Vetheriss takes Western Norrasjo Military Conflict in Corive | World Anvil

Vetheriss takes Western Norrasjo

What kind of fool does the Arle of Vetheriss take me for? "Your people of Western Norrasjo begged for my protection while you remain determined to not side with either true faction of this war."
Bah, I can't believe this. Do I look so stupid as to believe this isn't a land-power grab pretending to have the Capitolist's authority to act?
Vetheriss has grown nearly a quarter of its size - where is next, Felkhath? The people of Felkhath love Arle Great-Cook; they'd never ask to leave his Arling.
I'd like to see what excuse Felkhath is given for when this happens to them.


Norrasjo left Vetheriss over a century ago - you're not an elf or dwarf to hold a grudge for so long, and if you were of orc descent like I, you'd be on your fleet and shooting my harbors.

Oh wait, I forgot, you don't have a fleet. Have you tried your army?

Hahahaa, that mocking letter. I love it.   I do have a feeling that Vetheriss may not being entirely truthful when he said they begged for protection, though.

I'm glad that's being carried through, because that's a feeling I want to reinforce. Between what's been taken from Norrasjo and Felkhath, Vetheriss is at about 150% the land it had when the Unification Wars came to an end.
I'm working on understanding why the Arle support the faction they do, and what motives they're using their respective factions for.

I love what you've accomplished in so few words! You've given some real thought to the politics behind it all - which are often just as important as the battle itself. Well done!

Wars don't usually just happen, usually it's a case of Group A wants X, and Group B isn't giving it to Group A because they want or need it too. X is usually some kind of resource (physical, psychological, spiritual), and using that mindset, I felt like it grounded the conflict - what are they fighting for?
I fully admit, if I knew this was up on the short list, I would have gone back to flesh out some of the details after writing more about the regions and people involved.
