See, if they had just hired *me* for any of the jobs I applied for at that august institution, I could help fix things. ;)

Axes and mauls are so déclassé, at least allow me to teach you some katana. Or naginata, it was known as "woman's spear." (Though, I don't know what bloody idiot thought that meant it, or its wielder was *less* dangerous...)

Perhaps if the primary target was human those would have a certain...satisfaction quotient. But I was really looking at more structural demolition, and for that a big two-handed fireman's axe for cut and tear, or the maul for pulverizing plaster really are more effective.

But, yes, the Queen of Weapons has always had a certain appeal. ;-)

Of course, Rowan was afraid I was getting out my trillium mace (which you'll have to see some time). And when I say "afraid," I mean afraid.

2.) Don't get caught.
3.) Don't leave witnesses.
