If I wanted to be brave I'd join the army, if I wanted glory I'd sing a song or get a part in a film. Instead I play this game.
The reason, if u must know, not that it is any of your business, that I am not posting a guild roster is simply an RP Reason. Mercenary bands aren't, historically, very well liked as a rule since they fight for cash rather than glory and aint too bothered which side wins a conflict as long as they get paid and live to fight again. Because of this posting a roster or keeping a list of who is a member on public display seems to me a silly idea. So if you really wanna know who we are use the in game chat commands but don't expect me to post a public list of who is involved with us.
Since there is a link on these boards showing who is online and what guild they belong to and there are in game chat commands showing who is online and what guild they belong to we aren't trying to hide, we simply aren't bowing down to the wishes of the almighty Tom. Sorry, you just aren't scary enough for us to kow tow to your every whim.
Now if the almighty Oh-Bac-On was to inform me that posting a roster was something I was required to do as a guild leader then of course I would be quick to comply.
Do have a nice day now wont you.
This cracked me up when I read it. I can smell the tension in the air.

That's not a service. I said the possibility of you making a guild roster merely out of convenience, as I can find you guys anytime if I really want to. Please don't take me for a fool, or you'll end up being pulverized in about 119 ways.
But you may actually want to make a roster, just about your services, and its prices, and not about your guildies.
By providing a guild roster on these boards I'm taking time out from doing other things (OK it isn't a lot of time but it IS still MY time), the convenience you speak of is convenience to you not to myself, so yes it is a service since I am providing you with some thing so that you do not have to type !who guilded (yes it's a REALLY long winded command ). I see no reason why my time spent unnesessarily providing you with oh I'd say about 2 seconds worth of your time should be free.
As for taking you for a fool I wasn't trying to do that at all, you did a good enough job of it yourself. As for pulverising me in about 119 different ways just set the time and date and we can meet in the arena, I could use some PvP practice
As for our services I am actually working on that and will post it once it is complete.

That's only on the server you're on. You didn't mention the !who all guilded.

So, to try and prove your point that I am a fool you go and scour the forums looking for it and come up with a partial quote from a message I posted on a totally unrelated subject and put it here in a vain attempt to make me look stupid?
Do you really have nothing better to do Tricky?
See the thing is I admit to my faults, I know them all and, although I sometimes fail misserably, try to not let them show.
I can be arrogant, stupid, foolish, rude, argumentative, ignorant and more, I smoke, sometimes drink, use foul language (although not on the boards or ingame of course) and a whole host of other things too. Guess what, it makes me human. I'm quite happy about that to be honest, but at least I know my faults and admit to them quite freely.
However rather than picking at other peoples faults I tend to let them show themselves for what they are. I don't think it very nice or funny to rub other peoples faces in their faults. It is one fualt I don't have
Now about that challenge, when did you want to meet in the arena again?
The Realms Marshalls are a semi Mercenary organization that promote the balance of all life and all entities. There must always be a balance of power between good and evil. Without this balance life would cease to exist. As Marshalls of the Realms we walk, we take it upon ourselves to watch, withstand and evolve with the ever changing seasons across the planes.
As a Realms Marshall part of our responsibility is to sometimes provide escort and protection to those in need. (For a small fee of course) We also serve as scribes and you might say our activities both discreet and indiscreet rival those of the Harper Scouts. Some call us cousins. Others simply believe that we are Harper Scouts ourselves. Don’t be fooled with the idle talk and whispers of the misinformed. We are the Marshalls of the Realms and we will maintain balance and order so that we can maintain life.
We were here, we are here and we will be here when things once were, will be and now are.
