    Noble War?!

    I intended originally to study the Art Of War. Daniel E-mail however brought up some points that I wish to address. Nobles became the "crime of society" at the expense of the common people, it was peasants who provided food for Nobles while( Note I strictly speaking of European Nobles since I am not to familiar with Asian or Middle Eastern Upper classes during the medieval era) broke their backs on fields and suffered due to lack of food and unsanitary conditions. The nobles in every sense of the word "Owned" them. And as for them knowing their abilities I can assure this was not so! Today for example how would you explain Vietnam or Afghanistan? Trained soldiers well equipped and in great numbers were beaten back by children and farmers using homemade weapons. Nobility for me is the courage to stand use your heart and head when violence seems easiest I think Shakespeare said it best when he wrote "Let loose the dogs of war" War is chaos in the flesh with rules frantically being written and rewritten on the spot..... Ask Saddam to fight fair : )

    Samwise I think truly understood my original posting and its purpose. To the Vos and Rujrik guerilla warfare has always been a part of their culture and it served them well against the greatest empire in Anuires history...

    Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice
    From what I've tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favour fire
    But if it had to perish twice
    I think I know engouh of hate
    To say that ice
    Is also great
    Abd would suffice

    Of course Guerilla forces have been defeated historically - in the Boer
    War and in Malaysia (mainly due to the fact that the Gurkhas were way,
    way scarier than the Commuist Guerillas).

    Yes. War is horrible. I suspect those people o the list who've served in
    the military know this better than the rest of us. But this is a fantasy
    game. With kights in shining armour. So it's possible for Good
    characters to go to war, because that's the way that the world works.
