So what happens when Alaric and the new Star League goes to war with the Combine (to start with)? I don't imagine he'd look kindly on the friendly neighborhood Khanate enabling his opposition. Will he put restrictions on with whom they can do business? And if he does do we think they'll actually listen, brazenly ignore his demands, or continue to sell to anyone and everyone on the down-low? Maybe it'll depend on the Khanate, which has its own interesting implications in terms of Clan cohesion.

Thoughts?

As I see it, he will need to make a deal with SF that makes sense to them. If SF stopped dealing with DC it would mean that some khanate (in this case Fox Khanate) will lose significant profits. I don't think that it would bode well for interClan politics. I am patiently waiting for the continuation of ilClan novels.

Not the only one- your forgot Trenton who is to be a Legend . . . I am wondering if he is being set up to be Nikol's consort.

Julietta is Rikkard's political advisor and also discusses things with Petr though he has a better political insight.

The Foxes are going to be interesting . . . you have Petr's Khanate which is involved in the League (took over ComStar facilities), you have Dominguez (?) which is involved with Julian's FedSuns . . . and then we have whichever Khanate put together the deal with Alaric.

Yeah, forgot about him. We will see what interFWL politics he will be part of.

FedSuns has currently two Khanates working inside them, Fox Khanate, which isn't happy that DC is steamrolling through FedSuns due possibility of only selling to DC because it's designated territory in FedSun being occupied by DC, and Tiburon Khanate (Lyran and OZ trading teritory) that decided to involve in FedSuns politics and escort Julian. Also, we have a problem with resurrection of FWL due overlap of trading territories of Spina (Petr's Khanate) and Skate Khanates. Hard to say how these two khanates dealt with it and there was this Wolf Empire event that kind if made another mess (WE would be in Spina Khanate territory). Seriously, we need some kind of map/table that show trade territories of Khanates.

I have high hopes for Sea Fox future.

Seems like the Horses got two pages in the Ilclan book, Other than the periphery states it seems like we got skipped over? That's sad. Oh well, a little longer and we can hit control F on the Ilclan book.

Did this post ignore the Ravens? Or are they a periphery state. Hmm...

It's not perfect, but it will be an IlClan.

That's why we need to write more, duder.  And submit it.  So others can share in Sea Fox love.

Edit: I have a feeling it won't be done any other way.

We got a little action in Shattered Fortress. Only seven mentions in Ilclan and none of them mean much. Hopefully we'll get to land a few Vultures and Savage Wolves in the next product.  :)

Yes, our Khanates and Aimags are all over.  You would think that we could figure into any product.

I did hope for more screen time.  We supply death.  We are merchants of war.

Unfortunately other than the Capellans no one has awoken the Sea Foxes wraith.  As a result little is happening to draw attention to your machinations.  With Tamar Rising and hints of mercenary company’s being created due to Lyran negligence hopefully you get the recognition you deserve.

How closely intertwined do you think the Sea Foxes and Free Worlds League will get as we move into the IlClan era?

We may get a few seats in Parliament.   But probably not much more.

The Sharkfox way is to be in control (or feel in control) from a distance.  So we can deny collaboration charges when the dust clears.

My inner Shark has been popping its fin above the surface lately, but I am still not sold on the new Clan Sea Fox. What am I missing? Is there more to the clan than the one-trick-pony wandering merchant schtick?

To be honest that is why I am waiting for Tamar Rising and other upcoming books.  With the HPGs still down and the Sea Foxes scattered in all direction I’m hoping we see the Khanates creating or reinforcing their own identities.  Already the Capellan Khanate is already siding against the current Chancellor and one Falcon tech has betrayed his clan, who knows what else is happening in the Inner Sphere.

We have been waiting for this for an incredibly long time. 

It's actually inspiring.  In a way.  I have a sharkfox story set during the Wars of Reaving.  When we were still Diamond Sharks, but still.  Can't say much more if I want to submit it to Shrapnel.

There are seven Clan Protectorate MPs in the League Parliament, and the Sea Foxes have a significant hand in export rights to any facilities in that area and a few others nearby.

It's only one Khanate, though, not the full Clan or even a majority of it.  I can see having a known quantity in Nicol and the rest of the FWL government being advantageous for both sides if shit hits the fan, but I don't see it having significant policy impact unless Petr ends up Khan.

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.

So Empire Alone is coming out in March of next year. Pretty far away...

But it seems like it features some Shark Foxes and Spirit Cats versus the Wolf Empire...

On the other hand, the phrase "With no further communication from Alaric Ward, Star Colonel Othar is left alone to face the ambitions of his subordinates and the assaults of his neighbors, and ensure the ilKhan’s realm remains inviolate." Makes me wonder if this is going to be more Clan Wolf victory porn or if we'll see the League and Clan Protectorate get their licks in.

Also... Clan Sea Fox has acknowledged Clan Wolf as Ilkhan, so what does that mean?

Anyways. At least we'll probably, maybe have something to shoot. Hopefully Tamar Rising gives the Bears and Lyran commonwealth something to do as well.

My impression of Empire Alone, and the blurbs about it that are all we have to go on, was the FWL was hitting the Wolf Empire, but we were at the rear.  We get to fight and strike from a position of power.

That said, I would expect a little about us in Tamar Rising since Twycross is there in the midst of whatever is going on.

Wasn't it just the ilKhanate (and potentially whatever other khanate helped ship wolves to terra) that did that?

With the still ongoing HPG blackout, there's enough wiggle room for spina to not have heard about the ilClan trial by the time Empire Alone takes place.

Also, with how we divided ourselves into khanates, I could see the Sea Foxes pulling a FWL and falling into a inter-khanate civil war over the ilClan issue (and any bills wolf may or may not try to wiggle out of 'By the right of the ilClan')

I'm not sure that the protectorate will fight with Wolves.   There are much more logical goals for them. The Protectorate can act as a kind of "peacemakers" between the League and the Wolves. To prevent a big war, which the Protectorate definitely does not need.

May?  The Protectorate does have a few seats- which we knew from the end of the MWDA books- and the whole Protectorate block voted against the majority to look after Sea Fox interests.

I expect Fontaine or perhaps Kenyon to start the fight with the Empire, Nikol has set her sights on Andurien so it is hard to imagine her plunging in the other direction.

In fact Kenyon could very easily be the instigator since if the League retakes old MSC worlds it could increase his power bloc- particularly since the Silverhawk Irregulars are involved.
