Re: Secrets of the Spirit Callers
I'm a bit sad that the groups are being painted so extremely black and white. I really prefer more moral ambiguity. What you've said about the Guard doesn't really match the "Necessary Evil" you claimed them to be in your first post. There's a difference between dogmatic and excessive. Going after anyone even rumored to have a power is a great way to make sure your group falls apart.
For starters it makes the public hate you. It also seeds distrust amongst the actual members. It also puts you at a disadvantage: Killing off people on your side not only makes your side weaker in manpower but it dissuades new people from joining, persuades them to help your enemies, and, if by chance you do kill a Caller on your side, takes out a significant powerhouse that you could have unleashed on your enemies.
Then again, with the heads of the groups being who they are, I suppose it is sort of in character. Though it doesn't really make sense for the Guard, given how events played out...
In any case, I've updated Leonard and Adrian.
for the Forum War... Again.
Big thanks to Tunduli on Pokecharms for the sprite in the banner.
