    Which requires the same things. And only elves seems to have enough of
    both. I have seen an elven nation destroy a human nation within two
    actions. Makes me wonder how in hells name the elves were ever defeated!

    (Besides, any mage I currently DM on the PBEM is of high enough level to
    cast the spell, has got enough sources to cast the thing and also the
    backing of an army -that is Erik Danig, the Fae, Rhuobhe, Bacaele (he
    will have it anyway)-. Seems not to be that rare, now does it?)

    Hey, that sounds quite interesting. Can you explain exactly how?

    And while I'm at it, does anyone else care to share any other interesting
    Birthright strategies with me? I really could use em, for while I have
    been DMin for almost 10 years now, I've only recently started DMin a
    Birthright campaign and I still need to learn a lot of things like how to
    effectively manage NPC domains.
    Thank you so much...

    Thank you very much. You have confirmed my beliefs about how the humans
    won the elven-human wars. It is simply ridiculous that the humans would
    defeat the elven nations without direct divine intervention.
