I'm not the world's biggest fan of the "chessmaster" interpretation of Celestia's character, but I'm 100% on-board for "opportunistic and more than a little devious."

Who else wants to guess she wants to turn the Thieves' Guild into her own spy network, with Rarity at the head?

She might just be happy about all the wonderful blackmail she just gathered. She's set for at least a few more decades now.

Celestia hijacking the Thieves Guild for her own (hopefully far more benevolent) purposes I was going to guess.

Setting up Rarity as the new head of the Thieves Guild, on the other hand, that I had not considered.

As long as the guild gets paid, they probably wouldn't have an issue. Dunno how good the loyalty rating will be.

Digo: Plus, most of the members won't know who the real leader is.

Only Isabeau, Garrett, and Imoen (I think) will know who used to be the leader, and they probably won't be hard to convince.

Heck, Garrett will probably be happy for the change, and the other two probably won't take much convincing.

Also, this opens the option of Rarity's boutiques being cover for the Thieves' Guild spy stations and approved smuggling.

The players shatter the GM's plot, and then walk right into a plot that writes itself. What better justice?

That's what I like to do when I can. The players failed miserably?
