary defenses to combat the Tupmonian army the best he could. After months and months of siege, Lord Sommer finally made it through the thick walls of Fennguard, but lost thousands in the process. Ser Mark Mandor died defending a retreat to save the last remaining son of Lord Fenn (Ser John Fenn). Ser John escaped with 50 men, while the rest of the garrison was killed or captured. Lady Carla Fenn and her eight year old daughter Rebecca Fenn were captured. The Tupmonians now held all of the rebel strongholds in the south. 

Rebel Casualties: 200 

Tupmonian Casualties: 2,300

 

The Second Siege of Greenworth: Feb 190- Feb 192 

Rebel Garrison (Commander - Lord Albert Fenn, Lord Jay Hammel): 8,000

Tupmonian Army (Commander - Prince Joel Lonebar): 12,500

The Second Greenworth Siege is known to be the one of the biggest and most bloody sieges in Tupmonias history. After The King’s Advancement, Prince Joel arrived at the rebel held city of Greenworth and laid siege to it. The siege lasted two years, and even though Lord Fenn lost the city, he still inflicted heavy damage on the Prince's army. On December 27, 191, Lord Fenn surprised the Tupmonians with an unexpected sally. The rebel sally took out a good portion of the besiegers, but after hours of battle Price Joel pushed the rebels back and sealed the gate to block re-entry into the city. Lord Fenn couldn't break the lines blocking the city gate. This led to him having to retreat into open land. Lord Fenn escaped with 4,000 men. Lord Jay Hammel now held the city with 1,000 men. After a few more months of siege Prince Joel took the city. Lord Hammel and his three sons died during the last stretch of the siege (Lord Hammels brother, who held Hammelhold became the new lord of House Hammel). Lord Gaston Greenview was freed along with the other lords and knights who were imprisoned after the first siege of Greenworth. 

Rebel Casualties: 4,000 (Lord Jay Hammel was killed in battle)

Tupmonian Casualties: 8,700

 

Mid War Summary: At this point in the war the loyalist army lost more than half of their men (it's estimated that they lost 22,000 men). On the other hand, the rebels had lost an estimated 12,300 men (mostly Golban clansmen), but were still losing the war because of their inferior numbers. Lord Sommer remained south with his 7,000 men to hold the taken castles. Prince Joel Lonebar held Greenworth with his army of 4,000 that once was an army of 20,000. Finally, King Alfan kept 6,000 men with him in Lonebar City. 

The rebel army was much more scattered and unorganized. Raf of Reed and his raiders were scattered all across central Tupmonia, Lord Fenn and his 4,000 men fled west after the Second Siege of Greenworth, Lord Cobb still held the Center Fort on Horseshoe Road with 2,000 men, Lord Tyke held his northern territory with 1,500 men, Ser John Fenn gathered the remaining men from the Siege of Shrubhold and Siege of Fennguard totaling around 100 men. 


 

The Southern Uprisings: 191- 203

After escaping the Siege of Fennguard, Ser John Fenn gathered the scattered survivors from the Siege of Shrubhold and Siege of Fennuard. He couldn't return north into friendlier territory because Lord Sommer now controlled the south and set a perimeter guarding its newly gained land. However, Ser John still had the love of his fathers people, so he and his men were hidden in villages and were given food and supplies to keep going. Several civilians are said to have even joined Ser John's band of men. After his group gained their strength back, the last remaining son of Lord Fenn led his band of 150 men and raided enemy patrols, outposts, and camps. For years Lord Sommer couldn't get his hands on Ser John Fenn who continued to slowly wreak havoc on the loyalist army. Many more joined the band of rebels over time. Finally, in November of 203, Ser John was finally defeated and the uprisings were destroyed. It’s estimated that Ser John Fenn and his group of a couple hundred men killed nearly 1,000 Tupmonian loyalists.

 

The War on Golbania: 194- 206

Svitoy, Yika, and Okontik Clans (Commander - High King Gallus): 3,000

Tupmonians (Commander - Lord William Otto, Lord Nicholos Plow): 4,000

At this point, with the rebel army down to 8,000 men, and the south securely held, King Alfan believed the war was pretty much won. In mid May 194, King Alfan sent 4,000 of his men from Lonebar City to conquer Golbania. Reed clansmen attempted to disrupt the Tupmonian army's advance by raiding, but it wasn't as effective as they hoped it would be. Raf of Reed was killed during a raid, which was a major blow to the Reed clan. Lord William Otto finally reached Golban lands in September 194 and instantly began to raid Golban villages and took minor strongholds. The three Golban clans that didn't join the Tupmonian rebels in the beginning of the war (Svitoy Clan, Yika Clan, and Okontik Clan) were now forced into the war to defend their lands. The two sides battled viciously for years with the Tupmonains holding a strong upper hand. Lord Plow destroyed what remained of the Okontik clan and took their land. Lord Otto destroyed the Yika clan in the famous Battle of the Burning River (204 AF), where several Yika ships were burned while trying to land men behind enemy lines. Hundreds of Yika clansmen were killed in the battle. On the other hand, the Svitoy clan did a good job pushing back the Tupmonians. Finally, in 206 AF the remaining Tupmonians retreated south, as they were needed desperately at that point. 

Golban Casualties: 2,000 (Salmo of Yika and Huntel of Okontik were killed in the war)

Tupmonian Casualties: 2,800 (Lord Nicholos Plow was killed in the war)

 

The Battle of Center Fort: June 26, 196

Rebels (Commander - Lord Aaron Cobb): 2,000

Tupmonians (Commander - Lord Agnar Arksworth): 4,000

With Lord Cobb still holding Horseshoe Road, it made transportation of supplies much harder and slower, especially with constant raids by the Reed clan. Prince Joel decided he needed the road in loyalist hands, so he commanded 2,000 of his garrison at Greenview and another 2,000 men that were under the command of Lord Sommer in the south to join forces and to take back the Center Fort. On June 26, 196 Lord Arksowrth stormed the Center Fort with 4,000 men. The battle went on for a day and a night. On the morning of June 27th Lord Arksworth and his men retreated in a crushing defeat. While retreating, Lord Arksworth was ambushed by hundreds of Reed raiders. Lord Arksworth was killed during the retreat and only several hundreds of his men were able to escape the battle alive. This battle ultimately turned the tide of the war in favor of the rebels. 

Rebel Casualties: 1,100

Tupmonian Casualties: 3,700 (Lord Agnar Arksworth was killed in battle)


 

Mid War Summary: Over the next five years of war both parties took a more passive approach. There weren't many major battles or large sieges, as both sides were weakening. Ser John Fenn continued his uprising in the south, the war in Golbania continued, but as for Tykes Rebellion itself, things started to die down. In the year 201, Lord Robert Tyke sent a letter of terms to King Alfan proposing an end to the war. In return for laying down his arms and returning taken territory, Lord Tyke demanded the release of his daughter and the lands that were taken from him given back. Lord Tyke also offered to pay the crown war reparations. However, King Alfan still believed he had a strong upper hand in the war. He refused Lord Tyke’s offer and sent him the heads of the three men that survived the fighting against the Kingsgaurd while attempting to free Sandra Tyke.

 

The Battle of Silent Swords: April 7, 203 

Rebels (Commander - Lord Robert Tyke): 5,000 + 1,000 mid-battle (Lord Aaron Cobb)

Tupmonians (Commander - Prince Joel Lonebar): 6,000

The Battle of Silent Swords is known to be one of the most, if not the most famous battle in Tupmonias history. After receiving King Alfan Lonebar’s response to his terms, Lord Tyke gathered his entire army, save the 1,200 men that held the Center Fort. 

King Alfan ordered his son to gather an army to meet the rebel force. Prince Joel gathered 1,500 men from his place in Greenworth, he received 1,000 men from Lonebar City, and another 3,500 men from Lord Sommers host in the south. The entire Tupmonian force met at Valleyhold, the seat of House Ashwin. Valleyhold was located in between the Center Fort on Horseshoe Road and Lord Tyke’s castle. The two sides met outside of Valleyhold on April 7, 203. The battle commenced with tight fighting along the hills. No side held an upper hand for a while, even after the successful rebel cavalry charge led by Draven of Loshad which smashed the advancing right flank of Lord Adam Moore, killing Lord Moore in the process. Finally, after hours of battle Lord Aaron Cobb descended on the battle with 1,000 men from his position in the Center Fort. Lord Cobb took the Tupmonian army in the rear, but even that push couldn't break the prince's army. Amongst the fighting Prince Joel Lonebar and Lord Robert Tyke met in the field. The two engaged in single combat. Lord Tyke was known to be a huge man (standing at around six feet and seven inches), while Prince Joel was much smaller, yet quicker. The prince delivered a devastating cut to the back of Lord Tyke’s thigh, but as he fell to his knees he brought a savage blow down with his greatsword onto Prince Joel's helm. The blow brought the prince down to the ground as well and both men fought. Lord Tyke eventually gained the upper hand and is said to have beaten the prince to death with his own helmet. When the prince's troops heard of his death many began to retreat, and the rebels won the battle.

Rebel Casualties: 3,000 (Lord Boros Niyazov and Ser Andre Arozen were killed in battle)

Tupmonian Casualties: 4,500 (Prince Joel Lonebar, Lord Adam Moore, and Lord Jory Ashwin were killed in battle)

 

The Battle of Pesok: November 12, 203 

Rebel Band (Commander - Ser John Fenn): 200 

Tupmonian Camp (Commander - Ser Brody Balfour): 400

After years of raiding and small skirmishes Ser John Fenn finally saw the end of his southern uprising on November 12, 203. Ser John planned to attack a larger enemy camp of 400 men, which would give his men better weapons, armor, and more food. Ser John planned to take the camp unaware, but his men were spotted and they had no choice but to fight. The Tupmonians outnumbered the rebel group two to one and were able to defeat them quickly. Ser John Fenn escaped, but barely. He took 2 arrows and a bad cut to his arm. The rebel band that had killed nearly 1,000 men through guerrilla warfare was finally put to an end. 

Rebel Casualties: 180

Tupmonian Casualties: 100

 

The Third Siege of Greenworth: January 204- March 204

Rebels (Commander - Lord Robert Tyke): 3,300

Tupmonian Garrison of Greenworth (Commander - Lord Gaston Greenview): 500

After winning the Battle of Silent Swords, Lord Tyke and his men rested at the Center Fort for several weeks. While his men regained their strength, Lord Tyke made plans to finish the war. His first priority was to retake the city of Greenworth once more before moving on Lonebar City, and once the two cities were taken everyone else would likely surrender. Lord Tyke left the Center Fort with a garrison of 200 men, now under the command of the wounded Ser John Fenn, who connected his band of men to Lord Tykes army after his loss at the Battle of Pesok. Lord Tyke laid siege on Greenworth in mid January. The city had already been through two sieges through the war and now it was taking its third. Lord Greenview surrendered the city after two months of siege, and even pledged his sword and men to the rebellion, seeing that the odds were slightly in favor of the rebels. Lord Tyke accepted Lord Greenviews fealty, but left the city under the command of Lord Aaron Cobb and 200 men of his own. 

0 casualties on both sides 

 

Battle of Eastern Fort: April 17, 204 

Rebels (Commander - Lord Robert Tyke): 3,100

Garrison of the Eastern Fort (Commander - Ser Finn Bode): 100

If Lord Tyke wanted to move on Lonebar City he had to take the Eastern Fort in order to use Horseshoe Road (the rebels technically held Horseshoe Road because of their position in the Center Fort, but they didn't hold the two smaller forts towards the ends of each side of the road; The Eastern and Western Fort). Lord Tyke attacked the small fort on April 17, 204. The battle lasted two hours and Lord Tyke took the fort, losing 100 men in the process. Lord Tyke left a garrison of 50 men, commanded by Ser Elliott Niyazov to hold the Eastern Fort 

Rebel Casualties: 100

Tupmonian Casualties: 70 (Ser Finn Bode was killed in battle)


 

The Battle of Western Fort: July 12, 204

Rebels (Commander - Lord Robert Tyke): 3,000

Garrison of the Western Fort (Commander - Ser Jackson Osbert): 100

With the Eastern Fort and Center Fort in rebel hands, all Lord Tyke had to do was take the Western Fort to reach Lonebar City. On July 12, 204 the rebel army came upon the Western Fort with about 3,000 men. The battle was short, as Ser Jackson Osbert retreated with half of his men within an hour of the battle, and allowed the rebels to take the fort. Lord Tyke left a garrison of 50 men under the command of his second son, Ser Brandon Tyke. 

Rebel Casualties: 30

Tupmonian Casualties: 50

 

Mid War Summary: At this point in the war the odds were practically even, but Lord Tyke had far more momentum behind him. Greenview was now in the hands of the rebels, along with Horseshoe Road, and most of northern Tupmonia. Lord Tyke had around 2,900 men left in his army (half Golbans and half Tupmonians), and several hundred men holding his castles and strongholds. On the other hand, the Tupmonian loyalists still held the south and west with 1,500 men under Lord Sommer. There were still about 1,000 men under Lord Otto fighting in Golbania, and King Alfan still held Lonebar City with 1,000 men. 

 

The Fall of Lonebar City: August 204- January 205

Rebels (Commander - Lord Robert Tyke): 2,900

Tupmonian Garrison (Commander - King Alfan Lonebar): 1,000

Even though the war officially ended in the year 211 AF, many historians mark The Fall of Lonebar City to be the true end of the war. On August 3, 204 Lord Tyke and his army laid siege on Lonebar City. On January 10, 205 the rebel army finally broke through the walls of the city and violent fighting commenced through the city streets. Later that day the rebel army broke through the king's castle walls within the city. Lord Tyke sent Ser Joseph Niyazov, Ser Roger Arozen, and Lord Albert Fenn to enter the castle with 100 men to rescue Sandra Tyke, while he remained to fight with his army. Lord Fenn, Ser Roger, and Ser Joseph were met by three of the Royal Kingsguard and about 70 men-at-arms. The two sides fought savagely within the castle walls. Lord Fenn and Ser Roger were slain by Ser Ronald Vayne in single combat, but Ser Joseph was able to defeat the Kingsguard and their men, killing two of the royal knights on his own. Ser Joseph continued with the ten men that remained and advanced into the throne room where he was met by three more Royal Kingsguard and the king himself seated upon his throne. Ser Joseph and his men engaged the Kingsguard, Ser Joseph's men were killed, but not without taking down two more of the Kingsguard. There only remained Ser Joseph and Ser Randyll Ryley, who was known to be one of the greatest fighters in Tupmonia, and the greatest of the ten Kingsguard. The two men fought a brutal duel that is well known today. Ser Joseph came on the offensive first, but to no avail. When Ser Joseph seemed to tire, Ser Randyll went heavily on the offensive, delivering blow after blow, while all Ser Joseph could do was parry desperately as Ser Randyll delivered swift and quick cuts with his sword. Ser Joseph suffered several cuts in the weak points of his armor and was sent to his knees. Ser Randyll delivered a blow with all his power behind it, Ser Joseph barely dodged the slash, and before Ser Randyll could lift his sword again, Ser Joseph stuck his sword in Ser Randylls throat, killing him. Before Ser Joseph was able to arrest the king, King Alfan stuck a dagger into his own heart so that he could not be used as leverage. Minutes later, Lord Tyke and his men entered the throne room. Unfortunately, Lord Tyke found his daughter dead in the king's dungeon (she was likely killed when news of the rebel breach reached the king). However, the king's heir, Prince Chadwick Lonebar was able to escape the city with his wife (Lady Anya Pine), his infant son (Prince Gabriel Lonebar), two Royal Kingsguard, and around twenty of his personal guards. Lord Tyke now held the capital of Tupmonia and King Alfan was dead, but as long as Prince Chadwick was alive, the war was yet to be won.

Rebel Casualties: 1,400 (Lord Albert Fenn was killed in battle)

Tupmonian Casualties: 900 (King Alfan Lonebar, and six Royal Kingsuard were killed in battle)

 

After Lonebar City fell and news of the king's death became widespread, many lords put down their swords and accepted Lord Tyke as their new king. Prince Chadwick (who was now technically the king) fled south to gather the men under Lord Sommer, and sent word to Lord Otto in Golbania to join his host. When King Chadwick assembled his army, he had about 2,000 men. 

 

The Lonebar Raids: 206-211

As more and more lords declared Lord Robert Tyke as their king, the less of a threat King Chadwick and his army became. In 206 raids broke out across rebel occupied lands, killing hundreds of civilians and soldiers. The raiding went on until February 8, 211 when King Chadwick was finally killed by Lord Tykes army in the Battle of Mor. However, King Chadwicks six year old son was able to escape with several men and he was never found. Nevertheless, the Battle of Mor marked the official end to the war. 

 

War Turnout: 

After the Battle of Mor, Lord Tyke was officially crowned king. The lords and knights that remained loyal to the Lonebar’s until the end were executed, while the ones who surrendered were pardoned. Ser John Fenn was raised to Lord Fenn after his fathers death, and was made into a powerful lord, along with Lord Aaron Cobb. 

The total death toll of the war is debated amongst historians, but most agree that it was around 90,000 (about 58,000 of them being soldiers). 

 

Total Rebel Casualties: 18,000

Tupmonia Wiki: Chapter 1, Part 6

 

The Three King War: 305 AF- 308 AF

The Kingsmen: 3,000 men

The Golban Clans: 6,300 men 

Tupmonia: 7,000 men 

 

The Three King War was a war mostly between The Kingsmen and the Golban Clans (the Tupmonians joined towards the end of the war). The Kingsmen were a large group of rebels that formed several years after Lord Robert Tyke won his rebellion and overthrew House Lonebar. They used the post-war disarray to their advantage – using it as a platform to gain support against the new monarch. The Kingsmen were initially led by Prince Chadwick Lonebar, who survived the war and went into hiding with his family. After Prince Chadwick died in battle, his son, Gabriel Lonebar took control of the group. The Kingsmen gained power over the Reconstruction Era of Tupmonia. Most of their civilian supporters were those that were displaced after Tykes Rebellion due to the deal that Lord Tyke made to give Golban land back after the war (see The Rebel-Golban Alliance in Tykes Rebellion). The Kingsmen's military support initially came from the few men that remained loyal to House Lonebar. House Otto and House Sommer were the main source of power. Even though those houses were denounced and their lords executed, many remained loyal to House Sommer and House Otto and pledged to avenge their houses and re-establish them. There were also several minor lords and knights who secretly remained loyal to House Lonebar, providing them with food, weapons, supplies, and shelter. The Kingsmen's main stronghold was the abandoned castle of Ikenhall, which was once the seat of House Ike (House Ike was destroyed in the Two Clan Revolt) 

When Gabriel Lonebar died in 286, his only son, Rob Lonebar became the leader of The Kingsmen. Rob Lonebar declared war on Golbania in 305 AF after gathering an estimated 3,000 fighting men. The Kingsmen's initial goal was to gain enough power and retake Tupmonia from House Tyke, but Tupmonia grew in power far faster than the Kingsmen did.  When Rob came to power he devised a new plan. It was to conquer the weaker and poorer Golbania and to make that land his own Kingdom, separate from Tupmonia. Golbania did have more than twice the men that The Kingsmen had, but after the rebellion and the famines following it, the Golban population was heavily affected, and their military was mostly made up of new recruits that were poorly trained, fed, and armored. 

Rob Lonebar invaded Golbania on May 6, 305. He entered Golbania with about 2,700 men at his back. Before the Golbans could make any strong retaliation, Rob and his army were already deep into Golbania, raiding and killing as they went. 

 

Battle of Palvo: June 7, 305

The Kingsmen (Commander - King Rob Lonebar): 2,700

Golbans (Commander - Polat of Loshad): 4,000

Once the Golbans were able to gather a force of 4,000 men, they advanced on the incoming enemy army. The two armies met outside of Palvo (a Golban village). Rob knew he had less men, so he ordered a cavalry charge in the center of the Golban line to split them. The charge successfully split the Golban army into two, which allowed Rob to fight two smaller forces rather than one large one. The Golbans retreated relatively quickly, and Rob was able to continue his advancement. 

Kingsmen Casualties: 300 

Golban Casualties: 1,700

 

Battle of the Camps: February 2, 306

The Kingsmen (Commander - King Rob Lonebar): 2,100

Golbans (Commander - Kyfon of Kapio): 900

Rob Lonebar continued to take minor strongholds and villages. In mid January, Rob sent a diversion north to make the Golbans think they were advancing into Mech territory, when in reality they were moving on Kapio lands. Rob and his 2,100 men came upon a Kapio camp of 900 men and attacked them in the night. The clansmen were slaughtered before most of them were able to pick up their weapons. Many clansmen fled in confusion, and the battle was quickly won by the Kingsmen. 

Kingsmen Casualties: 70

Golban Casualties: 600

 

Battle of Razdil: Jan 30, 306

The Kingsmen (Commander - Ser Landry Linston): 200

Golbans (Commander - Mifon of Mech): 1,000

The diversion that Rob Lonebar sent into Mech territory came upon the 1,300 men that anticipated their attack. The diversion was defeated quickly, but the Golban host only realized it was a diversion until after the battle, and it was too late. 

Kingsmen Casualties: 130 (Ser Landry Linston was killed in battle)

Golban Casualties: 60

 

Chanit Burning: June 13, 306 

The Kingsmen (Commander - King Rob Lonebar): 2,000

Golbans (Commander - Kyfon of Kapio): 350

Rob advanced further into Kapio lands and he looked to take their stronghold where the remainder of their army was. His plan was to burn down the walls of the wooden stronghold and to destroy what was left of the garrison. Although it took the lives of several men to burn down the walls, they burned nevertheless. Rob's army fought the Golban garrison and defeated the worn out army relatively easily. Destroying the Kapio stronghold cemented Rob as the victor in Kapio territory, and it allowed him to continue his conquest. 

Kingsmen Casualties: 150

Golban Casualties: 300 (Kyfon of Kapio was killed in battle) 

 

August, 306: 

The Kingsmen reinforced at the Kapio Luchnik border with the 50 men that escaped the Battle of Razdil and a fresh 150 men from the Kingsmen stronghold in Tupmonia (Ikenhall). The Kingsmen army now had around 2,000 men in their army again, while Rob’s garrison at Ikenhall had around 150 men. 

 

Battle of Iron Rain: November 21, 306 

The Kingsmen (Commander - King Rob Lonebar): 2,000

Golbans (Commander - Leyton of Luchnik): 300

When the Kingsmen entered Luchnik territory they expected solid pushback from the infamous Luchnik archers, but while passing through the hills, Rob's army was ambushed by 300 Luchnik men. Hundreds of arrows rained down on the Kingsmen army, but Rob expected an attack and was able to recover his army quickly. Rob pursued the Luchnik archers, capturing or killing most of them. Rob expected a larger force, but the rest of the Luchnik men were gathering in Loshad territory. Leyton of Luchnik was able to escape.

Kingsmen Casualties: 300

Golban Casualties: 200

 

Mid War Summary: 

At this point The Kingsmen had taken all of Kapio and Luchnik territory, along with some of Mech territory in a span of a year and a half. Rob's army consisted of around 1,700 men at this point, and he also had 150 men at Ikenhall. On the other hand, the Golbans had around 3,300 men left. Rob was winning the war but he was still outnumbered. 

 

Feb, 307:

Rob Lonebar received several reports from his scouts claiming that a Golban army was uniting deep into Loshad territory (most of the army consisted of untouched Loshad troops). Rob decided that if he could defeat that army, conquering the rest of Golbania would be much easier. Rob commanded 50 more men from his garrison in Ikenhall to join his host, as every man would be needed in the upcoming battle. Rob remained in the Luchnik stronghold for weeks as he waited for his 50 men to join him. During that time he allowed his men to rest while he made battle plans and allowed the enemy to come to him. 

 

The Battle of Golbania: April 17, 307 

The Kingsmen (Commander - King Rob Lonebar): 1,800 

Golbans (Commander - High King Sparen): 3,000

On April 17, 307 the two armies met by the Red River. Rob Lonebar had an estimated 500 cavalry. He split the 500 cavalry men into three groups. The first group consisted of around 200 cavalry men, their job was to charge the enemy line and disrupt the frontlines. The second and third waves of cavalry exploited the disruption and broke through the enemy lines. The two armies clashed, but the vanguard of the Golban army was in disarray. The Kingsmen held a strong upper hand and were on track to winning this pivotal battle. However, Polat of Loshad and his cavalrymen hit the left flank of the Kingsmen and were able to overcome it and hit the Kingsmen in the rear. Most of Polats men died doing this, but they inflicted heavy casualties on the Kingsmen and many Kingsemn scattered. Rob Lonebar was able to secure a retreat, but the Golbans were in hot pursuit. 300 fresh Golban troops came from the east to trap the retreat. The Kingsmen were forced to stand and fight. Rob and his men were able to cut through the trap and organized a second retreat. Rob was able to escape with 500 men, while the rest were killed, captured, or scattered. 

Kingsmen Casualties: 1,200 (Lord Andrew Otto was killed in battle)

Golban Casualties: 2,000 (Polat of Loshad was killed in battle)

 

June, 307: 

The Kingsmen were forced to retreat back to their castle in northern Tupmonia because of the Golbans on their tail. However, the Golbans didn't cross the Tupmonian border (they didn't want to start a war with Tupmonia). About 50 Kingsmen died during the retreat back into Tupmonia and most of the land Rob Lonebar conquered was taken back. A couple of weeks after Rob and his main host retreated back to Ikenhall, a ragged host of about 150 Kingsmen men arrived at the gates. The group consisted of men who were scattered during the battle, wounded men, and the small raiding parties that Rob dispatched before the battle (the raiders had no part in the battle). They were led by Ser Radny Rockwill. Ser Randy was the leader of a raiding party that was dispatched a few months before the Battle of Golbania. Ser Randy had about 20 men under his command and was ordered to raid Mech villages. After the Battle of Golbania many of the men that scattered seeked out Ser Randy and his men. Ser Randy gathered the men and returned to the battlefield where he found several more wounded men. He had around 300 men with him when he departed for Ikenhall, but he only had half of those men when he reached the castle. Many died of their wounds, sickness, starvation, and attacks by Golbans. Rob now had a total of 700 men remaining, but was still confident in his ability to take Golbania, as he knew the Golbans didn't have many men either (about 1,200)

December 19, 307:

After months of zero retaliation by the Kingsmen, the Golbans believed that the Kingsmen had fully lost the war and that they were safe. However, during the months following the Battle of Golbania, Rob Lonebar was letting his men heal and seeked out new fighters. In early December Rob hired the Red Spears. The Red Spears were a mercenary group that consisted of about 500 fighters. They had a reputation of being fearless and loyal. Rob offered the leader of the Red Spears a lordship and lands when the war was won, along with most of the gold he had left. Carter Grennwill, the leader of the Red Spears, agreed and joined The Kingsmen. Rob invaded Golbania again on December 19 with 1,000 men at his back. He raided and killed his way through Golbania. 

 

Lonebars Last Stand: March 24, 308

The Kingsmen (Commander - King Rob Lonebar): 800

Golbans (Commander - High King Sparen): 1,000

Tupmonians (Commander - Prince Mason Tyke): 7,000

After a few months of raiding and small skirmishes with Golban forces, The Kingsmen finally encountered a real Golban host of 1,000 men. The two armies battled and Rob Lonabar and his men decimated the Golban army. However, just as the Golbans began to retreat, 7,000 Tupmonians arrived at the battle field. Rob commanded his men to retreat, but the Tupmonian army was already on them before they could escape. Rob and his remaining men fought valiantly, but were defeated within an hour. Rob Lonebar was captured and the rest of his men were killed. 

Kingsmen Casualties: 750 (Carter Greenwill was killed in battle) 

Golban Casualties: 800

Tupmonian Casualties: 100

 

The Siege of Ikenhall: May 18- June 27, 308

The Kingsmen Garrison (Commander - Lord Joshua Sommer): 200

Tupmonians (Commander - Prince Mason Tyke): 7,000

When Rob Lonebar was captured, the Tupmonian host returned to Tupmonia to take the castle where the remaining Kingsmen were staying at (Ikenhall). The garrison of 200 Kingsmen were under the command of Lord Joshua Sommer. The siege lasted just over a month before the Kingsmen finally surrendered on June 27, 308. The officers of The Kingsmen were executed there and then. Rob Lonebar and Lord Joshua Sommer were taken back to the capital and were publicly executed. This finally ended the war and The Kingsmen for good.

Kingsmen Casualties: 50 (Lord Sommer and King Rob were executed)

Tupmonian Casualties: 0

 

War Turnout: 

The war marked the end of House Lonebar, House Sommer, and House Otto for good. It also marked the extinction of the Luchnik and Kapio clans. The Golban army was heavily weakened and a lot of their land was war torn. 

 

Kingsmen Casualties: 3,200 soldiers 

Notable Deaths: King Rob Lonebar, Lord Joshua Sommer, Lord Andrew Otto, Carter Greenwill, Ser Randy Rockwill, Ser Landry Linston 

 

Golban Casualties: 5,900 soldiers + 2,000 civilians

Viggos Conquest: 564 AF- 577 AF

Loshad Clan: 10,000 men 

Golban Clans: 25,000 men

Viggos Conquest was a civil war between the Golban Clans of Golbania. The nation that once consisted of twelve strong clans were now a nation of four war torn clans. Tykes Rebellion, The Three King War, and the famines following the wars cripplied the Golban population, and the Golbans still felt the effects of them 250 years later. The war was fought between the Loshad clan and the other three clans (Svitoy clan, Mech clan, and Reed clan). Conflict started centuries before the actual war broke out. After The Three King War (305- 308), Tupmonia took control of the Luchnik and Kapio lands (the two clans went extinct after the war) and the four clans were left to figure out land distribution amongst themselves. Tensions heavily grew and small skirmishes broke out between the clans in 320 AF. Tupmonia was forced to step in. After long negotiations Tupmonia forcefully set borders for each of the clans. Tupmonia threatened to destroy the Svitoy clan (the rulers of Golbania) if they were to disobey. The clans would have declared war on Tupmonia, but they simply didn't have enough manpower. The Loshad clan was given about 40% of Golbania because of their ongoing friendship with the Tupmonians after Tykes Rebellion. The other three clans shared the other 60%. Land inequity and the division of necessities became a huge issue in Golbania for centuries. Many blamed the Loshad clan because of their wealth and holdings. Tensions heavily resurfaced in 562 after the Tupmonians and the Loshad clan made a trade deal of weapons and armor (this was significant because it was the first time the Golban clans and the Tupmonians traded since the Expansion Era, from 230 BF- 186 AF). The Svitoy clan blamed the Loshads for putting their own interests before Golbanias and declared them as traitors to the Golban crown. The Reed and Mech clans joined the Svitoy clan against the Loshad. The two sides began to muster their armies in preparation for war. Viggo of Loshad officially declared war on the other three clans on July 13, 564 AF. The three Golban clans under High King Goro had a combined 25,000 fighting men (13,000 Svitoy clansmen, 9,000 Mech clansmen, and 3,000 Reed clansmen). On the other hand, the Loshad clan had only 10,000 men, but the Loshad clan were known to be the elite fighters in the Golban military. Additionally, the Loshad clan was far richer than the other three clans.

Viggo and the Loshad clan decided to take the Reed territory first because it was the smallest of the clans in terms of territory and manpower. Viggo quickly advanced into Reed territory. The Reeds were a raiding clan and were not accustomed to pitched battles. The Reed clansmen used guerrilla warfare on Viggos' army, but they had far fewer men than the Loshad did, so their tactics weren’t as effective as they hoped. 

 

Siege of Ravon: Oct 564- Jan 565

Loshad Clan (Commander - Viggo of Loshad): 9,000 

Reed Clan (Commander - Rafo): 300

After advancing quickly through Reed territory, Viggo finally reached Ravon, the Reed stronghold. Calling it a stronghold is an overstatement. The Reed lived in small camps along their lands and never really had permanent villages or towns. The Reed stronghold was a petty fort with short wooden walls, and a single wooden tower house inside. Viggo burned down the fort, killed the men who fought, and captured the men who surrendered. This marked the full control of Reed territory by Viggo. 

Loshad Casualties: 100

Reed Casualties: 200

Soon after taking Ravon, Viggo received news that an army of 20,000 men was amassing along the Loshad-Svitoy border. It’s believed that the Svitoy army of 20,000 men originally planned to take Loshad lands before Viggo made his move, but it was too late and Viggo had already advanced into Reed lands. This resulted in High King Goro abandoning his plan to take Loshad lands and to move south to prevent Viggo from taking the Reed lands. With this news Viggo knew that the Mech territory was poorly manned and that he could take it before Goros' army could reach him. 

 

Battle of Mafc: Feb 5, 565 

Loshad Clan (Commander - Viggo of Loshad): 9,000

Mech Camp (Commander - Morllo): 500

When the Loshad clan entered Mech territory they encountered a camp that was supposed to be guarding the border. Instead, nearly the entire camp was drunk and celebrating after they heard that High King Goros' army was coming down on Viggos' army (most assumed that Viggo would retreat back into Loshad territory to defend his lands, but instead he continued his advancement). Viggo and his army slaughtered the camp and were able to advance through Mech land unnoticed. 

Loshad Casualties: 20

Mech Casualties: 450
 

Battle of Golan Hill: March 11, 565 

Loshad Clan (Commander - Viggo of Loshad): 9,000

Golbans (Commander - Marken of Mech): 7,000

The men who managed to escape the slaughter at the Battle of Mafc sent word to High King Goros' army, telling them that Viggo was advancing into Mech territory. Goro knew his army was too large to move at a pace fast enough to reach Viggo, so he sent 7,000 men from his host of 20,000 to intercept the Loshad army from taking Mech lands. If Viggo did take Mech territory the Svitoy clan would be surrounded by Loshad occupied territory and he would have to fight the war on two fronts. Viggo and his army were only a few days from reaching Mandorayl, the Mechs main stronghold. Viggo received reports from his outriders of an enemy army incoming. Viggo formed ranks amongst his men and prepared for battle. The two armies engaged in brutal fighting, but the Loshads cavalry was far too powerful for the enemy lines. Marken of Mech retreated quickly to minimize losses when he saw his lines breaking. The Loshad won the battle and were able to advance further. 

Loshad Casualties: 1,000

Golban Casualties: 4,000

 

Siege of Mandorayl: March 15- July 24, 565 

Loshad Clan (Commander - Viggo of Loshad): 8,000

Garrison of Mandorayl (Commander - Yaren of Mech): 1,500

Viggo reached Mandorayl four days after the Battle of Golan Hill. Mandorayl was a much stronger fortress compared to the Reed stronghold of Ravon. Mandorayl had tall stone walls and three large tower houses inside. The castle was large enough to garrison thousands of men. Viggo was facing a garrison of 1,500 fresh Mech fighters, whereas his men had just survived a major battle. The siege lasted just over five months. Finally, on July 23 the Loshad were able to finally make it over the walls using siege engines and a battering ram. The Loshad officially took the castle in the early morning of July 24. 

Loshad Casualties: 2,500

Mech Casualties: 1,300 (Yarlen of Mech was killed in battle)

 

Battle of Ravon: May 23, 565

Loshad Clan (Commander - Lyson Crangar): 500 

Golban Clans (Commander - Marken of Mech): 3,000

High King Goro encamped his army of 13,000 men on the Reed-Mech border. Before he could move to destroy Viggo (who was besieging Mandorayl at this time), Goro had to retake the Reed and Mech land that Viggo had taken to avoid an attack from his rear. Instead of using his fresh army, Goro decided to use the 3,000 men that remained after their loss at the Battle of Golan Hill. Goro got word to Marken of Mech and commanded him to return south to take Reed territory back from the Loshad clan. 

The 500 men that Viggo left to hold Reed territory mostly remained in the pitiful stronghold of Ravon. Marken of Mech came down upon the Loshad clansmen with 3,000 men, but Lyson knew of their approach and prepared accordingly. The 3,000 men under Marken were forced to make it past muddy grounds and several obstacles. This heavily slowed down the incoming army and gave Lyson a good defensive position. However, Marken had far too many men for the Loshad and were able to eventually overcome Lyson and his men. Marken took his victory, but at a major cost. 

Loshad Casualties: 400 (Lyson Crangar was killed in battle)

Golban Casualties: 2,000

Mid War Summary: 

Viggo now held his own land and Mech territory. He nearly had the entirety of Golbania in his hands, but he lost Reed territory during his siege to take Mech lands. After the Battle of Ravon, High King Goro heard that Mech territory was lost and believed that Viggo planned to move of Svitoy territory next. High King Goro sent 3,000 men into Loshad territory, 5,000 men into Mech territory, and he took 5,000 men of his own to defend Svitoy territory. His plan was to bait Viggo into splitting up his army, and it worked. When Viggo heard Loshad territory was being invaded he gathered 4,000 men and marched back to his own lands. Viggo left 1,000 men to hold Mandorayl and Mech territory, and sent another 500 men to retake Reed lands once more. When High King Goro received reports that Viggo had taken most of his men to defend Loshad territory, he sent 5,000 men to take back Mech lands. Viggo, who seemed to have the war in his grasp, quickly lost it within months.

 

Second Siege of Mandorayl: February 19- June 22, 566 

Loshad Clan (Commander - Farzaz of Loshad): 1,000

Golban Clans (Commander - High Prince Retfor): 5,000

When Viggo took the bait and took most of his men back west to defend his lands, High King Goro sent his son with 5,000 men to retake Mech territory. Viggo only left 1,000 men to defend his newly gained territory however. Prince Retfor laid siege to Mandorayl on February 19, 566. The siege lasted about four months. The Golban prince took the castle, but he did a bad job trapping the Loshad retreat. Farzaz and 400 Loshad clansmen were able to escape. 

Loshad Casualties: 500

Golban Casualties: 2,000

 

Battle of Lager: August 11, 566 

Loshad Clan (Commander - Farzaz of Loshad): 200 

Golban Clan (Commander - High Prince Retfor): 500 (outer wall camp) + 2,200 (garrison within the castle)

After Farzaz of Loshad lost Mandorayl, he was constantly chased by Reed and Svitoy clansmen. He engaged in small skirmishes over the span of several months, resulting in the loss of 200 more of his men. Farzaz didnt have nearly enough men to ratake Mandorayl, but he had enough to attack the encamped men outside of the castle (Mandorayl didn't have enough room to hold all of Retfors men, so some had to encamp themselves outside of the castle). On August 11, Farzaz attacked the camp in the night. The Loshad were able to cut through hundreds of the prince's men before men started pouring out of the castle gates. Farzaz was able to escape with only dozens of men. 

Loshad Casualties: 120

Golban Casualties: 400

 

The Muddy Skirmishes: 566-571

Loshad Clan (Commander - Tybalt Treftor) 500

Golban Clan (Commander - Marken of Mech): 1,000

The Muddy Skirmishes were a series of bloody battles for the small Reed territory. While Farzaz was defending Mech territory and Viggo was defending Loshad territory, Tybalt was tasked with retaking Reed territory with 500 men. The two sides fought dozens of small battles between each other for just over five years. Marken of Mech held the territory relatively well, but he was killed in the Battle of Raf in 570. When Marken was killed, Crast Keel took control of the army. Crast didn't do a good job holding Reed territory against Tybalt. Tybalt finally defeated the enemy army for good on October 15, 571, in the Battle of Grayz. Crast Keel was killed in the battle and so were the rest of his men. This marked the end of the wars for Reed territory. 

Loshad Casualties: 350

Golban Casualties: 900 (Marken of Mech and Crast Keel were killed in battle)

 

Battle of Oblican: September 24, 565

Loshad Clan (Commanders - Viggo and Villo of Loshad): 4,000 + 500 (garrison)

Golban Clans (Commander - Syl of Svitoy): 3,000

Viggo took the bait and returned to Loshad territory with the bulk of his force, leaving his taken lands poorly defended. When Viggo arrived in his lands he found the small Loshad city under siege. Villo of Loshad, Viggos brother, was commanded to hold the city with 500 men. Syl of Svitoy saw Viggos incoming army and only had two choices: retreat or fight. Syl decided to stand and fight with the chance of potentially ending the war. However, Syl had a city on one side of him and an army on the other. Syl was defeated quickly, but he was able to escape with a lot of his men.

Loshad Casualties: 300

Golban Casualties: 1,000

 

Mid War Summary: 

Viggo defended his territory against Syl and his men for years. During that time, Farzaz of Loshad still attempted to do whatever he could to weaken the Golban force in Mech territory, Tyablt Treftor fought The Muddy Skirmishes, and High King Goro remained comfortably in his own lands with around 8,000 men. 
 

Battle of Riznya: August 26, 574

Loshad Clan (Commander - Viggo of Loshad): 2,700

Golban Clans (Commander - Syl of Svitoy): 1,200

After nearly nine years of a cat and mouse game between Viggo and Syl, Viggo finally destroyed Syl in the Battle of Riznya. Viggo made quick work of the army, as he had superior numbers, skill, and Syls army was half starved. Syl was killed amongst the fighting. Viggo finally was able to continue his conquest, but now his men were outnumbered five to one. 

Loshad Casualties: 700

Golban Casualties: 1,100 (Syl of Svitoy was killed in battle)

Viggo assembled Farzaz and Tybalt along with their remaining men. They joined in northern Reed territory. Farzaz only had about 50 men in his party at that point. On the other hand, Tybalt had around 150 men left. Viggos full army totalled around 2,200 men. He knew he couldn't move on Svitoy lands, as he had nowhere near the numbers needed to defeat High King Goro head on. Instead, Viggo decided to retake Mech territory again from High Prince Retfor and his 2,000 men. 

Viggo commanded Tybalt Treftor and 500 men to travel to the Cherep Hills (a tough terrain to cross with horses and lots of men) and to cut off the eastern border between the Svitoy and Mech lands. Once Tybalt reached the Cherep Hills, Viggo commanded Farzaz of Loshad and 100 men to go burn and kill the crops and livestock that High Prince Retfor and his men were living off of in Mech territory. Viggo left 100 men to hold Reed territory, while he took his remaining 1,500 men and guarded the southern border. 

 

Black Field Raids: December 21, 574- January 19, 575

Loshad Raiders (Commander - Farzaz of Loshad): 100

Golban Clans (Commander - High Prince Retfor): 2,000

Farzaz entered Mech lands with 100 men. His only goal was to burn crop land and kill livestock. The Loshad raiders got into several small skirmishes with the men guarding the farmland and livestock, but there weren't enough guards to stop Farzaz. The toughest lands to burn were the ones right outside the wall of Mandorayl, where Prince Retfors army was held up. Farzaz of Loshad was killed on January 17, 575 during a raid. However, he successfully destroyed most of the prince's food supply.

Loshad Casualties: 70 (Farzaz of Loshad was killed in battle)

Golban Casualties: 150 

 

Battle of Cherep Hills: May 1, 575 

Loshad Clan (Commander - Tybalt Treftor): 500

Golban Clans (Commander - Atyur Wopun): 2,000

High Prince Retfor and his men in Mech lands were running low on their food supply after the Black Field Raids. High King Goro couldn’t send men through the south side of the border because Viggo and his main force were encamped on the Reed-Svitoy border where the land was terribly muddy during the spring months, additionally it would be an uphill battle for the king. It would mean the death of any army thrown at Viggo. On the other hand, Tybalt and his men guarded the eastern border between Mech and Svitoy lands, and crossing through the Cherep Hills would be impossible with Tybalt there to oppose them. High King Goro had a choice: either send his entire army to take out Viggo and risk the entire war, while also leaving his lands unguarded; send men into the tough terrain of the Cherep Hills to relieve the eatern border of Tybalt and his men; or do nothing and let his son and 2,000 of his men starve to death. 

High King Goro wouldn't let his men in Mech territory starve to death, but at the same time he couldn’t take on Viggos army along the southern border. King Goro decided to send an army of 2,000 men to take on Tybalt at the Cherep Hills. The Golban King gave the command to a lesser officer (Aytur Wopun), knowing this attack would most likely end in his defeat. Aytur reached the hills on May 1. He was instantly attacked by hundreds of Loshad men hiding in the rocky hills. Aytur and his men barely made it through half of the hills before their army was completely demolished and they were forced to retreat. Aytur died in the battle, but a couple hundred of his men were able to escape. After this crushing defeat High King Goro decided he couldn't save the men holding Mech lands. 

Loshad Casualties: 100

Golban Casualties: 1,800 (Aytur Wopun was killed in battle)

 

The Suicide Cross: June 16, 575 

Loshad Clan (Commander - Tybalt Treftor): 400

Golban Clans (Commander - High Prince Retfor): 1,000

High Prince Retfor knew he was alone when he heard of the loss at the Battle of Cherep Hills. He could either starve or fight while he still could. The only way out of Mech lands was through the Cherep Hills. Prince Retfor had already lost 800 men to starvation and disease, and he could not lose anymore. On June 5 he gathered the 1,000 men that could still fight and marched them to the hills. High Prince Retfor knew it was a suicide mission, but it was better to die with a sword in hand rather than dieing of starvation. Price Retfor reached the hills on June 16. He was killed along with all of his men in the battle.

Loshad Casualties: 50 

Golban Casualties: 1,000 (High Prince Retfor was killed in battle) 

 

The Mech Takeover: August 11, 575

Loshad Clan (Commander - Opul Lupo): 300

When Viggo heard that High Prince Retfor died trying to cross the Cherep Hills he knew the Mech lands were his to take. Viggo commanded Opul Lupo to gather 300 men and secure Mech territory. When Opul arrived at Mandorayl he found the 200 sick men that Prince Retfor left at the castle dead. Only a few dozen survived. Opul put them to death and secured Mech lands. Viggo retook Mech territory and shortened the king's army by 4,000 men, while only losing 200 men of his own. Viggo now held his Loshad lands, along with Reed and Mech lands. All he had to do was defeat the Svitoy clan. 

 

Mid War Summary: 

Viggo of Loshad now held all of Golbania, excluding Svitoy lands. The Reed and Mech clans were destroyed. High King Goro had about 6,000 men remaining in his army, while Viggo only had about 2,000 men left. Viggo left 100 men to hold his newly gained Reed and Mech lands while he advanced to take Svitoy lands. High King Goro remained in his city with his 6,000 men. 

 

The Village Battles: January- March, 576

Loshad Clan (Commander - Viggo of Loshad): 1,900

Svitoy Clan (Commander - High King Goro): 100’s-1,000’s

Viggo knew he couldn’t lay siege on the Svitoy city, as he didn't have the manpower for it. He also couldn't take on High King Goro’s army head on. Viggo used the tactic that was used on him to retake the lands he took in the beginning of the war. Viggo split up his men into bands of a few hundred men and sent them raiding villages and farms. Even though King Goro knew it was a trap, he wouldn't let his people be killed defenseless. Goro sent men to retaliate just as Viggo planned. Small skirmishes ensued across Svitoy lands. King Goro’s men were no match for the Loshad raiders. Goro couldn't risk sending more men. 

Loshad Casualties: 200

Svitoy Casualties: 2,000 

Siege of Svitoy Grod: April 2- September 24, 576

Loshad Clan (Commander - Viggo of Loshad): 1,700 

Svitoy Clan (Commander - High King Goro): 4,000

When Viggo saw that the king was no longer sending men to defend his villages he only had two choices: either wait for Goros larger army to come down and crush him, or to lay siege on Svitoy Grod (the capital city of Golbania). Viggo chose the latter. He laid siege to the city on April 2, 576. High King Goro had enough provisions for his army for about half a year, but the common folk of the city were not so lucky. The siege was slow and boring for the first few months, but the people of the city slowly started to feel the lack of food. King Goro saw his city falling apart slowly, so he decided to act. On July 30 High King Goro decided to surprise the Loshad with a sally. Goro led the charge with 3,000 men at his back, but poor coordination led to the king's failure. The Loshad were outnumbered two to one, but their skill in the open field proved more useful than numbers. Viggo pushed King Goro back into the walls of Svitoy Grod and shortened the Svitoy army by 1,500 men. On the other hand, Viggo lost about 700 men of his own. The morale and hope of the king's men was lost, and the people of the city were close to starving. On September 16, 576, thousands of Golban civilians raided the kings keep in the center of the city and about 1,000 soldiers joined the coup. Violent fighting ensued throughout the city. About 1,500 men remained loyal to the king, but it wasn't enough to stop the hordes of civilians and his own soldiers. Amongst the chaos the city gates were opened and the Loshad were let in. However, High King Goro was killed by one of his own men before Viggo could reach him. The king's keep was surrendered when Viggo arrived. The city and the rest of Svitoy territory was his. 

Loshad Casualties: 1,000

Svitoy Casualties: 3,500 (High King Goro was killed in battle)

The Siege of Svitoy Grod marked the end of major fighting in the war. Some stragglers still remained loyal to the Svitoy clan, but there weren't enough to impose a major threat to Viggo. The remainder of the Svitoy clan negotiated terms with the Loshad for about four months. The Svitoy proposed that Viggo keep all the lands he took (besides the Svitoy lands) and the two clans put war behind them. On the other hand, Viggo offered to give the Svitoy clan their own land back, along with some of the Mech lands, on the condition that the Svitoy clan gave their rulership of Golbania to the Loshad clan. If the Svitoy refused, he would crush them. The Svitoy finally agreed to Viggos terms on January 7, 577. Viggo was crowned the new king of Golbania and the war officially ended. Golbania was now even smaller than before, consisting of only two clans, where once there were twelve.
