Time to regroup, reorganize, time to make new plans.
We used to have a system with branches for each class/multiclass type but it didnt work smoothly.
I'm leaning to a more mobster style approach now, having discussed the new approach with a couple of people.
We'll split up in gangs or operative cells.
Each gang is led by a shadowmaster responsible for his team.
Each gang is build for a specific purpose.
These were the ones that were mentioned so far:
*Plundering: Team specialized in getting in someplace unseen bypassing traps, locks, and other nasty surprises.
*Theft: Classic pickpocketing.
*Scamming:The brain tank of the operation. Intelligence and insight in what motivates others are the prime requirements for this job.
*Intrigue: Intrigue involves setting up certain groups, gaining information, some diplomacy so we can take advantage of any situation.
*Racketeering/extorsion: also known as taxing. The team must be made up of a speaker who will adress enforcers who can beat the crap out of someone who isnt paying and preferably can stay hidden until the victim attacks or tries to pass anyway.

Basic command structure
Shadowlord: The kingpin, the big cheese.
Shadowmaster: Runs a specific gang
Advisor: Each leader appoints an advisor

I was also thinking of having each leader bringing in a quota. Not fullfilling your quota for the week/month could get you demoted and someone else promoted. True mobster style of course would get you killed when you disappoint the boss but we'll keep executions for treason and stupidity.

Let me know which operating branch you'd like and what you think your position should be. I will most likely put potential leaders through some tests to see if they got the right material.

Roido applies for the Plundering/Theft branch.

I will go for intrigue, I dont mind manipulating others to better our organisation. I hope, however, that this doesnt rule me out from everyday theft.. icon_wink.gif

As for rank, I am not sure whether I can be available often enough to apply for leadership of the division. However, if no others want the position I will take it.

Heh, look for Az as the first with his head on the block due to stupidity..

Well I guess I only fit in the "Racketeering/extorsion" section... maybe more as a protector and enforcer than a speaker...

I, obviously, request admittance to the Extortion group. "Beating the crap out of peple who don't pay" sounds like a dream come true.  Reply with quote

I think I would do best in scamming or racketeering/extorsion, but I'll pretty much do anything on the list.

Since we have so few members at the moment, I will not limit any players to just one division. I myself enjoy doing all of those things, and would not like to be restricted to doing just one of them. As the guild grows we'll see what happens.
