Since no one has mentioned it... I will. Bane has taken Skara Brae... From what I can tell, the rangers are honestly indiferrent about the whole ordeal. Though I have seen some citizens fighting the Bane, I notice that the seige is being conducted on the mainland! Neither the Meer, Ophis, nor the Brittanian defendars are conducting operations on the island. This is a weak strategy. What are they hoping to accomplish? Maybe they'll prevent the Bane from advancing to Shame Dungeon. OMG! The defense against the bane has been pathetic. Everyone thought that the easy victories in the beginning meant that the Bane was easitly defeated. In fact, the people were easily decieved. Lord Bane now hold five (5) towns and villages and is about to make it six. This doesn't include Magincia. What's being done.... NOTHING!!! Those of you who suppost Queen Dawn, ask yourself... Why are you doing it? The idol of the Avatar is impossilbe to achieve. In times gone past in worlds gone by, the Avatar compleed his quest and achieved, in the end, immortality. But in our world, the virtues are incomplete. We cannot even connect with the virtues of Spirituatlity (of all things), humiliy, nor honesty. This is unacceptable. Lord Bane brings a new, secular view to life. Accpet his teaching (though I more enlightenment on the subject) and become a less uptaight, more accepting member of our wonderful society. Don't believe the propoganda... Lord Bane is not evil... He is setting us all free.
