“The sea breeds adventure, this is known to be true. To a sailor whose lust for adventure courses through his veins, time away from the sea breeds blood.”
– ancient Brionnese quote
Brionne is renowned throughout Bretonnia for its beauty, both natural and manmade. With soaring coastal cliffs, rugged mountains reaching the heavens, pastoral glades, matched only by the beauty of the soaring spires of its castles, the rugged beauty of the dry stacked city walls, and the quaint villages straight out storybook tales.
Early in his reign Duke Theodric had the brilliant idea to impress the rowdiest of the young men into naval service. This killed two birds with one stone by bolstering the ranks of Brionne’s privateers fighting pirates along the coast, as well as protecting his peaceful dukedom from the havoc that only young men can wreck.
His plan met success greater than his wildest imaginings and before long the vicious pirates, once common off the coast, had found safer hunting grounds. Without imminent threat these rowdy young men, grown rowdier from their time at sea, were rampaging through the idyllic coastal towns of Brionne.
In another stroke of brilliance Duke Theodric, a devout Blood Bowl fan, devised a new plan to keep these men in check. Gathering his top admirals together he tasked them with fielding the strongest, fastest, most skilled crewmen they could find to field a team in the newly formed Draft League Extraordinaire. Those not making the cut were to enter into a Blood Bowl training regimen while maintaining their duties as coastal patrollers.
Thus the Brionne Admirals were born, for the glory (and safety) of Brionne!
