city relations.

It surprises me that a person with such a great deal of experience in the land can so blatantly ignore one of the fundamental facets of avalon life. The relationship between cities is a key aspect in the way individuals conduct themselves with each ot

her. There have been alliances, official and unofficial for as long as I can remember.

I am not suggesting that members of any given city should be prevented from attacking their allies, indeed, I suspect the Sceptre of the Night was bestowed upon the land partly to encourage such fighting. However, cities have, and will continue to hol

d alliances. These relationships between cities are not always clear cut, nevertheless, they are there.

You point out that the actions of individuals are viewed as such, and not taken as city matters. I would cite the recent example of the defeat of Springdale by the city of Parrius. In this case it was the conduct of 4 or 5 individuals which prompted P

arrius' actions - indeed the settlement treaty primarily effected those citizens. Thakrians, in their unabashed arrogance have failed to recognize this, and not only have individuals burned their bridges, but your legions have been marching around the

land with little thought to the consequences.

I applaud the efforts of your government to try and pacify a swell of anti-thakrian feelings in the land. This forum has been splattered with your propoganda and moralizing for a while now. Whether the cities of the land rise up and crush Thakria rema

ins to be seen. I suspect that this time, you have bitten off more than you can chew.

I look forward to seeing the results.
