A note is left under the previous one.
Miss Alli Zelos,
I thank you on your words, however flawed they are. I do not hide behind the temple, far from it as a point in fact. I do know my history, and i do know the wrongs that the temple have committed in the past. And i ask this of you, show me bans in effect for temple members, apart from ones i have issued myself. Not because they are temple, but because the BROKE THE LAW. Mayhap you didn't read all of my postings hither to, so, allow me to refresh your memory.
One thing rules in Trollsbane: Law
What happens to criminals: Banned, fined, service
What happens to murderers: Banned, possible Kos
What happens to traitors:Banned, removal of anything remotely linking them to the town. Other possible punishments
Are there temple members in the government?: NO
Are you sure?: Positive
But i could swear....: Now your just an idiot.
Do the temple have any say in the government?: NO
Have any bans that you are aware of on temple members being permanently banned been brought to your attention?: No
Have any temple members committed a crime during your service: Yes
Where they appropriately punished, in accordance with town law?: No i let them off scott free....oh wait, no i didn't, i gave them punishment under the law. Odd.
Have i banned other criminals for similar offenses: YES
My encounter with the man known as Elijah was brief. Do you know what happened there, miss Zelos? Your "man trying to save the town" Attacked a close friend of mine and council member Oxiana. He was unarmed and unprepared. Oxiana has never had ANY ties to the temple, he is not a collaborator, and i give him the sole credit for keeping this town running for as long as it has since Kaiden. Im i biased in my views? Truly? You defend a man who literally ran around the town killing officials and others so im now told, who had not a thing to do with the temple. Tell me, dear Alli, when was the last time the temple did that? I am truly offended that you would think me biased. I do not discriminate as my last posting just showed. I warned all parties involved that this war of theirs on trollsbane would be met with immediate and lethal action. I did not just say that to the Temple members, nor the the anti-temple.
Read your laws; The temple is allowed within the town of trollsbane. They cannot be citizens, they cannot hold a position within the government. And guess what? Thanks to people like yourself, Mauller, Elijah, and a lad named Alex, guess what we have? Witch hunts on our streets. People shouting "Your a templar" "No your a templar, i saw him with Joxia!" like little children. But they are not children, are they? They have blades and because of the panicky fear your dear Elijah has instilled about being a temple member, these people with blades can, and HAVE hurt each other.
. I believe on my previous post i said
Kill each other out, for what its worth. The town herself will be better off for it. DO NOT BRING YOUR VIOLENCE WITHIN THE WALLS. Do not bring your accusations and false claims of righteousness within the walls. Any violent action made by EITHER group, will be met with immediate and deadly force. This petty war ends, as far as Trollsbane is concerned, NOW.
Was that in anyway unclear? Hold to you high opinion of Elijah, i could quite honestly care less. You are trying to make some sort of...kindly hero out of a murderer who hides behind a facade of righteousness.
AS LONG AS IT IS THE LAW THAT THE TEMPLE IS NOT ALLOWED IN GOVERNMENT POSITIONS, OR AS CITIZENS I WILL MAKE CERTAIN THAT IS HELD.
You question my motives? They are quite simple. Look at the town, look at the random acts of violence and chaos. My motives are to protect the town and the law.
Oh, and i would not hide behind the temple. It is true they have rendered aid in the past against criminals, but i fully believe in the strength of our guard and that of our guard Captain Leon. (just a quick side note. The temple hasnt even been preforming the task of friend of the guards for.......at least 3 weeks now. I suppose i just stole some of your ammunition, pity. Because i so long for these foolish discussions and moral forays into my head, wasting my patience in time.)
Malachin with you all,
Fredric Drake, judge.
