    Wait, so why are we telling this guy where the Godsblood is again? I like Elim just fine, but the Pilgrim isn't a good guy, so I'm curious as to why we're playing him as one. I mean, we'll send Alia off to certain death, we'll sacrifice a troglodyte for ULTIMATE POWER (yes, it backfired spectacularly, but it's the thought that counts) and we'll turn the entire Duskhold into molten slag, but we'll draw the line at not helping Elim. Seems kinda schizophrenic on our part - what are the practical advantages of telling him?

    Until I'm swayed, I'm all for continuing to be a cunt and going with 2 on this one.

    Resources for the future. He likes us, and doing him a solid will give us an ally in the future.
    Eventually we will split with the Legate and start seeking our own power, having the Ashguard's loyalty will be a good step for that.

    Let's flip the script: what are the practical advantages of not telling him?

    That sounds good, but the Ashguard seem to be loyal to their duty above all else. We might earn some gratitude, leeway, or a favor, but I seriously doubt we'll get their loyalty. Every damn body we've met seems to be out for themselves or their god or their organization, and they don't hesitate to screw us over, and harshly, if it is expedient to their goals to do so.

    Elim is very contrary to the Asguard's status quo, though, and he's going places. Yes, everyone has zero problems sacrificing and screwing us over for their goals because that's the best way we can serve their goals right now. But we're not staying a miserable, powerless no-name forever. I'm thinking of this as building connections for the future.

    Eh, I'm pretty sure there'll will be enough opportunity to screw it up and thus make a name for ourselves.

    Don't worry, the greater the humiliation, the sweeter the victory.

    It's the =][= way. We have to be meaner, smarter and more ruthless than our Master to usurp his position.

    Did Baltika9 not notice that the person immediately before him who were paging hoodoo, were, in fact, hoodoo himself? :M

    Hey, if I want to deliberately misunderstand the phrasing in a post, I'm going to do so, gosh darnit. :rpgcodex:
