Intolerance of Atlantia
Poster: Kevin of Thornbury <email@example.com>
Unto my fellow Atlantians comes somber greetings this day from
Kevin of Thornbury.
I think I'd have preferred to be ignorant. Though I've
unsubscribed, I still peruse the archives looking for
pertinent material. I almost wish I hadn't.
Through talking with other people at the few events I've
been to and communicating with notables on the West coast,
I too have heard stories of invincibility about some fighters.
But these were specific, and I could ignore the harsh words.
My friends, I am new to this game and have played only for
the last six months. So new, I haven't received all of my
yet. Now, I feel genuine pain that my dream of Chivalry
is now somehow more empty. For today I have learned that
Atlantian fighters - of which I am a new member - are
scorned across the Known World. I one day hope to wear a
white belt - an undertaking I am prepared to give due
diligence for the next several years if necessary. The
Knights I have met have all been courteous, fair and helpful.
But how am I to react when I know that when that one day comes
that I become a knight, I am also given a chain of dishonor?
Is this perception really true?
Good knights, if so, break this chain! I implore you that no
matter your injury or your modesty, please lend a hand to those
of us who know no better. Teach me to be fair and courteous,
to be skilled and still chivalrous. I'm very new at this, and
will soak up whatever you can impart. I still stand in awe of
white belts, and I watch them closely. I want to know what it
is that makes a man a knight.
For no other reason, please entertain this simple plea, from one
who is uninjured physically and emotionally, to share the dream
if for no other reason than to spread the joy you once knew.
To those who have instructed me thus far, my thanks. I can
only hope my progress and conduct serve teacher and kingdom well.
In humble gratitude,
