    Spiral Horns Rebuttal

    AvengerRam has built a great fire and asked the legion to gather around while he speaks of the new enemy. The words he uses have been carefully chosen in that they describe nearly every warrior in one way or another.

    "Surely, we cannot go into battle with so many soldiers wounded already!" some would exclaim.

    Others lamented, "too many of our greatest Champions are no longer among us. The new guard is not ready for the challenges that lie ahead."
    Weather or not you question the leader or the new guard matters not. The fact that you have questioned anything is cause for an “S” to be branded on your face. It is AvengerRam that drives the wedge between the legion. It is AvengerRam asking for dictation without representation. It is AvengerRam that lites the fire within the legion and it is AvengerRam who dances away from the flames that perhaps should be engulfing him.

    The Council resigned themselves to the fact that this mystery would not be solved within their ranks.
    Sadly some of the words AvengerRam speaks are true. More sad; others are misleading. True that “Separatists” are fighting on fronts within the legion. Fighting a battle where triumph does not exist even in victory. AvengerRam fails to mention what many see to be the real worry and buries it beneath the above. The internal battles do not stem from losing Champion Warriors, this has been accepted.

    AvengerRam in his words carry the message, "It is the warriors who worship at the leaders alter that are loyal to the legion.

    “Separatists” warn that the danger is not realizing the loyalty is directed at a single member of council and not to the legion. The “propaganda” the “Separatists” have been accused of spreading is created from facts buoyed by errors in judgment which have ultimately cost the legion their greatest battles.

    The warriors wrongly defined as “Separatists” ask AvengerRam to step up and define to the legion, which definition he refers to when he speaks of propaganda? (see below)

    Until further defined "Separatists" are forced to see the use of the word “Propaganda” as Propaganda itself because there have been no untruths spoken by the warriors labeled as “Separatists”. Only disgust in watching their greatest chance at victory snatched from their grasp and only the propaganda that questions a warriors loyalty to the legion. The same warriors whoes fathers died fighting for now have had their loyalty questioned by one.

    "Seperatists" ask, who is it that is spreading the propaganda amongst the legion?

    “Separatists” urge the legion to clear their clouded view of the leader. Clear it to that of awareness not mutiny. Unfortunately that awareness has been propagated as disloyalty which is where the internal battle has risen from.

    The mutiny AvengerRam speaks of is merely the pondering of the last great battle. What if the legion had defied the leader advancing while he ordered the legion to regroup and reload?

    As the legion advanced towards victory mopping up the enemy our forces were doubted by our own. Orders came to stop the assault. It is clear that the enemy took the high ground while the legion could only stand and watch. That doubt spilled the blood of our brothers and we are aware of who belongs to these bloody hands. We are also aware of the propaganda that tries to cleanse those bloody hands.

    Our hope does not grow from propaganda-laden words that attempt to wash the hands which drip the blood of our brothers. It grows by watching his candle burn late into the night while the rest of the legion has given into the darkness.

    At this time we know of no leader that can lead us better and though the words of the legion sound strong the fear can be seen within.

    That fear is not caused from the losing of our greatest warriors; it is caused by our greatest warrior losing a great battle because of fear.

    Propaganda: misinformation or half truths.

    Propaganda: information that is spread for the purpose of promoting some cause.

    Propaganda: The systematic propagation of a doctrine or cause or of information reflecting the views and interests of those advocating such a doctrine or cause.

    Propaganda: Material disseminated by the advocates or opponents of a doctrine or cause: wartime propaganda.

    As the legion engages the coming battle, look towards the hills then towards the valley. Finally look straight ahead it is the “Separatists” that will be leading the charge as they know no other way.

    ...and the plot thickens.

    Re: Spiral Horns Rebuttal

    This is an excellent thread. Though AvengerRam is the bard and seer of the Legion, he in no way should be its only perspective. A Legion should never be homogeneous.


    I'm going to take the liberty to move it to the Spiralhorn board, where it belongs.

    I trust everyone understands that this is all about having fun and generation a new brand of conversation. I like what Avenger has done with the Spiral Horns furthermore I respect what he has done with it.

    Enough already with the soap! No more of this. Talk football wars. There is enough soap/political rhetoric on the waves, and I hear too much of it. I want Spiralhorns lore, not "He said, She said".

    Enough with the Re- Butt - Head stuff.

    The Spiralhorn Lore is suppose to be the lighter side - if you don't like it - don't read it.

    Where is your sense of humor??

    I'll take my own advice- No more re - butt -head....

    ARF ARF ARF :tongue:
