Anyway, i found the most telling part was not that Vowrawn is made Emperor after the demise of Acina, but that the Empire has only 24 worlds to it's name with resource problems and a large amount of chaos within the Empire. That is surprisingly few worlds to its name and some how it managed to challenge and put the Republic in a stalemate for decades before the Eternal Empire arrived. Emperor Vowrawn's tenure is not likely to last very long with the incredible odds he faces trying to turn the Empire around from an almost certain collapse, for now i'm unsure if he really is the new leader at this point .
You are joking, they seriously say the Empire only has 24 planets? I know Marr made it clear back in Rise of the Hutt Cartel that it was definitely the underdog in the conflict but that is just an absolutely ridiculous disparity. I always thought it was ridiculous how huge a portion of their fleet the consular's ragtag rift alliance fleet was said to have destroyed was but apparently they really are just that tiny. And now they are lead by a fossil who was revealed to be old and weak in the warrior story so that means the Empire basically has no force users worth anything left either.

No, they have 24 planets that are suffering resource crises.

The exact line is ...

Spoiler


Sounds like he's trying to stop the war between the Empire and Alliance. Seeing as he was Council Member in charge of logistics for the Sith Empire, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, for now.

It might not be exactly 24.

See Paulsutherland's spoiler box. "Two dozen" might imply "about two dozen", and that allows a bit of looseness in the number. 22-26, say. If it was 19-21, I'd say "a score", while 27-29 would be "nearly thirty".

I know but my point was more that the line seems like it should be interpreted to mean that two dozen of the Empire's many worlds are in crisis rather than two dozen worlds were the entire Empire.

Yes, I agree with that part. Sorry for any confusion.

Do you think they'll kill the opposite leader off later on in the Iokath plot?

Definitely, they are going to stab us all with morton's fork and give the same end result to everyone regardless of what choice they picked. Like when they made everyone have to disarm bombs and take the gravestone back from Vaylin regardless of if Koth stole your ship or still worked for you.
