    The True Britannians gathered around the large wooden council table in Castle Britannia. The room was filled with angry shouts, snide remarks, and traitorous accusations. The anger and hurt was palpable within the ranks of the True Brtannians, particularly among the core leadership but if the faction was to heal, the issues dividing them had to be brought to the forefront and put to rest.

    Each True Britannian was afforded the opportunity to speak, whether they were a prominent guild leader or simple foot soldier. There were times when statements sparked heated debates and others when words would draw hands to weapons and lips to whisper the first arcane syllables of a deadly spell. Yet at night's end, no weapons were drawn nor spells hurled.

    The True Britannians waged a battle that night, as long and hard as any sigil defense. This was not a fight against any Minion of Minax, Elitist mage of the Council or Servant of the Shadowlords but against an enemy far darker; the doubt, anger and fear splitting the faction, the enemy within.

    The sun rose over Castle Britannia as the meeting adjourned, the True Britannians walked away exhausted but victorious. The true heart and dedication of the True Britannians carried the night, as the Military forces set aside ego, distrust and anger to unite under one banner. No one was naive enough to believe that a single night would resolve all the issues that divided the faction, but all left with the hope that that the coming dawn would bring the changes the True Britannians needed to move forward.

    Out of Character Clarification:

    This was very much a real event. You can see on the boards some of the discord among the True Britannians. The group however is working to move forward and put aside their differences.

    This is the meeting which Altec mentions in his post and brilliant illustration [lucky it adjourned moments before SL showed]

    All TB guilds have merged into two guilds, the Order of One [Our Military Units] and the Minocian Partisans Resistence [An elite thieves guild].

    Many people in TB have made great sacrifices and set aside ego's and differences to do this. It is not an easy thing to give up a guild and merge into another. It is also not easy working with people with whom you have not always seen eye to eye and it is impressive to see everyone working to do so.

    Hail Poo,

    Send a Pigeon to my home in Whispering Winds (Icq: 96629882). I am excited to meet with you and your men. I have followed your writings on factions for a long time and didn't realize you had a force in the land of great lakes. Looking forward to meeting you,

    Lore Denin, Commander of the Order

    Some of us are female....

    I also want to talk to you (and Poo) about KDL, another TB guild. I'm still in it along with a few folks who are also in YAD on other shards.
