I was waiting for this! :D Since one of my two mains is an Alliance rogue, it's one of the areas I'm more well versed in. Two questions, both about SI:6.First, do you think that SI:6 would have non-human rogues as well? While I don't know if we actually see any, to me it always would have had to make sense -- While magical disguise can get you so far, having a multi-racial spy network opens up more intelligence doors, and humans are good at integrating other races into their ranks.Second, less of a question and more of a point, the SI:6 has its dark side too. Check out the quest line involving them in Theramore, involving quashing a dissenting group to preserve the peace they have with the Horde there. It involves character assassination, murder (the bit with the ship) and forgery. The political implications are actually quite scary, and I've wondered how much other dissent against the King (say) they've kept quiet.

You do realize, though, that the quest involving the Theramore dissenters have you diffusing an otherwise politically dangerous situation.Theramore's a vital line for Alliance influence into Kalimdor and if the deserters and rabble rousers were given free reign, it would spell doom for Jaina and Co.It's as if Theramore didn't have enough trouble as it is, with their infiltrators being killed off while trying to protect what little land they have in a swamp when the Horde is trying to muscle their way in, the creeps.

Oh, no question. What they're doing is absolutely essential.Doesn't stop it being scary.I've always wound up seeing SI:7 as (not six, I got confused) as a bit like the MI6 (that's why) squad in Spooks. They're the good guys. They honestly want to protect and keep the people safe.But they're no less scary for it. As they've noted, They're the Rulers.

you do realize the guy they have you assassinate is a traitor, who was involved in having the king kidnapped among other crimes, and he was connected to a certain rouge who they wouldn't be able to get by going through proper channels

Wait, what? Which quest are you talking about?I was talking about killing all the privateers in the boat with the propaganda documents.(Also, the Spooks are MI:5. What is up with me and numbers today?)

I believe, Sean, that you will find that SI:7 has at least one gnome and one dwarf as members. You are sent from Stormwind to see a dwarf on your way to your lockpicking skill. Also, I think there might be a dwarf in the SI:7 headquarters in Stormwind, talking to Matthias Shaw. The gnome in the Stormwind Castle garden (outsie the Library) is a gnome. Now, admittedly, neither of these, I think, has the SI:7 credential on their nameplate, you're sent to both by SI:7; one for rogue skills, and one for the Missing Diplomat quest chain.Now that I think of it, in our poisons quest chain, there's a night elf agent of SI:7 (again, only by association; you're sent to him in Westfall by Shaw, I think).
