Thread: The Enforcer's prayer

  1. #1

    The Enforcer's prayer

    Someone posted this on our clan forums and I found it so stunning, I just had to repost here. It's a text written by Gammelsmygen who plays that horrible, horrible crapcraft game, and it's been modified to fit AO by Juxiao from my guild. Enjoy.


    I am the Enforcer.

    When you see me, I will, most likely, not be attired formally. I will be encased in my steel. It will be dirty, bloody, and battered. I do not have a quick tongue or eloquent speech. I know nothing of the manners of politics, or the ettiquette of the formal ball.

    I am known by many names. Tank. Meatshield. Fighter. Brawler. Corpse.

    I am the Enforcer

    I have not the capability, nor the inclination, to hide. I cannot strike from stealth with devastating blows, then fade into the darkness. I cannot incinerate a foe from twenty paces away. I cannot deal death from a distance, safe from the return attacks of my enemy. In order to kill, I must close with the enemy. I see his eyes. I smell his breath. I taste his fear. And he tastes mine.

    I cannot bend Nature to do my bidding. I cannot tap into my emotions and force it to do what I command. I cannot study the notum flow and master it to my control. I command nought but my mind, my body, and my will. It is by those, and those alone, that I stand or fall.

    I have no friends on my journey. No robots or assistants, summoned or created as servants and bodyguards. No loyal beasts of the plains or woods, to defend me and comfort me in my pain. My sole companion is my weapon. I must care for it better than any hunter has ever cared for his beast. I must master it more than any Meta has ever mastered his eternalisations. Without me, it is useless. Without it, I am nothing.

    I cannot heal. I cannot shield. I cannot call upon the gods and see my prayers answered. I call to the spirits of my ancestors in the heat of battle, and they are silent. My only ability to protect is to offer myself, my blood and bone and sinew, as a sacrifice. To draw the attacks of our foes. To take the blows that would kill a lesser being, and continue to fight on.

    I cannot kill with the speed and grace of the agent, the suddenness and shock of the soldier, or the flamboyance and power of the Nanotech. When I kill, it is a slow business. Slow and bloody for all concerned, myself included. I fight on, pummeled and battered so that my companions may receive the glory of the kill and the wreaths of victory. If I die and they yet live, it is an expected sacrifice.

    I come in all races, all sizes. I fight under a thousand flags, on a million battlefields. I am dismissed by the highborn, scorned by the noble, lectured by the doctor, and forgotten by the peasant. Until the time when the trumpets of battle sound, and those who would destroy them come forth. And then the cry goes up..."Where, oh where, is the Enforcer?"

    Pray to your gods that I continue to answer that call.

    Few do answer the call. Fewer still survive. It is a long and hard road, this way of the Enforcer. Along it lie pain, and fear, and death. Scant rewards and scanter gratitude. At the end, for most, is an anonymous grave on some windblown battlefield. If they are lucky.

    And yet, I fight on. I do not even know why. Perhaps for glory, perhaps for fame, perhaps for money, perhaps for my country, perhaps for my family. Perhaps it is simply all I know how to do. But fight I will. Whether you appreciate it or not. Whether you even notice it or not. I will be out there, on the battle lines. Fighting. Killing. Dying.

    I am the Enforcer.

    Death is my business.

    Be it yours...or mine.

    This department oversees all mining operations on Rubi-Ka, Notum and otherwise. They also handle the allocation, out-of-corporation sales, and on-planet transportation of raw materials on Rubi-Ka. Due to a minor technicality that pre-dates Clan uprisings, Omni-Mining operates as an arm of Omni-Engineering, but has its own independent leadership. In addition, they have their own internal goals that include, but aren't limited to, anti-union enforcement and control of policing activity in mines and their associated facilities. Omni-Mining was once a quaint, quietly-run department, but once it was discovered that Clan activity originated in their men, they became much more authoritative and rigid.
