Westerner conflict (Sutton conflict)Edit
Pedestrian state is a quite divided state with quite a lot differences. The backgroun for this is the chasing away and hunting down of the native people of the Westerners by the first Forestian settlers that had settled in the Pedestrian City. Forestian settlers also have a history of ill-treatment of the Westerners a few Periods earlier when they were chased away from the New Forest peninsula. Shropshereans in Pedestriania, as well as the ruling power, a still being accused of ill-treatment of the local Westerners still living in Pedestriania.
1st Pedestrian Civil WarEdit
The first civil war on the Peninsula happened shortly after Pedestrian City was established. At this point there were very few settlements on the peninsula, except by Westerner farmers, limited to the southern parts. The conflicts started when Westerner soldiers from Pedestriania raided the settlement that today is Pedestrian City. The conflict escalated when the Forestians brought in private armies supported by rich merchantmen from New Forest to take revenge as well as defending the city. A final battle took place on the Midplain plains where the armies of Pedestrian City met Pedestrian Westerners, backed up by other local Westerner tribes. The Westerners were forced to integrate into Pedestriania, and the state gained rule over all land from the Coventry strait to the jungle in the east.
2nd Pedestrian Civil WarEdit
After two periods of peace, where the Westerners of now Sutton and Midplain county had participated in elections by the Pedestrian state, the conflict rose up again after a fight in the Pedestrian Parliament, the Pedestrian Hall. The Sutton representatives left the hall in rage. Shortly after, local Westerners in Broadland Port executed a coup to take control of the chairmanship. Having confiscated the Broadland Port navy, they sailed up the Ingham river, only to be cut off by a private New Forest navy, allied to Pedestriania that sunk most of it. Meanwhile, Westerner forces had marched on South Port, and then Coventry, to take control of these important settlements. A short lasting victory though, since the Pedestrian fleet sailed to Coventry and the forces experienced a long siege. At the same time Pedestrian forces moved towards Midplain, and easily regained control of this areas, before they marched on Sutton Cove. After a short battle the state troops regaine control. Coventry remained under rebel control for some time before they also fleed.
