And ta to John for the pretty pictures, Chris Jones for providing the PC when he wasn't even at the panel, and Nick for doing the techno-wizardry

I like this idea. Not only do we have factions within the Lunars and factions within the Orlanthi, all conspiring against each other, it gives us another faction that's a Lunar/Orlanthi mix.

But, I don't see Fereshori Rastillia and Kallyr getting together for a cup of tea, lovely picture though it is. Yes, there's cooperation, but on the Lunar side at least the leadership is anonymous. Even the Lunars agents (PCs) helping won't know who on their side is really behind it. At least, that's the plan! Unless of course PC agents on Tatius' side find out. Or PC agents on F.R.'s side find out and get careless. Or Orlanthi find out (yes, they do have spies in the camp), and for some reason let the information get loose.

So the PCs who are helping get the non-combatants out don't just have to guard these people against Lunar ambushes. That would be too easy. They have to figure out why some Lunar ambushes turn their backs and start whistling when they approach, and why it's only some of them that do this, and which ones, and WTF is going on. And as soon as they report back, they're co-opted into the Orlanthi intelligence service.
