"There are two nations in the known world who have reached a level of industrialization, technology and structure that makes them superior to the smaller territories in many ways. Civilization strives here, and each of them covers as much geographical ground as all of the smaller factions together. If they wouldn't have 'met', and found their mortal enemy in one another, their conquest of Europe wouldn't have stopped and they would have swallowed even more of the continent already. But as it stands, the two beasts are fiercely engaged and going after each other's throat, so much so that they are draining each others resources enough to give the rest of us some room to breathe. We're not holding our breaths, however, we're getting ready for the day one dragon will fall, ready to raise our weapons against the other." -Talon Archivar, Scribe at Bollwerk Enclave, BUND territory.
