My roommates play Khador and Cygnar, and, as I'm sure you can imagine, I am routinely treated to "Get off our land!" on one side and "It's not your land!" on the other. Being a Legion player, I'm not too strong on the history involved (we're mostly concerned with snacking on dragons, and neither Khador nor Cygnar have any dragons to interest us). So, before I take sides on this, I thought I'd check in with Red HQ and see if I can get to the truth of it.
The story, as I'm given to understand it, goes something like this:
- Khador and Cygnar and some other, unimportant people hold a meeting.
- At the meeting, everyone agrees on national boundary lines on a map, and everyone signs a treaty (Corvis?) saying that these lines are where things are and everyone's okay with that.
- Since that treaty only ran to the end of the signatories lineage, one year it came up that no bloodline had male heirs, and, the treaty thus invalidated, Khador opens fire on Llael/Ord/Cygnar.
What I don't understand is why Khador would have signed off on the treaty in the first place, if it was unfair? What piece of the historical/political puzzle am I missing?
