Spruceville Canal Crisis
In June of 2019, Vailan, under the leadership of vetous, had built a canal between Spruceville and themselves. The conflict that ensued was due to the fact that Vailan knowingly built the canal in land that was claimed by Montrose, under the Sylvian Union. The crisis was ended when the two parties agreed to open the canal and modify the borders to be split between the two.
This conflict was later brought back up by Flashy10 and Buckman_62 when they left Vailan as part of a "reconquista" of holy Oarfanist sites. Montrose ended up ceding the land to Al A'Deaq to appease the terrorists who eventually returned to Vailan, completing their ownership of the canal.
On March 20, 2021, Montrose decided to contest the claim Vailan had on the canal. This claim was supported by the fact that Vailan did not repair the damages done to it from the Great Western War and Vailan's claim over the land was not shown on any map since Fall of 2019. Two days later, on March 22, 2021, it was officially deemed to be uncontested by officials of Vailan. In the end, FlyingGMM completed restoration of the canal on March 26, 2021.
