Mowglee! It's you! Come give your old friend Emme a hug. And then tell me some Mowglee lies.

A life, some would argue, is a series of problems. There’s no denying the truth in that – but why get lost in it? Why not rise above the truth… and lead a good life? Shouldn’t we all look at problems as a chance for us to find… solutions?

Welcome to the docks. As you can see some things have changed since you last visited Namyzarc. I do hope that we can persuade you to abandon your foolish and misguided allegiance to the Blue team. They are hopelessly doomed. As Bugsy siegel said, everyone deserves a fresh start once in awhile.

Rathstar and Agent Emme. I wish I could say that it was good to see you again, but I was rather hoping for some different faces. As you can see, I have made myself leader here as well. We are the center of trade and commerce, the life blood of this region. The warehouse is little more than a storage center. The docks are far more fitting for my method of rule than the Warehouse and once all challenges to our rule have been eliminated, both will understand the new order.

I do encourage you speak openly and transparently. Let's not waste our time with whispers... the time for such things has passed. Mowglee and Steven Duran, I have decided to keep you in place for now, but don't get too comfortable.

Tsk, tsk, tsk.. Namyzarc, here we have gone out of our way to offer you a chance at a fresh start and then you go and ruin it by whispering to a known criminal.

You had best fall in line, unless you want one of my associates to have to become involved. Bones have a tendency to get broken around my associates. I'm not entirely sure why.

Now lets all have a civil conversation. Move beyond whispers and other sort of nonsense and just sit back and relax. The docks really are beautiful at sunset. I'd hate for your eyes to be too bruised and swollen to witness it.

Wow, that was awesome. Even brought a tear to my eye, Mach. But I've got a quote for you, too:

"Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you'll live -- at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!!!" -- William Wallace

Vote Randy

All right, so who's with me? For Blues and gray-aligned blues everywhere! Freedom! Freedom from oppression! Woooooo!!!!

The hypocrisy was intentional. All the best tyrants.. ahem, I mean leaders are hypocrits, after all.

I gave you the chance of aiding me willingly, but you have elected the futile path of resistance. You will find no chinks in our armor, no weakness to be exploited... No the only thing you will discover is pain.

My rule will be eternal. The President and all his allies are as good as dead. A new order will rise and be built upon the ashes you will all soon witness here.

Yeah, you're such a great leader, I can tell by the silence everyone else has so far exhibited. They're hushed by your mightiness.

But I am brave enough to say otherwise! Your so-called comprehensive knowledge shows dangerous gaps. Why, I'll bet you can't even tell me who the bomber is right now!! And even if you could, I CERTAINLY know you can't tell me if he/she has co-revealed with the engineer yet!

Randy, what are you hoping to achieve? To save the life of the President? That weak, simpering wretch. He may very well stand before us now, unknowingly awaiting his doom. He will never leave here. You should know that I am different from all the rest who came before me. Ask Agent Emme and Alan how I seized control of the warehouse. Are you surprised I and those loyal to our cause have taken the docks as well? You don't really think that Michael was able to become leader on his own, do you? I put him in power as a joke, much as Caligula appointed a horse a senator. Tell me, did he remain in control?

You should know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of power is power.

It is time for you to gather some idea of what power means. The first thing you must realize is that power is collective. The individual only has power in so far as he ceases to be an individual. You go on speaking about freedom and justice. Ha! I used the same lines in the past. Utterances of transparency, of peace... They were lies, even if I thought I believed them at the tme. The 'free' human being is always defeated. It must be so, because every human being is doomed to die, which is the greatest of all failures. But if he can make complete, utter submission, if he can escape from his identity, if he can merge himself in the Party so that he is the Party, then he is all-powerful and immortal.

Abandon the blue faction and join with us. Now is your only chance at immortality.

-- Paraphrased with parts from George Orwell's Nineteen-Eighty Four.

Yes, 'Random' transfers. Continue to believe that truth. The reality is that everything has gone according to our plan.
