The Feuer treat guns & magic as dishonorable because they believe that they make the wielder dispassionate/disconnected from the consequences of their actions. In reality, each is a tool; the use of which is up to the user. A gun won't kill anyone as long as it is hanging on a wall, or sitting on a table. Magical energy won't harm anyone (normally) unless it is channeled. Someone has to pick up the gun/channel the energy to put it to use. The tool itself remains just a tool employed to the will of the user.

The important question is, was Raden's life and death honorable? If so, then that is what Dad has to embrace and move on. Life lived in the mirror is not life, it's just an extended death.

This is an emotional punch. I'll have to write more later.

Your right of course about the person being the one responsible not the tool.

This was a quick exploration about question of one's life theology. Had they been Almier or Thousand lands would Roden still be alive because magic healed him or a gun kept him out of harms way. No factually correct answer is suppose to be found at this point. Just an exploration of Thoughts.

The idea that using a gun or spell is dishonorable has annoyed me greatly. Especially with what Arua's meeting with the king of Feuer. Anyone hoping to even have a chance of facing him would NEED either just to put up a fight. He feels more like a lion trying to rule mice, and expecting them to fight on an even field.

I'm so glad you brought that up. Your description of a lion ruling mice is a accurate comparison. The Feuer king is regarded an avatar of the a god of honor, so he is closer to a force rather then a person.

This is another thing that was never really addressed in Gratz because I couldn't find a way to discuses it natural. But I do have a fair amount of world lore for these places that I just don't have a good way to place in the story. I've toyed with the idea of adding a lore tab or something that contains all this extra content but I haven't found a good way to implement it yet.

Now moving outside of the lore into the real world, we aren't suppose to find everything in Feuer agreeable. Feuer is exploring aspects of civilization turned up to 11.

So in conclusion, your observations are on the mark and your thinking about how things work together or against each other is part of the idea of this exploration.

sooo... *Thumbs up*

"This GRATZ goes to 11."

A happy boi.

Tirea's comment about a father and adopted daughter make me think that her mother came from a previous relationship, but they look too close in some details that maybe she's only mentioning that as a piece of the conversation and nothing more than that.

It was a reference for back in the "Enter the ring" chapter with Xrua and what ever that old Orc who was taken care of her was called.

I never really did say he adopted her because he never formally did. So it's a reference that is understandably hard to connect.
