The Bloodletting

Though the nobleborn of Irie surrendered, the same cannot be said of the denizens of the moors and forests of Irie. A peasant’s uprising began nearly as soon as the war was over, using guerrilla tactics and assassinations. They fought for a further two years, waging a long, bloody campaign. It was still not enough and the leaders of the Irien Rising were executed in 1718 by hanging. The tree used to hang them still stands in the capitol of Dunleith. For the last fifty-eight years, partisans have kept to the woods and moors, fighting against any oppression from both Irien nobles and the Agrainian military.
