In the weeks preceding the Lion-Brobric War, the heroes of Heroica's fourth quest were hired by the Shadeaux to investigate the disappearances of trading caravans on Uland.
Chief among their suspects were the Brobric Elves, specifically an organization known as Keveak's Army which opposed the settling on Uland of any significant human faction. Convinced that the elves were behind the raids and were attempting to frame the Lion Knights, the heroes killed Lords Keveak and Ricroar in the Battle of the Hinckwell House.
Only later would they discover that the entire conflict had been designed by the Shadeaux to provoke a war from which they could profit. Thus, with the elves believing that their lords had been killed by Lion Knights, the Lion-Brobric War began.
To the heroes of Heroica's seventeenth quest fell the burden of protecting the Lion Knights and their purely agricultural goals from the rampaging elven army. Under Sir Lawrence Comayne, the best of the Lion troops gathered for a last stand at Bric'Bay Fort.
Exploring the fort, the heroes constructed defenses from what materials were available, giving them a fighting chance.
Finally, as onagers demolished the walls around them, the heroes killed Lord Keveak's three remaining lieutenants: Lords Davril, Belril, and Leorry.
With all the other elven lords dead, new High Lord Normorn took control and moved quickly to sign a peace treaty, ending the war.
Though the Lion Knights had been victorious and had secured their place as a minor power on Uland, their victory inspired some of their own to return to their ancient homeland of Dastan and rebuild an army. The Lions have turned to Heroica to assist them in rounding up the rebels before they can cause any trouble with the Three Emperors…

You see one of the many peasant farmers who have given the Lions a respectable share of the wheat, cattle, and sheep markets - and, consequently the power - on Uland. You see another pikeman, guarding an opening in the fence, step aside to allow the peasant and his sheep pass through. As they do, you see the pikeman turn to you.
