RE: (TFT)What happend to the Mnoren?

I have broken this into three sections. I will address them backwards, then
submit my conclusions. I'm probably going to be too long winded and pendantic
about all this as well, and for that I apologize.

I will refer to this as ''Cidri was a mistake.''

I will refer to this as ''DICE, FIGURES, and HEXES.''

I will refer to this as ''Conqueror's exp.''

As per our previous discussions I will be using the Magnitude to Minutia
method in diagrams of my reasoning. These posts over the next week will be
short, as I hope to keep a tight focus on the points at hand. My conclusion
will try to make the counterstatement that Cidri was not so much a mistake in
the objective sense as the subjective experience of saying ''cidri was a
mistake'' liberates the GM to do what ever they feel is right.

Let us proceed shall we?
