I suppose the moral of this story is, city elves can and will fuck your shit up if you rile them enough, even if you are a super-awesome guy with loads of status that everyone likes. And fuck, I wish it hadn't had to be Drogan, but, all bets were off when a particularly well-regarded elf turned up dead (though admittedly, we never did figure out for sure who killed that elf, we only knew who was threatening them). You can't just take that back. Live by the sword, die by the sword, that's just how it works. There are elves, they have tribes, aliances, and friends, they are not helpless despite very few rolling up city elves (or their weak stats, or lack of riding), and it's seriously meta as fuck to start with the assumption that they are. Drogan didn't do it wrong, but some do.
