    Reminds me of the entire Europe during the two world wars.
    And the imperials seem like the USA, practically taking control of the allied forces and fighting wars on others' territories, while their lands are never pillaged or burnt.

    We might control them against the demons or the Golden Guard. Maybe...

    I think King Dorten will try to prove that he is Gardon's ally, not his puppet, but he is already entangled on Gardon's webs.

    Lor and Isalmur are the perfect example for this, currently controlled by nobody and just begging for someone to get them.
    Rengal, Kerrel and Salria are like Ethiopia.Independent coutries that Gardon can turn his sights on to expand Zyainor later on.

    King Gardon.
    King Dorten doesn't seem the type, unless he is somehow corrupted...that or Gardon could brainwash him, thus ruining his reputation and making everyone wish for Gardon to take control over all kingdoms.

    And I just gave Shar an idea:D

    We know he was a tyrant and a murderer, but do you really think Gardon would be like him? Do you think he will slaughter the population of his kingdom just for pleasure of seeing death. He will sacrifice the population for victory, but won't feel joy in it. I just wonder he says he will sacrifice anything, but would he be willing to sacrifice himself?

    The script for the 2nd human book is complete so i doubt Shar will change it based on 1 comment. However you may have given him an idea about a future spin-off campaign.

    I spared the dark elves in ch 6, but the dark elves in ch 9 were taking orders from Merizyl the ascendant (the spider lady)

    Sir Edoarus appears in the intro cinematic for mission 9, not the actual mission
    I dont believe he made any in-game appearances so far, only in cinematics

    Regarding the factions.

    1
    I think the least evil are probably the royals, since their sole goal is to defend their land as well as lives from the demon invasion that has threaten to take everything from them.

    2
    Retka’s rebellion, because although what Retka did wasn’t right, he was basically tricked into it by van durce and chances are he wouldn’t have done it otherwise

    I agree with the royals.

    However Retka's rebellion not, because they attacked, pillaged and opressed villages, and I more than certain that van Durce didn't order them to do that.

    @LISBOAH
    They were tricked into rebelling by Van Durce, and seeing how formidable the ironfist was they chose to use all the tools available at their disposal (kinda like what gardon does) Im not saying their hands are clean, but they're likely cleaner than lots of the other factions, atleast in my opinion

    They weren't tricked. They knew all too well they could die, but since they were power hungry they didn't give a damn. They were pawns and nothing more.

    Least evil:

    Larine : she did nothing wrong, tried to stop Gardon from having his influence on salana, and tried to rid the world of Bryant

    The Royals: only tried to defend themselves and their lives

    Progotist the smoking: he repeatedly got attacked for no reason, did nothing wrong

    Why even put the firelord in that poll, all he was designed to be was fodder for the armies, he had no faction, he simply comes back because Shar doesn't want to invent anyone new to replace him
