That's why you'll never see a Great Guild.

But the leader is still called an Ilhar.



Hm. Interesting. I always figured that the leader of a guild just went by some different denomination.

Fun fact! :3

Hmm. I have been thinking on the differences between the TK and the Chellian mana uses.

I honestly believe that once we have training and resources we can attempt to create a new type of focus. The sealing foci. Since foci are designed to have a mana input and then a mana manipulation output, and given how Chellians have made a golem armor to react and seal seeds, combination of the two (if we're allowed to) could yield us a demon trap, usable by just pouring mana onto it. (Ghostbusters!)

If the leader of the Guild of Flowers really is tainted...Does that mean she's a summoner? Or is it more likely that she was caught in the middle of an interclan conflict and was tainted in the crossfire? Regardless, this would make her a target for the Kyorl purge squads right? For someone who's tainted she seemed rather wary of the Vloz'ress...

Most likely the second. I think one can make more money being a summoner (as respectable as prostitution is in Chel) than by leading the guild of flowers.

This reminds me of that situation we had concerning whether or not that Vloz'ress teacher at Orthorbae was tainted or simply orange eyed (me thinks he turned out to be tainted, but can't remember). So which is it? The colorist says she's not tainted but Kern says she is...I'd put my faith in either of them to be honest (and there are so many characters in drowtales, big and small, major and minor, that I'm sure its easy to get confused as to who's what)

He's tainted - I should know, I wrote his Athenaeum article! :)

[LINK]

Good grief, that was years ago now... *eek*

Anyway, in Maliir'kha's case his eyes appeared orange due to a trick of the light (an in-universe way of explaining away a colorist's error) - that was what was handed down to me in the article composition thread here. If the Flower Ilhar's eyes appear off-colour (and they still look red to me...), that's the official explanation for the discrepancy.

As to who has the greater authority: Kern is the writer, project manager and director - I think everyone can agree that he has the final say on the canon. If he says a character's tainted, then she's tainted.
A clerk thought that Curzon's memorandum was balls. But he was afraid to say so directly, so he wrote faintly in the margin "Round Objects". Lord Curzon replied in a note: "Who is Mr. Round, and why does he object?"

She probably got caught up in a battle between other people, and inadvertently tainted, instead of being a summoner.

Writer trumps Colorist, just a miscommunication, easily explained away by CONTACT LENSES (which were proven to exist in the previous challenges game :3).

Anyway, That sounds like a cool idea Pariel :3 we really DO need to get a concensus on how foci work -.-; so we're not blundering around in the dark.

Or she decided from some other reason to Tainte herself. Perhaps the beomce "stronger" (Ver'Drowendar propaganda) or because she witnessed what happens to people wo become demons and decided to Tainted herself to prevent her from that faith. Not everybody is a victime.
Well in the end it doesn't matters, but it shows us that even the leader of a minor Clan is at least partcially safe from being killed by fanatic Kyorl.

I doubt the Kyorls would cut her any slack if she wandered into their territory, but you're probably right that as the leader of an important business guild in Chel she's probably a less desirable target than the Vloz'ress or Sharen (who taint ALL of their members and who are prone to be violent). Najwa is probably considered too "small time" to be considered a major threat to the "Purity of the children of Sharess" (i.e. other than being tainted she's completely harmless). Though its just as likely that the Kyorls are afraid to target someone like her because attacking a legitimate, respectable businesswoman would likely cast their already bad reputation to all new lows (gotta remember most other clans are wary of the greyskins). Plus...She herself questioned whether the Vloz'ress would behave themselves during the festival (probably earns her some brownie points there, making it clear she's not in league with them)
