CHAPTER #1 - The Beginning

This is a forum conversation Graves/Gargantua had some time well after Gargantua took command
GRAVES: The clan stayed together because of me.
"Dude, I was there, the clan fell apart, BECAUSE of you, and your refusal to recruit new blood. And if Viren had passed power to ME, we would still be here today.
As for your 'recruiting tacts' Cass and Bio were recruited under Lalande's reign."
GRAVES: TKs did not fall when I was leader, it held strong.
"Yea, till you ditched it, because everyone was inactive, and then laughed at me for 'Riding a dead horse.' Oh I remember well.""
GRAVES: I left on my own terms and for my own reasons. Did I want to leave TKs? No, but I had to
"You didn't HAVE to do anything, you just quit because you didn't have what it was going to take to make things work. Don't think you can weasel your way out, I still have sig pics you uploaded from way back in the day, when you and BD went solo, Don't you remember your whole, 'waking up as a mutant' thing?
I should post those in this thread; as for you leaving '3 men in charge' by technical definition, you left the last 3 members 'in charge' two of which were in active."
GRAVES: Upon my leadership, I carried the true image of TKs.
"You carried the true image, of bastardity, and barbarism, like we do today, but you used Virens flawed concept/organizational model. And if you use it again, you will fail.
Lastly, how could we possibly forget that whole fiasco, of you coming down on this place, with BD and Kenetic, grasping control of the Private Khan EZ board, and deleting the most important parts of Khan pre history.
Oh yea, you've 'Always' looked out for our interests Graves.
Just like when you start your new clan, we are going to 'look out' for your 'interests'.
I bet Panamon's boot will be a loose fit up your sorry ass."
