Father was always so full of hope and loyal to the end, but I fear the dynasty of old has come to an end. Any pretender claiming to be an heir now is likely just a fraud. Instead of putting our faith in men and women who have long since passed, I will instead provide my people with a new hope. It will be my banner that shall hang over the imperial throne one day. Our time has come.
Opportunism is a monarchist belief shared by Remnant restorationists
who believe that the fallen Rahyamin Empire
and its laws and institutions must be restored under the guidance and leadership of a strong new leader. Adherents of this ideology consider the House of Rahyamin
the primary cause behind the empire’s downfall and that the rise of a new dynasty could restore the realm to greatness. Opportunism is widespread among the Remnant since most people consider the old dynasty extinct and therefore, legitimists
ideas aren’t taken as seriously. The ideology appeals to ambitious warlords with dreams of power and glory.
One of the most prominent countries whose leaders could be described to follow opportunist principles is the Principality of Sabba
. Their demographics have forced them to adopt a more tolerant stance than other restorationists would accept, but in every other regard, they fit the criteria. Imperial law
reigns supreme and while the previous prince still hoped to find the lost heirs to the Rahyamin throne, the new ruler, Idril Ei Asul
, has abandoned their legitimist ways and instead dreams of his own dynasty’s greatness.
Over in the Sunless Paths
, opportunism has recently taken root in the Lordship of Eqilidi
. Nihair Kadalib
, the ruler of the young realm, has announced his ambitions to challenge the Ahlaydabil Preservation Committee
for dominance in the region. Although outnumbered, Kadalib has proven himself as a mastermind on the field of battle and his small but agile forces continue to outmanoeuvre their foes.
