Overview

Ruska is to be found in the east of central continental Alusia. It has many trade agreements with its neighbour to the south Hindia.

Its current ruler is Czar Peter the Great.

Pending problems include a dual incursion on the western borders by two previously unknown and obviously feuding states/forces.

Ruska's difficulties are compounded by having a large army with few capable leaders and a virtually non existent bureaucracy. Competent quartermasters are in short supply.

Urgent restructuring of the armed forces is a top priority. In order to accomplish this Peter has given orders that foreign generals/military experts be sought to assist in training the army, seeking allies, solving issues of supply and finally, pushing the two fueding sides out of Ruska and back into their own territories.

Rangers and spies are also being sought in an attempt to determine exactly who these forces represent.
