Common sense.

Orthwein, the god of fateto Lorelord Allanon

Tell you what Allanon, why dont we add up the total time of Mercinaens staying protection, and get the ratio for protected/unprotected Mercinaens. Then we'll do the same for Thakrians, I wonder which will be so so much higher?

Its a matter of common sense to see that obviously, Mercinaens will NOT be sitting in the pool 100% of the time, and likewise, Thakrians will not be outside 100% of the time. Try to look at the larger picture next time, rather that sieze upon a situat

ion which occurs a tiny fraction of the time, eh?
