Re: (TFT) Magic, Magicians, numbers and power

Reminds me of a political campaign I once had.

The Wizard's Guild decided it was high time to bring everyone under the
fold so they could fix prices, etc.  The Guild themselves actually started
a propoganda campaign against all hedge-wizards, so that the average
person would perceive them as evil and want to get rid of them.

The implication was clear : Join or Die.
