"You met a servant of Mitra? An actual Celestial? Yet it did not smite you unto ash ...though it did demand you change your allegiances. That is a daunting encounter, Lady."

Sure, nobody's hands were clean.
Right up until the tide turned everyone who didn't buy slaves at least trafficked in them. Maryland was the last northern state to cut ties with the practice, and that wasn't until after the Civil War had ended. Their profits in shipping, though not owning, slaves was just that lucrative.

I was listening to a lecture that laid blame with Jefferson; that he'd been too much of a pessimist to push for anti-slavery legislation in the western expansion. That led to the "house divided", and onward to tragedy, waste, and the still lingering discontent.

That said, however stuffed as the boxes might have been there wasn't a shortage of troops, supplies, or officers willing to back that choice. If the fix was in, it was a popular fix all same.

I'm reading a book called "American Theocracy; The Peril And Politics of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money In The 21st Century" that puts forth no small volume of data to support the theory that there was a previous actual pre-Declaration religious split roughly along Northern and Southern lines that laid the groundwork for some later conflict. That the Civil War's actual roots are religious first, making the other cultural and political divisions knock-off effects of the original divide which itself began in England, and which coincided roughly with urban/rural populations and denominations.

Edit: any cheap shots at Lincoln's character though are unwarranted. The man was POTUS; was his "logical" choice to let the US be torn apart and hope there wasn't constant warfare between them? Or that England, France, Mexico, or whoever wouldn't have gotten about gobbling up the easier to chew and swallow pieces?

Assuming for the moment that the southern indepence folks have a valid point:  Sleazy that would make Tamney Hall blush went into the "votes" for secession; that were to protect slavery as practiced in the antibellum south.  (Which was vastly worse than Greco-Roman slavery and even Ottoman Janissary slavery.)

Aiden agrees to Creamor's conclusion. "Sounds good. And from the way it behaved, it seems like it's guarding the choir hall itself? If we're lucky it won't come after us when we strike other targets in the watch tower."

Even the The Herilian Agenda!  *swoon* Wink

But no Deathmas.  Cry

Ahhhh, but there's Nest. Evil
That mod was a highlight reel for Shadow and I -even with my nearly being killed by the Mastermind's pets. Cool

Reminds me of the recent wave of anti-Lincoln historical revisionism.
"The Civil War wasn't about slavery at all! Lincoln was a tyrant! Grant was a drunk! The North couldn't tolerate Southern Independence!"

This could go here or the video thread, but since we're already discussing armor...

Japanese knotwork and modern body armor.

Well, the one on the left is Nichole-458 who was done by Team Ninja, whose female characters usually look more like this:



Nichole-458 was historic because she was the first DoA female character who didn't extreme jiggle physics.

Mechanical Wings with agile, fast, armored and enclosed upgrade are in essence an iron man suit. Best if combined with an unborn who has access to searing rays...  Evil
