Sorry I missed one old email.
Okay Josh I totally agree on not wanting the Dragon Clan evil.
I totally disagree about John Wick. I see the Scorpion situation and ours
as Apples and Oranges, and totally understand his frustration. Either way
we are trading subjective opinions, so... <shrug>.
I also totally agree that Ree should be cheered for her efforts, not dissed
like she often is.
But don't you think in this long email where you blame Wick for dooming our
Clan Thunderer (and us as well) arbitrarily, it might have been appropriate
to just at least mention the Obsidian Hand?
Hey, I really really didn't want us walking that path, and I called AEG
often during this time to complain. I was talking to Dave W. most of the
time, where I begged for Hoshi. He explained that the Thunderer took
precedence (kinda like you mention here). He then went on and explained
exactly what was grafted to her hand. It seems our Thunderer was not quite
the same as the other Thunderers were anymore. It did take over half her
Bottom line was I got a very reasonable explanation that I did not like.
YMMV, and remember the subjective opinions point. This email is worth what
you all paid for it which is nothing =).
