The Young Vicious Horde Story Arc - The Call for Help from the Mongol Lands

by Charissa de La Sirra

As spring came, the bones and other omens warned of the impending Chinese invasion into Mongolian lands. The shaman ordered the building of Aramanthra's war banner. With the war banner in hand, the shaman and the Young Vicious Horde, called Aramanthra to lead them in war. When Caesar Valharic Caligula Aurelius, Imperial Governor Gaius Niklos Aurelius Luctator and all of Northshield heard of the plight of Mongol tribes, they gave their leave. In the midst of court, the beautiful courtly Princess transformed into the wartime Khan, completely in armor. So, Aramanthra the Vicious, Khan of the Young Vicious Horde, went to war with the Chinese.

Here is the Call to War for Aramanthra:

O dreaded Aramanthra the Vicious
The bones speak!

The Chinese have had fat years of favorable prosperity to bloat their feeble egos
The Chinese would steal the lands of our tribes to raise their bungling bureaucratic careers
The Chinese would suck the soul of our lands with tireless tilling and ceaseless cities
The Chinese would leave our lands a desert so bonelessly barren that not even grass would grow

Our tribes gather for war!
The winds whisper of your wisdom,
The rivers roar of your renowned victories
The mountains move to your manifest command
The heavens proclaim your highest honor
Ride with us on this day
Claim your war banner
Lead us to victory

Oh Middle King and Queen,
You who have many wise war leaders and trusted triumphant tactics,
Allow us our war leader

Oh Gaius Niklos Aurelius Luctator ,
Give us your blessing and if you can, ride with us, we could use your counsel as well.
If the senate and realm could spare you,
We would return to them a seasoned and victorious commander.

Oh Northshield
Lend us your princess,
Who is also dear to our hearts

Oh Northshield
give us your best wishes,
for we fight a mighty foe with more numbers and more riches,
but we, the Mongol tribes, have more spirit and more cunning

O dreaded Aramanthra the Vicious
The bones speak
Our tribes gather for war!
The winds whisper of your wisdom,
The rivers roar of your renowned victories
The mountains move to your manifest command
The heavens proclaim your highest honor
Ride with us on this day
Claim your war banner
Lead us to victory

The Young Vicious Horde must now leave Northshield
Special thanks for Northshield hospitality who welcomed us into their comfortable castles
Special thanks for Northshield tolerance who allowed us our curious customs
Special thanks for Northshield generosity who gave us cake and candy
Special thanks for Northshield training in competitive archery, in courtly fighting and in clever catapults
Half the Young Vicious Horde is on the journey home, laden with loot
The remaining Young Vicious Horde await for your legendary lead

O dreaded Aramanthra the Vicious
The bones speak!

You know the pattern of history mandates the motive to move on
You have nurtured noble northshield heirs to defend from friendly foes
You have guided Northshield with watchful wisdom
You have served Northshield with rich recognition
You have lighted the way for Northshield's favorable future

Our tribes gather for war!
The winds whisper of your wisdom,
The rivers roar of your renowned victories
The mountains move to your manifest command
The heavens proclaim your highest honor
Ride with us on this day
Claim your war banner
Lead us to victory

Ride with us now.
