How come these threads always pop up right after IC events? I am shocked this isn't locked.

If you want competent control in the rinth, play competently. If you get unlucky and die despite or perhaps due to your playstyle, shrug and know that it is better than dying to NPCs.

There was a number of rinthi gang leaders with 'zero' combat skill that thrived for the longest of times.

I forgot his name now. But the creator of eastside kings elf gang had a lot of elves following him that codedly were very adept in combat. While he himself was basically completely untrained. He literally had no time to practice skills, he was too busy schmoozing.

Krak, it was Krak. He was a burglar with the worst stats I have ever played, and every element listed in his mdesc. ;)

EDIT: Damn our gang name was so cheeky.

There's always IC events.  I'm thinking of a string of events, going back two or three RL years.

My concerns is over how dependent the Guild's power is on individual PCs being coded killing machines, rather than an organizational soft strength. Additionally, I'm concerned that the Guild isn't the best clan for being a city-based human criminal, as they can't offer even a fraction of the benefits of the Arm, the GMHs, or noble clans. In fact, I don't think they offer much more than a PC clan. I've seen uncoded PC groups with nearly zero staff support easily out-compete Guild PCs, routinely.

And while you're right that a certain event was the straw that broke the camel's back and prompted me to post this thread, the fact is that players who have no idea what this event is could read this thread and still have no concrete idea.

Like me. I sort of gathered a basic possibility, but hardly any details. It's also such a common possibility, it really doesn't reveal anything.

Krak. Yessssh. I would visit and keep an eye on his daughter for 8 years+ after his death easy. Kept her mother "mostly" untouchable by the rinthi elements. Or helped anyway, she handled her own.  She's probably a playable entity at the moment, somewhere around 25-28?

The Rinth is one of my favorite places to play a character over the years, and it can have plenty of teeth, although sometimes it seems to come and go with waves, that may not be the case virtually.

I've always felt like it was an area that could be further tapped into.

It comes and goes in waves, because one side of a war will twink up and cause mayhem while the other side is trying to roleplay out their struggle.
Then a month later, it reverses, and the OTHER side is the bunch of hidden backstab fighters and vice versa for years and years.

It always has teeth. Sometimes those teeth need to be sharpened, and sometimes they need someone to bite.

The Rinth works best when the active entities are more interested in playing the narrative out than they are in backstabbing everyone with the wrong ears. It doesn't need to lose any teeth to do that.

It's a slum in a city, not a Fortnite battlefield. Folks ought to take that into consideration.
All the world will be your enemy. When they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you; digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.
