You could also gave Uthorion invade New Zealand in the mistaken idea it being another homeland of the elves after reading and watching some documentary by a guy called Tolkien.

I think the realm with the biggest problem is Tharkold. Russia only has a population of 144m over an area nearly twice the size of the US. Boom for buck, it doesn't make sense. If they move into Australia, that's only another 24.6m.

I like the idea of them setting up a lots of auto-factories in the wilderness, building up a slave and/or robotic army and just taking land by traditional methods... spreading into China and Europe (they are probably arrogant enough to fight a war on two fronts). There tech and magic would work in the Cyberpapacy and create a new crusade for the Cyberpope, whilst giving them access to more people. Western China hasn't been invade yet (if memory serves) and it would make PP accelerate their plans into China for fear of losing out.

Tharkold to the east and the Cyberpope to the west, not mention Aysle in the north and the Nile across the main oil supply (and Tharkold controlling Russia's gas supply) must be giving Germany nightmares, not that they need the Gaunt Man as well. They'll need to lift their moratorium on nuclear energy.

Jezrael has huge room for expansion: the central Asian republics have millions of people, and if she invades Iran and the Caucasus more than a hundred million people and control of a fair chunk of the world's oil and gas.

Germany and the remainder of un-invaded Europe would be highly desirable targets. I'll be curious to see why Uthorion is the only HIgh Lord (aside from TGM, who has different plans) to not really gain any territory in the first year. Sure, Pella Ardinay casting him out was a setback, but Tharkold apparently has its HIgh Lord killed and replaced and still expands a lot.

Would the US HQ in Germany be a hard point?
