There are multitudes of reasons for not allowing a mage to be in the Order. From an actual RP standpoint I disagree with it, but from a "We only have 2 members in the Order now because 3 of them were mages and so we've lost all our guild." I get it. Here's a scenario, totally theoretical. There are four members of the Order, one is online the other three are timezoned and sleeping (lol sleep.). There is some mage activity, but it involves the one online Orderites mage buddies. (Yes very specific example but I can give you tons of scenarios which is why I picked no) What do you do? Ignore mage activity as an Orderite to avoid crossover? You have to right? Even worse, the orderite acts on it and blatantly is caught (whether intentional or not) in some crossover to avoid exposing their alt.Kitty wrote: ↑Sat Dec 14, 2019 9:32 pmThey stopped allowing mages in the Order, as far as I understand, because the majority of the Order was made up of mages, and that didn't make a whole lot of sense. (Maybe I'm wrong, I wasn't here when that decision was made.)
The majority of the Order does not have mage alts - again, different situation, and I fail to understand why you keep harping on that particular point. It doesn't match.
Yes, a very specific example but it hits MY point. Do I think the mages in the Order is a direct comparison to this issue? No. Do I think the Reeves to BHood is directly related? No. Do I see similarities in what COULD happen because of the crossover policies in place? Yes. I do.
