Obligatees’ Status of One


*** DISCLAIMER – THIS BLOG IS FICTION AND THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTION OF ANYONE WHO PERSISTS IN THINKING IT IS NOT FICTION ***

Obligatees’ Status of One

 If one of your Obligatees has a Status of 1, no matter how much use she or he has been in the past, it is very likely they will not be of much use for longer.

Most of the time the Obligatee has become near useless to you anyway; you then stand back and watch her or his enemies close in and the entertainment unfold from a safe distance.

Sometimes you need that Obligatee for just a bit longer until you get another Obligatee in her or his place.

Then you play a dangerous game of how much your Status will be affected by using your Obligatee.

If you play the game correctly, the danger will be more than compensated by the Status you gain when your plan comes to fruition.

If you play the game badly, then your Status and allies will be affected for the worse.

Sometimes you do not wish to ally with your Obligatee’s enemies.  In that case, you avoid all contact with the Obligatee unless there is something in it for you.

If you have information to sell and her or his enemies have not approached you, then you make that fact known.

I have found that it is better when you are able to ally with her or his enemies than when you sell them information, but sometimes all you come away with in life is the money.

The monetary gain in my present circumstances is always welcome, but gaining an ally has long-term benefits which can lead to saving money on much-needed information, especially as I no longer have servants to collect it.

If an Old Vampire manages to claw her or himself up from a Status of 1, she or he is both feared and respected by all Old Vampires as very few manage to do this.
