2. We need to stop or quarantine the east gate immediately, or we could let what you mentioned happen.
3. This is not going to be fixed easily. I think the best course of action is to level up, and summon more guardians.
4. Like it or not. This isn't going to be solved by pacifists.
5. I agree that we should encourage sorikonian culture. That could be helped by tiering up and getting some monks (They have the best pacifist abilities)
We also should get rid of the other threats, so something like the east gate doesn't happen again. (We are out of position) We can't let anything escalate in our position. This means that we have to be ready to deal with any threat. i.e. Don't let a mission be on the board for 3 months and then get totally out of hand. In other words we have to multitask.
I think we should put them in non combat situations like helping the average person.
1 - You can still remain neutral and have guards, yes, that's a point. Though usually in that situation you're the one who has decided/consented to having guards, rather than it being forced upon you.
2 - Luckily it seems like Sashi Eten has some kind of wards that keep undead from entering the city, or something? That's not going to protect the villages, though... agreed that either way, we should deal with it ASAP now.
3 - Definitely on the leveling up part, and I assume that the Martial Masters are doing what they can on the summoning guardians part, but that can't be infinite. We have to think of other courses of action, too, which is why I'm proposing that we start acting on everything we can now, before it gets out of hand. Or, to put it as you said, multitasking - being ready to deal with even really awful things, and keeping missions from being on the board for three+ months.
4 - I don't see why not. True, not *everything* can be solved by pacifists - which is why we're here - but that doesn't mean that nothing can, or that we shouldn't try to salvage what little we can in terms of the way that Sorikonia does things.
5 - Getting monks is a good idea and helps *us*, but I meant more for the rest of Sorikonia, since it's their culture under attack.
A new thought on how to deal with the militia - they don't like being pacifists because it makes them helpless, right? What if we said that we would train them in some of the trademark pacifist skills (snare, disarm, knockback, things like that) if they promise to re-take their vows of pacifism and keep them? If we're the ones training them, not the Martial Masters, then that means that they're not legally a men at arms force and it shouldn't affect Sorikonia's status as non-militarized. That way they're not helpless, they can still help out, and they're not breaking their vows of pacifism. Then we can send them to go do things suited for their sort of thing (like as Dev said, generic helping-people missions), and we can go deal with the more violent stuff.
(Note: I am aware that we need a guildmaster knight for that. At worst, this makes this a long-term solution. We could also hire a guildmaster knight from the guild to do this, if people agreed to work together on it. Or - if we're doing mini-seasons again, then old character can come out of retirement soon, and we can sic them on it.)
