It is clear from your post that you know very little about Springdale. It is not a place for those looking for an easy track to power. When I came to this land Springdale was a little village of about 12 citizens. Now it is one of the most prosperous cities in avalon. This came about due to hard work and nothing else. In that time three other cities tried and failed to rise. All those cities were given mass quantities of gold to seed thier growth and two of the three and now gone and the last is all but gone. Springdale has been given nothing. We have earned all that we have, and we have done something that nobody else has been able to accomplish, and something that nobody thought we could accomplish.
