Information


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

There are three classes of information : rumour, proven information and proven beyond all doubt.

Rumours are things heard on the wind. This means we have heard or overheard them at parties or our servants have obtained the information for us.

I do not mean that our servants are unreliable when they are quite the opposite, but since everyone uses their servants to obtain information it is all too easy to plant false information.

However, rumours are valuable but it is first needed to be determined whether they are proven information or false.

If they are false then they can be used to send an enemy on a wild goose chase which will hopefully end with loss of Status while you are masking your true intentions from them.

Proven information is proven from several sources. This can be passed on to your allies as it rarely turns out to be false.

Sometimes a rumour turns out to be true and proven information false. This is the gamble we take when we passing on the information or rumours. Sometimes things play out for you; sometimes not at all.

Proven beyond all doubt comes from The Ruler or his Men. These sources are unquestionable and have never been wrong.

It takes time and money to see whether or not a rumour can be made proven information and unfortunately I do not have the time that I used to have.

One of the few benefits my position on The Committee has given me is to obtain information about more people.

I wish it could give me more sources, but after you have spent ten years in a country you know all the Old Vampires that exist there. After one hundred years you will know all their peccadilloes.
