Drang Nach Westen II

Drang Nast Ost

The fighting has headed west. Thanks to Tim for opening up the estate of the Grand Duchy of Williams Landing. It is a fine place to have a war, I quite recommend the trip.

Lysander was on hand, of course.  But so were the inquisition:

Now Sir, I'm hoping you will be able to assist with my inquiries

No matter how many battles they win, can they win the war?
