At this point the Kingdom of Eoshphora, ruled by Queen Jasmina is under attack by the Kingdom of Aequor. The sons of Cesare al'Callenta, Gabriel and Michael lead Aequors forces. The Vir Sidus faction led by Darius has just sent troops to occupy the Barony of d'Rhandhoul at Jasmina's invitation. Meanwhile to the north an aequorian crusade intends to strike at Gendiel's heart.

Current Situation

So far during May 2020…
It looks like things are happening in these battle zones:

Lands of d'Elfleda (Stonewall) - At Risk
d'Elfleda defending. Under attack from Argent and al'Callenta forces in the d'Cadri region. Impacted by al'Callenta warlord.
West Gendiel (Gendiel) -Stable
Under attack from argent/al'callenta forces in the d'Lario and North Munito (d'laucran) area and Rose and Shield forces from Benide. Defended by west gendiel, east gendiel and arrani forces.
Rhone (Stonewall) -Stable
Defended by both Stonewall and Duchy Forces. Under heavy attack from d'Lario region. Naval blockade by aequorian navy. Impacted by al'Callenta warlord.
d'Lario (Royalist) -Stable
Heavy al'Callenta/Argent presence. Defended by same. Impacted by the Naval blockade set by the aequorian navy.
d'Cadri (Royalist)-Stable
Heavy al'Callenta/Argent Presence. Defended by same.
North Munito (Royalist)-Unstable. GM'd scenes may change this.
After an attempt by Elian to force surrender on the Royalist d'Etoile forces a nonagression pact was agreed between d'Etoile and Blackthorn Forces. The Cardinal's forces discovered this almost immediately and sent two cohorts of the cardinal's guard into the area to secure the regions loyalty to the crown. The cardinal's forces moved to secure d'Etoile's castle with an immediate siege but were interrupted by the Blackthorn forces leading to a three way stalemate. The Blackthorns disengage at the beginning of june to take up position as the vanguard of the Elder's Eye attack force. It seems likely that fighting between the cardinals forces and d'Etoile will resume.
d'Laucran continues to serve as a launching point for attacks by al'Callenta forces into the territory of both Rhone and Gendiel.
Benide Region (Royalist)-Stable. GM'd scenes may change this.
Defended by the Rose and Shield and Royal forces.
The main stonewall army is poised to assault elder's eye and benide with imperial (Darius) and gendiel (Ramius) support. Lady Sir Marissa d'Allisone (NPC) is to siege benide to contain the forces within the great fortress. Elian is to command the vanguard.
Please note the benide region is part of the endings plotline and managed by Snoopy.

Other battle zones have no significant activity at this point.
