How about new realms called West Sirion and East Sirion?

Someone once tried it but no one went with him. Poor guy. No one in Sirion wanted to split the realm into two.

I can't really see why anyone would.

I was under the impression that West Sirion lasted for a while. The original rulers got overthrown though and it morphed into Avamar, which Sirion eventually destroyed.

Sirion is close to impenetrable, with the only way across the river is barred by cities (Sirion and Avamar), and the northern passage can be quickly covered by an army moving from the capital. It's not totally impossible, though - Fontan managed to take Avamar once during the war.

True, taking Avamar was an immense undertaking and holding it was a logistical nightmare. However later when Fontan's military was already weakened by the Civil War we still raided as far as Glinmar on two separate occasions and that was with the military command actively opposed to the ventures. With their support such a strategy might have borne more substantial fruit.

A realm in control of Ashforth and with a willingness to use all forms of warfare in combination could certainly force the passage and do serious damage. It would still require good planning, a large element of luck and a disciplined military.

It is sad when a realm is made fun of being weak when they used to be the most powerful, and was feared by everyone. Imagine if the events that caused Fontan to lose it's strength never occured? Maybe there would have been a very different map than there is today. You could even go as far as thinking, what if Ibladesh wouldn't have been littered with inactive nobles and it kept Perdan at bay until a HUGE mistake occured on the Perdanese map.

Did katayanna lock the Fontan thread because it started talking about Fontan's end? That's a bit lame...

Some people take it very personally when a realm dies. I'm rather sad myself as Fontan's classic period was fantastic fun but all things come to an end eventually.

She should keep her personal feelings to herself, then. It's not very good form when admins use their powers for biased reasons.

Katayanna isn't an admin. The creator of a thread is capable of locking it. Still incredibly lame, though, in this case.
