You acknowledge that this group of people exists. You acknowledge that they reside upon Hellsbriar. You acknowledge that they have formed a list outlining such 'threats' to the group and their home as Miss Daisy Littlefoot. You acknowledge that the Bearers of Fire seek the destruction of this group. You acknowledge that you belong to this group. And, presumably, you acknowledge that the notorious majority of men and women who make up your 'nobility' also belong to this group.
And yet you deny that this group is the Temple!
Your people are not fools, my dear child. Most of them are far more educated than yourself. And though I catch many glimmers of wisdom throughout the men who walk our streets, I catch not the faintest spark from any word written by your hand, nor speech uttered from your lips. This group is the Temple. You have convinced none otherwise with your lies. What would you have us call this 'family', then? The history of the Temple is no secret, despot! The only bond you share with these 'brothers' and 'sisters' of yours is that very one you hold with the Blood-God. People remember. A simple change of name does not make right those wrongs which have been caused by this group of yours. The past is not forgotten.

Who is this child-queen to decide how man ought and ought not to live? Today, she deems herself 'Archduchess'. Tomorrow, who knows what title shall take her fancy? 'Goddess', perhaps? These 'barbarians' do wrong, in her eyes. Her very own 'law' states that a being must not be discriminated because of age, nor race, nor gender, nor denomination. But she does not know the written law, of course. For the written law was simply stolen from the previous government; she has not read these rules. But she does not need to have read them, for the written law is no constraint upon her authority. What are your next actions to be, Joxia, Despot of Troll's Bane? Shall we wage war upon the Orcs of Dar'Krest next, for they consume raw meats and reside within caves? Those savages! Or perhaps the people of Varshikar, for they do not speak correctly and enjoy the desert life? How wrongful! And what, exactly, did the defenceless folk of the Farmer's Union do to deserve your claims? What was 'wrong' about their ways? Is their choice of lifestyle to simple and peaceful for your tastes? If this child's conception of 'wrong' and 'right' determines our military policy, then I fear that none upon this island are safe.
And what noble 'Archduchess' does not spell?

The 'tax man'? Come, my dear. You would not appreciate it if I referred to you as the 'tyrant girl'. But see! Even the tax collector does not acknowledge your right to rule! I admit that finances are not my area of expertise, but have you tried asking him to give you the taxes? Perhaps if you explained to him by what vote, law, or King, you were made Archduchess, he would be more welcoming to your demands.
Joxia Doral wrote:Your last statement here has no truth in it at all since none of the people you intend to try to kill follow the Blood God. I cant even think of anyone who does any more. But you act like He is mule dung under your shoe...he who lost everything so that we are alive today and not owned by Madrook. And Sir Mark Stongarm taught me this lesson. All thge gods deserve their respect and Moshran ~ YES I WROTE THE NAME ~ is no less worthy of some bit of respect for his sacrifice for us all. This should have been proven when all the gods came to save him and each took a piece of his burden unto themselves...But wait..I dont even recall you being there to witness such a divine act by all the gods and goddesses.
Why do you defend the Blood-God with such vigour, Despot? Earlier, you did not seem so certain that none of your 'brothers' and 'sisters' followed the Bone-Lord. No you deem it absolute. Have you queried them all between the last few paragraphs? But if not you nor any of your fellow Temple members follow Him, then there is little need to speak on His behalf. You spend more words failing to convince people that your obvious ties to Moshran are non-existent than you do defending your own rule and actions.
And again, what member of the nobility does not spell?
If none can see that these are the simple writings of a foolish child, who has done wrong and been backed into a corner, then I shall not call myself a father.
