In the second episode of Season 2 of Borderwars it became immediately evident that not all are pleased with the proclamations of Queen Jordan, with many hesitating to take a knee when the banner of the Royal Dominion was brought forward. Though in the end they showed the respect due to the Queen the act did not go unnoticed.
In keeping with her proclamations regarding territory disputes the Queen allowed each house to dispute a single territory in the Arena. Tensions remain high between the Meridian Khanate and the Eastern Empire, both putting forward a claim on the Northern Highgreen. The Royal Dominion decided to send its own champion into the arena to contest that claim. Though they couldn’t claim it for themselves the Iron Republic also sent forward a champion in an attempt to disrupt the contest.
While each of the champions made their nations proud it was the Royal Dominion that won victory, claiming the Northern Highreen Forest as their own, under the banner of House Tempest. With this additional territory they only further cement the power they hold throughout Everland.
With Episode two complete, the standings are as follows:
- Royal Dominion (16)
- Eastern Empire (10)
- Iron Republic (8)
- Meridian Khanate (7)
