UNTO THE POPULACE DO I, PRINCE SIR THOR, SEND GREETINGS:
In an effort to further the great expanse of this mighty Realm, the Legion of Thunder has lain siege to foreign lands that aim to compromise our very existence. First, we sent Legionnaires to topple Greece. Then, we marched troops to the Kingdom of Phrygia in Asia Minor and successfully waged war against the Mighty King Midas. With our lust for conquest unquenched, we then mobilized up north to the Kingdom of Conquest, a Pax Imperium realm, only to lay claim to a deserted wasteland. What was to come would prove to be our greatest campaign......
With weapons in hand and the spirit in our hearts we turned to our long standing Eastern enemy: The Dynasty of Ming Yung! Mighty battles were fought between Roman armored Legionnaires and sword swinging samurai, but when the smoke of the smoldering fires cleared, it was the Giant Banner bearing the colors of Black and Purple that remained vigilant, waiving proudly in the morning light of the rising sun. With the implementation of numerous Legion Commandries to insure the safety of any and all Uberites who wish to travel to this newly conquered land, we are now able to engage in Revelry suitable for a successfully conquering realm such as The Mighty Kingdom of Uberheim. With all of that shemhamforash babble behind us......
Unto all subjects of Uberheim, do I, Prince Sir Thor, hereby invite you all to travel to the lands of the fallen Dynasty for a day of celebration and feasting. Those who call these lands home have welcomed our arrival as we have toppled their oppressive leadership, and are prepared to engage us in a variety of activities and edible delectables that are very unique to their culture, such as follows....

DISCLAIMER: It is fairly obvious that in creating this event I have completely butchered the entire Asian culture. My intent is to entertain, not to offend. 'Nuff said! We Look forward to seeing you all in this celebration of yet another grand victory!!!
