A Writing Journey

Mondays are the best days! The whole week is spread out before you, just waiting to be experienced! Best of all, it means a whole week of posts to share with you! Enjoy part five and have a fabulous Monday!

Tir followed in the footsteps of his father and clung to peace. Even when the fields were struck with disease and winter took many lives, he did not consider killing animals or taking what he needed from his neighbors. But when the crops failed a second year, the people grew restless. Ahl, Tir’s own son, murdered him to gain control and save his starving people. Ahl decreed that it was lawful and right to kill animals, and that it was the gods’ displeasure that had caused the famine.

Ahl raised an army, promising food to all who enlisted, to cross the Mountains Dosid into Salvyn. Thus began the Famine War, with both sides starving and every resource going to feed the armies. The war ended after six years, after the Salvyni people had been cut into a scattering of villages and nomadic tribes and the fields of Ibvail had at last produced enough to feed its people. Ahl did not go to war again, though he kept his borders fortified and built a naval fleet.

Miran took over after his father’s death. He ruled for only two years before his untimely demise. In those two years, he rebuilt ties with Salvyn by sending them aid for reconstruction. His brother, Harayin, took up the crown after him.

Take care, fellow travelers!
