Letter to High Chief Karl Blackroot

Recommended Posts

 

Grand Marshal Dimlin Irongut would crumble the missive in his hand, grumbling as he’d casting it into the fire with ire before beginning to write a response:

 

“To the malefactor that claims righteousness,

 

I read in this missive the exact epitome and fallacious arguments that have caused discord in so many polities hitherto our great nation: Claimed repentance, hubris, and the most grievous of them all, the sewing of chaos and incredulity into our system of law. I must inform you I haven’t the ink to waste on you but in defense of our law and our Kingdom, I will. 

 

Karl, you claim that you have repented for your sins, seen the light, and witnessed the true abhorrence you committed yet I ask where was this consciousness when you murdered that dwarf? Where was this consciousness when you spent stone hours having your lawyers utilize sophistry in a vain attempt to escape the law? I will supply you with the answer to that question, Nowhere. For the entirety of the trial, you argued innocence but Yemekar behold when you were freed you write a missive as a contrite dwarf. The simple truth of the story is you only claimed to repent once you paid your settlement. You are not a repentant figure Karl, you are a duplicitous, and iniquitous being that could probably be defined as mad, but you continue to quake our nation with your deceiving howls for ‘justice’. 

 

I must admit, I am bemused by the hubris that emits from this missive Karl and your actions during that trial. I have never witnessed a dwarf claim himself for harsher punishment and I do not think it was done with altruism, I think it was done perhaps to see yourself cemented as a martyr. That or maybe you just wish to revel in the fact you were not sentenced harsher. You advocated previously this dwarf was a creature of Khorvad and you did the will of the Brathmordakin by killing him. So many times you have defied the High Prophet and the Clergy but now you appeal to them?. I am thunderstruck by your contradictory arguments as time has gone on. All I can amount this to is arrogance and dogmatism, that you are the only that can decide when a dwarf is deserving of life. Only you can judge if you were guilty of a crime and if the punishment was fit. Only you can decide which laws you hold yourself to. That is where I find an issue, that you are unwilling to follow any reasoning other than your own even when it benefits you. 

 

Finally, I see you have written this missive with the intent to criticize and reform the High Courts due to their ‘unfair’ punishment of yourself, and I disagree. The High Courts made that decision by the law code but furthermore to see stability in the entity you govern, Hefrumm. What good would it do to burn you or woodwork you into a lovely kayak if long term common dwed would suffer from the instability brought on by your execution? Hefrumm has stood as a bastion of hope and light for Forest Dwarves and in these great times of strife, a new leader is not needed. The High Courts must judge cases based upon impartiality and reason but also with the comprehension of how their decision will affect our Grand Kingdom and if they make the wrong one what precedence they set. Praytell, why it was arduous for you to write a letter to the High Courts privately so that internal reforms may be done to rectify the inaccuracies in our law code. 

 

To conclude, You may not be aware but what you have inferred and confounded with your writing is that our judges are corrupt and dissolute, that the decisions they make are malicious. That they play political favors for politicians and that ‘bribery’ is enough to stow their investigations. All you do with this is sow distrust into our system of law, and inadvertently assert that the common dwarves should be skeptical of our courts rather than trust in their decisions to see this nation hold a brighter future.”
