Ulgi, second child of the ruler of Paç, chats about war with Baron Tilar of Edanat:
Ah. Well, I live on the trade route that runs down the Ulava to the Mere. Bjupazh is on the other side of the river. In my corner of the world we believe that prosperous neighbors make for good trade and we all thrive together. Unstable neighbors make trade routes uncertain and dangerous. Warring neighbors are only good for armorers but not for ordinary folk. They threaten to embroil us all in death and disaster, slaughtered people, stolen cattle, burned villages, salted fields, and disease at every turn.
