You call these men, close to Slindar, "sycophants"... well, I guess you and your "new" country would know best, as they've become the lapdogs of oath breakers who, as you very well know, call you "New Coke" (I don't know what this word "coke" actually means... but it doesn't sound endearing).
It's not too terribly surprising you've become this, considering many of your current members use to be lapdogs of the true nation of Mordom..You see, these people who sway your country to act (or not, as the case may be) are people happy to play second fiddle, so long as they are on the side of the winner.
You want to air the truth, brother... OK, I will give it to you plainly. The truth is, your new country is comprised of the Myriadorian mindset, it is a worry-wart mindset of worry-wart elders... who think avoiding the risk of losing adds meaning to the the griffin they wear upon their chest. They could not be more wrong.
Wearing Kodos on your chest is an awesome thing, IF you know what it means and bled for the cause. They haven't, they don't... and thusly they cannot know what it means. They prove, time & again they have no clue by their actions... or lack thereof.
You speak to Slindar of "coming back"... Are you under some impression that the GMCPS still exists, brother? If so let me explain this to you. Your country is filled with: those people who always wanted to be Mordomian (but weren't), new people who don't have one itoa of what it truly means to be Mordomain, a smattering of true Mordomains (like yourself), plus a handful of other true Mordomians who rarely, if ever, are seen.
So this I say to you, my brother:
you surround yourself with fawners and flatterers, sycophants and yes-men. I don't care who you field with, but you have made yourself blind to the truth.
In all the years your crew has been in existence they have managed to muster the "courage" to do three things:
1) Attacked a boat, from a boat loaded to the hilt with Mages
2) Attacked a boat, from a boat loaded to the hilt with Mages
3) Hopped in a field fight on the side which contained all of the largest and most powerful countries in the realm, instead of fighting for yourselves.
I have pressed your crew about this behavior, over these many years and their answers are sad. It always goes something like this: I argued this at our meeting, but... We wanted to muster the courage, but... We tried to go to war, but...
This is what Mordom would have said: We argued about it, we mustered the courage, we went to war! Hail Mordom! Hail Kodos!
Admitedly the Mordomian mindset comes at a huge sacrifice. Something the majority of your crew (save the brotherhood) would know nothing about and something (I think) the vast majority in the brotherhood have little taste for these days.
I have not the wherewithal to be in that type of environment again. I paid my dues to cause... in blood sweat and tears (literally all those things); as well we all did. As far as I am concerned Mordom was over when Keldar, Chain, Creed, Slindar, myself, Croaker, Morid, Maz, and the vast majority of brothers (I believe you, as well) agreed that it was. I do not know why those same people, who chose to let Mordom go, now make futile attempts to mimick that which they once made great. It makes no sense to me.
You want the truth, brother, your "new" country shouldn't even use the word "Mordom" until they step up, put their balls on the line, and take a real action...
Asking Slindar to come back to where you live is akin to Gerard asking you to "come back" to Northern Kingdoms; it makes no sense. There is nothing to come back to... there never was. Your new country has become more of a place holder than anything... a kind of historical bookmark... a place (for those very few - who know what it actually means to don Kodos) to meet and once again strut upon the field.
So when you say "come back" I guess you may be referring to that... But Slindar, Croaker, and I are not interested in being ghosts of the old cause, that is over. We care not to mingle with those folks who desperately wish to be Mordomian and think they are, but who lack the drive it takes to truly be Mordomian.
Your new country proves time & time again they are happy with second place... just so long as they are on the side that wins. That's a myriadorian trait... not a Mordomain one. Mordomians rule or die. If you were any other country it would not make me sad to say this, but your members don Kodos upon their breast and as such it sickens me to see them; pensive... passive... pathetic...
The saddest thing about this (and I have said this many times before) is that I see the potential. You are a strong crew of veteran warriors, powerful clerics, and savvy mages... You have the sword, but are affraid to weild it unless others lead the way. Your new country worries so much about every action that they never act... and those who do, take the glory from you. The glory is yours to take, but you have to act, I am certain you know this Kel.
Your new country was a powerful tool in Cailen's glory and as such, a tool in our defeat. Although we lost, I am proud of those who stood with us, knowing how outnumbered we would be. We were truly outmatched in everything but skill and heart. I am very proud of the Nation of No Quarter who, knowing the skelletons in our closet, took us in and at first opportunity voted to stand with us... regardless of the fact the powers of realm stood against.
I am also proud to demonstrate what a few true Mordomians can do to the realm when they put their minds to it... and the fact it took all of the largest nations in the realm (who tollerate eachother... at best) to join forces together in order to best us. I would think(in some way) that might make you proud as well, as we hail from the same blood.
This is not to say I merrily accept this defeat... I am Mordomian, how can I? It is a bitter pill to swallow and one I absolutely intend to feed back to all those who took part in forcing it down my throat.
As my EOG brother opened, so shall I close:
Regarding our enemies. You will be dealt with. I believe Lord Chamberlain Bendore said it with eloquence, there will be no thanks, mercy, or forgiveness.
Sincerely & Always,
-Paladin of Kodos
