Fellow Lions,

By now I hope that you are all aware of the predations of the elemental forces against our people. They have conquered Emmerix, and now they have moved onto Ontarix. They are enslaving our people with possessions and they even claim that the mighty Drachen Ontarix supports them.

We cannot, at this time, move to liberate Emmerix - our forces are too scattered across the Heartlands and the elementals are too well entrenched. It grieves me more than I can say to leave those people under elemental control any longer, but we must fight the battle that has the greater chance of victory first. And so we move to Ontarix. The elementals have not yet taken this island - it takes time to cover such a large landmass and our Watchguard, along with some courageous volunteers, are working to keep the population of the island safe and, where possible, moved to other islands. They have a foothold here, but the island has not yet fallen to them.

Our scouts have already moved to Ontarix so that when we arrive we will have intelligence about the surroundings and the movements of our enemy. We cannot guarantee the security of the transport circles and I will not risk our people sixteen at a time. For this reason we move by sea. We will make a beach landing on Friday evening, close to the transport circle and move immediately to secure that area so that we can have greater powers to move to, from and across the island and assist with any necessary evacuations. Once land is in sight, each of us must ensure that we are ready for battle, whether our weapon be steel or otherwise.

The elementals have many advantages over us. Their numbers are great, and their position entrenched. Their powers are strong and their motives largely unknown. They bring our own people against us, meaning that we must take care with our blows. Not only that, but most of the elemental forces that we face are enslaved by the Lords of Time. We are not looking to kill either our own enslaved people or those of the elementals that fight unwillingly. Pull your blows and do not strike to kill our people - our healers and physicians will be working to keep people alive. Breaking possessions frequently causes fatal wounds, so we must work especially hard to ensure that we keep ourselves safe and that the healers have the power to help those that we save.

We, however, have something vital that they do not. We have the hearts and spirits of Lions! These are not the first to try to force us from Lantia. These are not the first that have sent our own people against us. These are not the first that have dared to bring harm to those we call friend. They will not be the first that we defeat! One island has fallen whilst we dealt with their troops on Du Pre. No more will fall. For we are the Lions of Lantia and we will not, nay cannot, be defeated.

In Faith
