I watched Mercinae burn from the summit of Olympus. Amidst the wreckage, I saw Palin, struggling valliantly to fend off the four pronged assault of Grendel, Blodwyn, Trekker and Snowlock.
What are the chances of a fighter of Palin's calibre weathering a storm of this strength? I would say they are nil. Nobody denies that Palin slew some of their number, however, his arrogance is unthinkable.
