I too would prefer that this discussion take place on the guildmasters
BB. But Catt chose to post his treaty revocation here, and it is here that
this discussion will end. I apologize for the length of this post but
hopefully it will be my last on this subject.
You for posted SOME of the verbiage from our treaties. Now let me
make a correction to your post. What you termed a \"clarification\" was
NOT a clarification of a treaty. It was a clarification of the agreements we
reached at a professional meeting (a meeting Catt chose to not attend,
instead sending Snowbird). That agreement included not only a no-stripping
rule, but also rules on potion charging and a pentacle item ban.
Snowbird, as you may recall, refused to agree to anything at that
Because Catt had not attended the meeting and had no opportunity to
accept the agreement himself, AND because you asked for clarification
on the no-stripping rule, I posted those three items on the guildmasters
BB and proposed they be incorporated into the existing no-guild-entry
treaty. In other words, I proposed an EXPANSION of the EXISTING
treaty that all four guilds had already signed and a CODIFICATION of
the agreement you, Mirrigold, and I had reached. Although three guilds
accepted it, Catt REFUSED to sign off on this expansion and, in fact,
posted a REJECTION of it.
Recently, Catt messaged me that his guild would observe a 7-day
pentacle ban, but he made no mention of the other two points (anti-stripping
and potion charging). Allanon messaged me telling me he was charging
for refills but he also made no mention of the anti-stripping rule. Catt
NEVER retracted his rejection. Catt NEVER posted his acceptance. As
such, the Artisan Guild still HAD NOT signed on to the extension.
We can be generous and say that the Artisans \"informally\" accepted the
pentacle item ban and potion charging, but they NEVER ACCEPTED
THE NO-STRIPPING RULE, formally or informally. This is why
Zenichiro WAS NOT prohibited from taking and hiding Catt's robes.
