Leadership: the EVIL profession (mostly joking)

Has anyone thought that (if role-playing) that Leadership is getting the axe simply because most of its activities make more sense if you consider the mercs to be evil? Let me explain:

- Patrol the mines, end up with a mining claim, giving the owner "the right to exploit minerals." (Quoting from tooltip). How does anyone get the right to exploit after only 4 hours with a sword? That's right, walk in, slay everyone, return with a claim.

- Protect a diamond shipment. More like ambush it, kill the survivors, take the money & goods.

- Refugees. Those mercs aren't rescuing refugees. They're kidnapping them. And putting them in little boxes suitable to be mailed around.

- Destroy an enemy camp. Can someone define 'enemy'? Can we see them in game? Didn't think so. They're just slaughtering people for fun and profit.

- Fight off spellplagued. Help those people? Hah. Kill & loot

- Escort a wizard's scheneschal. For 18 hours. Show them around town, get them drunk, and walk off with their bags.

- Escort a young noble. Has anyone actually seen the nobles after the trip? Just wondering.

Feel free to add more below. :smiley:

    I'm sure the mercs do more with the Seneschal than get her drunk

    This is hilarious, however it was in the wrong subforum. Moved it to "Art and Fiction". Carry on.

    Considering that my main is a DC of Sune, I recast my Leadership tasks in terms of the world's oldest profession. "Escort Young Noble on Trip" is the most honest of the existing task titles for me.
