|After the return of the DRC, during the times of D'mala, my level of trust grew weak. But I have taken a different perspective as of late. You shouldn't judge a society strickly on its leaders and celebrities. You should look at the men and women that make up that work force. Which brought me to a state of mind, in which I could critically view the roles that the ResEng folks take in the cavern.
While they may be affiliated with the DRC, they have something that many of the celebrity characters lack, the human touch. For the most part, they are in the know, but they are humble. They sit down with us and talk, without even turning it into a great meeting. They are always there, giving them a much closer experience with the explorers than any member of the DRC. And you know what, we need more of that. These episodes give us what? We get an age each month and about three days of strained contact with some idols. But the ResEng folks have shown that the DRC isn't completely full of celebrities and politicians that keep us at arms length, who's presence places them far above your average explorer.
If the ADM were a legit faction, I may consider their position. But the fact that a ResEng will always be there to talk reassures me that there are some folks among the DRC are down to earth, and have the same respect for the Cavern, and it's people, as your genuine, dedicated, explorer. The true proletariat of our society. So Mozel Tov to the hardhat clad work force, and to every explorer that aids another in need. For you, I will share the topical words of a fellow Jew and a fellow Storyteller.
|And the next Great King will say to the explorers,
Come, inherit the cavern,
For when I was hungry, you gave me bread,
When I was sick, you tended to my wounds,
And when I was cold, you gave me shelter.
But the Explorers will ask the King
But, oh Mighty King,
When did we feed you,
Or heal you,
Or bring you into our homes?
And the Great King will simply smile, and say
When you have done these things for the Least of us,
You have done them for me
