I am reminded of the old Chinese proverb, \"Be careful what you wish for\".

Few of us would invest the time excavating a mineshaft for a single silver

ore, or spend 6 plus hours felling to get 15 ore. But then few of us are

blessed with the ambition, drive and patience of the mighty Sa-Feydaykin.

So be it!

Citizens of Mercinae, the staves are now up for your viewing pleasure.

Please prepare your \"thank you Constantine\" notes as you deem

appropriate. The staves will only target my enemies so your young are

safe. Enjoy!

Written by my hand on the 19th of Ilmarael, in the year 1047.
