A tribute to Elliot "The Supreme Gentleman" Rodgers, a POPE of Discordia and a victim of feminism. This is his story along with the revealed meanings of what he was planning to do and why it was so amazing. These words that The Supreme Gentleman wrote are forever a Holy Manuscript of The Church of Discordia and Anti-Feminists everywhere. His goal in his auto-biography was for those of his religious order to further project his legacy into the world by ending feminism by the year 3030CE. Taking note that in the latter parts of his wholly remarkable work his designs for the future. This is an effort to make more sexuality ignorant persons aware of a greater future accomplished by the elimination of all feminism and a mental change over described by Rodgers and "Laws of the Five Catmas of Sexual Equality". We (Discordians) believe this work marks the beginning of the completion of what Elliot "The Supreme Gentleman" Rodgers K.S.C. started and henceforth shall continue until the great "Day of Manhood" arrives.

Her stubbornness and surprising strength energizes the Knighthood and makes Sir Lanclor question his self-imposed isolation. With the approach of an invading army, Kathryn and Sir Lanclor must find a way to end centuries of war and save two worlds.
