The Council of Seven

By order of the Guild Council

The following document is restricted to Guild Personnel with Paragon-level clearance

Viewing by an unauthorized party will result in immediate sanction enforcement, by means of an Aetheric geas.
Sanction enforcement extends up to, and encompasses, immediate termination and/or removal of the soul.
Do not proceed past this point without the required soulbound counter-geas.

A foreword

I guess this is what we get to call ourselves now. The Council. I tried not to make it too pretentious - Void forbid we ape the Elytrians and their stick-up-the-rear magus ascendants. But yes, there's seven eight of us (I had debated altering it to the Council of Eight, but we've built too much on the name now for it to be worth it. Besides, Celena and Ezzamuth are more or less inseparable), and we're a council. So logically, it fits. And there is just that slight touch of pathos there. These dossiers are written up and maintained by... oh, what does it matter now? Point is - reader. Whoever you are, be it some hapless spy, Guild employee, or one of us hoping to stroke their own ego by some measure. Listed below are the Guild's finest. Lords and ladies of the ephemeral tides, warriors without peer and holders of power without equal. Above all, stalwart friends. Those who have built the Guild into what it is today, and those who guide it to whatever it may become tomorrow. Respect them, fear them... but above all, enjoy the read. A hero isn't worth much without a saga.
