 +====== Campaign IX, Chapter 5, Episode 7 ======
  
 +**Location:​** ​ [[gaeleth:​places:​Halinar Duchies]], Shaemin Duchy
 +
 +**Characters:​** ​ Duke Holdrin Chaemos, Duchess Syrinna Haestar
 +
 +Duke Whistar of Shaemin hosted the annual Convocation of the Halinar Duchies, in 1332 Avard. ​ Duke Whistar, located near the northwestern borders, was a militant soldier that fought his way to the top by using his forces to bully many of the other dukes and their underlings.
 +
 +The Haestar Duchy used a rational, logical quota system of feudalism. ​ Duchess Syrinna of Haestar had built her lands in the northern lakes region into a powerful fishing and lumber cartel, and nearly dominated the oils market in the region. ​ The duchess also put a lot of her fiscal resources into investments,​ and at the Convocation of Duke Whistar this meant that the Haestar duchy had little money for bribes or counter-bribes. ​ Her military situation was a bit more defensible -- highly fortified towns, a moderate army size, and strong foreign contacts. ​ The Church of Galgiran had sent a contingent of dwarves, and the Sebre Druids were well known visitors of the duchy.
 +
 +Duke Holdrin of Chaemos was a more autocratic and dictatorial ruler, though his iron business model used fines, first, and then prison labor. ​ The plains of the Chaemos duchy produced cattle, beeswax, mead, grain, and finished wood, and served as a the bread basket for the duchies. ​ Chaemos duchy'​s only defended city was its capital, but it made up for it with a strong military presence. ​ Despite having such assets, Duke Holdrin was adamantly against assassination -- something many of his contemporaries had no compunctions about using.
 +
 +The Duchess Syrinna had recently survived an assassination attempt, and she also shared significant trade relations with Duke Holdrin. ​ For the 1327 Convocation,​ the two worked well together to protect Haestar from the machinations of the other duchies and from their host.

 +
 +**DM's Notes:​** ​ I waited too long to write a recap, and lost a lot of information on what took place. ​ Essentially,​ I handed the characters to Bill and Ross (Sommer couldn'​t play with us, that night, and Caileb was out), and had them help me create ​ the Halinar Duchies. ​ Until this night, they had been nothing more than a concept for me, and the guys helped me flesh the duchies out.
