Mercinaens constantly moan about how much Parrians help Thakrians even
when it is not strictly true. Unfortunately like Cordon pointed out, they
do not have the intelligence to understand why.
The Meerkat saga highlights this problem and the sequence of events is clear for
anybody with half a brain (therefore excluding Kes, Herbie and Pahn).
First Meerkat leaves Mercinae amicably to join the neutral city of parrius, where
he goes about his business neither bothering springdalians, mercinaens or thakrians.
Then one day when there is a lack of people around for the large mercinaen group to attempt
to slay... they see Meerkat.
The rest is history.
I have no problem with any of it, only that four more posts down the line Kes will
moan once more about why Parrius led by Zenichiro, does not feel so much brotherly love
for his citizens.
