Noble warriors, upright wizards, selfless priests - gallants and bravos of Cardhuntria: You may stop reading, for you are not my audience. For the rest of you cutthroats and baseborns, I have an offer you cannot refuse. Visit us at the Fallen Fortress, bend your knee for just a moment, and convince us that you know which end of the blade to hold or whither to point a wand, and you will find riches and respect in equal measure. Join our NinetyNineKnaves (ICK) and begin your epic journey from anonymity to infamy. We are not friends, nor brothers, nor comrades. Our name will be cursed, not celebrated. The lucky and ruthless amongst us will die rich and alone, whilst the rest will dance the hangman's jig to a cheering crowd. Few will weep at our funerals. Such is the price of success and greatness, for between now and the time that Death claims your worthless hide, you will feast upon the glint of bloody coins and the tears of cowards. And for few, so painfully few!, the rank of LordKnave may one day suffix a name that is only spoken in whispers. We are not anarchists, but our rules are light and few. Those who cannot keep them will find the short remainder of their lives full of incident: 1) Win. By any means necessary. Do so creatively, or uncreatively. Honorably or dishonorably. But win. If you are accused of 'cheating', simply thank them for the compliment. It means you are winning, 2) Never flee. A dignified 'retreat' (that is, after having achieved two points) is acceptable. Snatching up your skirts after the first failed whirlwind and making for the treeline makes me, your founder, look a fool. There are far better ways to make me look a fool. Tankers (often spelt with a capital 'W') will be beheaded and then asked to leave, 2) Help your fellow Knaves, not out of love, but because a strong fellow is in your own best interests, 3) Be kind to your opponents. Because nothing frustrates them more than a kindly word and some 'heartfelt' advice as you wipe their hearts blood from your blade. There are better ways to frustrate an opponent than to swear, stall or speak in meaningless letters. If you cannot think of any, your time with us will be remarkably short, 4) Have fun. Because without it, life is simply a bad joke with nobody laughing, 5) Learn your numbers. If you need directions to the Fallen Fortress, ask for a Knave in the Lobby. Until then, mind the shadows.
