Does anybody know what the Imperial Saik were doing during the first 2 holy wars?  It would be strange if they were attacked since they serve the Nansur Empire.  The emperor wouldn't want his school destroyed and the shriah would really damage relationships with the emperor, bad since they have to live so close.

But if the Saik helped the holy fight other schools, there's no mention of it.  Maybe they sat on the sidelines?

If you aren't talking about that, then perhaps you could specify which wars you mean?  DA's "Compendium of the First Holy War" is throwing me off maybe?

This is what I'm thinking about--I guess I just find it confusing that they would be 'holy' wars and therefore 'Shrial.'  The distance between Momen and Sumna might be uncomfortably small in such a situation.  Could the previous holy wars be independent of the shriah?

This is all background information and spoils not a damn thing but the spoiler rules on the subforum are unclear everyone seems to be spoiler tagging everything so I've followed suit.  Is there any chance we could get a clarification on the spoiler rules?  It's silly if every answer to a Q & A thread is spoilerized.
