I read the Auran Empire primer a few days ago and I am assuming the map hexes are 24 miles.
Anyway the Skysostan are invading and they are basically the Huns. Ok cool.
The problem is they are over 1000 miles away across 3 nations (Somirea, Kemesh, Opelenea) and you have the narrow sea there as well.
The Empire can apparently field 300k troops. Obviously a few of them would be on garrison duty. The border betewwn the empire proper though narrows down to a 24 mile hex near the Menari Mountains near Opelenea/Nicea border.
Opelenea seems to be similar in size to northern France. The empire seems to have lost lost its northern provinces and has fought Somirea. If the empire is in decline why would it ship most of its available legions to Somirea which would be equivilent to the Romans trying to invade Britannia in the 5th century or even 6th for the Byzantines.
Are the PCs supposed to go and create a new domain down in the SE section of the Auran empire or save the Empire? If you hit level 14 would seizing the throne be a better idea or even gtting poplar support from the legions?
Setting up a new domain in civized ara is also more profitable so I assume that narrow point in western nicea would count as civilized or borderland area for purposes of a domain?
