Subj: Prior recruitment post by the Dawnlord

Unaligned Achaeans,

While the Dawnlord's recent recruitment post is titled "On Truth", it would need to bear a bit of tempering before it could be considered "Truth."

I am not a recruiter. I am not a politician. I am not an active combatant. I have no personal ulterior motive for this post. I believe that each person has the right to make their own decisions and travel their path.

However, some novices or otherwise uninformed Achaeans may believe the very partial and somewhat warped version of reality that is being presented to them in the Dawnlord's recruitment post and thereby may be unfortunately duped into a subjegation which they had not bargained for. For that reason I would feel remiss if I let it go by without saying something.

Chaos is a state of being. It IS and it WAS before all else. From it sprung such things as "good" and "evil" and even "life." It is a necessary element of the grand design. As always will be, there are struggles where each faction vies for superiority. While these may swing one way or the other in any given century, the timelessness of Chaos is ultimately unaffected. The progression of Creation and its final destiny transcends this mortal world and our time. Chaos is not some tangible and insidious threat that is sneaking into our back yard. It is within the woop and warf of Sapience itself. Planning to eliminate "Chaos" is as sane as planning to eliminate "Growth."

That being said, if you feel you should "align under the banner of Good", so be it. Know though that the "Good" the Dawnlord speaks of is not the warm and fuzzy, loving and benevolent Good that you may be thinking. The Dawnlord's "Good" is an inquisition-type of elitist superiority regime that would go genocidal to "purge" the world of what his fixed and preconceived reality of "unpure" is. Free-thinking is not the point. You don't get to decide what is right or wrong, good or bad. Those decisions have already been made for you, regardless of reality. E.g. ALL of Occulists are "Bad" - despite what their actual actions, beliefs, intentions or goals are; and strictly because "he said so".

If you enjoy not having to think because somebody already thought for you; if you enjoy killing "the unpure" because prejudice and an enforced dictatorship demand that you do - regardless of the actual facts of the matter; and if you enjoy bullying and talking down to everybody that you don't mindlessly serve, then you will be very happy as a Dawnlord lacky.

If you wish to life your own life though, and enjoy being able to think for yourself then you should carefully think twice before you "align yourself to the banner of Good", as the Dawnlord's propaganda line states.
