When it comes to large scale events and High Rock Noble Houses I personally operate under some basic rules.
1. Thou shalt not lay a ruling claim to an in-game location.
In other words, no, you can't depose Queen Arzhela and claim to rule Evermore. Not even as a Regent with her permission.
So really, just don't. Those are open and "public" spaces and if one person can claim to be the Earl of Hoarfrost Downs so can someone else and next thing you know we have competing "realities." It's bad form. Really bad form.

2. Thou shalt not play the ruling NPCs.
In other words, no, you can't say Emeric said something disparaging about a player character at dinner or made a ruling against a player character. A caveat, however; All nobles derive their titles, ultimately, from the Crown...and that is High King Emeric. That can ALSO be Queen Arzhela and any other NPC King or Queen in High Rock...but even they ultimately hand out such rewards under the auspices of Emeric. So whether you got a title from a player-character Duchess or said your character got their title from birth, their family having been Lords for generations... in the end there's no way to completely cut out the NPC rulers. A certain amount of "hand waving" is required in this case. And whether "getting your title though RP" or simply creating a character that has a title from jump... keep in mind that both have EQUAL validity, neither is somehow "better" or "more legitimate" than the other.

3. Thou shalt only lay claim to rulership of PLAYER-MADE demesnes.
Wanna be a Duke? Fine. Make up your own Duchy. Bear in mind that the cities on the map are mere snapshots and the "real" map would encompass a much vaster place with plenty of room for other domains of various status. Don't bother to try to lay its borders out on the game map. You'll just generate argument. The Barony of Gawd Du is "south of Northpoint by better than a day's ride." There. Done.

4. Thou shalt not pretend to authority over any player character outside your own demesne.
In other words, those players who have agreed that your character has authority over them. No one else has to listen to what your Duchess says.

Does this series of events conform to all of the above? From what I've been able to glean (and my information retention is not perfect so it's possible I'm wrong) it seems that it does.

(Due to Holidays and Other things having come up I will be ending the war segment of this plotline a phase earlier than it was supposed to, there will be some followup smaller scale events around the start of the new year for anyone who is still interested, as such I have provided a narrative of what would have been the final phase of the war itself for anyone who was participating.)

End of the War
castle_siege_large.jpg

With the defeat of his allies in the north and the arrival of forces from Daggerfall at Northpoint, Count Razerel saw his plans quickly beginning to unravel. Upon recieving word of yet more enemy forces coming up from the south through Old Gate the Count was left with no other option but to launch his attack on Shornhelm. His delay however, had been more costly than the Count had realized, the survivors of the Army of Shornhelm had not been idle after their disastrous defeat at Hoafrost pass, and had spent the time erecting numerous fortifications and traps between Hoarfrost Downs and Shornhelm. These obstructions slowed Razerel's march considerably and by the time the Count Reached the walls of Shornhelm and laid siege he was short on precious time.

The siege lasted only a few days before the southern reinforcements from Wayrest and Evermore arrived. With Daggerfall already laying siege to their fortresses in the north the Rebels were left with little choice but to stand and fight. Massively outnumbered and forced to contend with enemies on two sides the Rebel army still fought on for two full days before victory was finally achieved by Covenant Forces. In the end the Rebel army was completely decimated with what few survivors remained fleeing east or north into the mountains. Count Aldrick was slain in battle but no sign of Razerel himself could be found.

With the main Rebel Army Defeated and the threat ended the armies of Wayrest and Evermore began to return south leaving small groups to hunt down the scattered remnants of the Rebel army, as the Shornhelm forces marched north once more to assist Daggerfall in tearing now the remaining Rebel Strongholds in the north. Count Olmas who had narrowly survived his loss near Northpoint was slain early on with his castle being one of the first targets.
