Apollo, the god of lightto Everyone

You are quite right in your sentiments, as is Angharad. Novices do need

guidance, but they should be guided to what suits them as individuals.

Most have an idea of what they want to be, fighter, magical, healer, good

or evil and this is usually easily translated into a few suitabl;e choices.

It is up to us all to then advise them in a totally unbiased manner as

to what is best for them, even if this means directing them into the

arms of our enemies. This can only be right because a novice situated in

the wrong guild is of little or no use to anyone, including themselves.

The above should go without saying, but perhaps its time to just underline

it while the subject is up for discussion.
