I dont speak to the monkey's, so I have framed this reply to you, as it was on your behalf Marie claimed to speak;
Mercinae has long been at odds with Goblin town, there is a very long history of animosity between us, I am suprised that Parrius decided to ally herself with them.
This war is not a personal \"ego\" trip, my voice is the loudest because it is my job to announce decisions made by the Barony. Mercinae still have enough of a baronial structure to do things this way, we dont need to recruit hasbeens as mouthpieces.
Finally, you will find this snake bites first.
