Really, I would have said it would be more compassionate to support the loremasters' campaign to against those who regularly seek to rob and slay them by denying you the means to enable them.

That is why I let Rhadamanthys define compassion and only enjoined him to refrain from helping you.

If threats against my order is your reaction to my statement that I stayed my hand in regard to your barrel, I begin to reconsider that decision. I assure you however, that when I choose to act, you will know it. I would hate to perpetuate your theories that the gods are secretly against you.

I can't speak for the feelings of my followers, but I suspect some may be offended by your threats against me. I am certain that being the resourceful types they are, they will be offended by your attempts to kill them and I am pretty sure at least a few can take you.

Proteus, god of the sea
