In the coming weeks or months no doubt military battle will be joined.
Despite Zenichiros smug posting his comments about deja vu seem very correct.
Over the last months both Parrius' and Mercinae's position has been weakened by a combination
of betrayal and abuse of bugs.
I suppose Thakria has seen the nett gain both in a lessening of the number of troops to be faced
and a batch of ill gotten rations and comms.
Whilst a person with sufficient city commands and access and the will can indeed turn coat
as has been done many times in the past, that person can seriously hurt a city or perhaps even lead
to it's downfall.
Particularly with the farming and labours system this negates incredible man hours of work by
honest good natured citizens.
In the old days of City Patrons anyone foolish enough to choose the betrayal route normally
paid for the act with there Avalon existence effectively terminated (Cardodius and Ioiad spring instantly yo mind).
These days I guess nothing will happen - it's the nature of the beast that Thakria gains
as obviously anyone prepared to perform such an act of betrayal must feel more at home in Thakria.
