Dear Horde of Mindless Drones,

This settlement was once home to a wonderful breed of humans, who specialized in the acquisition of power via treachery, brute force, ruthlessness, and other virtuous qualities. They lived in massive fortresses designed to repress the populace and indimidate them, while keeping out treacherous enemies. Oh, there were some painters or building designers or some other such things here, too, but who cares about them?

Your Loving General,
