Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!

Inky’s Note: One of my greatest personal treasures is my Imagination. It was the blacksmith that tempered my steel, the knight that evoked my bravery, the soft whisper that saved my sanity, and the attentive lover that wrapped me in it’s arms when I was most alone.
