In the normal world we are but cogs in The Machine that will turn us until we break, only to be replaced by another cog. In "the game" however we are strong and mighty! We have the courage to help us fulfill our cause as we march against our enemies. And, we have axes! With all this strength and all this power, why the hell do these villagers use us as simple mailmen? Why not have us slay a dragon or maybe hunt down a wild group of centaurs that are attacking the trade caravans? I deliver mail to my boss in the real world, why would I want to go into a game to deliver more mail?
I guess even in game, we are simply just cogs, cogs with huge axes. Axes that cut through… so much red tape.
