Merlin has consistently said he is not there for Charis. He is there to get humanity back on a technological track to fight the Gabba when that day comes again.

I believe he's said he's there to use Charis for his own ends. And frankly he still needs to use them. The Church of Charis Doctrine is the best chance of undoing Langhorn's work.

A much more active Senjin networt could be a blast to read!

Imagine Senjin Mabb showing up to lend a hand. Nothing helps morale like discovering that you have your own personal boogieman on your side. Those regulars would know all about Senjin Mabb.

Umm, no. That is the Dahak forum.

A few thoughts:

1- Rainbow Waters is going nowhere near North Harchong. They'll at first refuse to take the Mighty Host back, and when forced to will send them to South Harchong. That in turn will likely lead to South Harchong breaking away and forming its own kingdom/nation as the industrialists and the Mighty Host unite. With North Harchong not accepting the changes, the COGA will likely support South Harchong as long as they are loyal to the COGA. In effect, South Harchong would slot in between Dohlar and Desnair in terms of capabilities (at first) with some promise.

2- I could see the senjins providing "spot" help to various North Harchong rebel factions - especially if any of them are disciplined and not prone to the slaughter of civilians. They will be carefully selected, however, and the aid provided carefully metered out. Long term strategy is to get the population of Harchong to accept the senjins as real senjins and, so that when the Return happens they do not automatically follow whatever it is that Returned.

3- I don't see Charis intervening in any rebellions unless it directly affects their safety/security/commerce. Instead, I could see Charis offering "mini-Marshall" plans. Contingent, of course, on Charis being granted certain rights (trade, religious, etc?). I could see Dohlar especially, with the new leadership they have, jumping at the chance to get a hand in quickly rebuilding as well as reducing bad feelings between them and Charis. And Delfarahk, of course, has had some bad times and may also be interested in getting on Charis' good side and improving relations and its economy. This would spread Charis' ideas and innovations while engendering good will and creating a more connected world - which is good for both Charis and Merlin.

Good info there. I wish there was a more up to date map on that website.

There are more recent partial maps in Downloads.

Unfortunately, Himself hasn't let anyone have a full map since MTT. Presumably because he's now filled in enough detail we would be able to deduce too much of what's coming next.

"With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 per cent. will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 per cent. certain will produce eagerness; 50 per cent., positive audacity; 100 per cent. will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 per cent., and there is not a crime at which it will scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.

If turbulence and strife will bring a profit, it will freely encourage both."
