Nicely said by Eskadeth I feel...
You and I have been great friends for a long while. We successfully traded and brought dignity and honour to our position. However, you haven't been around a while and don't realise the trouble the Helkarakse has caused. He should be held responsible for the current relationship along with, but in a smaller proportion, the trading antics of Thakria (and similar approach by a close ally Parrius).
I regret your death, but feel in no way responsible.
