Onnwal is a house divided. The Scarlet Brotherhood claims some land ( mainly the captial, Scant ), and a rebel movement calling themselves "Free Onnwal" rule everywhere else.

While the Scarlet Brotherhood holdings represent less than a tenth of the country, Scant is still the primary merchant gateway to the rest of the Flanaess. The Brotherhood fleet uses the city as a base to extort levies from sea traffic passing through the Strait of Gearnat.

The Overseers of Scant have considered approaching Turrosh Mak in the Pomarj for the armies necessary to break the rebellion. At the same time, rebels in the countryside are trying to get Irongate more actively involved, hoping that a blockade of Scant will buy them the opportunity they need to retake the captial.
