## Alphatian Empire Revenues AC 1000

by James RuhlandNote that though in AC 1000 the Alphatians have over twice as much total government revenue as Thyatis, and their Imperial government has not quite one and two thirds as much income as the Thyatian Imperial government (actually, 165% as much), this does not mean they are twice as powerful. This is primarily because, comparatively speaking, the Thyatians use their resources more efficiently than the Alphatians, who are notorious in not living up to their full potential. This is mainly, especially on the military front, due to different budget expenses and priorities. Take a Thyatian spellcaster and an Alphatian spellcaster of identical abilities and talents. The Alphatians will pay theirs at least four times as much as the Thyatians do (see "typical spellcaster wages", p.167 PWA II, p.145 PWA III). Also, they spend money on things that look (and are) cool and effective, such as skyships, but which are vastly more expensive than an equally effective alternative (such as a well-equipped Air Cavalry with good tactics and training, magical equipment and dragons, sphinxes, and the like). The Alphatians typically invest more of their resources in large, expensive magic items while the Thyatians employ small, individual magic items in efficient combinations (see "RAF Equipment and Tactics"). The Thyatian Emperor is also more likely to receive coordinated support from his vassals than the more loosely structured Alphatians have traditionally given to their central government. Thyatian temples are also typically more militant and thus likely to involve themselves in the Empire's wars than most Alphatian temples. This means that the Empires have been roughly in balance, barring the introduction of some external factor.
