Allow me to claim that you strip and kill steeds during and after mutual challenges.
Yet, I am not complaining. I really don't care how you try to annoy me. If I was really, truly saddened by the loss of my gear to every blathering, bi-polar wretch during and after mutual challenges, I might do something drastic. I might give up fighting and become a pacifist. Just for a little while. Then I would fight again. Then choose pacifism. And then, maybe, I'd battle some more. But then I'd find the odds against me again, perhaps. Pacifism it is. And maybe, just maybe.....
How truly nauseating that cycle would be for me. It's a good thing I'm not a sad, lonely nutjob wench.
Happy New Year to All,
Written by my hand on the 3rd of Eleuthral, in the year 1154.
