    Okay, you lost me on that one. Vanial's personality is not at all what I think of when I think of Naga.
    The Naga, at least during my time, tended to attract the Mhaldorians who were more quirky and off-the-beaten path than your standard HAIL THE SEVEN TRUTHS, WEAKLING Maldaathi or Blood Congregation type. Especially ones like Vaniel (or young Jir, for that matter) who could have long conversations with heathens that juuuuust dance on the edge of hinting at heretical sympathies and can easily leave people with the impression of "is this person actually Mhaldorian." Made for good spies. 

    Also, that sense of humor. 
    I think this is kind of a myth the naga held for a while that was part of a greater pattern that ultimately led so many naga to simply say naga > mhaldor and led to half of them defecting for the ren. There were plenty of quirky people in every mhaldorian house, including the squarest of them all, the maldaathi (I say this lovingly!). The naga tended to insist they were completely different and unique, though, for who knows what reason, and this only got worse towards the end of the house's lifespan from what I can tell. It was ultimately a weird sort of isolationism that tried to play up differences rather than similarities with the rest of the city, often manufactured.

    Now, don't get me wrong, I loved the naga at one point. But the EF had Dethea, Merador, and Jaryn, ffs. There are very few characters in the entire history of Mhaldor as quirky as those three, and Dethea literally covered herself in bling as Tyrannus. The BC had people like Tali and the Maldaathi had Carmain, too, both of which were 'quirkier' than any Naga off the top of my head. The most well known Naga were people like Watchman, Jurixe, Yig, Ulrike and Katia, all of which were pretty stereotypically Mhaldorian--even if they were very interesting characters within that.
    I mean, I can always come back, rejoin mhaldor, hide in a shadow and play again. I just never really got along with the ren of Mhaldor, but I hadn't really been playing much before it happened anyway, so I was more lost than most. I do miss many of the people in Mhaldor, some less than others. 
    ALso, kinda nice to be listed amongst those people, have to admit

    Herev casts a menacing gaze at Iloisee before flinging the falcon-shaped strawberry at her forehead. He mutters something that sounds like 'falcon slay Iloisee' under his breath.

    Ygia wipes silver-flecked water from the edge of a dewy, wing-backed scimitar before tucking it into her scabbard.


    Lii creases her brow in a frown.


    Lii says helpfully to you in a cool, smoky voice, "The Eminence is there."


    Lii points accusingly at Herev.


    You look sceptical and say to Lii with an archaic, Eastern accent, "I'm not about to use the Eminence as a scabbard."

    You conjure up your illusion:

    One of the snakes within Herev's cup begins to slither and coil around the rim, a small strawberry-lace tongue darting out in a silent hiss.


    Herev screams and throws his cup of fruit across the room.

    Micaelis's Newspost: Then there is Darkness. Then there is Hashan. You are the training grounds upon which we test our children. You are a myth, a passing of a shadow. An illusion of purpose and resolve never to be realized nor understood. You speak of Shadows as if you understand, but the only Shadows that laud over Hashan are its histories of miserable failures.





    Edit: I am happy in the direction Hashan is taking, and yes, I used to be Hashani! Just make sure you send a message with your progress instead of a newspost! Always better that way :). Good job with the tanks, too. It's a good showing that you guys marshaled together some forces... just be sure to not lean on retal raids too much, since they're really slow and kind of annoying for both sides if there's no defense party.

    Have to give them something to rally behind and be angry about, even if you sound like a patronizing douche within the final product. :) Would like to see Hashan flourish and continue their upward trend, only serves to improve the overall quality of the game itself. Props to Sobriquet.

    I was really pleased with @Micaelis response, perfectly worded and not just  " Hashan sucks, we've done 10 tanks a day for a month". I know we don't have the combat might of other cities but really pleased we are doing -something- offensive lately even if it's not ground breaking. I just hope it doesn't turn into a 6hr long guard killing spree and demoralise everyone. 

    I'm trusting a little here in an appropriate response, I'm aware, but always good to get people engaged.
