Two sides were placed upon a battlefield.
Both trying to defend themselves against the other by going on the offensive.
For there to be war, there need not be conflict as much as there needs to be discord; as life’s random acts show themselves in unequal ways.
What is unfair to one, what is beneficial to the second, what is horrible to the third…
...Only on the battlefield is where man can prove his mettle.
Returning virtue for virtue,
...amidst the destruction.
When the two sides faced each other, there was nothing else to do but work to be done.
Who would be the Champion of the Playground?
Alea iacta est.
Playing for all of the marbles.
Shuffling the deck.
The only question left was who had the better hand...
