I have demanded of your current guildmaster that I be removed as
patron of this guild. My association with the guild goes back for
years, but in all truthfulness the guild has never achieved the
greatness that should have done in that time.
The god-given advantages this guild enjoys are of prime importance.
They place it in the easiest city to grow up in (due to geography) and give
it he most recognisable name for the most favoured profession. These
advantages alone should make this guild the strongest in Avalon - and the
leader of this guild one of the most powerful.
Now, it seems that the guild is striving to remove one of those advantages,
that of being a part of Mercinae. I've had the usual pathetic excuses but the
fact remains that this guild and Mercinae are intertwined in such a way that
one cannot succeed without the other.
TAKE CHARGE. Mercinae and the Knights guild should be virtually indistinguishable.
The city is full of pacifists and non-fighters who would be only too glad to
shelter under the wing of a strong Knights guild and will work tirelessly if given
the opportunity - Don't remove yourselves from city politics.
Yet something holds this guild back, something causes it always to self destruct.
Well, the only constant over all these centuries has been me, though I have never
got involved in the actual running of the guild. The time has now come for change.
I sever all connections with this guild forever.
