The Zvaarian Revolt

Ah yes, The Zvaarian Revolt. What a bloody mess that was. Lead by Illunpyuh, the revolting population stormed the current kings castle and reformed the old and fake Zvaarian Testimony.
— All knowing Lohrk

The Conflict

Prelude

Sir Illunpyuh Zvaaria, as the tenth Zvaarian King was to inherit the crown and live by The Zvaarian Testimony just like every other heir of the throne before him. When he, however, got access to the kings private archives, he discovered the origin of this faulty document. Shocked and angry at his ancestors, he decided to tear the entire system down.

He gathered trusted adventurers, close friends and made connections with the underground, yet righteous personalities of his kingdom. By slowly spreading the origin story of the testimony, he founded a small party which later grew 500 fold. Afterfive years of hard training, strategizing and spying he released an open letter to the inhabitants of Zvaaraes, announcing an attack on the capital, ultimately seizing the crown and reforming the lands to former, righteous glory.

Battlefield

Lord Tryllei Zvaaria the Thirds castle, the home of the nineth king, also known as the Forestkings Palace, is like a giant maze to the untrained eye. Fortunately, Sir Illunpyuh knew the layout by heart and could navigate his troops around the many floors, corridors, towers and passages.

Outcome

The king and his council, along with his close supporters, were either killed or put behind bars. Sir Illunpyuh Zvaaria is currently rewriting the laws of his kingdom and is in the process of electing a trusted council, tending to various political, economical and religious matters.
