Misconception of "Light".
#18074

Artisan Allanon, of Springdaleto Sir Duroc

I speak as always for myself to confer to you my interpretation of my role

and to pick up on a common theme you seem to allude to.


Many think that \"Light\" necessarily means weak. Sure, in many ways those that follow

a \"good\" path can take the moral high ground and look down those noses disgustingly

at the various tactics and antics of the \"evil\" Thakrians. I dare say for some

immense pleasure and self fulfilment is gained by \"turning the other cheek\" as such.


Unfortunately, if all those who sit on the \"goodly\" side chose to adopt this stance

anarchy would ensue with the \"evil\" side running amok doing pretty much what they like

their victims perhaps sitting in the middle of their overrun cities hugging each other.


This is a time when stands must be made and hands must get dirtied. This includes includes

performing less than honourable acts at times as circumstances dictates. The one difference

tho (particularly in my own case) is retrubution is never sought from someone who

did not CHOOSE to get involved in the ongoing struggle between good and evil.


This is not suggesting all should choose this path - I have continued to struggle

for many years with many not liking my brand of \"light\" and justice - invariably

the reason it is not liked is because it is particularly effective in bringing evil

to account.


I am ultimately answerable only to the gods in general and my Patron in particular -

therefore those that continue to spout their petty lies and slanders (Arthor etc)

really are wasting their time if they think a few mistruths are going to get

me off their backs.
