Which is libellous. The Lunars aren't stupid. Krarsht's association with chaos is not, IN ITSELF, a ggood reason to feel irrational hatred, fear and prejudice against that cult -- but coupled with the kind of things Krarshti get up to, it's a damn good reason for taking whatever measures are necessary to keep them from getting out of hand. The Lunars *know* chaos -- sometimes that's all the more reason to be Very Very Careful when dealing with it.

It only takes one to start a Dart Competition. A Yelmic patriarch who doesn't take precautions against assassination, sorcerous debilitation, sneaky subversion, etc. etc. will end up in the Halls of Supernal Light, readily able to explain to Yelm in person that he didn't engage in Dart Competitions...
