The Lost Golden Age theme actually bugs me a lot in general. It inspires in
me a desire to poke holes in the mystical past, if I feel I have to accept
that mythos myself. I mean, what's so awful about the present, really?
Elves bug me too. I like Terry Pratchett's Lords and Ladies better.

While acknowledging that casual violence is reprehensible and I would never
seriously consider killing someone, I have to reply: Firearms are personal.
