I have it! A solution! There IS a way to use the Barrier's properties for our own ends. The people have grown soft as the sand trickling through the finest hourglass... they create works of beauty and thrive in peace, but they will need the martial skills and arcane knowledge I and mine posses. The Pact ends on the morrow even if I must shuffle through the gates myself. It will be a wonderful morning.
I can barely contain myself for sleep... after all this time, these words will not need to be read! My people will be free and we will regain our world!
