But how important is Skellige in the whole war, if they can "only" control the sea, but the main battles are fought on ground?
Assuming the Skellige Islands don't have much farm land, they have to fish a lot or trade with the mainland to get enough food, but right now the North has better things to do than farming, especially if their farm land is burning. So maybe this will even result in negotiations with Nilfgaard, because they can't provide enough food for their own people anymore. Supporting the pro or contra person would only
result in different approaches how to solve that problem.
A pro-Nilfgaard person would of course negotiate terms with them and maybe stay neutral in the whole war or even support Nilfgaard with ships in exchange for becoming a vassal of Nilfgaard.
A contra-Nilfgaard person wouldn't negotiate with them at all, but the food problem would cause an inner conflict, which would weaken Skellige from the inside, maybe even so much that they don't have the ressources anymore to effectively go to war and staying out of the conflict for now.
Sure, that was just an imagined scenario most likely with some flaws, but i thought Geralt isn't a shepard and have to find new allies to fight the big evil
I didn't read much relevent story elements so far, i usually skip the parts, if the article starts to describe too much, but how is the stance of Skellige so far? They didn't appear to be in war with anyone so far, so they are still neutral?
And i have forgotten how Skellige behaved in the last war, did they fight against Nilfgaard or did they stay out of it?
