I realized, a few nights ago, that I really have missed being able to punish people with the full extent of my power. Is it bad that I still feel no guilt when I harm a stranger? That 'Kazuma' may have been a heartless monster, but the pleasure I felt when I crushed his body to dust was undeniable.
I am contemplating the potential usefulness of gads, lately. If tools and human bodies can be marked to grant them increased protection against certain forces, would it be possible for me to further defend myself and my arms against dark powers with a few simple inscriptions? I don't know if I've really got enough faith for something like that.
