They are followers of Sartan, so they have big swords. It's a metaphorical mountain, to compensate for things.

Fixed that for ya!

Horus was actually partly responsible. He coveted the ruler's seat, and didn't like the instant influence Arella had.

Ha! I forgot he ran against Arella when she finally had the prestige to run. That makes sense.

Pretty sure AJ had a character named Remi, actually. He was still playing when I quit. I came back and he was gone. He's shown up twice since I returned, unpaused characters and had them autopause again.

Arella's current bounty I'm still convinced was placed there by one of Aenilia's multiple failed rulers around the time that she first returned. Other than that, I don't think she's ever been on the board and certainly hasn't ever been assaulted. Which has always struck me as odd, since she's always been a polarizing figure (even when she's staunchly neutral) - in two different FEI eras now.

Far East Island / Re: Arcaean Empire

And now is the critical stage.  You have reached the point where you are big enough to trounce everything except the rest of the island...But the rest of the island can, at least in theory, stop you.  And unless the rest of the island is stupid (which it's not, not with Galiard around, can't speak for the rest), they realize that.  This is where the politicking is going to go absolutely nuts while the Empire tries to stabilize and prepare, and various other groups try to figure out if they can combine.

In related news, which may or may not have any real significance at all (depending on my continued interest level), Arella is on the move. Aenilia is not, but she is.

Pft, Morgan wants Ohnar West and Sorraine to kill each other, he is not a fan of either realm.

I just know that other people may be supporting them from other realms.  Or were thinking of doing so, I don't know if they actually are.

I've not heard of anything official, but I'd imagine certain families are helping their own.

You're assuming that Arella/Aenilia was the only person Jenred had discussed that with and received a positive response from (aside from the colony, which was a given).  That's a very interesting assumption.

Hopefully, at some point I will finally be able to freaking move and have the time to play power-politics on the FEI again.  Rebuilding all of those connections will obviously take time and probably be impossible in some cases [...]  I anticipated the next big war after that would either destroy the empire or bring the entire continent under it.

Timing was everything, at least for Arella. You could still give her a religious nudge in a similar direction, but the imminent threat would be more localized and er... human.

Aenilia could always join the Arcaean Empire. Guaranteed protection, so you could fight anyone you wanted, then. ;)

Velax has always been too gruff for that to become a reality with Arella. But I don't think anyone knows how close this was (even in-realm) to being a reality on some level if Jenred had stayed on the throne.

I don't know that I'd compare GA to Switzerland.  Switzerland may be neutral, but they had the most respected mercenaries in late medieval times, and I understand that their military is still rather badass today.

If there were an in-game way that some of our nobles could act as mercenaries and not act on behalf of the realm, I'm certain they'd jump on it. Even if it were just to make coin.  ::)

And yeah... the largest realm tends to find themselves involved in the most activity by virtue of being adjacent to everything.

Well, everyone likes to make fun of Switzerland too.  ;) In all seriousness, GA's position makes perfect sense out of character and, for the most part, in character. Since most of us nobles are egotistical and quickly angered, we're bound to get mad at GA when they don't do what we want them to do though.

Oh, I know. I think we're at a point where we'd rather be compared to Switzerland with lots of money and nothing to do than to France and surrender as soon as the fighting starts.  ;D

The part that most people don't think about is that GA's largest stretch of border is adjacent to the realm with the largest military force, by far. Aenilia right now has two options- fight alongside Arcaea or fight only when Arcaea doesn't. Picking a fight against Arcaea would spell destruction for the realm.

It's easy to take snipe shots from further away at GA's stance. But in all honesty, I'm beginning to understand why Switzerland chose the way they did. The one time we tried to flex recently, Arcaea flexed at triple the strength.

GA (when it was TA) used to take the wars to the other realms in an effort to avoid them ever happening on TA's soil. Those days, and those nobles, are long gone unfortunately. And yes, it was always thinly veiled as religious/righteous indignation.

Seems that GA was the great benefited here... That 2000 gold should be more than enough to play around with...

Probably also the realm that had the most expendable gold with nothing to use it on already.

the least we should have is a choice to retain old interface or use new one.

IIRC, that's not going to be possible without retaining duplicates on the server of every single message/event that occurs in the game.

I have problems with this.

To some extent, at least, I am conceptually against taking away messages from people who have had access to them, especially when they were the ones they were originally sent to (ie, they were full members of the channel at the time the messages were sent, as opposed to simply gaining access to the messages after the fact).

There's also the opportunity to force someone out of office purely so that they can no longer evidentially prove certain things were said. I see this as great for schemers, but overall bad for business.

Can we perhaps have some sort of a "save to Personal" option that essentially copy-pastes messages into a character's private channel?
