Lionel Foxter said: "They have gold and believe that it is the power. Soon we will show then the black gold and we will burn everything." These words was just a financial declaration of one of the leaders of the Institute of search and development in on meeting in Galaria, saying about the commercial power of the oil. But, "burn everthing", sounds looks a declaration of war to the other realms. But in the end it become a great weapon to the war.
From the bridge and beyond the mountains is possible see the huge towers of oil extraction burning in the cold land. From the east they started to call Tristania of the Empire of Fire, and the Lions, how they are called in theyr lands, with the power of the oil and fire, Tristania is one of the biggest empire of Egos.
Actualy Tristania is passing by a political crisis, where the succersors are undefined still the civil war started. With that, a new country was just born, the real blood and some real knights moved out of the realm borders to form a resistance, strong enought to keep the war active.
In the other side, Valdorn just invested billions to expand the railroad btw Hirkania and now is passing for hard dealing with the elves, tryng get some land to pass with the trains. But, still Tristania not fix the home, they cant do other agressives threats. Some realms in secret try to keep this war in Tristania active, trying to prevent that the war against the elves from Veloria, what can be called a greatest war that egos was faced since The War of the Brethren, almos 300 years ago. Well, looking for this point, never a war will be compared with that is about to start.
Almost all Realms of Egos will be involved in this conflict, even taking off the peace of the holy monks of Meru. Right now, a ruler called by the ppl as "The Black Knight" is fixing the things in Tristania, wut make much more closer the great war against the World. Its being called "The War of the Iron".
