Yup...

That was the error that Cagil made that turned Minas Leon favorable towards toward Tara.  That and some of my messages and notes that I was looking to find a way to return Shanandoah to Minas Leon.  But as he said talk is easy and actions are hard.

And we aren't going to get a chance to see what happens there now.  But one way or another, whether through secession from Tara or as a gift to Minas Leon, I was pretty much decided that that city would leave Tara in the future.  Just didn't know how...;)

I actually had very few hard plans.  I had a basic idea I wanted to see but I didn't trust anybody enough to tell them what it was because I didn't know who would betray me.  And Tara was too weak to survive something like that.

So I took the dual strategies of breaking up other alliances while sending Taran troops into Minas Leon as practice.  Maneuver lessons.  Warfare training.  Not that I ever said that at the time.  It would have been an insult even worse than what I'd already given Minas Leon.  But Tara needed the practice.  We could barely field a 6k army when I became Tyrant.  So I practiced the army and then we...well...

The last year has been a wild ride...:)

Not so sure about error from a player's perspective I think they did it on purpose. But IG that was a grave error yeah.

And pff, even Caergoth had a bigger army than that. I was very surprised to see how weak CE's army had become though...

It was an IC decision for an OOC problem (not having war) that I and several others had a HUGE problem with.

It wasn't part of a bigger plan to alienate Minas Leon (and with it prob Rieleston) from CE, preparing for strife?

It was already agreed that Darka were about to being created. Azzal and Massilion would have seceded and form Darka.

Just few hours before announcment about the sinking i had sent message to Talerium Prime Minister if he had discussed yet about it with Tara & Rielston.

Oh wells.. .Let see if Darka will be created somewhere else.

For the record, I consequently never got around to sending that letter... I figured it no longer mattered. :/

Will it be recreated in the East Continent? I just joined the only realm at war on the island and I hope the new realms stir up some fun.

Then I must agree with Medron that it was a very poor move from CE's side. I though it was part of a bigger plan, but apparently not. Then the announcement was CE's biggest mistake yeah.

I would judge the three great mistakes we made thusly:

Tara - Keeping Shanandoah

Cagil - Declaring war on Minas Leon

Strombran - Dealing dishonestly with Suville


Each of those three actions greatly weakened the nation that performed them, even if it gave us temporary perceived power...

Well, at the last encounter CE fielded a mobile army of 20k CS.  We (by that I mean General Tharan) made some maneuvers to beat them in the first round - but after the second round we (Tara) were annihilated and CE ha 9 k CS left.

In the latter day Atamara, I wouldn't call that a weak army. They just needed some proper motivation, and a play war with Minas Leon didn't turn them on.

You have no idea how much I've had to try and convince people this could/would happen. It'd get even bigger if the island wasn't going to be an epic bathtub. Which, in some ways, means it's a good thing this is happening.
