Tales From My D&D Campaign Wiki

The Deluvian-Vistrian Peace Treaty is an agreement between the Deluvian Empire and the Kingdom of Vistria.

It was initially presented to Duke von Christoff of Newland, but after he killed the messenger it was instead presented directly to King Edward by Rollo, a Sea Elf slave.

Although the Vistrian government accepted the treaty, it was forced to do so without properly consulting all of the Vistrian nobility, as the timeframe the Deluvians mandated allowed only half of the nobles to get their messengers back in time. This has allowed a faction of discontented northern nobles, figureheaded by Princess Haruyo van Smith, to rise up, possibly eventually aiming to take the throne for themselves. This has even led to a fracture in The Hand of Sirius, whose top secular leader Marcus Jonasson left to found The Gauntlet of Sirius.

It has even been suggested that some of the nobles intentionally delayed their messengers so that they would have a pretext for rebellion.
