history of the war

Tradition saying it was started over the correct texture of chocolate chip cookies (chewy or crunchy), this war has its earliest roots as the Shasta Punitive Raid in AS 11 (August ‘76) where "sides were chosen [&] An Tir emerged victorious, thus forcing the Kingdom to keep Shasta." The following year on the now-traditional weekend, the 2nd Annual Shasta Counter-Invasion was held, calling mercenaries to “HELP SUPPORT -- or oppose -- THE MANIFEST DESTINY OF AN TIR." Next year's was called the Golden Rivers and Lion's Gate War. Though Kingdom history records no such war in '79, it returned in '80 and again in ‘83 as the Lionsgate-Westermark War before again laying fallow for a year to return in its current form in 1985 as West-AnTir / AnTir-West War. Now, after drifting from battlefield to battlefield for decades, it found a home in Gold Beach in 2007 and remains there to this day.
