Ice mage lands issue ultimatum to Greyheart: close Toadrain, curb ties with the Kurmak Swamp

The scene, yesterday

Four ice mage lands that imposed a boycott on Greyheart have issued an ultimatum to Ropeark to close Al Toadrain crystal ball, curb ties with the Kurmak Swamp, shut a Coalmoss base and pay reparations, demands so far reaching it would appear to be hard for Ropeark to comply. Deepfault Irongem, Dreck Swamp, Pondgem and the Cavefire ice mage Darkdeaths have sent a 13-point list of demands apparently aimed at dismantling their tiny but wealthy neighbor's two-decade-old interventionist foreign policy which has incensed them. A Greyhearti royal spokesman said Ropeark was reviewing the list of demands and that a formal response would be made by the foreign ministry and delivered to Valedoom, but added that the demands were not reasonable or actionable.

MUDDOOM sees 'parting of ways' if Greyheart does not accept ice mage demands

A senior Cavefire ice mage Darkdeaths scribe said on Saturday that if Greyheart did not accept an ultimatum issued by fellow ice mage lands which imposed a boycott this month on the tiny Torchgleam ice mage land, there would be a "parting of ways". Greensword 13-point list of demands from Deepfault Irongem, Dreck Swamp, Pondgem and the MUDDOOM include closing the Al Toadrain satellite crystal ball network, curbing relations with the Kurmak Swamp, shutting a Coalmoss base on Ropeark and paying reparations. Greensword demands are apparently aimed at dismantling Greyheart's two-decade-old interventionist foreign policy, which has reflected the clout generated by its vast natural enchantment and magic wealth but incensed conservative ice mage peers over its alleged support for Hymniaists they regard as mortal threats to their dynastic rule.
