Agent is a sinister and elusive opponent who never goes into battle alone. Agent generally uses standard combat techniques, but differs from other Warriors in that he is secretly in the employ of an organization that has a direct interest in the forum’s main topic. The organization may be political, commercial, or even criminal, and it’s Agent’s job to post messages that advance the organization’s interests. For example, several Agents who have been hired to promote a new theater production will invade theater discussion forums, and while energetically plumping for their own production, they will pick fights, spread malicious gossip and post fraudulent reviews about competing productions. Some Agents are benign shills, while others are malicious crusaders. Agents typically use hit and run tactics to avoid detection, but sometimes they can be outed by alert forum members who have seen them in other forums.
