Do not fill this in!==What They Want== * The Syndicate want two things. ** 1. Money ** 2. Influence, leading to #1 * When the Syndicate bother to think about a moral system to justify their actions, they usually go with '''Randian Objectivism''', specificially the parts about how selfishness is a positive trait. ** Solid quote from Rand herself : ''"Suffering is not a claim check, and its relief is not the goal of existence."'' That's a pretty good summary about how the Syndicate feel about the people they hurt; human suffering is the norm. If I cause it in the pursuit of my ''own'' happiness, that is just the order of things. * Everything the Syndicate does is in pursuit of money, either right now or at some point in the near future. Long term planning is not their strong suit; they will destroy the environment for the resources ''now'' and not even comprehend that they may be reducing their profits in the future. * Because of this lack of foresight, the known role of the Board of Classics is to steer the Syndicate toward longer term goals, like knocking over a country to divide it up for resources or establishing Sprawls. The Board does this through a combination of the fact that they are respected enough for everyone to listen (corporations are willing to go along with the plan because they know everyone else will also go along) and the fact that ''everyone is completely terrified of them'', a reputation the Board does their best to maintain. ** The Board of Classics is very much the man behind the man; if Paradox were an urban fantasy setting, they'd be a vampire mafia. The imagery of vampirism is a pretty good one to push with these guys; I can't actually tell you why, but having these guys be pale, sun-adverse and not seeming to age is totally encouraged; trust me, it'll fit in.
