The Door to the chamber opened and a small kumfei dressed in the official diplomatic dress of the I’tashi Alliance leadership.
He walked in and handed a proclamation to all those present.
Then he took a position so he could be seen by all and began to read it.
"By word and deed, Elijah Morte claimed rights as Grand Magi of the Northern Kingdoms.
He is busy with running the ship of state. But he knows the treasonous Boriel has been attempting to create a coup or create chaos or create distrust of Elijah Morte’s government.
As a result, it has been declared that all nations of the I’tashi Alliance must remain Neutral in the coming fight. Let safe passage be granted to Boriel’s army so that the false forces of Boriel and the True and Goodly Forces of Elijah Morte might meet in battle.
Elijah Morte has selected the location of this battle. As the Grand Magi of I’tash’s greatest goal was once preventing Warmonger from arriving through the DeathGate at the Ruins of Morgoth, let the battle take place there.
The radiation of the terrain will sicken any who wander from the battlefield towards the Ruins which will keep the DeathGate safe.
As all sides know the Ruins of Morgoth have been under Unity occupation since the end of the Border Wars. They will fire equally on both sides.
Let the winner claim both victory over the battlefield and victory over the Ruins of Morgoth. Elijah Morte and his personal armies and Boriel I’tash and his personal armies. All other nations from Korpu to Wintermute, from Fort Lendill to Beacon City, from Borvis to Tal Hanon, are to remain neutral. Let no armies march from those nations and any heroes who personally wish to stand with Elijah Morte or with Boriel may do so without fearing punishment from the I’tashi Alliance government.
On the date of the New Year 2221AR, let the battle begin on the fields south of the Ruins of Morgoth."
The Kumfei made to leave after making the proclimation, but both Fal’cyon and Valens were surprised Elijah Morte would make such a proclamation and not meet with the Alliance nations first. They demanded he explain but the Kumfei seemed quite frightened.
“My lords I am not allowed to say any more. Grand Magi Elijah Morte was very clear, he made it clear I was not to mention of discuss the Sylvan Warleochs or the Siurcut’n Keyaba.”
Both the Wintermute and Fort Lendill Diplomats immediately began to worry, would Elijah Morte so fear Boriel’s loyalists that he would call the ancient Sylvan to the planet.
The kumfei left them saying, “I am sorry, I should not have said anything.”
