Is this a peaceful occupation? And where is Ruth??

On behalf of the Dragonriders of Fort Weyr:

Keep your tithes; we'll all move to the Southern Continent where we can pick fruit off trees and our dragons can hunt felines.

Good Day!

Shouldn't it be "Occupy Benden", since Ruatha's a hold?

Can some of us occupy a ocean based hold? Dolphins can not go to Ruatha. So dolphineers can not.

Have fun in occupency. Us dolphineers send lots of fish to eat.

I went with Occupy Ruatha to play on the fact that Fax occupied Ruatha.

Plus I think the Holders tried occupying Benden, and it wasn't exactly a smashing success....

I don't know. I would think the Holders are the 1% with all their power, and in the case of Fax, corruption.

And let's not forget Chalkin of Bitra, who claimed he didn't believe Thread was coming back but charged his holders double tithes so he'd be sure of living through the Pass.

Clearly we need to overthrow all of them! I didn't even think about the craft halls. That Robinton lives in luxury with his Benden wine, and for what, singing a few songs? Psh!
