The Demeskeen roll to Go to War (RRtK, p.58) in summer 382. They attack the only reachable territory: the Border Kingdoms. The Kingdoms are an easy prey since their defeat against the Ironmen last season. Since Duke Bohemond's Death, the Border Kingdoms' armies (3000 Borderers, 1500 heavy troops and only 300 knights) are now led by Lord Daven.
Demeskeen armies are highly maneuverable and led by a strategic genius, the Prince El Osman (WR=4) who can count on 4000 horsemen and more than 1500 foot soldiers (question of scale are discussed here).
