I agreed to watch the presidential debates with Matthew and Miranda tonight, in exchange for which I got control of the laptop (so I was ready to get the Guild Wars 2 Halloween update when it went live). I couldn’t decide which was worse, waiting for the patch or the endless talking. You people really watched three of these?
In charr politics, there is much less debating. If, say, someone wanted to try to rise to Khan-Ur, they would declare their lineage and qualifications: the huge number of grawl they’d killed, for example, but certainly not the number of vetoes they’d cast. Their rival would do the same, and then one would cut the other’s head off.
It’s an expeditious process that preserves one’s energy for the real task of uniting the charr, something very few have proven capable of. In this, I suppose, we are more alike than different.
Anyway, the evening was not a total loss. I enjoyed hearing about your people’s love for horses and bayonets. And of course the Halloween patch eventually arrived. So, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to ride a broomstick through Lion’s Arch.
