I'm not trying to justify them. You can be a terrorist group. The whole point of this game, as far as I can tell, is the terrorist vs. dictator thing. They are assholes, by and large. That's how I want them to be. But just like there was slavery in what was considered the leader of democracy...Two sides of a coin.

You want genocide. There is apartheid.

Remember folks, the world just plain sucks, as a whole.

Eeeyup.

SHIT SUCKS.

:p Peace CAN be brokered, but it's gonna be HARD to do so, considering that the majority of both sides are like "FUCK THAT" to what the other side demands XD

Dragons: "We want to keep our slaves, FUCK YOUR FREEDOM."
Humans: "We want our freedom, FUCK YOUR SLAVERY."

It might be like that, but consider the other side, as I've said. Dragons have long been the minority. All those dragon-rider books...you think maybe something like that might have happened in the past, where dragons weren't just slaves, but mounts? And now the older ones are taking their revenge?

Anyway. Which and what are you, Remuthra, and you'd need to convince in game, anyway.

Funding rebels because seriously, fuck those guys.

Entirely possible, and it'd definitely be reasonable. :p Still, it just makes the situation uglier. Both sides consider themselves 'in the right'.

Also like I said, the Russian dragons kinda deserve it, and there's literally no other way to resist them outside of 'sit on our asses and kowtow so that they hopefully don't decide to kill us until one of the possibly-nonexistent dragons that give a shit come to unseat them and probably improve fuck all.'

Wanton slavery and murder kiiiinda do stuff like that.

I admit their actions are kinda extreme, but overall they're fighting for their freedom from a shitload of tyrannical assholes. And these guys are as far as they know participate in the exact same thing.
Well, I'd like to point out that India wasn't released from English control by having foreign visitors to India killed.
And I don't know much about the Russian dragons...but when I get involved things are going to change...

Eeeyup.

Dragons: "We want to keep our slaves, FUCK YOUR FREEDOM."

A few people on each side: "Shut up! We're trying to stop the cycle of rebellion and OW STOP BITING US! Do you know who I am?"
But yeah, stuff sucks.

I'm the crazy guy with the gold dragon chunk.
And I'm the gold dragon's great-great-great grandfather.

And they're both in the wrong. Ayup, we're a rung or two below Warhammer...

Yeah, GWG, I like you. I like you a lot

Problem is, in human society, killing humans that stick up is seen as a bad thing.

Current on in-universe? Peaceful protest doesn't work, because 9/10ths of the dragons (THE ONES IN POWER) would give no shits about just massacring those protesters.

Point. Well, let's see how my campaigns work. After my "Dragons are Better Than Anarchy" campaign is off the ground, I'll start one where I show dragons the narrow differences between humans and us. (As much as the Elder Wyrm would never say so, a good, deadly terrorist attack would help. Maybe if one of your men was caught and asked why s/he did all this?)

Aaand you're the problem.
