THREATS OF THE WORLD

Night Malefic - The Night Malefic is a constant threat to anyone outside the walls of a city.  Any Force found outside of a city’s walls are vulnerable.  If a Force moves over a Province or stays in a Province plagued with these horrors they will gain Despair and lose a Unit at random for every chapter they are there.  There are several of these threats looming in the world and they will move randomly at the beginning of every Season.  There are even some places that are just so stained with violence and terror that they are permanently haunted with Night Malefic.  These threats are Below Notice.

Rogue Forces - These Forces are generally small and are comprised of bandits, displaced populace, and Units that have fled their home nations Forces.  They will feed off of the land, steal from the populace, and Raid other Armies Supply Lines.  Unless they are very large and powerful, it is unlikely they will ever directly face another Force straight on, unless they look weak or are outnumbered.

Non-Human Forces - Elves, Dwarves and Orcs are rarely seen outside of their native lands, and Forces of such even less so.  Orcs may be the most populace along their own border, driving raids into the lands of Capacionne when they can.  At times a tribe of them is found hiding in mountains, caves, and other dark places of the world where human settlements are non-existent.  For the most part though, these races keep to themselves and remain mysterious and unknowable.

Triumvirate Forces - Heretics, no longer Human, evil.  These followers of Kuarl, Lazarolth, and Taranthalus are the bane of Humanity and must be purged above all else.  These Forces are generally small but augmented through their dark gods unholy gifts.  Their ways are anathema, they must be stopped.
