    Dangerous Awnshegh in Anuire

    Gorgon not leave his fortress? Bloodtheft is harder that way. Besides,
    remaining in one place is an invitation to attack. Magian, Raven, the White
    Witch, Rhoubhe--I'm sure all would be happy to add Raesene's power to their
    own.

    I agree with this. In the live campaigns I play in the Gorgon isn't a
    threat because they take play a distance away but I don't see why he
    couldn't or wouldn't go out a fight with his armies. What a better
    way to be able to bloodtheft other regents if he is in battle fighting
    them.

    I agree that the Gorgon most likely does leave his fortress for various reasons,
    but most of his bloodthefts are commited within his own walls. In one
    supplement, Blood Enemies I believe, it says that the Gorgon influces scions of
    a particuar line to grow stronger (through underlings that would weaken the
    scion's rivals, etc) then subtly encourages them to seek him out. I'd imagine
    that he has dozens of such scions under his watch. He is a creature of subtly
    and patience. He'd rather wait to kill a more blooded scion that spend months
    chansing lesser ones.

    As to the invitation to attack, I'd assume few would dare. The Gorgon is a
    potent wizard (20th level, at least according to the cardsheet) and most likely
    has tons of Guards and Wards type stuff all over his fortess (and even if he
    isn't a mage, he would definitly have some underling do it for him). As for the
    awnsheghlien attacking the Gorgon, it wouldn't be worth it. If I'm a tainted, 8
    bloodline and I kill el-Hadid, I gain 2 points. If I kill the Gorgon I gain two
    points (maybe a little more if he's the last of his line). The Gorgon is the
    only awnsheghlien who definitly has a tighmaevril weapon or three.

    Actually, Old Rocky is probably just afraid to leave his house unattended in
    case some overeager young scion decides to go look for the Roele bloodline
    :)

    Gorgon's seneschal: "Uh, sir, while you were away rampaging in Mhoried, this
    really handsome hero-type passed by and did something on the ground over
    there, and then there was this thunder..." *splat*

    I am surprised at this. If this is true, I missed it completely. My take
    on the Gorgon has been that since he is practically ageless, he has developed
    patience. That and the fact there are others out there who can actually
    compete with him. So he is more than willing to move slowly, as his sense of
    time is different than it was. At least, that's how I see it. I do not presume
    to speak for anyone else.

    I think I definitely read it somewhere. IIRC somewhere it says something
    like that the gorgon is really hard to beat not only because he's just
    touch all by himself, but also because of the fact that he next to never
    leaves his keep so you'll have to brave all of his guardians and stuff
    like that before you'll be able to brave him. And somewhere else it is
    speculated that the reason that the gorgon never leaves his fortress is
    that his power is containted there by the last Roele's sacrifice (indeed
    the entire complex hums with power).
    Well, lotsa blah anyways...
