Apologies for the boast. Seriously.
It'll be a long time before you hear me apologize for boasting again. Savor it. That being said, it didn't belong in the post. What did was a point that I was not whining, but commenting on the state of Avalon as a whole.
Unfortunately, it gives many ammunition to disregard my entire post. So, take this for what it's worth. I'm just recently back, and as of now am rather rusty.
Please consider the salient points. Teaming is bad. We have become completely indifferent to teaming so long as it is us doing the teaming, yet it is horrible when others do it to us and they all deserve to be roasted.
Stripping is bad. The apparent acceptance of it is terrible! And the double standard that goes along with it is awful. Krills' box trap swiping the occasional pipe is not nearly as bad as taking someones pouches or sack.
One would think that those in the position of weakness would be forced to rely on these methods to regain their strength, not those in a position of strength using them to maintain their control, to the notable detriment of the realm.
This is, of course, barring the idea that this specific city espouses terror etc. I hate that idea, but at least with Thakria it was a marginal (at best) justification. Unless SD has now become that city of terrorism (read: justice), this doesn't make a lick of sense.
But hell, you'll all be quite happy once you've driven your enemies from the land, no longer have anyone to fight and have 1600 SOI. Who cares that you'll be in an enormous, albeit expensive, chatroom?
