Re: Choose Your Own Veridis

"We need to listen to them," Dr. Sauté tittered foppishly in an Evián accent he had never managed to shake off. "Our industry won't be truly productive until we empower the workers. Why are the Praetannics so rich? Simple: they empower the workers. "It's in your own interest,&quo...
