Working in reverse order -
Myth - I am sure that Thakria's ability to pick other cities harvest whilst divinely protected is no greater than the ability of other cities to have done the same for time immemorial. Every city has done it in the past, ever city will do it again at some point in the future.
It would probably be best to find some other subject to try and score cheap points against Thakria with.
Elmak - Perhaps if miners picked up their ore as soon as it was revealed and then continued the mining process..... perhaps.
Haluc - You will have to forgive me as i tend to get very fuzzy headed and forgetful in my old age but you said you were
removing runes from potions to help Dunccan.
Now things do tend to change in Avalon and having taken such a long time away from the land i might be a tad behind the times, however,
when i was last pootling around Avalon people only really needed to remove runes from items if they were not the original owners. Could you enlighten me as to what other reasons there are for taking runes off potions nowerdays, other than them being stolen that is.
Oh dear, I was trying to get out of the habit of leaping into other peoples arguements on the bulletin board, what a recidivist I am.
