I Swear to God this is Not an Act of War

So, the Phoenix branch has fallen

The City is still in a state of quiet chaos. Violence is on the rise. With the proxies out of the picture and no longer bullying local gangs and law enforcement into their perspective places, a huge power vacuum has opened. Every gang is making a grab to fill that gap including a few from neighboring towns and cities looking  to expand. While the Drug Cartel has always had a presence in Phoenix, they have shown up in force to expand their trade. Hell, ambitious cops are getting into it too, funny how quick a crusader turns to a raider isn't it?

And that's just the more obvious of the hell raining down on Phoenix. Its what you can't see that you should be worried about and I haven't seen anything from the other cults. I doubt they are just sitting back out of quiet respect for Truth.

In any event, I can no longer stand back and watch a once great holding get torn apart. 

We've begun buying up raided proxy safe houses under the guise of a legitimate business and are, more or less, renting it out to ourselves in an effort to disguise who we are. We have quietly been claiming undiscovered holding that were over looked for one reason or another and providing aid to any stranded proxies we've found hiding out in them and are making every effort to either absorb them into the Free Market or to transfer them to a new town and division to serve Father under a new oracle.

Since I have no idea if Truth is ever coming back, and if not how long it will take to get the area back under control so a new oracle can step in, I've been using everything we could recover from Truth's Tower to make some money to be saved and later put at said oracle's disposal should they ever arise. I've been setting aside the supplies we've been recovering for just the same reason. We will reclaim Phoenix, and if I have anything to say about it, the oracle that steps up to do it will have these funds and supplies at the ready to make sure the job gets done.

We've been trying to buy up shares to Truth's corporation but that's been proving difficult. While a fair few of the fallen did have stock, many of the bodies aren't turning up and those that are turning up aren't being identified. Could be as many as 7 years before their aliases are finally declared dead and anyone could stand to inherit those stocks.

As long as the Free Market is holding up in the area, we're gonna see if we can't lay low and sell off some goods to the warring gangs to make some money and keep on their good sides.

As a final note, I would like to reiterate that this is not the Free Market making a power grab. We are simply putting our foot in the door and keeping it open for the next Oracle.

--Sincerely, the Lord Guardian Fracture.

    1. Well these hands were made for holding. Be that's entirely beside the point. If I didn't grab it, we were gonna lose it entirely.

      When the time comes to reclaim the area, I'll happily hand over all I managed to save.

      I'm grabby with the best of intentions. Truly.

      Now if you'd kindly quick crying foul on every little fucking thing I do, you meddling half hearted cunt...

    2. What's with all the swearing? I could've sworn you didn't used to swear THIS much...

    3. As surly as I am ,I have to agree. "Cunt" was rather unnecessary.

    4. My patience has it limits. Picasso isn't the only one who can throw a bitch fit. I just don't do it quite as constantly as her.

    5. But calling someone a cunt. C'mon Fracture, you are far more classy than that.

    6. Call me a heretic, but I rather think Fracture gives the word a charming patina.

    7. Thank you Sanna. Your support is both confusing and appreciated.

    8. I'm suuuuure you will. Asshole.
      (and no, I don't care about the word cunt)

    9. Despite the veiled necrophilia and rape threats you have made against me Fracture, I know class when I see it. You're still a shitty arse twat though.

    10. If being a cunt means being a badass like Nat who calls people out on bullshit, then that's kinda cool. ^_^ Hey, I've never been called a cunt before! This is a special day for me.

    11. For you it means being a senseless conformist that can't help but be what people tell you to be and who had to be told that she should still be angry about things that happened longer than a few hours ago.

    12. You're a badass proxy, and I'm a little girl. So pardon me for my apprehension about expressing how much of a dick you are. Some of us talk to save our asses.

      Delete
    13. What are you six?

      And believe me, your talking is not about to save you from anyone. No one likes a flip flop, they feel funny on your feet.

    14. Sixteen. Most on here call me a little girl. Even after brutalising and killing someone with a cistern lid. Not a label that's very easy to peel off.

    15. That's a common running age. They're just old.

    16. Sanna, all you have to do to call people out is just DO it. You're already well on your way to being a 'badass like me'.

  3. Unlike most of the people here, I believe you. Then again, I have seen you when you really did intend war. This is much better by far.

    Perhaps peace between factions is possible. Perhaps.

    1. Aw, Marshmallow. Thank you. You know I love it when you talk possibilities at me. Makes me feel like I'm rolling dice.

      On a serious note, I would like to think peace is possible too. I think we'll get there. Eventually. Probably.

  4. I for one believe Mr. Fracture's claims that this is not a power grab! He's already got quiiiiite a bit of power, seems silly to make such a desperate bid for something so meager, dontcha think? Hi Frakkyyyy~!
