Evora would have been lost anyway, it was just a matter of time as it's easier to reach from the North than from the South.

The North has organised its offensives well for several months whilst the South has been bickering amongst itself and alienated the peasantry too much to have stable control along the front lines. An alliance divided loses its ability to respond effectively.

Well, yea, that's what I said. ;)

Really interesting thread.

Thanks for all the history lessons.
Today is Thank Wimpie for Being an Awesome Dev Day. Give Wimpie some gratitude for his constant bugfixing, pestering of admins to get things done, and general Wimpieness.

The worst thing that made it impossible for the South to advance and take over Northern realms wasn't the Northern army BTW.

It was the peasant armies that showed up in hateful regions that wiped out any small force we sent anywhere.  And needing to organize a 10k army to "raid" enemy regions or hold conquered regions is an exercise in futility.

That is what stalled the Southern offensive.

Yea the stupid peasant mobs of Viseu sprung the offensive into Eponllyn. Because they hadn't done their ambassador shennanigans there yet.  ;D
