What kind of fool does the Arle of Vetheriss take me for? "Your people of Western Norrasjo begged for my protection while you remain determined to not side with either true faction of this war."
Bah, I can't believe this. Do I look so stupid as to believe this isn't a land-power grab pretending to have the Capitolist's authority to act?
Vetheriss has grown nearly a quarter of its size - where is next, Felkhath? The people of Felkhath love Arle Great-Cook; they'd never ask to leave his Arling.
I'd like to see what excuse Felkhath is given for when this happens to them.
Norrasjo left Vetheriss over a century ago - you're not an elf or dwarf to hold a grudge for so long, and if you were of orc descent like I, you'd be on your fleet and shooting my harbors.
Oh wait, I forgot, you don't have a fleet. Have you tried your army?
