OOC: Nice use of communist flag, Immaculate . To Chill Bill I agree wholeheartedly with you on the matter of compromise. If the leather err blades make leather products for the good of the village, they will of course be allowed to use village supplies. However, the leatherblades' goal is, as I read, to control the entire leather industry of our village. And to do that they had the audacity to actually ask the VILLAGE to give them sole access to 1/3rd of the tannery. Village does not simply consist of leatherblades, there exists many unaffiliated leatherworkers who work for the good of the village. Leatherblades' demand to gain sole control of a part of village property is akin to your left hand asking for permission to punch the right shoulder.
