The wars continue to rage across the seven kingdoms with new battles flaring up even as old ones die out. In one of the wars the desert kingdom of Dorne (NDO) was involved, a rogue group from Dorne split out and attacked the Northmen Clans. In response, the Northmen defended back which caused a chain reaction. Because of the timing with the Bacon Wars, the Northmen thought they were somehow added to the greater war and were mealy forgotten in the official declaration and fought on. When peace was achieved in the fight for bacon, the Northmen found that this was considered a raid on the North by Dorne and the full assault began with the full force of Dorne with some help from the lands of Catharsis. The Northmen Clans took it as a compliment to their fighting ability that a large kingdom like Dorne felt the need to bring in help from one of their smaller allies and fought on fiercely.
The kingdom of Dorne has yet to reach out to the leader of The Northmen Clan to resolve this conflict and considering the rate of declarations, the clansmen can only assume Dorne means to wipe out The Northmen. Since Dorne does not consider this war a part of the Bacon wars, a separate peace will have to be made but even with the posting of terms for peace by The Northmen Clan’s leader, the declarations continue and still no word. So the North continues to be taken advantage of during this time of woe with no Stark to bring everyone together and Winterfell still in ruins.
Winter has come and The Others are coming
