mercinae's official stance is this. we are neutral twords parrius, as it is to us. we have given our word not take any offensive actions as a city against parrius as a city, unless parrius makes advances on mercinae soi or city.
there is no attack the custodian orders issued to any mercinae citizen. kes has been minister of justice in mercinae long before i was prince, but he is of my choosing as well. i certainly cant remove his title for attacking his personal enemies, not
anymore than you would give up your title for killing mercs in our walls.
say both sides seem to be doing some major provoking and frankly im not going to get into that game. from either side of things. i will not declare war on parrius unless attacked as some citizens wish, and i will not pull my city into a personal feud
between people who have been in this land long before i or alot of my citizens were alive here.
say now helping steal our crops in harvest was a loremaster or personal favour im sure, or i suppose retaliation for kes, im not sure, either way it stinks, shrug, oh well, from what i hear, thak would have gotten what you did anyways.
so that is where i stand, i will only engage in city warfare under the conditions previously stated. not before. my hope is to have a peaceful if somewhat strained relationship with parrius. and i believe i have proved that over and over since assumin
g the throne in mercinae. if there is war between us, you will have to start it, we wont. and that is my official stance, monkey or no.
