The civil service has identified five major conjunctions of the Sentinel Gate that are expected to be available during the coming summit.
On Saturday, two major conjunctions have been identified - but the heroes of the Empire will only be able to take advantage of one of them. Both open in Redoubt. One opens near the fishing town of Elos, the other near the hospital spire of Evenstar. The civil service predicts that either of these conjunctions could be used to head off one of the two large barbarian raiding forces.
On Sunday, three conjunctions have been identified that will allow Imperial heroes to engage the Jotun - but again only one can be taken advantage of. The first opens in Liathaven and offers an opportunity to get the Black Thorns moving through the Paths of Lan Thúven, potentially helping to get the army out of southern Liathaven. The second also opens in Liathaven and offers an opportunity to support the Black Thorns - potentially offering them assistance in holding their beachead in Western Scout if they receive assistance from other Imperial armies. The third conjunction opens in the Mournwold, and offers an opportunity to secure information about the Jotun’s plans for their campaign along the western front.
By the time of the Winter Solstice summit, the civil service will have completed reports for each of the five major conjunctions, which will be presented the the generals during the Muster. The final decision about which two major conjunctions to exploit, and who will take part in the battles, is the heavy responsibility of the generals alone.
Okay this is a bit new. We are still tweaking the concept a little but going forward we plan to provide information ahead of the Summit as to what major conjunctions will be available (you can learn a bit more about them here → https://www.profounddecisions.co.uk/empire-wiki/Sentinel_Gate#Major_Conjunctions ).
This is public information, which you can as always know as much or as little about as you like.
You can read this on the main wiki at the bottom of the page here → https://www.profounddecisions.co.uk/empire-wiki/380YE_Winter_Solstice_winds_of_war#Major_Conjunctions
I’ve also added a short summary of the situation at the top of the page under Overview which you can read here → https://www.profounddecisions.co.uk/empire-wiki/380YE_Winter_Solstice_winds_of_war#Overview
Tomorrow or hopefully Friday at the lastest our Synod Overhaul is going live. There’ll be posts about this as it happens. Mostly its been about making explicit how things work on the field, although there are a few tweaks here and there.
Then, after the late booking deadline at the weekend, we start rolling out the Winds of Fortune. I’ll see you there.
