You guys are still debating this?

I'm still for Shou Lung...put me in charge and I'm ruler of the world.

It is my "other" choice and I'm sticking to it.

This is one of those 'versus' arguments.

Theres a good reason why those are banned on this site.

For instance, I'll throw this out there: Pun Pun

There, I win... now close this thread.

Hmm the Empire of Netheril at its peak!( Not the Shadovar, the real Empire of Magic please!)

Everything ends where it begins. Period.

Some of us only visit every six months or so, and cherry pick - either the most interesting scrolls or the easiest to add a comment too.

I can understand that...my comment was more tongue in cheek trending toward "My answer is the best answer and you should all just shut up and admit that the Shou Empire would win it all!" sort of thing.

What would have happened if the Empire of Imaskar and the Empire of Netheril existed in the same era?

Didn't they?

EDIT:

Checked some dates. Imaskari Empire didn't fall until -2488 DR.

"High Netheril" was founded in -2954 DR with the first Enclave.

The Imaskari and Netherese had hundreds of years at their peak of power to deal with each other.

No, they didn't. I was referring to the old empires, not Shade and High and Deep Imaskar.

The old Imaskar was founded around -8000s DR, and was turned to ashes around -2000s DR, while Netheril was founded around -2500s. At some point they 'met', but definitely not during the height of their power, which in Netheril's case, was around -2200s DR, the Golden Age. In short, Imaskar was already falling apart by the time Netheril was just starting to become an empire.

Every beginning has an end.

I'll have to disagree.

The Netherese had the the Nether Scrolls by -3533 DR.

While they may not have started chopping up mountains until -2954 DR, that is still hundreds of years of access to Sarukh magic...and well over a thousand years before Imaskar fell.

Went with 5k seldarine knights just because I think they outclass the purple dragons and red wizards would leave once heavy resistance was met. However, in the Seven Sisters accessory it was stated that the Simbul...ALONE...once destroyed an army of thousands.

I have a dream that one day, all game worlds will exist as one.

The Simbul was a powerhouse. In one of Ed's Sage of Shadowdale novels she mentions she doesn't have much useful magic available, unless they actually wanted the entire Hullack Forest blasted apart.

I think the Purple Dragons mixed in with a Spellfire User or two to counter enemy Magic would be a good team

With that particular mix, though, I don't think your army would even make it out of the camp.
