So I've been reading Giantslayer and it got me thinking...
How would the Lizardmen react if the High Elves regularly entered the paths of the old ones and cleared out as many of the mutant beasts as they could?
Would they attack the HE as it 'not being part of the plan'? Or would they just let them get on with it?
It strikes me that if the HE could push out all other creatures (except LM) they could slowly but surely attempt to force out chaos for the most part. Maybe build lodestone structures or something to try and syphon off the chaos energy where the paths are corroding the most.
If I remember correctly Teclis theorises that the paths run to the gates at the poles. So obviously there would be limit as to how much could actually be achieved.
Anything like this would have to be a win for the good guys if even a fraction of it could be achieved.
