I think one way of addressing this is to have something that is worth keeping 'secret'. Something along the lines of, how does Hallifax actually float?
Re: The Illuminators/Illuminati problem of "secrets" as a core RP identityI think one way of addressing this is to have something that is worth keeping 'secret'. Something along the lines of, how does Hallifax actually float? How does one become truly Enlightened? What horrifying sacrifices have to be made, what grand realizations are obtained to reach this state?Notice the quotation marks on secret - it's not easy to keep anything really super secret. The trick is to make the concept so horrifyingly brilliant that everyone has a vague idea of what it is, but no one wants to really talk about it. Then you can form the secretive atmosphere from there.
Per a clanhelp by oldMysrai, concerning the original Burning Revellers:*snip*The Burning Revelers are the oneswho fill the drinks, cash the chips, busk for every bawdy play, andsweep up the confetti in the rare moments of quiet. While many areperformers, and many more are unabashed hedonists, the only requirementto join the Revelry is to wish to care for the city culturally, even ifsaid culture is often the kind found growing on the wall of a publicprivy.*snip*The quieter side of the Burning Revelers, if it can be said to have sucha thing, is one of affectionate caretaking: it is often the Revelers whosweeps up after one of the citys many riots, it is the Revelers who makesure everyone arrived home safe after the dance, and it is the Revelerswho hold the citys metaphorical hair back after a hard night out.Community is the heart of their work.*snip*
