A little interlude… something to take my mind off the last barrage of letters…

I had a conversation with Zander a little while ago. We discussed the idea of “Chaos” and what thematically opposes it. Is it the concept of “Order” that is the opposer to Chaos? Is Chaos not, by its very definition, it’s own opposing force? We oppose this rising Chaos and seek to stop it but I don’t feel like we represent any sort of Order OR Chaos.

Order and Chaos… two opposites, two halves. We strive to prevent these forces for Chaos from completing their goals, from destroying everything we know, but… The Coalition strives for Order, and seeks to impose it with brutal force. Is that all the choices? Either my companions and I are a force for Chaos, or we are a force for Order?

I think… No. The answer has been in front of us for some time now, ever since we met Steve. He knew, and though we never got to talk like this before he left us it’s obvious to me now. “For the balance!” was his battlecry, and I see now that is where we stand. A balance must be maintained. I am not here to seek to impose Order, nor to add to the Chaos. Chaos has gotten strong. Too strong. I’m here to just fight chaos, and restore the balance.

Just Fight Chaos. J.F.C.. We should use that as a call sign for our little troupe.

Wherever Steve has gone to, I trust his wisdom will overcome his own rune weapon’s curse, and guide his way. For the balance!
