Mayhap if we obeyed Blessed Elua’s precept, it would be. Elua cared naught for thrones or mortal politics. Blessed Elua cared naught for crowns and thrones. Those words, I am told, were spoken by Melisande Shahrizai. Elua bids us to love as we will. Why isn’t that enough? Why does it have to be so damned complicated. We’re the ones who make it that way.

Angra Mainyu, we stand before you to profess our faith. Of this world we are created, and in death we are reborn in your name.

The works of Ahura Mazda, we abjure! His livestock, we starve and slaughter; his earth we salt and render barren. We embrace mfrcy and the lie, abhorring all truths.

Do you know what the odds of making that throw were? We don’t even train for it.
