In both my posts, and words to you, I was certain to avoid jumping to the conclusion that simply because you are Thakria, Threap, and brigand, you where to blame. I fully realize the it could be any of my guildmates(though I hope not), or any bandit.
The fact you are using this as justification to pick it down is nonesense, and I hope you know it. picking to 1 stunts the growth, and will ultimatly cause it to vanish if you continue to do so. If momemtary gain is worth that to you, so be it. Apparently it was to the two young rangers who utterly destroyed any chance of a decent life they had going for them.
