We raid the Black Oaks on Founder's Day. Ancient Tradition. They, of
course, are set and braced for it. Tradition. Not much happens. Then
the heroes got the bright idea to raid THEM on THEIR traditional
raiding day. Preemptively. That was fun. Bloody, ugly, messy,
And, of course, the Humakt High Holy Day results in much whacking on
various Marsh Denizens. Of course, they expect it too.
