To all Public Relations people,
Further Dunccan's post -- and a good advisory it is, by the way,
Public Relations people all have the facility to watch the actions
of scholars and novices. Should a scholar be acting inappropriately
we are in a position to observe and intervene, if necessary.
Two words then -
First is aid: If your scholars are the target of an overly skilled
scholar, then it would greatly enhance their gameplay and set the scales
evenly if you were to advice your scholars. Ask a fighter to accompany then
- er them - on their journey, and help them use their fledgling skills.
NOT attack the culprit directly -- rather help your young friend defeat them.
the scholar skills are fairly balanced in this respect.
Second is God-intervention: If there is a God about when you see such
suspicious behaviour, they have tools at their disposal to check whether
this person is a second (I'm referring to Genesis and Apollo here) or any
God with an eye to what's common can watch their behaviour for a while.
It is difficult to judge seconds for ourselves. We can guess -- but we cannot
know for certain. It would be unfair to ouster a gifted young Militia course
graduate for being smart and talented!
Remember that you cannot always see the deities who are present - send a WISH
to the heavens when something untoward seems to be occuring. Xantho, should he
return, will be well met with many hostile scholars and new graduates. As we all
know, Avalon is not a place for the timid.
