The Skirmish of the Ides was a minor battle between the Fort Munhall Command and the Hicks Insurgency that occurred on May 15th, 2013 in Fort Munhall Military District. The battle began somewhere within the 7:00 PM hour when forces from the Kingdom of Michrenia encountered the Insurgency and was forced to defend the fort from the attackers. Varinian forces were summoned at approximately 7:45 PM to supply weapons and men, and the combined defense managed to hold the Insurgency off long enough to keep hold of the fort. The battle itself was rather uneventful and resulted in no injuries.

Order of events

Michrenian forces were stationed at the fort when Hicks and a female assistant appeared. Michael I, who recognized Hicks, immediately began forming defenses. By 7:30, the two sides were at battle, though it is not known exactly what happened. A distress signal was sent out to Varina asking for men and supplies, and by 7:50 David I had appeared at the fort with two guns and a sword. Hicks and S., who were in the Open Field, were avoided by David as he made his way around to Fort Munhall proper, giving Michael the Raider and keeping the Longshot for himself. Michael began firing on the two insurgents, and David made his way up to the top of the fort under fire with throwing sticks.

Michael then left the fort with the sword, and charged into the Open Field to combat the insurgents. While David attempted to support, the majority of the next forty minutes comprised of him and S. fighting in melee combat. When this finished, David took over while Michael tried to find Hicks, who by this time was outside the fence boundary of the district. Very shortly, David, who had talked with S. the day before, managed to cease the combat between them and Michael, shortly thereafter, persuaded the girl to join their side. Hicks, seeing the unbalanced combat, decided to leave entirely. At 8:40 PM, the Varinians left leaving Michael and S., who had founded her own nation, Calinenia.
