The Captain of your home guard approaches you in the middle of the night with strange news. 
He informs you that, only a few minutes ago, a cowled stranger delivered a scroll, addressed to you and sealed by a smear of ochre wax.. 
The message reads: 
"To My Lord Geofrey, 
It is with the utmost urgency and concern that I bring this business to you. 
The dark power emanating from The Rift has soared during the night, peaking and dispersing itself only some moments ago. 
Whilst The Rift is now silent, ancient and terrible things have been stirred from their slumber and are, even as we speak, heading towards those active gateways to the dread worlds beyond the veil. 
The foolish Archmages of the Circle Of Five tarry and dither, conducting their pathetic investigations and studies. Too little, too late, as ever. 
The sands in the hourglass are whisper-thin and in the early hours before dawn, when the darkness itself saps the strength and will from the living, the moment will be upon you. 
Whilst I cannot assist you directly, I have employed the services of those who have some passed-down knowledge of fighting beasts of this nature, and they will endeavour to be there to assist when the time comes. I have no guarantee that it will be enough and even my powers cannot undo all the horrors that have been awakened. 
I wish you all the grace of your forebears in this matter, for you will surely need it." 
The message is signed with a wax seal of a forked lightning bolt.

I received this message moments ago, anyone else get one similar?

I didn't get it, because my army was home to recharge. I hope this doesn't mean I lose out on some serious fun :(

Your guess is as good as anyone's Starrbuck - nobody except our beloved dev team has the answer.

If you want my guess: You will find out before the end of the night tonight - and the solution could involve some rather feisty beasties.

The message is signed with a wax seal of a forked lightning bolt.

I imagine that there is a faction out there with such symbols.

I did a little (literally about 5mins) digging, and suspect it may be from survivors of, or agents seeking the rebirth of, the Tenaril faction.

The intonation of the letter is openly hostile towards the Circle of Five, and there is no love lost between the two factions (-40 standing) and the lightning bolt motif can allude to their home of Stormstone deep in the south of Illyria (-43|-973).
I'll be sending scouts, however this may take some time, as I'm far to the north.

Nice thought Stormyfs, but can you send them? It seems impossible to me ...

It is, indeed, impassable terrain. :(

I didn't get the note because I had no tavern in the participating cities.

Maybe taverns is useful for something after all ? 

EDIT: I did get the message even I did not have taverns .... I had just missed it in all the battle reports.
