Cloak and Dagger

Alistair,

I’m a member of a secret society (you’ll see in a moment why that isn’t a terribly ironic thing to say). I just found out that there’s at least sixteen different ones, all of them working as random cross-purposes. It strikes me that this isn’t exactly efficient, and I get the feeling that all of these random power grabs leave us exactly where we were before. I suppose what I’m asking is: Do I need to found a super-organization with its fingers in everyone’s pie?

Cloak,

No. You shouldn’t do that. A weakness of secret society members is to assume that they are more prone to original though than the common man. You propose to create an overarching secret society affecting and observing all the others as if nobody else could have already done so? Don’t be naive.

Been there, done that.
