what I don't understand 8 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 8  
OK so the Empire chased the Valley peoples away from their home and yet you can now go back and indeed the recent report by Toshiro states that the reason they were creating a Bridge to Murandir in the first place is that people want to go home yes?

So I have a number of questions yes

Why is the Empire allowing the return of the Valley people

If lots of people go home what happens to the Towers - Orin Rakatha is my home, I joined the Valley people after you arrived yes Won't an exodus of status mean losing the towers?

If only some people go, the ones just from Murandir for example, isn't that most of the guild-leaders - if they go what happens to teaching adventurers new skills - will the Cabal take the teaching scrolls with them?

what if the king says that all his people should return home would you go?

What's the link between the king and the Empire anyway?

I'm confused yes(which is not unusual!)

Shhh!

If they all go away and abandon these towers we can all start the "Squirrel Tower" and build it into the shape of a giant acorn, and make everybody who lives in them grow tufty ears and adopt the "sq" at teh start of the name of their species...

It will be glorious...

But don't let on to anybody what the plan is...

Yo Snipey

Isn't Lord Veltyn the head of the Cabal? He's hardly got ties to Murandir, coming from an entirely different place n all. Anyone know if he's sworn to the King?

p.s. if they're gonna nick the scrolls, you better get all yer studying in quick!!

Actually, thinking some more... (yeah, I know!) if peeps go back to Murandir, I reckon they'd be mainly White Retreat and Valley types. So it could really end up like the old days, with Wolfhold larging it in their Tower and the rest packed into the VAT.

If we lost the White Retreat what'd happen to it... we could have some really nice neighbours move in next door, like the Morgothians fer example!

Or the Squirrel Tower!

EDIT: Obviously that was supposed to be yArp but I screwed up!

Well accordin to da report wot Zilvan wrote dah Empire Senator Amadeaus woz of "direct lineal descent" (woteva dat means) of da last High King of Murandir called Blaze (we's assume not dat Firey Elf what knocks around da Red School at times). Apparently da High King had to pick da King of whatever Paulandiss is from a choice of three candidates which woz done a few years back when a bunch of White Retreat (and a handful of VAT and Woldhold) types went on a Croosade! Oh and Michael asked dese Croosaders to make sure a new King was crowned 'cause he wasn't da leader he used to be due to wounds suffered fighting a Hepath or summit so he ascended to the Good Sphere and left them to sort fings out.

Dat's what we got from da report anyways.

Where's Kevvie-babes when you need her she always knows about dis stuff especially as she was Croosading wiv 'em?

It will be even more glorious when our foes lie at our feet on a field of war and we stand strong and protect dear Orin

if the empire has a king here that is allied to that at least means they wont attack us hopefully.

if worse comes to worse though the sword is an allie we cannot lose and if we can solve the situation peacefully it is a blessing from the spheres.

but i think it would be great if we could find more allies for the current war. if we can save more life then the better.

Excellent questions, my good fellow.

On the Empire, my understanding is that we are now officially a vassal state (or that each of our Towers are separate vassal states), and that Empire ambassadors are welcome in our Towers -- or, at least, this is the agreement that Sir Paullandiss (as he was) and his group took it upon themselves to make with the Empire. There are also some finer details about where we are self-governing, e.g. on Orin Rakatha, and where we are not. But I don't think that this is worth elaborating on now.

I should mention that I find this a shocking state of affairs, and would prefer that this agreement had never been made. I hope it's obvious why, so I won't continue to digress.

You also ask about an exodus of status. Now this is a very interesting question. If you swear your status to me for this year and then leave Orin Rakatha before the Time of Reckoning, will I retain the status you swore? My guess is "Yes". But can you swear your status to me when we're both elsewhere, and then let me 'take it back' to Orin Rakatha? My guess is "No"; we only have status, as such, when we're here.

As for teaching scrolls, there might be the possibility to rely on the Concillium. But why not just travel back and forth? So I will now ask a further question: how easy is this now going to be for us to do? Can we do in en masse?

Finally, the sensible strategy in any exodus would be to keep at least one Tower inhabited as a 'bolthole'. To do otherwise would leave us entirely at the Empire's mercy. As I think you intimate, the intention to leave Orin Rakatha altogether would likely also cause a split -- elements of our current Towers would break off to form their own new Tower and/or join other existing Towers.

what do we do when the towers are taken from us or we live Orin, what do we do when on water and our sails are drowned of their fare breeze, what do we do when our enemy gets to our portals do we withdraw to a better defensive position or do we show fearless devotion not just to the spheres but also to our kings and princes and leaders to make our stand and hold all enemies to the blade and shout out to our brethren accross the bridge oro se bheatha bhaile. (you are welcome home.) where we may stand together and hold the A------- and any other enemies to the blade for us to be glorious and but aside our hatred of old.

i fear no mortal enemy but my enemy in spirit form my blades cannot clench.

my real question in all this, Why are we not working with empire troops to protect orin and why are we letting our warriors go and why not use all elements together as it would be more balance to the spheres or am i missing something?

why not travel back and forth? well laziness I suppose, currently I live in the Guildhalls and have regular access to the teaching scrolls as a sorcerer, if they suddenly move off plane I'll have to travel out of the tower, across this bridge which I understand goes via Thranduil to Murandir and back again. Makes study a bit more of a chore yes?
