Intercepted message from Brizlin Fulgentbeam:
The recruits I have been assigned are having trouble overcoming their innate pragmatism. Duty to authority seems to be a key component of the paladin paradigm. For races that bow to higher authorities such as kings and queens this seems to come natural. The manipulation of the light energy on this level requires a devotion to the belief that it is a superior force to all others. Our meritocracy seems to be counter to these ideals. The recruits view all gnomes and energy types on their observable merits AFTER observation.
I am working on ways to prevent the light to recruits so that they will not question it’s superiority. We are going to try to focus on duty to community and see if that is a strong enough principle to keep to a code of conduct. I must admit, I feel morally dubious trying to teach gnomes not to question the nature of things. I just remind myself that their is nothing tall folks can do, that gnomes can’t improve!
Once we get a code of conduct in place, we will be past the hardest part!
