Rest in Peace
You are telling me I'm too cynical? Lol! Yes I agree the point is to make money but I have to ask the question why? The guy's got more money than God, why more? And so many are driven to collapse and no further involvement in the church, how does that help? At this point I don't think anyone in the world could give a rational explanation for this behavior as I don't think there is one. You can talk about Elron all you want but dm has obviously totally lost it.
DM's stats are forever upwards. And when he moves off the point of power (and lets Marty take over) he has all the secret bank accounts he needs and he gets to go live in Bulgravia and bribe the police.
