The Dolburger Conflict

| The Truther Rebellion|
You ever wonder how Tree Hill fell Franklin. You ever question how so many Orcs could just walk blindly across this kingdom and not a soul saw them. Maybe its time to start asking questions.
Following the attempted murder of a younger peasent from west of Gulltown it was Johan, and Helan that were forced to remove him from the general public and sent him westward where he was placed in charge of a small garrison in the keep of Vorhelm. During his time at Vorhelm he befriended a group of youths in the nearby village that made their living by robbing merchants traveling on the roads nearby. Among these bandits was Emmy Pratter and alongside her he became a member of a powerful bandit gang that became notorious enough that he was ordered to put an end to them by the highest ranks of the nearby village. Since he was in charge of the garrison he made little effort to actually stop them, and this led to a continued question of what he was doing in Vorhelm. Spending his time among the bandits he grew close to Lambert of Vorhelm of whom taught him about the Temple of Glaurung and through this he found prayer and some manner of peace which calmed some of his violence but also during this time his relationship with Emmy changed and the two became deeply attached to as they both found a peace in each other, and their connection grew. As time went on she would persuade him to actually take part in the banditry, and as he did this their final bond was created. The love that the two held for each other was above anything else either of them felt, and for this reason she was able to finally forget the horrors of her youth, and Edward was able to move past his anger for a time. As this continued Edward would alongside Emmy became a leadership member of The Truth Brigade and with him in a control position there skill and strategy lifted itself immensely. Also among this growing leadership would be Jada Oakheart of whom having discovered that her brother Han Oakheart had become a bandit she attempted to find him by joining one herself and her brutality and intelligence would bring her quickly to the leadership of a group of bandits she called the Yellow Swords of Aerene and they aligned themselves to the Truth Brigade falling under the leadership of the Truthers. Through his leadership they became notorious enough that he was ordered to put an end to them by the highest ranks of the nearby village. Since he was in charge of the garrison he made little effort to actually stop them, and this led to a continued question of what he was doing in Vorhelm by many including increasingly members of House Shephard. Trenlik of Oakheart would be sent north from Tree Hill on the trail of finding Jada Oakheart of whom had left House Oakheart searching for her beloved brother Han Oakheart and in this search had become a member of the Truth Brigade a small but growing bandit force in the lands of House Shephard, and searching for Jada was difficult for Trenlik as he made the mistake of trusting Edward Shephard of whom imprisoned him in the dungeons of Vorhelm. Imprisoned within the walls of Vorhelm, Trenlik would remain in this position until after several weeks he was approached by Jada Oakheart and swearing himself to her protection he would join the Truth Brigade.
While Edward Shephard had failed to act on the bandits in Vorhelm his family in Lucerne had been sent letters asking for assistance, and some of them hinted that the young Edward Shephard could be involved in the actually bandits. With this in mind the Lucernians led by House Shephard would mass forces and move towards Vorhelm where they planned to completely wipe out the bandits and bring Edward in for questioning. In command of the forces of House Shephard and the Dutchy of Gulltown was Jack Shephard, and Sawyer Shephard of whom would gather to them a force of some two thousand men at arms and over a hundred knights and arrive without warning at Volhelmn and when they arrived the usually unemotional Edward found himself unable to turn against those he had come to love, and this led to him abandoning his post and joining the bandits in the forest. The conflict would become known as the Dolburger Conflict after the fact that while Jack and several men at arms asked Edward to show them the nearby village it would be Edward that led them to the Dolburger River and then ran away from his cousin to join the truthers.
Battle of the Hold of Truth
As the Truth Brigade was completely surrounded in their last hold out known as the Hold of Truth, and their other bandit allies had retreated away, they all knew that the final battle was upon them. Despite knowing that they were doomed the Truth Brigade would refuse to retreat and decided to die together and in this way they prepared for the assault of the massed forces of House Shephard. The Truth Brigades hid themselves in the trees, and anywhere they possibly could, and when the forces of Jack, and Sawyer arrived it took hours to get inside and they took terrible casualties to the dug in forces of the Truth Brigade. Jack, and Sawyer who in the final battle captured their cousin and his bandit wife Emmy alongside half a dozen other membersof the Truth Brigade.
Trial of the Truthers
House Shephard would bring the prisoners back to Vorhelm where Jack, and Sawyer would host the Trial of the Truthers where in the sixteen survivors were placed on trial for their crimes. Arriving during the trial was Taylor Shephard of whom as the trial was well underway would speak emotionally in favor of prison time for the Truthers, and despite resistance it was Jack Shephard who did not actually want to execute so many people and thus took the escape offered by Taylor in jail not execution. As a part of this deal it was Taylor Shephard that was placed in command of the Volhelm which he was commanded to turn into a prison, and was given full authority over the area to do this.
