North Vs. South
« Topic Start: May 01, 2014, 06:07:25 PM »
No, this is not another mysterious poll thread. ;) I just didn't know what else to call a thread about the current war.

The recent battle in Ipsosez was pretty good. The southerners had a 2-1 advantage in overall CS and in infantry, but only brought 5 siege engines. Woops. After 7 rounds of battle, the southerners captured the field. Unfortunately, my character got wounded, and it got worse at the turn change. :(

This is turning out to be a pretty good war.

I thought the south was down and out.  This last assault was surprising.

I want Haul!   This war is proving to be much more costly for me than I thought it would be.

This assault on Ipsosez was well planned. They had lots of troops, Arcaea was nowhere to be seen, and they only had two early arrivals despite it being about a four turn move.

High Marshal,

My congratulations on your appointment, I truly believe you can turn the situation to our side. Now the questions you have asked:

1. We didn't have many siege engines at the battle of Ipsosez, mostly present were of Kindaran origin. Instead we used big catapults to launch our men into our enemies ranks atop the fortification, swords drawn and ready to plunge into our enemies. It was my idea though, an alternative to arrows, bolts, spears and stones but it didn't work out too well.

2. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

3. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Recently they even started producing a strange but delicious food called "Ice Cream" or something similar. It also comes in different exotic flavours, the hottest around these parts are Usul Mixed Monster Madness, Angela Apple Agony and Bofeng Brined Brujas (OOC: Bruja means witch in spanish). I strongly believe Cathay would become a leading economy on FEI with this ice cream exports and us trio would become richer everyday for advertising our respective flavours. Mine is already famous in Anacan.

With regards,

Angela Windblack

This is why Cathay didn't need many siege towers. Cheers!

Just stay alive and kicking, raise your voice when its needed. Through reason you can show the mistakes of others, something violence can't do.

I don't break rules, I bend them- a lot.

What is the end point of this war for both sides? Arcaea has the majority of the continent under it's thumb, I'd hate to see it go the way of Atamara.

Cathay will have to get a better General if you intend that to happen.

I think our General is doing a fine job when you consider the odds.

Then he'll have to better than a fine job. It's not easy when you've got three key fortresses to defend, but there isn't much room for error.

The Empire has offered Cathay and Kindara plenty of chances to surrender, but apparently they'd rather fight to the death. We're happy to oblige.

Once the Empire has the entire Far East, we don't intend to let things stagnate. There are a few ideas for fostering war amongst the Empire realms.

I think you mean Zonasa's done well despite the odds ;D

Cathay and Kindara have systematically thrown away every chance they had, military and diplomatic alike.

As for what happens after...well, let's just say that Velax isn't the only one with ideas.

Personally, I hope that the island doesn't turn into a "whatever Arcaea says" scenario. I've already gotten some hints of that.
