With 22 games behind us in the narrative, we have seen the formation of a number of alliances between the different armies in the story. So today I would like to discuss those alliances and their goals and motivations.
First is the Alliance of Nevaz Berrag. The main armies that form this Alliance are The Whitehammer Dwarves (mine) and the Kingdom of Equitaine led by Duke Le Guerre, as well as their newly arrived Ogre Allies. It could also be argued that the Saurian Ancients are part of this alliance or at very least has a non-aggression treaty with it. The main goals of this alliance are the establishment and prosperity of Nevaz Berrag, as well as the protection of the lands surrounding it, which contain a number of sacred sites to the Lady of the Lake. While there have been many conflicts with the Elves of Port Kaer’vyan, this alliance sees their main enemies as being the forces of the Beast Herds and the Warriors of the Dark Gods, who would claim the lands as their own.
The Second Alliance is that of Port Kaer’vyan. While the Highborn Elves of Prince Thal Victus are the most active members of this alliance, they have recently been joined by the men of the Empire of Sonnstahl under Count Alexander Mitteos of Mittenheim, and the Dwarves of King Thorek Grudgehammer.(Michael's) This alliance is held together by the personalities of their leaders, who all share a close friendship. Prince Thal sees the greatest threat to them to be Saurians, followed by the Alliance of Nevaz Berrag. The other leaders do not agree completely, but are sworn to aid Prince Victus in holding on to his lands.
The Third Alliance is the Servants of Sek’a’lath. Formed of the Saurian Ancients and most recently joined by the Beast Herds of Bazkog, the Servants are a powerful force that has rarely been decisively defeated in battle. They care not for the other alliances and are focus on seeking out some item of power that is believed to be within or near Port Kaer’vyan. As such, their greatest enemy is the alliance under Thal Victus. Currently, Sek’a’lath is shying away from conflict with Nevaz Berrag, more out of a desire to not open a war on two fronts. So far, this tactic seems to be working as it allowed them to destroy the Blood Wood belonging to the Sylvan Elves and make great strides towards the Port.
Outside of these major alliances are a few unaligned forces:
Sylvan Elves: Having lost their home to the predations of the Saurians, the Sylvan Elves are scattered and running. They would likely be welcomed into either of the other alliances, but have yet to reach out in any real way.
Warriors of the Dark Gods: Under the command of Lord Kinta, the warriors are merely a force for destruction in the land. They have a grudge with Duke Le Guerre, but do not seem to be actively pursuing it at this time.
Dread Elves: The Dread Elves of Lady Ayas are a splinter sect of Port Kaer’vyan. While they pay lipservice to Prince Thal, they are primarily driven by their Lady’s Hatred of Dwarves. Though having suffered a massive defeat at the hands of the Kingdom of Equitaine, it remains to be seen how they will react to Thal’s forces being joined by dwarves of their own.
So that is a general overview of the current alliances in the story, I hope you all have enjoyed watching the story progress and I look forward to seeing where these alliances will take our forces in the games to come! [Read More]
