What right have you got to order your whole profession around?
Nelgin or anyone else for that matter should be free to fell staves in mercinae just as you are free to fell them in thakria.
You have no right to say what is a legitimate use of the skills of your profession or what is not.
In the past I have seen you summon ghosts from the ship of death and kill relative newbies at the pool of life useing a bug that has now been fixed. You clearly have no idea about what is right and what is wrong.
You are the kind of person that makes up rules for other people to follow without following them yourself. It shows the very sorry state of your whole profession if someone like you is deemed the spokesperson for all 3 of the loremaster guilds.
