Or they could just... Disappear? Being an urban legend is almost as good as being completely secret. And I'm just going to stress the lack of communication once again. If a bunch of (non-secret-society) experienced warriors coming together just to overthrow the government is as unbelievable as you said, if they retreated as quickly as they attacked, it shouldn't be too much trouble to cover their tracks. Sure people would talk about it, but it would eventually die down, with the lack of proof and all.BobSagat wrote:It doesn't matter what they're called, it's functionally the same if everyone knows that there is a secret society of elite benders and soldiers. At that point, they might as well come out with it.
