[quote:2e592a51d4]What gives him the right? If he's mad at Kahvi-- sure, kill her in a cave-in. You're even. But he looks smugly down at all the Go Backs and takes everything away from them- recklessly endangering all their lives in the process. Why does this not seem to bother anybody else?

What this "arrived" as in my mind was almost cartoon or video game violence; Rayek flies around in a cape, shooting fireballs; Everything's in bright, clean colours; Treestump and Clearbrook aren't amused, but let it go soon - and then we're treated to Picky's comical humiliation.
Rayek's heartless treatment of Two-Edge in SABM, for example, felt so much worse. I suppose KOTBW left me... shall we say... lukewarm. It didn't get to me as much as the story deserved. I suppose I'm almost alone in that so I don't know if that's relevant to anybody else.
