Under No Banners
“This is a political war and it calls for discrimination in killing. The best weapon for killing would be a knife, but I’m afraid we can’t do it that way. The worst is an airplane. The next worst is artillery. Barring a knife, the best is a rifle — you know who you’re killing.”
—Lt. Col John Paul Vann
The war in Solenir has already dragged on for decades, first between goblin and eladrin, and now between the victors of that first war, and the Bellic supported Kingdom of Solenir. Some things remain the same; large battles are few and far between, the jungle makes moving armies difficult. Ambush, skirmish, and constant raiding characterize this war. Bellic and Royalist tactics are based around the use of firepower, either large formations of men when they can be brought to bear, or magic when they cannot. Chaos is much weaker, and retreats when pressed, instead focusing their efforts on a guerrilla conflict in the countryside.
So far the war has been confined to South Solenir. The only major target in North Solenir is Dong Nyzaal, and as a half-drow city, attacking it would dangerously escalate tensions between the two major powers. The forces of Chaos are not strong enough to attack en-mass, preferring to infiltrate individual warbands over the rugged borders.
