I see your point but you are failing to see mine. If the dwarves like
all the other races give up their cultures and religions it would no
longer be the great King's hall but instead would be the God-wizard
Popo's hall that is destroyed. This is assuming that other races do not
now inhabit the cave with the dwarves. Becouse hell they all worship the
same Demi-god now why not share. Of couse why would the Dwarves give up
on their god for foul wizard in the first place. Or whywould the Tore'e
or the brahjians etc.

Ill find the quotes that you and mandor used to defend against starting
the game at room crash if you like. Why have you so suddenly changed you
mind about this. It would be nice if you stayed consistant. I will give
you credit for being consistant in keeping me out of this discusion. You
have been very consistant in that. Why?
