Another possibility is how the group started and how they ended.

They could have started out as a guild of thieves and assassins, but when agents of the Pharaohs reached out to them, they could have found it more profitable (and improve the long term survivability of the group) to join the Pharaoh. Thus they just became a secret sanctioned group of killers, thieves, and spies, rather than a rogue group. To this day, they may be too good at their job that they aren't really noticed and could even be working against each other at times (ie: there may only be a handful of them with 120s in all related skills and that's all they need)

Conversely, they may have started out as Pharaoh agents, over time, disagreed with the route the kingdom was going (or alternatively, they were completely loyal to the original line of Pharaohs that were descended from Senliten ... of which Osman and his daughter are part of).
Over time, they may have attempted to subvert the usurping line of Pharaohs, but it was going well. Eventually they were left as a shell of their former organization, and it was safer to retreat/disband with what was left.
Their final act might have been helping Senliten's line escape and in time they became the Al Kharid spymasters.
Meanwhile, another group stayed behind and started looting the tombs looking for "something valuable and important". But as new recruits came on, the exact thing and reasons they were looting became forgotten or ignored, and after a few generations, the southern desert Black Ibis became nothing more than a band of superthieves.

I feel your pain Drakan.
I think I only ever scored 1 piece of Black Ibis clothing from PP on my main.
The only reason I completed set was buying it thru Vic's store. Makes you wonder how he got his hands on sets of them? Maybe HE is part of the Black Ibis legacy?

Got a regular sceptre and the legs last time I played (a few weeks ago, ~800k xp). My friend got the sceptre of the gods. Vic and Nic and Alice should go to that special place where Lucien, Grayzag and Bandos went.


The Behind the Scenes Bar is a nice place and all ...
