Thats not what I heard. I heard that Nazca wants to attack you next, because the undead are the easiest way to get into the sea. And right now in the early part of the game, no one else can, so it would just be Ys vs Nazca. Crippled by the poor income of the oceans, Nazca can walk right over the weak PD that Ys has. Nazca then confided in me that he intends to preach Ys into extinction rather than assault a home castle with fire breathing cavalry.
BUT I also heard that Bandar and Caelum were in talks to cripple Nazca, and the roll up Tien Chi. With sneaky monkeys and map move 3 flyers, the FROZEN BANANA team could take over most of Nazca in a turn or two, and then subjugate the few remaining provinces at their leisure.
BUT WAIT! A flying monkey told me of a plan by Eiru to stealth several armies of thugs and slingers onto the Ys island. Presumably guarded by a massive indie throne to the north, Ys would never expect an attack from that direction. Then, Eiru would be able to attack Ys from the north and south, raiding and sailing to take out any province that offers resistance.
HOWEVER, a butt scratching demon whispered plans of attack while he was sipping grog. According to him, demons were going to attack Pan, marching a massive army up the coast, crushing everything before him. With massed archers, fire, and cold, the minotaurs and satyrs would be defeated before they ever got close.
THERES MORE! A drunken Seraph told me that the current struggle between Nazca and TC is a sham. The combat is to merely gain experience in how to place armies, and script them. Once they are satisfied, they will fall on the unsuspecting neighbors, who have been lulled by the fighting. Truly this is the real reason for the fighting we see today.
