    It’s not just Jahrd. Everyone in the foreground is being observed by someone. Looks creepy. ๐Ÿ˜€

    So… the whole point of killing each other now is to have a future where they don’t have to kill each other? That’s… unlikely?

    Why do the tikedi even need to kill tekk, anyway? Any animal could supply meat and bones. I’m starting to think that tekk offer themselves up to maintain a facade of equality in the Circle. Otherwise, tikedi might start thinking that they’re just being forcefully subdued by a foreign species whose beliefs they have no reason to share.

    Which probably is the case.

      Indeed, this fairy tale does read like…. well, a fairy tale. A fair-sized grain of salt is recommended, and it absolutely reinforces Jahrd’s concerns that the truth his people know and accept isn’t quiiiite the reality. He’s probably questioned it since he was small, at least enough to wonder “But, why?” like you do, and to come to the conclusion that there are missing pieces and bits that don’t add up, and a lot of people around him who are cool with not doing the tough job of finding out what’s really going on.

      I remain mum about your conclusions. =P Maybe. Maybe not.

      My personal favorite bit is that Gessick is apparently named after a total dink. At least according to this version of events.
