Avalonia vs Drow
Rumors have been trickling down to Kaliphlin of skirmishes between Avalonia and Drow. The word is, that the ruler of Avalonia, Artorious Rex, has now officially declared war on the Drow. It seems that Avalonia fears an imminent invasion by the Drow. Avalonian merchants visiting Barqa describe the Drow as merciless cowards, a disaster just waiting to happen. If the Drow are allowed to continue as they are, they say, it is only a matter of time before they leave Nocturnus and seek to conquer all of Historica.
On the other hand, visiting Drow from Nocturnus describe the Avalonians as whimsical flower plucking romantisists wearing tights and say it is for the good of Avalonia that the Drow enslave them. When asked if it is true that they plan to conquer all of Historica, they heartily agree.
Local Kaliphlinian Drow are worried that they will be racially profiled along with their Nocturnal relatives. "We strongly disagree with the action of the Nocturnus Drow," says a local Drow leader. In fact he says, "most of the so called Nocturnus Drow are not even of Drow blood but hideous subcreatures that admire ancient Drow culture." It is of great concern to them that Avalonia has declared war on Drow in general and have not distinguished between the different Drow clans. "We cannot change what our forefathers have done and it is a great injustice to us peaceful Drow to be treated as enemies when we have done no harm to anyone. Just because half our race might be evil does not mean we all are," our local Drow leader claims.
