To the Honorable People of Caldaria,
The Court of the Sun wishes to express its sincerest regret to the people of Caldaria who have lost their homes to the Kurzinnor threat over the last few decades. To loose so much is a harsh and unjust fate for those so valiant. It is courageous that your people are so able to begin again, and look to a new beginning.
The High Ogre people, our Little Brothers, have also suffered greatly over the decades. Their tireless crusade against the forces of Chaos has left their people spread out across the land and without a home to call their own. Do these fine people not also deserve a home to call their own? It has always been the intent of the Twilight Elven people to grant a place for all High Ogres to come and live; a place where they can develop their society in peace, so they can grow as a people.
Alas, in Caldaria's haste to replace that which it has lost, she has not looked to the needs of her Little Brothers, or to the promises made in times past. King Nikolai Demos I, once made such a promise, to set aside land for our Little Brothers to grow and prosper. Death, unfortunately, would take his great example from your people before such an act could be made.
Much of the land between the Veiled and Eleytherian Forests is fertile land; a perfect place for our Little Brothers to call home. Alas, all of the land north of the Caldarian Mountains is now claimed by the Kingdom of Caldaria in an unprecedented expansion of her borders. Not since Mathias Thurgos III, has Caldaria expanded so greatly and so quickly.
This claim leaves no place for the High Ogres, and further, this claim infringes on the borders of the Veiled Forest and of the lands of the Twilight Elven People.
It is with much regret that the Court of the Sun must herby reject Caldaria's claim to the land between the Veiled and Eleytherian Forests. This claim has no precedent, and the Veiled Forest will not recognize a claim which denies the High Ogre people a new homeland and a chance to develop their society without outside influence.
It is the hope of the Court of the Sun that the just and honorable Nobility of Caldaria will speak with their Northern allies, so that together we can come to an accord which satisfies the needs of all peoples in need of a home.
