Lazarus, god of painto Calagan The Black

I am getting very tired of the implication that the fact that sorcerers so often dominate the land is prima facie proof of some sort of inequality in skills. You thief types have absolutely nothing to complain about. Your skills are equal, if not superior to a sorcerers. If you doubt me, look to the ordination of snowlock (a thief) when his competitor was zollrender (a thief). If you are unable to fight, look past those irrational egalatarian impluses and blame yourself, for it is most surely your fault.
