Sardon of the Atarka would like to explain that the Bearers of Fire are in the position to form these solutions and to act upon them. Citizens are not permitted to tear down the pillars and they are not informed why, in fact the citizens are not told very much at all. So Sardon is curious, very curious in fact, as to why the Alrik would ask an uninformed citizen to give you a solution to a problem you will not seek help with? Perhaps if the council was less focused on indicting new comers, they would have the means to come up with a solution to their problems.
It is criminal, the sheer negligence of the Council is a mockery to governance. Your methods of keeping citizens uninformed are merely methods for control, as is the blatant refusal to hire Guards. The positions you hold are ones of responsibility, not power. The Bearers of Fire should serve in the prison mine for the time in which they held Runewick hostage with their negligence.
Sardon proposes a restructure of the Runewick Council, for those members currently in it be removed from their positions. With the Bearers of Fire relieved of responsibility Runewick will be open for a new set of minds to pave the way for future learning. During this time of restructure Sardon is willing to provide every resource at his disposal to provide more adequate defenses against the Gray Creature's resurgence.
