About this deal

At the Battle of Nouvionne, she crushed the army of Duke D'Bastalle, and that night, the Cauldrons of Blood were filled to the brim with the life essence of Damsels and Grail Knights.

The basic principle of the feudal system is that those lower on the social ladder among the peasantry are often serfs tied to their lands by law and custom that must provide the goods and services they produce as subsistence tenant farmers to those of higher status in the nobility in exchange for military protection and certain legal rights and privileges. Such was the overbearing pride and arrogance of the Bretonnians that one of them, the Baron du Bors, declared that the Bretonnians were better knights than the Tileans and so the Tileans should just hand over Ravola and be done with it! The royarch's rule is sovereign and absolute, with no laws made within the kingdom having any hold upon the actions of the king.Some of the knights were afraid to venture towards the burning forest, for fear of the dreaded Fay Enchantress that had made the forest her home. The siege continued for three years, creating conditions within the city favoured by the Red Pox which invariably struck. In the heat of battle, the Fay Enchantress appeared from the shadows and lent her aid towards the Knights, with the very trees of the forest rising up to meet the Greenskin invaders. Gaston had safely conducted the Fay Enchantress to the Grail Knights encamped not far from Mousillon. There are stories of whole cities of beastmen in the depths of the Arden, and whilst there is no evidence for this implausible idea, it is not impossible; no one knows enough about the forest interior to say the cities are not there.

Thus, the king's power serves as a check on the abuses and exploitation of the peasantry by the lesser nobility, which is a constant problem in a political system as autocratic as that of Bretonnia. Maldred was forthwith declared a malefactor before the whole land and stripped of his honour and dukedom. Many shepherds carry the Bretonnian crook, a spear with a hook at the end of the handle, and are skilled in its use. Turín - A holy city located in Carcassonne, it is famed for containing the Shroud of Gilles le Breton, an artifact of great religious significancAs the years went by, one of the most recent and major battles fought took place near and within La Maisontaal Abbey, located around the Grey Mountains. To the south and east, restless goblin tribes came down from their homes within the Grey Mountains, pillaging and burning their way through the dukedoms of Quenelles and Bastonne. Thus, the vows of the nobility are also ones of fealty to their own lord, either a higher-ranked noble or the king himself. Despite noble Sigmar's goal of pan-human unity, the cultural differences between the Bretonni and his people were apparently too large to overcome, thus his offer was quickly rebuffed, unable to accept a foreigner as their leader. The chosen warrior took up residence in the village watchtower, a wooden structure which would in later times evolve into a stone Castle, and would take for his wife the fairest maiden in the village.

In the year 470 (1448 IC), the war-torn southern realm of Estalia was invaded by Sultan Jaffar and the armies of Araby.With the aid of the combined armies, the knights drove the greenskins back, defeated them, and turned the waters of the river black with blood.

When the village was attacked by northern raiders, it was this construction that fended them off, firing massive chunks of masonry to sink the marauders' longships. Farming and mining communities dot the edges of the mountain ranges, renowned for the extremely steep roofs of their houses, designed to shed snowfall quickly. Some Knights perpetuated Duke Maldred's charade by preventing honourable knights from finding the true Grail or the Fay Enchantress. These commandments are an integral part of Bretonnian society and government, and are often used to dictate the actions of a Bretonnian noble. The knights cleaved through wave after wave of the enemy and burst forth into the open plain beyond.

As they prepared for the final battle, messengers brought word of an army of greenskins warriors, the largest they had ever seen, pouring out of the mountainous region known as the Pale Sisters. It wasn't until the reign of King Louis the Rash that the Codes of Chivalry were formalised and established, with the king appointing many heralds to regulate the ranks and honours of knighthood throughout Bretonnia. Among the tribes of the Bretonni it became the custom for the best and bravest young man in the village to be armed and ready at all times to fight off foes. Bretonnia is now the only nation of Men in the Old World to still employ a rigid system of feudalism in its original form as its system of government and economy.
