And furthermore! (Sorry, I just can't help myself).

If Parrius WERE a suburb of Thakria, we would immediately demand

that they eject people like Krill and Jander, who jump and attack

Thakrians at will. We would have also demanded long ago that Parrius

drop their silly treaty with Springtown (which they have now done on

their own accord).

Why haven't we made our Parrian stooges jump to will? Perhaps we

are just being coy. Or MAYBE it's because we have no more right OR

power to tell them what to do than you have. DOH!

It is true that Thakria and Parrius now enjoy generally good relations,

but there are no treaties between our cities. Parrius is a free and

independent city with her own destiny and alignment. I know you find it

unbelievable that anyone could actually hate you and not be Thakrian,

but then again I guess you are too busy writing hate letters to Santa

Claus and the Tooth Fairy to keep up on current events.

As for people leaving Parrius, I admit I am not privy to their recent

demographic flow patterns. But I CAN point to the paving stones at

Mercinae's North Gate which were worn smooth by the stampede of

defections following your recent downfall.

It's time to take your medicine. There's a good boy!
