Well, that could have gone better.
Not quite sure how it could’ve gone worse.
Could have been raining.
There could have been cat puke.
They could have been COMPLETELY obliterated. ^.^;
The dragon could have left an avatar to directly govern the survivors.
That’ll end native support, right enough…
Does it strike anybody else as curious that the dragon expressly leaves the mountain where the supposed threat to his power was being constructed intact as a “monument…to even the meekest” who would oppose him?
I know he also says “and a curse,” but the phrasing continues to emphasize odd things for a deity-like being out to crush opposition. “Even the meekest” also pings my interest, as that’s not how such things are usually phrased.
As the dragon imposes certain tropes of existence on others, it may be bound by some, itself.
That, or it’s all a sign of its towering arrogance.
There have been little clues strewn around since the beginning, that hint at the Dragon not being the the “being” in charge. My guesses have bounced around from the Dragon answering to someone else, the dragon being the personification of the magic that built up naturally, or that the current Dragon is the last guy that fought the Dragon and won.
The fact that it is called “The Dragon” is, in itself, a hint.
Isn’t the ‘dragon’ meddling with the natural order? By bringing ‘magic’ to spheres that did not have it previously? o_O
It depends on your definition of “natural”: it is organic for shure, don’t know about vegan or etic, though.
A virus does not see itself as subverting a cell’s proper order, but as propagating the correct order, to wit: its own….
And guessing the ‘host body’ doesn’t have any say in fighting to retain it’s normalcy?
The natural order doesn’t care so much about the losers in the battlefields of evolution, now does it? 😀
ut it doesn’t bitch about it if the host fights back
Shattering an entire sphere to make a point to meek enemies, seems excessive. It would be like if a king razed one of his forts simply because a peasant spat at his feet.
Perhaps the dragon is more afraid of what they were doing then he lets on?
Excessive but effective. Just ask Vlad the Impaler. He impaled an entire village of his own subjects to crush the morale of an invading army.
The army found the village, saw what he’d done to his own people and NOPE’D the F**K out of there.
Judiciously applied atrocities can be VERY effective motivation tools!
Well, it was Târgoviște, which was under Ottoman rule at the time — therefore not his subjects, and part of the scorched-earth tactic he was employing. But otherwise accurate.
Ol’ fangface DOES love to talk, doesn’t he? Especially when it’s all about him.
