Second Illanti Empire

“It is in the follies of his own nobility that a man might be gripped by the dark desire for war – not in rebellion against peace but obedience to virtue, not hatred of life but the love of honor. Yet for all its brilliant surfaces, the conqueror is swept up by concealed undercurrents when confronted by the misery and violence of war in its terrible reality. Once blooded, the conqueror must paint himself in glory and esteem, raise up monuments and gather tribute in his name, that none will see he is not the master of his own destiny.”
