The Hawkcliff Treaty

A treaty uniting the Hawkcliff Citadel with the Kingdom of Archana

Introduction


"We join for a realm for which we fight together, for which we share the same fate."
— The Hawkcliff Treaty

Since the formation of the new settlements post-Calamity, the denizens of the Hawkcliff Citadel would rather stay isolated from other communities, even in trade and military disputes. But with the threat of the Artalgnian Empire, the dwarves saw the benefits of forming alliances and joined with the Kingdom of Archana.

Purpose

King Charles Maine sought to unite the land under a single flag to make everyone stronger. While most of the other communities were already under the agreement, it was expected that the people of the Hawkcliff Citadel wouldn't be easily persuaded. The treaty was made especially for this purpose, a special arrangement that would highly benefit both parties.

Document Structure

Caveats

The treaty is valid indefinitely, as long as both parties remain true to their part of the deal. As soon as one of them retract from their responsibilities, the other has the right to do so as well immediately, ending the treaty.

Publication Status

The treaty is on public display in the Citadel, right after the main gates. There are no concerns about its safety and preservation, since it is a stone tablet that can be molded by Earth magic. Due to its simple and straightforward nature, any modifications to it could be easily identified and rectified, as well as any damage repaired.

Historical Details

Background

Once King Charles founded the Kingdom of Archana right after the independence of the land was reclaimed from Artalgne, and wanted to unite every people under his flag to make them stronger against future attacks. The Hawkcliff provided a great view of the Archan Heartland, the Blackbourne Bay, and the Hub Lands, not to mention that the dwarves from the Citadel were exceptional fighters - everything that Archana needed.

Public Reaction

The signing of the treaty brought new hope for both peoples, bringing them together for the first time. To celebrate the event, the Unification Fair took place right below the Hawk Cliff, so that the Archani didn't need to make the trip all the way up the mountain.

Legacy

The Unification Fair became an annual event, a week-long celebration for their unity and the New Year, from December 29th to January 4th. Due to the convenience of the location as a trading post between the Citadel and the rest of Archana, the small town Moyen grew beyond the fair, as a midpoint for trading, since the trip is hard and dangerous.
