Just got out of an admin meeting where it was again re-affirmed that the Dominion gets a guaranteed spot on the Overlord Council, with the world's smallest concessions made to weaken that power.
What do you guys think? Does this seem fair? No other guilds in Bloodloch have this privilege. It's really messed up to me that "lore" is used as a crutch repeatedly because Bloodloch was founded by Abhorash 400ish in game years ago. The modern Dominion isn't an Abhorash-style-vampire, and in a city where Might Makes Right, it's mindboggling to me that guilds that could easily outmatch the Dominion in combat if it came to it has to somehow just be like "oh gee golly we accept that there's an overlord position that can't be budged."
I'm utterly maddened by this being treated like it's solely something that matters through the lens of lore. Game cities are player-run-institutions that have mechanical authority over other players. Lore isn't the only thing that matters.
Am I crazy?
I know I'm salty. I really am. I'm this close to never logging in again over it.
What do you guys think?
"We're taught Lord Acton's axiom: all power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. I believed that when I started these books, but I don't believe it's always true any more. Power doesn't always corrupt. What I believe is always true about power is that power always reveals. When you have enough power to do what you always wanted to do, then you see what the guy always wanted to do."
