Shadowy Meetings, and a Demonstration of Power
Sativa sent the following report to TMN:
Recently while exploring Thieves' Island, some members of the Shadowguild along with unaffiliated guests met with a stealthy representative of Nylar's. While making some interesting secret offers and whispers of possible agreements in the future, they demonstrated one of their many powers if we ever needed to 'resolve' our problems. This was merely a demonstration, and Mr. Wangah was revived afterward. Let us hope that if any would hinder the progress of the rebel mystics and the new Shadowguild, that they remember what they may face.
-Sativa, Leader of the Puddleby Shadowguild

A threat directed at Puddleby at large? The Shadowguild certainly does not lack nerve.
As if Wangah is some sort of paragon of the community...
... we're likely better off the more often he stays fallen, anyway! Fewer orga invasions that way!
The fact that Wangah fell isn't the threat here, it is this statement: "Let us hope that if any would hinder the progress of the rebel mystics and the new Shadowguild, that they remember what they may face."
Some things should be left in the shadows. Wangah was prying and sticking his nose into Shadowguild matters. What did he think would happen?
It's quite true that some things should be left in the shadows. Sativa openly states his hostile intentions against anyone he deems a threat, even Puddleby itself it seems. What does he think will happen?
Only a fool would think I would threaten all of puddleby. Surely it only extends to those who would intentionally stop us from pursuing our own path. Besides, I would never consider it a threat, merely an incentive to consider the fact that the Shadowguild is both real and powerful. We in the Shadowguild do not mean harm to anyone, and only wish to receive the same deference and respect as any other secretive organization with hidden agendas!
Giving people an incentive by stating your willingness to hurt them is a threat. Threatening "any who would hinder our progress" is a threat made against everyone, telling them they had better not hinder your progress or you will make good on the threat.
The wording changes but the message stays the same: Do not interfere lest you receive a knife in the back.
so be it then. Don't interfere unless you wanna have fun being the opposite side of the drama of clanlord :) Join the Shadowguild! We want to give you a chance to be your own kind of mystic, and we have the strength to defend ourselves if some would stop us!
Being a Mystic means you threaten and commit violence on others in Puddleby simply due to your rampant paranoia? Looks like you're starting an "open" assassin's guild and being taken advantage of by the unsavory underground attempting to disrupt and take power in Puddleby through your naivety. How much more of a fool can you be?
I was always lead to believe we Fen'neko (males) were the paranoid ones (a.k.a Slyph's characterizing of races in the lands and Connie Crete's observations). I stand corrected, i'm glad to know i was wrong - unless it's just a single case of mental sickness. Since when is it fun to stick a knife in someone's back? You're the complete fool, this is not a Mystic be. A charlatan yes, twisting his words every which way when confronted with them. Fool indeed.
hey Kvynn, shove it up your ass
Oh sorry. hey Kvynn, shove it up your ass, signed Sativa.. seriously its a game have fun, life and death mean nothing when you're immortal. You wanna get rude, fine then dont talk to me, you mean nothing to anyone anyway.
Who is this Kevin guy? Did he forget how to spell his own name?
After all these years...do the mystics even serve a purpose, other than to mock those who don't see things the way they do? Let the shadowguild be born! A more practical mystic sounds like a better mystic. I laughed at someone calling Sativa a charlatan. It was a mystic...they're all charlatans...hypocrisy at its best...
Wait wait wait!!!
Since when is it not fun to knife someone in the back??? Some of my fondest memories are of blades in the shadows. Ah, the good old days.
Hey Sativa — maybe keep it in-character instead of responding to K'vynn's obviously IC comment with some OOC rudeness of your own?
that was all in character. THe shadowguild sees life as a game. We don't take it so seriously and thus dabble in the darker side of the lok'groton islands. I won't be addressing Kvynns comment again.
The Sativa I'm familiar with was less of a bully and a thug. I don't know much about this Shadowguild, but it sounds like it's taken you down a tasteless path. Even the pirates try to keep our murderin' classy.
That rhetoric is only for Kvynn. That is not the first time he has been rude to me. Mystics think they can talk down to people just because they were appointed by a few others who think just like they do. The fact is, nobody has a right to behave that way, and I am not going to politely accept the constant derisive tone. He knows why I spoke to him that way, and it's not just for that one comment. I'll take your advice politely Kani, but you're wrong. This group is not tasteless and one of thugs. People need a sense of freaking humor. Honestly the instant fall of an evil mystic, who was both raised and conversed with after the fact.. I knew people would react, but didn't expect such bedwetting
Point o clarification: yer Psycho fens, not paranoid fens.
There's a decided lack of bacon and beer in this thread of comments. *yawn* Back to studying.
Kani is so annoying, loves sticking his nose in others business.
