Note:  I haven't read the previous 33 pages so if there was 10 pages on this, sorry and I will go read those.

So question.  What's everyone's opinion on how long the Protectorate is going to last?   Will they join the Nova Cats get reborn?  Will they stay with the FWL?  Will they Join Forces with Alaric?   Will they become the Leagues new Andorrans?

I think the Clan Protectorate will last.  I hope the Sea Foxes use their position to slowly take over the FWL.

They have a long way to go towards this, but it can be done.

The League has a good amount of Clan integration.  First you have the Protectorate which has seats/votes in parliament.  Then you have the Sea Foxes involved heavily in the League economy, they got their foot in the door for that based on the Protectorate joining the neo League.  They even executed some semi-sanction policy on their own when they dealt with the Regulans.  Finally, you had Jessika hand them over ComStar's assets as part of a takeover.  IMO they come right after the Ghost Bear Dominion and Raven Alliance as far as IS/Clan integration . . . granted it is a big step between the those two and the League, but it is another chasm between the League & LC/DC let alone the CC/FS.

Honestly, most of it is going to come down to what happens in Empire Alone.

I think Kisho and Co will return from wherever they currently are.  He'll submit himself and his troops to serve the ilClan. 

Alaric will turn that offer to reverse the Abjuration and see the Nova Cats Reborn if Kisho can turn the Protectorate to his cause.

Kisho will do what he did with Kev Rosse and call for a meeting either Kisho will fight for the right to command the Nova Cats or he'll be assassinated leading to his forces merging with the Protectorates

The Nova/ Spirit Cats in the Protectorate in service of the ilClan, I think the Sea Foxes forces in the Protectorate are too involved in the running of the state and instead of remaining could end up rolled into the Reborn Clan

If Kisho is assassinated let's say by the Andruiens or Regulans... then the Nova/Spirit Cats have a new target

I'm not convinced the Nova Cats are born again.  I think the Spirit Cats have made too much of a mark to be lost and perhaps the last heroic days of the Nova Cats were just that

If the FWL joins the new Star League, they will need to allocate part of their forces to the Star League defense forces. Who is better than the Clan Protectorate troops for the Star League founded by the clans?
And Spirit Cats = Nova –°ats. Two different ways of development of one society.

Nova Cats! 

Move to the Clan Protectorate!  Forget canon, and take your table top games here.  Plenty of room to grow. 

And with the re-emergence of the Smoke Jaguars, as well as the Falcons being cut down to size, plenty of fair Clan competition now exists.

Need equipment?  Spina Khanate is here for your every need.  Have no fear about that.  Plenty of Omnis to go around.

If the FWL joins the new Star League

*retches*

This would convince me to abandon the faction when even literally breaking up the faction didn't.

My 4th Regulan Hussar company appreciates the Supernova 5 taken as isorla from Marik.  I look forward to your factory releasing a 5b where the Coolant Pods are swapped for a RHS, so the captured SRN can be converted.

Anyone else play with one?

We've been in a Star League twice before, we can stomach a third go around, and look how the first wound up, can see hidden wars springing up again, especially in the league.

Revisiting an old discussion,
I was playing around with TRO Golden Century units recently and made an interesting discovery...although I'll be highly surprised if no one else has noticed it by now. Did you know that if you replace the Qasar's engine with an XXL it's actually at maximized tonnage for the thrust? Sure it now costs something like 80 billion, but hey, if the Diamond Sharks want to showcase the things AND gain some good will with the 'Cats in the Protectorate? Fooling around with a design, may end up posting it in the appropriate forum later once I decide on a name. Considering calling it either the 'Yi' or 'Perry' currently. The 'LeMay' if I want to be extra vindictive in naming it. Can you strafe with plasma cannon?

Bringing the Vision Quest, fully modernized, back to production would be a nice symbolic gesture too, although I'm less clear what I'd do with that. It's a pretty solid design, even without all the traditional weight saving gear, and leaving it that way actually makes it a decent 'budget' choice for Clan gear.

Both of those would be nice to see the Qasar with Laser reflective armour the Vision Quest with Ballistic Reinforced just to annoy the Combine
