Beyond our little parliaments, the mysteries were trampled, one after another; [[NotSoOmniscientCouncilOfBickering we did nothing]]. The pride of the Templars has turned to rigor mortis. [[TookALevelInCynicism I cannot unsee it now, huh?]] Like an immaculate mouth with a front tooth missing. We claim to stand against the darkness, but no, we slump in our Renaissance chairs, picking listlessly at the velvet. Ja, but I have said enough.
