regarding the civil war:

Power Rating:Edit

1. Surtova, 2. Garess, 3. Restov, 4. Lodovka (overall; but 6th if sea units are taken out of the calculus), 5, Lebeda, 6. Medvyed (but 1. on defense), and 7. orlovsky/Xanadu interchangeable on this level.

-Surtova could easily crush Orlovsky or Xanadu; and if Medvyed assaults them they'd be easily defeated.

-Garess is about 1/2 as powerful as Surtova in the field, but their commanders are very conservative about going into battle. High unit costs for the field.

-Lodovkans could sink all of Surtova's tonnage, but don't wield a good army-the army's morale is very poor and they're likely to desert (more used to the sea). But they strategically could sack the Surtovan's home Port Ice, which would demoralize the Surtovans and the Lodovkans could be kingmakers as to who will rule. They dislike the Surtovans, but don't have any allies among the other houses. They are proud of Jang and Xanadu. Chance to desert in the field.
(Jang's house)

-Lebedans have the best horsemen and are competent; would give Restov trouble. Low unit costs for the field.
(Morgan's house)

-Medvyedevs are good in the forest and on defense; they've been preparing for the war for several years, but they can't wield a useful army in the field.

-Most Orlovskys are in prison or in Xanadu in exile.


Surtova and Lebeda are allies (Surtovans have been promoting them and giving them favors) and are unlikely to split.

Surtova and Garess are close but Garess is also close to Medvyed. Garess will stick with Surtova if it means keeping Restov in the fold. House Garess believes in Unity in Brevoy above all.

Orlovsky and Medvyed are allies to the end.

Restov wants to revolt, which everyone opposes, but Orlovsky is desperate so they would side with Restov if it meant the furthering of Orlovsky interests.

Lodovka might stab Surtovans in the back, if the opportunity is ripe.
