  • Yes, there would certainly be a lot of conflict between those who claimed to inherit the Romulan Protectorate, and those who felt otherwise. And when the Themisine Councils want something done that they can't or don't want to risk Pure lives for, then hearkening back to the Foederatis practices of old, they would quite simply throw money at Forsaken packs to do the dirty work. Thus, Varangian Uratha can easily make their fortunes. Wealthy Forsaken, and useful Forsaken, are welcomed within the Themisine Protectorate, but they are not allowed on the Councils, and are thus excluded from ruling the...

  • Ok, had a bit of time to brainstorm this, so here's how it would go if this was my game.

    In the late 3rd Century AD the Romulan Protectorate is stretched thin across the world, and the Magna Mater, huge, bloated and self cannibalizing, is raving mad. The Protectorate separates with the Roman Empire. This has the fortunate side-effect of quelling the Magna Mater's agony for a brief respite in the local hisil. The Eastern Protectorate is led by a more equitable arrangement of Fire-Touched and Ivory Claws, with the Poenii claiming authority over all matters spiritual, and the Claws over...

  • Nah, not the Protectorate's last hurrah - the Urdeshga's last hurrah. The Romulan protectorate lasts as long as them Empire does (in one form or another). The Marisi lose power, status, and wealth, while the Saturi exult in their victory with their new friends the Poenii. But the Fire-Touched never get regarded as highly as the Iron Masters were in the days of the Urdeshga - the Saturi, having gained all the power, are loath to start sharing it with anyone ever again. Of course, the Poeni don't necessarily want to become 'the Marisi' anyway, they get their wn power from influencing the Ivory Claws...

  • I can't recall off-hand the exact turn of events I had in mind at the time of writing. That said, the rise of Augustus (and Imperial Rome) was the tipping point, and so around the time of his death, or soon after. The council survives, of course (into the present day, ultimately, though the form and rituals change over time fairly significantly) as the Council of Eagles. The Marisi are out-manouvered politically and ejected from the council, whereupon they form the Lodge of Lightning (which might have formed unofficially prior to the council's split, and again, survives to the modern day, changed...

  • For what it's worth (ie: nothing ), in my personal timeline, the Council of Eagles and Lightning would be long since broken up by the time of the Byzantine Empire. The Byzantine Uratha would have their own structures, founded upon a history of the Urdeshga Protectorate model, but profoundly different.

    YMMV....
