Are you really surprised that Belgadeth cannot separate a guild matter from a city one? He cannot even make the distinction between a personal matter and a city one. Neither can Abydos, Laslow and half of Springdale from my experience. He, like the others, will lie, cheat and scheme their way into utlilizing a bigger force to have his way when all other attempts fail.
Written by my hand on the 1st of Leaflost, in the year 1147.
