The Dune of fate

A long time ago there were two tribes of giants fighting for the reign in a country called Arbil.
Their bloody battle lasted for over 300 years until they realized that their population was decreasing very fast because of the heavy casualties in the battles.
So the two leaders tried to make piece, an instable piece.
As a symbol for that they buried a large and precious sword into the sand of the desert.
It is said that the peace will last as long as the sword stays buried.

Now we are in year 1180 in the middle of the crusades and there are no more giants in Arbil because they died out.
The peace still remains in the country which is divided into seven earldoms now.¹
The story of the giants’ battles had turned into a popular fairy-tale parents like to tell their children.
Some crazy archaeologists believed in the story and tried to find the legendary sword.
The people only laughed at them and thought the hot sun burnt their brains.

But only one year later an expedition team of five men found dug out a piece of a gigantic blade.
“That must be the giant’s sword!” they said.
The seven earls argued who has the right to own it.
Some said it should stay in the sand other ones wanted to dig it and so a big quarrel arose.
Will the legend become true and the sword will be the reason for a new war coming over the country?

You are one of the seven Lords with your own little earldom.
It is your decision if you want to keep the peace or go into war and throw your land into war.
Let us hope that your decision is not a bad one…

Yeah khloklop i know cause of that i put some rersources next to the keeps
Lord_of_Hell Wow, nice sword you have there. Hard to obtain a symetric thing from resources. How much did it take to make it?

Also, a very original idea :D

Oh 2-3 days up to 6 hours but i it took me more time to make the landsape around the sword (and my Crusader letter-Lord in the Storyfile^^)
Lord_of_Hell Nice, well done! Advice: if you put the story in the description it would give more appeal to the map ;)
