Really? Who was it that set us up for the fall in the first place?
Dark Dragon is almost inherent in the new cards; obviously, somebody's
just waiting for us to bite the corrupt carrot, and the other players
aren't the ones who made the cards.

No, because A tournament is only ONE player. That can be explained
away. However, since this is thousands of players, if the
powers-that-be look at our decks and see a common thread of kolat and
corrupt cards throughout our results, then what we've done will have
been undone. Remember, HE is a TWO-YEAR story. We're almost halfway
there. We can hardly say we've made a difference if we fall apart now
and the Dragon become the next Phoenix or Scorpion.

Why did we (actually, Bujun, Puck, and a few others) start this
movement? Was it because it looked like Dragon was going to be as
honorable as ever, or because we were being set up for the fall? If it
was the former, then your point is valid, since we began this great
mission from our own nobility, and have no reason to change. If it was
the latter, then "fear of reprisal" is what brings us all together, and
we must maintain the standard that has brought us this far.
>>Shun the kolat.

Have you tried the Sri-Lankans? They have excellent tea.
