_YOU FILTH DISGUST US._

_YOU ARE JUST ONE OF MANY CITIES THAT WALLOW IN YOUR MAGICAL EXCESS… AN UNFAIR BALANCE IN THE WORLD THAT MUST BE CORRECTED._

_WE WILL CORRECT IT._

_OR YOU CAN CORRECT YOURSELVES… PERHAPS WE SHOULD GIVE YOU A CHOICE? A CHANCE TO REPENT YOUR SIN OF POWER._

“Where is this coming from? I need to know now!” General Krieger sat on her ship orbiting the city of Olde Watch as a signal piggybacked off of their frequencies to reach the City of Persistence on Palisade.

 

“We are trying to find out now, General, please…”

 

“Stop trying. We’ve been tracking them for weeks, and we can’t find them? How many satellites do we have in these skies? How many spies in every city-state? How many drones? How many informants? And we can’t find a few separatist criminals?!”

 

_THERE ARE THOSE OF YOU WHO HOLD POWER OVER THIS WORLD THAT YOU HAVE NO CLAIM TO. SURRENDER IT IF YOU CAN. RID YOURSELVES OF YOUR MAGIC. YOU HAVE A MONTH. IF YOU HAVE CLEANSED YOURSELVES, YOU WILL BE SPARED. YOU WILL FIND A PLACE IN OUR NEW WORLD._

_ALTERNATIVELY… THOSE OF YOU IN PERSISTENCE… YOU NON-PRIVILEGED CLASSES… DESTROY THE PRIVILEGED. CULL THEM. REMOVE THEM FROM POWER… AND IF YOU DO… YOU WILL ALSO GAIN OUR MERCY. ALL THOSE WHO FLEE WITH THEM FROM THE CARNAGE WILL BE TREATED AS SYMPATHIZERS. AGAIN… YOU HAVE ONE MONTH._

_THERE IS ONLY ONE POWER THAT DESERVES THIS WORLD… AND IT IS THE POWER OF THE WEAK. OF THE HUMBLE. OF THOSE WHO MUST ACTUALLY STRUGGLE. LONG HAVE WE STRUGGLED UNDERNEATH YOU… NO LONGER._

YOU WILL LEARN TO STRUGGLE BESIDE US, OR WE WILL REMOVE YOU FROM IT ENTIRELY. BALANCE… TRUE BALANCE… MUST BE OBTAINED._

 

“…So. That’s their play.” Krieger sat back in her command chair for a moment, her posture relaxing even as a bead of sweat formed on her brow. “A threat of retaliation in order to get empowered people and magicals to… remove their talents themselves, or face the consequences? And a call to action from others to strike out themselves.”

“…They are going to get people killed.”

      You are correct in your thoughts dear one. I will back you up with the whole armies of Asgard. I will make them available to your command.
