Re: New OOC
I think I've got similar hair in my Description, but I'm not that funny, certainly.


Don't worry, it would be silly for my character to want peace.  It makes for dull times with no XP

And I've never seen you play a video game to hilarious results.

Good, but peace is best.

You know nothing about the guilds... Each of them is attempting to help the public and themselves at the same time. Sure, a couple are evil, but only one is Chaotic Evil. Hell, even the Chaotic Neutral, rampaging barbarians serve an important role in the balance of the city. It's like taking the wolves out of Yellowstone. It's like drinking bleach to get rid of your digestive bacteria just because they're bacteria.

Yeah what he said. They do a public service, but its sort of like whats more important police, fire department, or hospitals. But then again I was expecting this, we're versed in the guilds since we all have some degree of experience with them through MTG, he does not.

Re: New OOC
*smiles*   I see you've all bought their propaganda.  Hook, line and sinker.  :)
The Guilds' PR guys are worth every penny.
It's like being told you should be thankful for the guy who farts on you during each bus ride to work, because he makes you appreciate the only mildly foul smell of your workplace.   *smiles*

Wow that is so far off man. Alright think of it as corporations, They aren't just part of the city, they are the city. They do good for the city, and the city needs them for the services they provide, its just they all want to be the major part of the city and don't want others to interfere.

Re: New OOC
*laughs*   If you want me to think of them as "good guys" then you might not want to compare them to corporations.
It's even more obvious to me that these guys are evil, it's just that their evil plans need the rest of us so they don't do as much evil as they want to.


It's okay.  I'm never going to be convinced that the guilds are anything but evil, especially since Rivka is a barbarian who's a little leery of any civilization to begin with.
But, especially as a barbarian, she can be indifferent and decide that the evil guilds are someone else's problem.

Re: New OOC
Rivka is a bit chaotic herself, so isn't much for organizations to begin with.  And I didn't think she needed to sing the praises of the Guilds to work for them.

I actually didn't mean to annoy you, Kami.   It's nothing personal.

You don't have to sing praise but respect is needed. Its like going to small town texas and saying fuck Sports Team X.

Blargh I don't even know why it upset me so much, I guess it was just the constant saying they're evil when majority of them are literally 100 percent not evil. I think thats what got to me. When I was saying mafia and corporations and such it was more as in their organizations and such and the way the city is divided up.

Re: New OOC
*smiles*   My apologies, my friend.
Although....
I think the worship of sports teams in Texas is pretty evil, too, and constantly make fun of them.
I live in the same town as Texas A&M University, where the college football team has a stronger cult following than Scientology and the Moonies combined.
And I constantly make fun of them.
I even made jokes about Johnny "Johnny Football" Manziel to one of my bosses who had an A&M class ring.    *grins*



But I totally understand.
In my Homebrew world, I have a set of gods I created.  If someone constantly belittled them, I'd be annoyed as well.
In my defense, my introduction to the Guilds was with Rivka as a victim, and being told that "they were fighting amongst themselves over control of the city".
That's really where I got my impression.

I know in Mexico, the drug cartels are honored and nearly worshipped for all the good they do in the towns and villages in the area.
Still doesn't change what they really are, especially to a stubborn outsider.

But I apologize for upsetting you.  I'll stop complaining about them if it really bugs you.

Yeah the whole hero worship for athletes is a bit odd.

Well that was more for story purposes than anything else seeing as you are 20K in debt. And you are the only one there due to debt.

And they are fighting for control of the city, its just not street level gang warfare. There aren't car bombs going off down the block.

Well they do good with the purpose of bad, here for most of them the intent is good. General Safety, protection, that sort of thing is the main goal not a byproduct.

Yeah, sorry about that I don't know why I'm wound so tight.

Re: New OOC
*smiles*   I get a little too cranky sometimes, too, so I totally understand.
We nerds tend to take the things we love WAY too seriously.  It's one of the defining aspects of being a nerd.

Though the huge debt might be another reason that Rivka hates the guilds.  She might resent owing them money.  :)

The 10 guilds:
  • Paladin police.
  • Senate.
  • Church.
  • Hippies.
  • Basically you.
  • GMO.
  • Assassins.
  • Chemists and engineers.
  • Satanic ravers.
  • Dr Frankenstein with mushrooms.


That's like, maybe 4 Evil ones at most, 3-4 Good ones and like 8 that are focused on making the world a better place.
