Report of the Ranger Meeting of 2nd August 2014

As Bittty Mac'Od was unable to attend the recent Ranger meeting ((OOC Saturday 2nd August)), I have decided to provide a brief summary of that meeting, for all who may be interested.

After arrangements had been made to ensure that interpreters were available to assist all of the civilisations, the meeting was opened by Orphie Dradius, who welcomed everyone and outlined the intentions of the Rangers, to fight the Kitin threat and not to fight other nations or religions. The point that Rangers consider all nations and religions as their friends, in the fight against the Kitins, was made frequently.

Peapom asked if it was possible for Rangers to defend the place where they live, against an attack by factions or powers. Orphie Dradius replied that Rangers are not asked to let themselves be killed or their homes be sacked. However, it was also pointed out that the defense of strategic places or resources would be discussed at a future meeting.

Orphie Dradius went on to state that, for the first few stages of training, the requirement had been reduced. At this point Domei raised her hand and said "Well, I still have a problem with your answer. In the past, we have come close to a war between nations, some even experienced hostilities. I experienced massive attacks by marauders from the ancient lands, and short ago, a Fyros army raided the marauder camp in Hidden Source. My problem is to take sides in such cases, avoiding it is hard as well, as i love my chosen homeland. Yet I consider it part of Rangers' discipline to maintain neutrality.". At this point Teeneemai raised her hand and waited for acknowledgement.

In reply, to Daomei, Orphie Dradius said "I know this is hard, Daomei. We never said it would be easy. However, the rangers are a force to fight the kitins. If you are to become a ranger, you will have to eventually detach yourself from allegiances. We are a sword in the hand of hominity; it would be a shame for us if hominity did turn the sword on itself. If two friends fight, be the shield between them.".

Teeneemai was now acknowledged and she said "If I may, in response to the questions about defending one's home, I am completely neutral and have maximum possible fame with all races and religions. I manage to avoid the need for aggression against my fellow homins and I will help them regardless. I believe that this is the best approach to bringing homins together.".

Orphie Dradius agreed but stated that it was a "bit hard to follow that way of life."

There followed various comments from Subrosa, Bubbason, Depyraken and Kiwalie, supporting the concept of unity between the civilisations and religions.

Now Wuaoi Yai-Zhio took the floor and remarked that the number of attendees seemed to be rising, then went on to explain the purposes of our training, as follows;
" .... it is not enough to simply sense the magnetic flow of your current environment. As a Ranger you must be able to use your magnetic senses to reach out over large distances to find the places where there are differences in the magnetism. The Ranger scientists have prepared a number of magnetized ambers and given them to Ba'duty Aepsie. He will give one of these ambers to anyone who is qualified, and give you a task to train you further. I warn you that it is not easy, and that sometimes your perceptions may be mistaken -- you must know your own mind and pay attention in order to benefit. The more you practice the less often you will be mistaken, but there will always be a chance. In addition, the act of searching, especially by those who are not yet fully trained, puts stress upon the amber. The better the quality of the amber, the more stress it can resist, but also the more valuable it is. For your training, we can only afford to use easily available and inexpensive amber, as there is a chance that while you are using it to search your amber will overload and shatter. If this happens to you, simply return to Ba'duty Aipsie and he will give you another one. Do not be afraid to do so. It is a sign that you were working to advance your skills. ((OOC Concerning fame, Ba'Duty will require a minium of 0 Kami and karavan fames, as was mentioned last week. Civ fames require 25 in all four. Next weeks final task will require 30civs fame and 20 kami/kara fames ))
(( Perla: ((can you add this the text in the NPC comment when she declines to train players?))
((Wuaoi Yai-Zhio: (( all 3 Missions will be available for some time, and That is a good idea Perla. ))

Wuaoi Yai-Zhio continued "Ba'Duty Aepsie should now be ready, I will remain to assist those who may need my help.".

Veekee then asked "What if a person is kami or kara aligned?".

Wuaoi Yai-Zhio replied "If you have sworn aliegence to any Nation, or one of the Powers, you will not be able to undertake this training.".

The meeting was brought to a close by Orphie Dradius at this point.

For those who may be interested this meeting was attended by 24 homins and homines, in addition to the two Rangers.
