Buffalkill Family/Death of Xerxes
Lyonesse found itself defending Rieleston against the Barony of Makar's vikings. One such defense at the Battle of Wispen saw Harry Reed slay the beloved Royal Marshal Xerxes Buffalkill. The Barony soon surrendered, not to Rieleston, but to Lyonesse amongst other realms. This surrender came after the Cagilan Empire and allies sacked the Barony's capital of Sale. King Azreal soon gave Lord Ravendon the same sanctuary for vikings offered to ithilians. Wispen soon revolted against Rieleston, preferring Lyonessian rule. Sale was soon conquered and Howling Waste declared allegiance to Lyonesse.
