Reading the chatlog with Lord Parkin, I realize that I actually warned L.Parkin that I WOULD share the chatlog if someone on my team asked to see it... So I guess I should live up to my word... Spoiler : @ - About your question regarding whether they know I was representing my own wishes and not necessarily the teams'...Be serious, do you really think that a player as experienced as Lord Parkin would really believe that I have the power to unilaterally offer anything? Obviously he knows that I am speaking for myself, not the team... That is why he put my name in the letter (to highlight the fact that he knows the alliance was MY idea not the whole teams' idea) and why he sent an email instead of continuing to negotiate through chat. But he would not have sent anything without the MSN conversation happening first. As damnrunner has already pointed out, there is no harm in us offering some kind of deal. We can always back out later. Everyone knows (or should know) that what is offered in chat will have to be cleared through the team. I repeat that I refuse to be hamstrung by anti-chat rules. I tried to be respectful and discrete about this, but my attempts were rebuffed.
