I had heard whisperings of this and personally, I'm not sure its necessary. I think that with the lands being fairly quiet and dwindling numbers in the loremasters profession as it is, opening yet another guild will be spreading people too thin. I also thought, though correct me if the current Guildmistress has changed this, that the Artisans were already a neutral guild?
Just my two cents.
