Chereladian Border Wars

During King Geoff's reign, border disputes with several smaller nations along Chereladi's borders sprang up and he mobilized the military and navy in order to protect the border. In addition to fighting with his troops for the eight year dispute, he arranged and signed a peace treaty with the border nations as well as other neighboring countries.

The Conflict

Battlefield

The Galleymasters' Guild supplied ships and slave crews to the Federation's side of the war, allowing them to harry supply lines and ports in Zlora and Pikae.
