Although your post wasn't addressed to me, I feel the need to respond
as it deals directly with my profession (see the difference Kes?)
You make some very interesting points in your post. However, many of
the generalizations you cite are either slightly askew or only reflect
current guild memberships. As Tukar pointed out, there are and have
been fighting Alchemists and Craftmasters (certainly more in the recent
past than at present). There are also many non-fighting or PW
Loremasters and Artisans. All 4 guilds are fairly diverse in membership
attitudes and alignments.
As for a loremaster get together, 3 guilds have been trying to do this for
quite some time to discuss professional interests, etc but we have been
thwarted by the Artisan Guildmaster at every turn.
As for a new Parrian loremaster guild, I doubt seriously if either the
Craftmasters or Alchemists would be willing to uproot and move, even if
the Gods permitted such a thing. We tried to erect a Loremaster guild
chapter house in Parrius but were denied the right to do so. The
Artisans were denied the right to a chapter house in Springtown. And
Lord Apollo has made it clear in the past that the Parrian loremaster
guild IS the Artisan Guild.
Discussions with Parrian leaders and the posts they have made make it
pretty clear that Parrius is not opposed to the Artisans per se. Rather,
they are opposed to the Artisan Guildmaster and HIS attitude towards
the Parrian government. Look at his help file and you will see he has
had attitude problems with EVERY government that he hasn't
controlled. He has been ejected from different cities so many times, it is
said that he now keeps his luggage packed at all times.
So the problem is not a mismatch of city and loremaster alignments.
The problem is Catt.
