1.  First Conflict Overview

A group of loners centered within Halifax view Casa di Cavalieri's gradual expansion and honorable reputation as a threat to their crime ring. Deciding that the lands of the Knight pack would make a perfect spot to establish and operate a thieves guild, they send spies to try and infiltrate and report back on Casa's defenses followed by a preliminary assault that results in two of their number being captured. Luca Knight, newest member of The Brotherhood is called to execute the prisoners. He balks, however, and the grim task is taken up by Lune Alistair Callow-Knight following a heated discussion between leaders and a member vote. Following the execution, Lola revokes her Brotherhood Oath. She is later returned to the fold by Jazper Rhiannon-Knight. Sylvie Agnès also begins to distance herself from the pack and retreats along with Julien(pNPC) to the Avalon, taking Lorenzo Knight's daughter Ghita with her.

Casa sends their own spies to scope out the crime ring but before a counter can be arranged the Syndicate attacks again in full force. After a brutal and bloody battle every member of the Syndicate is killed by Casa's warriors in an overwhelming victory to Casa di Cavalieri.

Injured during battle, the Sole of Casa decides to abdicate and steps down as a leader, leaving Lune Alistair Callow-Knight as it's sole leader.

2.  Second Conflict Overview

Mysterious figures begin causing trouble using a variety of different methods, each as dirty and dishonest as the next. Sabotage includes chasing Casa's herds of prey away, setting booby traps within the borders (stringing up unwitting Cavaliers), attacking members on patrol, and erasing Casa's border scents with their own.

The Lune and Sola announce these dangers to all of Casa's members, and give orders to attack any trespassing loners on sight. After the first handful of unwelcome loner incidents, a patrol consisting of Isaac , Arthur , and Howland was dispatched to Halifax and surrounding areas to look for leads on the unwelcome visitors and attempt to discover why they are suddenly so interested in Casa di Cavalieri. Only Howland returns with news that it is a new reiteration of the Syndicate who have been attacking them, and that Isaac and Arthur have been taken by them!

The Cavaliers, upon hearing the news, vote in favor of sending a small group of spies to infiltrate the location their pack mates had been taken too. Grynn Garcia-Knight, Rurik Ivanov, Jace Wolfe, and Arlen Stryder, with the help of a loner named Theo, who was also trying to rescue his friend Josephine , successfully rescued their fellow Cavaliers and Josephine. After staying in Casa di Cavalier for a night of food and rest Theo and Josephine decided to stay.

Realizing that the Cavaliers had out witted them, the Syndicate sent a small party to attack Fort Kingsbury and take hostages, testing the defenses of the knights. Unfortunately for the Syndicate, two of the scouts, Tessa and Darius , turn on them and fought alongside the Cavaliers, ending the attack quickly. After questioning the two Syndicate deserters the leadership learned that the Syndicate originate from a pack in Portland but had left to pursue more aggressive means to their ends, starting up a gang in Portland first, then moving to Halifax. Tessa and Darius had traveled from the Portland pack to investigate rumors of the gangs violence in Halifax.

After the attack an eerie calm settled over the pack lands, the Halifax Syndicate base seemingly abandoned. After weeks of silence a loner named Leoris Steinmeister called a warning from the border, the Cavaliers arrived just in time to greet a large group of Syndicate. The leader of the group, identified as Laurent, declared the Cavaliers to be bullies and demanded they leave the territory to settle elsewhere, or suffer consequences. A battle erupted for the lands and the Cavaliers came out on top. The final battle was difficult and the Cavaliers did suffer consequences - many were wounded and long time members Clara Bates and Julien Gauthier, were killed on the field. Leoris, impressed with the knight's skills in battle, and pleased to see the gang that had terrorized his merchant business gone, decided to stay and help the pack recover.
