Hey everyone! I hope you're all having a fantabulous start to your week so far! :D <3

I will say this is the very first mention of 'The Hallowed Grounds'; given that the primary conflict between the Kijin and the Danrir is known to be territorial, I'm sure people can make fairly good guesses what 'The Hallowed Grounds' might be. We'll get into it eventually. ;)

Thanks for withstanding all the talky-talky so far folks! >3<* You guys are champs!

A couple of plugs today for Myl's Let's Plays - the latest episode of our It Takes Two playthrough went up this week (virtual muffins to those who catch the potentially video-demonetising omake XD), and I also wanted to plug her new playlist for Life is Strange: True Colors, the latest instalment in the LiS series. You don't need to have seen previous LiS games to appreciate this one, and I've been really enjoying it so far so I wanted to recommend it~ :) Watch it along with me :D

She's also posted a "Myl-mpression", i.e. first impression (spoiler-free, unless you want to get into the game 120% blind) video for people wondering what the game feels like, at least during the first couple hours of gameplay. Useful for people who want a glimpse!

This week and next I am going to be super busy IRL because of moving shenanigans but I have enough buffer to keep the updates going, happily! Hope you enjoyed today's update~ have an excellent weekend, and see y'all next week! :3

OK, now I'm really intrigued as to what The Hallowed Grounds are all about.

Establishing a Neutral Zone is a valid point. Everyone involved would have a stake in policing it. If Hallowed Ground means what it implies, it might be the only workable solution.

Good luck in your endeavors this week!

I'm the skeptic here, apparently. Even if Gwen's Idea works, which based on generations of bad blood between the 2 races makes that a fairly big "IF", how many people here would actually be willing to support a peace agreement? As mentioned last week, a lot of money is changing hands because of this war, who would willingly give it up?

Further, even if everyone agreed that peace was the best option, how long would it be before someone used something else to stir pot of hatred up?

Nemi and Jinn didn't stop hating each other because they had nothing to fight about, They stopped hating each other when they were forced to lean on each other for survival. they became a living example of the song of the Dancer. (ps, I am still throwing rose pedals at your feet for that poem, Rufi... I am not worthy!)

The trouble with a neutral zone is it's only gonna take one attack from somewhere to make everyone to lose whatever trust still exists and never consider it ever again and just go full-on war. Not mentioning how they're gonna trust everyone to maintain it as a neutral zone.

But claiming the Hallowed Grounds does seem like a good solution. Remove the reason for the war in the first place.

Great idea there - and you can see immediately the resistance of the other ("unaffected"/"not afflicted") participants...

@R/N: I hope your moving will go smoothly... *many huggus* ♡
