Alas, no I don't understand. What's with them nudges and the winking? Please say more.
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.

Heh, my written word really sucks these days, probably from practicing other languages.

I just mean that if there is another caster (edit: ie. in Wanda's army), I wont find it outrageously shocking, but at the moment I'm willing to accept that there isn't.

The question which was bugging me so far after this update - is there some sort of "code of conduct". What happens if one caster is responsible for others death? He's outcasted at MK? Nothing happens at all, etc.
They are all barbarians. But somehow there should be rules too. Itching to know more about MK.

I don't think there's any really good reason to cast aspersions on the MK because they are willing to hire skilled labor. I mean, did you build the house you live in, or was it beneath you to do so? Maybe it's just tough, sweaty, time-consuming labor that most people would rather hire someone else for if they can afford it.

What can Parson really do except feel terrible about it? I think that Sizemore might just too nice of a guy to really unload something like that on him.

That, and he is involved revolutions of Erf-shaking proportions, new magics, almost heretical in nature, are secondary compared to the sociopolitical and religious facet of GK's ascension.

War and, by extension, death are constants in Erf. Casters who leave the MK do die, and this must occasionally happen at the hands or partially due to the actions of other casters. I'm sure that they understand that "business is business." And the business of Erf, to steal a phrase, is War.
They could not possibly win. Every man knew this with certainty, and lo it was glorious.
