Mutter mutter, Tinyfugue ate the end of my post again, bleeping software.
Anyway. AS I was saying; If you want an honest, combative baron, with his own mind firmly entrenched between his ears, then you have several, including me. If you want some slick spin-doctor who manipulates people to his own ends, then PLEASE challenge me out of office. I don't make any bones that people insulting me makes me a little steamy. Especially if I am criticised for not being able to do two opposed things at the same time. If you want barons that make important decisions for you, fine. If you want to be asked about them instead, and have you say, also fine. You can't have it both ways though. I am sick of being told off by Yousuf for not consulting the citizens, and then criticised by telgalon FOR consulting the citizens. I am Happy to go to War, for the reasons i stated lengthily before. I will continue to kill specific thakrian criminals for their crimes, regardless. Hmm. I could carry on on this subject for another 10 bb's.
So I won't. It's your life, you choose what to do with it. If you don't think the barons are doing a good job, challenge us. You're welcome to try where we have 'failed with our bumbling'. I am happy with the way I live, and the decisions I make. If you are not, then CHALLENGE me for god's sake! Stop back-biting and making broad accusations, put your money where your mouth is! We are in a democracy, you vote for who you believe is right. It's up to you. Archmage Hero, Baron of Mercinae, GM of the Mages, and headbreaker.
