We are in the process of adding another kinship to our current alliance with The Bearkillers. Edlevenn is in the process of joining our chat channel and alliance. If you’d like to know more about them:
Akin to The Bearkillers in that they splintered off from the kinship Legends of Moria. Their name is Sindarin for “Exiled Ones.”
If you are curious where the Montival Alliance name originated: it is from a series of books that Artos and I both enjoy authored by SM Stirling. In the books Montival is the name given to a league of neighboring nations that forms an alliance under the leadership of a High-king and queen. All the nations retain their sovereignty but work together under the direction of the High-king (who, in the books, is named Artos Mackenzie).
