Harper's Tale History Exam

Up ] [ History Exam ] Essays ] Composition Contest ]

This exam was to test the knowledge of HT’s concession of Ista Lord Holders with a question or two on some major tp’s that shook the hold. I hoped everyone had fun with it. Its a bit of trivial that some of the older players had forgotten.
