This is just a list of a few pointer's on how *I* feel a wanderer should be, and how to avoid becoming what *I* dispise in some wanderer's. How to avoid becoming a social wanderer.. What is a social wanderer you asked? A social wanderer would be a wandering monster that is basically in a clan. How is that you ask? By protecting it. Sure, they may try to deny that this makes them a part of a clan, but deep down it's the same thing, because you're playing a clan role/working a clan job, which is gaurd duty. First, let me list the thing's I see as reasonable. A wanderer with wanderer friend's? Makes sense! You would think wanderer's would have something in common with other wanderer's, and hell, everyone need's a friend.. A wanderer with social friend's? Sure, why not? Can't hate *all* socials, and some diserve respect, at least in my opinion... I have a few social friend's myself, and there are quite a few social's that I can't say I'm friends with, but I don't bother their lair or kill them either. Fallen for instance.. I respect them, quite a few of their member's have kicked my ass, and I feel they've earned their place in grendel and have made him proud. So I leave the Fallen alone, and even have conversations with a few of their member's. I also leave there lair alone. Sure... They're rich in resources. But what good are resources to a wanderer? Plus, if I really insist on getting resources, I get them from the uglie's I kill, because raiding a lair for resources isn't worth the trouble... I've tested Fallen's defense's and found them to be rather good, so until I see them slacking, they need'nt worry about me. Chosen... I respect a few of their member's as well and leave their lair alone for the same reason, but there is also alot of their member's that I just don't like in general, so whenever I see them out in the feild I kill them. Now then, social friend's, respect for social's, reasonable... Protecting their lair? Not reasonable. I would think grendel would expect them to figure out a way to take care of their own lair, not have a wanderer do it for them. So now to the pointer's.. As a wanderer, these are the two big one's I've been confronted with.. One, a social asking me to protect their lair. "A wanderer is totally tearing us apart, can you go kill him/her for us?" No... Simple as that. Deal with it yourself, it's your lair and that's your job. The second thing I have been asked by social's.... "Follow me to the requiem of infinity lair? I don't like them and owe them one, I'm trying to raid their lair and can use your help." "Sure, ok" so I follow them... When we get there, I kill the person that asked me to help, simply for being that pathetic, then get back to whatever I was doing before.. Anyway, as I said, this is just a personal viewpoint, and what I do when it happens. Take it however you will, though I hope it helps any wanderer's that haven't already strayed too far from what I believe grendel wants.
