He's a very nice chappy. He's brought autonomy and freedom to the Far Place in an extraordinarily short space of time. Alda Chur is **extremely** prosperous, and its splendid barbarian traditions shine side by side with the most cosmopolitan offerings of Empire. The altars of Yelmalio burn grain night and day. He has freed our land from the ambitions of the Tarshite kings who have plagued us for centuries, and from the inept interference of Sartarite warlords.

What's that you say? The highlands? Scapegoating of Elmali? Abandoning the traditions of our ancestors? Persecutions of Orlanthi clans? The Burning of Alone? Civil war and massacres? Gargarthi mercenaries? Free reign given to Lunar irregulars? Kowtowing to Inperial interests? Political suppression even of rival Yelmalian factions? Neo-Yelmic snobbery? Persistent rumours linking him to the terror of the Bigger Wind?

I say, you're not an Orlanthi are you? Traitor! You stay right there, I'm calling the Guardians of Order...
