I still stick by my Shou Lung Empire...I get hundreds of thousands of soldiers AND SPELLJAMMING ships! A whole fleet of them...so I'm even many steps ahead of Halruaa in Air Superiority!

The few hundreds of Shadovar troops slaughtered seven thousand Saerloonians, composed of soldiers and spellcasters, in Shadowstorm. How much more if Shade utilizes all its troops...

If I were to wage war against all the realms in Faerun, even if it's one realm at a time, 5,000 looks too few. I say 25,000 will be the ideal/best number. I would have a mix of the Shadovar, Red Wizards out of Thay, Halruaa survivors, and hundreds of durthans and their lackeys.

Every beginning has an end.

Question... by "5,000 Seldarine Knights" do we mean fighter levels only, or a mixture of classes? And I really like the Purple Dragons as well... so it's a bit of a tough call.

I'm sticking with my pit fiends. Asmodeus has been literally bleeding the things for thousands of years now; he has enough.

Plus the numbers must have spiked now that they stopped constantly fighting the demons I reckon.

If I recall, Asmodeus himself never directly sent his personal stock of pit fiends into action in the blood war; he was building up an army for "A conflict that would dwarf the blood war" by his claim.

The time is coming.

It can be a mixture of classes. whatever you want bro! really the question is isf you were going to take over the realms and you had to start with 5k troops what type of troops would you want to use in this war if you could choose?

What exactly do all those pit fiends do, day in and day out? I mean, you can only torture lemures for so long until it gets dull.

Maybe they farm abyssal potatoes and abyssal tomatoes. Perhaps some are shepherds of abyssal cows and abyssal sheep.

And what do their houses look like? I bet they have really tall and wide doorways so they don't bump their leathery wings.

Suburban Hell... NICE.

I just picture them driving to work each day in heavy traffic (in their lemure-pulled chariots), and them calling their wives on the way home to tell them that they'll be late... and a she gets mad because she has a delicious unbaptized soul in the oven...

Ah, but remember the human factor of the Death Note:- "The human whose name is written in this note shall die."

I suspect the Baatezu all drive Volkswagens and Hummers.

Eat lots of garlic - it keeps the elves and vampires away.
Don't stick your sword into dragons, you just don't know where they've been.
Avoid stepping on halflings. They stick to your boots, will smell awful, and are impossible to scrape off.
Ah, of course. Never play leapfrog with a unicorn.

Dos Auto.

Heh, I wonder what the realms would be like with automobiles.

Anyways the Purple Dragons would blast the Baatezu in their Hummers away with their tanks!! (yes, the Obarskyrs are bad mofos that way)
