Campaign Uses of Froth's Empire

As a GM if you want to use the events of Froth's short lived Empire, here are a few things you could do:
1) Be a mercenary that is hired by Froth, or even Notitia.
2) Be a member of the villages who are with Froth and want to expand his Empire.
3) Be a member of villages who are with Froth and don't want to expand.
4) Be part of the army to come take back Froth's Empire.
5) Or just be an independent person, (or group) that just gets caught up in the action.

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 248

Year 248 AC
A huge force is sent from Notitia to take over Froth's "Empire" and take back the land lost to him.  It's not a complete massacre, but the militia is wiped out and the land is reclaimed for Notitia.  The people of the "Empire" are heavily taxed for the next few years to pay for the expense of bringing down Froth's "Empire".  Froth himself was killed in a last stand near his fort.

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 247

Year 247 AC
Trevon Froth, with a bigger militia, pushes the boundaries of his "Empire" out further from his small group of villages, by force.  Most of the area is just farms, so the farmers just go on with their lives, but two military posts are also taken and Notitia prepares to wipe out Froth's "Empire" come the next spring.

Expanded Timeline For After Chaos (AC) Part 246

Year 246 AC
Trevon Froth manages to put a small militia together which begins to raid small villages near his "empire".  The authorities in Notitia are notified, but because they are on the fringes of the Notitia's bounds they aren't overly concerned and only send a small group of mercenaries and soldiers to take care of the problem.  This leads to the death of the whole expedition and more serious action is discussed in Notitia.
