I think my point was missed. Bandits and Rangers use sewers and treetops as loremasters use portal and alkar, mages use peace rits and mists, seers use farbond and far cursing, knights their massive hitting power and ability to run away in any situat
ion despite what has befallen them and sorcerors their demons and portals.
Owning a shop means nothing more then bugging an aide long enough that they hand one over to shut you up. Once a shop is owned by someone with the vast amount of comms in the land making keys for everyone and their cousin is nothing. Stockroom sitti
ng is just pathetic. If you want the safety room then join the guilds that provide the skill. I realize that while everyone is capable of hiding in stockrooms or running away to one after starting a fight will continue as long as they are willing.
However it does not mean it should be viewed as an acceptable practice.
Finally I am always touchy on this but please make better observations. You rarely see me in either the sewers or my high priest room for extended periods of time unless I am conducting meetings. I march troops when the combined forces of all 3 citi
es come after me. I attack troop marchers when the combined forces of all 3 cities are trying to stop me and I have been known to be crazy enough to charge in alone at a group of mages doing avrits.
