Since this day [21st Adras 27], its members [the Bearers of the Fire] have been pursuing their aims according their codex, as the protection of the weak, the fight against the darkness and the increase or rather protection of knowledge as well as the enjoyment of the pleasures of life. Particularly the former three aims of the codex have been immediately resulted in a conflict with the so called order The Temple, leaded by Avalyon el'Hattarr and Verdazar Ivinius during those days, and who have dedicated themselves to the darkness as well as the Unmentionable.
After kidnapping, mistreating and transforming the state of appearance of former companion and member Aelorn Galathras during Imras of the year 28, as well as ignoring of the demand of reparation by the Temple, both orders went to war at 22nd Malas of the year 28. This state has been existing for five years. During those days both sides have clashed several times, whereas the Battle of Varshikar at 14. Adras in the year 29 has been one of the peak of this conflict between the Light and the Darkness, when the forces of the Light were able to make their opponents looking like fools in an impressive manner. But this battle has not been the end of battle against the Darkness, however it encouraged the Bearers of Fires to forge ahead irresistible for their ambitious aims as can be seen in the report about the combat of the demon Mandrel Renoe by the bearer Amarien von Varda.
The truce with the temple did not last long. The disciples of the unspoken acquired control over the city of Trolls Bane by intrigue and treason. With this base of power they forged plans to attack individual members of the order.
As a result the order declared the truce abolished and recruited brothers in arms for the battle gainst the darkness. Also remarkable was that the order could win the orc tribe “The Darkest Mountain clan” as companions. On the 18th of Zhas in the year 33, the order recaptured Trolls Bane and defeated the temple.

Tell me about it. Especially that Verdazar guy...Nothing but a bunch of noobs.
I have seriously lost count of the amount of times the Temple tried to take over Trolls Bane. It really was embaressing after a while... like Team Rocket forever trying to steal Ash's Pikachu in Pokemon...Achae was shown the temple once by Dain, and once they used her neutral druid status to try to change things in Trolls Bane i.e. there was a law no Moshran worship in the town I believe.
I think most of the problems you raised were actually a consequence of the perception you had of the group, rather than the actual way in which it was actually organised. Now that it's all long done and dusted I hope that if I speak frankly and honestly about the Temple, it's intentions and all, that people will actually believe me.Damien wrote:Yeah, bad thing about purely conflict-oriented groups (=villains) is that they can be fun in the beginning, but become annoying after a while.
Bad thing about purely "evil" groups is that they mainly cause conflict and everything else (=nice RP) with those characters would be very, very inconsequent RP (which gets annoying to those outside the group as well, example: "You're arrested, criminal !" "But i'm no criminal RIGHT NOW...") you get what i mean.
Most more "lasting" fun, player-side, that did NOT annoy other players, i've seen with playing groups that do have a goal, but are defined in a way that allows them to interact with other groups/guilds also on a friendly base.
All you need is a kind of moral code, identity and some long-term goals that don't involve conquering or dominating everyone else
