It is the Lunar Empire who is responsible for the modern association of chaos with illumination, because they have _chosen_ to do so."
And that stuff about Arkat vs. Gbaji, the Riddlers spreading plagues and so on, is late Third Age propaganda? I'm confused.
I like this idea of illumination as a grand philosophy - but I think its associations with Chaos are pretty old. Please explain.
