With Aldric joining the group Matthias got the meeting started. He was going to do the debriefing personally. The other officers sat back to watch the first class reaming Brynthyl and Shortios were about to receive. Damn that stupid mage for getting her into this.
“Okay, so what the hell happened? Why did you both need to be in the tower? I only needed one person in there. Brynthyl, you were the first to head there so you start. Explain.”
“I was heading to the cannon since I was closest but right before I got there the midget firecracker-”
“Cut the name calling!” Apparently Matthias was more angry than she had thought if he was already yelling.
“Fine. Shortios blinked his way past me to get to the cannon. We…disagreed about who should be on the cannon and because he wouldn’t get off the damn thing and let someone more…stable on we died.”
“What the hell?! You’re blaming ME for this Rainbow Brite?!”
“If the curly toed shoe fits garden ornament!”
“Shut it! Your side Shortios!”
“I was the closest DPS to the cannon so I headed straight for it and yes, I used blink to get to it before the sparkly bandaid. As healer I felt Brynthyl needed to stay with the group and do her job which is keeping everyone alive.”
“I could still heal everyone from the tower! They were all still in range and eyesight! You needed to be down there to keep the Dragon Shadows in check! No one else could down them fast enough!”
“If they had a healer who, I don’t know, HEALED THEM then they could have!”
“What did I tell you both?! I don’t want to hear any more name calling from either of you! In fact, both of you be quiet!”
There was a moment of silence where Sabrina assumed the officers were all using private chat. She was livid. The damn mage was trying to push the blame off on her! She knew it! He should just take responsibility for his mistakes.
“Okay you two. I’m gonna talk here so you both keep quiet. Neither of you should have been in that tower. Brynthyl, you’re the healer and you should have stayed where you were and taken care of the group. Shortios, you should have stayed with the group as well and kept downing the Shadows. You were put in that group to keep the aggro off of Brynthyl. You on the cannon would have been as problematic as her on it. You both exercised really bad judgement and your actions caused the entire guild to fail the encounter.”
Sabrina squirmed a little. Matthias could be right, she hadn’t been thinking of the group when she’d headed for the cannon. She’d been convinced that she could handle it and still do the healing for the group. Maybe she could have done things better.
“Since this all happened because you guys can’t get along we’ve talked to each of the members of the guild and tallied up the costs of the lost materials for potions, scrolls, and the repair costs for their gear. Both of you are going to pay each and every guild member for their losses. Also you will not be using your current gold. The two of you are going to quest and raise the amount without the help of ANYONE ELSE. You’re going to learn to work together and get along or you’re out of the guild.”
Oh. Dear. God. Matthias wanted her to go insane. “You can’t be serious about this.”
“As the plague. I don’t know why you guys have it out for each other so bad but there’s no room in the guild for it. I’m not going to be putting up with your bullshit anymore. I’d hate to lose either or both of you but you’re not leaving us any choice. Suck it up.”
She had to group with the sleepwalking fireball belcher? This was her guild! She was one of the charter members! Okay, she had made some bad decisions. She should have stayed with the group. Matthias was right this time. It was partially her fault that they failed but teaming her up with the lawn ornament was cruel and unusual punishment. Argh.
“Fine! If that’s what everyone’s decided I’ll abide by it. I’ve got no problem paying back my guildies. You ready to get to questing firecracker? We got a lot of gold to earn.”
“This is my guild. I’m not leaving it just because I can’t stand you sparkle butt. I’ve got gold farming down to an art form. We’ll pay back our guild mates in record time and then we can get back to ignoring each other’s existence. Deal?”
“Sounds like a plan, Murder Death Kill.”
“What the hell is that from?”
“You seriously haven’t seen Demolition Man? Oh my God. You suck so hard. We’re going to have to expand your movie repertoire or else I’m going to end up dying of boredom around you.”
