Thomas Paine in AtlantisEdit

Thomas Paine was a common soldier in the Atlantean Army commanded by General Victor Radcliff at the start of the War of Independence; he was also a writer who stirred many Atlanteans to arms with his exhortations. When the Royal Navy dropped off a raiding party of Terranovan copperskin mercenaries to raid and pillage the area around Avalon, Radcliff persuaded Paine to cross the Hesperian Gulf to Terranova and stir the colonies there to revolt against Great Britain.[1] This he did with success.[2] While some colonies resisted his message, others embraced his ideas enthusiastically.[3]
