Zaun intrigues me, certainly. So few restrictions exist on the aspiring peoples, and a general acceptance of even the most...ethically-challenged. It is comforting to see such a bastion of acceptance, though I cannot doubt that it is also something of a dangerous place. Power politicking is likely to claim many aspiring individuals before their brilliance can be realized. Other than this, I feel no ill will towards your city-state.
Well for starters, I have successfully modified myself, to reach levels of endurance, strength and speed that would be impossible to without years of intense training.
Also Warwick current state is because of my craft, I little of a disappointment since I wanted to finish that potion before he drank it, but one can still appreciate how he has become one of the ultimate hunters on the fields.
I suppose that you should be wary, but I assure you that I never double cross a client, unless he does it to me first.
As for Zaun, yes it can be cruel to those weak but...what is a person without conflict?
Does a gem can shine without being polished first? No, only those that can overcome the hardships of Zaun can reach success there but, once they do so well, you have seen on the fields how much one can progress with enough ambition and freedom.
While I understand that you are wary of Zaun, I recommend you to pay a visit to it, I think that it will be at least refreshing sight, compared to the valance addicted Ionia.
Also if you come I would recommend you to bought a gas mask, the fumes from the city can be very armful for those not used to them.
