Honey War 2012 is On!

June 8-10, 2012

The story begins at Blatha an Oir’s Harvest Feast where Baronial taxes were collected. At that event a discussion was had between Baron Aleksii and Baron Johann concerning a certain baby born to Glymm Mereians who just happen to live within the borders of... Blatha an Oir. Then at Glymm Mere’s Yule Feast the challenge was made that either tax be paid for Abby or she becomes a Blatha an Oirian. Words were exchanged and then, WAR!!!!!!

The Barony of Blatha an Oir
It’s populace we do adore
But when they talk of taxes
We sharpen our war axes
And then we go to WAR!!!!!

War is not the only word heard by raised voices. Another cry has been elevated from many Glymm Mereians. The cry is BACON!!! For this year it is not only a war over honey, which is still coveted by our nefarious neighbors. But those bounding Blatha an Oirians wish to burgle our bacon.

Glymm Mere’s ire has awaken
A threat that a baby be taken
ya canna have our honey
ya canna have our Abby
Most of all, ya canna have our BACON!!!!!!

We welcome you to Honey/Bacon War on June 08-10 2012
