How could you not expect to win against 4 other people? You are truly crap. And this protection that you talk about. I have not seen Isaac get any of it. Now that I think about it, neither has Eshkadeth or Steelman. Any of the seers? No?
Don't talk bullshit, Shaitan. Either you live up to your promises or you will remain mediocre.
I for one would be honored to protect my citizens if they so require. For Mercinae has the potential to. As I see it, you are just silly.
